Zumi has a really cool rescue/shelter program called "Heeling Start". Rescues and shelters that take part in their program receive 5 free leads and 30% off any leads after that. They're strong, durable and yet soft on the hands, so they're prefect for this.
Zumi leashes come in three styles: Clip (a standard, basic leash), Slip (a slip lead) and Dual. I was sent the Dual, and I love it because it's both a slip lead and a clip! It's great for the beach, where Mom can quickly contain me if need be without fumbling around for a snap.
They come in 2', 4' and 6' lengths and they have 25 beautiful and vibrant colors to choose from. Hardware comes in silver or brass, and you have to option of getting your dog's name and/or symbols stamped into the leather pieces of the leash. You also have the option of getting a handle clip, so you can clip the snap to the handle and toss it over your shoulder when your dog is off leash (once again, great for the beach!).
Zumi has incredible customer service. Mom was an idiot and messed up our zip code when she gave them our address, so my package went all over Florida and back to Nevada before Zumi got it out again to us. They diligently worked to fix the issue, even though it was all on Mom, and kept us up to date on it's location and their progress. DM: I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you have crappy service, it doesn't matter how good your product is. Zumi is one of those rare companies that has both incredible products and phenomenal service!
I was sent a 6ft Dual leash in "Blue Betta" with silver hardware. My name and stairs are stamped near the handle, which offer a great and subtle personal touch. Zumi added a handle clip to mine, and Mom uses it to hook my poop bags to, or to put on her shoulder when I'm off leash. Zumi also sent me a FABULOUS tug toy that I adore.
|It's my signature color!|
Tons of choices for both color, hardware, length, ect
Very reasonable prices (ranging from around $16 to around $25)
Easy on the hands
Tug is strong and a blast
I do have one suggestion for Zumi though: offering a slightly smaller leash clip for small dogs would be wonderful. The clip is just fine for use on a harness, but it can be a little bulky clipped to a collar.
