My husband likes these, he feels our dog responds better. I do think they're seconds though as the 3 we have all have stiching coming undone. I do like that it's easy to slip over his head as opposed to trying to clasp onto the D ring on his collar. But for my comfort I prefer the stretchier leashes.

I purchased a similar leash at a pet store awhile ago for more than twice the price. I love the slip-over-the-head convenience, and so does my dog. When it is time to go out, my dog doesn't have to wait while I fumble with a clasp. My dog was trained with a training collar and a light leash, so we also like the tightening feature and the light feel of this leash--but without the barbs. Any trainer will tell you that "choke" is a misnomer--if used properly, a light tug is used as a quick "correction." The slip collar reminds my dog not to pull. What I like about this particular collar is that unlike the other, more expensive one I purchased, it has two "stops"--one far and one near--to prevent actual choking. The other one had only the far one, and I could not control how tight it got. If you want the leash to squeeze all the way, you could remove the top stop. As previous reviewers stated, the leather stops were difficult to move, and I had to apply a lot of force to get them situated where I wanted them. This is a good thing. It means that the dog will not be able to pull them out of position easily. However, I have a highly trained dog who is sensitive to the meaning of a gentle tug. If you are playing tug-of-war with your dog, this might not be the best leash for you. The stops might not hold. You probably need a barbed collar, a clasp and a few dozen hours of doggy discipline class.

This is a great style of leash for walks. There are more expensive versions made of nylon cord which are also nice. I've bought many of these for my multiple mutts- from mini rat terrier to a large Malamute. There are leather slips that control how far the lead can slip. One draw back- my border collie, who does not like bathing, quickly chewed through the leash when I left her tied for a minute but she probably could have chewed through the nylon cord in not much more time. Great value!
They are adjustable. The one that is closer to the shorter end of the lead keeps the leash from choking too much and the other keeps it from getting too big. One think you want to watch out for is that if you get it wet, make sure you move those tabs a little when it's drying. They are made of leather and can shrink very snug to the rope when drying making it much harder to adjust.
