I have had this installed for the last month and I LOVE it. My 45 lb lab cross is getting more of the exercise she needs in the city. Prior to installation I started biking with her (holding the leash loose enough to let go in case of squirrel etc) which was great but always felt risky and I could only do it only very quiet streets. Now I can venture further afield and I feel totally safe even when she has the occasional distraction. I do like letting her loose to sniff around etc so I do a mix--I'll use the bike tow leash to get to the city park, then let her offleash while I race next to her (the leash holds itself upright so it doesn't drag even without a dog), then leash up to get to the next park. It's allowed us to venture further faster, enjoying several parks in the space of a half hour or hour. My dog loves it and I've been able to take her out even on days when I have limited time. I also recently injured my foot making it harder for me to do proper walks/jogs, but I can continue to bike.
I got a right-side mount leash so that I can be between my dog and any cars. I got the quick mount so that I can take it off easily for my other biking activities. I am mechanically illiterate/nervous so I brought it to my bike seller for install--they did have to change the location of my bike rack slightly, but overall it didn't cost me much. I'm sure most people could do it themselves.
Although the cost of this leash is significant, the investment is worthwhile. I encourage anybody with an active dog to get one--dogs need so much exercise to stay healthy/happy and its hard to get that in the city.
That is so amazing to hear Katherine! Thank you for your great review!
Our miniature Aussie labradoodle loves it. It is just second nature instantly to the dog to follow. I do always keep a look at her out of the corner of my eye for an instant stop she might make.
We just LOVE these bike tow leashes! We are happy to hear you and your dog are loving it! Thank you for your review!
i’ve tried every tow leash on the market. this is the only one that lets me ride safely with my big dog
Thank you for your review.
The BTL shipped quickly. It installed very easily without tools. The flex is perfect for the dog and can easily be stowed when I ride solo without removing the BTL. I barely notice the dog jerking on it. Now that she's used to it, she is happy just to trot or run along beside me.
Thank you for your review.
Amazing apparatus! One of my best purchases in a long time.
I bought the right sided bike tow leash and the quick mount to accommodate my Raleigh Alysa 1 bike. I was able to install it myself by watching the YouTube video over and over (the video could be much improved), and then I spent a few days just bringing the dog alongside the right side of the bike on his regular leash and walking down the street after we had already gone for our walk to burn off energy. After 4 or 5 days, I clipped him on to the bike tow leash on a quiet street and went!
We managed to bike a couple blocks the first day before needing to take a break (my dog will try to go behind the bike to get on my left side where he usually walks). But with this tow leash I just need to keep an eye on him and if he starts to slow/stop, I stop and put a regular leash on him for few minutes to let him sniff around and pee on stuff. This product is perfect because it’s flexible enough to bend backwards if your dog suddenly slows, but is designed to not be able to get in the way of your wheel, and you really don’t feel if/when they try to go after a squirrel... After a few days I am very happy to say that my dog no longer tries to go after squirrels when we’re cruising with this, he just keeps on with the momentum of the bike because he loves it, and we’re going longer distances every day.
Happy to hear it is working well for you and that you have a happy husky! Thank you for your review.
