What’s better than leash-free play for your favorite pup or old hound? Not having to keep track of the leash once your dog is running free. Rad Dog, LLC., a Bellingham-based company, offers products to help dog owners enjoy the great outdoors with their four-legged companions.

The Release N Run leash, the company’s flagship product, was born on a run in the foothills of Golden, Colorado as owner 
Brian Dagnon experienced the frustration of carrying an empty leash on a run with his dog. His invention began like many, with a little ingenuity, creativity and the resources at hand. Utilizing a janitor’s keychain with a small reeling mechanism that retracts the cord and climbing webbing, he fashioned a prototype for a collar that does double duty on the trail. 

Now, the sleek cordura collar weighs less than five ounces and includes a retractable 4' leash made of Kevlar-like cord that stows away snugly and is salt water resistant. It offers the added benefit of your dog always having a leash attached, and is suitable for dogs up to 110 pounds. 

Available in sizes small through extra large, the collars and leashes are a great asset for anyone who loves to let their dogs run free on the trail or in the park.
