great leash - but better customer service :)

This leash is brilliant - its easy to clip on and off - I have a Ruffwear harness and the clipping on and off the harness is great. The lead is long enough to wrap around your waist when walking, and also gives extra length when not clipped around the waist. The customer service was outstanding - not long after I placed my order I was sent a personal email to say the one I chose was not available and was given options of what was available. The order was dispatched really quickly after that. This lead has been great and since my dog has had a leg op (did not know that this was going to happen when I bought the leash) it has been really helpful in getting her back into short walks.

Worth the money

I have two large greyhounds that have only recently retired from racing and haven’t quite learnt their manners while walking on a leash yet. The padded handle is amazing while they are still pulling. The swivel clip and extra traffic handle give you so much more control than a conventional leash. Definitely recommend!!!

A comfortable and quality running or walking lead

I have used many leads for running with my dogs and this one is excellent. It’s another quality Ruff Wear product that will be my go to running lead.

Love mine - bought this one as a gift

The waist lead is wonderful hands free dog walking. I like mine so much that I got this one as a gift for my mum.

The best leash

We've tried so many brands of leashes and we came back to ruffwear. It's nice on the hands when the dog pulls (I had leashes cutting my hand because the edges were not soft at all). We don't even use it around the waist, it has a great length enough to give the dog freedom to explore, but it's light so you can wrap around your hands for a shorter lead. And the "traffic handle" is the best thing in the universe. I know it's not cheap but it's worth every penny!
