Myles Alexander

This is our third run using the leash. It feels very light and strong, I hardly feel that I’m wearing it.
We use the leash with a reflective vest and Myles and I are very happy.

Hi Pedro, Thank for your feedback. We're really glad to hear that you and Myles are happy with your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Love this product

I have used this leash every day for 7 years and it's still going strong. I went to buy another one and when I searched on Amazon it came up with knock-offs of Iron Doggy. It looked good in the picture so I bought one, but when I received it there was no comparison to Iron Doggy. That product was very cheaply made and much thinner and just not even close. I returned it and googled Iron Doggy and found it and bought the real thing. Such a beautifully made, quality product. Love my Iron Doggy leashes and belt.

Kerry, Thank you for your feedback. We're really glad to hear that you have been enjoying your original hands-free gear for so long. Thank you so much again!

I love this leash!

I have a pitbull that loves to pull, and this leash has saved my life. It allows me to keep both hands free and direct my dog with commands, instead of accidentally choking him every time he pulls. The leash is incredibly sturdy, comfortable to wear, and well designed with double bungees and handles. I would recommend this product to literally any dog owner.

Ian, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pitbull pup are enjoying your new hands-free gear. Thank you so much again!

Bye bye forearm pain 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Trying to walk my Blue Tick Beagle (Leroy) was somewhat challenging when all he really wanted to do was hunt. When I got my second dog Jennay, walking both dogs was a struggle and took quite a toll on my forearm. This leash has saved my forearm, allowed me to sip on coffee, and successfully chase rabbits and squirrels for hours without falling on my face! I am forever grateful 🙂

Gina, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your beautiful pups are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Perfect for running!

High quality and excellent design. Bought it after I used my friend’s a few times.

Alexandra, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Great leash

I use the Runner's Choice with the SideKick to run with my two dogs (80 lbs each). On a wide trail one runs on my left, the other on my right. On a narrow trail I use the full length of the Runner’s Choice leash and they run staggered behind me. Love the quick grab handles, hold-knots, and bungee cord. Will recommend to other people who want a hands free leash.

Naomi, Thank you for your feedback. We love Oregon (and the PNW)! We're happy to hear that you and your pups are enjoying your runs with your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Great leash, great customer service

We are loving this leash for running with our pup! As the owner I feel much more in control and less worried about my crazy pup who loves to run and pull. I also want to say we experienced great customer service from Iron Doggy. Soon after order, we had received a shipping notification that our leash was on the way, however, a few weeks later nothing had been delivered. I reached out to Iron Doggy to see if they had any tracking information - the leash had gotten lost by USPS but Iron Doggy was communicative and shipped me a brand new leash almost immediately. Thanks Iron Doggy for the great customer service!

Stephanie, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your runs and walks with your new gear. Glad we could help. Thank you again!

Exceptional— sturdy, heavy duty, comfy!

We have a 8 month power house puppy who loves to run and pull. This running leash is perfect to control her on walks and runs. I love the double handle option so I can safely reel her in if things get rowdy. I already bought another one for our 100+ lb 7 year old dog!

Liz, Thank you for your feedback. We're so happy to hear that you and your beautiful pups are enjoying your runs and walks with your new gear. Thank you again!

Heavy duty

I use this all the time because I just love the belt feature. We run, hike, and backpack with ease and he hasn’t chewed through it yet like our last one (diff company). I will say this one is physically heavy. When I drape it around my neck on a trail, it’s noticeable. And I’m sure he feels the same. I also wish the leash end had a hook so I could attach it to other things (belt loop, etc.) when I can’t find the belt part. Love the adjustability!

Sofia, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your beautiful pup are enjoying your runs and hikes with your new gear. The D-ring at the top end of your Runner's Choice Hands-Free leash is designed purposefully to be there, so you can easily connect it to your Iron Doggy™ Belt, in order to become hands-free - Thank you for the photos. Happy Trails!

Absolutely love it

You can tell this was made by people who actually run with their dogs - it has all the right features, is easy to adjust even mid run and is sturdy! My dog and I love it!

Erin, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your runs with your new gear. Thank you again and Happy 2022!

Great lead if you’re sick of getting hauled around by your dog

My Viszla pulls like a husky and it ruins my enjoyment of taking him out. This leash takes a lot of the discomfort out of the walk now. He still pulls but I feel far more in control. It’s also great for running with him. It did take a couple of weeks to arrive so be mindful of that if ordering from the UK.

YP, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your Vizsla pup are enjoying your new gear. We apologize for any USPS COVID-related delays to the UK. Thank you again and Happy New Year!

Hands-free walking

I use this for walking my 7 month old Chow, it's much easier with the lead attached to my waist than in my hand.

Chris, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your Chow are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again! ~Happy New Year!

Great for hiking and running!

I took my very strong pup on a hike and wore this leash and it was such a great experience. She pulled me up the mountain a bit, but the leash was so strong and sturdy enough for me to stay in control. I also took her on a run with some friends. The first few miles she was quite ahead of me and the last mile she was right by my side, which the leash was a little long for, but I could’ve adjusted it to make it shorter, I was just lazy. But I’m glad the leash has that feature so I can utilize in the future. The handles are in great positions if you need to get control of your pup quickly (especially when we were passing by people on the run).

Megan, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your strong pup are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Would recommend

Good for runs so far. The different clips points are nice to adjust the length. We have not taken it on the trails yet, but seems like it will work better than our previous leashes with the nice long length.

Joseph, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Superb bit of kit

Simply the best on the market by a long mile. Superb design, incredibly well made, robust, and very easy to use. Highly recommended.

Gareth, Thank you for your feedback all the way from the UK. We're glad to hear that you and your pup are enjoying the design of your new gear. Thank you so much again!

This product delivers!

This is exactly what I was looking for. It is a quality made product perfect for running or just walking with a dog that pulls some. The bungee cord feature makes it so you don’t get jerked around and the 2 handles on the leash make it easy to pull the dog in when crossing roads or passing other dogs. I’m very satisfied with this product.

Richard, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pup are enjoying the functionality of your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Freedom while running!

I love the freedom of being hands free while out for a run with my pup. I looked at several other brands and products and they all had things I didn’t like. This leash beats the others by a long shot. The clips are sturdy and secure and the material is high quality. The bungee has just enough resistance without too much recoil when my dog explores a little further. I also like that the leash can freely move around my waist on the waist belt so I’m not constantly adjusting from left to right. Overall this is definitely worth the price!

Lorissa, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pup are enjoying the functionality of your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Great Product

I don’t usually do reviews but I really like this product. I was looking for a quality hand free leash option and found it here. I’d highly recommend to runners, hikers, walkers that are looking to go hands free with their dogs. I also use it as a stepping stone to off leash training.

Jared, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Great product

Great service, great product, worth the money and well made.

Joe, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We're happy to hear that you are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Amazing Design

Amazing design, easy to use. Makes it so easy to walk/run with my fur buddy.

Linda, Thank you so much for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your fur buddy are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Great product

A lot more comfortable than I expected. It has made walking my Rhodesian Ridgeback a lot easier, especially with the placement of the 2 different handles. I've only used it a couple of times, but so far so good.

Bryan, Thank you so much for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your Rhodesian Ridgeback are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Really Useful

Very Happy with the leash. Solidly constructed and well designed. I’ve very much enjoyed running and hiking with my loveable but flighty greyhound using this hands free leash.

Craig, Thank you so much for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you and your beautiful greyhound are enjoying your new gear. Thank you again!

Hands free leash

This works a like a treat. Good quality throughout and great service.

Paul, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Excellent leash

This leash is now my favorite. I needed one that would allow me to run with my 107# GSD safely and this does the trick. You can shorten it up so they stay right by your side or let it out to allow more freedom. I also use this to walk him when I am managing my toddler, gives me the ability to use both of my hands. The leash also has handles so you can hold the leash comfortably. Overall the design is very reliable given how much force my dog can exert on it. The belt is easy to adjust and very comfortable, easy to maneuver the actual leash on it. It is a bit on the heavier side because of all of the features but that doesn’t bother me, it feels sturdy that way. I would love for this company to have a harness to go along with the leash. I highly recommend this leash, I did my research and this is probably one of the best ones on the market.

Yana, Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you, your toddler, and your GSD are enjoying your walks and runs with your new gear! We will definitely consider your suggestion about creating a harness. Thank you so much again!

Great Leash

Not a runner but my husband and I walk about 4 miles a day with our two Wheaten Terriers. Love the hands free and the ability to adjust the length of the leashes. The dogs only weigh thirty pounds but if a bunny or squirrel crosses our path you would think it was 100! The bungee takes the brunt of the pull. We are enjoying the Iron Doggy Runners leashes.

Alison, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your two Wheaten Terriers are enjoying your walks with your new gear! Thank you so much again.
