Video Q&A With Mighty Paw CEO & Founder Corey Smith

As I mentioned briefly in the introduction, Mighty Paw's CEO & Founder Corey joined me for a little Q&A video about his first product baby so to speak, the Mighty Paw Hands-Free Bungee Leash Set!


How to Use the Mighty Paw Hands-Free Bungee Leash Set

Our Hands-Free Bungee Leash Set consists of a belt that you wear around your waist and a bungee leash that you clip on the belt and then to your dog's collar or harness. 

Tip: Clip the bungee leash onto the leash attachment on the back of your dog's harness if you want him or her to pull you. If you want them next to you, it's easier to just clip the bungee leash onto their collar.

The belt is available in two sizes and easily adjusts. 


The leash comes with a built-in traffic handle right next to your dog's head. This feature comes in handy when you need to keep your dog right next to you.

For example, when you're running or walking by other dogs or people, or the occasional small critter like a rabbit, cat or squirrel decides to cross your path!

Corey already gave it away in his video, and I'm here to confirm it because I personally am actually not a runner but LOVE this leash all the same!

The Hands-Free Bungee Leash Set doesn't only work great for running, it's also wonderful to use on extended walks and hikes, snow or shine!

Any Cons?

The hands-free bungee leash set is a not a good option to run or walk dogs that weigh less than 30lbs, so that's something to keep in mind.
