Use of Retractable Leashes
Whilst considered by many to be a convenient option, My Chi and Me advocates the use of a static lead due to the risks associated with using this type of product.
Retractable leashes whilst popular pose a level risk to the operator and the dog in the form of relatively uncontrollable retraction speeds, slower response to control your dog when bolting, personal injury and other factors such as abrasions and friction burns, or body/eye injuries from the hook to the owner or the dog.
For use by responsible adults only. The leash should not be used by children, or by adults under the influence of alcohol or medication. Uncontrolled retraction can cause serious injury to the head, eyes, hands or body.
Do not hold the leash by the cord, do not wrap the leash around body parts and do not use if frayed, chewed damaged or not working properly.
Do not attempt to open the housing and repair if not working properly.
We do not recommend the use of retractable leads near roads or traffic. The use of a retractable leash is entirely at the owners own risk.
Not for use with untrained, disobedient or uncontrollable dogs.
My Chi and Me accepts no liability for injury or death howsoever caused by the failure or misuse of this product.
