I have always wanted a hands free leash! Always. I just have never taken the plunge and bought one. I love running with my dog when I can (I ran with Tristan a lot more before he got old). I still run with him occasionally on shorter runs (and mostly when I’m not pregnant!).

When the opportunity arose to try the Stunt Runner leash by Stunt Puppy, I was very excited! Then, the leash came in the mail and Colorado got hit by snow storm after snow storm after snow storm and my only days off between jobs were freezing or snowy. Finally, this past week, I got to give this hands-free leash a whirl!

For Running:
Going hands-free with the dog while running was a huge difference! When you have a normal leash, no matter what you do, you can’t run with your normal form when you hold the leash. To get a close to normal arm swing, you need a ton of slack in a normal leash and thus create a tripping hazard for you and your dog. With the Stunt Runner, you can still take your dog for a run with you and run exactly as you do by yourself! It was amazing!

For Walks:
Even taking my dog for a walk with the hands-free leash was a lot more convenient than a normal leash. Especially on cold days, I can still put my hands in my pockets easier with the Stunt Runner plus I am able to access my phone and do other things without having to worry about dropping the leash!

Leash Details:
-Bungee Style Connection (to stretch and allow variations in stride)
-Adjustable Waist Belt (ya know, great for when your belly grows because you’re pregnant!)
-Adjustable Leash Length (To keep your running buddy at just the right length)
-Made with tubular webbing, back tar stitching, Stunt Puppy Alpha™ hardware, and Duraflex® buckles (the same stuff firefighters gear and climbing gear is made out of. i.e. super strong and lightweight.)
-Floating D-Right On the Waist Belt (this moves around as the dog moves around so there’s no tugging on your waist.)
-A static portion (for an emergency grab handle)

Overall
When I first started using it, I had to retrain my dog to watch out for my feet. With a normal leash, I could easily move my hand around to keep him at the exact spot I needed him. With the leash runner, the flexible, bungee part makes it so your dog doesn’t yank you around when your stride changes (this is a positive, but takes some getting used to). The hard part of this is that you have to make sure your dog doesn’t get too close to you. Now that I’m used to the leash and know exactly where to grab for the static portion, I’m getting used to adjusting my dog if he gets too close to me.

The leash was everything I wanted in a hands-free leash and more. Not only did it make my jogs and walks way more convenient, but it also exceeded my standards by being made from very durable material and the adjustability. I highly recommend this leash for people that want to run with their dog!
