About Ruffwear
"Ruffwear's mission is to build performance product to enhance and inspire outdoor adventures for dogs and their human companions.
That mission has stood the test of time… and we continually strive to design and build performance dog gear that allows our four-legged friends to accompany us on our shared adventures, all while providing a level of safety and comfort in the great outdoor.
Because we're inspired by our outdoor pursuits– backpacking, skiing, mountain biking – it's natural for us to utilise fabrics, hardware, materials and construction processes that have been proven in the environment we live for and play in. Our dogs (as well as inspired individuals, just like you, with "professional" canine testers) put our products through the paces, providing valuable feedback that motivates and drives Ruffwear's continuous product development.
At the end of the day, we believe it is the amazing connection with our dogs, and their ability to motivate us to get out and explore, that makes all the hard work worth the effort. Dogs encourage us to follow our nose just to see where the experience takes us. They improve our health, our lives, and our outlook… and ask for little in return. Combine a dog's appetite for exploration with the right equipment and you'll be prepared for yet another grand adventure.
Have fun out there!"

Review: I have to say I am positively surprised by the Ruffwear Front Range Dog Harness and Leash.
When I first had a look at both products, I thought they were more fitted and suitable for bigger dogs. There is a great range for medium sized to big dogs out there and small dog owners often miss out. However, when I tried the Ruffwear Front Range Dog Harness on Rocky, I was surprised about how well it fitted. I thought it would be way too bulky, but this was not the case at all. The harness is very adjustable and therefore fits Rocky very well. It is also very sturdy, but the padding makes it comfortable for Rocky to wear. Rocky also didn't mind wearing it at all and in fact started chasing his treat ball while wearing it.
While I do think the ID pocket is a great idea, I feel like I would still always attach Rocky's ID tag onto the V-ring, simply because it makes it more visible in case Rocky should ever run away. I only saw the ID pocket on second glance and almost missed it.

The Ruffwear Front Range Leash is also great. I was at first worried that the clip would be too big and heavy for Rocky, but he doesn't seem to bother. The padded handle is very comfortable and I really like the feature of a traffic handle.

Overall, I think this is a great set for big and small dogs.

Canibit Venison Sinwes

Canibit Venison Sinews

Composition: 100% Venison Sinews

Analytical Constituents: Protein 87.5%, Fat content 3.5%, Moisture 11.2%, Crude ash 5.6%.

Review: I bought the Canibit Venison Sinews because I thought they would be great for Rocky's teeth. As Rocky is very picky about his chews I was very uncertain whether he would like them.
To my surprise he loved them. There is a tiny bit of venison meat still stuck to the sinew which immediately got Rocky attention. But even after he ate off all the meaty bits, he would still be interested and chews quite often on the actual vension sinew. I am very happy that Rocky likes the Canibit Venison Sinews and will definitely buy them again as I think they are great.
