I bought this tie-out cord to replace an old one I had that was cracking. My ten pound shih tzu is tied to my deck railing using two of these cords clipped together. Doing that gives him lots of room to wander around. He is a small dog and rarely tugs on the cord. There are also very few things that he can get wrapped around. So in other words, he is gentle with this product.The other cords I had (not sure of the brand) lasted for at least three years. The plastic coating on this Puppy Tie-out Cord actually looks thicker and more durable.My only complaint, and it's a teeny, tiny one, is that the clasp is large. It's not too heavy or bulky for my dog. It just looks big.So far the tie-out cord is holding up nicely.Review Edit - this cord has been sitting on our deck for two months. We leave it out there 24/7 in rain and shine. So far, no rust or signs of wear. Great product.
