Jonathan says...This is so much better than a fixed lead for walking the dog. She can wander around to sniff out spots on the nature strip while I walk close by on the footpath. She can speed up or slow down without being accidentally jerked by a fixed lead and without me having to match her pace (especially when she goes up/down stairs).
It has made walking so much more relaxing for us yet so much more fun and comfortable for her at the same time!
Very well designed product with a super smooth retracting action that just works. Super easy to lock it to a fixed length when walking near a busy road.
Handle is also handy for hanging the poop bags off it, making walking a one-handed affair without ridiculously bulging pockets :)
