this dog leash looks great. wanna get one for my friend's golden retriever as a gift. he is 14 years old and about 45 lbs. where can i buy it??
Oh, I agree with you, retractable leashes may have many disadvantages.I don't like retractable leashes. They are not as comfortable to hold as a normal leash and hurt my hand. They are bulky too. And, this is more user error than the leash itself but many people that use them have no control over their dogs. Also walking multiple dogs would be a nightmare with those things.
Thank you, user errors do happen frequently of retractable leashes. I would take care of this when use it.As far as retractable leashes go, it looks quite nice. Pobably the nicest one I have seen. But I don't use retractable leashes and probably never will. I don't like how they accustom the dog to always having pressure on the lead. I have worked for loose leash walking and I fear that a retractable would undo that.
It looks like a nice find though. Use safely.
For me it doesn't matter how soft the handle it. I have a couple health problems and it causes my hands to go numb and can also cramp when I'm holding something. A leash is better, I can just loop it around my wrist, no problems.Oh, I agree with you, retractable leashes may have many disadvantages.
I just got this for a try, but it absolutely change my thought about retractable leashes. This one is comfortable to hold. As for user error, I haven't met yet. And I only have one dog, so I won't walk multiple dogs.
Yeah, i have heard some news about injury caused by retractable leashes, it really shocked me. But retractable leashes is just a tool, and the most important part is the user. The lock mode in this leash works very well, and i will take care of this when walk my dog.The problems with retractable leashes have nothing to do with how comfortable or uncomfortable the handles are. The problems are that it generally when people get it they're getting it instead of learning loose leash walking because their dog pulls, so it allows the dog to go wherever he wants and not care about his handler. That means the dog can go up on people's lawns, run up to strange dogs or people they could injure or be injured by, and into the street where they can be killed. Not to mention the long leash, when extended can wrap around people's legs and trip them, as well as cut into their skin. One of the few scars on my girlfriend's body are scars on her legs from someone else's retractable leash from their dog that got wrapped around her. I just can't see anything that great about a dog product that is responsible for so many human and canine injuries and even deaths.
I believe this leash works well with you and that's ok but in my experience I (and most dog people I know) hate retractable leashes for multiple reasons and none of them will change my mind!
