It’s empty in here!
After using this lead 4 times, it is cracked in a few different places. It is the second one I have bought and both leads ended up cracking even though they were relatively new
I've had my biothane long line for four years now, using it first with a dog-reactive lurcher and now with a friendly but selectively deaf Bichon. It's brilliant, doesn't get heavier when it's wet, easy to see in the grass, the clip is secure and it's easy just to rinse off when you get home. I have the 10m one and it's great for giving the dog some freedom to trot, run, sniff etc but still feeling you have them safe.
Have used this for over a year now and very pleased with this lead. Lightweight but strong. Very easy to clean. Doesn't easily get tangled. My dog's recall isn't very good( if she sees a deer) so I use this line attached to a harness. It gives her some freedom but I am still in control. The only modification I made was to cut the loop open. Just in case she did get loose,I didn't want the loop to get caught on a branch.
We love these long leads as we live in Ireland which is wet and rainy a lot of the year. So when these go through mud and puddles and other yuck- they are easily cleaned by soaking them in water and giving them a wipe down- dry and clean ready for storage. We use these for recall and outdoor training under increasingly distracting conditions. The bright colour is great and the handle comfortable.
I love this long line, I use it every day to walk my dog-reactive lurcher and it allows him to have an 'offlead' walk in safety. It's lightweight, visible, doesn't bother him and if it gets wet or muddy it doesn't get heavier and just needs a wash under the tap or a wipe with a sponge.
Definitely worth every penny. Bought in September last year & used every day on a bouncy & powerful 4 year old Labrador - we tried numerous leads but this has changed our lives. Easily visible, strong with good hand hold - never gets soggy/heavy from wet, quick hose cleans it & rarely tangles. Only concern the smallish clasp but has been fine. Used with a harnsess it has been absolutely perfect for us.
I have used many long lines as I foster dogs for the rescue kennels I work for, and I am a dog trainer too. Some were better than others but this one is definitely the best. What I love about it is that it does not absorb water, something that used to drive me crazy with other lines. It is quite stiff so it doesn't tangle easily and is visible so when the dog drags it behind I always know where it is. It feels a bit plasticky, not at all like leather, but that does not matter much to me. I've been using it for a few weeks with my young GSD who pulls quite a bit and it's strong and easy to hold on to. Will see how long it lasts, hopefully long, so far there is no sign of wear on it. I would, and will, strongly recommend this product.
I bought the 5 metre lead for my 6 month old puppy so I could safely walk him in the park and on the moors without him running up to people and stock. I have a flexi lead but don't like it - it gets tangled up in undergrowth very easily. This lead is ideal. I can let him drag it through muddy puddles knowing that I can rinse it off in a stream. It doesn't get tangled and is very soft on the hands. The puppy doesn't mind the weight of it at all and the colour means the people, especially farmers, can see that he's under control and poses no danger to them.
I love this lightweight, easy to use lead. I bought the 10m version. I would prefer the lead to be wider, 25mm though. It is extremely tough when you have a big dog pulling on the other end. I use this in preference to a flexi lead but would not use it on the streets.
