ILeesh Review

We recently received a box from ILeesh, Inc.; a pet supply company specializes in breed specific products.  Our box contained a retractable leash for Bentley along with a poop bag dispenser and a West Highland Terrier coffee mug.  The boys were so proud to represent their breed.  I’ll turn the review over to them.
Bentley: “Thanks Mom.  I just have to start by saying that this is my first retractable leash.  When we would go out for our walks, Mom always wrapped my regular leash around her hand a bunch of times.  If I decided to stop or run, it would squeeze her hand.  Since she uses her hand to scratch my belly, I didn’t want to cause her injury.  My new leash solves this problem.  She simply decides how much lead she wants to give me, then clicks the brake button and I’m limited to how far I can go.”
Pierre: “It was funny the first time she tried to use it.  Seriously, who else but Gramma reads the instructions for a leash?  *snickers and snorts* At least she knew how to use the handsome coffee mug that ILeesh sent us.  There is one thing for sure, if it has to do with coffee, Gramma is an expert.  Did you see what my mug says?  “I ♥ my Highland Terrier” is written on both sides.  Gramma loves me.”
Bentley: “Of course she loves you.  You’re her granddog.  Grandparents have to love their children’s kids.  It’s like a law or something.  She has one with a Basset Hound on it that says “Proud Mom of Bentley.”  Her friend gave it to her a long time ago.  Maybe that cup is for your mom.  Did you read my leash?  It says “I ♥ my Basset hound.”  That would be me.”  *huge grin and wagging tail*
Pierre: “She loves us both, okay?  Did you know that ILeesh is the first producer of pet accessories to design and manufacture a retractable dog leash with a picture of a real dog on it?  It is the leading ILeesh product.  Did you get my little play on words there?  Leash/leading?  I crack myself up sometimes.”

Bentley: “I got it; you’re just a barrel of laughs.  I did know that it was their biggest selling product.  Did you know that people could order ILeesh products with photos of their actual dog on them?  I mean, the Basset Hound on my leash is very handsome but seriously, my face would look awesome on a dog product.  They sell pillows and I know Mom would love one with me on it.  She is always laying her head on me.  I kind of thinks she considers me a pillow already.”
Pierre: “That could be because you are soft and cushy.  Sorry, my bad!  *Ouch* Why did you punch me?  I was just kidding…kinda.  *Ouch!* Gramma!  Bentley is boxing my head.”
Me: “Would you boys be nice?  Don’t make me turn this review around!”
*Both boys rolling on the ground laughing*
Bentley: “Sorry.  Anyway, back to the review.  The ILeesh Company pays close attention to details in all of the cool pet products that they make.  All of their stuff comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.  They’ll even send a free UPS Ground shipping return label if asked.  My leash came with a year’s warranty in case anything goes wrong with it.  I am pretty sure that won’t be a problem, unless Mom wears it out playing with the button.  She sure has been having fun with it.  I asked her to cut me some slack on our last walk.  I couldn’t even check the neighbors’ pee-mail on the short lead.  I think she was tickled to be able to push the button and give me a few more inches.  I was hoping to get the entire 16 ft., but she pressed the brake button.”
Pierre: “My cup only came in one size.  Your leash comes in XS, S, M, or L. and three color choices.  Yours is black, but it can be ordered in pink and turquoise, too.  The smaller sizes have a 9-foot retractable leash.  I’d look stunning in a turquoise, don’t you think?  Can you front me $24.99 so that I can buy me one?  If you loan me another $18.99 then I’ll spring for you a coffee mug like mine!’”
Bentley: “You know that I charge an extraordinary interest rate, don’t you?  A Basset Hound has to make a living.  I may add a leash for you when I place my next order.  They have lots of great things that I’d like to have.  They sell t-shirts, mouse pads, key chains, reflective decals, and IPhone cases.  Just imagine how much Mom would love having my actual photo on all of those things!”
Pierre: “They also have car air fresheners that would come in handy for whenever you get that certain Hound Dog smell.  I’ll bet Gramma would like a reflective decal of both of us.  How long is it until Christmas?  We can get her a total Bentley and Pierre Christmas!  It’d make her cry.  You know she cries when she’s happy…, sad…, or mad.  Gramma cries over the silliest stuff.  I’m surprised that she didn’t break down when she opened our awesome ILeesh leash and my adorable mug.  And don’t snap at me about the whole smell comment, okay?”
Bentley: “It’s funny that you should mention smelling bad.  After all, it wasn’t I that rolled in something stinky today.  That little maneuver caused us both to get a bath.”
Me: “Boys, you’re getting off track again.  Is there anything else that you’d like to add about our ILeesh products before you give your paw rating?  I shouldn’t have to remind y’all that five paws are the highest and one paw is the lowest rate that you’re allowed to give.  Come on, let’s finish.”
Bentley: “There are a couple of nice things about ILeesh that we should mention.  They support animal shelters and rescue organizations by donating their products and 5 – 10% of their profits each month.  At least 80% of their products are made here in the good old U.S.A.  We always like to buy American whenever possible.  Good grief, where did Pierre run off to now?  Pierre!!  It’s time to rate our ILeesh products.
Pierre: *breathing heavy* I was just in the exercise room pumping some iron.  It won’t be long before I am so buff that you’ll be scared of me.  *pant, pant* Okay, I’m ready.”
Bentley: “We gave my ILeesh leash a prefect five paws.  It is so awesome!  We decided on four stars on Pierre’s mug because the print is over the photo and it makes it a little hard to read.  It does hold coffee great though!”

Coffee Mug 





*We received one ILeesh retractable leash and a coffee mug for review purposes.  Barking from the Bayou was not given any monetary compensation for our honest review.  We only accept products that we believe in and feel confident in recommending to our readers.

Today we are joining our great friends Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a Husky for Thoughtless Thursday.  Our post is only thoughtless on Mom’s account.  Pierre and I thought long and hard on our review.  We hope that you enjoyed it and that you’ll have fun visiting the other thoughtless blogs below.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting! I follow several blogs that are in Blogville, but didn't know how to "move in." After all of the great Pirate Day posts, I got up the nerve to ask my buddies Murphy and Stanley. I've seen quite a few fun posts that are associated with Blogville. I'll follow the others and would love to be able to belong to the community. Thanks again!

Our furiends F&E (above) came up with that most pawfect name! Oh, and another thingie . . . at Christmas time we get 87 million cards from our furiends all over the world! It drives the mailman crazy!

  3. I don't usually like extension leashes, so many people use them incorrectly. I have leash aggrieve dogs and we are often charged by dogs on extension leashes with clueless owners. That said if you use the tool correctly it seem like a great idea and im sure that you do. Ileash looks like a nice product and I like that the brake is easy to operate

  7. Hmmm, I have broken an extension leash in the past...when I see a bunny, all bets are off. The extension leash was for a dog bigger than me too! So we usually stick to a regular nylon or leather leash. That said, I am glad it worked for your crew in the Bayou (BOL - I made a rhyme). Great review and Happy 4th! Stay safe!

  8. Great review from the mouths of dogs which are, of course, more accurate and detailed that human reviews.

  11. Great reviews. Love the turn this review around comment. We used an extension leash when we only had Bailey, but honestly I prefer the traditional leather leash we have. It gives us more control.

    As Frankie said Blogville is a very friendly place. I had been off from Blogging and someone kindly sent me a reminder so I didn't miss the Christmas card exchange, which I really love. It is really what you make of it.

  13. Some doggies are just good doggies and can use those kinds of leashes...I, howevers, am not one of them!! hehehe
    Ma doesn't trust me on one of those cause I am a hyperbutt, and If I see a tree rat or a cat or a doggie that says I gots a fat butt, I pull and bark and do my bestest imitation of a flying squirrel!
    I do loves the mug!! ;)

  17. Awesome! I can't find anything with my breed on it, too rare. I know many people dislike retractable leashes, it takes getting used to for one thing. We use ours when we are out where there aren't any others around and we could just run, but we aren't trusted off leash. For us they are a great tool, but definitely only in certain places at certain times.

    1. Of course, we are NEVER trusted off leash. We run around in our fenced backyard but Mom never lets us run loose anywhere else. ILeesh will put your pretty face on anything. ♥♥♥

  23. Thanks for sharing and the morning chuckle. I'm still nervous about retractable leashes; me and our dogs have been tangled up in them many times on a walk when a dog owner didn't know how to manage them. I used to judge, but I tried one once and although it's not complicated, it took some getting used to so I went back to traditional - not very adventurous over here. LOL
