Military or Police Dog Collar and Lead info needed

Post by BaggyPants »

Does anyone have information or images of german military or police issue dog leads and collars, please? I've searched like a bastard, but "german", "WWII" and "dog" bring up nothing but pages on erkennungsmarke by daft twats who call them dog tags :roll:

Those are good, thank you chaps. I'll go trawl the bundesarchive with those keywords :)

From what I can see, the lead seems to be very like the multi-length police training leads:

I need to get me one of those post-war leads, if only for the scissor fitting on the end :)

Thanks for the link to the Dog Handler site, Cam. Tried to PM you, but it wouldn't let me :?

On wehrmacht awards.com on their wehrmacht equipment forum on page 2 it shows an original guard dog harness and lead.

Thanks, John. I'd already seen those. The clip in the centre is identical on the post-war lead. Eyes will have to be kept open :)
