Love it

I bought three of these about 5 years back for my dogs and am just replacing them now with the same leashes. Love them so much and they held up really well, just needed a fresh look. Love ruff wear!

Knot-a-Leash

I love how sturdy the leash is. Our dog loves to chew on his leashes while on walks (yeah, our bad) and has gone through 3 flat leashes in a year. However, he has not tried to chew this rope leash at all. And I LOVE the heavy duty carabiner

perfect for adventure dogs!

we've got a crazy beagle who can't be trusted off leash, but we love to take her camping. the locking capability of this leash gives us peace of mind, knowing there's no way she can pull out and run off into the wild.
