You know how some people stash food, candy and other goodies that they don’t want other people to use, eat or find…well, I take it to the next level…I am a leash stasher. That’s right, I am hiding the CHILIPET Dual Handle Leash from everybody because I love it that much. My nephew will probably leave it on the floor to get eaten by our destruct-o-mite Chihuahua mix, Rosey; my brother will probably leave it in his car and then it disappears; and my mother…well, I said she could use it, but she told me she doesn’t want to be responsible for it. That’s how much I love this leash.
Why do I love it so much…here are a few reasons…
Not one handle, but two. If you’re looking to train your pooch, this leash offers two separate handles: the regular one and the one located 1 foot away from the snap hook. Rosey loves people, but other dogs…not so much. Therefore, having a handle that allows me to pull her closer to my side is extremely convenient. The very first time using the leash and I had to use it to pull her back from growl-barking at a Golden Retriever.
A nice length (6 feet). The leash gives six feet of leeway for your dog to walk, which I really like because I’m sure Rosey enjoys the added freedom. This is the longest leash that I now own.
Cushioned handle grips. I’ve never had a leash that had a cushioned inside grip. It feels like some sort of neoprene material, but it feels incredibly pleasant on the hand.
Reflective stitching. I do a lot of night-walking with my dog, especially in the summertime when the temperature becomes more bearable for pets. Having reflective stitching is such a thoughtful feature to have on a leash – giving added protection for both owner and canine.
Sturdy leash and snap hook. The leash is well-built, sturdy, and durable. The craftsmanship on the snap hook is well made, and gives me no worries that it will unlatch unexpectedly or give way for a constant puller. The company states that the leash offers a “High Tensile Force of 350 lbs.”
It looks good. Although my photos do not show it, the black color plus the silvery reflective stitching make for a really attractive leash.
By the handle, there is also this chrome polished D-ring meant for attaching a waste bag dispenser, which I don’t intend on using, but something my mother would totally use. She tried to get me to test it out with the little bone-shaped dispenser we have, but I wasn’t going for it. I like to carry my poop bags a little more discreetly.
