The Story

Staying in control when training a new puppy is key to success, but at the same time the dog needs to be able to range out at distance—a check cord is a vital tool in maintaining direct control at all times. Excellent for retrieve, quartering, and basic obedience training. Our check cord features a stiff core to enhance direct control and eliminate unwanted tangles with brush. Brass snap is easy to use with gloved hands. Rot and mildew resistant. In orange.

Polyester/brass/leather. Made in USA.

Length 30'. 5/16" in diameter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Well-made, sturdy, and U.S.A. made. Works well with my German Shorthair puppy. A great training tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Check Chord Really nice check Chord. That is exactly what it is, not a really long lead. It has heft and little to no stretch which is exactly what you want and need in this item. No handle to get caught in the field on brush etc. quality leather attaching solid brass clasp. Made in America. The last one I will need to buy. Expensive. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good training tool This is great for training quartering. Not as stiff as some check cords, but stiff enough. There's no handle to get snagged when your pup is running through long grass looking for birds and the tougher material doesn't fray and snag on stuff. If you're looking for something for a walk in the park, you may want to go softer and get a handle, but for bird dog training and letting the leash drag behind a dog in the field this is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from could use a lighter version With a new English Springer Spaniel pup here in serious South Carolina gator country this looked like just what we needed to keep our boy from springing off into the swamp. It is a decent product, but as others have noted, it's a bit stiff at 3/8"... I guess I had something more supile at about 1/4" in mind to work with my pup. I'll keep this cord for future needs, but a lighter weight version would be welcome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was thicker and stiffer than I anticipated. We have a lab and we take him to the creek at the park and let him chase sticks in the water. He has to stay on leash so i thought this would be perfect due to the extra length. We shop Orvis often and love visiting the local Orvis. We've never been dissappointed we will keep it and use it. It just was not quite what I thought.
