A couple of years ago I was looking for new leashes for our dogs. I was in PetSmart and saw the Kong Traffic Dog Leash. They looked like something we could use since our dogs aren't the most well-behaved dogs when we walk them. I bought the leash and the matching collar for both our dogs. The leash and the collar are made very well. They are made with thick woven nylon which is stitched very well. The leash has a metal clasp that works easily to unclasp from the collar but not while in use. The best part of this leash is the two handles that are padded for comfortable holding. One handle is located at the end of the leash, while the other is about a foot from the leash clasp. This makes it easy to hold your dog near you. This has worked out well for us. We can pull our dogs close to us when certain situations arise such as dogs, people, skateboarders, and bicycles. We are about due for new ones since they are getting old and frayed a little, but nothing is functionally wrong with them. If you have a dog or dogs that aren't well-behaved walkers, then these leashes will help a lot when certain situations arise.
