Walking Belt Walking belt

The Windchill Walking Belt clips around the top of the hips for hands-free walking of one or more dogs and for hiking with your dog.

The Walking Belt makes it easier to control strong dogs and leaves both hands free to pick up after your dog, to assist your dog if necessary or do other things requiring both hands while maintaining control of your dog.

Windchill walking belts are adjustable and are padded at the back with polar fleece for added comfort.  The belt fastens at the front with a side-release buckle for easy and quick access. They are made from 45 mm (2 inch) load-binder webbing with stainless steel fittings, and has an adjustable clip-on section for attachment of one or multiple leads - can be used with any standard lead.

Both the belt and lead-holding section are adjustable for a perfect fit and comfortable walking. To attach your dog’s lead(s) simply undo the snap hook on the lead-holding section across the front of the walking belt, thread through the handle of your dog’s lead(s) and re-attach the snap hook to the D-ring (as pictured).

The lead strap is removable and can be replaced if it becomes worn.

Should the belt buckle happen to come undone your dogs are still attached to you.


It is recommended that you wear the walking belt around your hips to avoid putting pressure on your back - measure around the top of your hips to determine which size you will need.

Tips for Walking Strong Dogs...

Attaching your dog's lead to a walking belt allows you to use the strength of your leg muscles to control your dog.  It also lowers and centres the pulling point which gives greater stability and reduces the risk of you being pulled off balance. 

When walking a dog that is pulling hard, getting yourself to the side of your dog, rather than directly behind, will assist in giving you control.  The dog has greatest strength when pulling directly forwards, so introducing a sideways pull on the dog helps give you the advantage and reduces their pulling power.

It is also advisable to bend your knees slightly so the impact of the pull is taken by your leg muscles rather than your joints.

Please note that the walking belt must be worn around the top of the hips, not at the waist, so the pressure is not on your back.

The water bowl folds out to a diameter of around 18 cm (7 inches) and depth of about 7 cm (2.5 inches), which is large enough for any dog to drink from without excessive spillage.
