Hello! I was somewhat doubtful that the leash would work as described but it does exactly that! Super happy with its compact size, smooth operation, cool looks and most importantly, the safety and security if offers by best friend Cooper! He was happy when it arrived too! Like he knew it would be good! Thanks for a great product:)
Excellent product. I have had a few retractable leashes and this is by far the best. The auto brake is really great for a hyper active dog like an Aussie Shepard. Feel much more in control on our outdoor adventures. Highly recommend!
Only retractable leash I’ll use. Good quality,long lasting, comfortable grip
The ABS feature really does work. A nice safe and simple leash, and looks great. Shipping was super fast as well.
How cool are these!! Wild huskies no more! Although, I don’t feel the increase of resistance at the end of the pull.
This leash is so Nice! It brings comfort for both you and your pet. Its grip is very comfortable, and its automatic brake is wonderful. High quality material and very resistant.
I loved it because it gives us comfort on the tour, preventing Luna from getting distracted or running away too fast.
Love this leash. The only thing I didn't like was that the handles get slippery if hands sweat. I wrapped mine in grip tape and it works perfectly.
This leash really works! We have a very energetic 85 lb Golden Retriever and we've tried everything to curb her urges to pull on the leash. The automatic braking on the Fido leash stops her as soon as she starts to pull and the consistency of the action is starting to have an effect on her behavior. She still pulls, but not nearly as much. We love it!
I LOVE the auto braking! My puppy sometimes gets the ‘zoomies’ while on the lead. Her acceleration can be so fast I have worried about her getting hurt, breaking through flexible leash (or me.) This new leash solves those issues.
I really have to say......I have used so many retractable leashes with my dogs over the years but this leash is much better than any I have ever used before. The “auto brake” feature works perfectly! On our first walk, the leash engaged and stopped my dog from darting away even before I realized he was on the run after a squirrel. So cool!
Also- Thank you for shipping so quickly!
I absolutely LOVE this leash! I have had it for a few months now and there has been no rips or breaks in the leash string. Max is a puppy...and needed lots of walk training! The auto brake leashed helped me decrease his level of distraction and stopped him from running too fast after squirrels, people, cars, etc. I love that it has a poop bag holder-super convenient! It’s also very stylish too. Overall my favorite leash by far.
Really great leash! Amazing features, highly recommended!
I always laughed at fancy leashes, but the auto-brake leash from FIDA has improved our time outside immeasurably. It allows my strong, energetic puppy some room, and affords me control when I need it. This leash is durable, stylish and really well engineered. Thank you, FIDA!
Comfortable grip, easy to use and excellent automatic break system. This has helpEd Solo to learn not to dart off after birds and other wildlife.
Best leash ever!!!
I have a 10 month old puppy with an incredibly high prey drive.
In a nutshell, my puppy would take off after bunny, every branch, every leaf, everything that he perceived had moved within his vision.
I walk my dogs religiously every evening. I will walk more often if it’s not too hot during the day.
I always used a retractable leash for our evening walks.
This was the walk for them to enjoy.
I didn’t want to be too rigid or enforce our training. I wanted them to enjoy their neighborhood, plus it always helps to tire them out for the evening.
The puppy had so much more energy than our older dog, so I’d drop the older dog at home after a short walk & then take the puppy out on his own.
He was having so much fun on our evening walks, but his constant taking off after every thing that moved, really started hurting my back & it felt like he was going to injure my shoulder.
I was starting to dread our walks.
I figured that someone had to have experienced what I was experiencing, so I would google everything for hours on end to see if anyone had a suggestion.
One evening, I saw something about a leash with ABS.
It was about to launch, so I couldn’t find that much about it, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try.
I didn't think it would help, but I was desperate.
The first time I walked him, it was working. I was amazed. It didn’t yank him, which is what I expected.
It ‘put the brakes on him’, but not an immediate stop.
It actually worked similar to stepping on the brakes in my car.
I thought it was amazing, but figured he’d break it after a few uses.
A week later it was still working.
It’s been a month now & I'm thrilled to report that it still works as well as it did the first time we walked with it.
One night into this experiment, I grabbed his other retractable leash to see if The Autobrake leash was really making that much of a difference.
We went down the block once & I couldn’t get home fast enough. It was back to the back pain & him jerking my shoulder so badly that I swore I was never using a regular retractable leash again.
And luckily, I don’t have to.
I highly recommend this leash.
I’ve also had the opportunity to communicate with the folks behind the leash.
It started because I messaged customer service about ordering the leash to begin with.
Since then, they’ve been following up with me.
They’ve been so wonderful, so kind, so personable & so incredibly helpful.
And, their turn around response time is incredible.
I can’t say enough good things about this leash, as well as the company people behind it.
Thanks for saving my back, my shoulder & my evening walks with my puppy.
