Recent Dog Leash Reviews

Ruff Wear Ridgeline Leash

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight leash, with a stretchable, bungee type aspect, which allows the dog to roam a bit without pulling on your arms. This is a compact, easily packed, leash suitable for those activities in which you want to have a quick leash handy. *Disclosure: I received this leash from backcountryk9.com, in my role as a gear ambassador. This leash is lightweight, (2 oz.), brightly colored, and has a bungee element which allows it to stretch from 2.5 feet, to 4.25 feet.  This allows your dog… Full review

Ruff Wear Quick Draw Leash

rated 4 of 5 stars Tough, tough, tough! Lightweight and many grab points, and is shock-corded. Wow, this is one tough and variable leash! This is my second one as the old design used a plastic snap clip that broke under strain. Got the current version with the aluminum buckle that replaced the plastic snap, a huge improvement. It has several grab points, a shock-corded leash, heavily stitched with nylon and that makes it bulletproof! I use it with my 100 pound male Golden, who lunges at every imagined squirrel on… Full review

Ruff Wear Quick Draw Leash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Disclosure #1: I received this leash from http://backcountryk9.com/ to test it out and review it, in my role as a brand ambassador. Disclosure #2: I liked this nifty little collar/leash so much, I just purchased a second one for our other dog. The Ruffwear Quick Draw leash is a short leash, with a tab grab handle. The leash clips onto the dog’s collar with a nice , lightweight but strong clip…then, the leash goes around the dog’s neck, over the collar, and secures with a Velcro attachment. Full review

OllyDog Mt. Tam Hands-Free Dog Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars I love this leash! Great company too! I love this leash! Great company too. Had a problem with first one I ordered with buckle breaking. Well OllyDog fixed the issue and sent me out a new leash (with better buckle that they changed on all their products) that I have used for over a year now with no problems. Full review

Nooksack Racing Supply Trekking Belt and Bungee Line

rated 4.5 of 5 stars In the dog hiking forums and blogs I follow, there is often polarization about whether to leash your dog while hiking. We always have our dogs on leash, to protect the dogs, the wildlife, and the fragile vegetation. A nice solution to hand held leashes is the trekking belt and line; we started using them for skijoring, then snowshoeing and then hiking. We have recommended this product to others who want an alternative to hand held leashes. We use the Nooksack hiking/skijor belt and bungee line combination. Full review

Ruff Wear Knot-a-Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Best leash I've ever owned. This leash is awesome. Best leash I've used, hands down. It's seen 2 years of use and dozens of hikes, and still looks like new. The carabiner is a nice feature, makes it easy to use in the winter with gloves on.   As with all RuffWear products, its a bit pricey, but with RuffWear you do get what you pay for. Full review

Ruff Wear The Roamer Leash

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a new take on the dog leash that offers versatility and hands-free freedom. So this is a supped up bungee cord of sorts with a tough exterior wrapping around it. It has the option of expanding the hand loop into a waist loop so you can take your dog running. It offers a softer material on the wrist then the traditional dog leashes.  I have a 100 lb lab who has the propensity to take off when he sees a cat. He could care less about squirrels, skunks, etc but he wants to get cats — ironic… Full review

Ruff Wear The Roamer Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Cool, stylish leash. I use it with my dog on trail runs and day hikes. We both like that it has a little give while running. Has a really nice, strong clip. Comfortable padded handle with a buckle to hook around something or around your waist to have a hands-free leash. There's also a little clip to clip your potty bags too. Full review

Ruff Wear Knot-a-Leash

rated 5 of 5 stars Ruff Wear knot-a-leash is by far the greatest leash I have used yet. I walk dogs for a living and so my leashes get a lot of use and wear, but the knot-a-leash is light enough for small dogs, strong enough for big dogs, and doesn't knot.   After walking dogs almost every day for almost a year, the leash still looks the same as when I got it -- no wear or tear here!
