The leash is made from an extremely heavy, stiff, slick woven rope. I find it uncomfortable to handle, and my dog appears to hate it as well. Wow...a lot of money down the drain.
The lead is very sturdy, well constructed, good looking lead. My Yoda seems to enjoy it also, puts his head right into the loop with no hesitation.
I've had multiple slip leads in the past and I've had issues with every single one. Having a strong dog that loves to pull, it was almost impossible to keep the lock in place. I was even skeptical of this brand when I initially ordered. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the durability of not only the lock, but the material of the leash as well. Everything was so well put together and works exactly as it should. Wish I found Bubble and Spike earlier.
The black and white pattern is so cute. I like that it's very neutral...that way I can switch between this one and the bright blue one that I already have.
