I recently purchased a biothane 6' leash and 20' long line. Game changers! The material was perfect for damp weather, beaches and hiking - well made, durable and easy to clean. The long line gives hiking and recall training a layer of safety and made a recent recall session at the beach very fun and effective. As a long time dog mom, I'm happy to now have these products. There are so many fun colors and the quality is impressive - you can't go wrong!

My pack and I absolutely love our leashes from High Tail Hikes! They’re colorful and fun, super easy to clean, don’t get all tangled up when I’m walking multiple dogs and stink-free! I highly recommend them!

My dog and I love our new 30’ long line! It gives him so much freedom to explore and it make our walks more enjoyable for us both! Liz was absolutely great to work with and added some customization to our line and talked with me about some future options for other custom orders. I love supporting this woman owned business!

Well-made, lightweight, easy to clean leashes that are designer quality with fabulous color selection and pops of lovely brass hardware. Absolutely love these leashes!

I had been seeing a lot about these long leads and had been thinking about getting one. I have two dogs, one of who is leash reactive, etc. and who has absolutely no recall when she is triggered (we are working on it). I got one lead to try it out and see if I thought we would use it. When the first long lead arrived, my husband didn't get it. He thought it was too long and kind of ridiculous. Then we took our dogs to the beach in Chicago near our house this weekend. In the car on the way home he asked when we were going to get a second one. My dog with no recall had such a great time with her extra freedom running on the beach. I think it lowered her frustration with the leash and she was able to listen better and relax more. We will be using it all of the time and recommending them to all of the dog people in our lives. Thanks for everything!

I’m in love with my new long lead! It’s perfect for decompression walks and freedom to play when not in an off leash area. I want to order one in every color and size. These are strong and perfect. I love how they clean up so easily.
