I bought this for running trails with my retriever, Odie and it has far exceeded my expectations! The soft handle is super comfy and easy to just loop around my wrist so I don't have to clench my hand the whole time. The carabiner was the selling point for me. Odie isn't super strong, but he's a hunter (like owner, like dog) and he likes to try and take off after fauna while we run so the carabiner makes me feel better about there being zero chance he will get unhooked somehow (he's done it, he's an expert at escaping any restraint). And there's a little thing for holding poo bags, which is major. I don't plan on ever running another trail while holding a bag of my dog's warm poo.
