Silent Dog Tags by Twigo Pet

One of our noise sensitive Dogsized fans recently told us about the Twigo Pet ID Tag, which is a silent dog tag. If you’re tired of hearing the jingle of your dog’s tags or they’re waking up your baby, this is an excellent solution and a nifty little product.

The Twigo Pet ID Tag is soft, lightweight and made out of silicone. They have some really cute designs which you can see at their website: TwigoTags.com. They’re durable, waterproof and easy to clean.

No need to engrave your contact details on this silent dog tag. You can just write it on the back, boil it and after it cools down for about 30 minutes your dog can wear it. The downside is that overtime the ink may fade, but then you can just re-do the write and boil process.

Blown Away by the Flexi Vario Leash

Flexi Vario

At first when I saw the Flexi Vario retractable dog leash at the Global Pet Expo, I thought – geez that looks like a large leash. Little did I know that I was soon to be wowed by this new product. This very nice lady from Flexi, Sylvie Geffrelot, took the time to show me the multiple features the Flexi Vario has. To call it just a retractable leash is a total misnomer.

Poop Bags or Treats

First of all, it comes with a holder, which can be for poop bags or convert to hold treats. The holder can be attached or unattached to the leash.

The handle has an adjustment mechanism which can change the holder hand size to be smaller or larger. A great way to get the perfect fit for you and for anyone else walking your dog.

Inserting the holder

On the side of the leash is an LED light which is also removable so you can take it off during the day and attach it at night. The light is attached via a velcro strip. When you’re not using the light, there’s a thin panel you can attach instead. The LED light has a white front light so you and your dog can easily see the path in front of you. There is also a red back light which you can choose to turn on to make you more noticeable in the dark which can be helpful when crossing the street or in areas with lots of cars. The lights can be switched on and off individually.

Easy belt change

It comes in cord or tape leashes and has a multi-belt linking system so you can attach a soft stop belt or a duo belt (great for walking two dogs at a time) or an LED flash belt. It’s very easy to switch the various belts.

To top it all off, this leash is quite light in weight. I thought it felt much lighter than expected. It also comes in a variety of colors and sizes. So if you’re looking for a multifunctional dog leash, this is ideal.flexi vario

If you’re wondering, we were not paid for this review (we’re not paid for any reviews). We just think this is a cool new innovative product. The Flexi Vario is not yet available in the U.S. and is scheduled to be launched here in June 2014. We’ll keep you posted when/where you can buy it.
