I bought the 10m and 20m for different training purposes with my GSD. They've never let me down. I also recommend these to training clients after I've shown them how to use correctly (yes there is a correct way to use a long line) and they've all been happy with them too!
It meant to be a rope to train your puppy/dog. Unfortunately it too dengerous! Both my male puppies have hunted themselves with this rope. They ran and the rope when went between their legs, ripped off the sling on their testicles. Good I realized it fast and stopped using it immediately. I will never use it again unless the dogs will be fully trained but then I will probably not really need it once I train them to come to me when called.
Bad material, waste of money even I was happy to see it
I purchased the 20m one back in March to try to teach re-call to my new rescue sighthound. The lead is ok in that it gives more freedom than a normal lead but I found that it absorbs water very easily. So in the wet weather you start your walk with a nice dry lead and by the end you have a very heavy wet lead to hold - rather unpleasant! I found it did snag somewhat when dry but even more so when wet. I also found my sighthound would get tangled up in it and gave himself a few rope burns!
My dog is a rescue dog, that is aggressive to other dogs NOT to people (so kind + gentle) but loves to be able to walk faster than me, a normal lead is bit to short when walking in a field, so tried this lead, what a pleasure to use, can control , or allow a bit of freedom.
I use this for my terrier who is not the best to recall when onto something good! It allows freedom for him and peace of mind for me. It rinses really well - and now I have 2 terriers I put one on each end and just hold the middle! Great product!
I bought both the 10m and 20m a couple of years ago. They get very frequent use and are still in excellent condition, no signs of wear and when they're dirty I just dunk them in a bucket of water.
I use them for teaching recall, limiting the distance they can swim in open water and tie them to cork stakes when I go camping.
1 extra tip, don't grab hold of the rope if you need to stop your dog, just stand on it or lose your skin to rope burn!
I have adopted pitbull. Brought this lead to learn her recall. Lead break after two walks. This is dengerous using this lead when dog is master of running away. Lead should be strong enough to keep dog safe. Very, very poor quality.
I purchased this as my garden is not secure and my pup SHOULD have been named Houdini! This lead has allowed me to tether the pup with no stress and he has plenty of space to roam. A much needed product and fits my need perfectly. Long slim lead with loop handle, doesn't seem to snag either.
My young terrier/whippet cross is very very fast and has no sense. She is easily distracted and once focussed nothing will bring her back. I bought the 20M lead which gives her an opportunity to run about and chase her ball in safety and gives me peace of mind and control. We also use the lead to practice recall which is really improving. I cannot praise this highly enough. She can run off her energy and I can relax knowing she cannot go futher than the end of the rope.
This lead is great for training a puppy. I took my gsp on the beach to do some whistle training with him and attached him to this lead he began chewing the lead which stayed in the same shape as it was when I had got it. Highly recommend it for some one who wishes to train a dog for recall.
