The Hands Free Training Belt can be used for a wide range of training activities, including training a dog to walk comfortably at your side.
For Trainers using rewards, it leaves your hands free for a clicker, or treats and allows you to pay full attention to your dog while training.
The Hands Free Belt is great for walking, or jogging with your dog. It is worn tightly on the Hips so it is secure and comfortable, even with large dogs. It is a wonderfully flexible tool for any serious trainer.
Additional Leads are available if required (see Related Products)
The Belt is Black with 2 reflective stripes and grey contrast logo - your colour choice is for the Adjustable Lead supplied with the belt.
This is Ver3 of our very popular Hands Free Training Belt. (Earlier version is featured in the video)
We have made it easier to use, simpler to fit and stronger.
With Ver3 we have added reflective strips into the Belt webbing so you can be easily seen at night, the supplied Adjustable Lead is Longer - to allow the HFBelt to be used with a Balance Harness, or with shorter dogs. We have also amended the D-ring attachment points to the sides to be able to walk 2 dogs comfortably.
** Not recommended for people with back problems, due to extra strain if a dog pulls suddenly. We also do not recommend using a longer lead with this as it can cause a whip effect if your dog suddenly runs off.
What others think of
I use this Handsfree belt every day with my two dogs that I work with clients (wuth disabilities. LOVE IT! I went to order this evening - however was thoroughly disapponted that the option to have the option of a shorter 45/70cm be unavailable now - this was my major purchase today. So now I will have to double up on Adjustable Leads and have a number of longer ones that will be simply unusable for me and my clients. BDW management - Thanks so much for your suggestion! We have now added all 3 lead options to go with the Hands Free Belt on the website. We love feedback and suggestions from our customers.
I have had this belt for 4 years and would not be without it. I love it . I have a ridgeback x Dane and use it everyday when we go for a run it’s fantastic
As a behaviourist I work all day, every day with clients and their dogs. I wear my own handsfree belt as a part of my uniform with the black dog treat pouch threaded through it. It's great for me but more importantly I have been able to help Mums with prams and dogs to work together effectively with one. People with weak arm strength or disabiities. Wheelchair bound people do well with it too and multiple dog situations. You can concentrate on a learner dog whilst having a well trained one being maintenance free at the other side connected to the hip.
The Black Dog Hands Free Training Belt is fantastic. Mine has seen three years of regular use. I find it especially wonderful when Whippet Boy and I go on photo shoots for birding, or a walk around the local area. It keeps my hands free for manipulating cameras and seems to maximise Whippet Boy's enjoyment of outings as we are literally "joined at the hip". He seems to feel freer than when on his leash, as it also maximises our eye contact. I swapped to the lighter version of the lead. I highly recommend this product if you enjoy taking your dog to places where to be off leash is to be in violation of local government regulations, but your dog can be relied upon to do the right thing at your side! Another super practical quality product from Black Dog!
I have been meaning to write a review for your products for ages. I have two French mastiffs and have been using the Infin8 on both for years. It was a game changer for me. The eldest is 80kgs and youngest 40kgs and I am 55 so it is a godsend for controlling my dogs. I recently purchased the belt for them and now walk them hands free - I love it too. 10/10! Thank you
