When at a beachfront dog park, most dogs want to play and swim in the water. But, leash laws force owners to use short leashes that restrict a dog's freedom to play. Soft Lines' Dog Leashes for Beaches helps solve this problem.
Constructed from soft, multifilament, polypropylene rope, these leashes float on the water. This means they do not put excessive drag on the dog when swimming and will not pull a dog under like nylon or cotton rope leads that sink. Also, because the leash floats, it will not become tangled up in the dog's legs while swimming and remains highly visible.
UV-resistant and colorfast, Soft Lines' Leashes for Beaches shed water easily. They are also mildew and rot resistant. The open design of the spring snap does not clog up with sand or dirt and the stainless steel material keeps it rust free. The snap comes in different sizes to match the leash diameter requirement.
Using the swim leash protects a dog from swift currents in lake and stream areas. Dogs are also safeguarded against riptides when used on ocean fronts.
Soft Lines also offers the Swim Slip Leash, which does not require hardware and has an adjustable snugger to help prevent the leash from slipping over the head of the dog. An optional nylon mesh bag is available to store extra-long swim leashes.

I use the leash for my Bouvier puppy. Lightweight, dries out quickly. Bought it for teaching him to paddle board. Hoping weather is warm this weekend to out on the water. We walk through a lot of wet grass and this is perfect for that!!!
I have a 40 lb golden doodle puppy that loves to swim in salt water.
This rope does float nicely and is highly visible on top of murky water.
You do have to be quite a rope wrangler, since a dog might double back or cross the rope. I haven't had any impossible knots.
The rope IS fairly soft, but if the dog pulls hard or the rope gets sandy, you WILL need gloves. I have rubberized work gloves that do the trick.
