I saw Mutt Gear’s Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leash on Dog Milk the other day, and I liked it so much that I’m not only going to repost it here, but I’m considering ordering a couple for Ming and The Dizz. The Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leash, as you might guess from the name, is fiercely durable, made from flexible airplane cables that boast a tensile strength of 900 pounds, making them (virtually) immune to chewing, breaking, and tangles. These leashes are seriously not joking around.
The Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leash feature a detachable, swiveling comfort-grip handle (with a breaking limit of 3000 pounds) and comes in a variety of lengths and strengths, including a handy traffic lead (pictured above).
So, what do you think? Pink for Dottie, and yellow for Ming?
You can learn more about the Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leash and place an order at the Mutt Gear web site.

Somewhere around 2:24 every afternoon, when the pups are gettin’ into that really deep afternoon kind of sleep, I completely lose all ability to concentrate on my work. It’s like a physical sickness. I tell myself I’ll take a break with a little Facebook visit or a YouTube video or two, and 45 minutes later I’m printing out crock-pot recipes and checking airline ticket prices to Phoenix. Somewhere in that black hole of afternoon time suck, I always visit ModCloth.
I’m stoked to see ModCloth’s new collection of leashes and collars, most notably the Right Bark ‘Atcha collar and leash.
The Right Bark ‘Atcha set isn’t yet available, but you can sign up to receive a notification when it’s in stock and available for purchase.
While you’re over at ModCloth, check out their Bow-WOW contest. You can submit a video of your pup performing her best trick for a chance to win a $200 gift certificate! Mingus and Dottie have to learn a trick FAST.

The days are getting longer and warmer, and that means it’s hiking season once again. My favorite go-to company for great outdoor gear for dogs is Ruff Wear, and they’ve recently introduced some new products just in time for hiking season. My favorites of the new collection are the Top Rope collar, which features a fierce buckle and a conveniently located V-ring for easy leash connection, and the Flat Out leash, which is a hand-held, waist-worn, and fixed leash all in one — perfect for a day on the trail.
Check out the new gear and old classics at Ruff Wear.

Y’all might remember Sydney, Australia’s Ruthless Leather from our feature a few months back. I am seriously covetous over basically everything on their site, but if someone wants to go ahead and get me the O-Disc cuff in red I’d be perfectly happy with that.
Today, April 1st, Ruthless is celebrating their one-year anniversary, and they’re celebrating with an awesome promotion — a complimentary leash with any full-price collar order through noon on Monday, April 4th Sydney time (which is 10:00 p.m. Sunday here on the east coast of the United States). One lucky buyer will also receive a complimentary matching cuff! (And, say, if they wanted to, that lucky buyer would be free to then gift that cuff to me.)
You can read all about the promotion here. Happy Birthday, Ruthless!

Confession time, guys and gals: I know I probably don’t pay enough attention to small dogs on this blog. I was out running errands yesterday afternoon, and as I pulled into a parking space, to my right sat a teeny little chi in a Ford Expedition just staring at me, like seriously giving me the stinkeye. As our staring contest progressed I realized the little chi was trying to tell me something, that I need to think more about the little guys.
It’s nothing personal, I swear. It’s just that since I don’t have little dogs, I don’t often realize they have different needs. For example, I rarely think about the fact that some of you actually can and do carry their dogs out and about with them. Y’all are lucky, and you need and want stylish gear.
Such as the Pablo striped dog sling.
The Pablo sling is machine-washable and features an adjustable strap, quilted lining, and a button-down cover. You can fetch the sling in Pablo and other patterns at Bark Slope.

Yeah, so maybe it’s like 40 degrees and gray and rainy here, but bump that. It’s SPRING. I refuse to acknowledge anything to the contrary. In my head it’s 70 degrees and we’re grilling out and taking long evening walks with the dogs.
The Sailor’s Knot leash from Mascot is perfect for a long spring-y walk, and it’ll look great on the beach this summer, too.
The Sailor’s Knot Lead is made of water-repellent polypropylene cording and is available from Mascot’s web site.

It’s definitely been feeling like spring here lately, and it’s got me feeling like I need a new pair of shoes. Of course, almost anything can make me feel like I need a new pair of shoes — if it’s Tuesday, or Wednesday, or rainy, or sunny, or I’m happy or sad. You get the idea.
Maybe your pup is feeling like she needs to rock a fresh new style for spring? Our pals at Cody’s Creations are offering 15% off your entire purchase in their shop. Go and take a peek at their handmade collars, harnesses, leashes, and handy treat pockets and leash pouches.
