Love taking my dog on runs and walks with this hands free system. And my fiancee did too. (so much so that we bought it AGAIN for our second dog). Now we both are hands free on dog walks and runs with our two dogs. Can't recommend this product enough. I also added a Carabiner clip to the order so I can easily take the second and attach it to the first so I can walk both dogs together, one on each side. Do yourself a favor and get this leash!
I love the product and the length of the leashes is almost perfect for what I was looking for with 2 40-50 pound dogs in city running! (Just a LITTLE shorter would be nice, but not necessary for an enjoyable run.) Many products are sold with extra long leashes, and 2 dogs on extra long leashes in town just wasn't a safe option for us. The product, while simple, is also high quality and I feel safe having my dogs on leash. The company was also extremely communicative and stayed in contact during the shipping process - Great job guys!
The sidekick checked off most of the boxes I was looking for in a hands free leash. The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 are for a couple of options I'd love to have, but understand they may be harder to provide. 1) An option of 2 metal D-rings instead of having to use the carabiner - it works well enough, just is a little bulkier on the belt and just a little more uncomfortable to use. 2) A way/option to stabilize the rings - especially with 2 dogs, it's asking them to get tangled if they can both go back and forth because the rings slide (and I find it harder to correct them to the appropriate sides as I kept messing with the rings to put them back in place). I know this is harder because people want their dogs in different positions while running and because the belt is adjustable, but especially with two dogs, it makes it easier to run/hike together for the reasons I mentioned above.
Overall - Great quality, great product, and love the leash length that is not offered in many other products! Also a great company to work with!
I have a mini-schnauzer and she is terrible on a leash. We both love this lead! The bungee helps with her pulling and keeps her right beside me. But she still has enough lead to explore. Thanks!
I ordered this after reading the Marking Our Territory blog because this leash was on the author's recommended products and so I thought I would try it out. I've only been able to use a few times but hope to use it more soon with my pup. The few times I have used this leash, I was happily surprised by how durable and convenient it is. I would definitely recommend this product if you want a "hands free" approach to walking or running with your dog(s).
I love the convenience of the hands free leash and I will never run without Iron Doggy ever again!!!! A must buy!
