For a neighborhood dog walk with my Labrador Katy, 4 feet is too short but 6 feet is a little too long. This 5 foot leash is just right AND it has a lovely padded handle. It took a couple of weeks to soften up the hemp part (the handle was soft from the beginning) and I have been so happy with it that I ordered another to replace my first one...since the inevitable chewing of her dog friend on the hemp part next to the metal clip will soon cause the leash to break. But I will be ready with my new one. Hooray!
"I love it! I don't generally like to choose one product over another in my store because I love everything we carry but I have to say, the hemp leash is my favorite leash of all time. I've had my Planet Dog leash for years and it's still the same wonderful, soft, strong, feel good leash as when I first snapped it onto my dog's collar."
What is hemp? It's a plant with strong fibers, a variation of cannabis sativa. The plant is genetically manipulated so it contains low thc, that's the psychoactive ingredient of marijuana, you will not want to smoke this leash, there's no high here. It needs very little fertilizer, it grows almost anywhere, it puts down deep roots, good for the soil, and when the leaves drop, mineral and nitrogen are returned to the soil. Get a natural high by doing your part to save the environment, any time we can choose a natural product, we'll do it over all others. Hemp is used to make lots of things, clothes, shoes, paper, soap, it's food easy to digest, and guess what, great dog leashes are made of hemp, too!
The Planet Dog Hemp Leash is soft and strong. It fits perfectly in the hand. It will last a lifetime. And if that's not enough, it's natural. Biodegradable, pesticide and herbicide free. 1" wide by 5 feet long. How nice is that?
