The mendota leash is a great quality leash. They have lasted for 5 years riding in the bed of the truck to and from hunts.

she's learning !

i own a young rescue girl, approximately 3 years old. she's been through two owners plus the rescue kennel and shows some signs of abuse. the vet could not define with definite certainty the exact nature of abuse. she has adapted marvelously and this lead allows close proximity for training yet allows her some freedom to opt for obedience or correction....nothing forceful, just keeps her in check. great lead for training, walking, and restraining from bolting....getchu one !

My GSP doesn't leave home without a Mendota leash...It's the best leash to train and control your hunting dog.

6ft snap lease for my German Shorthaired Pointer
June 4, 2022
Very well manufactured leash, not overly abrasive on your hand but has that firm good feel on your hand. It is very durable and looks absolutely amazing. I’m going to buy a couple more to give away to my dog lover friends. Great buy!
  • Durable, lightweight, great addition to my new gun dog arsenal of training equipment.
  • Nothing yet to report, no cons.

I bought the black Mendota leash for one of my dogs and I'm impressed! This leash is soft and easy on the hands, and also feels very quality. It is THE BEST leash I've ever used. Perhaps if you used it in the heavy brush and briars some of the thread loops would pull out, but I have only used mine for normal stuff and kept out of the briar patches. So far it looks great! I want to get a matching one for my other dog. The look that the leather adds to the leash is really cool. I just love using this leash!
  • Thickness
  • Quality feel
  • Softness
  • Seems durable
  • Easy on the hands
  • Beautiful
  • Can be somewhat heavy for use with puppies and small dogs.

Rope leash
May 20, 2021
Well made rope leash. I like the size for comfortable handling and good grip. Also like the color option because I have a problem remembering to pick it up after taking it off the dog ... color helps me remember and find it.
  • Nice length and diameter for easy handling and grip. Color option makes it easier to see and find while training. Appears to be very well made and looks like it will be long lasting. I would recommend this leash.
  • No cons as far as I can tell.

After using this leash I will never go back to a flat one!!! Very solid feel in my hands and strong!! Great craftsmanship and it also matches my whistle lanyard!!!

Love this leash!
September 3, 2020
I will never go back to flat nylon leashes. My coonhound pulls really hard, and the flat leashes really hurt your hands. This rope leash has helped considerably. The hunter green looks great and the leather trim of the leash handle matched the leather mahogany collar well.
  • Soft, easy to use, well-made.
  • Can snag easily, especially if it gets near velcro. Unfortunately resulted in a few loops of thread hanging out after about a month of use.

It is lighter than it looks, which is nice. Am using it for a very chewy 4 month old BC puppy. We walk about 5 miles a day and she play-chews on it a lot while she bounces around. It takes the damage better than a leather leash. I bought the orange one for walking in low visibility and night. The bright color is very helpful. Excellent product admired by many other dog walkers.

This leash is amazing!!! I ordered it because I had seen some of my friends that had them, loved them, and recommended them, and I am not disappointed! It's every bit as great as everybody says!!! Our old leash, which was just a 1 inch nylon one from Petco, was on it's last legs and nearly chewed through, so we needed one anyways, and this is a great replacement!!! Much softer too, and I have a feeling it will last longer!! The only thing that I'm a little worried about is how strong it would be when he lunges or pulls. It seems like it would hold, but I'm not sure. But that's just with my dog, as he can be a little overexcited and reactive on leash, and he's huge, but I think for most dogs it would be fine. I haven't had to test this leash as we have a shorter one we use for more control in situations like that. I DO think this leash would hold though. I'm just a bit paranoid. Anyways, this is a GREAT leash, and I highly highly recommend it.

Great leash. I have been looking for this leash since 2008. I bought a much shorter one, but it was too short. It's easy to handle and a good length for a stroll, yet can be easily wrapped around my hand if I need it shorter.

I was so happy with the Mendota snap-leash I bought for my terrier that when my cockapoo's leash gave out, I immediately ordered another. Also: perfect service both times from Mr Snell's company.

The leashes are a little thick. I was used to flat nylon that was very flexible and light. I think these will be fine once we get used to them, and they appear to be assembled well.They also appear durable and look good.

It was thicker than I thought. A little heavy for my 4 month old puppy, but when he gets to be all of 15 pounds, I think I can use it. Very high quality thrash, though!

This is the best leash I've ever used for large breed dogs. It's comfortable in my hand, even when they pull. And it's sturdy and durable. I have had my last one for almost 15 years and only bought this second one because I recently got a second dog.

My new puppy loves his leash. It is bright and sturdy. Some of the leash drags the ground as our dog is only 14 wks old. But it wiped right clean and otherwise does its job. Thank you.

Leash would be a 5 star for my own dogs, which are trained pretty well, but I bought this one for walking at the Humane Society, where the dogs are generally pretty pully. The loop around the wrist can really cut in. For winter, with gloves, it is not so bad, but without gloves, 3 hours of walking can get painful.
