Release N Run Top ?'s

Is that a shock collar? - Common questions about the Release N Run

We get a lot of questions and comments about the Release N Run when we are out doing shows, some of them a little crazy but nonetheless we thought we answer some of those questions here on our blog.
  1. Q-Is that Collar/Leash strong enough to hold my dog? A- Absolutely, the collar has been extensively tested in both the field and in the lab with a break strength more than twice the maximum recommended weight, for example the collar rated for 110# dogs is tested to more than 220 pounds. See the last question for more info.
  2. Q-Is that a shock collar? A-No we can assure you that there is no shock collar in the RNR!
  3. Q-Will the handle get caught on something when my dog is running around? A-No the collar was designed so that all but 1/2" of the handle stows in the collar and that the 1/2" part that is exposed is at the top of the dogs neck making it safe from catching on anything.
  4. Q-my dog will chew through the cord? A- yes if your dog chews the leash he will chew through this leash as well. Try sour apple spray to get your dog rid of this habit.
  5. Q- Is the leash strong enough to hold my dog? A- yes this is a repeat of the first question, but we get asked it so much I thought I would address is again. The leash is made of ultrahigh strength Spectra Cord which is extremely strong, 10 times as strong as steel to be exact. This is the same cord that the hand-held retractable leashes use.

Over the years, we've committed to buy our materials from US vendors, make local dealers a priority, keep our production here in Bellingham, Washington, and employ local designers and talent from the Pacific Northwest. And it's been...

A Love Letter To A Dog On Valentine's Day

February 14, 2017

Dear Dog,

It has come to my attention, in this month of love, that before the boyfriends, girlfriends, children, jobs and moves, there was one thing that has loved me through it all: you!

You patiently waited all day for the squeak of the door to open on the first day of my new job. You heavily nosed my significant other as to say "welcome" on our first date. You've laid with me as I cried, licked...
