Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviews:
1. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: BestRetractableDogLeashReviewer on July 17, 2018 I have used these leashes for years and they are still going strong!
They are easy to use and don’t require any special training or experience to use them properly. My dogs love using them!
2. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: TugRescueMom on June 19, 2018 I’ve had mine for over 10 years now and it’s never let me down.
3. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: JBH on May 31, 2018 I have been using my retractables since 2006 and they work great for me.
The only problem with them is the price. I pay $20 per leash so if you want one you better get a deal. But other than that, they’re great!
4. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: K9s_Wife on April 25, 2018 Love these leashes!
! I have two Labradors and they love them too! Very sturdy and durable. I leave mine in my jeep so they are always handy when we go for a walk.
5. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Brenda on April 21, 2018 I love this leash!
It’s nice to be able to extend or contract with just a quick touch of the button. A very handy tool to have for my dog who loves to run and chase squirrels.
6. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Steve on March 15, 2018 I bought one of these for my wife last year for her birthday, and she loves it.
I have seen it in action and it is pretty cool to be able to quickly change the length of the leash without having to re-plug it in your pocket every few minutes. We have a big yard, and she uses it mostly when she is exercising the dog (walking around the yard, etc). You can easily change the length of the leash to allow your dog to roam around a bit.
7. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Jon on March 6, 2018 I have had one of these for several years and wouldn’t be without it when taking my dog for a walk.
Easy to use and great to extend the lead when stopping off at places off the beaten track. I even leave it in my car so it’s always to hand.
8. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: VLB on March 1, 2018 A superbly designed lead that allows my dog the freedom to move about and interact with the world, while keeping him close when needed.
Also doesn’t impede me when I’m out cycling.
9. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Jon on February 20, 2018 Always liked these leads.
I got one when they first came out and still have it now. Got another for my second dog when he was a pup, and this has come in very handy at times. Recently I was out on a walk and saw a rabbit in the undergrowth.
I stood still and he did too (both of us). Then I took a couple of steps forward and so did he. I then realised that if I kept moving forward, the lead would reel out and the rabbit would bolt. So I stood stock still and enjoyed watching him scamper into his burrow.
10. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Ken on February 15, 2018 My dog loves this retractable leash! It gives him the freedom to roam without having to worry about him getting away from me.
The price is very reasonable for what you get. I definitely recommend this.
11. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Rita on February 15, 2018 I love this retractable leash. I can give my dog the freedom to roam, but still keep control of him.
I would definitely recommend this leash.
12. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Larry on February 4, 2018 This is a great product for my dog. She tends to pull when we walk and this allows her freedom to run a bit but still stay close enough to not get too far ahead of me.
Easy to use, reliable, lightweight and strong.
13. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Chris on January 29, 2018 I am really happy with this leash. The other retractable leashes are so big and bulky but this one is very small and lightweight.
It’s also very durable and strong.
14. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Martin on January 28, 2018 I like this retractable dog leash a lot. It’s light weight and easy to carry around.
It’s small enough to fit in my pocket. The handle is ergonomic so it’s comfortable to hold. It’s also strong and durable. It doesn’t feel like it’s going to break or snap if my large dog pulls on it.
15. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Jon on January 21, 2018 Seems very well made and the perfect length for my dog, who is large but not huge. Also very easy to wind back up and fits nicely into a side pocket of my bag when not in use.
Nice and simple, does the job!
16. Best Retractable Dog Leash Reviewed By: Wayne on January 20, 2018 I’ve been using this leash for about a month now with my rescue dog who is a strong puller and it’s been great. Very durable, nice and light, and has a nice grip on the handle.
I highly recommend it.
18 of 18 people found the following review helpful. Great retractable leash! By on February 8, 2018 I bought this a few weeks ago for my parents dog and it’s worked great.
It’s very well made and while I was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t be strong enough to hold back their dog (who can be quite a puller at times) I haven’t had any issues with it stretching out too much or at all really. In fact, I’ve been pretty impressed at how well it holds its form.
The built in button to lock it in place is pretty cool too and makes for easy storage. The handle is nice and large and very comfortable to hold.
My only minor complaints would be that it’s a bit heavy (though I imagine this is due to it being very durable) and the button to lock it in place when not in use is a bit hard to press (maybe wear it will improve this).
All in all, great product and I’d definitely recommend it.
