We're a little company based in Austin, Texas, with an intense focus on quality. Our dog leashes for running and hiking are skillfully handcrafted here in the United States (in Denver, Colorado).

We are incredibly grateful for the positive feedback we receive from our customers and those who previously bought other "knockoffs" of our original hands-free leashes, only to find out they don't perform as expected. This won't happen with an Iron Doggy™. In the extremely unlikely event that you aren't completely satisfied with your purchase, simply return it to us and we’ll give you a full refund. No questions asked.
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!
My dog tends to walk well on a leash, but will suddenly veer to the side and jerk me. I have not been able to break her of the habit and the jerking ultimately hurt my shoulders. With the hands free leash, my shoulders are saved! Also just as a convenience, Iron Doggy allows me to have hands free to take pictures or whatever I might need two hands to do. It has a bungee section that absorbs shock as well so my dog doesn't really jerk me anymore. The leash is well made and durable. Thanks for a quality product!
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.
Absolutely amazing product. Top quality, comfortable, does exactly what it says. My dog absolutely loves it.
Excellent product!! Super easy to use, perfect quality and superb elasticity - resistant to our dog's abrupt pulling.
Also, we had lots of problems with the post (plus covid's restrictions!), but they really helped us get the product. We live in the opposite hemisphere (Ushuaia, Patagonia, Argentina) and Andrew kept tracking our package till it got here ♡.
I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends.
This is a great leash! I replaced a previous bungee type leash with this one, and so far am very impressed with the strength of the leash. I have a 35lb dog who will dart after squirrels and rabbits while we are running, with the strength of a 200lb dog, and this leash provides a good deal of cushion and protection for us both. As well, the customer service here is fantastic! When my package went missing due to a local postal mix-up, Andrew went above and beyond to track the package for me and find it. I love this leash and this company - thank you!
I had a cheap running leash bought from an off-shore company on amazon and it never fit properly and the buckles had rusted over. I'm just so impressed at how much better made and well thought out this running leash is - it's going to let me and my pooch log all the miles.
I have had this leash for nearly 6 years with a dog that weighs 80lbs. A true testament to the quality and standard!
I love this leash! I have more control when walking a dog that likes to pull because I can adjust the amount of lead that I give the dog. Also, i own a pet and house sitting business and this leash leaves me hands free so that I can take pictures and videos while walking a clients dog. Our clients love to see what their fur-babies are doing on walks. I keep one at home and one in my car. This is a strong, durable leash and I can’t say enough good things about it. I purchased my first one at the 2019 Furry Scurry expo and just purchased a second one. Love it, love it, love it!!
I’m a 155 lb female with a 100lb Rhodesian Ridgeback who is not the best on his leash (bad with pulling). I could NOT be happier with the quality and attention to detail put into the design of this leash!
The belt is comfy and the knots and handles are perfectly placed. I loved how my dog could switch sides and the leash would just seamlessly swing around the belt around my torso to the other side.
The tension in the leash was way more comfy for him than his normal leash.
I even let him go after a squirrel without using my hands to test the leash and I had full confidence in the equipment to keep me stable and keep him from getting away. I would’ve paid $100 for this. It just makes running possible for me and my dog-totally worth it!
If you’re looking at these reviews, it’s because you want to run with your dog - and this is the way to do it! Get it!
Great product! I'm running with two very active and large dogs, and it's a blast, easy to use, and very high quality. Couldn't be happier.
My husband and I love the Iron Doggy hands free leash for both of our Vizsla's. We don't leave home without them. Best hands free leash on the market!
