Fantastic product. Excellent quality. If you're looking for the best slip leash on the market, this one is for you. The price is a touch on the high side and shipping was a tad slow, but overwhellming all of that was a leash like you can get nowhere else. Just buy it - you won't be disappointed.
Bubble + Spike's simple slip lead is head and shoulders above the brands that use polypropylene rope and leather snaps. First, the B+S slip lead stays where it should--high on the neck right behind the ears (the dog's power steering). The hardware keeps everything in place in a way that's comfortable for my dog, leaving enough action if I need to use leash pressure without sliding down her neck the way other slip leads with inferior snaps do. Second, it's stiffer, which admittedly took a few walks to get used to after using the polypropylene versions. I've grown to appreciate the feel of the stiffer rope because it allows me to issue miniscule pressure with very small finger movements or hand rotations that can get my recently-rescued Sheppit's attention back if her engagement wanders or gently guide her into a heel. I "feel" her more through the leash even when it's loose. I like how B+S knots the handle end of the leash which I've kept as is, but having the flexibility to change that if I want to is a nice option. To conclude, this slip lead has been a great tool to help me set Lenora up for success by walking nicely and nipping reactivity on a leash in the bud. At two years old, she was a rural stray who had no obedience training and was a disengaged puller the day I rescued her. This slip lead has been a big part of her training routine and helped me teach her to walk nicely and work with me. Definitely worth the price premium IMO.
My dog looks super fly when I use his new lead…and the material, the weight, all perfect!
Shipping was quick. Packaging was well done and beautifully presented.and bonus tennis ball! Lead is very nicely made. Great color. We are still waiting on our adopted dog to arrive. Hopefully the slip lead works as nicely as it looks.
Thank you for your purchase Judy and we hope that the leash works well for your new family member!
Excellent. Both My dog Shaliyah and I found walking with this quality lead a pleasant experience. Finally a lead that keeps the loop at the proper position for training a dog. She also is enjoying the ball you sent. Thanks and stay safe
