Over the years we have purchased different brands of retractable dog leashes to walk our dogs. We have found the Flexi brand (Made in Germany) to be significantly more durable than the others, especially those labeled "Made in China".<br /><br />The common failure is the internal spring mechanism that retracts the leash no longer works. (Usually, the spring itself breaks.) The dog is still secure, the tape doesn't break, (If it is properly sized for the weight of the dog,) but the leash won't retract. This sometimes happens within a few weeks but with the Flexii, it will last many momthe even years.
