Extra peace of mind
The locking carabiner gives you extra peace of mind that your dog won't slip their leash. My only complaint is that the clip doesn't swivel, so the twists and turns tangle up either the leash or the collar.
Finally a rugged leash for smaller dogs!
When I started looking for a mountain climbing rope style leash for my 14 lb. wirehaired dachshund (to match my bigger dogs' climbing rope leashes) I was thrilled to see that Ruffwear had one in a smaller diameter rope as well as my preferred shorter 5' length. It's the perfect size for him and the locking carabiner gives me 100% peace of mind that the business end of the leash is secure. As for my end, the handle is as comfortable as any leash I've ever held, with just enough padding so it's not overly stuffed or bulky. Also there's a loop for carrying your dog **** bags there if that's how you roll, but if you don't use that feature (I don't), you don't even notice it's there. If you have a rugged little outdoorsy dog who deserve a cool, rugged leash that's just the right size, I can't recommend this one in the smaller size highly enough!
Knot a Leash
I have both the long and short version of this leash. Love them both!
Tough on hands
If dog pulls, rope burns. Flat leash may be better choice. Love the caribiner.
The casing of this leash tore after 6 months and I had to order a new leash. It would be good for a dog that won't put at much wear and tear on it as a service dog.
