On my husband's 30th birthday, we got him a dog. It was perfect, we all saw the Humane Society posts and we just fell in love. He looked just like our dog Rosco, like his twin! And that's hard to find. Turns out it's harder than we thought, cause when we went to adopt him, we realized how completely UN-alike they look. Check them out!
He was such a sweet dog, He liked to play fetch, sleep on the bed, and was great with Rosco. He was just a very kind and loving animal. But since he's new, we didn't want to just let him out to pee and he wouldn't go in the kennel. So we needed to take him for walks. That was fine for a bit, but it gets old fast, so we like to have the kids take turns helping out with that.
Problem is it's winter and there's a whole 2 hours of daylight in the winter. I kid, but there isn't a lot. The kids understandably don't want to take him out at night. That's why this retractable dog leash with light is so perfect. It's got a nice bright light so the dog can be walked even in the dark.
It's got a battery compartment for AA batteries. To be honest, it was hard to open and close, but we managed. It also has a big handle, a reflector on the sides, and the leash is retractable up to 16 feet. It holds dogs up to 50 lbs. We used it on Blue regardless because he is super well behaved. The leash is really just to steer him back inside and to make sure he listens.
It also has a lock on it that will prevent the retractable part from further retracting. When released, the leash can go in or back out.
I think although the quality seems a bit under par, as far as being able to withstand a fall or such... it really is very handy and I'm glad we have it. To learn more, check out SmartRange on Amazon.
