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

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!!

Leash is a Cinch

Love this cinch, makes life much easier with my pups as we have to use the leash to let them out at night in the summer. Too many toads in our area!!

Easiest thing I've ever owned

if you are elederly and have hand and finger issues this solves your problems. It is fast also if you need a leash in a hurry it simple. Love that it is padded and has a slide on sizing. Don't think twice just do it!

Great Leash

Love this leash. It’s quick and easy to slip on. Love that I can secure it so it stays high up on her neck where it won’t choke her. It’s also well-made and durable.

Hands off!!

As a dog trainer this is a great leash, working with so many different sized dogs means so many different sized necks. Having the versatility to adjust the size of the loop around neck with a quick slide of the stopper is great. It allows me to have the loop right behind the dogs ears for better control of each dog that gets handled and the loop is evenly pressured around the whole neck not just on the front so if a dog pulls the pressure is even and no pressure isn't put on the front of the dogs neck. No need to worry about putting on a collar, or worry if a collar might slip off especially as many people have collars way to loose. This is a safe and sercure leash for any sized dog/dogs In fact my leash is so great my fellow trainers keep walking off with it and as I write this it actually went home with a client. Man I miss my leash waiting for it to come back soon. Get your own - hands off (;
