Review: Planet Dog’s Hemp Leash.

A leash is a leash is a leash—right? That’s what I thought until I tried Planet Dog’s hemp version of the old dog-tie.

Planet Dog’s leash is literally, perfect. It’s the perfect length—about the width of a wide sidewalk, the perfect weight—not too heavy or light, and has the perfect handle—fleece-lined and sturdy. The metal clasp’s smooth, responsive clipping action will amaze you. The stitching is strong and the leash has been tugged, tethered, chewed and still hasn’t torn.

So, I’ve retired my faded red cotton leash and joined the ranks of the label-conscious pet owners. But it feels good to support Planet Dog ‘cuz they do good things for the environment and the pooch community at large. Planet Dog’s Hemp Leashes come in cool understated colors and retail for $21.95.
