My patterdale LOUIE decides wether to lead, walking alongside or to take a step behind. We are in our silver years & a lot slower together, but this new "jogging" belt helps me to be hands free from the lead to use my walking poles. A brilliant adaptation.
Very impressed with quality and how fast it came
The hands free jogging lead makes walking and running with my dog so much easier, no getting tangled up in the lead, and having the bungee cord attached to her harness means there is much less strain on her joints when she's running ahead of me (she's a border collie and can easily out run me) Having two free hands for essential tasks like picking up poo and getting water for us both makes things so much easier. The stretchy waist belt is comfortable to wear and the hand loop gives extra control when necessary.
This belt and lead set is invaluable! I don't go out without it now. I have a cocker spaniel that used to pull, but with the stretchy lead she seems to just trot along nicely. Having her attached to the belt is useful for hands free walking too. I can walk my other dog at the same time, armed with treats, poop bags,my phone and keys. I am about to order another for my husband.
Brilliant product allowing me to jog hands free with my dog. Handy clasp cover for comfort and useful poo bag pouch as well as phone pouch.
Good quality product which arrived quickly. Ticks all the boxes for what I needed to be able to run with our pooch without pulling my arm out of its socket. The phone and doggy bag attachment mean totally hands free.
Works exceptionally well running a collie that has a desire to pull when running as he likes to lead. The cushion lead reduces the pulling.
I first saw this style of lead on Countryfile, an article about people racing with their dogs. I got a dog to get me moving, and while a Halti helps with his pulling, it's still a strain on the arms to run while holding a conventional lead and keeping him under control. This belt and lead combo does away with the strain.
You get an impressive kick of speed when the dog decides he's going to go for it, but I've never felt out of control. It's comfortable, the 2 pockets are perfect for phone and dog treats but they do slide around a little when he's pulling. The clips are sturdy, the padding generous, the adjustment has more than enough room to move from me (a large gentleman) to my teenage son who's tried this rig with the dog and his longboard. The grab handle on the lead means you're never out of control of the dog.
Wish I'd got one years ago.
Great quality great service
2nd one I've bought can't go wrong... as long as your dog is behind you. Takes a lot of effort to get that sorted. Great product though and service
