Well made, well constructed item. The gold ,red & white stitching is beautifully done. I use it on a 19 inch leash & it just the right size. It would be perfect on a 5 foot leash too. Perhaps if they made one with with a clear card holder for a service dog card. It would be extra handy. But very nice as is. I highly recommend this item.
