Review Day

    Hey, everyone! I've got a few reviews lined up for y'all today, so let's get to it!

     First up we have Jones Natural Chews, a company that offers high end, natural, USA made treats and chews. They have a lot of different kinds of chews, from bones to bully sticks to lamb treats to chicken treats and everything in between. If you're an allergy pup like I am, you'll know how pawesome that is!
I was sent their Lamb Lung Puffs, Bully Sticks, Wheezer Sticks and Hooves. I've also tried out their Windees (beef trachea), and you can take my word for it on how tasty those are!











PROS:
Natural
USA made
Good prices for the quality
Tasty!
Lots of choices
Good amount in each product
Good service

CONS:
I'd like to see less bones offered, since I know I'm not the only one who's not allowed cooked bones due to high risk of splintering

     You can find them from online retailers and some pet stores (I know our local Pet Supermarket offers them). 4/5 stars.



     Up next we have an awesome convertible leather leash from Ruff and Tumble Dog, an Etsy shop specializing in gorgeous leather leashes and collars. If you've followed me for a while, you know that Mom and I are total suckers for leather, particularly good quality leather, and this leash fits the bill perfectly.

     The leash is 7ft long when used as a standard leash, and converts to an over-the-shoulder/hands free leash by clipping the snap to the D ring in the middle of the leash. In addition to using it as a hands free, you can easily use the clips to hook your dog to something if need be.
It comes in three widths (1/2", 3/4" and 1") and comes in black or brown with your choice of brass or silver hardware. Mine is 1/2" wide, black, with silver hardware.








PROS:
So soft
Durable
Functional
Easy to use
Strong
Durable
Good customer service
Feels like it was already broken in
Price is in line with similar items

CONS:
I'd really like to see more D rings, so you could wear it as a waist leash and just have more variety for hook up lengths

     4/5 stars.


     Now we have a super cute collar from Chloe's Collars, an Etsy shop making dog collars that have a classic look due to their metal buckles. They offer both dog and cat collars in lots of widths and sizes, with or without bowties or flowers. Here's a little about them:


Chloe's Collars offers Custom Handmade Dog and Cat Collars, Bow Tie attachments and Leashes with metal buckles! These dog collars give a high style look compared to your everyday plastic buckles. I use high quality ribbon or fabric, nylon webbing, and nickel plated metal hardware for all of my collars. Each product is handmade with love and care for you and your furry friend. Thank you for visiting Chloe's Collars!

Plastic Side Release Buckles can be substituted for Metal Buckles if you prefer. I can also make any style into a Martingale style. Please Contact me if you would like a custom listing. 

Leashes are also available: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChloesCollars?section_id=7674341

Matching Key Fobs/KeyChains/Wristlets:http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChloesCollars?section_id=7876309

Each collar/leash/key fob is handmade, custom for each order in my smoke free home. They are triple stitched at high pressure areas to insure for strength and durability. 

All Products can be hand washed or put on the top rack of the dishwasher. Lay flat to dry. 


    I picked this adorable 3/4" wide chevron collar to test.







PROS:
Cute
Great selection
Lots of sizes
Good prices
Cool looking
Durable
Fast shipping
Good service
Washable

CONS:
Nothing!


     And lastly we have a collar from Lucy Lou's Designs, an Etsy shop making dog collars, leashes and accessories. I picked their 3/4" wide FL Gators  collar.





PROS:
Lots of sizes
Florida company!
Cute
Lots of choices
Fast shipping
Good service
Good prices

CONS:
 No metal buckles offered

   

     Kisses and tail wags,
Dachshund Nola

  2. Schnazzy collars. We are so afraid of a lot of bones due to splintering. We had an antler splinter on us one time
