Product Review: My Rad Dog – Release N Run Leash

Posted on June 15, 2017 by Margaret Schlachter

Well, I think my dog, Bliss, is pretty rad so when My Rad Dog gave me the opportunity to test out their Release N Run Leash recently I jumped on the opportunity. It feels like our family is always on the go and Bliss, our three-year-old Border Collie mix, is always on the go with us.

Daily he is out with my partner, who works as a professional dog walker, taking dogs into the mountains daily for hikes. Our weekend adventures around Utah and beyond, and family trips. We are always looking for new products to help our life and make Bliss happy. The most recent product to come across my desk was the Release N Run Leash.


At first glance, the leash just looks like a collar, but a closer look finds a hidden four-foot retractable leash in the collar, making it a two in one option.

For us, Bliss is mostly an “off leash” dog and whether we are hiking, biking, or traveling he normally only needs a leash for a short time during any activity. This is where the Release N Run Leash works great, it gets you through the short distance you need a leash then lets your dog be off leash without carrying around an extra leash.


As you can see from the video Bliss had no problem playing frisbee and being his normal adorable self while wearing the Release N Run Leash. We had no problem grabbing the handle to walk with him. Overall, this is a great option for anyone needing that short leash for a short period of time between the car and any activity.

Bliss likes the product, we were able to use the product with ease, and it is a great addition to our dog’s outdoor kit. The only complaint Bliss had was he would have liked another color than fuchsia so people stop calling him a girl. But he blames him mommy for that one! Solid product, and well built.
