The Ruffwear Just-a-Cinch™ is a rugged, climbing-inspired, utilitarian leash/collar combination. The "collar" is created by slipping the end loop over the dog's head and using the silicone stopper to keep it in place. This creates a trustworthy, integrated correction leash or slip lead, eliminating the need to clip into a separate collar. Great for dogs who pull, and for spontaneous walks, training sessions, and road trips. Reflective rope keeps people and dogs visible in low-light conditions.

Length: 5 ft (1.5 m) Diameter of Rope: 11 mm

Just-a-Cinch Leash

I have really enjoyed this leash for my 85lb catahoula. It is the perfect length plus it is extremely easy to go off least with and there isn't an annoying metal snap to deal with when you are having to cary the leash. This is the perfect leash for the pups out there who really don't require a leash to begin with, meaning they don't pull and stay with you. It seems to be a good quality product and I would recommend this to others.

Best leash I have ever purchased

Fantastic. Our Small Munsterlander has pulled and tugged on leash for 7 years. For some reason, he doesn't pull at all when using the Just-a-Cinch leash. It's easy, quick and effective. Best leash ever.

This is the best slip leash I have ever seen - it is overall very sturdy & can also be used to leash harness a dog for more control as the length is good for that! I would recommend this to anyone!!
