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.
Bought for my grooming salon. Snapped while walking my own dog outside to potty. (She doesn't even pull) Luckily my dogs are trainers. If this had been an clients dog this could have been tragic. Honestly I feel like these should be pulled from sale as they are unsafe and do not preform at all-time.
I bought these for a dog first aid kit. They're indeed slip leads, but they're very very narrow (about 1 cm wide). These would be suitable for a dog like a yorkie or MAYBE a beagle, but I have golden retrievers. If a large dog ever pulled on one of these, it would either choke them or break the lead. I re-read the product description to make sure I didn't just misread the size of these, but it didn't list one. They would work well for small dogs, but the listing should specify how large they are. There's also nothing in the pictures to judge how narrow these are.
These are little dog leads. I wouldn't walk an aggressive dog with one. I am not sure it would even contain a runaway dog rescue. They are lower quality than the ones that my vet uses but the same style. Someone said that the ring doesn't glide smoothly, I agree with that. Let me tell you what these are good for: Leading a dog. I have a blind dog who has bad hearing. Collars are okay, but not as sensitive. My dog needed a guide type leash. I can walk her with these and she can tell what direction and where to go because it adjusts tightness. With this, you would never know my dog can't see if you saw me walking her. I also keep in the house because she gets confused sometimes or I want her to go somewhere and she is too big to always carry. So these are great for my blind dog. I also use them to lead her inside after she's been out in the backyard. Very gentle and handy. The vet ones are better quality but for the price and my use these were fine.
These are super teeny tiny. I would only recommend for a very very very small puppy... maybe not even a puppy... more for walking a gerbal. I have a dachshund puppy and this was way too small. I braided all of them Together to create a decent sided leash.
The rings are bigger than the straps so if the dog stops to sniff and you don't pull the leash tight, s/he can walk right out of it. I have a small dog and thought the small size would be nice for her. It is until she walks out of it and could take off (she's a good escape artist leashed or not). Thankfully I discovered this in our yard and she stayed with me.
I am a dog trainer and give these leashes to my clients to help train leash walking. They are good leashes. Just keep in mind they are not for very large dogs. I did have a 150lb Newfoundland break one.
