We bought our first leash eight years ago while vacationing at the beach. It has been the only leash our dog, Dallas, has ever had. It’s been back to the beach each year enduring the salt and sand. We can’t say enough about the quality of this product. Just recently one of the clips wore out, so we tested the forever warranty. It is for real. We sent our old leash back and in no time we received a brand new one. We appreciate this company and it’s loyalty to customers. This company has a quality product and great attitude. I’m so glad we convinced our daughter and others to purchase this style of leash from Mountain Dog.
