A wonderful hands free leash as a service dog owner allows me to keep using both hands at work and in public while my companion is safely at my side. I love that the length of the leash is adjustable to allow the dog to be closer to your side or have a bit more wiggle room, and love the quick release of the buckles is useful when a big butt sniffing circle with the neighbor dog leads to tangled leashes too. It works great for running as well as continuing your morning coffee and scrolling as you take your best friend for a morning walk.
I’ve been using this with my new puppy and am astonished at how well it works. You do need to swing it around by hand as the dog walks around, but you get used to it and so does the dog! She seems to have instinctively learned how far she can go and mostly just pitter patters next to me with the leash slack. I did have to do a little “stop dead in my tracks” every time she pulls and not start walking again until the leash is slack but she learned quick!
These leash has worked really well for my dog and I. I can take her hiking with it or use it for training. It fits my waist nicely and the length is adjustable so I can choose how close or far she is from me. My pup is a little over 30lbs and not a huge puller so the leash is plenty sturdy for our use. The buckle is plastic so if you have a big dog who is a strong puller, it might not hold but that is just speculation on my part. I did a lot of research and this is definitely the best hands-free waist leash I could find for a good price.
This is awesome! I take my pup everywhere with me. She has been professionally trained in advanced obedience & off leash walking. Even in public. She is almost never on a leash. I took her on her first vacation recently to a city that allows dogs practically everywhere but there is also heavy street traffic. I bought this because i wanted to enjoy the shops & galleries with her & not have to worry about the "what if's". Not to mention getting the skink eye from others for having her off leash.
