We love our new Leather Paws New York leash! We ordered 3 styles because this was our first ever order. This braided black one is my absolute favorite. It is the perfect length for me & so comftorable to hold. Quality leashes are essential for us because my dog, Jasper, is my service animal. Since he goes with me everywhere, a comftorable & reliable leash is a must. The packaging was also very luxurious & shipping was fast! We are stationed in Germany with the Army & we received our order a few days after placing it. They beat our Amazon orders in speed! We highly recommend this leash & brand.
