I have never owned a dog, let alone bought a leash for one, and when I got Finn the first thing I wanted was for him to be a healthy and stylish puppy dog. I started looking around for a cool leash and it didn't take me long to find Lasso! I immediately fell in love with the length of the traffic leash, and was head over heels with the color options. So I placed my order and waited very impatiently for it to arrive (because I was so excited). When it came in the mail I did a little jig dance and showed Finn what I had gotten him. Finn quickly caught on that the 16 inch burgundy rope that hangs by the back door is the key to going on a walk, and he constantly attempts to get it off the hook. I love the durable material, and the color, but nothing beats the look on Finn's face when he sees me grab it to put on his leash. I know this is just a review, but stories are more entertaining to read. Enjoy!
