The Ancol Viva Retractable Lead is a compact and stylish lead that allows your dog the freedom to wander and explore while you remain in complete control of them. The leash can be released or retracted at the push of just one button allowing for simple and instant adjustment whenever you need it. Unlike traditional 'long line' leads, the Viva leash retracts to prevent it from getting caught around dogs' (and owners') legs or being dragged on the floor. This compact and tidy design means there's no need to roll, fold, or bundle up the lead to pack it away. The super soft grip design ensures owner's comfort even when on long walks. The lead features a thick and sturdy trigger hook for simple attachment to a collar. The Ancol Viva Leads have been tested to destruction in the UK by INTERTEK with fantastic results, assuring our customers of their hardwearing reliability. Available in black, red, blue, yellow and raspberry.

35 Comfortable grip lead
Verified Purchase

By on 5 February 2019

Nice size lead with a comfortable grip handle. I do find that this product doesn't retract as easily as others I have had and the lock button whilst easy to use is also quite easily knocked into unlock

25 Retractable tape lead for 50kg dog
Verified Purchase

By on 14 September 2018

The handle on this lead is the most
comfortable ever however the tape is just too thin and light for a 50kg dog especially if you ever have to use your hand as a guide on a loose lead.The tape is 12mm wide compared to 22mm width of my usual Flexi lead. Very disappointed. I should have paid more!

55 New Retractable Lead for my new Puppy
Verified Purchase

By on 4 February 2018

I had one of these leads for my previous dog, it was the only one that lasted any length of time, in fact we still use it for our older dog. Probably lasted longer as it totally retracts and therefore he couldn't chew it so I bought another, so far so good but he's only 5 months old!! Very simple to use, one button and can easily manage two dogs on the same two leads.

55 Excellent product!
Verified Purchase

By on 7 November 2017

The first one I bought (I now have 2) I found unique with a slightly longer than average length (6.8m as opposed to the usual 5m) + the 75Kg dog claim.
This got tested unexpectedly when I told one of my clients, a 54Kg Bernese Mountain dog, to get on at the start of his a walk; I'd forgotten to unclip this lead.
He ran off full sprint. I had this lead attached to a body harness and the jolt as he reached the end of the 6.8m lead almost gave me whiplash. But the lead held! I reasoned that if it could handle that, it could handle anything; so I bought another one I was so impressed. :)
