The bike tow leash is our preferred bike leash for running and exercising your dog safely. Other products risk bike tipping, dog impaling, entrapment, tangling and often the dog can get away. The creator, given their understanding of both physics and dog behavior, created a leash that keeps both the rider and the dog safe. This makes biking with a dog pleasurable and fun. The inventor made sure that it prevents the dog from tipping the bike, satisfied every safety concern, can be installed quickly without tools, fits all bicycles, and is suitable for every shape and size dog. 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.

Putting the bike tow leash is very simple and takes perhaps 1 minute or so once you get the hang of it and know where you will attach it. You do not need any tools or specialty skills to install. It took about 15 minutes for me to figure out a nice spot the first time around as I don't have much space on my bike (female frame, smallish hybrid Schwinn bike). The bike tow leash is easily removable (unscrew two bolts by hand/remove the clamp) and does not leave a hole or any permanent changes to the bike. You can lend it to a friend or switch between your bike and a partner's (or second bike).
I was hoping to have the dog run to my right side, but that was not possible; I didn't have enough room to attach the bike tow leash on the right lower part of my frame. I am currently having her run on my left (not ideal), but we take back neighborhood roads, so it doesn't seem to be an issue. I would suggest bright colors/reflectors for added pet safety. I recently purchased a body harness with reflectors.
Don't worry about the dog tugging or knocking you off bike. My dog is 25 lbs and loves to play with other dogs/chase little critters (we're working on the latter). I can hear her breathing heavier and trying to lurch, but cannot feel it while riding.
I would 100% suggest this bike tow leash to friends/family and think it's worth the somewhat high price.
I have a female Brittany spaniel who is typically hyper-active and mostly happier trotting / galloping rather than walking.
When using the 'bike tow'. it's clear how it got it's name, because she certainly prefers to pull me (I often cycle more slowly deliberately, for a little more safety and control).
The down-side to that is that the more she leads, the closer she gets to the front wheel (because the bar can flex from being perpendicular to the wheel to being parallel).
I've only had one near-miss 'cheese-grater' incident, where a bunny appeared on the opposite side of my wheel, but no harm was done because my dog realized that going through a moving wheel was not going to be a good idea.
But that leads me to my only real criticism. I think I'm going to add about 6 inches of plumbers pipe to the join by the wheel, just to stop the bar flexing immediately by the wheel. Although it wouldn't completely stop my do from getting too close, I think it will at least limit it.
I would recommend using something like a 'cateye' speedometer with this, because that way you will know exactly how fast you are going and how far you have gone.
I always carry a large bottle of water with me - and a dog bowl - because my dog certainly views everything as a race, so needs to re-fuel / cool down. We typically do a little over 4 miles.
As implied by the title, I was a little unsure about spending $150 on this, in part related to the effectiveness and in part due to whether or not there was actually an advantage over the other products, but I have to say that 'so far, so good'.
For now I'm rating it 4 stars, but I may revised that (I have only used it for a little over 50 miles so far).
