Premium leather leads, matching choke type leather collars, instant release and buckle collars and other specialty leather training equipment are available exclusively at Crawmer's Animal Training.


The Gold Line leads are the strongest available with multiple brass bolts in both the handle and hook ensuring maximum security. Every lead is infused with a special acrylic coating affording the ultimate in weather protection and durability. This lead is made for the professional or serious training enthusiast who appreciates the best in training tools.


Each leather dog training item is personally inspected by Glenn Stevans.

If it doesn't rise to the level of his exacting approval it doesn't go to Crawmer's customers.


There is no finer leather dog training lead on the market today. 

The approximate 6' length is ideal for formal training. There is a also a 4 foot available as well as various specialty Tabs for specific application. Many professionals such as obedience, field trainers, and law enforcement prefer the one inch wide and the 3/4 inch wide options. All leather leads have solid brass heavy duty bolt snap. Due to the handmade nature, lengths are approximate.


FLASH !! We have currently available a few RARE 7 foot and 8 foot leads! Why is this important? It is near impossible to find a top quality extra length lead. Very few leather hides are 7 or more feet long! These leads are continuous leather, exactly the same as our shorter versions. Most of what you see in long leather leads are soaked, stretched and mixed with materials other than leather to get what they are telling you is an extra long leather lead. Don't be fooled! We can't take orders because we don't know when we will have these leads again. They are not on the order page for that reason. Right now we have a few. If interested call us 518 477-8230


This length is fantastic for law enforcement application, service dogs, tracking dogs, protection work, schutzhund and scent work.

The World's First Book On Training Cats For Agility

This Book Covers Trick Training and Problem Correction

Two Awards From The International Cat Writer's Association!!

 "Cats are the most unappreciated companion animal on earth." The truth of this quote by Catherine Crawmer is clearly illustrated in her book on training cats. The capabilities of the average house cat are demonstrated starting with basic training on such commands as Come, Sit, and Lie Down. Then the real surprises start. You may have seen cats doing agility equipment but do you know where it all started?

Catherine Crawmer introduced the world to cat agility training in 2000 and in 2001 published this book on the subject. Not only cat sized indoor equipment is being used. Here you will see a house cat working outdoor on FULL SIZE dog agility equipment, including the full operation of the regulation full size see -saw and the jumping of 24 inch high hurdles.

Not only does this book show the surprising truth of what can be done with a cat it also gives the average cat owner the step by step program and the tools to accomplish these things himself.

Perfect for adults or children, this book really breaks cat training down so that anyone can understand it.

There is also a chapter on the training of big cats for those interested in zoo animal training and husbandry management.
