Instead of chopping the end off your used lead rope to make into a leash, pick up a Ruffwear Knot-A-Leash for your favorite crag dog. With a locking carabiner attachment point and a comfortable webbing handle, this leash is climbing inspired to the max and safe for your dog, too. Plus, the accessory loop gives you a convenient place to carry plastic pick-up bags.

  • A locking carabiner provides a secure collar attachment point
  • Kernmantle rope leash is durable and maintains the climbing theme
  • Tubular webbing handle is comfortable and provides a secure grip
  • Accessory loop holds plastic pick up bags
  • Reflective trim in the rope provides low-light visibility
  • Small size has a rope diameter of 7mm, large size has 10mm diameter (both sizes are the same length)

I have a lab/border collie mix . . . 7mm or 10mm diameter? Tx

Best Answer Responded on

I would recommend going with the 10mm. The 7mm is still very strong and you probably could use either one, but I've heard the larger one is more comfortable to hold.

Best leash!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a loyal Ruffwear buyer, and this is my favorite leash! The length is perfect, the handle is a great material and size, and you can't beat the durability! My only gripe is the carabiner.. I have a boxer that pulls on leash so I use a halti with her (google it for reference).. and when I'm not careful on correcting her, the carabiner can hit her in the face. Usually this isn't a big deal with leashes, but that biner is pretty heavy duty. Just something to think about. Great for regular collars!

Still love it

Hands down, my favorite leash out there. The Large is a good thickness for our newfie, and the rope has just enough stretch to it that she doesn't pull out your arm when you take her out. The carabiner is durable and easy to function- and I like that it locks, just in case. Plus it's incredibly durable- our newf likes to chew and play tug with EVERYTHING, and this is by far the most durable leash that we've found. I would hands down recommend it!

Love Ruffwear leashes. We keep this one in the truck all times. Easy to use when we forget our puppy's collar. The feel and length is just right. You can use it with a collar if you have a carabiner.

Favorite Leash!

Love love love this leash! Perfect length and very durable. My dog has chewed through many leashes except for this one.

This leash is extremely durable and the carabiner is a nice touch. The carabiner is a locking biner, though I dont see how a dog could sneak his way out of a non-locking one. The land hold is large and comfortable and the leash holds up to puppy teeth quite well.

Nice Leash

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Nice large hand hole/large that is padded and comfortable. Rope is not continuous through the handle. Carabiner is very small but functional. Length is a good length.

Favorite leash

I used to use an old daisy chain with a biner on the end as a leash, then came across this. I love the reflective stream that goes through the rope and it looks great with my brown dog and his green collar. Handful of friends have already jumped on the wagon and bought their pooches the Knot-A-Leash as well.

Set ur distance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great lease in that i can knot holds at different lengths to provide consistent distances to my dog depending on changing terrain and situations
