We all want to treat our pets to the very best care, goodies and fun, but sometimes (especially in this economy) pet owners need to be mindful of budgets. Here are five easy ways to spoil your dog without breaking the bank or sacrificing goodies! (more…)

Do you have dog who loves to fetch tennis balls, sticks, a Frisbee or any other toy that can be thrown a delightful distance? No? Well, that’s okay.
Most dogs adore the prospect of being allowed to run wildly after a moving object and while some quickly discover the brilliant practice of having their owner throw such an object over and over and over again, some pups miss the biscuit entirely. So how do you teach your canine chum the mystery of fetch and to actually bring – the – ball – BACK? (more…)
There are no words to describe how much I love dogs and animals. There really aren’t! And every time I read a report about animal neglect or hear about the horrific conditions that so many lovely dogs and animals have to endure every day all over the world, my heart collapses. I feel crushed and hopelessly ineffectual because often times animal welfare issues seem too big for one person to take on and solve alone. (more…)
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
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
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
This 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!
