And that is the reason I will NOT use those things. I have been caught in other people's while they were out dog walking! OUCH!!! Those things should be taken off the market. I'm really surprised more dogs legs haven't been severed! 8O
I hate those things for that reason, funny a co-worker and I were just talking about them yesterday, she had one and it cut her husbands hand right open when he tried to grab it. Kinda dumb anyways to grab it but that has happened to me on my leg. OUCH.
We only use it here and there for exercise until the yard gets fenced in. We have the tape ones which are not the ropes but my dog walker placed it somewhere not to be found, so we had to use the rope one. Not a big fan at all - and ouch is right
