This lead is meant for the breeds who use a choke chain, or collar or even a harness with a D ring. It's a very strong lead, ALL breeds can use this lead. It attaches to the ring of the collar easily. The snaphook is sewn in securely, for when you want to use the same lead with multiple dogs and want to change over quickly. It comes with a lightweight silver snaphook, which is fine for all breeds. I also offer gold (brass) lightweight snaphooks for $2 more.
