This is what got it all started for Cycle Dog!
Developed from the desire to find a great use for recycled bicycle inner tubes, these eco-friendly collars and leashes resist bacteria and fight the stink. They also have an integrated bottle opener for your beverage of choice, so quality time with your dog was just taken to a new level!
You can easily see what type of bike tube was used in the 6 foot leashes. They have a heavy duty easy latch closure. We have noticed that it is incredibly soft in hand, and has a little give for when your dog decides to pull. It isn't nearly as jarring as other leashes, and because of the rubber inner tub, it doesn't slide in your hand. They come in an enormous variety of state flags, patterns, themes and Max Glow reflective materials.
We keep a limited number in stock, so order while we have them! If you see an variation that is out of stock, please let us know so we can add it to our next order.

Cycle Dog’s goal is to create the world’s best dog products with a focus on the environment and to raise awareness of the millions of bike tubes thrown into landfills every year. Hand sewn products are proudly made and tested in Portland, Oregon. Since 2009, Cycle Dog has reclaimed hundreds of thousands of discarded inner tube rubber targeted for landfills.
Lanette Fidrych started by collecting tubes from bike shops and sewing them in her home. After many R&D sessions, she created the iconic inner tube-backed dog collar. Not only eco-friendly, the rubber backing doesn’t allow bacteria to grow and the collars did not get stinky. She knew she had created something special. After family & friends loved the product, she started selling at Portland’s Saturday Market. She sold out the first day, and soon decided to quit her corporate job and pursue her passion full time.
