I won this leash in your weekly giveaway contest and wanted to thank the folks at Leerburg for offering such high quality products for prizes. What a generous gift! I've had dogs for over 45 years, and this is the finest leather leash I've ever had. The quality and craftsmanship are excellent. The leash is thick yet incredibly supple and not at all heavy to hold. It's well sewn, with a nice, wide loop end. The sturdy brass snap works smoothly, easy for my arthritic thumbs to use, but strong and well made. It adds to the overall elegant look of the leash. I worried that the snap might be too much for my 22 lb Eskimo/terrier cross, but attached to her harness, she doesn't notice any extra weight. There's nothing negative to say. I'm thrilled to have received it, and know it will last the life of my dog and longer.
I purchased this leash to replace an inspired by climbing rope leash. I am very pleased with the high quality of the materials used for this leash, especially when compared to the old leash. I bought a 3ft leash for my rescue coonhound mix who is very strong and determined when her nose finds something interesting. I have no worries of this leash failing. This is by far the best leash I have used. I will be buying a longer one in the future after my dog learns some more manners while she is out on runs and walks.

Speaking of freedom, if a retractable leash won’t work for you and your dog, there’s also this option. Available in lengths of 20 feet, 30 feet, and 50 feet, this soft nylon megaleash is great for backyard training, giving your dog enough rope to move relatively far away from you even as you maintain control of them. Made for medium and large dogs, you can use this as a run in camping situations or while recall training. The handle is made of high density foam to give you better, more comfortable control. One drawback is that it lacks reflective material compared to the others on this list. Each of these super long leashes comes with a carrying bag for storage.I bought my first Amish leather leash from Leerburg about 4.5 years ago. I have many different ones, but my 6ft 3/4" version is my go to every day leash. I have 2 working line GSDs that have have used others in their training since puppyhood. These leashes are strong, soft on the hand and get softer with use. I have not come across a better leash and I have now given these to two different friends as gifts and they love them. If you have friends with dogs that go through a ton of leashes give them one of these as a gift or the smaller ones if they have a smaller dog and they will love it.

Pay attention to this .Sarah – so glad I discovered your site (by accident on Facebook :)). What are your thoughts on “extension” leashes? I have avoided using them or even being near them since the cord literally opened my leg when my dog ran around behind me to chase a squirrel. I still have the scar, which is why I tend to keep a distance when I see a rambunctious pup straining at the far end of one with the owner 25 feet behind it…I can’t imagine that they are useful for training and they alwasy end up wrapped around people and dogs. Luckily, I went to 3 excellent classes with my Aussie and we were taught how to walk the dogs properly on leash not using corrections of any kind. It involved a lot of stopping, changing direction suddenly and treat giving, but it was well worth it! My dog doesn’t pull and is happy to walk with slack in the leash 90% of the time. Your blog gives me a chance to appreciate my dog’s many good features, as I am often disgruntled about the few flaws she does have. Thank you.
