The Good Hound no pull hands free dog leash on Amazon

But before we make our hands free dog leash and do the giveaway, let’s get into the reasons why a hands free dog leash is an amazingly useful thing to have and use.

The Benefits of a Hands Free Dog Leash

1) Eliminates and prevents your dog from jerking on the leash suddenly and you dropping the leash and your dog running away, your dog running out in the street in traffic or running after a coyote in the woods.

2) It changes the center of gravity to your favor. When a hands free dog leash is attached at your waist via a belt or some type of securing mechanism, you gain a tremendous benefit by lowering your center of gravity and using your hips and your legs as a solid anchor to prevent your dog from pulling you or dragging your around. It’s really amazing to see how your dog automatically learns and adjusts to not getting to jerk you around spontaneously, and becomes a better on leash dog as a result.

3) Frees up your hands for other things like when you’re running errands, carrying in a bag of groceries, stepping out to pick up your mail, or even using your trekking poles when you’re out hiking and camping. Helps when having to go from your car to inside your apartment our house, or when you have to multi-task and put your focus on multiple things at one time. Like checking into a dog friendly hotel. Or if you want to go skateboarding and let your little buddy play the role of locomotive đŸ™‚

4) It’s now easier and quicker to tie your dog up somewhere. For example, when you sit outside at the cafe or restaurant patio and can’t let your dog roam freely. Or if you’re at the campsite and need to secure your dog to the tailgate of your car while you unload your tent and sleeping bags.

Limitations of a Homemade or Retractable Hands Free Dog Leash

A hands free dog leash is not the end-all be-all solution to all of life’s problems. But it’s a good start.

Still, it’s important to remember some safety tips when using any hands free dog leash, whether it’s a DIY homemade version or something you get off Amazon.

1) Homemade hands free dog leashes have no shock diffusion/absorption and are not usually auto-adjustable like the ones you can buy and the one I’m giving away today (practically free) at the end of this video today. This means that your dog is still going to be able to tug you a little and you’ll feel the effects, but it will be greatly lessened by the alteration of the balance of the center of gravity.

2) When you start using a hands free dog leash, you still have to be careful knowing your overall leash radius and switch back to hand control of the leash when:

a. walking your dog around blind corners

b. walking your dog near a street or intersection

c. walking near people and other dogs

Think of it like switching off cruise control when you’re driving and you approach traffic, or an airplane pilot switching off autopilot when flying through a storm. Remembering that you will still need to take manual control of the leash when distance is a factor will keep your dog safe and secure. Then when the coast is clear, you can go back to hands free mode.

How to make your own hands-free dog leash

I’m going to show you how to make your own hands free dog leash cheaply and quickly with a few options depending on what you’re working with already. And I’m going to show you my own variations and how I go hands free mode with my current homemade hands free dog leash depending on what I’m wearing.

First, all you need is the ability to secure the leash to your waist. I do this by attaching a carabiner used for hiking and rock climbing to the end of my normal everyday dog leash. Additionally, if you don’t have a carabiner or something similar, if your leash has a loop at the holding end, you can loop your belt through it. I recommend tying your homemade hands free dog leash to the left of your belt buckle, but that’s me. Try out and see what works best for you.

I then secure the carabiner to my Gerber Bear Grylls web belt and make sure my belt is on tight. Here’s why the Bear Grylls belt is so great. Aside from being very durable, easily washable, lightweight and heavy duty, it comes with this secret compartment where you can put things. Like, say, things that you don’t want other people to find. It also has this mirror so you can shine it a search and rescue plane and signal that you need help, or just more weed.

You can use any belt though, I suppose. I do not recommend tying straight to one of the belt loops in your pants should you not be wearing a belt that day, because a sudden jerk of the leash could result in your dog running off and now a shabby looking pair of jeans.

You can also use your drawstring in your athletic shorts, but be careful with this. Drawstrings are not usually so strong that they can resist a sudden full body tug from a German Shepherd, so your dog could still break the drawstring and run off. Most of the time, this does not happen, but it’s a scenario you have to be mentally prepared for, so just remember either to use a belt or be ready to go off hands free mode at the sight of a cat (if you’re dog is given to sudden fits of cat chasing like my dog is).

It’s pretty simple, but as long as you practice good leash training and safety with your dog, I think you will find many benefits from going hands free with your dog leash during play time with fido.

The Death of the American Middle Class

How much of your savings/investment accounts should be in Gold?

Lynnette Zang said that roughly 20% is optimal, however believing an economic reset to be in the near future for Americans, she now holds around 70% in gold.

Are you saying that we should pull out all our money from our IRA/401(k) and put it into gold?

A reset is different from a market downturn. However right now the reset is more of an urgent issue for the average saver or investor. She cites the Federal Reserve’s strange behavior lately in the headlines, proving without a doubt that interest rates cannot rise significantly without a massive downturn in the overall economy- possibly even a reset, which she is certain will happen, but she is just not sure when that date will be.

Lynnette Zang also criticizes the way investment accounts are legally structured to ensure that investors don’t pull out their funds and seek non-stock or equity based assets. She urges against holding all your money in the system, because when it resets the only thing protecting your wealth is gold, barring a government physical gold confiscation.

Has China already pegged the Yuan to Gold, and will the Petro-Yuan be Pegged to Gold?

Lynnette does not consider China’s currency to be heavily pegged to gold. People have to remember also that the current level of debt to GDP by China far surpasses many other developed nations at 257% national debt to their current GDP.

Are Gold IRAs better than Gold ETF?

Many Gold IRAs allow you to take delivery of the gold and silver when you choose either by having an official custodian watch it, or you can receive it yourself. Therefore it’s a lot preferable to a Gold ETF. That’s why we recommend Regal Assets for answering all your questions and getting started.

Rare or Unusual Coins

The last gold confiscation that happened in the United States was in 1933. There were some exceptions, i.e. “rare and unusual” coins and physical silver/gold. Therefore you’re probably not going to find a rare or unusual coin easily and you’ll be paying a large portion above spot price. Also, verifying its true designation is going to be difficult and most of the time it’s going to be a crap shoot.

I believe an economic and monetary reset is going to occur according to my gut instinct, but my brain says otherwise

Normalcy bias and people refusing to see the writing on the wall from current events, helped on by a complicit mainstream media which refuses to report on significant economic events worldwide, has insulated the average American to the extent that they are avoiding the cognitive dissonance that comes with a potential massive change in the way of life in America.

There Was A Major Reset Of Gold, But Nobody Is Talking About It: Lynette Zang

Still, she remains pretty uneducated on crypto currency and demonstrates a propensity for wild negative speculation without cause or reason.

Hungary’s Gold Repatriation Further Destabilize the US Dollar

This follows several other European countries choosing to take delivery of their gold to avoid the current fraud that exists in the petro dollar and the London Gold Fix. As we have already established on this website, paper certificates of gold are sold 4x what exists as their underlying asset- physical gold. Therefore, logically you would not want to be the last one to the party to reclaim the gold that the bullion banks have been holding and claims exists.

This comes on the heels of Treasury Secretary Mnuchin in the United States peeking into the famous Ft Knox gold reserves of the nation, while giving the thumbs up suspiciously to reassure the rest of the world that all is well and ok. So far Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia have all made good on the delivery of their gold so that they will have “gold you can hold” as the Western fiat and debt based economic and monetary systems dwindle, and the US stock market sees new lows as the dead cat bounces past its 9 lives all the way down in a worse repeat of 2008.

The London Gold Fix Cannot Last Forever

It’s interesting to note that the Hungarian central bank is choosing to collect its stored gold from the Bank of England where there is not enough physical gold to meet demand in the event everyone who owned paper gold demanded delivery.

While Hungary does not have a lot of gold, this is starting to turn into a trend for countries to be on the right side of the next economic reset. Hungary has become a thorn in the EU’s side as it has chosen to go its own path in how it enforces immigration and bucking the EU-required amount of “refugees” mostly from the middle east. Maybe this is Hungary’s way of striking back against the New World Order and a way to secure its future outside of the paper money system.

It’s no surprise Hungary sees the writing on the wall and has made a move to retrieve its gold.

Precious Metals Could See Another Bull Run Soon

Considering how long gold and silver have hovered at their current support levels for the last 3 years without losing much of their gains, we believe that metals are simply waiting for their breakout moment to continue their upward trajectory starting back in the 1970’s when the US dollar was removed from the gold standard.

Once you decide to have gold protecting your retirement account, you’ll sleep better at night knowing you did something to protect your future in the midst of insolvent countries, pension funds, and government issued paper currency.

Bed bugs may be the furthest thing from you mind right now. At least I hope they are. For many people, however, they are indeed top of mind, because many people around the world cannot attain a good night’s sleep due to the tiny parasites which used to be the things of nursery rhymes, but are now the things of nightmares.

Bed bug products can be bought online instead of Wal MartFrom causing people to wake up from itching and scratching, to eventually ending the expectation to have a solid 7 – 9 hours of uninterrupted REM sleep at night, bed bugs are the root problem for a lot of sleeplessness being experienced by folks regardless of location or income.

To make matters worse, they are very hard to kill. And this is exactly why I wanted to give a short list of facts to help people out there get rid of bedbugs.

Bed bugs treatment

Bed Bugs treatment starts by tidying up your home and vacuuming the seams and cracks of your mattress, box spring, carpet, bedroom, sofa, and anywhere else something could be hiding near your sleep area.

Bed bugs signs

The first bed bugs signs are usually bites. When people notice bed bug bites they usually assume spiders, mosquitoes, rashes, etc. and this loses valuable time.

Check to make sure you’re not dealing with just dust mites, which are not visible to the human eye and cause an itchy red rash all the same, just in a different way. This YouTube video on dust mites and bed bugs explains the differences, but how interestingly enough the strategy for elimination is strikingly similar.

Bed bugs bites

Bed bugs bites are normally very small, red, and in large groupings. For instance, bed bugs seem to love the neck and face area and will leave a cluster of 10 – 20 bites when they decide to stop for dinner. These bites often turn into large red rashes on the skin and when people scratch them, it can turn into skin damage.

Bed bugs symptoms

Bed bugs symptoms, aside from the bites, include clusters of black specks and tiny black dots in and around the mattress seams and between the box spring. You may also find areas of splotchy brown, red, and black along with the shells of bed bugs when they shed their old skin, as well as egg casings. This is usually where the bedbugs congregate during the wee hours before looking for food.

Bed bugs bites pictures

Bed Bugs Bites pictures look like this:

Bed bugs spray
The obvious knee-jerk reaction is for people to look for some type of bed bugs spray. This is because we have been conditioned through marketing as well as other psychological factors associating firearms with killing things, to look for some type of firing mechanism to kill insects on contact. However, this is a futile and illogical endeavor, as this will not kill bed bug eggs or the bed bugs hiding in the walls or between the mattress.

How to get rid of bedbugs

Ultimately, when discovering how to get rid of bedbugs, you will want to avoid the high-priced exterminator who will often expect you to shell out thousands of dollars and even sign onto a monthly contract. You’ll also want to bypass buying products that don’t kill the eggs like bed bug sprays, as well as chemicals that could harm you or your pets.


US Dollar Could Meet Its Demise As Petro-Yuan Goes Online

When the US loses reserve currency status with the US Dollar, it’s going to mean a reduced standard of living for Americans of around 50%, which could begin as soon as March 26, 2018 when the Petro-Yuan comes online. This coincides with the same time that both China and Russia have first-strike hypersonic capabilities.

Bill Holter on the X22 Report Spotlight predicts the US will become a Banana republic once credit dries up and interest rates rise. All that has been propping up the value of the US dollar has been America’s global military presence, pointing a gun at all nations heads to accept the dollar as the US Federal Debt has surpassed 20 Trillion US Dollars and shows no sign of slowing amidst a massive trade deficit and flat wages for the average American worker.

The US Dollar has already dropped about 12% in the last year, and weak economic numbers (the stock market bubble notwithstanding) like retail show that even with the steady increase of shoppers going online for their products and services, the brick and mortar retail pictures sets off some obvious alarms- namely, the massive increase in the construction of Dollar Stores.

Some editors on Forbes has claimed that the closing of Sears and Macys is not a big deal since there are going to be so many Dollar Generals springing up everywhere- which should of course be disagreed with by anyone with an IQ higher than a cantaloupe. But this again shows all the irrational exuberance in the markets, and the economy at large.

It’s times like this that we’re reminded that people who have worked their whole lives to have some type of individual retirement account or 401(k) should immediately begin protecting their ability to retire by considering a gold ira account.

You may not get rich, but you will not likely lose all your eggs from depending on the Western central controlled basket, an empire and an economy teetering on the next positive step by Russia and China and the dying petro dollar.

Until Federal Reserve Exits the Market, Everything is Going to Be Upside Down.

Bad economic news in retail sales for the last 3 months is a sign the economy may be slowing down according to official estimates. Of course we on this blog know the more realistic view on the economy, but even by official standards, retail sales are reflecting a more accurate look at the real economy.

Gregory Mannarino has said the market’s true value is not being reflected in today’s high prices. This is largely due to major institutions and even private entities buying up bonds in the bonds market to keep the entire stock and equities market propped up for the foreseeable future.

Mannarino does not believe the market is going to crash any time soon, mainly based on the heavy amount of manipulation by the Federal Reserve and other central banking institutions around the world. Considering the fact that most of the major world economies have large amounts of debt, it seems to be that this economic illusion could carry on indefinitely- until it doesn’t.

The market is not likely to dive 6,000 points in the near future, because Gregory Mannarino believes that this managed market will remain artificially high due to mid term elections coming up in 2018. There is a lot at stake that he does not believe will allow for a natural market correction. This is also why it’s a safe bet to invest in a Gold IRA today.

Considering the game plan of the Federal Reserve went from 0% interest rates to 3 rounds of Quantitative Easing, loosening the rules on company stock share buybacks, and a military budget at nearly a Trillion USD, it looks like the status quo may be reluctant to allow any type of economic reset to occur in the next year, according to Mannarino.

Time will tell. This is why it’s so important to be prepared today. Will you gamble your retirement away on a stock market which is likely to correct over historic record-breaking all-time highs in the near future? Or will you trust in the people running your government and economy, media and banking systems to their own profits- often at the expense of the average American?

Is Gold The Biggest Fraud In History?

Gold Market Facts

The total amount of gold in the world spans about $8 Trillion USD at present. However, some claim that the amount of existing gold is actually 80% less than what the holders claim exists, which means that it is being traded as 4 shares of imaginary gold to every 1 real ounce of gold.

In effect, the Bullion houses are currently selling gold that does not exist. For 2 decades Morgan Stanley sold off paper shares of metals and charged clients for storage fees, but then would not make delivery when their clients demanded.

Since more gold is being sold than actually exists, it could have dire consequences. Since 4 people can own the same ounce of gold at the same time, none of the investment houses could ever actually deliver on that claim and would cause the companies to go bankrupt.

Presently the world’s currencies are not pegged to gold, that all stopped in 1971. Right now the currencies of the world are pegged to the US Dollar, which Nixon took off the gold standard during his Presidency. It is also believed that gold prices are rigged on the London Gold Fix, created by the Rothschild banking family 100 years ago.

China has officially claimed less than half of what it has supposedly purchased, no doubt attempting to buy as much gold as possible at the lowest possible price while covering up the true value of their holdings for the potential economic and monetary reset that many economists see as inevitable. This is why we strongly urge our readers to convert a portion of their traditional investments into a gold IRA.

He who holds the gold makes the rules. The Western world has reduced its gold and silver purchases as China and India have increased in recent years. It looks like the Western banking cartel is going to run the US dollar into the ground before they allow gold and silver to show its true value relative to the world’s reserve currency.

But once the avalanche starts, there may be no stopping it as Bill Holter and Lynnette Zang have stated recently. No one can predict the exact moment it will occur but people will wake up one day and recognize that 50% of the wealth, prosperity, purchasing power, and standard of living are gone.

By then it’s too late.

Bull Market Coming For Gold? – Ron Paul

On August 15, 1971 President Richard Nixon de-pegged the US dollar from gold which resulted in a chaotic decade. The gold bull market started at the same time and ended in 1979, going from around $75 all the way up to $800. Then at the turn of the decade, it dropped back down to around $270. The gold bull market started back up at the turn of the century where it rose to $1800 and has dropped back down since 2012 to the current price floor of about $1300.

The fundamentals indicate that gold is holding steady and could be ready for another bull market, which if history is any indicator, should rise far beyond its previous highs of $1800. With the fact the US government has manipulated markets, the economy, and the monetary policy in the last 10 years with banker bailouts, stimulus, and zero % interest rates, precious metals are ready to go skyward.

Ron Paul still seems to think gold is a good investment, and so do we.

Crypto currency showing investor sentiment?

Inflation is being seen in the fact that the price of school tuition has gone up exponentially in the last 15 years. Cryptocurrency is also another bellweather of the fact that money is seeking better ground in the midst of historic low volatility in the stock market and drops in the housing market.

The US dollar is on a downward slope which means that since gold is priced in dollars, it is being watched closely for a breakout on the monthly charts before historic investors pour back into their metals positions. This means that a gold bull market could be just around the corner.

With the record high people not participating in the economy and not even being counted as unemployed by official government figures, there remains a large amount of Americans who have themselves been priced out of participating in the economy, which could be another indicator for a downturn in stocks and the overall equities market.

This is why it’s such a great opportunity to invest or rollover to a Gold IRA to capitalize on this materializing gold bull market, especially since the ultimate gold bug himself, Ron Paul, is anticipating this could be the beginning of the next cycle upwards for gold.

How My College Professors Lost their Retirements in 2008

First and foremost, they were all-in the stock market via their 401(k)s and IRAs. They had bought into the fallacy that the stock market was teflon invincible, because no doubt that’s what the mainstream news had told them over and over again.

But it just goes to show you that if “the smartest” people i.e. University professors are capable of losing their life-long retirements thus having to work an additional 10 years just to have enough to finally leave the workforce, then it can happen to anyone who does not prepare accordingly.

To make matters worse, much of the losses from IRAs in 2008 have not recovered.

This is why a Gold or Precious Metals IRA is such a great tax-free way of holding your retirement or a portion of it safely out of the unpredictability of the stock market. Will a Gold IRA make you rich? Who knows, but consider the fact that gold prices historically have only risen, while stocks have risen- and fallen- often without a hint of warning, leaving millions of people reliant upon a measly social security check when they should be enjoying a relaxing well-deserved retirement.

We’re Getting to the End of it – Peter Schiff

The day of reckoning could be closer than people expect, according to Peter Schiff. Donald Trump offered may pain-free solutions to the US economy when on the campaign trail, but the recent US budget is showing that big government spending has not been reined in like many conservatives had hoped. Schiff says the bond market and the dollar could be facing new lows with rising interest rates and unsustainable debt levels.

The consequences of what the Federal Reserve did from 2009 onward was predicted to cause a dollar crisis according to Schiff. All the quantitative easing and zero % interest rates have finally gotten to the end of the road. The stock market, dollar, and bond market (and housing market) are all in a bubble, Peter Schiff pointed out at a recent economic conference in Vancouver.

US Treasuries have recently been downgraded by China because of the fact that they are de facto junk bonds. The US government is not going to be able to tax the average citizen to pay off the federal debt, which is per capita around $62,000. With the dollar losing power and steam, the costs of living are also set to rise which means rises in price for the average consumer.

Federal Reserve will bring more QE when faced with a looming recession

“You can’t create an entire economy based on cheap money” says Peter Schiff. When the Federal Reserve tries more stimulus in the face of potential economic uncertainty, with the dollar tanking and interest rates rising, it could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back because the inability to repay holders of US Treasuries becomes the focal point of the US government.

This type of scenario is likely to happen swiftly and lead to chaos in the markets and the economy. Schiff encourages people to get out of US stocks, bonds, and the Dollar and escape the inflation and devaluation of currency and financial instruments and into things like gold and silver. This is why a gold IRA or 401k rollover is going to be a real retirement-saver for Americans who are smart enough to see which way the wind is blowing before the hurricane comes ashore.

US Economy is a Giant Ponzi Scheme

When interest rates rise, Americans will no longer be able to spend on a debt and credit-based system. Schiff says 70% of the economy is based on Americans spending money that they don’t have. This is why it’s so important for investors and Americans to position themselves to be able to ride this coming transfer of wealth properly without losing everything.
