Reflective Gear for Four-Legged Runners | Stunt Puppy Collar Review

Disclaimer: I received Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo Collar to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

Finding a faithful, consistent and uplifting running partner is no easy task. I know I'm thankful to have mine.

He doesn't say much, is raring to go first thing in the morning, takes about 1 minute to get ready and happens to live in my backyard. It doesn't get much better than that!


Long story short, Saul lost his sight in one eye (see below) after an eye injury and staff infection last summer. Though he is an older dog – 10 years, to be exact – Saul has adapted very well to using only one eye.

He doesn't run into things (often) but I still take extra caution to keeping him safe especially when he joins me on the road.


Because we run together often in the dark pre-sunrise hours, I have been on the hunt for dog-friendly reflective gear for quite a while now. Dogs deserve to run safe too, right?

As a BibRave Pro, Saul received his very own reflective, water-proof and stink-proof Go Dog Glo Collar from Stunt Puppy, a Minnesota brand that produces high quality gear for active dogs.

This collar is made with innovative 3M Reflective Edgeguard® trim which is visible for more than 100 yards, making this the perfect reflective gear for my four-legged running partner.


The reflective properties aren't the only reason I love this Stunt Puppy Collar. Saul loves to run AND swim, so he needs a collar that can keep up.

His regular collars smell nasty after a few months, like soggy, wet dog and river water. Thankfully, along with being reflective, the Go Dog Glo collar is made with BIOTHANE® waterproofing that resists moisture and the "stink" that his regular collars held onto.

It's easy to snap on the leash for each run because of the "Double D-ring" design that allows one ring for your dog's tags and one ring for the leash to attach. The leash D-ring sits on top of the dog's neck and tags hang below, making it more comfortable for my dog and the "jingling" of his tags is more subtle as well.


I am a big fan of the Stunt Puppy Go Dog Glo Collar and Saul clearly approves, too. It pairs perfectly with his Stunt Puppy Hands-Free leash. Stunt Puppy totally "gets" active dogs and their owners!

The Go Dog Glo Collar is available for $26.00 and six reflective color options. Use the code BIBRAVE917 for 20% off your purchase at https://www.stuntpuppy.com/!

B3 Pregnancy: Week 30 Wrap-Up

Baby is the size of ZUCCHINI this week. Fitting, because our kind neighbor brought over chocolate zucchini cupcakes on Tuesday. They were delicious! Besides being extra tired in the afternoon/evening, I'm still feeling great.

This baby seems to be hanging low compared to my last pregnancy, but I'm fine with that as long as he or she stays put until the "full term" mark. My bladder is punched regularly but at least I can breathe!


MONDAY: 

3 mile early morning run with our dog.

TUESDAY: 

Ekhart Yoga's Vinyasa Yoga Flow (17:55) in my own "modified" pregnancy version. As baby is getting bigger, I'm getting more creative with the yoga moves. The belly effects my range of motion a little.

WEDNESDAY: 

3 mile run with walking sprinkled throughout. Running feels great sometimes and then at those other times I just need to walk until baby changes position. It's really all up to baby at this point!


THURSDAY

Off - Visiting my family.

FRIDAY:

Ekhart Yoga's Runners Yoga video (25:28).

SATURDAY:

5 mile run (and walking mixed in) with Saul for the #FRB5MileChallenge. He hung with me for 4.5 miles at least! I have been sticking to the 3-mile distance throughout this pregnancy but 5 miles felt great this morning. More on this Fun Run Box challenge to come later...


SUNDAY:

Off

  1. Wow! I need to look into Stunt Puppy -- especially that leash. I love bringing my dog along on runs. She's great company and she really enjoys running with me. Saul looks like such a sweetie. Pets are so special!

  3. Awwwww, Saul is such a legit companion ;-) Our dog is a Shih Tzu/Lhasa Apso mix (very short legs LOL), so he's a great walking companion, but not so much for running. The Stunt Puppy stuff looks like great products!
