I love the freedom and focus of the hands-free leash setup.
Hands-Free Dog Leash Walking Kit
“Which Hands-Free Dog Leash and Belt do you use for the Husky Squad”? This question is hands-down one of the top three dog product related questions we receive on Youtube and Instagram. In this blog, I’m excited to share with you our unique, durable, and flexible dog leash setup we’ve been using for our huskies since 2018.
WHY WE USE A HANDS-FREE DOG LEASH WALKING KIT
Almost since day ONE of dog parenthood, we quickly realized that using the typical leash-in-hands method is inconvenient, unsafe, and unpleasant. We thought about innovating a system that would give us more convenience and security, with added multiple fail safe features. We also pictured having the ability to hold treats and other items easily. I especially wanted my hands to be free to enable better focus on training and bonding while enjoying the outdoors with our fur kids. That was in 2009.
Back then, hardly any products existed to create this system for daily walks, so we started building our own belt methods and attached existing leashes to those belts. We quickly realized how durable these belts need to be, and the only belts that were secure enough were extremely bulky climber’s belts. You can even see us using them in some of our older Youtube videos!
We tried various setups through the years, including ready kits you can buy, until we fine-tuned exactly what we wanted in a hands-free dog leash system. We pieced simple and durable components together, and we’ve been using this system successfully since 2018. We’ve literally traveled around the world with the Husky Squad using this setup.

WILL THIS SYSTEM TRAIN MY DOG TO WALK BETTER ON LEASH?
YES AND NO. Let me explain.
Let’s define “better, well mannered, or well-behaved”, shall we? You may be tired of your dog pulling your hands on the leash, or suddenly jolting you by the leash because there’s a squirrel across the street. This can be an extremely frustrating experience! This behavior can often lead to dogs getting less exercise, and for dog parents not experiencing the joy of having a dog to begin with. After all, walking and hiking with our dogs is one of the most (if not the best) rewarding activities we can enjoy with our fur kids. But, I UNDERSTAND you. Walking with your dog needs to be a pleasant experience for your dog, AND for you.
So what’s the “YES” part I mentioned above in my answer?
This hands-free leash system CAN ABSOLUTELY assist you in working with your dog. Because your hands will be freed up, you can focus more on proper walking manners, bonding, and enjoying one of the most beneficial activities you can do together. However, no system will do the training work for you, this is where you take charge and guide your dog in this process.
I’ve been using THIS hands-free dog leash setup to work with our huskies, as well as other dogs we’ve fostered, rehabilitated and adopted out to loving families. Although our method is not what you’ll get from classically trained dog trainers, we’ve found incredible success in the way we use it. Training our dogs in our own ways has even eventually led us to trust our huskies to be off-leash and enjoy the great outdoors even more – and beyond. I feel every dog parent deserves to experience this special and trusting dog connection.

NOBODY TALKS ABOUT THE CAUTIONS OF A HANDS-FREE SETUP
It’s extremely important to learn if this setup is safe for your current physical health condition, as well as the safety precautions you need to be mindful about for your dog. Be sure to watch the video above for detailed explanations.
Additionally, I would not recommend starting to use a hands-free dog walking system during pregnancy. I also suggest checking with your midwife or health care provider if you can use this setup during pregnancy, even once you and your dog are already used to it.
MY CLOSING THOUGHTS ABOUT HANDS-FREE DOG LEASHES
I really enjoyed writing this blog, and I’m excited for you to open up this new, convenient, safe, and more enjoyable chapter with your dog. Remember, tools are just tools, and only when we use them properly with PURPOSE and INTENT, is when we experience the most benefits. You and your dog will enjoy and benefit from this hands-free dog leash system the most when your dog is well mannered and deeply bonded with you. This hands-free dog leash kit will certainly help you in your dog training journey.
