Running with Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Iron Doggy

Iron Doggy isn’t just my favorite running leash. It’s my favorite parenting leash, photography leash and adventure leash. If you’re looking for the ultimate hands-free leash, I can’t recommend Iron Doggy highly enough. Ours has been battled teste for years and still looks and works great.

I recommend reading both of the product page descriptions to figure which leash will best suit your needs. If you have any questions about choosing, let me know!

  1. Love your site; I’ve been running w/Ridgebacks since 1996 (5 awesome RRs). For my current pair, I was thinking about moving over to a harness v. the martingale collars I’ve always used. Be interested in your perspective.

    • Thanks! Lots of different opinions here, but in general I’m not a big fan of harnesses. They can increase a dog’s desire to pull, they don’t give you head control of a dog, and they are more prone to irritate a dog’s skin – especially due to friction from running. There are ways to accommodate all those concerns, but in the end I just don’t think the juice is worth the squeeze so prefer to stick to flat collars.

  2. Will! It’s been a while. You guys look great. My boys are small. I walk / run them on my bike as I’m not stable enough to walk. Can the Iron Doggy be adaptable as a bike leash?
    Love Jo, Sam and Dean

    • In theory I think you could rig it to work that way, but if you’re looking primarily for a biking leash I think it’s probably worth investing in something specifically designed for that.
