Difference between cord and tape leash?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2017
The difference between the cord and the tape is that the tape offers a deeper and wider bedding so it's most beneficial with larger breeds.

Is this model compatible for accesories like Multi box, LED lighting and adjustable handle? Or Should I be going for New Comfort Only for these?
Answer by ChewyJun 07, 2018
The Flexi Vario is compatible with the accessories.

I will be using this leash for my cat, who likes to sit outside with us and walk around the back yard. Does this leash lock in the fully extended length, instead of retract automatically?
Answer by ChewyMar 17, 2018
This Leash is able to lock at a certain length when wanted.

Can this leash be used with a harness rather than a neck collar?
Answer by ChewyMay 29, 2019
The Flexi Vario Retractable Leash is compatible with harnesses.

Not for larger hands

The grip area is too small. My husband can only fit four fingers around the leash. For now it's fine because our rat terrier is elderly. However we have another rat terrier pup coming and my husband will need to be able to have a solid grip on the leash until the pup can be trained.

If your dog pulls DO NOT BUY

I have a Labrador who gets easily excited and sometimes when we walk and he sees a squirrel or something he torpedoes off. Well, a couple of days ago I was distracted with picking up his poop and didn't notice that the leash cord got around my leg. My dog saw a squirrel and took off after it as I was still holding the handle. The leash cord cut through my leg like some kind of torture machine, it hurt a lot and I will most definitely NEVER EVER use it again.

Review of item

I thought when it said small that it meant it was for a small dog not for a small hand. I used it once and I can’t use again.

How are you supposed to hold this thing?

I definitely should have read the reviews before purchasing. The opening is TINY. I cannot fit my hand in the opening and therefore have to leave a finger dangling out. I fear that my dog will get excited and bolt and rip it right out of my hand b/c I can't get a good, secure grip on it.

The Best leash ever!

I have bought leash after leash, many more expensive than this one. My 80 lb lab has the bad habit of chewing on the leash during our walks and eventually chews through them. His bad habit has not changed and I've had this leash for 6 months and he has yet to chew through it. It doesn't even look like he's been doing this. My new leash for life!

Small leash

Handle too tiny. Definitely not a good choice for my beagle. Maybe a very tiny dog.

Nice for small dog

This leash is nice for my small Pomeranian puppy. The cord is not too long. I love everything I ever purchase from Chewy.

Cheap but practical for my puppy

Seems cheap and it feels like the buttons operate a simple gear that is prone to locking up, but with that said, its good for the price and for smaller dogs (as in, under 20lbs). Great for time in the park or at kids' games where they need to roam a bit, but need to be leashed. Extends, but not very far. Good for sporting events where I don't want my dog to wander too far and interact with unwanted strangers, but want to give them a nice extra radius a normal walking leash can't. Is prone to wrapping/tripping the dog (or owner), but I think that is to be expected with retractable leashes. Works best with a harness so it doesn't tangle too much.
