It’s a win!

Love the everything about this leash. I have a stubborn mini bull terrier who often does more sniffing and strolling than walking and sometimes needs a little tug to get a real walk going. The knot-a-leash is the perfect combo of durability for every sniff and step. Plus, I love the smoothness around the handle, and the interim space is a great spot to hang doggie bags.

Love it

I bought three of these about 5 years back for my dogs and am just replacing them now with the same leashes. Love them so much and they held up really well, just needed a fresh look. Love ruff wear!
