This leash is designed so ingeniously. I love not having to hold onto the lead but instead clip it around my waist. The shock absorber is excellent, at least for my 8 lb Yorkie. I really am happy with this product.
I selected the three piece matching harness set for our new puppy. The leash (as shown in the photo), was supposed to have elasticity to absorb pulling shock. There was no elastic in it. It was all stretched out and at my age I need the shock absorbency. I had already taken the tags off when I noticed it. Also, I needed the leash right then. The harness was not useable at all. However, we do like the collar. The metal hardware on all pieces is really great. I have so many Carhartt products, and I am disappointed with this set.
I dig it enough to right a review that is at least 50 characters long.
Very happy with the quality of this Carhartt leash. It has enough give with the stretch, that you don't get pulled. Love it!
We purchased this for our new puppy as we had a similar kind of leash with the shock absorber recommended by several friends. The metal buckle near the part of the leash that clips to our dogs harness wore through the leash and split it in half within a month. Carhartt normally makes good quality stuff, this is clearly not one of them!
