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!
We bought this leash when our beloved dog, Neville, was a puppy because he was such a hellion that I had to take up running. I was taking him on 5k runs every morning just to get his energy down to a manageable level. We clocked hundreds of kilometers on this leash, running, hiking, and going to the store.
This leash has been with Nev all the way to outback Australia, where we lived for 2 years, and from coast to coast in Canada. Harsh winters in Canada and boiling summers in Australia, this thing has literally never failed us. Neville is now 8.5 years old. He’s a little greyer around the face, but though he looks more distinguished, he’s still just as much of a hellion who requires daily walks if we’d like to avoid large bouts of sulking from him.
A few weeks ago, after over SEVEN YEARS (!!!) the little lever to hook and unhook the leash finally broke, (after a TON of abuse over the years) and I didn’t hesitate for one second to immediately order a new leash from Iron Doggy.
Thanks, Iron Doggy, for the gift of many miles within my best buddy, and hopefully many more :)
Haley, Thank you so much for taking time to provide your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your pup Neville have been able to put the miles on together with your gear! Thank you so much again for letting us know about all your adventures in Australia and Canada!
This is my second handsfree leash from Iron Doggy. My first one was still in great shape after 5 years of use until my new pup destroyed it by chewing it (my mistake). I’ve used the belt and leash for running with a previous dog and now, hiking with my current young dog. This is great for hiking because the D ring adjusts for different leash lengths (depending on the terrain and people on trails). I have used this leash for running, however I prefer the shorter leash (Sidekick) because I liked my dog running close aside. The bungee adds a bit of give (recommended by my dog trainer), and the built in handles allow for quick adjustment of leash length and control. Overall, superior quality and workmanship, great customer service and function.
Thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear that you and your German Shepherd are enjoying your runs and hikes together (and that you had your previous leash for over five years)! Thank you so much for letting us know.
Had an issue where one of the knots in the cord fell out a few months after getting this product. Customer service was fantastic and helped us get a replacement. My gf loves using the leash to run with the dog. I enjoy taking the dog with me on activities where I need my hands free (disc golf).
Thomas, Thank you for your feedback. We're super stoked to hear that you and your gf are enjoying your runs, walks, and disc golf together with your new gear. Thank you so much again!
Best bungee leash available. Vizsla and Coonhound, no longer challenge my joints! One dog lunges, and so far this is the only leash to hold up to my boisterous Coonhound. Love this product!
Laurie, Thank you for your feedback. We're so glad to hear that you and your beautiful pups are enjoying your new gear. Thank you so much again!
