I wanted to love it
by NGP (3 out of 5 stars)

This leash system is well made and easy to use, so 3 stars, but it doesn't work for me.

Here's why:
1. I prefer to wear pants, etc. more around my hips than at my true waist. No matter what I did, this moves up to my waist or felt like it was going to slide off. I felt like it was pulling on my middle pretty awkwardly.
2. The stretchy potion (the actual leash) is heavy and bounced a LOT.
3. My old system was better... I run with a Flip Belt to hold phone and stuff; I use a much lighter weight leash (without the stretch) and clip it onto the Flip Belt with a carabiner. I can position the belt where I want and then the stretchiness in the belt provides some give if my dog tries to pull.
4. The positioning of the belt gets in the way of my arm swing, since it rides so high on my waist.

I am small and my dog is about half the weight of me, so that might have something to do with the pulling-awkwardness. I will update my review if my husband has success with it!

Great hands free leash
by unrealii (5 out of 5 stars)
December 30, 2017

Great hands free leash! I highly recommend this, especially if you are a runner. Do not run with a handheld leash!! I ruined my running form by running while holding the leash in my right hand. My left knee and right foot began hurting because of the off balance form that I accumulated over years of running with a handheld leash.

Few tips:
1) adjust the loop so that it is near the buckle. Makes clipping and unclipping easier
2) if the dog shakes while running, grab the leash otherwise it might slap you in the jewels

Worth the bucks
by Meri (5 out of 5 stars)

Really enjoying this product so far. I had previously bought a leash similar to this one but it was WAY too long since my dog stays close on my hip. The leash length on this one is I believe 34" long and is perfect....my pup still has wiggle room but she's not tripping over the slack! The bungee is pretty heavy so runners bear this in mind....I typically hike with my dog most of the time so the heaviness of the bungee doesnt bug me. And the hands free is really great when we're trekking up steep hills. The waistband is adjustable and doesn't move around too much. I do wish this had a handle, but I'm overall very pleased with this product! Highly recommend for my active dog parents!

LIGHTWEIGHT AND VERY WELL MADE
by Gaby castillo (5 out of 5 stars)

I purchased this back in Sept 2014. I use it 3-5 times a week for 2-5 mile runs for two 65lb pit bull mixes (i attached another leash to the waist part). My fur kids are pretty well trained on leash but they've put it through a fair amount of pulling (sometimes they both pull in different directions) but my leash is still going strong!

It's SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT ( I previously had the boots and barkley target brand and it wasnt nearly as light as this one, really makes a huge difference). It's also really easy to pull your dog close with the loop that is near the bottom. Hands down worth every penny.

Best Leash
by James,Top Contributor: Makeup (5 out of 5 stars)

This is my all time favorite leash and I use it whether we're jogging or not. My dog is 30 pounds and I have a shoulder injury that gets easily aggravated, so this allows us to go for walks without worry. If I need to keep him close, the loop nearest his collar helps me keep him at my heel. The bungee has taught him how far he can wander without choking himself, as eager dogs tend to do. The waist is difficult to adjust which also means it stays in place when you get it to the size you want. I've had this in regular use for four years and it's still in great shape. I don't know how long the belt is, but I know that it doesn't fit around every waist size so beware.

It's not perfect, but I love it because it leaves my ...
by Shanna Rumburg (4 out of 5 stars)

I've been using this leash with my dog for a month now, going on two runs per week. It's not perfect, but I love it because it leaves my hands free. It took a bit of adjusting to get it right. I'm 5'6" (with short legs) and I have an Australian Shepherd, so the elastic part was too long for us. My husband solved it with folding a section of it up and securing it with a zip tie. Works just fine, but would be nice if it that part was adjustable. I do find it annoying that it turns around my waist and then the elastic part that hangs down to attach to the the dog hits the front of my leg as I'm running. So I'm constantly pulling it back in place. It's probably because my dog likes to be just a tiny bit ahead of me no matter how many times I correct her! Or maybe I need to make it tighter around my waist? Not sure.

I'm quite happy with the quality. The material is very sturdy and the clasps are made of metal. I saw some reviews saying the elastic wore out quickly. My dog isn't a puller, so I can't speak for that. I would expect any elastic to give out if you let your dog pull on it constantly.

This is pricey for a dog leash, but I'm quite happy with my purchase and would do it again!

If you run with your dog, buy this leash! You won't regret it!
by Jess S (5 out of 5 stars)

I was very hesitant to buy this leash after reading some of the negative reviews (leash too short, low quality hardware, etc), but I saw it listed on sale and figured I would take a chance. I take my lab running a few times a week, and previously, I had always used a retractable leash. My two-year-old lab always ends up pulling at the end of the leash, even with a no-pull harness on, and it would really annoy me when we were out running and my arm and back would get sore from trying to rein her in! I also started developing a hip injury due to the asymmetrical torque she was putting on my torso, so had to keep switching the leash from hand to hand.

I had seen other people using hands-free leashes, but I never bothered to get one before because I couldn't imagine they would make enough of a difference to buy a whole new leash. After one run with this hands-free leash, I will never run again without it! I hardly noticed my dog pulling, partly because she was slightly less inclined to pull with this leash (I think due to the bungee and the shortness of it), and partly because when she did pull, it was from a natural position on my body. Yes, the leash is pretty short, but I found that my (medium-sized, 60 pound lab) could run in front of me with no problem. If you pay attention to your running form and make sure your feet land underneath your body instead of in front of it (which can do horrible things to your knees over time), this leash will probably be plenty long. And I'm not sure what other reviewers meant about the hardware on the leash, because it seems to be very sturdy to me. I'm so happy because I actually look forward to running with my pup now!

Excellent for giant dogs!
by B. Borkent (4 out of 5 stars)

Overall, the product is great, but I find the elastic a little too stretchy when I need quick control of my Great Dane. It has a lot of give and she's heavier than me, but I've never felt out of control or worried about the material strength, it's very sturdy! We've been running with it for a few months now and haven't seen any kind of deterioration or wear. The leash is a bit awkwardly long for such a tall dog, so I wrap the leash around the belt a couple of times to take up slack, but it's not the most comfortable way to wear it. I wish there were some different leash lengths to choose from. Other than that, it's really good and I'm loving the hands-free running life!!

Best option for me
by Ashlynn09 (4 out of 5 stars)

The Stunt Puppy hands-free leash solved the issue of having to hold a leash while jogging with my dog. I've been using it for the past few months and it's held up very well-even with some big lunges at squirrels. The bungee cord eliminates much of the shock, and what's left over is absorbed into my core. That being said, if your dog isn't well behaved on a leash, constantly being tugged against defeats the purpose of going hands free. instead of your shoulder being wrenched, your hips and spine suffer. I would not recommend this for someone who is first training their dog to walk on a leash or one that doesn't behave well.

Some reviewers have commented the leash being too long or too short as their dog cuts in front of them. I have found this to be true as well - though through no fault of the product. I feel I need to better train my dog to trot beside me, instead of letting her go ahead of me.

All in all, I'm happy with this leash and would recommend it to anyone looking for a hands-free unit, whether for walking, jogging, or running, provided you are comfortable with your dog's tethered behavior.
(I'm a 120lb female with a 70lb lab/pit bull mix, for size reference.)

Update: 1 year later
by writeturnonred (4 out of 5 stars)

My dog is about 60lbs of lovable, energetic mutt and he seemed comfortable running with it in his ComfortFlex Harness the past few days. (Will update if anything fails over time, but the material seems quite durable, and the clips seems okay - my only real concern is the plastic buckle on the belt.) The "traffic loop" came in handy a few times when I had to reel him in at stoplights, etc., but after going once around the block, my dog seemed to understand how the bungee worked and would pull until he felt some resistance, but not making the leash completely straight. A few times, he stopped short or lunged after robins, and most of those I was able to correct him quickly - but the two times that I didn't catch him definitely did not feel great on my back. The belt part could be a slightly less slick material so it wouldn't move around quite as much on the waist. Overall, it does what it's supposed to and is quite comfortable, so far has proven to be as strong and durable as promised.

Update: After about a year of frequent use, it's holding up pretty well. Our dog put a large gash in the outer lining (he grabbed the leash mid-run and shook it), but didn't puncture the elastic so it's still going strong (we're just more careful not to get it wet now, since we don't want water or mud trapped INSIDE the leash). The hardware is also holding up, though covered in scratches (the black looks nice for a while, and then it just doesn't, but you can't much tell unless you're up close).
