Solved many problems

Excellent quality, good length and when we see a pheasant or a cat it reduces the possibility of a shock and our dogs realizes when the leash starts to pull, she’s at the end. No more shoulder dislocating ****!

Great Leash

This leash works really well. Lenght adjustment is easy and the clasp is very nice.

We both enjoy the freedom!

And it came in handy for walking two dogs recently.

Overall we are enjoying the

Overall we are enjoying the new leash. It is lifechanging to wear a leash around my waist rather than in my hand. My dog has gotten away a few different times, so I have always had anxiety around whether I am going to drop a leash. Well this waist-worn leash is fantastic!!!! I no longer have those same fears. My one caveat is that I purchased the 7.5-11 ft size. What is not clear in the product description is that the quoted length is if you are using the leash as a hand-held. Extending the leash to buckle around your waist easily uses up 2-3 feet, so ultimately the leash really feels like a 5-8.5 ft leash.

Good Leash

Overall I like this leash. I'm a dog walker and I use this for a lot of my walking. I purchased the longer option, because I hoped that it would allow me to extend the waist worn portion long enough to wear over my shoulder like a cross body one. Which it does, and I love. A couple things I would change; I wish it had the carabiner clip that ruffwear's other leashes have. The one on this leash is ok, but not good with the harnesses that have the double metal loop on the dog's back. If used with that kind of harness, and the dog pulls even a little, the two loops pull the clip open. Also, I wish the bungee portion of the leash was a tad shorter, and had a second handle slightly further up the leash. The placement of the one handle on this leash doesn't work with small dogs, or in situations where I may want a little more control on the dog, but not so much that they can't move from my side at all. Overall though I think it's a good leash, and am happy with it.
