There's a lot of reasons to get a hands free leash - coffee, cellphones, and of course major surgery. Having a dog, even a 7 pound piece of fluff, tug on your arms can be excruciatingly painful. Move the pressure to your waist or hips and suddenly it's quite comfortable. Make it super chic and adjustable about a million ways (across the chest, easy looping around tables/chairs for brunch etc.) and you've got what's basically an accessory that will improve your life 10x. Totes worth it.
