Great quality and perfect for training large dog breeds or taking walks in highly trafficked areas. For that price, definite steal.

Very close quarters for casual walks
I trained my dog Potato on a short leash to try to get her used to the idea of always being close to me so that when she was on a longer leash she wouldn't be pulling like a monster. I love the length of the leash I trained her with (it is probably 4 or 5 inches longer), but the clasp was awful and always coming undone. The clasp on this one is perfect, but the leash is probably best used for walking where there is a lot of traffic or new sounds and the dog needs to be much closer for safety. I didn't realize just how short it was when I purchased it; it's a little too short to just be a casual walking leash. This leash feels very sturdy, and the leather accents make it look nice too. Overall it's a great leash for the price I paid, and it's also the only bright orange short leash of good quality I could find to match all of Potato's other accessories. I'm happy with the purchase and would purchase another if I was ever in the market for a short leash.
