I just had to have it because of the vivid color ! This leash is light and flexible. So, it’s gentle to my lovely dog, Mickey when going for a walk ! Also easy for me to handle, wind and extend. And I love the texture of this, smooth and soft ! It makes me feel safe that this leash is made of climbing rope, not easy to cut. Looks classy, but the price is reasonable ! I can recommend both lovely dogs and their pawrents as the BEST gear !!
