    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.

    • 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)

    Good leash

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wish the leash is 6ft long so my dog can have some room to navigate when walking in the open area. Also I'm not a big fan of a lock feature included with the carabineer (just me). So far I like the reflection material, makes visible when shines on at low light. Rope doesn't slip through my grip when pulled by my dog, that's good.

    Bought another one.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second time I have purchased this lease, it is the only leash I have found that my bulldog cannot destroy promptly. The locking carabiner is great. I will keep buying this leash as long as it is available.

    Best leash ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the best leash I've ever used. No hyperbole. I have two dogs that like to dig in the snow or roll in the grass. There have been many times that they would shake off and the leash would go flying off. Not with this one. I know it's on and clamped down. No more heart-pounding moments of fear following an accidental shake off - this leash will stay on. I was very pleasantly surprised that the carabiner slid on and off with ease.

    Great leash!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Nicely designed. Handle is very very comfortable. The double loops allow easy attachment for bags and S-biner but leaves lots of room for just holding the leash. Very substantial. We've got the small one but it is solidly constructed. No issues with "sharp" reflective tape woven in. Easy on and off. Only one little downside. The attachment doesn't swivel. That means as your dog twists around so does the leash. But this is our go to leash; we use it multiple times every day. And it goes great with their Front Range harness which we also really like.

    Fantastic leash

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    We got two of these for our two huskies. The handle is very comfortable, and the leash is very sturdy. I love the carabiner attachment as it is much easier to get on and off of our dogs collars than our previous leashes were.

    Tore my hand up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    We were so excited to get this leash for our Boxer pup. And while it looks great - the reflective trim is ridiculous. There are little bits and pieces of reflective plastic sticking up all up and down the leash. If you have to choke up on the leash at all - whatever you do - don't let the leash slide through your hands - it will tear your hands up. It feels like little shards of glass. So disappointed.

    Pretty darn solid

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The locking carabiner is my favorite thing about the leash. It gives you a little more piece of mind if you are walking a bigger dog. The handle doesn't offer a lot of padding, but it is relatively comfortable. Highly recommend.

    Awesome!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Like other reviewers have mentioned - it would be nice if this had some length adjustment... I did tie a knot in mine, but that shortened up the length a bit and I don't think I'll ever be able to untie it. Otherwise, this leash is awesome! Super durable - my 5 month old pit puppy has chewed through every other leash she's had in the short time I've had her, but not this one! The locking carabiner is awesome and easy to use. And the handle is super comfy!
    I'd highly recommend this! Pumpkin Spice pup approved!

    **Leash is size Large. Also in this picture - "Knot a Collar" (size medium), both in Purple Dusk color. Hard to tell from the picture, but the collar is made with thinner rope (7mm).**

    ***UPDATE***
    Pumpkin Spice got bored at the office, tired of lack of freedom - started really working on this and chewed through it before I even noticed she was doing it (under 5 mins). Still stoked on the handle, carabiner, and general style! Not as stoked on durability as I was at first.

    Awesome!

    It works

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Ruffwear Knot-a-Leash works. However if you have an active young dog the rope will get twisted, especially if you use a training collar (then I do not recommend this leash, the metal rings of the collar will bind from the twisting). The option to adjust the length of the leash would be a nice feature (yes, you could tie knots (no pun intended) in the rope). Lastly the reflective material in the leash can actually poke/scrape your hand if you wrap your hand in the leash, let the rope run through your hands or if you wear the leash over your shoulder it will rub/scratch on your neck. The twist lock mechanism on the clip is more of a hassle and not needed.

    Great leash for the trail loving dog

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ordered both the Knot-a-collar and leash for our Belgian Malinois puppy and I'm in love with the style of both.

    Love this leash and the carabineer attachment, together your pup is trail ready. The rope on the leash is thick and feels like good quality. I like that they padded the handle at the end. It makes looping it over your wrist for long runs and hikes very comfortable. It also attached the collar perfectly and is a great length, not too far that you feel like you can’t control your dog, but not close enough that you are tripping over each other on a single track. Great buy and I’ll defiantly reorder when this one is on its last leg.

    Great leash for the trail loving dog

    Baloo Approves

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My Shepernese loves to help out by holding the leash in his mouth when we go on walks. Sometimes he accidentally chews the leash in half.. This leash is pretty damn sturdy and has solved all of Baloo's problems. The rope has a little fraying from his sharp puppy teeth, but I expect this will at least last us a couple years.



    Baloo is also pretty stoked about the locking carabiner. Not only does he look like a hardass rock climbing dog, He isn't able to break free from the leash when those butterfly's come around.



    I would recommend this leash to anyone with a dog.. big or little, this should solve your problems.

    Solid leash!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This leash has withstood everything my 60lb bulldog has thrown at it. It remains unscathed despite the fact that he likes to chew on it from time to time. It is comfortable to use and the locking carabiner is great. A good, solid leash.

    Great Leash!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this 1.5 years ago when my dog was a puppy. Hundreds of miles later, it is still the #1 leash I use.



    It's in great shape and held up through the pulling phase of our 70lb golden retriever. It's comfortable to hold, durable, and with the locking carabiner, he won't get free. Love it!

    Love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this with the Front Range Harness for my 35lb Saluki Mix. Very sturdy. Long length is great. It has a little stretch which is great because my dog is a puller on walks. Comfortable handle. Carabiner is sturdy. I never worry that it will come undone. At first I felt that I went over the top buying Ruffwear as we aren't a hardcore outdoor hiking duo, but the first time she came across a squirrel on a walk and jerked forward, I knew I picked the right stuff. It was so much easier to tug back and keep her under control.

    Perfect Leash!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using this leash since my dog was a pup. It has hundreds of miles of trail and sidewalk use. Its a little rough looking now, but still works great.



    This is a great leash for any size dog. Mine is a 80lbs lab. The loop on the end is big enough to either hold it there or warp it around your wrist.The loop is made of tubular webbing that is soft so it won't be rough on your skin. This is also extended down the leash a little ways so when the loop is on your wrist, you still have a soft area to hold in the palm of your hand when your dog needs a little reminder to stay close. The rope is strong and last. Mine is faded over time, but still strong as ever. The carabiner is strong and easy to lock and attached to the rope securely. I never lock mine, and my dog has never managed to work it loose. The length is good, just long enough for your dog to stay ahead but close enough that you can still be in control.



    I highly recommend this leash to any dog owner. You will love it. Also as I write this, mine sister has stolen mine because she used it once and immediately got rid of her adjustable locking leash that she has been using for years. Looks like I may be needing a new one!

    Perfect Leash!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Rufferwear makes well thought out products, which I have always been pleased with and this leash just continues with that trend.



    It is well thought out with a locking carabiner so there is no doubt that your magician of a dog is going to get unclipped. I also love the loop for tying a poop bag around. The handle is comfortable and don't rub on your hand.



    The leash is strong and I like that there is so stretch to it for when my dog lunges after that random squirrel that runs out of no where.

    Cute

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I purchased this simply to match the knot collar for my dog. The color is much prettier in person than in the pictures. The screwgate clip is really cool! I use it to attach it to my dogs float jacket.
