I have braided leather leashes for both dogs, Sandstorm has had his for ten years! In perfect condition! Minnie has had hers for seven months! She chewed it, my fault, as I knew she liked to chew leather, I have a habit of leaving the leashes on for a few minutes after we get get home while I hang up my jacket. Well, it happened. So I ordered a rolled rope Mendoza leash from Chewy, a 4 ft one, same length as the leather ones, and the same color. I'm hoping the clip is small, it was advertised as small. Minnie, be more like Sandstorm. Don't chew your new leash!! Minnie here! i is still a gud puppy! the lether was yummy and i was hungry!
