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!

TESTIMONIALS
“My favourite part of my experience was how comfortable Laura made me feel. She took lots of shots from different angles and positions she made the experience very relaxing enabling me to feel comfortable in front of her camera. She captured me very well and gave me a variety of photos to use for different occasions. My main objective for this head shot session was to connect all my business media with the same look by giving a few options and positions I am able to achieve my goal.” ~Lori Schuett, Innovative Interiors ~

TORONTO DOG PHOTOGRAPHER: SHADOW THE SHELTIE’S SOULMATE SESSION

As many of you know, I offer Soulmate Sessions – free photo sessions for pets in the Toronto area who have a terminal diagnosis. This sweet little Sheltie is called Shadow. He is 16-years-old and has been with his family since he was a wee shy pup; although he blossomed into a rambunctious young dog who was always eager to shower everyone with love and affection. Here is his sweet Soulmate Session. (Photography by yours truly via LLB Creative, my human photo company.)

About a year ago, Shadow was diagnosed with arthritis and liver disease and he has been on daily meds ever since. He suffers from complications of liver disease, which include neurological issues and difficulty breathing. And although life is hard now, this handsome little man has had lots of adventures!When he was more mobile, Shadow used to go on daily adventures with his human Dad, Rob. From chasing the waves at Cherry Beach to letting everyone at the park know that there was action happening at the fire station (he has a thing for firetrucks), Shadow brought a certain liveliness wherever he went. He was even The Training Room’s (the gym Rob used to go to) unofficial mascot for many years!I say this all the time – a dog’s only flaw is that they don’t live forever. It was an absolute pleasure spending the afternoon with Shadow and his humans and I feel very lucky to have met this little fellow.
