ProsHeavy duty Leash

The Giant XL is by far the best real type leash I've ever used. And Gun Dog Supply has the best price around. Definitely don't buy a cheapy from the pet store. Those ones just explode in your hand. If your on the fence, just buy it, this is the best one out there. And only get the XL. Unless you got an ankle biter, then get the L.
ProsBest heavy duty real type leash out there.
ConsUsually, these cost 85 or 90 bucks, but here there only 53 and some change. It would be nice if there was a replacement parts list available. Not that I've had problems, but everything that moves wears out, and sometimes it's fun to rebuild stuff. I can only imagine that eventually the strap might wear out. Even if that was available as a separate replacement part. That would make this perfect.

70 lbs of muscle!
August 24, 2021
My rescue dog from Texas is Pit and Lab. Having been trapped in the desert and emaciated after fending for himself, he now has a very strong prey drive. Fast forward to a happy home near Seattle. Antonio is 70 pounds of muscle, and his walks have been challenging with just a standard 16' retractable leash. He is so quick and strong, that the moment he sees a squirrel, he propels himself so quickly that he doesn't give me half a second to react - thus continually pulling me off balance and yanking my arm. We've gone through two retractable leashes already. Either they're too short or the leash portion breaks. I'm so happy with this Flexi Giant XL All Belt Retractable Leash because it is 26 feet long and heavy-duty strong. Now, when he sees a squirrel and takes off, I have time to react and to control the situation without being yanked or losing my balance. It is truly heavy duty and very well made. I feel like I've hit the jackpot with this rescue dog. Antonio loves every person and every dog. I strongly encourage people to adopt from Texas. Each year, they have to euthanize 100,000 dogs and cats for lack of adoptive homes. I don't know what I'd do without this loving boy. And it's true that adoptive dogs are grateful to be rescued. It's hard to explain, but you'll understand if you decide to give one a forever home.

This is the heavy duty leash your dog won’t break in 6 months
July 20, 2021
Love it my Husky has broken 6 different retractable leashes in the past 3 years of his life. This one doesn’t look like it’s going to have any issues. A little pricey but so far very very worth it.

I like this retractable leash very much. It's tough enough for my 15 month old 160 lbs Great Dane both now and as he grows to maturity. Like others I find it a little heavy but look what I'm using it for. Heavy ain't bad. No other vendor that I could find has a retractable this strong.

Having a 133lb GSD & finding a leash he can not snap was hard until now. Able to trust him when it's extended or just giving him space is really nice. Definitely recommend if you have a larger dog.
ProsAble to grip easily Bright color of extender is great for all hours of the day Room to attach potty bag holder without it being in the way
ConsWish it was a little lighter but understand why it can't be

We love this leash!
May 22, 2021
It is very sturdy and strong. The retractable leash we got is neon and so easy to see. We live in the city, so in between our outdoor excursions, we are walking on leash. The wide belt does not get tangled up or knot up, and it definitely does not hurt our dog when she get's excited and grabs the leash with her mouth. It is on the heavy side but I say this to emphasize it's durability. I am a mom and I can hold onto this leash with ease. GREAT BUY!
ProsSwivel hook to latch onto collar. Soft and durable belt. Easy retraction - smooth.
ConsSo far, none!

Excellent Leash!
May 13, 2021
I was looking for a retractable leash to tandem walk my 110 lb. Lab and 80 lb. (and growing!) GSD. I knew I wanted a Flexi leash (they are the best!) with a 26 foot lead. I also wanted something that would handle a very active GSD who is known to take off after a squirrel on occasion. I was very happy to find this leash and ordered it immediately. It has been everything I had hoped and more. I feel comfortable taking both dogs on the one leash or the GSD alone. The leash feels heavy the first time you pick it up, but once you get walking it doesn't seem heavy had all and it fits comfortably in your hand. The retraction is so smooth and I love the neon yellow. I realize not everyone needs a "Giant" leash, but if you do, this is the one you want.
ProsSmooth Retraction Comfortable Grip Excellent Value Flexi Quality

Very beefy and quite heavy. It extends smoothy and retracts just the right amount speed-wise. The brake works well and has a lock that works well We use it for a Rottweiler. This leash uses a ribbon that is bright yellow and easy to see. We really like this leash and is worth every penny.
ProsThis is a very heavy duty retractable leash that works well. Made by our friends in Germany.
ConsNot really cons, but you do need to heed a few things. Never let a dog start running away from you because when it gets to the end, it will rip your arm off. Instead, if the dog starts to run - hit the brake immediately! Also, don't grab the ribbon with your hands - you will not be able to stop a big dog this way, but you will get rope burned. And be careful the dog doesn't get wrapped around things, especially people.

I needed a heavy duty retractable leash for my 80lbs pitbull and it’s held up great. The hi-vis yellow tape leash is very bright and it’s also reflective so I also benefit on night walks. The lock is super easy to activate and deactivate. This is the best heavy duty 26ft retractable leash I’ve found so far. This product is worth the $

This leash is a God send. Our dog can explore and we feel very secure in its ability to not snap when he lunges. Very happy with purchase and would definitely recommend it if you have a powerful dog that can yank fast and hard. Very well built, sturdy and substantial. So glad we found this! Buy with confidence.

I’ve had the top 3 brands and with a harness, it’ the best by far. I just wish you made a longer one. I live on Lake Superior and it would come in nicely for walks along the shoreline. Thanks for making such a great product.

I have 2 huskies and use the Flexi Giant XL retractable leashes with each. They are durable, extend and retract without any problems. I've been using the same one with my 11 year husky since he was a puppy. Leash can take a lot of chewing with no signs of damage. I would recommend this product to everyone. Worth the money.

Great Product!
March 18, 2021
After a long search, we finally found a retractable that’s truly heavy duty, and that we can feel safe using with our Great Danes (160lbs each). There’s nothing like this available at traditional stores such as Chewy, PetSmart, etc. This is the best!
ProsWide, strong ribbon.
ConsA bit bulky at times. Would love a poop bag holder incorporated into it...

This leash is top quality. My best friend is 175 pounds of muscle and this leash gives me total control. The 26 foot length is 10 feet longer than his old one and he loves the added freedom. The reflective color is a bonus , too. Happy, Happy, Happy.

Retractable Leash & all Gun Dog products I ordered have been really good.
September 24, 2020
The retractable leash is just what I needed to solve a hefty problem. I have a Shepherd dog that needs a lot of exercise (see attached picture). I am older and cannot jog with her. If she doesn't get out and run, she is destructive and plays too rough with my other smaller dog. I use this leash to get on my riding mower and jog her through the pastures of my farm. The dog is very skittish and prone to bolt when scared. This leash is strong and it retracts perfectly so that when she bolts, it isn't in danger of breaking and when she comes back closer to the mower, it retracts nicely. I like the large hand grip for this purpose as well. I am really happy I found this product. I have also ordered the bright orange jackets for hunting dogs and these are sturdy as well. Gun Dog products also arrive in a timely manner. Thank you Gun Dog!
ProsVery strong and easy to use.
ConsNone that I have discovered. This product has some weight to it, but that is necessary because it really is heavy duty.

I purchased this leash because I have a 75 pound 1 year old Lab that pulls like a 150 pound dog when we go walking at parks and she sees a squirt. She is young and has allot of energy. This leash is the best I have used. It's nice and heavy and very comfortable. Well worth the price for the performance. Now I can rest assured my dog will not snap her old leash when she pulls. Thank you!

Laila weighs 90 pounds and is the sweetest dog you would ever meet, but boy can she pull on the leash. Her last retractable leash was 8 years old and getting weak. I was afraid she would pull hard, break the leash, and get lost or worse. I did some research and found your products, and I am so happy with I did. What a quality leash. Laila's vet was even commenting on it today remarking on the quality also. I do not mind paying a higher price for good craftsmanship like this leash is. I have a 45 pound SCWT that will be needing a new leash too. I will be back.

You need to have a bite resistant cover for the first 6-8 inches up the beginning of the leash. Mine now has a 2 inch gray sleeve where the hook mates with the leash. Just make sure that longer so the dog can't turn his head to bite on the leash. I have had 4 of your leashes and I liked them all. They have all come to the end because of the dog biting them through.
