Why do we hate retractable leashes?
You think they are great.
They give your dog freedom to roam. Its like they aren’t on a leash. They don’t tangle and drag like a regular leash. You really love them. I know you do. I can tell from your happy face looking like you don't have a care in the world as your happy dog races from side to side checking out all the bushes and people going by. It looks wonderful and joyous. It's all butterflies and sunshine.
Wrong! I will not use these to walk any dogs. I'm not just being mean or rude and I am not writing this to be offensive.
Here are my reasons.
I have said my piece and I get all worked up just thinking about these horrible things. I think I need to calm down and go walk my dogs on their nice normal leashes. Just say NO to these things. I use a standard web leash for both of my dogs. I like the ones with padded double handles. I have linked a similar item on my resources page if you want to use something like that.
