Kurgo Makes a Quantum Leap in Dog Leashes

    I am a leash hoarder.  We have more than a professional dog walker, but all of them serve different purposes.  I have some cutesy ones, some retractable ones, leather, paracord, and training ones.  We even still have our quick-release short collar from our police K-9 Shepherd.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a leash that does the job of several and still look stylish?  In the words of Santa, “I have just what you asked for and more.  Ho*Ho*Ho!”
   The Kurgo Reflect and Protect Quantum Leash has everything that you’re looking for in a dog-walking product.  When my leash arrived, I wasn’t sure how to use it.  This is because it is unlike all of my leashes.  KURGO has developed the Quantum Leash to extend to a 6-foot long lead.  Nothing new there, but just wait!  
I can also use this leash as:
*3 foot training leash
*Courier bag style/over the shoulder
*Belt/ around the waist for hands-free running or hiking
*Double dog ~ walking two dogs at once
*Tether-style allowing you can attach your dog leash to a pole, bench, or tree (Never leave your dog unattended)
   The secret is in the simple steel carabineer adjustment.  Just unscrew the carabineer and attach it to any of the reflective ribbon loops on the leash.  Also, a comfortable padded “floating” handle moves conveniently to provide the walker with a soft grip no matter the leash configuration you choose.  The strong nylon webbing and reflective ribbons ensure a safe walk in either the day or night.
As with most leashes and products, you can always find new uses for them.  I don’t think I would walk Bentley wearing the leash like a belt.  He makes too many sudden sniff stops.  I do use it belt-style when I am brushing him in the backyard.  He tends to walk and wander as he is being brushed.  I can start the grooming right off the patio and within a few minutes, I am in the far corner of the yard.  This leash keeps him in one spot and frees up both of my hands for brushing and bagging hair.  I cannot tell you how much this helps.  Pierre has been almost impossible to brush outdoors.  I have always needed an extra hand.  My new Kurgo Reflect and Protect Quantum Leash provide that hand.  I successfully brushed him without any scratches on my arms.  (He is not a fan of grooming)
   These collars are very attractive.  They are available in Coastal Blue, Grass Green, and Raspberry.  It was awarded the 2010 Editor’s Choice Award and Dog World Editor’s Choice 2010.  That is very impressive recognition.  You can check out Kurgo’s Reflect and Protect Quantum Leash for yourself here.  We think you’ll love it as much as we do and that is saying a lot!
We received our Kurgo Reflect and Protect Quantum Leash in exchange for our honest review.  Barking from the Bayou received no monetary compensation for this post.  We will only agree to review products we believe in and would recommend to our audience.

   We are at the last day of our Bentley’s Favorite Things Giveaway individual spotlight.  Tomorrow will give you a final look at all the fantastic products some lucky Barking from the Bayou friend is going to win.

Has your dog ever enjoyed a 100% all-natural Jones Chews?  Bentley thinks these just might be the most delectable chew bone ever.  That is even without taking into consideration his friend Chewy’s mom Flea works with JNC.  All of the bones and chews from Jones Natural Chews are made from 100% USA meat products.  You can read our review here.

  Our last awesome prize is a $20 gift certificate to Pride Bites.  As you know,we LOVE our PrideBites toys.  Most of their fun and durable toys are under $10.  Even the hoodies, collars, and other great pet gifts are priced incredibly low!  As always, you can use the code MKCLINTON to save an additional 20%.  You can read our review here.

I am happy to be joining my co-hosts Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a Husky in hosting another fun Thoughtless Thursday blog hop.  If you are a blogger, we would love to have you join us.  Everyone else can enjoy more Thoughtless Thursday blog posts clicking on their photo below.  Either way, have a great time!


  1. That's a really cool leash!! The boys look great as always!

  2. We agree and the boys modelled it well. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. We are collar hoarders, so maybe if we moved in together, Bentley, we would have a huge collection of collars AND leashes! My mom isn't real into leashes. We have quite a few, but nothing real fancy and she would never attach a leash to herself so it would be hands free unless she had a death wish. We are not that well behaved at all! Sounds like a nice leash that you reviewed.

  4. Hi Y'all!

    My Human used a thick, soft rope when she needed to leash Candy (my Chessie big sis). After she passed away, the rope got put away with Candy's beds. I got all new "stuff" when I joined the family, including a 6 foot leather training lead. It's the only leash I've ever had and I'm a senior now. (Course I don't spend much time on a leash).

    Pierre doesn't know what he's missing! Grooming and a good bath are GREAT!!! Silly boy!

    Y'all come on by,

  5. Bentley that is truly an All Purpose Walkin String... We think the idea is FANGtastic. We do that Walkin Around stuffs when mom tries to bursh US outside, too. We think it is FUN to watch her try to keep up with Us... while attempting to brush or comb our furs...

  6. that is one very clever leash for sure - we will have to look into one of those

  7. We love the products from Kurgo!!!! SO cool!!! This leash looks just awesome!!!

  9. That piggy Pride Bites toy looks super fun! *wags* - Gilligan from

  10. Oh, I love your idea that you use it when brushing Pierre. Sheba is a wanderer too and I never thought of doing that!

  11. Cool leash! We only have 2 of them. We have our running leashes (hands free) and our regular ones with the padded handles. Maybe we need more!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  12. The inventiveness of others continues to astound me. What a versatile leash! I see lots of people struggling to control 2 dogs on walks, and they could sure use this.

  13. Cool leash and we love Pridebites too! Happy TT!

  14. If we were doggies, we'd like that leash too!
