Belt Leash System is designed for hands-free walking convenience and includes 3 modular parts:

  1. Belt: Quick-Release buckle on an adjustable 1″ wide belt. Intended to be worn low on the hips over your clothing or jacket. Quick-Release buckle is easy to unlatch in a hurry for safety. Adjust it as needed for fitting over a thick winter coat, or just shorts and a t-shirt. The belt makes a nifty place to attach training accessories (treat pouch, clicker, etc.).
  2. Belt-Loop Attachment: Slides along the belt for convenience and allows leash to be attached or removed as desired. There are two available attachment styles: 
    • Quick-Release buckle (durable metal buckle)
    • Ring & Bolt snap attachment (leash clips to ring)
  3. Leash: Adjustable length for just the right amount of space to keep your dog close to you, yet on a loose lead.


Each component can also be ordered separately. Modular system allows you to further customize your setup. 

Option: Add a Traffic Lead to your order if you would like a handle on the leash so you can use it separately! (order separately) The traffic lead (or any leash) can be clipped onto a ring near the belt attachment snap/buckle.

PLEASE NOTE: BELT, WAIST, OR HANDS-FREE LEASHES ARE NOT INTENDED FOR DOGS PRONE TO HARD LUNGING OR BOLTING. Choose and use your leash wisely for the safety of you and your dog.

Choose the Belt Size:

Intended to be worn low over the hips over clothing. Measure over your clothes/coat for the best fit.

Sizes include:

  • Small 28-36″
  • Medium 36-44″
  • Large 44-52″

Choose the leash length: 

We recommend choosing an appropriate length so that you and your dog don’t get tripped up or tangled in the leash–perhaps nice and short to keep your dog in a heeling position. Or just long enough that your dog can lay down at your feet. To measure: Use an old leash attached to your dog, hold it to your waist at the position you’d like (loose leash, but not too much excess), and measure the length of leash from your dog to your waist. If in doubt, shorter is better.

Length is the overall range including the attachment!

Available lengths:

  • Short 20-25″
  • Regular 24-30″
  • Long 30-36″
  • Extra Long 36-42″ (+$)

Choose leash width size: 

  • Medium (1/2” / 11mm. width)*Most popular! Great for small/medium sized dogs, yet sturdy enough for larger dogs. Small hardware. 
  • Large (5/8” / 14mm. width)—Sized for larger dogs, size fits well in your hands. A good sturdy weight with large hardware.

*Leash width determines the weight of the leash itself.


These products come standard with stainless steel/silver colored hardware. To order with brass/gold colored hardware, select the option “Make with BRASS” before adding to cart.

Specialty Hardware

Our standard hardware is a Bolt Snap, but specialty hardware is available by request if you need a different type of snap.

Our leather comes in two colors: tan and black. Read more about our leather color options below:

Our Golden TAN BRIDLE leather is 100% American vegetable-tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Reminiscent of fine English horse tack, this leather is superior in quality to any other leash you’ve seen. Every leash is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your leash arrives supple and feels great in your hands immediately and only improves with age. The color will darken with use and age. 

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather is solid black, and superior to ordinary leashes in texture and quality, cut from select USA hides. It is incredibly durable, yet is very flexible. Feels great in your hands and will simply get better with age. 

Leather care is easy! Don’t worry too much, and don’t be afraid to use your items — we promise leather is incredibly resilient, and regular weather won’t hurt it. If you think your item looks dirty, dry, or just need a little extra love, pouring a little leather conditioner on a cloth, and rubbing it in like lotion will usually do the trick. Baths and a jaunt in the river are just fine, but you might want to offer a little conditioner to your products afterwards. Saltwater can be harsh, so after a visit to the ocean, a good rinse in fresh water and proper conditioning will help preserve and protect your treasured leash or collar. See our Leather Care page for more specific information.

    This is the highest quality belt system available! Absolutely cannot believe the value for the price. The customer service is impeccable and sold me on their company. I will not buy leashes from any where except here!!!

  2. Colleen K.

    I absolutely love the belt system it makes going out with my service dog so much easier because i don’t have to worry about letting go of the leash to use my other hand. It is also very comfortable its not bulky at all. I LOVE IT!!!!!!

  3. Christi P. (verified owner)

    This is the best leash I have ever gotten! The belt system is absolutely wonderful and I can easily clip the harness to whatever other end I need to clip it too. I also purchased a wheelchair attachment and had an extra clip on my dogs harness. This system was so easy to use and it made me comfortable when I go out in case I absentmindedly let go of the dogs leash. It also allowed me to do more things free handled without having something across my chest. I love it!
