Enjoy an entirely new leash experience with the Flexi Vario Retractable Leash. From the company who has a history of innovation, beginning with their original high-tech retraction system, this leash runs smoothly in and out so that your dog can run freely—and that’s just the start. With the help of the integrated braking system, you can actually direct your dog, and the patented Flexi one-hand braking and recoil system makes it easy to operate. It also guarantees the greatest comfort of use with its ergonomically positioned braking button and constant lock lever, and the patented design features a soft grip and innovative new short-stroke braking system.

Key Benefits

  • Runs smoothly in and out so that your dog can run freely and is perfect for the fast-paced city.
  • The patented, one-hand braking system makes it possible to direct your pup easily, while the chrome snap hook is strong and durable for added strength and stability.
  • Greatest comfort of use with its ergonomically positioned braking button and constant lock lever. The inner spring mechanism keeps the cord, belt or tape under slight tension.
  • The ergonomic soft grip handle and optional accessories make a necessary task an easy one.
  • Each leash is manufactured by hand in Germany, where it undergoes more than 90 quality checks.

Additional Details

Keep out of reach of small children. Never let anyone play with this leash. Avoid contact with the cord/tape/belt and never let it wrap around any part of your body.

Inspect Your Leash & Collar Before Each Use

Make sure that all parts of the leash and your dog’s collar are in good condition and are not damaged, frayed, or broken.

Attaching the Leash & Safety Collar

  • Always use the enclosed safety collar in addition to your dog’s collar. The safety collar prevents snap-back if the dog’s collar breaks, or if the leash disconnects from your dog’s collar.
  • Attach the hook of the leash to the D-ring of your dog’s collar. Never attach it to your dog’s ID tag ring. That ring is not strong and will break.
  • Make sure that the hook is fully closed and securely attached to the collar D-ring and the rings of the safety collar.

Detaching the Leash

Make sure your dog is under control. Fully retract the leash before detaching it.

Drying Instructions

If your leash gets wet, pull the cord/tape/belt out of the leash housing as far as it will go and lock the brake. Leave it to dry overnight in a place that is out of reach of children. When the cord/tape/belt is dry, carefully and slowly retract the leash to keep it under control.

Using the Leash

Always hold the leash by the handle, never by the cord/tape/belt You can also hold the hand loop with your other hand for extra control. Never tie leash around a tree, pole, or any other object.

To bring your dog nearer, follow these steps and never touch the cord/tape/belt:

  • Extend your arm forward and press the brake button.
  • Step toward your dog and at the same time bring your arm to your side.
  • Release the brake button and swing your arm towards the dog and press the brake button again.
  • Repeat as needed.

About Flexi

The idea for the first Flexi leash came when Manfred Bogdahn tried to find a solution for his dog Purzel, who loved to explore. It was 1972 when he converted the starting mechanism for a power saw to create the first prototype for the retractable leash. This entrepreneurial spirit continues to lead the way with Flexi's expanding line of premium leashes that promise comfort, versatility and lasting quality.

  • Great leash

    By on

    This replaces two very old retractable leashes and is a lot better than either of them. The clasp that hooks the leash to the dog harness works easily and is not too small to be hard to open. The line is strong and it halts easily with the stop device. Also the line is long enough for a good investigation by my dog. Very pleased.

    Flexi is an outstanding brand. This particular product fulfills all the functions and operational features that I was seeking for my dog. Although it was a bit more expensive than other leashes I considered, the differential was worth it. With it, I have complete control of my dog all the time.

  • Nice retractable lead

    By on

    Very well made lead. It is a longer length and works very smoothly. Fits the hand well and isn't heavy. Easy to use and releases and retracts with very little effort.

  • Best leash for tiny dogs

    By on

    Because the leash is made of cord and not a flat thick ribbon, it's easy for small dogs to feel comfortable pulling against its moderate tension. I have an 8 pound Chihuahua that was abused before I adopted it, who is terrified of leashes. This is the only leash she will walk with. I have an older 10 lb Chihuahua with arthritis, and she's very comfortable walking with this leash because it doesn't pull hard against her. The small size makes it easy for me to carry it, or attach it to my dog stroller.

  • The best for control.

    By on

    I already had the 16 foot retractable, and just wanted to give my puppy a little more room to run around. This works wonderfully, giving her room and me, control. Unfortunately, she doesn't want to go back inside the house when called.

  • Leash of My Choice

    By on

    I could no longer find the Flexi 26 foot lease in pet stores. Chewy had several colors in that length and at the best price. When you live in a rural area like I do with the nearest big box stores 50 miles away, Chewy is my choice for all my pet supplies. Delivery is always in two days.

  • Perfect Purchase!

    By on

    We have had dogs continuously for the past 42 years. Up until recently, we have always had large dogs like labs and great pyrenees where we used sturdy, short leashes. Our new pup, a small terrier mix weighing about 11 pounds, likes to run and explore when we go for a walk. We bought the 26' cord leash by Flexio, size small, and it has been the perfect purchase to help Izzy burn some energy, explore and let my wife and I control her walk/play without having to expend the same level of energy as the dog. We highly recommend this leash
