DOG LEASH REVIEW: THE RUFFGRIP® LEASH

toronto dog blog

There is a new dog leash in town and it is making quite an impression in the dog community. The RuffGrip® leash is here and is far beyond ‘just another leash.’ It is practically and thoughtfully designed, comfortable to use and symbolizes the strong bond between dog and owner – literally! Here is what we love about this new product.

REASON #1: RuffGrip® is super duper durable

toronto dog blog

Constructed from non-slip, lightweight grip, rubberized woven nylon this leash is all kinds of durable! Not only does it deter chewing (for those dogs who insist on using their leash as a substitute tug-of-war toy), but it also handles all sorts of weather conditions, which, as all of you fellow Canadians will appreciate, is a major plus!

According to the RuffGrip® website, “South African security teams in Iraq use the leash in 135o temperature and fine sand. Alaskan rescue teams use it in the coldest weather.”

REASON #2: RuffGrip® has excellent grip

toronto dog blog

Little leather ‘stops’ are strategically placed at six-inch intervals along the length of the leash, offering pet parents an easier and steadier grip. When walking Rory on previous leashes I always physically tied knots throughout it; should the leash slide through my grip one of the knots could stop it breaking free from my hand completely. The RuffGrip® leash, however, adds this little feature in automatically which makes a big difference.

REASON #3: RuffGrip® is great for kids

toronto dog blogThis product has earned all sorts of recognition for helping children to handle pets on a leash (with proper parental supervision, of course). The brand earned 4.7 stars from the Parent Tested Parent Approved Awards and is noted to help children better assume a role of responsibility in caring for their canine family members.

This new leash checks all the must-have boxes on our list and is now one of our go-to leashes for long walks through our lovely city!

2015 PUGSTOCK: PAWSH PET PHOTOBOOTH

2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog Festival 2015 Pugstock Dog FestivalGuess what? Pawsh is returning to Pugstock 2015 in Ottawa this October and we’re bringing a lovely pet photography photo booth with us to capture all of those adorable pug wrinkles and mannerisms!

We had a fantastic time at this festival last year and learned a lot from our experience. We hope to apply those lessons to this year’s photobooth to make it even more fun for all who come out! The event takes place on October 25th 2015, but visit here for all the details.

THIS YEAR’S OFFER… $20 PUG PORTRAITS!
– two final retouched hi-res files (emailed directly to you within 7 business days)
– a beautiful contemporary white background
– the option for just your dog or you and your dog to be photographed

[Tweet “$20 dog portraits by Pawsh at Pugstock on October 25th, 2015! Don’t miss it! http://on.fb.me/1Mo5i2F”%5D

What we still need help deciding is how to dress up our set for these portrait sessions. Should we bring pumpkins and hay bales for a seasonal feel or keep it very minimalist to ensure a more timeless aesthetic?

Looking forward to seeing everyone again and to snuggling those adorable puglets!
