Runner's Choice Hands-Free Dog Leash (with Belt)

***The Runner’s Choice Leash is now available (very limited inventory). 

Thank you for your continued support and patience during these times.***  🐾

We designed our unique hands-free dog leash to take the shock out of those unpredictable lunges, pulls, and abrupt changes of direction. The Runner's Choice is deliberately designed and built with a unique bungee system that has a minimum breaking strength of 215 pounds. That might sound excessive, but if you’ve ever been on the wrong end of a strong dog chasing a speeding squirrel, you’ll appreciate every ounce of that strength! 

We take the design, performance materials, and craftsmanship of our products very seriously. Skillfully handcrafted in Denver, Colorado, this unique running leash for dogs is built to last.

Designed by Runner’s, Defined by Comfort

The Runner's Choice Hands-Free Leash incorporates a unique bungee system and Belt that uses your hips as a counterweight (instead of your hands, shoulders, and neck) to absorb strong pulls from your dog. The Iron Doggy™ Belt has a durable swivel sliding snap-hook that glides effortlessly as your dog moves from side to side, so you can feel safe and comfortable while running hands-free.

Two unique raised "control handles" allow quick and easy access the second you need them. Runner's Choice also features two specially placed "hold-knots" to keep your hands safe by preventing "leash burn" - perfect for busy intersections or to gain control of your pup quickly.

For added convenience, our Solo-Pocket® easily fits on your Iron Doggy™ Belt. It provides you with extra storage space to bring your necessities including those all-important doggy bags and treats.

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!

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!

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!

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!
