I fell in love with this jazzy, black and silver metallic, leopard pattern leash while shopping in a local pet store but was disappointed that the store did not offer matching collars that would fit my dog, Wandrdog. Luckily Amazon offers a large assortment of products by the manufacturer Lupine and I was able (with some hunting) to find the perfect pattern ("Wild Thing") in the styles and sizes Wandrdog needed.
This lead is extremely well made from tightly woven, jacquard nylon webbing. Unlike other manufacturers, Lupine's designs are woven into the webbing and not printed or sewn on top. The metal fitting that attaches to the collar is a welded, zinc-plated reverse-gate, swivel clip that is very strong and secure. (Another reviewer has commented that the clip is small and difficult to use. This is not the case with my leash; the clip is quite large and sturdy and easy to use because you push against it to open and close the latch.) The handle is padded and comfortable to hold.
Lupine manufactures its products in Conway, New Hampshire and offers a life time guarantee.....even if chewed. This guarantee is reassuring as Wandrdog's former leash has been well gnawed and patched twice.
