Ridgeline Leash

I was skeptical when I pulled this leash from the packaging. I didn’t think it would work at all for my headstrong Jack Ruseel Terrier. Once I tried it I was sold. It reduces pulling and expands out when in use. I love it!

Almost a perfect fit

I use this leash with a carabiner to attach to my pants when I am on the move with my Norfolk terrier Robert. It looks great, feels great, the only gripe that I have with it is that it is a bit short, or doesn’t extend as much as I would prefer (around 30% more). It is good for an airport or public transportation when you want your dog to be able to have a degree of freedom yet still be close to you. When you are purposefully on a walk it ends up a bit too short.

The leash is very much so that I was scared to continue to use it. I tried it out for two weeks until another heavier duty leash arrived. The Ridgeline is probably great for any dog under 45lbs. or so. My girl is part Malamute, Shepherd and Husky, is about 60lbs. and is a super strong puller. The leash was also a bit too short even extended and the clip, although designed well, is small. I keep it as a backup leash in my pack or jacket.

Review of Ridgeline Leash

We are not happy with it. We ordered a second one just to have a spare. They are both Medium but the second one is shorter than the first one. My husband is tall and it is difficult for him to use the second one. We would like to return it and get a replacement.

it wrinkled

at first we loved the leash! It's light, pretty and the stretch webbing worked perfectly. But after using it for 2 weeks the stretch webbing started to wrinkle on one of the edges. It seems that "stretch" has worn out... quicker than I expected, especially for the price I paid.
