Flexi Your Leash #ChewyInfluencer

Flexi Classic Retractable Leash
   Retractable leashes. The very mention of them brings on an age-old debate. While it is true that in the wrong hands, a retractable leash can be dangerous for dogs and humans, when used properly they can be terrific. It is important to know how to operate your leash and to make sure that you have a high quality retractable leash.
   I have had a Flexi Leash for the past three years and love it. That is why when Chewy.com offered a Flexi Leash for review this month, I jumped at the opportunity. Let me explain…

   We don’t let Bentley and Pierre out in the backyard in the early morning or after dark without being on a leash. They seem to think it is the time to bark and become selectively hard of hearing. That means they must be on a leash although our yard is fully fenced. I always use my Flexi Leash for Bentley because he does his business further out in the yard than Pierre. That leaves Pierre on a shorter leash which really isn’t fair in his opinion. With two Flexi Leashes, both boys have a full 16’ to sniff out the perfect place for their business. This leash is perfect for taking them out during the rain. I can stay under the patio while they make their way out into the yard. Pierre insists on wearing his stylish rain slicker in inclement weather.

   The Flexi Leash has superior control and security with its one-handed braking system. It is incredibly comfortable thanks to its ergonomic grip. The durable chromed snap hook attaches to any collar or harness. There is a strong reflective bite belt that leads to the 16’ cord leash. Flexi is handmade in Germany and undergoes 90 quality checks. Pierre’s model is available in sizes X-small to medium and in lengths 10’ to 26’. Chewy carries different styles, sizes and colors of the Flexi Leash so you can fetch the perfect one for you and your dog.

  3. Okay, do I need new glasses? I did not see this on the products for this month. We too love our Flexi leashes for many walks where it doesn't matter that we stay close to Mom and there are no people and pets to tangle with. We always use Flexi brand too. Enjoy the extra space to sniff around!

  4. I don't go outside when it's dark without being on a leash either, even though my yard is fenced in. Mom loves the thought of using it in the rain. I get wet and she stays dry☺ Great review!

  5. I LOVE my flexi leashes but I agree they need to be used by experienced, conscientious people. I use the 26' foot versions and have for years. I love the incredible German workmanship. These leashes last for years and years! I use the ones that are bands (instead of cords) for the whole length. The bands are less likely to cause a burn if they rub your leg.

    1. I have had several retractable leashes but none of them compare to the Flexi leash. Bentley's is the tape type and I love it! I do leave the tape extended when it gets wet so it doesn't go back into the body wet.

  7. They can work wonders with the right operator. Most of them in my neighborhood aren't in that category but know you know how these things work appropriately.

    1. The boys love to sniff around in the yard so this is a great way to allow them more leeway than a standard leash.

  9. We used flexi leashes in the past, they were handy when we were on wide trails with lots of room for the dogs to roam, and not many other people around. I can see where they'd be very handy to use around the yard too.

  10. We always use retractable leads....three dogs...terriers we should add who like to go in different directions. Never had a problem except at sniffing spots when they want to change positions.

  11. Flexi leads are handy when doing potty chores at the obedience trials

  13. Great review. I always hear bad things about retractable leashes, but when we had a dog, we never had a problem with ours.

  14. Our friends with dogs say flexible leashes are good for stuff in the yard, but they do not like them as much for walks on the street and at the park.
