Looks like Kong recently stopped making this model and have replaced it with new versions. As of right now they appear to only be available at PetSmart. All the remaining Quick Controls like the one in this video that are still on Amazon are stupendously overpriced now. I'll be doing a new leash video for 2017 with newer recommendations!

Jun 24, 2017 - Hello Ian. I'm binge watching your videos! I have a lovely 11 week old Cockapoo puppy, Alfy. Alfy seems to be very trainable intelligent and eager to please but, he nips and Ouch... it hurts. Have you done a vid to help with this?

Christine and Alf.

Jun 22, 2017 - So I hate to say this but WARNING on the ROK leashes, the clip broke off when I was walking my husky, as she got excited seeing another dog and ran across traffic. I was using a large size so it should have held the weight as she is 50lbs, especially for running or active use. Luckily no one was hurt and I was able to call her bk to me. I emailed and called and left a message with the manufacturer but no response.

Additionally my local pet store in Sweden told me that they had gotten rid of these leashes from the store because there were several complaints of the same thing happening other customers. It's unfortunate because really liked the durability and elasticity of the leash material but the clip and spring part is terrible.

Jun 12, 2017 - I just have to say, I've watched several other dog-trainer videos on YouTube (preparing, researching, etc. for my Akita Inu that I will have in the future) and NONE of them are as pleasant as you. You seem so easygoing and kind, I would not hesitate to call you up if I needed a trainer.

Jun 8, 2017 - Hi! The link for the Kong Quick Control... ends up out of stock, but Kong has put their own on Amazon, but for $50.00 instead of $30.00! Petco and PetSmart both do not carry that particular version. I love what it looks like, but.... Any other locations? Do you sell it?

Jun 7, 2017 - Dude I been watching a lot of your videos. Are you a prepper? You should do a prepping channel.

Jun 1, 2017 - Hi Ian, I have tried to find the Kong leash mentioned but It doesnt seem to be available at present at least not on the Amazon site in the U.K. or in the States - has it been discontinued? Just interested to know. The Rok one is available here in the U.K. so I will probably give that a go I think. Pat

Jun 1, 2017 - I keep watching these videos and most of them about the stuff you can get but he never gets into the details of HOW to do the training.

May 30, 2017 - I've never had a leash with a traffic handle, but they look super annoying (adding extra weight that will slap your dog in the face).

May 22, 2017 - The kurgo quantom leash is the best leash i have ever used. Honestly so much versatility. You should really try it.

May 11, 2017 - Can you make a video about dog socialization? Especially for puppies, especially for one who is under 12 weeks and without rabies shot yet:) By the way, you are doing a great job! This is the best canal about dog training!
