Dog's Name: Ozzie

Date of Review: 4/8/2014

We kick up our paws in: Los Angeles

My canine companion(s): Pitbull mix

Awesome!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This leash does everything I need it to do. I can use the loop to keep my dog close but it lays flat when I'm not using it. I can strap it around my was it comfortably and have my hands free while running/walking or carrying groceries.

Dog's Name: Scooter and Stella

We kick up our paws in: Germany

My canine companion(s): Mutt and Spinone

Love It!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Excellent product; love the new designs/patterns. Scooter has a minor complaint--at 30lbs with a smaller frame, the clip is a bit large. Even though it's light, it makes the leash impractical for him when we go for a run.

My canine companion(s): Golden Retriever

good quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This a great leash. Very versatile with the handle sliding to also be a waist belt for hands free walking. It works well for running too and keeps your dog close to your side. It is also much lighter than I expected which is great for backpacking and adventuresome dogs. Even though it is light it still feels very well made and should last a long time.

My canine companion(s): GSD

Excellent

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

works very well, sturdy and very "bite" proof. Could use a little more length when attached around the hips, but overall excellent

Dog's Name: Piper

Date of Review: 3/20/2014

We kick up our paws in: Bend

My canine companion(s): A fiery one.

Ingenious

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I always thought the leash around-the-waist thing was sort of dorky, until I tried the Flat-Out Leash. AMAZING. Hands down, the most revolutionary dog-walking invention. The flat webbing doesn't easily tangle, the clasp is super simple and easy to use and the short-leash handle comes in handy when squirrels and bunnies are around!

Dog's Name: Sage

Date of Review: 3/18/2014

We kick up our paws in: Wyoming

My canine companion(s): Basenji Mix (Rescue dog!)

Awesome

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love this leash! It's versatile and absolutely wonderful. I spent quite some time looking a different leashes before I found Ruffwear and I'm so glad I spent extra time trying to find the perfect leash for my dog. I love Ruffwear's products and will definitely be looking here first for any future dog wear purchase.

Dog's Name: Shelby

Date of Review: 3/17/2014

We kick up our paws in: SC

My canine companion(s): Lab (service dog)

Liked the older clip better

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We recently purchased our 2nd flat out leash because my daughter loved the flowers for her service dog. I really wish that the clip hadn't changed. We won't let her wear it around her waist because it's not easy to release in an emergency now with the metal slide clip. My daughter is 5 and her service dog is twice her weight.

My canine companion(s): Doberman

Great leash!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I might have a bit of a leash problem like some women have with shoes...BUT isn't a leash one of the most important and valuable tools a dog owner has?!! I like the waist clip on this new version of the Flat Out. It is easy to use and adjust. I find it much easier to adjust than the plastic clip from previous years. This leash is great for hands-free walking and running, will use for hiking too. Easily hooks to my dog's collar, harness, or pack. I love that there are always new colors/patterns too. Makes it easier to justify the purchase of a new one (to my husband) since my old ones never seem to wear out (just like shoes)!

Dog's Name: Lucy

Date of Review: 3/14/2014

We kick up our paws in: Buffalo, NY

My canine companion(s): Goldendoodle

Great, but didn't last long.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I loved this leash when I got it! However, I'm only giving it 4 stars because mine recently broke. The clasp on it stopped opening and closing, its just kind of loose and doesn't have any spring anymore. I've had this leash since July, I'm sad I did not get a second summer with it :( Loved that you could clip it around your waist, great for being hands free on our hikes.
