I use all different kinds of slip and this is pretty but I do find it a little thick for my little hands, particularly when holding multiple leashes. The leather stopper is secure, but very hard to move to secure the leash so not as smooth as some. It makes an OK figure 8 for the nose loop on a larger dog, but not anything under 24lb as it's too thick. So it's pretty, and OK, but not the GOAT.
My Airedale sometimes has difficulty with recall especially after participating in a FasCat event. This loop leash is wonderful for getting a hold of her and off the course without much difficulty.
Heavy duty and well made. I will be using soon when my fur baby starts training.
This is a very nice-looking slip lead. And, is the perfect length. I think it might work for medium-sized dogs. But, the leather piece does not hold the slip lead in place when I use it with my 92 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback. It ends up becoming loose around her neck all the time and won’t stay behind her ears where it should for training purposes. Believe it or not, a cheap thin very basic black slip lead a friend loaned me to try does a much better job. So, I’ll be donating this one to our local rescue.
Love the length and the softness yet strength of the rope. It stays snug on the neck too. I wish they made one a little longer but not quite as long as the next size up
I love Mendota products! I have been using them for many years and they never let me down. They look good, are well made and are easy on the hands. This slip lead won't disappoint!
As a shelter employee who handles a variety of dogs everyday, this is my absolute go too! It's soft on my hands but durable, the stopper is easy to move when needed but doesn't slip when the dog drags the leash. My one draw back is that it doesn't hold and open "O" shape well due to the rope braiding, so it takes a bit of skill if you're trying to "lasso" over a dog's head, but this is an uncommon circumstance for most people. Purchasing a replacement as my last went home with a spicy shelter dog.
I definitely recommend a harness to avoid choking your doggo with long walks and adventures, but sweet bernedoodle Daisy has learned to "heel" so this is perfect for quick early morning or late not potty breaks (: also posting a review as support of the GREAT customer service I always get with Chewy - big fan (:
It worked very well for the first week, but then it started tearing apart. I would recommend to medium dogs but maybe not large ones as they are stronger.
Soft, quality material. Slip function works as designed. Seems durable, but time will tell. Properly used, this is a great product that's made dog training sessions much easier.
