Frequently Asked Questions
Should my dog wear a collar or a harness while using the leash?
The Mighty Paw BungeeX2 Leash can be used with either your dogs’ collar or harness. Using a harness may result in better control.
What waist size does it fit?
The Mighty Paw Bungee Leash belt fits waist sizes 26” – 42”.
Why are there two "D" rings?
The Mighty Paw Bungee Leash is equipped with two “D” rings for your convenience. One “D” ring will attach the belt to the bungee. The other “D” ring can be used to hold keys, a poop bag, or even a second bungee for another dog.
Which end of the bungee connects to the belt?
The Mighty Paw Bungee Leash contains a built-in loop at one end of the bungee. We suggest this loop is located closest to your dogs’ collar or harness in order for a hand-held point of control if needed.
What size dogs does the leash accommodate?
The Mighty Paw Bungee Leash accommodates all breeds weighing between 30-100 lbs.
Does my dog have to be trained to use the leash?
No, your dog does not have to be trained to use the Mighty Paw Bungee Leash. The leash itself is a great training tool.
How do I begin to use the leash with my dog?
When using the Mighty Paw Bungee Leash for the first time, always start out by walking. Do not advance to running until you and your dog are comfortable and safe.
Where should my dog walk in relationship to me?
Your dog should stay at your side for the duration of the walk while using the Mighty Paw Bungee Leash. If your dog is walking in front of you, this could potentially cause a problem/collision.
How do I train my dog to walk at my side?
To train your dog to walk by your side, shorten the length of the Mighty Paw Bungee Leash by rotating the belt around your back so that the bungee attachment “D” ring is sitting on your hip that is opposite to your dog. Shortening the leash will limit the tendency for the dog to walk in front of you and will help train your dog to walk at your side. Give lots of praise as your dog walks along beside you. Gradually, allow more freedom.
What activities can I do with my dog and the hands-free leash?
The Mighty Paw Bungee Leash can be used for physical activities such as walking, running, and hiking with your dog. It can also be used around the house on appropriate occasions when needed (repairmen, maintenance workers, contractors, etc.). This leash has been effectively used at dog-friendly restaurants as well, hooking around the legs of a table to allow a certain radius of freedom while owners (and dog) dine.
