The Best Materials for the Best Dogs
It’s common knowledge that here at dogIDs, we love dogs. That’s why our products are constructed to be as good as they can possibly get. This dog lead is constructed from high quality synthetic material that is waterproof and odor resistant, so you’ll never have to worry about your pooch dragging it through the mud or anything else. Just rinse it off if it ever gets dirty! Even better, it will always feel soft in your hand and the nickel plated hardware looks great.
I purchased this lead as well as the Mendota DuraSoft Waterproof Collar with the O-Ring/Center Safety Ring. I kept the collar, but returned the lead. I must add that the customer service I received was wonderful!
I returned this lead because although it is high quality craftsmanship and the material is wonderful, the hardware was FAR too heavy in my opinion.
The 1 inch width was rather bulky to me as well-- the material, itself, is comfortable and soft/flexible, but the width was particularly difficult for me (as a woman with smaller hands) to wrap around my hand or just bunch together when I wanted to shorten the distance allowed for my dog.
But the primary issue for me was the weight of the hardware. It is a beautiful design, but there are several rivets and the large ring on the loop just adds to the weight of a very large swivel bolt snap. Don't drop it on your toe!
If I had a large, heavy dog, then this lead would make sense, but for my medium furry boy at 40 lbs and smaller than average neck it was just too much.
Personally, I would not recommend this lead for small to medium dogs, and even some thinner large dogs. Perhaps Mendota could provide more size options. I would very interested then.
