I am so happy I purchased the Flat Out Adjustable Dog Leash! I love that I can wear it around my waist and be completely hands-free, or if I need to have a shorter grip on my dog I can hold the built-in loop closer to the clasp end. It feels secure hooked to the back of his harness, and he’s a pretty big boy (approx. 60 lbs, taller, athletic breed) and very strong. Having the leash anchored around my waist gives me more control and prevents him from tugging as much. I finally feel like I’m taking him for a walk instead of the other way around!
