Inara's 5' leash that I made for her got tested tonight! We were at a practice run-thru for our competition on Sunday, and she was doing great even though there were 4 other dogs around her. Great, that is, until an Aussie growled at his owner (in play, but jumping at her at the same time). Inara flew at that dog barking and growling and actually pulled me upright out of my chair. I stopped her within one step, fortunately. But I'm no delicate little flower and the leash was strong enough to pull me upright!
Just wanted to add my own testimonial.
