Works, but not terribly comfortable. Instructions are useless.


  • Good material


  • "Lock down" doesn't slide well
  • Not very comfortable
  • Manufacturer's instructions suck

To be fair, this leash works OK and I've had no problems with it. But to be more critical, I expected a bit more comfort and a smoother functioning "lock down."

The instructions provided are for all BD leashes and it's very difficult to see how exactly this particular leash should be set up. Not sure if I'm getting the best use of it.
