I purchased this leash for my dog. It's great quality. It's durable and strong, strong enough to hold my large breed puppy. It's smooth so it doesn't scratch your hands while you're holding back an anxious or excited dog. It's a great length and was perfect for our road trips with our pups. The metal clasp is great quality and easy to use. I anticipate we will use this leash for a long time. It's perfect. Now I just need to get another for my other dog.
