Description

You call the shots with the ThunderLeash Dial-A-Distance Safe Retractable Dog Leash. It’s everything you want in a retractable leash, plus one fantastic safety bonus. The unique “dial a distance” feature allows you to choose an automatic stop, so your dog stays as close—or far—as you want. It takes just seconds to adjust your distance, and the manual thumb break is always there should you need to retract earlier than planned. The ergonomic handle offers a comfortable grip for long walks, with a lightweight design that ensures your hand never gets tired.

Key Benefits
  • Retractable leash allows you to choose an automatic stop between 0 to 15 feet.
  • Autobrake reliably stops at the length you choose, with a manual thumb break if you need to stop before.
  • Push in the dial and turn to select the length. Smooth and quiet operation is great for timid dogs while keeping them safe.
  • Lightweight and compact design features an ergonomic rubber grip to avoid hand fatigue.
  • Durable enough to hold 275 pounds of tensile force and dogs up to 50 pounds.
Precautions

ThunderLeash is not for use with dogs weighing over 50 lbs.

FAQ

What Makes Dial-A-Distance Better? Why Is It Better Than The Manual Thumb Brake?

D-A-D offers all the features of a regular retractable with one key difference. Unlike other retractables, you can set the maximum retractable length anywhere from 0 to 15 feet. Within the length you choose it retracts and extends like a regular retractable. And you still can use the thumb brake when needed. But whenever your dog extends to the max you set, D-A-D autobrakes! D-A-D will always keep your dog within a safe range, even during those inevitable distractions on a walk. It’s like having 15 different retractables in one unit!

Aren’t Retractable Leashes Dangerous?

Retractable leashes are not for everyone, but when used properly and safely, they can make walks more enjoyable for all involved…dogs and humans. Dial-A-Distance is the safest retractable leash ever made!

Aren’t Retractable Leashes Bad For The Dog Because They Put Constant Pulling Pressure On The Throat Of The Dog?

The retractable spring in Dial-A-Distance only maintains very light tension in the leash. Most dogs barely notice it. But if you have a dog with a sensitive neck or are otherwise concerned, we absolutely support the use of a harness with any leash, whether retractable or fixed-length. All of the benefits of a Dial-A-Distance work just as well with a harness!

Do Retractable Leashes Encourage Pulling By Applying Pressure On The Dog’s Neck? The retractable spring in Dial-A-Distance only maintains very light tension in the leash, and doesn’t trigger a “pull response” from the vast majority of dogs. But if you are struggling with a “puller”, we absolutely support the use of a harness with a chest D-ring with any leash, whether retractable or fixed-length. All of the benefits of a Dial-A-Distance work just as well with a harness! For PULLERS we have developed the ThunderLeash NO PULL extension that can be easily added to the D-A-D.

What Sized Dogs Is Dial-A-Distance For? What Sizes Will Be Available?

We currently offer our Medium/Large Dial-A-Distance for dogs up to 55 lbs. You can use it for very small dogs, but it might feel a little bulky for dogs under 10 lbs. We will be developing a size Small in the near future.

How Do You Adjust The Maximum Length Of Dial-A-Distance?

So easy! Simply press in the Adjustment Dial and turn to your desired length, from 0 to 15 feet. It takes just a couple of seconds. Adjustments can be made in approximately 1 foot increments.

Can You Still Manually Brake The Leash?

Absolutely! For example, if you set the maximum length to 10 feet, you can still use the manual thumb break to stop extending at less than 10 ft. But at 10 feet, the autobrake will kick in

Is It Strong? How Much Pull Force Can Dial-A-Distance Hold?

The Medium/Large D-A-D can withstand over 275 lbs of pull-force!

    The leash is good, strong, I like the ability to decide how many feet your dog can have it extended to. However, be sure to use the handle and not the leash part. I made the mistake of grabbing the leash part with my second hand when a loose dog came after my dog and ended up cutting into my finger pretty bad. I have to say the Customer Service at Chewy.com is the best ever!!!

  • Just an OK leash

    By on

    I’ve just started on retractable leads for my first dog and I’ve bought a couple to try to decide which one I like best, I do like this one for being able to choose the distance on the lead, however that’s pretty much the only difference in this and other retractables, I even contemplated on returning it but will give it a few more tries.?
