GO RUNNING WITH YOUR DOG! BUILD A HANDS FREE LEASH


Hi, meet Ri our trusty hound who loves to run with us. Up until we hacked together this hands free solution we were having a less than steller running experience with her using a regular dog leash.  

We have some thoughts to evolve this into a future product (we call it the Ri- Runner) but we thought people might want to build their own version of the initial prototype.  Have fun...be safe...and lets us know what you think.

Eric, Abbey and Ri

Gear List:
1- eager mutt (ours is called Ri and she is always ready for a run; even when we aren't up for it!)
1- climbing carabiner (found at your favoriate outdoor gear outlet store; we use a 'locking' style but it's not necessary)
1- regular dog leash (i'm guessing you have a couple around the house already but for this setup a 3-4' leash is best fit)
1- climbing sling (found at your favoriate outdoor gear outlet store; size matters as the appropriate length is crucial to achieve a best fit more on this later- see step 3 on how to size)
1- poop bag...while Ri dosen't usually go on the run we are always prepared to pick up and carry out
1- an eager dog owner usually helps too!
