The Defender Riot Lead is made using 2 layers of durable mil-spec webbing to create a strong, tactical dog leash for Military (MWD), Police ( LEO), Personal Protection, and Schutzhund (IPO) Working Dogs. The heavy-duty K9 leash includes a close-control handle to help keep the dog at your side, but can be neatly tucked out of the way using an integrated elastic loop when not in use.
A clip-in point near the snap allows the handler to use a standard climbing carabiner as a secondary clip-in option. Additional clip-in points can be added along the body, which can be used in various configurations making this an ideal multipurpose lead.
The lead can be customized with multiple attachment point options including a Kong Frog with swivel providing a secure, climbing rated hardware option. A custom option allows a personalized name to be added with embroidery.

2nd Handle at 12"
The extra handle lets you keep your partner close when working with large crowds or working close to other officers.
Tactile Response Points
Response points located at every foot let the handler know how much line is out and how much is left without having to second guess.
The elastic keeper loop allows you to securely stow the handle so it remains out of the way until needed, which helps minimize chances of catching the lead on environmental hazards
1.5" Clip-in Point
An integrated alternate clip-in point, near the snap, allows the handler to use a standard climbing carabiner as a backup clip-in option.

Has a thick snap to it. Feels strong for bigger dogs, yet handle is supple to my fingers. Also, grab handle has good location closer to end. Like it
So good I ordered another!
My boy chewed his first Modern Icon leash (my fault - left him unattended with it on the ground) when he was a puppy. Even with the minor tears it works but I decided to get a new one. Love Modern Icon!
Great leash for a strong pup!
This leash feels comfortable to use and is something I will buy more of in the future!
The Kong Frog adaptor is a great addition, but I needed to make sure the collar has a slightly larger D-Ring else it can get a little caught.
The best canine gear
We always buy Modern Icon, no matter what we need. It’s high-quality, it’s durable, and it shrugs off everything my pups can throw at it without losing a single stitch.

Fantastic Strong Leash!
The Defender Riot lead is as heavy duty and strong as you could ever want. The clips are high-quality, and I feel very safe in using this for my prey-driven husky mix. The company was a pleasure to do business with, and I wouldn’t hesitate to order from them again!
