Consumer Digest deemed this retractable leash with an ergonomic handle a "Best Buy". The Soft Grip Handle provides extra comfort to your hands. Allows you to maintain control while giving your dog more freedom. Extends to 16 feet. It is for medium-size dogs up to 44 lbs.
INSPECT LEASH AND COLLAR BEFORE EACH USE
Make sure that all parts of the leash and your dog�s collar are in good condition and are not damaged, frayed, or broken
ATTACHING THE LEASH
Always use the enclosed safety collar in addition to your dog�s collar as illustrated. The safety collar prevents snap-back if the dog�s collar breaks, or if the leash disconnects from your dog�s collar.
Attach the hook of the leash to the D-ring of your dog�s collar.Never attach it to your dog�s ID tag ring. That ring is not strong and will break.
Make sure that the hook is fully closed and securely attached to the collar D-ring and the rings of the safety collar.
DETACHING THE LEASH
Make sure your dog is under control. Fully retract the leash before detaching it.
WHAT TO DO IF THE CORD/TAPE/BELT GETS WET
Pull the cord/tape/belt out of the leash housing as far as it will go and lock the brake. Leave it to dry overnight in a place that is out of reach of children. When the cord/tape/belt is dry, carefully and slowly retract the leash to keep it under control.
USING THE LEASH
Always hold the leash by the handle, never by the cord/tape/belt You can also hold the hand loop with your other hand for extra control. Never tie leash around a tree, pole, or any other object.
To bring your dog nearer, follow these steps and never touch the cord/tape/belt:
Extend your arm forward and press the brake button.
Step toward your dog and at the same time bring your arm to your side.
Release the brake button and swing your arm towards the dog and press the brake button again
I've owned this product before but the improvements made with the comfort two model are just what i was looking for. the reflective part of the leash comes in handy when I have to walk my dogs at night. also the comfort 2 is much more comfortable than the standard flexi model. I am more than happy with this product.
Does What It Says by Marcella03/27/2012
I'm very pleased with the Flexi Comfort 2 Leash. Leash "gives" when walking my dog and doesn't snap back. Safer for him and me.
Not a good purchase by Eddie01/01/2012
I ordered the wrong leash and did not realize it until I opened it. Unfortunately, I could not send it back so I was stuck with it. I ended up giving it away. I will never order online again. I have learned a lesson and will now go to my local pet store.
