Run, hike, or walk your BFF with a blissful mix of control AND freedom. The Tuff Mutt Hands Free Bungee Dog Leash attaches at your waist and expands from 48 inches to 60 inches so your dog can safely chase squirrels and sniff bushes without dragging you along when he hits the brakes and changes direction. The “bounce” in the bungee “springs” your dog back to you and the sliding metal clip lets your dog change direction without tripping you. Two control handles give you the option to bring your dog close in crowds. Best for medium and large dogs up to 100 pounds.
48 inch hands free bungee leash expands to 60 inches so your dog can safely explore.
Lightweight belt with leash clip is adjustable and comfortable to wear.
Moveable belt clip slides back and forth so your dog can change direction without tripping.
Two control handles let you pull your dog in close in crowds.
Reflective fabric on both the belt and length of the leash keeps you and your dog visible after dark.
Don’t buy this leash unless you want your clothes ruined
on Sep 6, 2021
Great idea, poor execution. The branding tags that have been sewn onto the interior and exterior of the leash are so sharp and rough that I have now had two articles of clothing ruined by wearing it. Spandex? It will pick. Knits? It will pick. Apparently, only crappy sweats survive and, let’s be honest, more often than not, I am throwing the leash on after a day of work, wearing normal clothes.
Great Hands free Leash

I used this with my ten lb dog and later with my 70lb good boy. The latter surprised me as to how well he walked on this. It was towards the end of a hike so he was tired but he did not pull at all. My dogs don't pull too much anyway and they have martingale collars which I like for the pressure feedback. Not sure how this would be if your dog is a strong puller. But if you want to be handsfree I really like this.
Not for us
on Jul 7, 2021
Well made but this does not work for us. Having hardware on my hip and on his back is heavy and floppy. I thought I would like that the leash travels along my waste but it's a disaster. He can tell he has freedom of movement and he goes behind me, switches sides, he's all over the place. And I think the bungee encourages him to pull cause he feels the give. Definitely have to return. I just loop a rope leash around my waste and it's been perfect for us.

Loved this for the three months it worked. Now the clip to dog collar is broken with no way to replace it. v. disappointed at having essentially purchased trash.
FYI the bungee is very strong, so not ideal for smaller dogs.
Get the ruffwear one, its better.
Good Hands free option

I do like this leash and this is actually the second one I had to buy. The hook on the first one broke. That is the only downside.
Should have gotten sooner

What a difference walking my 55 pound 15 month old Aussiedoodle!
She loved yanking my arm off but doesn’t pull with this leash.
Much more control using core instead of arm and shoulder.
Only Lasted A Week
on May 23, 2021
The product was great while it lasted! But my leash only lasted a week. I put the leash on my dog, was gone for about 10 seconds grabbing his treat bag, and when I came back he had chewed right through the leash. Before that, I had no problems with the leash. But pretty disappointed my dog could chew threw it so quickly. He's chewed on other leashes before and had no problems.
Belt unclipped while I was walking
on May 10, 2021
I bought this to go running with my dog and it was working great until yesterday. We were going on a walk luckily and not a run because the belt just unclipped. I had a hold of the leash so my dog stayed by me but I live in a busy city and if I hadn’t been holding onto that leash she could’ve been hit by car. Im pretty upset because normally we go on pretty fast runs where I don’t hold the leash. I know it wasn’t clipped wrong because when I wasn’t holding the leash and she pulled it stopped, the belt was fine.

The leash itself is great but the waist latch is not secure at all. The first chipmunk my dog saw she was off - clip totally unclipped and she was off into the woods :/
Good, but leash a little short
on Apr 19, 2021
I love this leash, but it has one shortcoming (literally). The leash unstretched is only 48”. I’m 6’2” and when my golden walks casually directly in front of me, I constantly have to stop or sidestep to avoid stepping on his rear leg. If he’s pulling, the leash stretches and it’s fine. It just needs another 4”-6” unstretched to eliminate the problem.
My other hands free leash has a 60” unstretched leash which avoids the problem, but the elastic in the bungee is too weak, and doesn’t have the free-moving attachment ring. I wish the leash on this was just a little longer.
