If you’re looking for a new running partner, look no further than your dog. Running with your dog is reported to offer multiple benefits for both of you including increased motivation, better physical and mental health and a stronger bond.  Plus, thanks to Mountain Paws’ advanced Shock Absorber Lead, taking your daily dog walks up a gear is easier than ever.

Our Editor runs twice a week with Rufus, who’s a 19-month old Cavalier. The belt attaches well around the runner’s middle and the lead is almost the correct length for a smaller dog. It would work best for a medium to large sized dog as your running partner though. The Shock Absorber Lead features a premium webbing construction with a strong, elasticated section that reduces the impact of tugging or jolting to ensure maximum comfort for both pet and owner.

The Shock Absorber Lead has a rugged construction and features a robust, high-strength Karabiner attachment that can be quickly and easily secured to your dog’s collar. Made from robust nylon webbing that will stand up to the wear and tear of your daily outings, the Shock Absorber Lead also features a padded, neoprene handle that is more comfortable to hold and minimises the risk of rubbing or discomfort.
To ensure your pet is safe while running in urban areas or on the road, the feature-packed lead also includes a grab loop near the dog’s collar, ensuring you can keep them close to you while navigating busy roads or crowded areas.
