Item Purchased: Ruffwear Flat Out Dog Leash
Rating: “Great running leash!” 5 out of 5 stars!
Review: “Overall, I really like this leash for hands-free running with my dog! The buckle that creates the handle loop at the person end of the leash is very secure, to the point that it’s difficult for me to open – I usually choose to just step into the loop and then tighten it around my waist/hips. Speaking of the handle loop, it is very well padded.
My one complaint is that when my dog runs directly in front of me at the end of the leash, I don’t have quite enough room for a full running stride – only a problem because my dog is a big puller. When he runs a little bit off to the side, it’s not a problem at all. I have both this Flat Out leash and the Ruffwear Roamer leash but prefer this one because it provides a little more control over my rowdy dog. It was a little too easy for him to run into traffic with the Roamer!
Some background for those wondering if this leash will be long enough for them: I like to wear the leash around my hips. I’m about 5’4″ tall and about 32″ around my hips where I like the leash to go. My dog is about 22″ tall at the shoulder, but he wears a front-clip harness so the leash attaches around 16-17″ off the ground. I could use an extra inch or two of the leash to avoid kicking his heels when he darts in front of me!
Despite this minor complaint, the leash seems sturdy and the baja blue color looks great. It’s my new favorite running accessory!”
