Hands Free Dog Leash

$28.99 $22.97

available in seven energetic colors.

The Tuff Mutt hands-free bungee leash was designed because our dog goes nuts, bonkers, spastic (you get the point) when he sees a squirrel, rabbit or other furry creature. Hey, maybe we have something in common…or maybe not. But the great thing is that the springiness of our built in bungee absorbs some of the shock when he throws his weight around or suddenly stops and changes direction. So naturally, it makes this leash great for everyday walks, running or hiking.

THE SIMPLE SOLUTION FOR ANY GREAT ADVENTURE.

If you are a runner and you have never run with your dog hands free, you are totally missing out. You probably notice that it’s not super convenient to hold a leash in one hand while you are running. Your shoulders and back ache, and your running times are not the best. Our lightweight reflective waist belt allow you to get your natural running motion back. Not a runner? Going hands free gives you the freedom to use your cell phone, read a book or pick up your dogs…business with ease.

Have you ever been in crowded places, like the fair or downtown city streets? Keeping your dog close to you is a pain…right? We designed this leash with two easy to grab control handles, that make it a breeze to keep your dog right next to your side in those uncomfortably tight situations.

Now that the days are getting shorter and it’s dark when you get home from work (bummer) the three seams of bright reflective stitching are super cool and will keep you safe and seen around the neighborhood.

We like to let our dog “think” he is in charge by giving him just the right amount of freedom. That’s why we designed a strong 48″ lead with a bungee that springs up to 60″, and an easy slide belt clip that allows him to move seamlessly from side to side, no tangles, no tripping.

Choose from one of seven energetic, athletic colors. Leash works best with medium to large dogs (30-100lbs)

    I love this leash! It is perfect for running with my 2 pups and pushing a stroller. I had a running belt prior but my dogs pull and everytime it would loosen the belt causing it to slip and I’d have to keep pulling it up and the hook wasn’t very sturdy if the other dog pulled backwards their leashes would come off the belt. With the tuff mutt they are so much more secure, the belt stays in place and they can’t pull as much nor do I feel it as much. I highly recommend this belt, I am so happy I found them and switched it makes a world of difference on our runs!

    I absolutely love this leash ! The delivery was extremely fast to Ontario and when I opened the package I was extremely impressed with the very obvious quality materials used. I love the two different leash handles to enable close contact control such as in an elevator and the regular loop end for arms length control to give my dog Bruce more freedom. We haven’t used the leash for running yet due to very deep snow but we’ve already used it for hiking and it works exactly as described. I DON’T feel like I’ll be pulled off my feet with the force of an 80lb, 8 month golden retriever at the other end! The leash does have some elasticity but it’s not overly exaggerated. If you’re only used to a regular firm leash it will take minimal time to adjust. Looking forward to the snow melting and testing out the running aspect! I did a lot of research on “running leashes” and the Tuff Mutt leash was ranked highest on all articles I read. Lastly all Inquiries I sent to Tuff Mutt were very quickly replied to…excellent customer service!

    I bought hands free bungee leash and the tuff mutt harness for my 47# Vizsla Talia Rose and I. Best early xmas present ever. I really like that there is a front clip and back clip option. The harness is the first I’ve found that Talia doesn’t pull and she has not gotten any rub marks under her arms. I like the two handles on the bungee leash. WE will enjoy may hours and miles of running.

    I purchased this leash for walking with my blue heeler (55lbs). I love that it frees up my hands and the handles make it easy to gain some extra control when I need it. The belt lets the leash move easily around my waist. Great value!

    I take my 80 lb. greyhound/GSD mix for hikes and runs with this lead and on our very first run he was falling in beside me after only a minute and also got the hang of dropping back behind me to cross sides when we changed directions or crossed the sides of streets. The bungee section really makes this lead, too, as it is has enough give to absorb any force of pulling and not too much give as to encourage pulling. The materials seem high quality and the flexibility of detaching the lead from the waist band and using the loop as a handle for its own lead are the icing on the cake.

    I found this leash when I started training for a 5k with my pup and I absolutely love it.

    It’s perfect for running and hiking. I was starting to hurt my shoulder holding the leash while running, and this fixed that. The bungee part has a nice give so if my dog bursts out in front neither of us get yanked.

    Just this morning I took a bit of a fall after tripping. It was fantastic to not have to worry about holding on to the leash and knowing I could just worry about catching myself.

    I highly recommend this product.

    I saw this leash at the dog park and immediately came home and ordered one for my pup Floyd. We haven’t gone running yet but the leash is very helpful on walk because he can’t lunge as much (we’re working on this!) The shipping was quick and included a hand written note from Paul which was a nice touch. 🙂

    so far so good!!!..the leash is doing exactly what I need it to do..keeps my arms free while we run..and it is super easy to switch sides when needed, the bungee is strong enough to give but doesn’t allow my little 38 lb. heeler get to crazy when she sees a rabbit!!..It works for running, no doubt..I’m using it with a Tuff Mutt harness also

    This leash is awesome! We bought one several months ago for my husband to use with 2 of our larger dogs while running. He loves it, so we just bought another one to give as a gift. It is made of quality material and is very durable. He uses it for 2 55 lb. dogs at the same time and likes to be able to grab the small handle up top to be able to slow them when needed. Definitely a great purchase!

    I have a 42 lb husky mix and we go hiking several times a week. This leash has made our hikes easier and more enjoyable. Her pulling on a regular leash used to be a problem but the hands free leash has solved that.

    Leash is perfect! We use it several days a week for short 2 mile runs with our year old golden retriever. Some of my favorite features are the hands free ability and the fact that it allows for her to be in front, beside or behind me without the leash tangling up.

    I would highly recommend to any runner with an active pup!

    Fantastic leash! I’ve been a dog owner for 20 years and this is absolutely the best leash I’ve ever had. The two hand holders are perfectly placed and don’t hurt my hand when my dog pulls. The bungy is strong and effective and my 85lb very fit (!) dog gets bounced back and not me! There’s a perfect loop to tie poop bags. Worth every penny. Thank you Tuff Mutt for designing a leash that handles every dog walking issue.

    This is a really nice product. We do a lot of hiking and this is working really well with our dog. It leaves both arms free, which helps keep your body in balance when hiking through varied terrain, yet it has two handles that are easy to grab if you need to rein in your dog. The length is sufficient for a taller person with a long stride.

    This leash works great for my dog. She’s a young husky mix from a sled dog line, so she loves to run. I’ve run on clean pavement as well as snow-ice covered pavement, and haven’t had any issues with her pulling me off my feet. Durable so far, and the two handles are great when we have to pass by people or other dogs. I picked up two of the leashes, and I’m a fan so far!

    I purchased this leash for traveling with my 110 pound German Shepherd. I am so glad I made the purchase! It is very easy to put on and take off both for me and my dog – so important in the varying light conditions and chaos of travel. It has some unique features such as the slightly stretchy leash part prevents abrupt jerks when do you and your dog are out of sync. There is a ring on the waist belt, this allows your dog to make a circle around you without pulling on your belt. The hand holds on the leash are the perfect size to easily slip your hand in even if you’re wearing gloves or mittens. I often wear it under a tunic top, attached to my dog with his service harness on, and it is almost invisible . It’s the perfect length and the two handholds allow you to keep your dog a little distant or very close. We have used this 100s of times since my purchase 6 months ago, after cleaning it still looks brand-new and both my dog and I are pleased with this purchase.

    Walking our dogs has been completely changed by this leash. Really looking forward to running with them as well. The belt and lead are both secure and it is so much easier to handle our pups using the Tuff Mutt hands free leash. Try it! You’ll like it!

    I’ve used this for 1 run, and 5 walks with a stroller. Our Vizsla usually likes to pull when running, so I was expecting to have to spend a few weeks training him to run next to me. It only took a few minutes! He also walks better while using this leash next to the stroller than with a traditional leash. The lease is high quality, and the bungie area is stronger than I expected, which makes it feel very secure. We may have just gotten lucky, but this leash is working out great for us from the get go.

    I love this leash. I have a small Staffordshire terrier, who, though she is small, is very mighty! I have run with her with a standard leash looped around my waist. This was very uncomfortable, as she pulled so hard that she squeezed my middle mercilessly! with this leash, she pulls, and I don’t feel it nearly as much. I wear it farther down on my hips, and though it can ride up a bit, this is a much more comfortable solution to having my guts squeezed out by a hyperactive pooch. The bungee action seems to reduce the effect of her lunging and the emergency handles on the leash have come in handy more than once when I feel the need to have her closer to me. I have tried several products for walking strong dogs that pull, and this product is highly recommended.

    We love this leash! We have used it for 3- 1.5 mile runs so far with our 1 year old golden retriever. I am a small female and I do not feel that the leash is too bulky, it actually just feels very secure. The two loop holes are especially useful for when we see other dogs or people- I know I have total control within an arm’s reach. The length is perfect as well, it gives enough space for my dog to run either in front of or beside me without crowding each other. I love the hands free design and also use this just for normal hands-free walks. I found it also helps with my dog being a puller, because the bungee has a little bit of resistance to pull him back and after a couple tugs he stops pulling. I have always wanted to take a dog running with me, and this is the perfect accessory for that! Thank you!

    This leash is great for running with your pup. There is a little give so it does not pull and has handles to help you find a comfortable position to hold. His is good as back up when your running buddy sees a squirrel and wants to chance after it. It can click onto a belt to become hands free, which is great for trail running. When we get to area where she can be off leash, I have her carry it around her neck (see photo). It is comfortable to wear as not to heavy. The tuff mutt leash is durable. Macy is a chewer, but no signs of biting on this leash!

    I live by a park where there’s a heavy fine for walking sans leash. I’m usually out with my dog plus a baby in a stroller (and frequently a phone in my hand). I hate tying holding the leash in my hand (because I only have 2!) and I don’t like tying it to the stroller either because he’s a big strong dog and it makes me nervous! So this leash belt really works for me! I would highly recommend it to anyone who walks the dog with a stroller. My husband and I use it every time we go out with him now.

Here is some pup-ular information about your purchase that you may find useful:

1. How do I actually wear this leash?
It’s very easy and simple to use. You will notice two parts – the adjustable belt and the bungee leash. Adjust the belt to comfortably fit your waist. We find it best to wear a little bit loose and let it ride on your hips. Next, attach the sliding belt clip to the D-ring of the bungee leash. That’s it! You are ready to hit the trails.

2. What’s the best way to get started with my dog?
Honestly, you know your dog best. If you have never used a leash like this, we recommend starting out slowly with a walk in the backyard or around the block, so that you and your dog can get used to the length and tension of the leash. As you both feel comfortable, then you can begin to walk, hike and run longer distances. The more you use it the more you will love it.

3. Are the knots really supposed to be part of the leash?
Yes! We get this question a lot. They are mainly there for an extra place to grab the leash in a quick moment, but they just kind of make it look cool too! You can undo them if you prefer, but your leash will be a bit longer and we really don’t recommend it.

4. What can I do to keep the belt from loosening?
Again, we recommend wearing the belt loosely, but if you are finding that your dog is pulling the belt loose, we have a solution that many customers overlook. You will notice a small black sliding ring on your belt. Once you have your belt to the appropriate size, push the slider ring tightly next to the black belt adjustor. You are going to want to push it over all layers of the belt and this will keep the belt from loosening.
