5.0 out of 5 stars Machined quality, not junk like the rest., August 29, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the best 3-way light socket on Amazon. It is very well made, machined from brass, has perfect fitment, and the knob action is positive/distinct. Anything else is just cheap stamped and extruded junk. This I know because I went through a half-dozen of the other kinds before I stumbled on this. If you need a repair kit with wiring, lampshade holder, etc., then get the full kit but throw the cheap socket away and use this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, super accurate, and easy to use., August 29, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an excellent rain gauge that meets the CoCoRaHS standard. It measures precipitation in .01" increments with a maximum capacity of 11". There is a central tube for measuring precipitation up to 1", with the balance spilling over into the larger chamber. To read > 1", you pour out the first inch and then pour water from the larger chamber into the central chamber, an inch at a time. Very easy, very accurate. It's also very easy to mount. The only additional item you need is a very soft bristle bottle brush to keep the central chamber clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great water bottle for your K9's field bag., July 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We carry a pair of these in our dogs' field bag, a bag that inevitably is crowded with collars, toys, treats, training bags, GPS, first aid kit, etc. What makes this water bottle really work for us is that it is collapsible, taking up less space and perhaps more importantly, making it less prone to puncture in the wilderness that is that bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for mom., July 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My 80-year-old mom has significant vision issues and long ago started using the B&L 5x magnifier. It was always her go-to glass for reading the paper or Rx bottles or what have you. Over the years, everyone has bought her various magnifiers and readers but she always had this one at hand. But because she's partially blind, she couldn't find it any longer. So I bought her a half-dozen of her favorite B&L magnifiers and put one in every room and one in her handbag. It's made her life a lot easier. She reads a lot more now, too.


MidWest Side-by-Side Double Door SUV Crate with Plastic Pan, 42 Inches by 21 Inches by 30 Inches

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding SUV / car crate when you need to transport two dogs., July 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We recently added Amber, a new German shepherd pup, to our house as a companion for our 2-year-old GSD, Riley. I previously had a large MidWest single crate in the back of my 2007 Toyota 4Runner (4th Generation) and it worked out quite well for Riley. Now with the second dog, I had to find a solution, and the MidWest Side-By-Side was perfect - this side of $1000. The distance between the wheel well humps was about 41.5" ... the crate is 21" wide ... so I was concerned that a pair would not fit. But based on a prior reviewer's recommendation for a 2006 4Runner, I pulled the trigger and bought a pair of 21" wide x 42" long crates. Needless to say, they fit perfectly. I do wish that MidWest made them longer and taller ... my earlier single crate was about 48" long/deep ... a nice size, and at least 2" taller. The 21x42 does work, but the 4Runner has room for more crate. By the way, Riley is 85# GSD and he can turn around/sit/down easily - but he's about as big as you should do for this crate. Finally, get a rubber mat for the plastic tray provided with this crate - the tray is way too slippery for any animal to be secure in a moving vehicle, unless you are using it for your pet gecko. I went to Tractor Supply and picked up some 1/4" stable mat / flooring and cut it to size with a box cutter. Perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect OEM replacement wing for those epic stochastic fails., June 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Apprentice is a great airplane, rugged, easy to fly, and good looking. Riley, my German shepherd, is a great flying companion ... he runs back and forth across the flying field, following his herding instincts and chasing the plane. He doesn't touch it when it lands, but in the latest case I landed a bit fast and short and he had too much inertia and SNAP goes the left wing and CRUNCH goes the 1.3GHz CP antenna. Since I run a DragonLink receiver, Eagle Tree Vector, Mobius cam, and 800mW 1.3GHz FPV in the Apprentice, I decided I would just replace the wing instead of gluing the 5 pieces back together ... minimize the risk of future failure. The wing set is a perfect OEM replacement and includes all of the bits for your repair.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great healing pro-biotic for your dog recovering from gut parasites., June 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very pleased with the Proviable, a probiotic system prescribed by our vet to help our 14-week-old German shepherd puppy recover from a nasty case of Giardia. This followed the typical Metronidazole/Panacur treatment that cleared the infection but left inflammatory side effects from the bug and treatment. Note that you should not give Proviable contemporaneously with antibiotics as you may kill off the good stuff in the probiotic. Just give the probiotic at an alternate meal. We used about 3 tubes of the gel to get Amber back on track. Note that the cost of Proviable on Amazon was about 1/4 the cost at the vet`s ... hooray for being able to look this up as soon as the vet left the room! Lastly - we are big fans of Bene-Bac, but it wasn't rich enough in microorganisms to help Amber through this malady. The Bene-Bac is much less expensive (about 1/3rd of the cost) but it's a good regular supplement and well-regarded in the German shepherd community. Our 2-year-old GSD Riley gets it 3x/week.


Level 1 Short Synthetic Puppy Soft Sleeve
Level 1 Short Synthetic Puppy Soft Sleeve
Offered by leerburg
Price: $51.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Really well made ... but not thick enough for our working line German shepherd dog., June 20, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a really well-made alternative to the classic jute bite sleeves. The material feels great and our German shepherd puppy immediately took to it. That said, I have to wear a gauntlet-cuffed welding glove inside of it because by 11 weeks, Amber's teeth and puppy-typical lack of bite strength inhibition made her grip easily and painfully felt inside of the sleeve. This is a working-line pup so your mileage may vary. At 16 weeks, I'm getting ready to move up to the next level of sleeve and hopefully won't need the glove inside of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant design = Slacklines are the absolute go-to leashes for our pack., June 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Having two German shepherd dogs since they were pups, I tried several leash styles before falling in love with the Ruffwear Slackline. Being an old alpinist, I have an affinity for webbing and climbing-equipment design, so it's easy to see why Ruffwear gear appeals to me. This Slackline (gray) is the second in the house, with the first one (blue) in great shape after 1.5 years of heavy daily use including many hours of getting dragged behind Riley through field, meadow, beaver pond, and forest (the latter only when the understory is clear so as not to get it hung up). The collar clip is absolutely bombproof. The wrist strap section is nicely padded with what feels like gel pad (or similar shock- and pressure-absorbing material inside of it, and fits the hand nicely. It unhooks so that you can wrap it around a pole or sapling for use as a back leash. The mid-leash length-adjusting buckle is solid and is great when you want to choke up on the leash - you slip your hand below the buckle and you've got a nice shorter leash. If this was deliberate design, it's brilliant. I attach two pics of my pups: Amber in training with the gray Slackline, and Amber and Riley after some hammer-time exercise. Tired puppies make happy owners!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor seal fitment means never invert the bag or else., June 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I do a lot of training with Riley and Amber, our two GSDs. I've been trying to find the right training treat bag, one that has easy access to the treats, holds the treats in the bag when closed, and one that can be properly cleaned so that it doesn't get moldy. My particular item came with a misaligned magnet and the treats simply fell out when the bag got inverted. No joy with that outcome.
