Questions & Answers

16 Customer Questions

Is the position of the leash on the belt adjustable? In other words, does it slide on the waist belt to allow the dog to move a bit?
Answer by ChewyMar 10, 2021
Both the belt and leash are adjustable. The belt can fit a waist girth between 31 – 53 inches and the leash length can be adjusted between 31 – 54 inches.

what is a fuzzy belt hook. Doesn’t sound secure
Answer by ChewyJun 12, 2019
The waist belt features a Velcro closure, or fuzzy fastener, for a quick and safe release, if/when needed.

Does the D ring float or is it fixed?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2022
The D-ring on this leash is sewn into place, so it is fixed and does not float.

I don’t see anything designating how wide this belt is. I see the length but what is the width: 1/2”, 5/8”, an inch?
Answer by ChewyNov 06, 2021
The belt is 1 inch wide and the leash is ¾ of an inch wide.

Wish I ordered this years ago!

This makes walking so enjoyable now. With my hands free I can finally get a good walk or jog in using both arms simultaneously, no more still shoulder or neck when I'm done. The leash is easy to grab if my dog needs guidance and adjusts easily for length. (It would be nice if it came in an option for a thinner leash for lighter weight for smaller dogs though but it works for my 10lb Havanese.) The belt is comfortable and easily adjustable from 30-58". The reviews that say it will not adjust to small or large waist sizes apparently missed that both belt sections adjust.

I have been very on and off about getting a hands free leash but now that I’ve got one, I’m never going back to a regular leash on my morning and evening walks. I have a 60 pound dog and it works wonders for him. Now I won’t recommend for someone that has a dog that pulls them all around with a normal leash, but I’ve put in my time to get my dog walking really good with a normal leash (the occasional squirrel still gets us lol) but I really feel like this hands free leash will get us even closer to my goal of being able to walk without a leash. I really like that the leash goes from about four feet all the way to six feet so when we are on sidewalks I can keep my pup close and when out on trails he can have a little more freedom. The belt part is also very accommodating for dog parents of all sizes, it have two different adjustable areas one doesn’t get it very big but the second one makes it so that it can go almost if not more then the length of the leash

This product the leash is nice and perfect length but the waist band is not big enough to fit around woman's waist with wide hips. I littlerly had to put it up under my boobs to fit, clearly not what expected. It says it would expand to larger size but nothing on it is adjustable to make it big enough. It would fit maybe a small child's waist not and adult. Said would expand to 58 in waist. It only goes as big as 38. That is not hooked closed, around waist. I could only fit it up under my breast line not my waist. My waist line is closer to 40 in, So once this is closed with the Velcro it's closer to 34in. Do not recommend unless you have a waist line under 30 in.

easy hands free leash

This is the easiest hands free leash I’ve used. I have a 35 lb pit mix that I take to work sometimes and needed a hands free leash. She hasn’t had any issue getting used to it. She tends to pull so I wouldn’t use this in situations where she has a lot of things she wants to chase after. Because it goes around your waist you need to anticipate your dog pulling so they don’t pull you off balance.

Does the trick

I needed to be handsfree on my walks. This leash does the trick. A couple times he has pulled when he seen a dog, and the Velcro Did not come apart. Thinner than my normal leash but thats ok too. Lets my hands free to carry weights.

Great Hands free

I wish there was a little more length ability as I have a long stride and the pups and I were use to a longer extension, we aren't running though so maybe for runners it's the perfect length. Once adjusted to your waist, it's easy and seems like it will work well for the long haul. It swivels around easily enough when the pup gets ahead/behind/or sideways. I liked it so much I gifted one to my friend who just had shoulder surgery so she could still get out!

So convenient

So far I have only used it less than 10x but it makes life so much easier. Though, owners be aware that your dog needs to be trained to heel. Otherwise, you will go flying when your dog pulls, it happened to me once. But I definitely recommend this. The leash is actually detachable and can be attached to a backpack also.

Width not accurate

Love the idea of it. Hands free! But it certainly doesn’t measure 54 inches around the waist. Much shorter. Had to reconfigure to make it work.

Worked great

Great now that the cold weather is moving in. Lets me keep my hands in my pockets or hold my hot drink while I walk my dog. It’s a shame I lost the belt part. It was great though!

Not for a dog that pulls

I hook this around my hips for more support. It just fits. I wish I had just a little more room to push it down further on my hips. I can run with my dog. I would not recommend this for a dog that pulls.
