26 Bars & a Band Snapshot retractable leash review and giveaway

*This is a sponsored post. I received a Snapshot retractable leash for my honest review. All words are my own and not influenced in anyway. I didn't receive any monetary compensation.

26 Bars & a Band was started in 2004 by a husband and wife team who wanted to offer pet owners an alternative to the boring pet accessories on the market. Their first award winning designs was the Avant Garde retractable leash collection. From there they became the exclusive retailers of licensed Paul Frank pet accessories and offered a new collection called "Meet Matte." In 2013 they debuted a customizable Avant Garde series of photo retractable leashes and interchangeable retractable leash shell designs.

I was sent their Just Perfect snapshot retractable leash for Bella and I love it! The first thing you notice is the outside of the case as it has the words to "You are my Sunshine". It brings back a lot of memories from when my mom used to sing it to my brother and I. My husband used it to take her to her first vet appointment and when he came back he told me how much he liked the leash and that he was really impressed. One of his favorite features was the handle because it is easy to grip comfortable on the hand. He said it was the best leash he has ever used.

Another awesome feature is that you are able to add your own picture or a custom design. I decided to go with a 4th of July theme since it is an upcoming Holiday. To make the design all I had to do was use my online scrapbooking software to create a 1 ½ x 1 ½ in picture, print, and place inside the case. To open the case all you have to do is use a credit card and slide it around the inseam. It took me a few tries to get it open, but it didn't take long to put it back together.

The Snapshot Retractable leash retails between $34 and $42 depending on size. 
26 Bars & a Band also offers additional snap cases for $10. A few of my favorites include the Somewhere Up There and My Heart Races.
