NEW! 2021 Flat Out Dog Leash - Hand-Held or Waist-Worn

Love mine - bought this one as a gift

The waist lead is wonderful hands free dog walking. I like mine so much that I got this one as a gift for my mum.

The best leash

We've tried so many brands of leashes and we came back to ruffwear. It's nice on the hands when the dog pulls (I had leashes cutting my hand because the edges were not soft at all). We don't even use it around the waist, it has a great length enough to give the dog freedom to explore, but it's light so you can wrap around your hands for a shorter lead. And the "traffic handle" is the best thing in the universe. I know it's not cheap but it's worth every penny!

We'd love your feedback!

Have you enjoyed or dreamed of an epic 'dog-friendly' holiday with your pup?

He loves them

He loves them he lifts his feet to get them on improved his arthritis as it’s already 3 degrees here and the house has tiled floor they are like slippers for him

Very happy

Very bright red saddle bags arrived very quickly
Really good fit for my 18-month old rottweiller girl. Easy to put on. Very smart. Very well made. Carries daily walk needs ie baggies and treats. Room for keys and extra leads if needed.
I am happy that she is wearing a well fitted and comfortable product.

Ruffwear dog harness

Great harness, easy to apply and adjust.

Best harness ever!!!

We LOVE this harness for our Maggie. She is a rescue and engages in a lot of pulling on leash, either due to hyper arousal (excitement), or fear. With this harness, with the lead attached at the front, she literally barely even tries to pull! It’s super effective. We used to use harnesses that would slightly tighten upon pulling, which now I understand would have compounded her anxiety. This one is so much better for her, and also, such a durable design. It’s also SO bloody easy to put on and take off. We got the bright red which looks fab against her brindle coat. ☺️☺️ Super happy to recommend!
