The Ruffwear Knot-a-Long™ is a rugged, climbing-inspired leash in a 30-inch (0.76 m) length. This short lead uses strong, supple kernmantle rope and a secure locking carabiner just like our longer Knot-a-Leash™. The short length is ideal for keeping dogs close and pairs great with our Double Track™ Coupler.

Carabiners not sold separately.

3rd one

This is the 3rd knot a long leash. Only because we need one in both cars and One was lost. They last forever! And are great for off leash I loop mine across my body and don’t have to hold it.

Great lead - perfect length

Would be 5 starts but sometimes the thread slips on the carabiner, good length as we walk the dog to heel when he's on his lead

Short leash with the Y.

It works great with the Y.

Perfect length

Great for keeping one dog close or paired with the double track coupler for a perfect length for 2 dogs running or walking without coiling around your hand several times. The handle is pretty comfortable too. I have 2 big dogs that could probably pull my truck if they wanted something bad enough and Ruffwear has been with us for the past 6 years!

Versatile Leash for One or Multiple Dogs

This leash is great. I also bought two of the springy couplers that pair with it. Sometimes I walk 3-4 dogs with this setup and it's great. The dogs don't become entangled because the lengths of the two pieces are well-designed. The Knot-a-Long can also be used as a short leash, but the security closure of the caribiner requires an extra step to attach it directly to a collar or harness. The closure is very secure, which is particularly important when walking more than one dog.
