We have some thoughts to evolve this into a future product (we call it the Ri- Runner) but we thought people might want to build their own version of the initial prototype. Have fun...be safe...and lets us know what you think.
Eric, Abbey and Ri
Step 1: Step 1: Source the Gear
1- eager mutt (ours is called Ri and she is always ready for a run; even when we aren't up for it!)
1- rock climbing carabiner (found at your favoriate outdoor gear outlet store; we use a 'locking' style but it's not necessary)
1- regular dog leash (i'm guessing you have a couple around the house already but for this setup a 3-4' leash is best fit)
1- rock climbing sling (found at your favoriate outdoor gear outlet store; size matters as the appropriate length is crucial to achieve a best fit more on this later- see step 3 on how to size)
1- poop bag...while Ri dosen't usually go on the run we are always prepared to pick up and carry out
1- an eager dog owner usually helps too!
