As a standard dog leash, it can be used as a long, medium, or short leash and has a built-in traffic lead. As a hands-free dog leash, it can be used over the shoulder, across the body, or around the waist. The  9-Way Hands-Free Leash can also be used as a double attachment point with a harness and a collar for more security, or with two dogs. This is an excellent leash for service dogs because of the versatility and functionality! See photos for examples.

  • Hardware finish available in stainless steel,  or solid brass
  • Stainless Steel or Solid Brass Chicago Screws

Hardware Options

We offer standard bolt, trigger, and quick release snaps in stainless steel or solid brass finish. Every hardware option swivels.  From lightest in weight to heaviest: bolt, trigger, quick release.  Brass hardware is heavier than the same hardware style in Stainless Steel. For dogs less than 20lbs we recommend the bolt option. Chicago Screws will match the clasp finish choice. 


Which Metal Should I Choose?

Both stainless steel and solid brass are very durable and make long-lasting options! Stainless steel is rust-resistant and classic silver color. It is possible for stainless steel to rust, but much less than nickel and it can be cleaned more easily.  Brass does not rust but does develop a patina over time. Stainless steel and brass can both be used in the water. 

Even though stainless steel and brass are durable, it’s still best to prevent the hardware from oxidizing. To do this make sure to dry your product ASAP, and especially rinse off any saltwater. In the case that your hardware rusts or patinas, we recommend searching Google for the best methods to remove the discoloration.


Cleaning Directions

To clean your waterproof hands-free leash, take a bucket of water (temperature doesn’t matter), and add some dish soap. Then swish the leash around in the bucket, rinse clean and allow to air dry. For more stubborn areas use a gentle wet cloth and rub with a bit soap and rinse clean.

    Love how I can use it in so many different ways. Classy look yet very durable. I’m taking it to the beach in a few weeks, excited to see how it holds up and hopefully will be able to take some pics. Would definitely recommend this brand and product.

    My service dog and I LOVE this leash. I adore the fact that there’s several fixed rings to adjust it to as well as two sliding options, a completely loose one and one that you can customize to wherever you want on the leash! I’ve tried loads of hands free leashes and this no joke made a NOTICEABLE difference in our experience maneuvering life as a team. The most user and dog friendly leash I’ve ever had and worth every penny. It’s also so easy to sanitize after an outing which is super important when your dog lies on hospital floors and gross surfaces. Cannot recommend this leash enough. If you have any kind of working dog, or a compromised immune system do yourself a favor and purchase this leash. You won’t regret it!

    I would give this a 4.5/5. The traffic lead part of the leash isn’t perfectly lined up, so that part of the leash can’t lie flat. I just put a leash wrap over that part and you’d never be able to tel anyways. Aside from that minor detail I love the leash, it’s the one I use for professional settings when I bring my service dog.

    Hands down my favorite leash ever! You can tell that The Atomic Hound uses great quality materials because it just feels good in your hands, and the fact that it’s so easy to clean makes it pretty much the only leash I reach for (and I already ordered another one because all the colors are STUNNING).

    I LOVE this leash ? I haven’t been able to take good pictures yet, but they could never do it justice! As an SDiT handler, a hands-free leash is a MUST. The Atomic Hound 9-way leash is a MUST have for any handler and a DREAM. I have a couple other hands-free leashes and this one takes the cake. Is is easily adaptable to my dog heeling on my right, is lightweight, and provides the perfect amount of slack for my dog to lay down, switch sides, and task comfortably. Shipping/delivery was very timely for such a well made, custom item! I’m excited to try more colors!

    We absolutely love our hands free from Atomic Hound. I had seen the style quite a bit with other handers and wanted to try it out. I got the color burgundy in the 7ft length with brass furnishings. It’s perfect for a small or medium dog to be able to sit or down comfortably at the heel. In future, I might want to get a similar handsfree but with your custom made option to have a sliding o ring on the dog side of the leash to have a slip lead as opposed to the traffic lead, because I think that the traffic lead, while great, is less useful to me with a smaller dog in my opinion, it’s probably great for bigger dogs where you can grab easily with out hunching over. Great quality and love the color combo! I would love if they came in pastel colors in the future 😉 Don’t forget the 10% discount for first purchase.
