Default Release N Run Leash

http://roverrocks.com/collections/ro...se-n-run-leash

Typically I'm not a fan of the whole rectractable leash concept, but this seems to go into the collar opposed to having a bulky plastic handle. Plus it's only 4 feet long, which is nice.

I'm sort of on the fence, I think I like the concept, but I worry about the sturdiness of it.

Has anyone heard of or used these before?

Never heard of it. My main concern would be that letting go would slap/spook a dog.

I would use it otherwise.

Major NO.

Just google some of the lost fingers and leg cuts, along with the skin burns from these type of leashes.

I've definitely seen some injuries from them!
I've used a flexi exactly once and hated it, but I always figured those injuries were more linked to either the length of the leash or darting dogs.
This one's just a little 4 footer.

I do like that design a LOT better!

I also wondered about the one I posted where the hell the handle goes. How safe is that to have the handle dangling? I like that the one you posted has a clip.


Really, I'm just thinking in terms of being a smart@$$ when it comes to leash laws really. "Oh but they ARE attached to a leash!"
...Not that I do that too often.

I use flexies, only when we are camping, or for pottying while driving, not for walks, or for trips to the store because well duh that's dumb lol. And I only have the tape kind. Oh I also have one that's only for Gage to go swimming in because he has to be leashed there lol.

just by looking at how thin that is, just a simple burn across the hand or leg with a 4ft could really cut you by the looks of it.
Just my opinion tho.
