The Hands-Free Leash Helps Match Veterans With Service Dogs

Let’s face it, some dogs do not have the best leash etiquette. Whether they pull ahead, lag behind or twist around in search of tantalizing odors, they can do a number on your neck, back and shoulders.

A Hands Free Bungee Leash could be the answer to your dog walking troubles. The lead attaches to a sturdy belt that fits comfortably around your waist, utilizing your powerful core rather than your extremities.

The leash measures 47 1/2″ relaxed to keep your dog safely by your side while the shock-absorbing bungee segment provides an extra element of safety for you and your furry friend. Should your pooch catch sight of a squirrel and make a run for it, the force is absorbed by the lead rather than your back or your pup’s neck!

Whether you enjoy a casual stroll, a light jog or a full-on run, the leash keeps your pooch securely by your side and your hands free to pump up your speed! It’s also a great pick for parents, letting you push the stroller while keeping your dog safely secured.

Should you need to get your dog’s attention or gain a bit more control, the bungee lead has a built-in handle at either end.

Where the Hands Free Bungee Dog Leash really sets itself apart is its power to help America’s military veterans. As many as 20% of veterans returning from service suffer from PTSD, while others live with physical and emotional injuries that make it difficult to transition back to day-to-day life.

iHeartDogs has partnered with GreaterGood.org to create the Pets & Vets Program. Each purchase of a Hands Free Bungee Leash in Army Green provides funding to organizations that pair service dogs with deserving veterans. The incredible impact these animals have on the lives of our vets is undeniable and so rewarding to be a part of.
