Excellent product

Super high quality materials that function well and are easy to use. Everything seems durable (I have only owned it a short time) so far. I love having my hands free but my pooch still connected to me. I love the stretching action and the clips that allow me to keep my friend a little closer (or farther away). Highly recommend this leash!

Hi Tara, Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback. We’re glad to hear that you and your pooch are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Functional and Built Like No Other

My stubborn, dramatic, and part of our running team Husky could withstand no other leash. There isn't a day of running (in over 1 1/2 years now) that goes by without my gratitude for this leash; whether a spontaneous chase of a squirrel, a face off with a coyote, even after shoulder surgery, this leash having the placements of the knots, handles, and a little bungee spring (not too much) syncs perfectly so me (the human) doesn't fly forward or gets knocked down. It has actually helped strengthen me. I've tried to find others to no avail. This is the best, no doubt. In fact, I am very proud to say, a brand new Iron Doggy leash is going to the top dog winner of an Inaugural 5K we are having this October to benefit Guide Dogs For The Blind. Thank you Iron Doggy!!! You are the best!!

Hi Constance, Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback. We’re happy to hear that you and your Husky are continuing to enjoy your gear (and that it has helped after your surgery) . We hope your 5K Dog-Friendly Race (in Papillion, NE) goes well!! Thank you so much again!

Best leash ever!!

I don’t normally leave reviews, ever. But I wanted to get 2 new leashes for my dogs and I even waited on them to become available - that’s how worth it they are. I bought my first leash maybe 10 years ago from Iron Doggy and it is still in fantastic shape - the bungee never lost its strength, loops and connections are all still intact and strong, the only difference is that it has been used a lot so some of the edging has frayed from skidding along the ground at times. In between waiting for this leash to be available again, I bought another one from another site. They aren’t even in the same category. The other leash doesn’t feel strong and has too much bungee. I have 2 Aussies and they are strong puppies (1&2yr old) and the handles on these leashes are so helpful to quickly make the length shorter when I need it and the loop connections work great for connecting the 2 dogs together. I wanted to have 2 because previously I only had one and one dog for almost 12 yrs. I got 2 this time and I’m so glad I finally got them!! I can’t say enough good about these leashes and I tell anyone looking for a solid leash and/running leash all about these leashes. I have never found any other leash that compares - like not even close. In addition, I know when I first purchased I needed a running leash, but what I got was unexpected. 10 years and I still use it on my next generation of dogs! The 2 yr old pup and I have used the belt (same one from original purchase which has never let me down - strong belt & connection and has never popped open unintentionally) and leash for running which is also super convenient to hook the extra leash that I don’t need when we are running closer together. Best hands free trustable running leash, along with strongest most versatile and durable leash I have ever owned.

If above is too long for you to read, just know that you will not only get your moneys worth with this leash, but you will get longevity and strength throughout the years that remains from day 1. These leashes do not disappoint and are absolutely outstanding for any use! Resilient and dependable, you can’t go wrong here. And if you have more than one dog, even better! If you pass up on this leash, you will never meet another that you get your moneys worth and the test or time. I absolutely love these!! Highly recommend!!!

Hi Lilah, Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback. Wow! We’re glad to hear that you and your two Aussies are enjoying your new gear (and that your gear has lasted so long). Thank you so much again!

Works well

Keeps my phone secure when I run, doesn't bounce. Easy to get my key out when I get back to the house. Belt straps are not too skinny, so they stay flat. I use it every day.

Hi Kerry, Thank you for your feedback. We’re happy to hear you are enjoying your new gear! Thank you so much again.

Great new addition

Has made running with my golden retriever so much more easy, love that it is one continuous loop and clip is able to swing around. The only thing that would make this 5/5 if the belt loop was padded as it can be a little painful when the belt digs in or pulls against you.

Hi Angela, Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pup are enjoying your new gear. It's always recommended (on our FAQ page) to wear something under your Iron Doggy™ Belt - this helps to provide padding, more stability, comfort, and counter-balance. The belt should always be worn snuggly on your hips, versus your waist. Thank you so much again!

Perfect for running with a puller!

Jogging with our dog has never been easier! Highly Recommend!

Hi Lindsey, 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!

Best leash for us

I like this shorter version of the Iron Doggy leash, because my dogs are into leg macrame and tangling sister into a spider web as they run. I have a couple of waist/joring belts so bought the leashes only. I had been adding a section of bungee to other leashes, but the weight of the snap in the middle of the leash was not ideal. These are perfect, lightweight with a good amount of stretch. I have a short handle I add when I don't want to do the waist method. My other leashes are hanging lonely now, it's sad.

Hi Deborah, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear about your “other leashes.” We're super happy to hear that you and your pups are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Perfecto

So much to appreciate about this leash. It works for all the things - running, quickly securing me on a coffee run, adjusting the waist length to give me more snorfeling space. This leash has held up to use, abuse, and now - sadly - misplacement. No qualms about ordering a replacement -- thanks Iron Doggy!

Hi Victoria, Thank you for your feedback. We're really stoked to hear that you and your beautiful pup are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

Perfect for the excitable German Short Haired Pointer in my life

This is my second Iron Doggy Leash.
Love these products!
Its perfect for walking hands free with the bonus of the handles to control your doggy when necessary. Still long enough too for the chance of a quick sniff and check of the super smells that my dog loves to do too.

Hi Liz, Thank you for your feedback. We're really happy to hear that you and your GSP are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!

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 you 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!
