Rated 3 out of 5 by CairnsNtollers Teaches your dog to pull if not used correctly
If you wish to teach your dog to pull, a retractable leash is the perfect item. Just the physics of opposition reflexes encourages the dog to lean into his collar or harness and pull to get further and further in front of you. Because of this pulling action I would never recommend this for puppies.
Once your dog understands how to walk nicely on a regular leash then the flexi can be an enjoyable way to walk. But it's helpful if your dog understands when you tell it not to pull or call it back to your side.
Never grab the rope part of the leash as you may suffer rope burns on your hands. Be careful not to drop the leash because the handle may frightened a dog as it comes bouncing behind the dog.
For a well-behaved adult dog with an owner that is informed as how to use the Flexi correctly it can be a useful tool for relaxing long walks. Make sure to purchase the correct size Flexi for your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by intoxyk8 Best expanding leash
I bought another brand of expanding leash once - just once - and never again. The brake on the Flexi is easy to get used to. Putting the brake on is a natural movement. Our dogs are hard on leashes, because much of the vegetation here has thorns and there are poles with sharp edges that sometimes grate on the leash. These leashes last a long time, in spite of the hard wear, and perform really well.

Just the right length for walking your dog, can keep a firm grip on dog so they don't get hurt..

Rated 4 out of 5 by GusdogMerlincat I ordered it online and it was actually smaller in the grip then I expected.
I have another one that has been well used that has a slightly bigger grip and I thought I was ordering the same one this time. That's on me and I know from past experiences that the great folks at "Chewy.com" would gladly replace it but I decided to keep it because it works very well just like the other one I've had for years and my wife likes this one better. I should have given it 5 stars cause the product is great and the service is "absolutely excellent" but I don't care for it quite as much as the other so hence the dropped star, folks with smaller hands would likely see it differently as my wife does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ccmm Easy to Use
I'm impressed with this leash. It is easy to use, I can lock and unlock it with one hand. The grip feels good in my hand and doesn't slip around.
The cord is nice and thick and it is quiet when it reels in and out.

These leashes are great, especially for my little chihuahua's. They don't have a lot of tension and they expand and retract very smoothly.
