Our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle wears out her gear, too.
My dear wife Karen decided it was time for a new leash and gentle leader after one too many walks with tangles and tenuous clicks.
The dog was ready for the added foot or two during our first walk in the blocks surrounding A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville. Karen says the leash can be tightened up, but I say what the heck.
This way, Dogamous Pyle is less likely to pull my arm out when she digs into the snow banks.
Wait! That move still allows her to slip the nose loop of the new gentle leader.
But I can easily grab the loop and place it gently back over her nose and continue our walk back home.
Success during the Saturday snow walk.
