screen-shot-2016-12-29-at-3-55-27-pmThe bike tow leash began as a bike leash for running and exercising a dog safely. The popular leash quickly found its way to being used on wheelchairs also. The stiff yet flexible design keeps the leash from getting tangled — and the dog from getting too close or in front of the individual. The leash keeps both the rider and the dog safe. It makes an outing with a dog pleasurable, hands-free and fun!

An added benefit is that the dog is trained to be in the heel position. The American Pet Association gave it 5 stars and it is made in the USA.
