About RuffGrip

At RuffGrip they make unique pet products that make life easier. Especially for the larger and working dogs but they work well for small dogs too!

In business since 1998, and based in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, RuffGrip started within the equine manufacturing industry to insure the quality of materials as well as the durability of their products. They soon moved over to the pet industry producing some of the toughest leashes on the planet.

“We believe that if you spend your hard earned money on pet products that they should last for years,” said Leslie Munroe, owner of RuffGrip. “Our customers count on us for comfort, quality and strength in our products. Our dog customers range from the three pound Pekingese to the 165 pound Mastiff. We have a money back guarantee that if you don’t like something you purchase, from us, return it no problem. We ca say that because we have only gotten back three leashes in 12 years.”

Dog Songs…

August 1, 2011

Dogs play a huge role in our lives.  We worship the ground they walk on and we honor them in our everyday lives and rituals.  One of the most overwhelming ways we show our gratitude for our best friend is through songs.

Over the next few days I will post a new song to share with you.  I would appreciate you adding your own in the comment section
below.  The only requirement; the song must discuss a dog in it somewhere.

Today’s song is QUICHE LORRAINE by The B-52’s

Denver Dog Works: Camp Works Dog: Indy

July 28, 2011

Client’s Name: Beth L.

Dogs Name: “Indy”

City: Denver, CO

Breed: Potcake

Likes: playing!

Pet-Peeves: new situations, tight spaces, sudden movements

Favorite Toy: Stuffed Lamb

Favorite Treat: chewy rawhides

Favorite Walk: where ever we go!

Best Trick: Camp Counselor “Qyain” says it’s good that my mom found Michele at Denver Dog Works because she can help me figure out the world and not feel so scared. I don’t like it when people walk up behind or suddenly go in front of me too closely – I have nipped and bitten people on their ankles. Michele and Kyle are working to help me gain confidence.

Arrival Story: I first came to Denver Dog Works to learn how to handle anxious situations, boundaries, and to utilize obedience, manners, loose leash walking to be confident.

Bio: I am 1 years old and my mom traveled to the Turks and Caicos Islands to rescue me. You see I’m not a purebred or a pedigree. I’m fun-loving mutt. You can learn more about my breed by clicking on the breed tag above.

Motto: “Around The World”

We proudly feed and recommend
