In the Press
“Going for a run with my dog was made much simpler with this hands-free leash”
“We were impressed by the clever details.”
“We road tested belt-style leashes and gave these a paws-up”
Hands down the best running leash I have ever had!
I have a 150 lb. Great Dane that is a menace to society on leash walks. The IRON DOGGY waist leash has done wonders for teaching both my Great Dane and Chihuahua/terrier mix how to walk appropriately at my side rather than dragging me on a 6 ft lead. Thank you for producing this miracle product!!
I'm so pleased with the Iron Doggy product and customer service! The leash is super high quality and will make a fantastic gift for the husband when he receives it for Christmas in a few days. Andrew was so helpful and went above and beyond to track my parcel (on a Sunday!) as I was worried about receiving it in time for the holidays. Fantastic product and company, will be happy to reorder when we get a second doggy :)
I did a lot of research before settling on this hands-free dog leash for my heavy pulling German Shepherd. She has responded well to using the leash and I love it. The belt is nice and long so I can wear it over my heavy parka in winter (I live in Canada) and the leash works well with our training regimen. Thanks Iron Doggy!
Not a runner, just a casual walker but this leash gives me freedom and control! Purchased a second one for my daughters pup.
We got this as a Christmas present for our two Golden Doodle puppies, so far this is their favorite leash for our walks. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase. Thanks for a great quality product.
I have tried many different hands-free systems and while some are great for serious sports like skijoring they are just too bulky and not flexible enough for regular walks and hikes. The Iron Doggy system is perfect for these things. I love the possibilities it offers to keep your dog close or give it more leash. It is sturdy but light-weight and thus also great for larger dogs like our German Shepherds.
Thanks for making such a great system! We also got one system for a friend and his 7 month old puppy and they are enjoying it as much as we do.
I must admit I was a bit skeptical about this leash at first. I noticed it was double of what others cost. I read many reviews and was convinced to give it a shot. Since arriving, I noticed the high quality bungee and overall superior quality of the leash. I use it regularly with my Lab puppy to go on long walks since he can't run until he's about a year old. Iron Doggy has built a great product for runners and dogs. If you're thinking about getting it, just pull the trigger. You'll thank me later.
Purchased both the Ezy Dog and Iron Doggy hands free leashes as a birthday gift for my husband. There was no hesitation in his preference for the easy to grab control handles for jogging with our border collie. Ezy Dog was returned. All these years he has been running with a regular leash in his hand. Great design and a happy customer here. We also appreciated the personal note that came with it. This company cares!!!
I have a very enthusiastic cattle dog, who loves to chase squirrels, rabbits, deer, etc. My previous waist leash was not a bungee leash, so my lower back was suffering from the jolting of her bolting after animals. While we're making improvements on her impulse control, this leash has helped manage things in the meantime so that we can still enjoy our runs! Hands-free with a strong bungee. I also love the handles on the leash in case I need to quickly get a little more control near busy roads/intersections.
I purchased this leash as a replacement to one I had found on Chewy; what an upgrade! You can tell it was designed by someone who has attempted to run with a large dog, from the sliding hook to the handles. I went all in and purchased a pouch and water bottles as well, love that I can run with everything I need!
I love this leash for walking and running with my 2 Ridgebacks. It provides the best control and stability especially when they encounter a pesky rabbit or squirrel.
Walking hands free with our lab is so awesome. This is so much more relaxing than fiddling with a leash the whole time. The bungee has just enough give that neither I nor the dog get seriously yanked if we are out of step or he pulls for a squirrel. The sidekick length is great, my dog tends to walk close to us so regular leashes were a tripping hazard. The knots are well placed and super handy for getting control quickly and pulling him away from getting too close to skunks & cats. I use this as my daily walking leash now. I can clip anything I need onto the waist belt so no need to worry about whether or not my pants have pockets- bonus!
Love this leash!
We love our Iron Doggy leashes. They are by far the best leash for all activities. Our old doggo passed away in the fall (it was the only leash we used for Delilah), and we adopted a new puppy a few months ago and he too is a fan of the Iron doggy leash. We plan to run him when he is over a year, but for now the leash is perfect for our adventures. Today in fact we were able to be hands free in a creek all afternoon and he could swim/ explore and be safe! Love the leash! Its also the only thing I recommend for anyone who walks dogs with strollers (so much safer than holding a leash!).
This leash is unreal. I'm glad you guys made it a reality. I went for my first run with Archie last night and it was awesome. The lack of pulling being felt, along with the many different adjustments with length made the leash very comfortable.
Since I just got the leash and only did one run, this rating does not reflect usage over time. However, the materials used and the quality of craftsmanship, I suspect it will last a very long time.
Keep up the hard work.
