Product Reviews; Lucky Ducky Stretch Leash

Postby PittyLuvers » Sat Nov 26, 2005 2:10 pm

We found the "Lucky Ducky" stretch leashes at a dog event sales stall in VA. The dogs learn not to pull and the handle is gentle on the hands. We love ours. This is a "Mom and Pop" company and they may not have a website. If anyone can get a contact number for these leashes please send. We are asked about them alot.

I got some doggie football jerseys from them, and a dog t-shirt. I figured they would be just like every other shirt out there but they are actually really nice. They have elastics on them so they dont ride up on the dogs. My dogs really liked them and went nuts when I took them off. I saw some pretty cool stuff on the site to. Check it out![/i]

LDS Leather, I have to say Im suprised they dropped you! I have several products from them and have had nothing but great experiences!
Not sure if its on their website yet but they are NOT a business, they are a fulltime working family that does leather and service dog gear in "spare time". Dont let the proffesional looking website fool you!
Customer service was great, they remember (or keep a log of) your name and preferences and prior orders. All i have to say is my name and they know me. Have a bullhide lead and collar comming in the mail and I have to say im very very excited. have some kangaroo leather stuff already, and a saddlebag and vest. Again, very impressed with workmanship!

K9 Toolbox- had some questions, they were answered promptly, and then I ordered a prong collar and it was in my hands 3 days later. Good stuff!

Nix Lucky Ducky stretch leash Viking label

Postby PittyLuvers » Thu Dec 15, 2005 1:32 pm

We thought these rubber stretch leashes would work out - but the stretch increased and caused the dogs to be less under control and they'd pull. Too bad . . . the rubber handle is sooo comfortable. I'm looking for collar/leash suggestions under the Training section. The Blocky Collar is BIG - but I'm ordering the small one because it's bright and has the dual grip/choke/martingale action and for specials times like Therapy Dog parades. Our Therapy group allows martingale collars, anybody like these? How do they work? Are they good for pit bulls?

I'm going to have to put another good word in for Boomerang Pet Tags.

Ordered late Wednesday night, asked them to alter the order an hour later, and received confirmation of the changes the next morning. Recevied the tag today, on Saturday, with the change I requested.

FAST turnaround time, great quality.

They allow you to put written information on the front and the back of the tag for just $1.25 more than the base price, and they have tons of helpful suggestions for making the tag easier to read. I had enough room to put down my phone number, name, and address, as well as the vet's number, Lucy's name, and that she has a microchip. All on a very sturdy, robust stainless steel tag, and for under $10, including shipping.

I'd reccommend them to anyone, hands down.

Are dog food company reviews allowed here?

I'd like to review Holistic Blend's line. They make absolutely superb holistic food -- I'd eat it myself! There's no corn or beet pulp (a no-no for my dogs), and since I've put my two on it, I've seen a real improvement in the quality of their skin and coat, and it's very easy for Hamish to digest (he has stomach problems due to intestinal blockage surgery). The drawback is that the food (as well as their treats and supplements) is expensive and can be hard to get.

Dog food /snack review

Postby PittyLuvers » Wed Dec 21, 2005 8:24 am

This is a review of a dog snack that I give my pittie. It's really a people food/snack. We tried a pack of dulse, which is a seaweed, and is super rich in nutrients. It's semi-dry/moist, not hard or in a wet-pack. We eat it right from the package. We tried throwing a piece to Rudy and he scarfed it down. Rudy is nuts about the taste. We buy a package about once a month.

Need to update my review of LDS leather. Please see this thread http://pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=32176
thought they were a good company to deal with and was looking forward very much to the new lead and collar, but their unprofessionalism and rudeness towards me (and i still dont have a collar!) are definitely not something I want to give support to

BOO!

I ordered a 2" triple ply, padded collar on a Tuesday night. It was shipped Wednesday and arrived in my mailbox on Friday. I was and am very pleased with the product and the fast/immediate service was refreshing. I'll definitely purchase from him again, especially at those low prices. I'd recommend Stillwater to anyone looking for a collar.

Yahoo Store - Alpha Nutrition (Changing their name to DoggieFood.com)

This online store always seems to offer products at some of the cheapest prices online and has very good bulk-price deals, too, for those that have multiple dogs.

I got the 32oz bottle of Grizzly salmon oil for $22.95, most places have that listed for $26.95 or higher. http://alpha-nutrition.site.yahoo.net/grsaoi32.html

In addition, they ship very promptly and since they are located in RI I received my order in a day!

My faves:

http://www.pacocollars.com

The collars are handmade, custom, original, leather, durable as hell, and the owner's an Oakland local. Pandora and Gunther give these two paws way up.

http://www.trixieandpeanut.com

Expensive but adorable if you're going for that pretty dog "out on the town" look. Gunther is torn on how he feels about being dolled up. Pandora likes being pretty in pink.

http://www.petedge.com

Cheap when going bulk with big orders. Get a group together, save on shipping.

http://www.luckypet.com/

These are my favorite dog tags.

I also absolutely LOVE RC collars (if I'm going nylon):

http://www.rcpets.com/collars.html

They're cute, the clasp is amazingly durable, and their super nice Canadians. Unfortunately, you can't order their collars off the internet directly from them, as they only sell to retailers. I generally bug the local mom 'n pop to carry them for me.

CD Pits

I am very pleased with the quality of work, and the good communication with Cindy of CD Pits. I've bought 2 weight pull harnesses from her, and am wishing I had more dogs so I could buy more harnesses! Prices are totally reasonable for the kind of work she does.

Tablerock

I really like their leather collars. They make all kinds of stuff, and so far, I've heard nothing bad about them. They also did not consider the sale finished until I said I was totally happy with the collar. (There was an issue with it being a few inches too long, but it ended up not being that bad.) They're dyeing leathers in different colors now, and I'm eager to buy some new collars.

DC Collars

I got a beautiful collar for Loki from these guys. However, within about 6 months, Loki pulled hard and the plastic rivet-on tag broke. Shortly afterward, the tag minder pulled out and had to be put back on by my husband. I contacted them, and really didn't hear anything back. She still wears the collar for exercise walks, and its still a good-looking collar -- even with the rivets sticking up where the tag used to be -- but I don't feel like it lived up to the price. Others seem to have had better experiences.

Bull And Terrier

I love their decals. Great quality, and eye-catching. I've bought a few. They also do custom work. They are not as good about answering emails as they used to be, though.

Drs. Foster and Smith

Works for me! I like to order my vaccines through them, and have never had a problem.

PetEdge

I like their prices a lot. And the quality seems to be comparable with anybody else.

Have to give major props to Katie's Bumpers, makers of the "big tug." This toy is buoyant, durable, and brightly colored. It's made of firehose, so it resists tearing and punctures. It seems to be resilient, even though Lucy tries to "kill" it every time she plays with it.

It's not a chew toy, but it is a great interactive toy, especially if your dog loves the water.
