How is SmartLeash different from a standard retractable leash?
SmartLeash operates like any other retractable leash until your dog tries to run or bolt from you -- then SmartLeash quickly and safely stops the leash from extending farther. A quiet click is heard when the leash activates automatically. SmartLeash stays locked until your pet releases tension on the leash. You can always push the brake button until it clicks to lock or unlock the leash manually, just like a standard retractable leash.
