PLEASE READ, DON'T RISK LOSING DOG(S)
on September 26, 2014
I love Amazon and always go by reviews so I figured this would be a great idea for my two dogs. My dogs weigh 120 pounds at the most together. Last weighed one who's now 5 months old was a little over 40 pounds and my other that's a year old was 65 pounds. This is rated for 500 pounds, hardly. This leash worked for one walk and not what I would recommend if you have strong dogs. Thankfully I'm a "big and strong" Man because my fiancee wouldn't have been able to walk them for long on this leash. This leash does a rather good job of not tangling but it still did tangle up a little bit, somehow. It started to wrap together with the two leashes off of the handle/leash but I was able to see it and unwind it.
So, the second day I tried to use it, I walked out my front door and was literally locking the door. The handle/leash part broke off of the metal link that has the two for the dogs. The dogs were connected together still but they ran into the street and thankfully the car coming was going slow enough to stop in time or I would possibly be mourning the loss of one or both dogs. I would not recommend this for strong dogs, but for toy size dogs it probably does the job.
My year old dog is half English Pointer and half pit bull, my 5 month old is a Sheprador (half Labrador, half German shepherd). My dogs are like my kids, as I'm sure they are many if not all of yours. I am posting this honest review because I don't want anybody to possibly lose a dog or two. The delivery was on time and the price is cheap but this leash for whatever reason was only good for one use for me. Maybe I had a defected leash but I don't want to find out neither. My dogs being alive is more important to me than the $15 or whatever money I spent for this. I'm not somebody that makes it a habit to leave bad reviews and have been using Amazon prime for years.
