THE IN THING

Pets (Singapore) - - Contents -

Let Fido join you on your bike ride with this hands­free dog leash.

The only thing bet­ter than soar­ing freely on two wheels is hav­ing your fur buddy along for the ride. While hold­ing Fido's leash or ty­ing it to your han­dle­bar may seem like a good idea, it's ac­tu­ally dan­ger­ous. Your pooch may pull you off bal­ance lead­ing to a crash; you might col­lide into him if he runs in front of your bi­cy­cle; or the leash might get en­tan­gled in the wheel spokes and cause an ac­ci­dent.

With Leash Buddy’s Bike Leash, cy­cling with Fido is a whole lot safer and more fun. Easy to in­stall and se­cure, Leash Buddy is made with stain­less steel and equipped with a shock-ab­sorb­ing spring that can with­stand up to 68kg of pulling, tug­ging, bumps and sud­den move­ments. This would mean a safer ride even if Fido sud­denly runs or stops. Us­ing a har­ness is rec­om­mended over a col­lar.

The leash at­tach­ment is a cus­tomde­signed leash with re­in­forced ny­lon stitch­ing. It’s flex­i­ble and stretch­able, hence pre­vent­ing you from get­ting pulled off the bike, or from drag­ging and chok­ing your dog. The guide pole also keeps Fido 38cm away from the wheels of the bi­cy­cle, al­low­ing him to run along­side you at a safe dis­tance.

A breeze to in­stall, the uni­ver­sal bracket mounts on to any bike, cre­at­ing a sturdy and se­cure base. All that is needed is about 32cm of room on your seat to clamp it se­curely in place. Leash Buddy can be ad­justed to ei­ther side of your bike and can be switched eas­ily. The quick re­lease sys­tem al­lows the at­tach­ment to be pulled out and clipped back in—all within 30 sec­onds!

Made with high-en­ergy dogs in mind, the ver­sa­tile de­vice can be used on and off bike, and can also be short­ened.

Leash Buddy Dog Bike Leash re­tails at US$79.99 (S$108.95) and is avail­able at ama­zon.com. Ship­ping rates ap­ply. Find out more at leash­buddy.com.
