5.0 out of 5 stars Great leash - used for walking hyper dogs at a shelter, February 12, 2016
This is a great leash that is very high quality and very sturdy. I volunteer at an animal shelter and I use this leash as it is more comfortable than the thin leashes that are provided at the shelter. It is really comfortable to hold in my hand and very easy to use. I have walked many large dogs using this leash, between 40-80 lbs. Some of these dogs are very hyper and some have never walked on a leash before and pull like crazy. They were all manageable on this leash; just a few strong tugs and a stern "no!" will get those crazy dogs in line. It is also pretty simple to get this leash on, even if a dog is jumping around or scared of leashes. The leash itself is of very high quality. I personally think that most dogs should be walked using this type of slip lead as it makes them much easier to control but does not hurt them at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars my dog LOVES this leash (and so do I), October 20, 2017
I had been alternately using a gentle leader and a comfort harness for my 53-lb lab mix who tends to pull at times. She HATED getting either device on and it was miserable to get ready to go for a walk. I tried changing to a choke chain but the metal chain slipped down the fur on her neck and got tangled in her collar - just too annoying. But THIS!!!! OMG I LOVE this leash and so does Hanna!!! SOOOO simple to put on and I've NEVER had it come off accidentally! Hanna actually comes up to me and presents her face to get her new leash on for walks!! I can't say enough about this slip lead!!! It's comfortable in the hand as well. And because of the fabric it doesn't slide down her fur and get tangled in her regular collar either. It stays put and does its job. When she pulls all I need is a quick correction and she calms down. And it comes in so MANY fun colors! Kind of pricey, but I'm a big fan regardless. Can't wait to get another!

5.0 out of 5 stars I found the best way to keep it up, December 10, 2017
Stops the hardest pulling dog with minimal effort. I found the best way to keep it up, and also makes it more effective, is to do a figure 8 around the dog's face (around the muzzle, criss-cross under the jaw and around the back of the head). As they pull, it tightens around their head, which they obviously don't like so they stop pulling. The slip then allows it to slack enough to be comfortable when the pulling stops. If you just use it around the neck, it almost never stays up, and just turns into a choker which doesn't always work.
