I got this leash to test out on a trip to Manistee. I was tired of my dog constantly pulling because she has to be in the lead at all time. I've got to say, it works great. The elastic allowed her to be in the lead and not jerk me around. Also, because she's such a troublesome creature, I can't trust her not to hunt down every creature that crosses our path when we take a break or set up camp so the handle was a plus that I could easily clip her to a tree. That part alone sold me.
"The BEST leash on the market for Runners."
I recently started running with my boston terrier and while he is the best running buddy anyone could ask for he can pull and I was about to lose an arm. I was admiring this leash on another dog at the park the other day and though I would try it out. O-em-gee! I love it! And I can tell that he loves it too. The handle has a little cushion which is perfect for me and the attachment to his collar is very secure. It has transformed our runs by giving him a little more room to roam without the choke back and it has saved my arm. We can now go on our 4 mile run with ease together! Thanks ruff wear and moosejaw. Awesome product.
"Perfect. Exactly what I wanted and needed."
I bought this a while ago for running trails and hiking with my dog. My dog is 80 pounds of twisted steel (no sex appeal, that would be weird) and I was worried about the leash not being strong enough to control her but it was awesome. I ordered the large to give her more of a range to roam and it's a great length. I love the hands-free option for running. It's also easy enough to reign her in when we are passing other dogs on the trail. The clip is really easy to use and is easier to quickly hook to her collar. Love this leash!
