I know I talk about my daughters a lot in my posts, but there are two other very special little females in my life – my fabulous and furry golden retrievers, Callie and Abbie. With all the excitement around this time of year, buying presents for the children and other family members, and getting ready for Christmas, it is easy to forget that our dogs need (and certainly enjoy!) new things as well.
We have always used retractable leashes in the past, but after using the Up Country leads, I much prefer those! My problem with retractable leashes is that they can be difficult to handle, especially when my dogs see a rabbit or a squirrel and take off, as it is then hard to get the leash locked to hold them back. With the Up Country leads, you do not have that problem. The leads are long enough to allow my dogs to walk comfortably at their own pace, but not too long so they can be easily controlled if necessary. Plus, the matching collars and leads look so cute together!
