The collar that's part of this set is nice... it seems very sturdy, and fits well. The leash, however, will not work (IMO) if your dog is on the small side. To be fair, it's a good length, very nice to handle, and also seems like it will hold up well... BUT the metal clasp is very large and HEAVY. It is far too weighty for me to use on my 17 lb. dog. I definitely wouldn't be comfortable with her having that much weight around her neck on a walk. I kept the collar, but the leash unfortunately had to go back.
