We liked this running lead
We used, in fact still use this product with our springer spaniel, at first it took her a while to get the idea of running with me not against me, she'e a keen little thing, nose to the ground, weaving left and right.
After a few weeks and by using commands she soon got the hang of jogging with me at my pace, infact she stayed in a straight line too. The fact that the lead is elasticated is brill, it takes away those sudden jolts. When we are both tired we can simply just walk along and the best bit, no hands holding onto the lead. We have also used this lead when we had three dogs and attended fun dog shows, 2 dog on leads and one on the hands free waist leash, this makes life so make easier.
Note! We advise it is best to use this waist belt with a dog harness. (not included)
