What is the Dog-Safe Hands-Free Leash?
The Dog-Safe Hands-Free Leash is a new type of dog leash. It has two components, a leash and an adjustable belt that you wear around your hips.

How does the Dog-Safe Hands-Free Leash work?
The leash securely attaches to a belt that goes around your hips so that you don't have to worry about losing your grip on the leash - your hips provide a very secure and stable anchoring point. The length of the leash is quickly adjustable "on the fly" to 2, 3, 4, or 6 feet (0.6, 0.9, 1.2, or 1.8 m). The leash always remains securely attached to the belt while you are adjusting length. The leash also has a standard hand-grip loop for use without the belt.

Can I walk multiple dogs with the Dog-Safe Hands-Free Leash?
Yes, multiple dogs can be walked by adding leash couplers. These can be purchased in most pet stores.

Are the belts available in different sizes?
Yes, they are available in three sizes and each size is adjustable to exactly fit your hips. The length of the SMALL belt is adjustable from 25 to 40 inches (64 to 102 cm), the length of the MEDIUM belt is adjustable from 30 to 50 inches (76 to 127 cm), and the length of the LARGE belt is adjustable from 35 to 60 inches (89 to 152 cm).

How do I choose a belt that will fit correctly?
Since the belt is worn over clothing and is typically worn lower on the hips than a normal belt, you should add at least 2 or 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) to your normal waist size to calculate the correct belt size. Our most popular sizes are MEDIUM and LARGE. If your required size is between 35 and 40 inches (89 to 102 cm) then we recommend the MEDIUM instead of the SMALL. If your required size is between 45 and 50 inches (114 to 127 cm) then we recommend the LARGE instead of the MEDIUM.

Are the leashes available in different sizes?
Yes, they are available in two sizes. The STANDARD leash is 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide and is adjustable to 2, 3, 4, or 6 feet (0.6, 0.9, 1.2, or 1.8 m), The SMALL-DOG leash is 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) wide and is adjustable to 3, 4, or 6 feet (0.9, 1.2, or 1.8 m). The SMALL-DOG leash is recommended for dogs under 15 lbs (7 kg) only.
