Because this leash did not have a price listed, I expected it to be much more expensive than the [...] that I paid for it. I was shopping around for a two-handled leash for easier training, but I was feeling lazy, and didn't want to drive all the way to [...] for the one I saw there. When I got this home, I was so excited because it actually HAS that extra strap! It is also less expensive than the [...] leash, and the "comfort" part of the title is completely true. The handles are both padded, and it is much easier to walk a dog that might suddenly change direction with a comfortable leash! I HIGHLY recommend this leash!
