For The Dogs & Their Running Humans | Stunt Puppy Review

Disclaimer: I received the Stunt Puppy Stunt Runner Leash in exchange for my review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, a little something arrived in the mail for our special four-legged family member:

Our border collie, Saul, has been my running partner since he joined our family in 2014. Granted, he was running a lot faster four years ago. Now at 12 years old, running slowly around the block or a nice long walk is his exercise of choice.

The old retractable leash we used was guaranteed to wrap around either his legs, the stroller or one of the kids on our family walks or runs around the neighborhood. As a BibRave Pro, I was then introduced to the Stunt Runner hands-free leash from Stunt Puppy and it has been a game-changer!

Hands-free? Really? YES!

The Stunt Runner connects human to dog with a strong yet stretchable bungee connector  (strength from 42" to 66") allows for differing strides, speed or direction. Saul, a border collie, is a medium-sized dog and this leash would easily work for dogs smaller or larger than him as well.

First things first, I clip on the waist belt which that easily adjusts from 28" to 49". After adjusting the waste belt, I clip the hook onto Saul's leash and we're off.

Saul and I both hardly notice the leash is there on our walks or runs! The Stunt Puppy Alpha™ hardware is very lightweight without sacrificing strength. The floating D-ring on the waist belt allow your dog to move at their own speed without tugging on the waist belt.

The leash material is a soft to the touch, strong and durable tubular webbing that is fit for a king (or queen) pup. Saul is a pretty modest guy but he knows he looks handsome in his red Stunt Runner! We are able to cover the miles together while keeping my hands free to grab the mail, push the stroller or just enjoy a relaxing quiet stroll.

Stunt Puppy is a Minnesota-based business that understands dogs and their running humans. I have been so impressed with all of their products and highly recommend them!

  1. That's a really nice leash! I don't have a dog, but I was a dog walker for a while at the local shelter. I'm actually afraid of dogs for the most part, so that was a way to get me to overcome my fear of them. It did work... until a Chihuahua nipped me. Now I'm afraid of big barking dogs, and little nippy dogs. Haha!!

  2. That looks great! We finally bought one of those harnesses for Cocoa and walks have been so much more pleasant for both of us. She doesn't pull or choke anymore. I may have to look into this leash!

  3. I had a similar type leash for Bandit. I used to run with him but he doesn't seem into it any more so it's been a long time. And his running career just might be over -- but that hands free leash made a huge difference!

  4. We LOVE our Stunt Puppy leash for runs with Matilda! AND it's a Minnesota brand, so great!

  5. This looks like such a great way to make the walk or run comfortable for both the dog and the runner!

  6. Stella and Deuce LOVE their stunt puppy gear and the company is SO nice to work with. I am really loving the new clips!

  7. Yay "pet tax" as we call it on another site I frequent. If you're going to talk about the critters, you have to post a photo. Not a dog owner, but will share this with a friend who runs iwht her dog
