This leash is very well made and the padded loop feels nice in the hand. It is a little heavy because the clips are a good solid metal. Because of that it kind of knocks against my small dogs leg when I strap on to the front loop of the harness. It doesn't seem to bother him but I would highly recommend this for a large dog as I am sure it is durable. I like that it can be extended or used as a double leash.
