Excellent quality and beautiful on my Lab.
Needed a strong rope leash for my 55 lb German Shepherd puppy while we navigate city sidewalks in a residential area. Since he's still training, there are still days here and there when he tries to bite/chew his leash. Unfortunately, on Day 2 of using the Mendota leash, he tried to tug at it with his strong mouth/teeth, and immediately, it resulted in a slight fray on the rope. The leash is probably at 90% of its strength now, so I'll have to pay close attention to the fray as the first month of use goes on.
Big fan quality and safe
