My dog, Tico, and I use the Amazing Versatile Leash every morning. It’s the only way that we can run together on the busy sidewalks of Washington, DC. On your leash, he’s much more likely to run alongside me than with a regular leash, and I feel more in tune with his movements. Plus, when he does bolt ahead for a squirrel or bird, the versatile leash allows me to use my body for leverage, if necessary. We also appreciate that the leash is made from recycled rope. It is sometimes difficult to find dog products that are environmentally sound. Thank you for making a good recycled product.
