About

Taking The Lead is a small, family run business based in Whitworth, near Rochdale. We provide practical, fun and sometimes quirky products and accessories  for both dog owners and professional dog walkers alike.

Here at Taking The Lead Dog Walking Supplies, Dogs are our passion!

Taking The Lead has extensive experience in Dog Walking and dog accessories and we appreciate the need for quality products. Strong, robust leads for strong dogs that pull like tractors, are essential! Collars and harnesses that can take the strain, make all the difference. Poop bags that are reliable and won’t split, are a must!

Drawing on my experience as a Dog Walker, I source quality products and accessories; Collars, Leads, Harnesses, Toys, in fact, all things Dog! We only stock brands we trust, Halti, Ancol, Company of Animals, to name a few, from suppliers we trust. For example, we stock dog toys from America, (West Paw Design Toys are guaranteed tough!) We have Calming Coats and Crash Tested Car Harnesses. We also stock products for you, like bags that are ideal for holding all your doggy accoutrements! Pet Wash Bags that make washing dog towels and bedding easier!

For the professional dog walker, we have a dedicated page for all your day to day requirements.
