All of our sled dog equipment and especially gang lines are designed specifically for hard working dogs who pull a rig ( cart ), sled or scooter. * see images below *.
All SASS dog lines are made out of extremely strong polyethylene rope and solid brass clips. You can choose from a range of colours too.
Some mushers like to mix colours on their towlines to differentiate between the main centre line and the neck or back lines. NOT A PROBLEM. For example, you could have the centre line in Blue and the neck and back lines in Red. This can sometimes help in a tangle situation. Just choose the ‘mixed colour’ option on the order page and send us an email describing your colour combination.
Note : Ganglines for larger teams ( over 3 ) will be supplied with an extra strength centre line, identified by a black stripe within the main colour. So, for example, if you order a towline for 4 dogs in BLUE then the centreline will be blue/black whilst the backlines and necklines will be plain blue. The same applies to the shock absorber ( No.2) and the loop ( No. 7 ). Snub lines ( No.8) will automatically be super strength.
Complete gang lines are available ready to hitch up or you can order individual items from the components pages.
The following chart itemises the components needed to make up a complete towline and covers the most common combinations up to 6 dogs, which is the maximum size of team entry at most British rallies, although up to 8 dogs is possible in some competitions. In training though any size of team is possible with the right equipment. With our lines you can just keep on adding sections to suit.
Note : If ordering complete ganglines, the karabiner and neckline is not included. They are listed in this chart for completeness.
|Karabiner||shock absorber||single lead||single team||2 dog lead||2 dog||2 dog team||neckline|
|2 dog – side by side||1||1||1||1|
|2 dog – staggered||1||1||1|

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you very much for the harness. We have been out for two walks today and Alfie didn’t escape from the harness!! After months of searching, numerous harnesses and possibly hundreds of pounds spent we have FINALLY a found one he can’t back out of!!
I was recommended SASS equipment by friends who run with their dogs and can heartily agree. I’ve had several products and never had any issues. Superbquality of leads and harness that work in all terrain and through all seasons. Whenever I’ve contacted SASS they’ve been quick to respond with an updated status and friendly replies. Will definitely be buying from them again!
