Hmm what can we say about these?! Retractable leashes have been around for many years and have sky rocketed everywhere! However the durability and locking mechanism is concerning. By using retractable leashes, dogs can get further away from the owner, causing to lose control of their dog. If a dog sees a squirrel or a rabbit, off goes the dog!! The leash can easily be pulled from your hand and prompting owner to run after their pet and the chase game begins! Therefore, we recommend a leather or rope-type leash that would best suit your pet.
