Nancy T on Mar 13, 2017
I like the rugged look of the Collier and the fact that the name badge is located where it won't be dragging when they play.

Priya L on Dec 29, 2016
I absolutely love these leashes. They are well made, easy on the hands and they hold up over time. I have them in different colors and use them for my two dogs and for the foster dogs I've had. I also like to keep a slip lead in my car for emergencies or if I come across a stray dog. I have had many different brands of leashes and this is the best ever!!
Darlene M on Dec 19, 2016
I'm a sailor. This leash feels like a mainsheet in my hand. That's a good thing.
Gwen A on Dec 12, 2016
Purchased one last year and it is the best leash i have ever owned
Jacqueline O on Dec 6, 2016
I have the blue one and I loved it so much. It is the best leash I have ever had. I wanted to get him a collar that was personalized so he didn't jingle while he walked so I wanted to get him a different color and a leash to match.
Heather M on Nov 25, 2016
Very nice comfortable and strong leash.
Mary Ann G on Nov 21, 2016
They're simply the best leash around - very gentle on your hand if your dog pulls even a little bit. 1000 times better than a flat leash!
Caitlin B on Nov 17, 2016
Have read a lot about these being good training tools.
Amanda C on Oct 15, 2016
Very practical and because the leash is round & soft it does not cut your fingers!
Véronique M on Sep 24, 2016
The Mendota braided leashes are comfortable for both pet and owner with a great grip. These leashes have been my favorite so far.
Phuong K on Sep 21, 2016
They are the BEST Leashes but hard to find locally in our stores......
SARAH W on Sep 8, 2016
I chose this product based on superior material quality and updated color.
GAIL M on Sep 3, 2016
I raise dark Goldens and I like the quality of the Mendota leashes and have bought them for my past litters as I supply them to the puppy owners.
Sally B on Aug 29, 2016

June J on Aug 12, 2016
I liked the look. If I like it I'll purchase more for my other dogs.
Mary L on Jul 27, 2016

Janice B on May 22, 2016

Aurora P on Apr 8, 2016

Very unusual and "eye catching"!

My dog chewed up my other leash.
Julie J on May 30, 2018
Measuring leash - do you include the "hand" loop in the length? Thanks!
A shopper on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hand loop is included in the entire length of the leash. Example: If it is a 6 ft leash, the handle is included in that length.
Can you choose what color hardware is on the leash or does it vary by the braid color?
Taylor H on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It varies by braid color. The solid colors are in brass hardware, most of the patterns have nickel and the black ice is black hardware. It shows the hardware in the photos and the swatch images.
My new rescue has chewed through 2 nylon leashes in 2 walks! I am thinking a braided (and polypropelene) might do the trick. Do you know how 'chew proof' your leash is??
R S on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not have any products that are "chew proof".
I prefer a shorter leash. Is the braided leash short?
Diane E on Sep 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This leash is available in 4 ft and 6 ft lengths, the 4 ft is generally the average "short" length. If you want something shorter, we can also do custom orders for these leashes with a 20% upcharge. Contact customer service - [email protected] or 800-720-8247 if you'd like to do that.
Does the sand color from the Mendota Rolled Braided dog collar match the tan color of the Mendota Braided Snap leash?
Lauren R on Sep 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: . Our Tan is a “Jute” tone. Sand is more a light yellowish/pinkish Tan color. The Sand rolled collar is the complimentary color to go with our Mocha Leads. Chuck B. Staff

Better materials and craftsmanship than the cheaper brands....I would not buy the less expense ones again.

I like the material is pliable and doesn't hurt my hands when dealing with a puller.
none....these are the best you can buy
