Hi, I have been involved with the world of dogs, as an enthusiast, all of my life, as my parents owned standard poodles, before I was born. As a child there were many dogs as part of our family, including poodles, and some terriers, but it was at the beginning of my married life, in the mid 70`s I was honoured to be able to own Bondor Afghan Hounds, from the world famous Bondor Kennels owned by Allan Brooks.
There begins the story of the SHUMLLEA affix and as they say the rest is history. Over the years, my husband and I have owned a number of well known show dogs across a few breeds, that have really interested us, which include, the Afghan Hound, Basenji, Boxer, and Chinese crested dog.
I always had to have the RIGHT show lead, to get the best from my show dogs, but they were not always easy to find, SO, I started to design my own line of show leads, and now I import beads, from all over the world, including, Pandora style, Murano glass, Lampwork, Rondelle, Crystal Rhinestones, and Tibetan silver and gold plated, to give that extra bit of **bling**. I can make most leads in any size/colour.
Being the owner of show dogs myself, and knowing that you want the extra neck comfort for your dog but also with the feeling of firm control, and a comfort grip handle yourself, gives you the peace of mind that your leads will make you stand out from the crowd.
Why not take a few minutes to browse my photo gallery albums, and then make a note of the item number, if you find a lead/leash that you would like to purchase, and then go to the checkout, where you can be directed to paypal, to make your purchase, very quick and efficiently.
All leads in the albums are made ready for dispatch worldwide. If you would like to make a customised order, please message me, and I can discuss with you, your requirements for your showleads.
I use strong paracord, made from a 7 strand inner core webbing, with a 550 lb breaking strain, and also the finest leathers , in a variety of colours. I also use 3mm and 5 mm of the finest english leather.
My leads were worn by several Best Of breed Winners at Crufts 2012, and I always use my own leads,
with the SHUMLLEA CHINESE CRESTED SHOW TEAM.
