Questions & Answers

30 Customer Questions

Why is the medium almost double the price of the large?

Is the classic leash tape .75 inches? We have an older worn out one and want a 3/4 inch tale on the leash.
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2018
The width of the tape varies depending on the size of the leash. The width of the tape for the X-Small leash is 1/4 inches. The width of the tape for the Small is 5/16 inches. The width of the tape for the Medium is 7/16 inches. The width of the tape for the Large is 5/8 inches.

What is the difference between the Classic and Comfort leashes?
Answer by ChewyOct 02, 2019
The Flexi Comfort leash has the option to adjust the handle size for the perfect grip.

Does the leash have a lock to hold at a certain length so that you don't have to always push on the brake?
Answer by ChewyOct 19, 2018
To lock the brake, press the brake button and push it forward. To release, draw back the lock.

Needed a shorter leash for city walking and wanted it to be retractable (my dog gets tangled up a lot in regular leashes). I had bought regular flexi leashes before and liked them well enough. To get a shorter leash length, I had to get flexi's XS size. My dog is only 20 lbs and fairly calm, so worked fine with flexi's suggested size range. Leash showed up today and the entire leash including the handle is so tiny it's almost unusable. I could only fit two fingers into the hand hold (three if I really squished them) and the lock/retract mechanism felt very flimsy. I understand small dogs may not need a heavy duty locking mechanism, but with how small the handle is, there is no way you can confidently (or comfortably) keep a grip on the handle with even a small, calm dog unless you have baby-sized hands. Unless you are a toddler looking for a leash for your battery operated dog, buy anything else.

Jury is still out!

I have used this retractible leash before, but with the cord instead of the tape. Their are pros and cons for each and I haven't quite decided which I will get next time. The pros for this tape leash is: Not as dangerous if it gets twisted around dog or myself; it doesn't snap back toward the dog as fast as the cord if you release it when there is slack in the line; it's a little cheaper. The cons are: This particular leash wasn't long enough. I believe there is a longer size, but I think the mechanism may be larger and heavier; it's noisy; it doesn't seem to respond as quickly to the mechanism's action. I really like them both, but because this one feels safer, I would probably purchase another tape over the cord. It would definitely be one or the other.

Quality product that works for a loooooong time!

I like the Flexi brand retractable leashes, as they have proven to be quality products. I'm not sure however that I like the redesign of the handle on the leash. I have leashes that I purchased 22 years ago, and I prefer the comfort of the older handle design over the current updated version. The older handle is flat on the sides and better allows you to hold two leashes in one hand if that is needed, and for me that definitely is needed. Even holding just one leash in one hand doesn't seem as comfortable with the new design as with the old design, and the balance of the leash seems a bit awkward with the new or current design. That being said, if you've never owned a Flexi brand leash, and you're looking for a QUALITY product, you'll be TOTALLY SATISFIED with your purchase should you decide to buy this leash. As mentioned earlier, I have a 26 foot leash that I purchased in 2001, twenty-two years ago, and it is still working!!! I just felt that with an 80 lb. dog on the other end of the leash, it might be time to purchase a new leash. :-)

Game Changer!

I got this to walk my cats and we love it! For some reason, our cats didn't respond well to normal leashes. When we tried this, they started letting us lead more, explored more, and seemed less hassled by the leash/ harness. Highly recommend trying for anyone trying to leash train their cat!

My third Flexi

This is my third Flexi, they are durable, the new ones are lighter than the previous version and I just love them. My original Flexi is 20 years old and still going strong. These leads take some practice and some training on a short leash first, but great for exploring and sniffy walks.

Clasp broke off in less than a month

The metal clasp broke off after less than a month of use. My dog is under the weight limit and was not even pulling hard when the metal clasp separated from the nylon leash. The leash retracted fully into the holder and can’t even be fixed.

Safety strap, good quality

Perfect for our 17 pound dog. I’m able to press the button to stop the length which gives my dog a little information that she needs to wait without it being a pull.

Unhappy Ness

When I ordered my 26 foot leash was told it's backed by chewy , any problem just call for replacement . Well it broke so I called chewy , they can find my info because their complete system runs off someone's email or phone # . Not off something concrete as their name mailing address and their credit card used . Unfortunately for me I change my phone number and email every two months - tho my name billing address and credit card (which chewy has on file) remain the same

Love This Lead!

I and my 70 lb. Pittie love this lead. He loves the freedom to wander loosely, and I love the control when necessary. I can quickly and easily reel Bruce in when I spot other dogs approaching, and can control him if they are aggressive. If they are playful, or once they've passed, I simply let him resume with slack.

Good and easy to use

It works fine, but I like a previous one like this better, same brand, but the older just feels better in my hand and clicks locked easier.
