One of our new faves at Global Pet Expo 2018 is West Paw’s new collar and leash collection–perfect for helping you and your pet stay healthy and happy!

You know how they say if you do what you love, it doesn’t really feel like work? Well, that’s pretty much my life and particularly this week at the Global Pet Expo! I’ve met so many fantastic people and seen so many amazing products! I am always looking for the best for our readers, but if I am honest? My own furbabies are first who I always have in mind when I am checking something new out.

So let me tell you how much I love West Paw’s new collar and leash collections! Their Strolls line is perfect for everyday use–walks to the mailbox, playdates at the park…that sort of thing. The Strolls Collar line includes the Strolls Collar with hemp, the Strolls Leash with Hemp and the Strolls Leash with a Comfort grip and they’re in gorgeous materials and colors.

I love that West Paw makes eco-friendly pet products, and is a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition–and the first pet product manufacturer to become a certified B Corp and Benefit Corporation. They have a commitment to their people, the environment and their product–so much so that they guarantee every pet product they make. And I’m talking a full refund or replacement of ANY pet product they make if you don’t love it!

That’s an easy guarantee for them when you check out what they make, and especially their newest!

The Strolls Collar with hemp is super soft on your dog’s fur and your hands, and is made with mega-strong eco-friendly hemp that naturally resists odor (like from running around in all the muck like mine do) and I love, love, love the quick connect loop because my 12-year-old golden retriever is still learning her leash manners!

Speaking of leashes…the Strolls Leash with Comfort Grip has a waterproof handle that actually feels good in your hand. It also is made of strong, naturally hypo-allergenic hemp and resists odor. The snap hook that uses brushed zinc is nice and sturdy and there’s even a utility loop you can use to carry accessories or cross-body! The Strolls Leash with Hemp also has a traffic handle that actually controls the leash near the dog’s collar so that your pooch stays safe and close.

West Paw knows that there are many people who like to stay super busy and active with their dogs, so their new Jaunts line is just perfect! These collars are odor-free and waterproof, so they can handle just about any terrain you and your pup tackle. The leash and collar combo are great for jogging or jumping up and down trails and my favorite? They clean so easily with a quick wipe or rinse! They also have the quick connect loop for dogs like my puppy who is a puller, and I love the bright and contrasting colors! They also have the ultra-light buckle with zinc, and it’s clear, these are made to last.

The Jaunts Leash line also has a quick tether and release handle that you can adjust and can be hand-held, worn on the waist or even tethered for quick in and outs on the trail.

The only problem is…I want them all!
