Where do fleas and ticks spend winter? I can tell you, on your dog if you are not using flea and tick prevention. Snow and cold are not proper flea and tick prevention. Here in Minnesota, it gets real cold and we have lots of snow. Ticks are rare to find, but fleas are around and proper flea control is very important for dogs and their families! [Read more…]
What does the gift of positive training mean to us at My GBGV Life? For us it means training with a friend. We practice some of our sports like tracking and nose work with friends and we know it is much more fun for Mom to train with other humans. The same applies to dogs working on training. [Read more…]
Proper puppy enrichment is so important in your dog’s development! Puppies grow up fast, and if you miss out on chances to accustom your puppy to the many factors they will encounter in life, she may have trouble being a balanced adult dog. The ages of eight to twelve weeks are especially important in a puppy’s socialization and fear development. Madison is now eleven weeks old. We picked her up at nine weeks old, two weeks ago today.

According to my mom, hands free walking and running with dogs is the absolute best! We spend a lot of time walking and running. Getting the chance to test out the marsboy Hands Free leash set was perfect for us!
I opened the box to see what all was included in the marsboy Hands Free Leash Set. It comes with three pieces:
- Accessory Pouch
- Bungee Leash
- Waist Band
The bungee leash is best used on dogs from thirty to one hundred pounds, and has a few special features. One of the safety features are the locks on the clips. Once you have the leash clipped to the belt and the dog, simply slide the cylinder up which prevents the clip from coming off what it is clipped onto.
Another feature of the bungee leash is the handles. Each end of the leash has a built in handle in the event you need to hold the actual leash.
If you dog enjoys pulling while walking like Bailie does, the bungee leash is perfect! It has a unique blend of strength and flexibility and provides enough “give” to comfortably absorb the force of an excited playful dog all while maintaining enough tensile strength to keep the dog right by your side. The bungee has 16 inches of “spring”, extending to 56″.
Safety is also covered with the marsboy hands free leash. Three seams of bright reflective thread run the length of the leash and belt to provide safety and visibility. We are heading into the dark time of year where visibility is so very important!
The accessory pouch has two pockets and a place for your earbuds to poke out! My mom is thrilled because it is actually large enough to fit in her smartphone! Extra space in the second pocket is perfect for poop bags, keys, treats, or other small items. The pouch slides onto the belt and can sit anywhere on the belt you choose.
What size is the belt? It is a lightweight design with an easy adjusting connector to fit waists up to 42″. The belt also has a D ring that rotates around the belt to keep your dog where you want to have her. The clasps and connectors are durable and lightweight for maximum comfort that won’t slow you down. We all give this hands free walking and running leash our paw print of approval!

Coldwater Spring? No,we are lost once again folks! My mom can get lost walking in a circle. Unfortunately, I was the innocent victim with her this time. Why am I smirking at this sign? Because we wanted to see the sites at Coldwater Spring, but we ended up at Fort Snelling instead. It wouldn’t have been so bad, but we planned a short walk as we had already walked two hours in the morning. Guess what? We added another two hour walk to our day in the heat! Thanks, Mom!

Do you do sports with your dog? We just started doing dog sports about two and a half years ago, and have found it to be such a wonderful thing to do for dogs and their humans. I’ve got 5 reasons why you should give sports with your dog a try. Remember, not every sport is for every dog, you need to test the waters and find sports both you and your dog enjoy. [Read more…]
Barn Hunt sounded like such a good and fun idea, but for me, it was not my thing at all. For starters, it is a naked sport, meaning no collars or leashes. Right there I could sense trouble as I am a respectable hound! [Read more…]
