I agree

Retractable leashes are often an excuse to let dogs get into trouble. I bought a couple of them before I took training (I needed it more than the dog did) and since then I only use it with the leash fully retracted and the brake on because that's shorter than the shortest leash I could find. It gave me more control while teaching the dogs to heel and as noted it helps to avoid tangling when walking more than one dog. With my 3 little ones I kept finding that after a block the leashes would be pretty much braided together.
