Dachshund Nola Reviews: Lasso Rope Works

     Hi, all! I have a review for you today for Lasso Rope Works, an Esty shop specializing in (you guessed it) rope products for dogs and people. Mom and I are huge fans of rope stuff for dogs since it's super durable and really cool to look at. I have two rope leashes, Pike has one, and there's another we share. Love them!

     Here's a bit about Lasso Rope Works:




Based in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, the sea has been a part of our lives since we were young. In 1996 when we were just 10 & 7 yrs old, our parents took us and our two siblings on the adventure of a life time. We lived on a sailboat for a year sailing all the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. Literally living at sea, we took up various hobbies to entertain ourselves and it was then that we learned the amazing things one can do with a simple rope. 

Through the years, rope decorations & knots had always been present in our home, with our father being the master of rope work, we would have plant hangers, mobile sculptures, fruit hangers, jewelry, you name it, all made out of rope! When we adopted Gaia, our stray puertorrican lab, we started making rope collars and leashes for her as well, and the idea of starting Lasso began forming. Through trials & errors, mentorship from our father, and with the advice of a canine trainer aunt, we have created Lasso, where we hope you are able to find some of the best rope works, leashes, collars and toys suitable for you & your canine companion :)

   
     I picked a rope tag collar to review. A tag collar is a special kind of collar that is worn for ID purposes only. Don't walk your dog on these, as they are typically light weight and worn loose. Lasso Rope Works also offers slip collars, leashes, toys and even a harness.
I picked a bright shade of blue that both Pike and I can wear. It's turned more into Pike's collar though, since I'm usually in a leather one due to my sensitive skin.  The collar has a brass O ring for securing tags. Be careful when you measure for one, as they aren't adjustable.







PROS:
Durable
Several options as far as color
Lots to choose from
Great service
Fast shipping
Bright, vivid color
Soft and comfortable
Fair prices for the quality

CONS:
The O ring is a little large for a collar this small (11" or so)
Only offers brass hardware

     4.5 stars!


Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
