Brian Dagnon loved to take his friend’s dog trail running, but didn’t love having to carry a leash around once he got to the trail and let the dog off-leash. An idea occurred to him: what if the dog carried his own leash?
With the invention of the Release N Run--a collar with built-in retractable leash, Rad Dog was born. That was over 10 years ago, and today, Brian and his team continue to be driven by innovation and inspired by the active owner and dog. Made in Bellingham, WA, Rad Dog gear is designed to give dogs and their owners the freedom and convenience to enjoy the outdoors on their own terms.
