      Comments about Buddy System Pet Leash Buddy System Hands Free Leash:

      I use the Buddy System when training new puppies and Service Dogs. The ability to unhook from the dog without having to remove the part of the leash attached to me allows me to walk short distances away while dog is settling on a mat and easily reconnect the dog when he wanders off (i.e. a puppy still not fully housebroken). Great for loose leash walking as I can be hands free (easier to use click and treat delivery). This leash is well constructed, durable and an excellent training tool! I find there is less tendency for the puppy to chew and play tug compared to a conventional leash.

      Comments about Buddy System Pet Leash Buddy System Hands Free Leash:

      I would like the leash a little shorter. I like to keep my dog right next to me. So I still found myself having to grab the leash to bring him closer. Quality not great. At least not for my dog a young black lab that is strong. I feel like it could break.

          THis product is fantastic. I use it with the Halti to keep my hyper dog from pulling and can finally have an enjoyable hike or walk without wearing out my shoulder. Can use both hiking poles when hiking and also use them for walking for a better workout.

            This product should only be used by someone with a well trained dog or a smaller dog. If the animal is not well trained, you might end up face down in the dirt or street!

              Comments about Buddy System Pet Leash Buddy System Hands Free Leash:

              I LOVE this leash! I use it with a no pull harness for dogs that pull (leash attaches at the chest), and my dog now HEELS!! I use this for both walking and running with my dog. We often go on long hikes and runs and holding a leash was very tiring and if you had to do something using both hands (like drinking from a bottle), you risked getting your arm yanked all over the place, and very wet. This is great because if the dog pulls it's against your core, not your arm. It might make you hesitate a moment, but no more getting yanked around!! It's also comfortable when wearing a fanny pack, a water pack and a backpack (as long as it doesn't come down past your hips). I love the flexibility of the leash connection options. Also, if you have to tie your dog for a short time, this is super easy to take off and connect around something stationary.

                      I have a feisty little dog who LOVES to go hiking on mountain trails with me. The harness and hands free leash system means that I can keep her under control but also have my hands free to use a hiking pole, etc. This has definitely increased our frequency of going out for hikes--we both love it.

                        I LOVE my Buddy System leash.. I am not a runner because I can take my best friend with me..

                        I laugh when I see people running, walking, hiking using a leash that pulls their arm and shoulder out of wack.

                        This is one of the best products I have used for a long time. No brainer!!
