9 Way Hands-Free Dog Leash Design

This Hands-Free Dog Leash is our multipurpose waterproof leash with 9 different style options. 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  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.

  • Swivel bolt or trigger snaps on each end

  • Hands-Free leashes are  5/8″width

Hardware Options

All of our dog leash clasps swivel and you have the choice of standard bolt snap or trigger snap. We generally recommend trigger snaps, since the spring mechanism in standard bolt snaps can fail at a quicker rate. Clasps are offered in nickel-plated, solid brass, and stainless steel. The rivets or screws will match the clasp choice. If you choose nickel or brass hardware, your product will be finished with rivets. If you choose stainless steel it will be finished with Chicago Screws.


Which Metal Should I Choose?

Nickel will likely rust eventually, stainless steel may eventually rust (but much less common than nickel), and brass does not rust but rather develops a patina. Stainless steel and brass are the best options if you plan on using your leash in water, especially saltwater.

To prevent the hardware from oxidizing it’s best to dry your product ASAP, and to 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 (methods are different depending on which metal you chose).


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, it works amazing when I’m out with my service dog, so I can keep my hands free!

    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!
