I owned this leash for 5 years, bought it for my dog Shamrock. He also has the matching collar. The leash handle with the black grip got caught on the car seat between under the seat and the console. I ended up having to cut the leash to get it out. So I was very happy and LUCKY that you still carry it. My dog gets lots of compliments on the leash and even more when they find out what his name is.
