To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This leash is very sturdy, no signs of wear after a number of months of frequent use with my lab/great dane X. Very pleased and would buy again. I always buy leashes that, like this one, are round and not flat, because if your dog suddenly pulls, these are much easier on the hands - I used to get a lot of 'rope burn' on my hands. This is an excellent example of just such a good quality leash. As an aside, strangers have stopped me and asked if the pattern on my leash is supposed to look like a snake, I hadn't noticed before but it kind of does!
