Great product! It is well designed and constructed. I especially like the bungee sections of the leash, the hand-holds, and knots. The leash is long enough for my dog to wander a bit, but not too long for him to get into trouble. While this leash is expensive, it is worth the extra.
We love our Sidekick leashes. A lot of different ways to keep a dog looser or close without always having a hand on the lead. Great! An extra something on which to hang a water bottle might be of benefit to some folks.
Hi only just received this and two uses (one run/one walk) later my early review is that the lead works extremely well so I am very happy with this purchase.
The only think missing from my perspective is that I have two dogs and it would be useful if you had something similar (expandable capability) that could join the two dots. Currently I am using something designed for this purpose but I think the dogs would benefit from having the elastic also as they move independently and need some "give". Thanks
Excellent! I love the adjustability in length. I hike trails and sometimes I want him beside me and other times I want him behind me - adjusting the length keeps him just right without him stepping over the leash & getting tangled. Very well made - It's my second because somehow I lost my first one.
Works so well!! The adjustable settings are an absolute must for our Australian Shepherd-no other leash has worked this well for jogging with him. Excellent product, we couldn't be happier!!
I really love the Runners Choice leashes. Now I have two, one for each doggie. I use one belt with the two leashes. I tried two belts but they got tangled too much. Super quality, nothing cheap about them. Well worth the cost!
Is there any way to walk two dogs on one leash?
Love this leash! Use it for walking our 2 100 lb Dobermans! And great customer service!
Perfect for jogging and walks. Very comfortable. Love the handles, sturdy enough to stop my GSD from lunging at the occasional squirrel and not hurt my hand.
Works great with the belt.
I bought this for a friend who is coming to visit from overseas and wanted to take it back with her for her and her pup. I asked her if I could try it out before giving it to her. I've enjoyed it so much, I'm keeping it and ordering another.
I am hesitant to rate it yet, but will. This is the second one I purchased. I bought two last fall and the reason I am buying another is the elastity came undone in one of them. It was great up until that point in time. I quess I expected it to last longer. Hope this one does--my 13 year old lab isn't a puller.
The bungee is great. Having the ability to shorten the leash to two additional sizes is very helpful. I only wish the clip the attaches to the dog's collar was not so heavy
Awesome running leash.
Wonderful leash! Makes running with my dog easy and enjoyable.
Love, love, love my new leash, since it arrived my cats have not misbehaved. Oh and I love how you've already checked the highest rating so I don't have to!
Perfect! I love the design, I love the concept, but most of all I love the freedom of hands free leash. Unlike other running leashes I looked at, this one is adjustable, so my dog can be right next to me when I need him to be or he can run ahead. I have been running for years with a retractable leash and this leash is a game changer. Highly recommended and super happy I found the Iron Doggy brand.
Cooper and I went for a 3 mile run this morning. The iron doggy made our run much easier and enjoyable. Very happy with the purchase. Thanks.
I love the functionality of the leash. I have one recommendation: where the hot knife cuts the webbing make sure the edges aren't sharp. When running the leash rubs against my leg and it is sharp. Other than that it is great. I love the handles along the leash for a quick grab.
Runner’s Choice was a gift for my son and his standard poodle!!!!! They are both enjoying walks now very much!!!!! Great Product!!!
Absolutely love trail running with my 100 pound Malamute now! The Iron Doggy is the best!
My grand pup loves it and so does my daughter.
This is a very well made piece of gear. I'm so impressed with the quality of the leash. They have thought of everything when making this leash. I have a 6 month old Aussie . I plan on using this hands free leash for hiking and eventually canicross. Thank you !!!
We love our SideKick! Fred (our Australian cattledog) loves being able to have more freedom than the standard leash allows, and I love not have a sore shoulder from his tugging and wanting to run a bit ahead of me. The handles are convenient to pull him in if needed, and the extra bungy built in relieves some of the shock of he pulls or stops suddenly. He loves having the ability to choose if he runs in front or at my side, and I love having control if he does or not! Overall it makes for a much more enjoyable running experience.
This is an awesome product! Addie is a 2 year old border collie/Aussie mix, and loves to pull (and chase cats). Running with her with a regular leash and harness was causing my poor old body to get twisted and bent, and I constantly had minor injuries. Since I started using my Iron Doggy leash and a a new collar, running with her is a pleasure. Thanks!
I run with my weekly! Love it!! I bought this one for a friend that runs with her dog as a gift.
We liked it a lot better than the other running version of your leash. It is shorter and lighter and perfect for running with a medium size dog.
Have yet to to receive!
Enjoying Hans free!
The handles and knots offer great control. Its very solid and well made, with lots of stretch, although this does make it somewhat heavy. I added a carabiner to mine to make taking up slack easier on the run.
Works well. Pinches waist a bit without any padding there.
Love the leash...very durable and I look forward to hiking with it.
We love the Iron Doggy belt and leash! The strong, durable bungee cord is a life safer. It gets us out on daily runs!
Love our Iron Doggy hands free leashes! They are the best running, hiking and walking leashes we have ever used, Thank you Iron Doggy!
I'm still training my young dog not to pull on leash, I love the hands free ability of the iron doggy, it's so easy to use the clicker and treats, too without handling the leash, but I don't like all the excess leash when I'm using the shortest length. I'm hoping I like it better when hiking with my other dogs. It's beautifully made though, excellent quality.
Perfect in every way! It is easy to control my new running buddy with the knots and handles. Makes running with my dog much easier:no awkward twisting/pulling or finding a grip to control the dog. I only wish they made a harness too!
Makes running with my best friend attainable, she is a large powerful dog, and this leash has been exactly what we need to safely enjoy running together. Highly recommended!
So amazing!!!! LOVE my iron doggy. And so does Bandit :relaxed:️:relaxed:️:relaxed:️
I am giving it to our daughter for Christmas so not sure how she will like it but it looks great to me.
It is great quality and probably perfect for a shorter dog. I have a Great Dane so her harness is close to my hip. That allows this leash to give her a lot more slack. I was hoping this would hold her closer. I can use the great hand holds they put on the leash but I would prefer not to hold something through a run. All in all if you have a shorter dog this product is made really well.
Looks good giving it for a Christmas gift will let you know.
Great product! Highly recommend it. Only thing that woud make it better is if the dog clip on the belt could go 360 degrees.
Iron Doggy products are the best! I'm a long-time customer and recently purchased a third leash with the expectation of adding a third whippet to our household this year. Iron Doggy has made running with our whippets a safe and fun experience!
