Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leashes & Double Dog Walker
NEW! Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leashes

NEW! Vir-Chew-Ly Indestructible Leash

The VirChewLy Indestructible Leash is constructed from lightweight, flexible, incredibly strong vinyl coated steel cable with a minimum breaking strength of over 900 pounds. Because dogs don't have the right incisors to cut steel, it is virtually chew proof, break proof and tangle proof. It is also rust and odor resistant. The leash comes with a detachable handle made from extremely strong comfortable 1" nylon webbing. The Walk-n-Lock tie-out feature easily secures your pet to a post or tree.

Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question

Question: Are the training rules you use when raising puppies less strict for 30-40 pound dog that will be a family companion only?

Hi Cindy,

I love your training principles, eBooks, podcasts and videos.

I have encountered a couple of contradictions in the material.

Mostly with meeting people and playing with toys.

Are the rules less strict for non-working, non-agressive dogs? I'm trying to develop a training plan for a medium family dog (30-40 lbs) and I just want to make sure I'm doing a good job without overdoing it.

Thanks Cindy,

Cindy's Response:

I raise all my puppies (family dogs & working dogs) pretty much the same way, but make allowances for each dog based on the temperament, confidence and personality of the pup. I may ease up later on, after the foundation of engagement is firmly in place AND once I know what my end goal with that pup will be (family dog only vs. competition).

I encourage everyone to take the info we offer and use it to the degree that works for them, their situation and lifestyle and most importantly, their particular pup.

You can be as relaxed or strict about any of these things as you wish. After raising lots of puppies and one human kid I can say this with confidence… it’s always easier to be strict at first and then ease up than the other way around.

On Leerburg's Bottle Feeding Puppies Article


I would like to say a massive thank you to you for sharing your hand rearing formula. Thanks to you guys, I have raised over 15 orphan puppies of different ages and breeds. All have grown up thriving and gone to wonderful forever homes. I foster for a rescue in the UK and will always use this formula.

Thanks again
