our lines with genuine Biothane material, a synthetic material that is superior to leather in strength and durability. They
can be dragged through the mud and wiped clean with a damp cloth. They do not require oiling like leather
lines. In addition, unlike leather that takes months to become supple, our lines are supple from the beginning.
Whether you're training for TD, TDX, VST, nosework, or herding, our lines are a good choice to add to
your dog equipment.
All products are double-riveted with brass rivets. Tracking lines may be riveted at
20', the minimum distance a handler can be from the dog during AKC tracking tests (TD) and/or 10' for Variable Surface
Tracks (VST) and the optional Tracking Dog Urban (TDU) title, or you decide where you want a rivet placed along your
line (in feet) when you order. A handler can easily tell when they are at the correct distance from their dog when
the rivet(s) slide through their hands. Custom orders are accepted. Email us with any questions or custom orders: Palominelines@q.com
For those of you who prefer a rope, we are now offering a rope that is coated with the same Betathane
material as our flat lines. The rope clamps are solid brass. Currently we are offering these lines in Black
and Blaze Orange. The 5/16" rope feels very substantial and is fitted with the same snap we use on our 1/2"
lines. The 5/16" rope was tested and successful up to 700 pounds of pulling pressure while the 1/4" rope
was tested and successful up to 300 pounds of pulling pressure.
DISTANCE MARKERS (RIVETS) ARE MEASURED FROM THE END OF THE SNAP BACK TOWARD THE HANDLE. FOR INSTANCE,
IF YOU ORDER A RIVET AT 10 FEET, THE RIVET WILL BE PLACED 10 FEET FROM THE SNAP END OF THE LINE (where snap attaches
to the dog collar). WHEN ORDERING A LINE WITH A HANDLE, A RIVET CANNOT BE PLACED ANY CLOSER THAN ONE FOOT FROM
THE HANDLE END OF THE LINE. ANY RIVET ORDERED WITHIN ONE FOOT OF THE HANDLE WILL CAUSE THE RIVET TO BE PLACED
WITHIN THE LOOP OF THE HANDLE AND WILL BE USELESS AS A DISTANCE MARKER. WE WILL ADD UP TO TWO DISTANCE MARKERS
PER LINE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL CHARGE. MORE THAN TWO DISTANCE MARKERS WILL BE CHARGED AN ADDITIONAL FEE OF $2.00 PER RIVET.
HAVE A STICKY CLASP? We have a fix:
(1) Purchase powdered graphite lubricant from your local hardware store; (2) Cover work area; (3) Wear rubber or latex gloves;
(4) Gently squeeze a small amount of graphite into the groove under the slide (moving part); (5) work the slide
up and down until it moves freely; (6) add more graphite, if needed; (7) tap clasp on covered work area to remove excess graphite
and wipe clasp clean with soft cloth. We recommend using graphite when Palomine Lines are used in wet environments or
after washing to keep the clasps in working order.
