now and forever creationsAs I write this, my stomach churns and I contemplate so much. It’s my first totally negative review. Well, is that how I should truly label it? Maybe, I wasn’t satisfied with the products and I just need to be honest here. That’s my mission “honest reviews”.
It was up to me to step outside my box and accept a product that I wouldn’t normally like these, the screen-printed ones at Now and Forever creations. I’m not aware of the quality of other manufacturers and as I have no basis of comparison so please understand that.
I tried a few things: a dog collar, dog tags, a leash, and a custom dog mat.
The collar is for my bulldog; let me say that it’s probably not fair that it’s for my bulldog since she has such a thick neck. It didn’t hold up to her stature and it faded under use. She’s a big girl and I should probably invest in a good, hearty collar for a sturdy dog. That should be a review all in its own, bulldog products.
The dog tags feel off both dogs’ collars right away. All they did was play. I put them on with pliers like I had their rabies tags in all the past.
The leash wasn’t that bad, it was a normal leash, again it faded after some use, and that was a bit frustrating. They had cute monograms and expressions, so I was a little saddened that I wasn’t able to share for a longer period of time or had to explain every time.
The custom dog mat was very cute, at first. It was a fabric that collected dog hair very easily and the “slip resistant” mat broke apart easily was all over my bamboo floor in no time. I was forever picking up little black pieces of plastic like substance hoping my dogs didn’t eat it.
They also sent me jerky samples from http://www.jerkyuniverse.jerkydirect.com. Sadly, it may sound as if I’m jaded but I’m not. The jerky I sampled was either heavily flavored or it wasn’t enough in the sample packages to get a real feel of how it truly tasted. That was more the company that sends to them then the supplier.
This is a MITK first and I hope a last. I do try to see the good and bad in all. I have no pictures of the products sent to me.
