This is the best hands-free leash I've tried!
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!
Congratulations to Iron Doggy for this quality product. The convenience and flexibility are wonderful. I have an extra leash for my second dog and appreciate the handles for extra control when needed and the bungee cord which prevents jerking. All of the finishing is high quality. The dogs and I are all enjoying leash walks again. Thank you.
We have owned two sets of belts and leashes for a couple years and just purchased another as a gift for our daughter to run with her dog. The products are sturdy and have not shown any real wear after a few years of daily use. The leashes and belts work great for running and hiking. I primarily use the sidekick leash with our dogs. With dogs running in a heel position, I still have a lot of slack in the leash I often clip it on below the leash handle to take up some slack; so my only product suggestion would be an even shorter version of the sidekick leash or extra D ring(s) on the sidekick to allow for shortening it. Overall these are great products.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and suggestions. We will definitely review your suggestion. After all, that's how we came up with the SideKick in the first place! :) We're so glad to hear that you are enjoying your newer leashes. It means a lot to us that you've been with us for years. Thank you again!
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.
2020 has been full of surprises, but we are still shipping!
As of October 2020:
Domestic (within the 50 United States) - Your new Iron Doggy™ ships quickly anywhere in the U.S. via USPS Priority (padded envelope) for only $7.95 and includes USPS Tracking®. All US Territories and Military Bases (APO/FPO) are also included as domestic.
All USPS domestic shipments are currently being delivered on time (within 1 to 3 business days, including Saturday) within the U.S.
All orders are processed and shipped the same day when placed Monday through Friday before 3pm CST (Central Time). We always try our best to get your order out the same day (even if it’s placed after the time listed above).
Canada - As of October 2020 - If you are shipping to Canada 🇨🇦, (and you prefer not to wait), we recommend UPS® Standard as an alternative since it is faster and is delivered right to your door. Note: There may be an additional COD - Import Tax fee due with all UPS® shipments to Canada. Otherwise, USPS First-Class International delivery times are currently arriving within about 9 to 10 days (depending on your province).
International (outside of the U.S.) - We offer USPS First-Class International, Priority International, and UPS Worldwide® shipping options. Due to the current global disruption, it can sometimes take the USPS 14 or more business days for International shipments to arrive within certain countries.
As of October 2020 - If you are shipping internationally (other than to Canada), and you require your international package very quickly, we recommend UPS® Worldwide for International shipments, since USPS First-Class International delivery times are slightly extended. Note: There may be an additional import tax due only with UPS® shipments.
Otherwise, USPS First-Class International should arrive within 2-3 weeks depending on your global destination. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adapt to this “new normal." 🙂
