Mighty Paw Hands Free Bungee Leash Review and Coupon Code

What is Mighty Paw?

Mighty Paw is a company that designs high-quality products that make it easier (and more fun) to be active with your dog.

My weimaraner Remy and I have been using the hands-free bungee leash from Mighty Paw for running and hiking. The leash comes in a 3-foot version and a 4-foot version and clips to a light-weight, durable waist belt.

My thoughts on the hands free bungee leash:

I did not expect to enjoy using a hands free leash because I’m a stickler on keeping my dogs at a tight “heel” and keeping them under control.

However, I found it enjoyable and relaxing to use the hands free leash on rural hikes and runs with my weimaraner Remy. This leash keeps me focused on enjoying time with my dog without nagging at him or worrying about perfection.

Sometimes when I just let him do his own thing, he falls into a nice pace at my side anyway. And if I need to grab the leash for a moment, it’s still easy to do so.

I like using this leash for running in the country when there are not other dogs or people in our path. My puppy does not have proper leash manners yet so I don’t use this leash for walking (he pulls). You certainly could if you have a well-behaved dog.

The leash comes in either black or gray & green. There is a 3-foot version and a 4-foot version. I have the 3-foot gray & green version.


What’s unique about the hands free leash?

I like how the bungee in the leash absorbs the majority of the tension from Remy’s pulling, even if he darts in another direction. However, it maintains enough strength to keep him “reeled” in. (Specifically, the bungee has 14” of “spring.”) The nylon is also weather proof with reflective stitching for safety after dark.

The leash has a clip on each end so it’s easy to clip on and off the waist belt if you decide to use it as a regular leash or clip the leash around something as a temporary tie-out.

The waist band has two D-rings and the leash has a D-ring too so there’s lots of flexibility on what you can do.

Finally, if for some reason you’re not satisfied with the leash, Mighty Paw offers a 100% money back guarantee for 90 days.

Pros of the hands free leash:

  • High-quality and affordable (starts at just $19.99)
  • Appealing colors
  • High-quality, lightweight yet durable
  • Holds up to strong pullers and dogs up to 100 pounds or so
  • Multi-purpose due to multiple clips and D-rings
  • Allows you to maintain proper running form
  • Gives you and your dog more freedom while you’re running or hiking
  • Reflective stitching
  • Weatherproof material

  • With any hand-free leash, you obviously have less control of the dog.
  • The product does encourage my high-energy weimaraner puppy to pull.

Would I buy this leash?

Yes. I never thought I would appreciate a hands free leash because, like I said, I’m firm on making my dogs heel. However, this leash surprised me. I really enjoy using it with Remy for running and hiking in the country, and the price is affordable.

Would I recommend the leash to others?

Yes, if you’re looking for a hands free leash for running, hiking or even walking, this is a high-quality product I highly recommend.

  1. So, do you find there is any *bonging* like w/a rubber band, sorry best term I had to describe what I was asking. B/c bungies let ya free fall then kinda have ya *bob* up & down abit.

    1. Lindsay Stordahl

      I know what you mean! There’s not much “springing” because although it’s a bungee it is still strong/tense, if that makes sense. Remy is about 50 pounds and pulls me pretty hard at times but we don’t “spring” each other much. The one struggle I do have is when I unclip it from the waist belt and hold it as a regular leash, I find there is too much “spring” for my comfort then (due to his poor leash manners). But not when it’s on my waist/hips.

  2. I’ve just started to run with my dog Colin and I think the hands free option would be great for him. Turns out he only “pulls” on the leash when we walk, running he seams to settle in by my side.

  3. This would be great for dogs under self control while you work with another dog that needs more of your attention. I love this idea.

  4. I always run with my aussiedoodle and she likes to bob and weave side to side and I have to keep switching hands when I run. This would be so helpful and is a genius idea. Now I just need to find a local half marathon that lets me run with her! Fingers-crossed!!

  5. I would love this for running with Moo! I already clip a regular leash to my running belt and a harness on her, but I’ve looked at leashes like this before and think it would work great!

  6. I have a new mini aussie puppy and would love this for him. He is awesome! I think this would be just the thing for his independent spirit .

  7. Every day I run with my black lab and we are looking for a hands free leash because I use a regular leash and it is not the same. My dog and I will be so happy

  8. Sadie Mae would love to have this. It would certainly come in handy because my Carolina dog loves to grab the leash.

  9. Christina Moran

    This looks fun! My husband will be training our puppy in the spring to run with him, MN is too cold in the winter as you know.

  10. My fur-baby went blind after long-term eye disease – it would great to have this device
    so I can stay connected to him without having to use a leash in my hand for the whole walk!

  11. Sandy Weinstein

    i know that one of my 3 gals would love this. it will be Tressa or Harley, the 2 younger girls since they love to go for runs.

  12. That would take the pressure off my fingers when he decides to pull, which is often. I have had to change to around my wrist, which leaves a bruise.

  13. Pup says, “I am a good boy on a leash, but if I see a squirrel or rabbit I forget it is “easy walking time” and gotta get it. Mom does not like that at all and gets boo boos. The Mighty Paw Hands Free leash will make things safer for Mom and give me freedom too!”

  14. Cool product. I would love to try it, as my CGC Andy walks so well while his brother is pretty good at leash walking but is less aware of me, watching every bird, leaf, butterfly, etc., so I work hard to keep Zander’s attention focused … Andy could easily just do his thing while I work with Zander. Oh, the joys of walking two young dogs together 🙂

  15. Ajax would love a leash like this. He is not well behaved but with this he would learn around the house how to behave much better because he would have to be with me all the time. Yes he says he would love to then he could
    be inside with me more.

  16. I have been thinking about getting one of these for months. I use my own rigged version with a fanny pack, but this seems so much better!

  17. Oh yes Emma Lou and I kinda go hands free now but a leash like that would be alot better.I clip her to my belt so I can smoke my pipe while were walking.It only works after shes been working/running/fetching the ball.First I have to wear her down a little or she`ll rip my belt down.I went and got her that charging light up collar for at night.This would go good with that.

  18. How sturdy are the clips? My husky is a runner. In the winter I always use a hands-free leash because if I slipped on the ice and dropping the leash, he’d be gone for days. Some of the leashes I’ve looked at are too flimsy and look like the clips would break.

    1. Lindsay Stordahl

      They’re very sturdy. I think they’d hold up to a strong husky no problem. Remy pulls hard and he’s only about 50 pounds but he’s very strong.
