Say hello to Elizabeth and Raven - two of our Summer 2021 ambassadors.
Elizabeth decided to become an ambassador because of her love of Gooby products. In this video, she is going to share how she discovered Gooby and what she loves about her favorite products.
Elizabeth is a mom of three boys and Raven is a Goldendoodle originally from Utah. Both of them currently live in Ohio.
Elizabeth originally found Gooby products when she was looking for a harness for Raven to use when they went on their walks. They tried several brands but Raven didn't like any of them. "I don't know if they were cutting into her or hurting her, but every time she would see her harness for a walk, she would run away from us. And I thought, 'What dog runs from a harness?' They should run towards the harness knowing that that means they're going on a walk," shares Elizabeth.
The first product Elizabeth and Raven discovered was the Gooby Escape Free Easy Fit Harness. They fell in love quickly added two more to their collection - the Escape Free Memory Foam harness and the Escape Free Sport Harness. Elizabeth loves all three for various reasons. "Each harness has a little bit of a different material - a different padding - that serve a little bit of a different purpose, but we are loving all of them," says Elizabeth.
Elizabeth and Raven also love and use Gooby's 4-foot mesh leash. "It's long enough that we can walk her. She can get to the grass or wherever she needs to go, but she's close enough where we can pull her back into us if we need to," she says. Elizabeth also loves how lightweight the leash is. She shares, "when we are at a park and I wanna let her run loose from me, I leave the leash on her. She can easily drag it on her with her harness."
There are many reasons why Elizabeth loves her Escape Free harnesses. One of the biggest reasons is that when she "doesn't have the tension of pulling her from the leash, the harness doesn't droop down on her." Raven is free to run around without the risk of tripping over her harness. "She can easily leave the harness on without us pulling that tension and run freely and easily with that," says Elizabeth.
Elizabeth and Raven also share their love for other Gooby products. In particular, they love the Padded Vest. Not only is the vest adorable on Raven, Elizabeth adds, "It's super easy to put on because it zips all the way down and she just steps into it."
Elizabeth and Raven decided to become Gooby ambassadors because they "love Gooby's qualities and values and what Gooby stands for."
Elizabeth believes that Gooby makes "high-quality, functional dog equipment that's good for them and good for us." The products are "stylish with beautiful colors and (of course) everything looks great on Raven." She is so excited to be a Gooby Ambassador and looks forward to sharing her love of Gooby products with dog parents everywhere.

[00:00] Hi everyone. I'm Elizabeth, and this is Raven. Raven is a 7-month-old Goldendoodle originally from Utah, and she's about 22 pounds and a size large in Gooby products. First, a disclaimer, I am just a mom of three boys. We love the product and we are an ambassador for the product simply because we love it. We don't get paid for this. And we will give you our honest feedback of what we think about the products that we have received. I originally found the Gooby products because I was looking for a harness for Raven to go on walks.
[00:32] We had tried several brands and she didn't like them. I don't know if they were cutting into her or hurting her, but every time she would see her harness for a walk, she would run away from us. And I thought, "What dog runs from a harness?" They should run towards the harness, knowing that that means they're going on a walk. So we found that the Gooby Escape Free harness first. If you look back at her pictures, you'll see that she has a green one. That was a size small. She has grown out of that and you'll see that my son's dog, Oakley often wears that and is in a lot of her pictures with her.
[01:02] We now have three of the Escape Free series harnesses. This green one that she has on now is the foam, Escape Free foam harness. And we also have the Escape Free sports harness. We are loving all of them. Each has a little bit of a different material, a different padding, serves a little bit of a different purpose, but so far we are loving all of them. We also have the 4-foot Mesh Leash. This was one of our original leashes that we had before we became a Gooby ambassador. And we really love this leash for a few reasons.
[01:33] First, it's only 4 feet long. So it's long enough that we can walk her. She can get to the grass or wherever she needs to go, but close enough, we can pull her back into us if we need to. We live in an area where there's a lot of dogs and she's still a puppy. So, I'm not sure if the dogs are friendly and if I want her up by all the dogs so I can easily get her back to me. It's also lightweight enough that when we are at a park and I wanna let her run loose from me, I leave the leash on her. She can easily drag it on her with her harness.
[02:00] And it's not too heavy, which brings me to another point. One of the reasons why we love the Escape Free harnesses is when we leave them on there and we don't have the tension of pulling her from the leash, they don't droop down on her. So they don't trip her, she can easily leave them on without us pulling that tension and run freely and easily with that. We also, from Gooby, received this, which is the Fleece Vest. We have not tried this yet because it is an Ohio summer here, very hot.
[02:30] But, we'll let you know what we think about that. But we did get to try the Padded Vest. The Padded Vest is adorable on her, super easy to put on because it zips all the way down, she just steps into it. And we did have one cold Ohio morning or a morning that I thought was cold enough and we put it on her to see how she did. She loved it. So that's the Gooby products. Like I said, we became an ambassador for them because we love their qualities and values and what they stand for.
[03:00] They make high-quality, functional dog equipment that's good for them and good for us. And it's also stylish with beautiful colors and everything that looks great on her. So we hope you'll follow along with us as we review the products a little more in-depth and we will let you know what we think. Thanks so much.
