|Agree with Iris, I bet if we go back in time, we might find an upsurge of flexi leash rant threads coinciding with warming weather!
I confess to be one of those who tends to be anti-, I know it's not rocket science, but for me, handling a leash--less is more. I don't like all that in my hand. My favorite leash add-on is my carabiner--I clip Gus to my belt a lot of times, so I'm hands free.
But, I have softened up my stance a bit, even the military uses them for working dogs, so they do have practical uses.
As always, it usually comes down to a lack of dog walking etiquette on the owner's part and lack of training.
Gus has weighed in personally on the flexi, she's attempted to chew through her walking companion's flexi cord more than once! "Here little buddy, I'll have you free in no time!" To my chagrin, she compromised it before I realized what she was up to the first time and I had to buy a new one for my friend! I've been more alert since then.
