Thursday thoughts with Torrey – StayBoy lock reviewWow, today I get to do my very first, very own product review. Oh sure, I am always lending my opinion on all the toys and treats we get to try. But this time, it’s all about ME!! Mom was contacting by Jim, who has invented a product called the StayBoy lock. Jim sent mom one of the locks to try out. First of all, we rarely walk anywhere that we would need this, but now we have one just in case. The idea behind the StayBoy lock is pretty good. Have you ever been out walking and needed to run into a store super duper fast, like to go potty, or buy a drink? Have you worried someone would run off with your dog if you tied it up outside the store? I would worry that someone would steal me, cause I’m cute like that. The StayBoy lock is like a bike chain for a dog. There is a cable with some soft fabricy stuff on it that goes around the dogs neck and then is adjusted to the right size. Like this. It goes into the combination lock, and then is secure. The pink is my collar, BTW.
Now here is the part about why this is my review. Little Miss Roxy Doodle would have her head out of this thing in 3 seconds flat, no matter how tight it was adjusted. Plus, the lock would be pretty big for a small dog. I am 30 lbs, for size reference.I know I look sad here, I thought we were going for a walk right that very second. Mom said the hardest part was figuring out the way the lock worked, and getting the combination set to something she can remember in her old age. I’m sure dad would have figured it out faster. The package says you can walk your dog with the StayBoy lock, but I don’t know about that. First, we only go walking on a harness, and second, the cable is not very wide and could hurt a dogs neck if they pulled at all. But for a short term solution to running into the store, REALLY FAST, this would work to keep your dog from being dog-napped. Mom said her biggest worry would be, not being able to get the lock off if I was tied up somewhere. (She can be like that sometimes.) Jim has an Indie-GoGo campaign for the StayBoy lock. And since we are big fans of the crowd funding idea in general, we are passing along the info, and link so you can check it out. So I guess in conclusion….wow, that sounded all official didn’t it? This may or may not be something that would work for you and your humans. I told you what we think, now check it out, and decide for yourself. How’s that for an opinion?
