Dogs love a life of off-leash pursuits, but responsibility and conditions often call for the security and the control of a leash. The Ruffwear Quick Draw Leash allows off-leash freedom with the security of a short restraining leash. Just clip the Quick Draw into your dog's existing collar and wrap it around his neck. When safety concerns or leash laws demand, pull the grab tab to release the short restraining leash. When it's no longer needed, wrap the leash around the collar and secure it to itself with the hook-and-loop closure.
I love this collar! Here in Alaska we are able to hike with our dogs loose pretty often, but it never hurts to have a leash on hand when passing other hikers, wildlife, etc. This is the most convenient way to do it!
I had one of these when it was made with the plastic clasp. Ruffwear replaced it when the clasp broke. When the replacement broke the same way I hand-sewed a metal clasp on which worked great til the material gave out. Just to say that this collar is worth having. And now they've upgraded the clasp to metal. Now I'm back to leaving the leash in the car again. If we're someplace where the distractions are such that my dog might break heel or not come, or other hikers might freak out at the sight of a loose dog, I can pop the leash off her collar til we're safe again. Takes a second to put it back on. It's a joy to have this leash back again.
