The Avenue Dog Retractable Tape Leash offers safety, comfort, convenience and style. The leash includes a stop and lock control which locks the leash with a single thumb action. The handle is designed with a soft touch elastomer which cushions grip providing ultimate comfort. The double sided reflectors and the reflective strip on the tape allows the owner and his dog to be more visible in the dark. The snap cover protects the owner from the metal snap should the leash recoil unexpectedly.
