Knot-a-Leash

This is an excellent and high-quality product. It is quick and easy to use. I paired this with the Knot-a-Collar for my long-coated dog, and both do a great job keeping him by my side without damaging or getting tangled in his coat. I am very happy with the product overall, and especially love the weight of the thinner model. The clip is quick, easy to use, and secure. I get compliments on my pup's collar and leash outfit. I will definitely continue to purchase his gear from Ruffwear in the future. I think my next purchase will be the Just-a-Cinch lead to match.

Knot-A-Leash

After my dog escaped from her leash 3 times, I needed a more secure leash. This is where its at!

Great leash!

Love the security of the locking carabiner. I've had a dog break leash and get hit by a car in front of me so this leash provides great security for me Thanks for the idea.
