The Trixie Garden Dog Lead is weatherproof and shock-absorbing and ideal for dogs who like to explore their surroundings - this lead allows them the safety to do so. This long lead offers a much more practical way to let your dog out into the yard or garden without supervision. Stronger and more secure than most normal chains or ropes, the lead also has its own suspension spring to prevent any injury to the dog. The easy-clean plastic coating protects the lead from corrosion and keeps the lead relatively stiff to avoid tangles or knots. Please note: Despite its benefits, a garden lead is only a temporary measure. This product does not replace the need for daily walking and should never be in permanent use.
