I have a black dog one, have had it for years... Its good when I walk to the shops and need my hands free... it's also good when I'm walking more than two dogs and need hands for each of them... but I like to hold the leash in my hand personally... oh but they are great for jogging... I always use it when I take one dog only for a jog...
i hate having to have pockets when im walking!
also want to start running with my pup but need to do it without holding her leash because she thinks its a game and trys to jump all over me
So they are a belt you attach the lead to?
I can think of cheaper ways to get the same result.
Could you please post a picture of one as I have never heard of them.
if you click on the link you can see what they look like
not really a belt you attach the lead to, but you can do that if you want
it holds a tennis ball, poo bags, ipod, has a pocket to put keys/money/phone/treats it
Mine is like a belt, and it has clips on either side to attach your dog too... I originally got it for training when teaching the down.. I found it easier without a lead... and also heeling no tugging on the lead if you dont have one... and yes there are cheaper ways to achieve the same thing... I think I paid about $10 for mine, but that about 15 years ago...
Mine broke the first time I attached the dog to it, she pulled (not even very hard) and the seam came apart. They also come with a warning that they are not made to have the dog attached to them.
If you want something for hands free walks/training/jogging then these are better
Dog Collars & Dog Leads by Black Dog - Home (ETA Sorry that takes you to the home page, if you click shopping, then human stuff and scroll down their is a hands free training belt)
Only a tad more expensive but are specifically made for to have your dog attached to them. I have one and have been using it for 3 - 4 months now and it is fantastic, I walk two big dogs (30+kilos) and it has held up perfect. I then just use a treat pouch with pockets to store keys/money in.
I usually just hook Ruby's lead in the ring of my shorts, as in where a belt should be. If I am wearing those shorts that is lol
