This is seriously (SERIOUSLY) the best lead I have ever had the pleasure of using. I have shown, worked with, and walked dogs for most of my life, and when I tell you I have used every lead out there… not even kidding. After getting a severe rope burn from a popular flat lead I decided enough was enough and I went on the hunt for a classic round slip lead that would never let me down. I found it! It’s yours! If you are on the fence about this lead… just get it. The thickness is perfection and the fact that I can adjust it to not slip down on my wild GSD’s neck is priceless. Thank you so much for making this beautiful masterpiece!
