Congratulations to Iron Doggy for this quality product. The convenience and flexiblity 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!
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!
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!

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 15 or more business days for International shipments to arrive within certain countries.
Canada - As of August 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. Otherwise, USPS First-Class International delivery times are currently about 3-4 weeks to Canada (depending on your province).
Global - As of August 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 currently extended. Otherwise, USPS First-Class International should arrive anywhere from 3-5 weeks depending on your global destination. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we adapt to this “new normal." 🙂
