At first I was not super in love with this leash. I had gotten the 1/4 rope for my 14lb dog not realizing how small of a thickness this leash would be. This was no fault of the business, just my own! I should have known that I would prefer a thicker rope to hold in my hand. After using it awhile though I can’t help but love the leash! It’s so lightweight and can even be washed. It’s definitely survived what my dog has put it through. I love supporting small business that put the time in to their products! I will for sure be a repeat customer and recommend their leashes to all my dog loving friends!
