I like the leash overall. It's best to use it with a harness as the latch is kinda big/heavy, but my large dogs do okay with it attached to the collar/gentle leaders. The handles are nice, and I like the extra control I have with the double handle near trafficked areas. If you try to grab the leash anywhere other than the handles, it's uncomfortable. The leash itself is somewhat stiff. It seems sturdy and I like the thickness and length. The poop bag dispenser is nice, but the hook is challenging to get on or off. Overall not bad, but not as perfect as it could be.
We got this leash for our very rambunctious Aussie. The "traffic" handle is very helpful when we need extra control of our dog. Our walk includes a 100 yd walk along a busy roadway, and the traffic leash is perfect. We actually have 2 of these leashes and it works well with our border collie mix as well. An excellent leash and the poop bag dispenser is a plus.
I do like the traffic handle on this but as another reviewer said if you grab it just anywhere it’s slippery . You have to have hold of the handle at all Times. Also my puppy chews it and rips it extremely easy so I have to keep buying it. But at this price that’s better than paying a bunch for a more expensive one.
So glad I got this leash! The second handle is great for heel training. It also comes in handy if my overly excited dog tries lunging towards squirrels and bunnies. He's a strong boy at 65 lbs but I have great control with this leash. The handles are soft and padded so they don't hurt my hands. The poop bag dispenser works great with bags I already had. Very pleased.
Bought 2 of these leashes, one for each dog as I walk 2 dogs at a time. So far they are very helpful in controlling both dogs at the same time. The short handle is great when I need to keep dogs close. Love them so far. I did take the poop bag holders off because they got in the way with 2 dogs but they are a good idea.
I have an90 lb. American bull dog and she is the sweetest girl, but when she sees another dog she goes crazy. I hired a professional trainer and she is doing very well, but still gets very excited when she sees another dog and I couldn't keep control of her. So I decided to try this leash so I could have better control and it definitely has been helpful. I would highly recommend this leash for any dog walker. you are able to have more control of the dog and keep them on a shorter leash when need be
We have 2 dogs who are leash walked 4 times per day, each. We have a German Shepherd Dog, 2 Boston Terriers and a hound mix. The 2 large dogs are only about a year old and they require a strong leash as they still act like puppies. This leash has been instrumental in our training for them. We use this leash plus a front-snap harness at the recommendation of a trainer we hired to come to our home and help us stop the madness of them pulling while walking on leash. I have ordered several of these so I always have a spare in the car and we don't have to spend time looking for a leash. The second handle close to the collar snap is great for working on the "heel" command and the Frisco poop bags are a nice bonus. We started ordering those in bulk as the refills fit in this holder attached to the leash. Overall, I have recommended this leash to all my friends and family and they also love it. I've also washed the leashes several times and they've held up perfectly!
The padding on the leash handles feels really nice and the nice thick fabric with double stitching makes the leash very sturdy and strong. Unfortunately, what I did not know at the time that I ordered the leashes was that they are made to be used with harnesses only (per the tags attached to the leashes). The padding and thick fabric do make the leash too heavy to attach to the collars of my 40lb dogs so I understand why it's for use with harnesses only. I wanted leashes to use to my dogs' collars so I am returning these. Very bummed to return these because they are great leashes - just not what I need.
I love the two options on handles. I love how comfortable it is on my hands too! Other leashes either feel like they will cut through my hands or slip out of my hands! This is a must-have to make your dog walks more comfortable. For you and your pet.
This a quality leash at a great price. I love the traffic control handle and the ring to hook the poop bag dispenser is great. I wish it had reflectors on both sides of the leash, not just one side, but I ordered my second leash in bright red for better visibility when walking in the evenings.
