Answer by ChewyJul 31, 2017
This is recommended for dogs weighing 50 to 250 pounds.

Is it waterproof/stain resistant? I’d love to purchase the white leash, but I’m afraid it is going to get dirty in 5 minutes...
Answer by ChewySep 20, 2018
This lead is waterproof.

I see that this lead is waterproof but how would you suggest I clean it? As a volunteer for our local humane society, I walk lots of dogs - some of whom are recovering from serious illnesses.
Answer by ChewyOct 31, 2018
This lead is machine washable, air dry only.

Intermediate walking tool, excellent results

We adopted an all-muscle, no previous training, 72 lb male Labrador who could and did haul me all over the place with no boundaries including pulling me down on my face and dragging me. Yup. Unacceptable. We tried the pinch collar, but it didn't fit such that it stays up at his ear level and slides down to the muscular area of his neck that has no correction effect. We took a link out but then it was too tight. So, we tried this slip lead, and the stopper made it such that we could keep the loop up by his ears and the correction was effective. This helped some, but for a year-old puppy that has everything to learn it was a little more advanced than he was. Our new trainer sold us a halter style (like Gental Leader) because he's VERY new to the heeling concept and this extra direction is necessary for now. HOWEVER, as he progresses on that, I have every expectation that he'll be GRADUATING to this marvelous slip lead. I really like it. It's well made and slides easily for quick jerk corrections and release. Anyone looking for a nice "loose leash" experience with intermediate correction this is it.

Measure twice...

This 4 ft leash is a beautiful color and well-made. The downside is that it's a bit on the short side. I thought 4 feet was measured from the handle to where the collar began. Not true. It is the entirety of the rope material. As such, this makes an excellent lead for going to the vet's office where closer control is optimum. For walking, longer would be more comfortable for my 50 lb Carolina Dog mix. I will keep this leash for vet visits but will be ordering the 6ft lead for a better walking experience.

No More Harness

Had this recommended by our trainer. Our staffy no longer pulls on walks. We slipped it on her for all day use, even when not walking, so she could get used to it. She did make a few choking coughs at first but she quickly learned the more she tugged the more it would bother her and she stopped. There is a lot of give within the fabric so please don’t think of this as like a choke chain. We love it way more than our old harness because our staffy is no longer sled dogging us on our walks.

Nice leash!

Made of the perfect materials for easy handling. This is a shorter walking style that I have used for years but couldn't seem to find a good replacement for my old one. I folds nicely for a pocket or cubby in the car.

Seems well build, should last a long time.

I foster dogs and most require double leashing while transporting, with one being this style. That is the only time I will likely use it, but it seems well made and is definitely up to the task. It's thick enough that I doubt a determined dog could chew through it in a car ride.

Leash works well

I recently purchased the Mendota large 4’ slip lead leash. It works very well, easy to slip on and off. The shorter length is great for training. High quality. Very pleased.

Handiest leash

Love the ease of use. I bought it specifically to leash kennel dogs and take them outside to their exercise yard. It's adjustable for ease on, then to tighten for walking then to ease off when back in the kennel. I haven't washed it yet, but I'm thinking that put into a lingerie bag it will do well in the washing machine.

used it for the first time and the stopper broke

After a week of getting my boy acquainted with it used it for the first time just now for a walk. It worked perfectly and the pulling has stopped a lot. When I unleashed him now, the stopper which is a leather thing broke off.

A leash that will stay high on my dog's neck.

Best I have found so far. Still working with it and my Beagle mix. Its very hard to keep her nose off the ground since she is a tracker/hunter. It is soft but strong and I'll keep training!
