Ruff Grip Leather Collars and Heavy Duty Leashes Product Review
RuffGrip is owned and operated by Munroe Enterprises, located in Blandford, Massachusetts in the foothills of the Berkshires. All the products we design and manufacture are made from the best quality leather. Our top priority is functionality and durability. Quality and excellent workmanship are the reason our dog leashes, dog collars and accessories are so popular. They are all hand made and the majority are drum dyed rather than painted insuring a long lasting finish.
A few months ago we adopted our family dog, Yogi from a humane society that had her fostered. She was previously in a high kill shelter in North Carolina and had been bounced around a lot. When she came to us her manners needed some improvement to say the least. We have a big property with land for her, however we live near a major route with a speed limit of 50mph. When she is in the yard we let her loose, but if we go for walks she is always on a leash.
About 2 weeks after we got her, my husband and daughter had taken her for a walk down the road, for the first time, it did not go well at all. A dog from the neighbors house came charging out at her, scared her so much she slipped her harness and took off. They looked all over for hours. I came home and happened to notice her down the road, as soon as I called to her she ran home. It was scary. At that point I realized 1. We will not walk down that way anymore 2. She needs a better leash, harness and collar. The breakaway collars and harnesses are good for the simple fact that they will open if a dog is stuck or really wants out of it, but that can also be a downfall, as we quickly learned.
Enter the RuffGrip Collar and Leash …
Made from real leather and tough enough to withstand her constant pulling, jerking, hyper activity and all without coming unhooked or slipping.
The RuffGrip Leash has a heavy duty brass clip with padded non- slip handle . The material is made to hold up to the extreme cold and will not crack. These are actually even used by Alaska rescue teams and over seas in Afghanistan. So they are very weather tolerant. I really like how comfortable it was to hold this leash in my hand. RuffGrip also makes a slip version of this which does not have a hook. The RuffGrip leashes come in a few different lengths and styles and start at $12.95.
The RuffGrip Leather collars are what is called “rolled” buffalo leather. I actually had not seen this style before, but I like it. The purpose is to prevent matting of the fur. The rolled collar does not lay flat squashing the fur down on the same spot constantly. Sometimes that can also cause fur loss in the area. I have noticed a huge difference in the way this collar moves on Yogi’s neck compared to a flat one, but without slipping. The collar is made from high quality tanned leather which gives it a really nice look and has sturdy hardware. They come in various sizes and start at $18.49.
Since using the RuffGrip Collar and Leash she has not once been able to slip her collar and I have not seen any cracking in the leather. This is a really great combo, spending the little but of extra money to buy better quality is worth it when it comes to leashes and collars.
