Hey, what’s going on out there? This is Jayne with tri-county locksmith and today we’re checking out the Ariat h2o slip-on boot basically the boot. That we had before this was the dinner and the dinner rampant. Wellington did pretty good had about 18 solid months of the boot on my foot and did really well the leather didn’t blow out the only thing that started to happen was the sole of the boot cracked here and on the inside, the gore-tex lining failed back.
You see that once the gore-tex lining fails. They’re no longer waterproof so that means that your feet are didn’t get wet. That’s pretty much the whole point of me having them and paying for the extra the extra money for the waterproof lining. Because the leather itself isn’t exactly a waterproof first thing that we do is? We go ahead and oil the bootup. If you’re not oiling your boots.
You’re just missing them they need to be oiled and this is the best stuff that. I’ve found it’s going to make the leather outlast the boot that’s exactly what happened with the Danner’s is that the soles bear. It’s broke and cracked all that stuff the leather is fine on it. So you know the leather actually outlasted the boot whereas usually. It’s the other way around, more than it also helps with the stitching and all that fun stuff open offs heavy duty LP leather preservative makes the great product for leather so we’ve hit that up with these.
I hit them on they’re brand new and then I hit them once every year. Before the-the winter season, when it gets really wet. So let’s go over some of the things that this has I never thought I would be buying a pair of Ariat zip heads and friends have them. I’ve seen some reviews. They’re just not a dedicated work boot. But they’re trying to move in that direction. So I figured this is a review on my blog.
ARIAT WORKHOG PULLON H2O
It will be boring for me to do the same review on this boot over again. Even though I would definitely buy it again. It’s just boring nobody cares. We already did that? So let’s try something different at the local store. They did have a sale these were on sale. They were about a hundred eighty bucks. So you’re writing them at two hundred dollar price mark. That’s right about where these were and I gotta admit so far.
I’m pretty happy with them I’m really not a fan all the free. You know cowboy looking stuff on here frankly, they do have a model of the h2o boot. That is a darker model that does not have all this on here they did not have it in the store. But you can find that online that would have been my first preference but that’s a style preference. It’s up to you if you like the frilly stuff good find.
Whatever I kind of not that big of a fan of it. But, it’s going to be under a pant leg. Nobody’s going to see it only thing people are going to see is from here down. So that’s where we’re at the leather did darken up quite a bit after? We use the oil but some of the features of this after doing some research Ariat is actually really trying to not be a dress boot so much as for as they are actually trying. I mean there’s still a dress boot and western wear boot. But they actually are trying to get into the work field and work boot field.
They’re actually trying to make some effort to it one of the things that we notice is this right here. This has a three-stage sole has three different compounds of rubber. This is a nice squishy foam. You can see it’s nice and squishy this is nice and hard so it can take the abrasion and the impact of it on the ground and then this provides some cushion for your foot in between that is another different little cushion layer right there and so you’ve got three different.
You know densities of rubber and it actually goes all the way up to here. It’s not only in the heel it actually goes all the way up to here these did not have? So they use all three of these different kinds of rubbers to you know make your foot have a little bit less impact while still trying to provide a durable grippy bottom. You know we’ll see how that plays out. I can say they’re comfortable. I mean I put them right on at the store and I wouldn’t buy them.
If they weren’t any break-in time at all. They’re just they dig fit and just stick to feet like glue and they feel good. I wouldn’t bottom otherwise like I said: I was already hesitant to buy them in the first place just. Because of some of the other reviews that we’ve gotten. But we’ll see how long it how long they last like I said I wear boots. You know except for the two hottest months out of the year, when it’s just too hot and you wear tennis shoes every other day.
I’m wearing these even on the weekends and stuff. So we’ll see how they will see how they fare? You know is going to be in the snow the mud the ice. You know it’s a wet environment and you know in the worst conditions. More than, you know it’s not exactly oil filled work. But you know it’s just I’m fairly hard on boots and if they can last with me for a year or two then they’ve done pretty well.
Pros and Cons of ARIAT WORKHOG PULL ON H2O
If I can get over a year out of a hundred and eighty dollar pair of boots. I’m pretty happy because of this boot most comfortable for me and if you want to learn more information about it, you will find some of the most comfortable work boots at Shoes Cast. That’s just kind of the way that it’s worked for me some of the other things. That they’re incorporating with this too that it really proves.
They’re actually really trying to get into that work boot market is this orange insert. Right here now this orange insert is actually a hard poly or plastic or something like that and it stretches from here all the way up to the tip here and basically what that does is that provides support in this area.
If you’re using these boots to you know dig holes kick a shovel use tools things like that this is going to be your friend it. I’ve already tried it actually works really well. It provides a lot of support and it’s actually started to change the way that. I walk a little bit for the better in all reality. It actually has more of an even-even footprint for me now and that’s kind of strange.
That’s never really happened to me before but it has with these standing on a ladder if your painter carpenter contractor. You know, you’re on a ladder or climbing up and down the telephone pole. Whatever it is that you do that? You’re going to be having something. But the huge difference between these no support right here other than just the river lots of support right here and that was something that really impressed me.
That is kind of turning my opinion around that they’re actually taking this seriously. You know other than that we’ve got a lot of stitching. We’ll see how the weather holds up? You know we know that Danner uses thick premium leather and that’s why their boots last so long will see weather area does that or not? And you know this is where it takes all the brunt of it the abrasions and dirt and cracking and stuff is going to be right around in here on the toe and you know right back here. But there’s no seam on the back one more thing is that where these boots did blow out right in the back right here.
Where your heel sits or your heel slides up and down and they have added some kind of they call it some kind of patented technology. But you can see down in there that there’s a piece of leather right here see if we can see it. There’s a piece of leather on the inside of the boot. So it’s going to take that shocker not too much shock but that’s going to take that rubbing and that abrasion and-and put it on that piece of leather instead of putting it on the gore-tex fabric or the waterproof liner.

This isn’t exactly gore-tex. It’s Arizona Brown but we’ll see how it fares and how it works out throughout the season and you know the laser blaster. They won’t and we’ll do a review in a year or so and we’ll either say that they’re good or they’re garbage. We don’t know yet but this is their waterproof model. They’re h2o and they do have a darker one. I wish it would have got it.
But it is what it is the toes a little pointed on these? You know at least, it’s not the flat. So I really don’t like that? So they’re a little bit different style than what I would normally go after but once again. We’re giving them a shot and we’ll see how they do and we’ll talk to you in about a year or so thanks for reading. Please share this post for me. See you again in the next post reviews.
Hello, Everybody! Today on UnderBoot, we’re looking at the Rambler by errant with this beautiful gum rubber sole and a square steel toe, which was considered the best pull on work boots of 2017.
Something about Ariat Rambler Pull-on Steel Toe
So the first thing you’re going to notice is the gum sole. Is this clear translucent soul and a soul like? This is excellent when it comes to slip-resistant see when it comes to oil resistance fats and acids ideally. Anybody who works in a farm environment or around machinery? Where there’s lots of mechanical stuff going on? When you’re taking apart engines where you’re putting in rods and you’re doing things like that.
This is an excellent soul for you to adds all that they also included, this beautiful square steel toe. Now, air it has pretty much perfected the square oblique steel toe. It’s a lot of room left to right. It’s a lot of room top to bottom and when you slide the boot on. You don’t realize that you have a steel toe on your foot in the shank section. They use that ats fork shank, now these shanks have been proven to be extremely comfortable extremely responsive and they just work out.
When it comes to pulling on boots, now the heel cup nice and tight and like most pull on boots the more time. You spend wearing this boot the tighter and more comfortable this whole section is going to become to your foot now the shaft is a surface sewn shaft all the stitches on the outside. So there’s nothing inside when you slide your foot in and out. There’s no pesky stitch there to get in the way to cause a little discomfort or anything like that.
Pros of Ariat Rambler
Since it’s a single piece leather boot ideally hot weather ideally dry warm-hot weather. It’s not a waterproof boot. There’s nothing in here to stop water from getting through unless you take care of it and you treat it and you put oils into it just to keep water from penetrating. It untoward term exposures, but if you choose not to do anything like that this boot in extremely warm weather.
Because of the single piece leather up top in the shaft section. Because of the lighter weight vamping that they use through the bottom of the boot. It’s going to be excellent in really hot weather, now these PVC soles just by nature are after boulders lots of response. There’s lots of bounce but Eric just didn’t stop with the soul they sent along this 80s insole that has three different types of surfaces to it.
The green section is a gel type material that offers a lot of impact upon the ball your foot and the heel as you’re walking the maroon section. There is a little bit stiffer and a little bit harder adding support and just shape to the inside of the boot. Where your foot sits and the gray section here which runs from the tip of the toe. All the way that heel underneath all of this is the real cushion.
That’s the soft spot, that’s the stuff that does not break down that holds up to long-term use of course. The boot is fully welded so if you needed to have it resold once. You were done with it completely possible, but the other thing. That’s nice about a fully welded boot and I’ve talked about that before is that. You sit on top of the sole. You don’t sit at the edges of the sole so you get more of a comfortable stance.
If you got to stand in one place for a really long time. So you’re working on a piece of equipment. You’re standing over the sole and you got a really nice platform that offers support. Not only to your foot but also to your knees and your lower back size and fit and comfort well armed with that soul armed with this insole. The fact that it’s single piece leather.
It’s going to be comfortable just by design sizes they run from a 7 to a 14 they only make it in a D width. So if you’re an EE it kind of cancels you out, but Eric has a bunch of other boots that they make it extra wide width with square steel toes. So that’s the Eric Rambo Steel Toe in this beautiful brown leather with that beautiful oblique steel toe with tons of space inside there.

Hello, Everybody! I’m Mary Rogers and I get a lot of questions about how to choose the best oven? And today, I will practice the best countertop convection oven review for everybody.
Overview about Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven
This is Cuisinart’s new chef’s convection oven. It’s beautifully designed. You’ll notice that exterior is brushed stainless steel has a nice large grip handle to open the oven. So that you can see inside and you’ll notice inside there’s a pizza stone. Which I’m going to show you how to use them a little bit? It’s 13 inches so you can put up to a 13-inch pie in there and you can also use pizza stones for other things, not just pizza.
You can use it to do like rolls and bread. It’s really efficient and great to get a really great crust on any type of bread. Are you going to bake the other thing? You’ll notice there are multiple slots and multiple positions for your baking rack and with this oven. We give you multiple baking racks. I just want to show you something the musician in the middle here when you close the oven and open it.
It automatically ejects the rack for you when you’re using it. So that’s really nice another thing it comes with a 9 by 13-inch baking and broiling pan. It’s two pieces as you can see very generous and a nine by 13 is a really common large size for any type of baking pan. So that’s a really generous size. If you’re going to do a panel lasagna or a large batch of chicken. It’s terrific has a really nice easy clean interior has an interior light, which you can on which automatically goes on?
When you open it up, but you can also turn it on and off yourself just by pressing this button you also notice there’s a very large display. The unit has eighteen hundred and seventy-five watts of power it also is 0.95 cubic feet it also has 15 cooking functions. Which is terrific plus it has something called a really innovative feature called dual cook and speed convection. Let’s look at the panel here very nice and large clock display here.
This is your selector dial which is going to do all of your functions for you. I’m going to show you how to use that in a minute then you also have your start and stop button here your thirty Seconds button. We’re you can add 30 seconds to a cooking time your convection feature your light like. I mentioned speed convection, which is great because you don’t have to use do any preheating.
When you use that and then dual cook dual click is a great function. Because it allows you to combine two different cooking functions. So, for instance, you wanted to bake something and then broil it. You can actually set the oven so it does both functions and you don’t have to come back and stop and start the oven again yourself. So let’s look at some of the functions on the major panel first you have toast bagel waffle, which is great. If you do frozen waffles?
The next one is traditional to bake royal roast pizza and the pizza function. I’m going to actually use today to make a pizza sandwich. If you’re going to do any kind of heated sandwiches keep warm and also leftovers. I love the leftover function. Because I don’t like to reheat my leftovers in the microwave. So that’s a great function if you don’t want to use a microwave to reheat food. I’m just going to press the start/stop button.
So we get back to a clear panel and I’m going to show you how some of these function works? First, you have toasts so when you turn the dial to toast you press the middle of the dial. Which going to engage your function then it goes to automatically to the number four shade control and you can just step between one and seven and the dial goes both ways. So you can go up or down so to show you pick number four then once again.
It’s going to show you how many slices you’re going to do one two four one two – three – four five – six seven – nine slices and then you can just press and then it’s going to ask you. If it’s frozen when you see that snowflake. If you pick that it’s going to think that you’re doing something. That’s frozen and then you’re going to hit start. It’s going to countdown for you to our next function after a toast.
Let’s just pick one so that you can see let’s do bake and dual cook. The first one you’re going to Jews is baked. I’m going to bake it for 350 let’s say for 45 minutes and you engage it and now I’m going to pick my next functional. It’s going to be broiled at 500 for ten minutes and then you’re going to hit start and that’s really great. Because you pre-programmed everything you picked all your times in your temperature.
You put your food in it’s going to go through the preheating function and then it’s going to start cooking and it’s really great. When you want to do two-step operations and speed convection is basically. You don’t have to like I mentioned earlier. You don’t have to go through the preheat function. What we’re going to do now is? I’m going to actually show you going to set the pizza function up.
Baking pizza with Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven
I’m going to show you how we’re going to make a pizza? So once again press Pizza. I’m going to go on 450. I’m going to do 12 inches and I’m going to do a fresh pizza and have seen how I turn the dial and the snowflake went away. I’m doing fresh and I cook it for 15 minutes and I’m going to get it started. Because it’s going to go through a preheat phase and then while that’s preheating I’m actually going to prepare the pizza.
Now, remember the important thing about using a pizza stone is it needs to be preheated before you actually use it? Because what’s going to happen is when you put the pizza on the stone. The pizza is actually going to absorb the heat from the stone. That’s what’s going to make for a beautifully finished crust for you. So I already prepared this pizza dough so we just have to shape it.
I’m going to move this tray. So that you can see better and one of the things. I want to mention is if you don’t own a pizza peel. There’s a couple of different ways to transfer your pizza to the actual pizza oven after you’ve shaped it. You can use the back of a baking pan put some cornmeal on it this happens to be heat proof. So what I’m going to do is? I already it’s hard to tell, but I already put the cornmeal on top and what you do is just put the cornmeal on and just?
I always like to rub it around to make sure it’s like evenly dispersed and the importance of this is the cornmeal. Because pizza dough is moist the cornmeal is actually like little ball bearings. So what happens is once you get that pizza dough there? It’s not going to stick and it also because it’s like little ball bearings going to allow you to slide it right off that into the oven for when you want to bake your pizza. So here’s our pizza dough. I’m just going to share this.
I’m just going to use my hands today because I don’t have a bowling pin so don’t be afraid to make pizza. It’s such a fun thing to do I’d love to do it at home and it tastes so much better than frozen pizza and doesn’t be afraid some people think that pizza is intimidating. But you know what it’s just flour and water. It’s nothing bad that you can do to it so just you know practice your skills a little bit shape it by pulling on it sometimes.
I find that what really really helps is if you let the pizza rest a little bit it’ll relax and you notice it’s really stretchy. When it’s relaxed it’s a lot easier to stretch so just keep working with this until it’s the shape you want and don’t worry it does not have to be perfect. That’s the one thing I think people get so overly concerned about is perfection it does not have to be perfect and I make pizza all the time.
I love to make it with my nephews. I was going through some old pictures recently and I saw pictures of my nephews who are now 19 and 20 and they were like four and six and we were making pizza. In my first little house that I had so that looks pretty good so what we’re going to do is put it on this stretched out like. I said it does not have to be perfect what we’re going to do is and be creative with the stuff.
If you don’t like tomato sauce don’t use tomato sauce. If you don’t like tomatoes don’t use Tomatoes you can do? There are so many great pizzas. I’ve seen recently like my husband and I had one the other day and it was like lemon and thyme and onions it was really tasty. So just you know get creative with it don’t worry about it. The next thing I want to do is put on? I like to use fresh tomatoes we’re going to put on just some slices of fresh tomatoes like.
I said don’t be worried about being a perfectionist with this still going to taste the same when you’re done put one more spread it out. What I’m going to do is top it with the cheese? Sometimes, what I like to do is bake my pizza? I’m not going to do this today, but just a little tip for yourselves. I like to bake the pizza like halfway and then add the cheese to the top. Because sometimes if the cheese is in there the entire time will get a little brown and depending on how you like it?
You know I just don’t like my cheese on top brownish. So I like to put it in halfway when it’s done. What I’m going to do? I’m going to show you how easily this slides around and if it doesn’t just give it some assistance. What I’m going to do is the ovens not quite preheated? We’re going to wait till. It’s preheated but when it is I’m going to show you how to slide it right into the oven? We’re going to bake that pizza off so our ovens up to temperature and now what we’re going to do is put on our pizza?
I’m just going to pull this out because of the angle. I’m at and get the pizza and really quick and remember what I told you little cornmeal always helps and there we go? We’re just going to push the rack back in getting a little cornmeal in the front, but that’s close it. Let it cook. We’re going to come back and see what a beautiful pie. We made so our pizzas all done the oven turned off.
If you want to know information about Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven TOB-260, you can wacth the video below to reference:
We’re just going to open it. I’m going to use a potholder to pull out this rack. So you can see the beautiful pizza. Now for today, I’m just going to use the tongs and show you what a gorgeous pizza? We made with our chef’s convection oven. I love making pizza and add a little extra flavor. My husband loves basil and I like to put this on it in on the end so it doesn’t turn brown just put a little bit of fragrant basil on the top and there you have it a beautiful homemade pizza.
Hello everybody, and this post I’m going to share with you all what has been the best car vacuum for car detailing. In my professional auto detailing world. Now let’s get straight into it lots of Detailers and welcome back to the Wilson telling blog. My name is Luke Wilson and a cure a professional auto detailer, who wants to become more successful in your business or just car enthusiasts wants to improve your detailing ability then definitely consider hitting that big red share button right below this post.
Best Car Vacuum For Your Car
So here it is everybody, the car is out of the bag the four-gallon rigid vacuum cleaner. I’m going to dive into this puppy and tell you exactly why I love it point by point and why I think? That it is the number one best vacuum for car detailers point. Number one look at how small this thing is? It is tiny not to mention. It has so much suction power, so powerful for such a small machine.
I mean it is literally so small and guesses what it can literally fit in my car come on as a mobile auto detailer check that out. If it fits in your car and not just in your car, but in the back seat and takes up less than even one seat full of room. So not only does the fact that it can sit in my car makes it extremely portable and easy to tote around. But check this out if I’m going to be a mobile detailer working out of my car then something this size allows me to expand my business even further.
Because it allows me to get more tools more products. Because I have more space to fit those things in, so in addition to it being extremely easy to transport extremely small. But also extremely powerful. It has this awesome convenient hole right here in the top right next to the carry handle and this allows me when I’m working and I’m vacuuming and using this and kind of inaction.
I can just throw it right in here into this hole in the top pick up anything else. I need to keep going since I’m shampooing carpets. I can vacuum out beforehand and throw it in the hole start scrubbing start spraying stuff like that I don’t actually have to like worry about specifically setting this in the right place. I can just throw it in and move on now this vacuum is also extremely easy to clean and maintain all you got to do is unclip.
These two clips right here lift this thing off the filters right here everything else goes into the gallons of the four-gallon size bucket right here literally turn. It upside down empty and out pull off the filter blow it out a stick. It right back on and flips these two things back and just like that and you’re good to go the vacuum, also comes with some really great attachments. So the number one that I use is probably this crevice tool.
So the reason I like this crevice tool is? Because it’s so long and so I can get really deep inside those cracks and crevices. But it’s also really skinny and thin and kind of it’s not that wide and so the power of this tool it kind of makes. This such a power even more powerful than what this machine is? Already producing right, because it’s so small the thinner the gap that the air has to come through the more powerful.
Pros of This Car Vacuum?
The suction is going to be so a really huge fan of this crevice tool that it comes with now next it comes with this kind of wide mouth tool and it comes with this kind of bent kind of like this arm reaching tool. This tool is great for pet hair. I don’t know why? I don’t have a good explanation but it really works great with pet hair this one. I don’t use so much but when you’re vacuum out trunks things like that.
It’s definitely a great tool and these are just a couple things that really add some bonuses to this vacuum now as a professional detailer. I tend to be kind of hard on my tools. I tend to kind of when I’m working. I don’t want to spend a bunch of time to have to kind of dilly-dally around. I’m just going fast. I’m moving fast and so this thing has wheels. So it’s got two big wheels in the back and it’s got two wheels.
That will spin kind of 360 degrees in the front so as I’m working and as I’m vacuuming. I don’t have to come up here to the vacuum and pull it to where I am as I’m working with the hose. I can actually just use the hose kind of yank it wherever I need to go. Because of this hose attachment. Number one is extremely durable. Because I actually bought this separate to put onto the vacuum.
So that’s another note if you’re going to buy this vacuum out definitely suggest getting. This really hard plastic hose. Because the soft plastic hose that it comes with tends to get really concave here at the beginning right here at the mouth of the vacuum. Because the suction power is so powerful that actually pulls that plastic in whereas. This is very hard and will hold its shape but more than anything as I’m working.
Because of the wheels on the bottom. It’s very easy for me to actually just drag it wherever I need to go from the tip of the hose right here another great convenience aspect to this is that. This stowaway cord is really easy to wrap up really easy to take off and it’s just in a great place to where. It’s very easy to work with I can unravel some of it. If I want to unravel the whole thing and when I’m done.
I don’t have any of those little knobs and I have to flip up or flip down. I can just literally wrap it around the carry handle just like this pinch the cord at the end and I know that. This is not going anywhere it’s not going to come unraveled. It’s going to stay there until the next time I’m ready to use it and everyone. I can actually speak from experience. Because before I went to the rigid vacuum.
I actually used the shop vac for years and years and years for the majority of my professional auto detailing career. I use shop back and let me tell you something rigid beats shop back on every level the size, the power, the portability, the ease of use the convenience. Not only is this vacuum amazing for beginner Detailers. It’s amazing for expert Detailers it provides all the powerful suction that you’re going to need it done even more than what you’re going to need?
It’s built incredibly durable so this plastic is not just cheaply made. I can drop this thing it’s not going to break. I can have a turn on its side it’s not going to break. I can yank it around from the hose and I know it’s going to stay intact. It’s not going to fall apart on me very well-built machine. Alright everyone so that is the extent of this for the best car detailing vacuum the four-gallon rigid vacuum cleaner.

Hey everybody! Welcome back to my blog. Today I have a special post in a highly requested post to do a post about Walter – my English bulldog. Now he has been trying to escape. But he is obviously as you can see he’s kind of falling asleep so hopefully. I can get through this and he will be present to the whole times but he is totally trying to like leave my side.
So I’ve had a lot of requests and I thought I would do a post about how we take care of our English Bulldogge Walter and just a disclaimer. I am in no way an expert these tips are solely based on our experience with Walter. We’ve had no underdog. I broke with a German Shepherd never an English bulldog Walter was my personal my first dog. This is our experiences and these are the things that we do to maintain a happy and healthy dog.
So tip number one gets pet insurance. A lot of people think that this is a ridiculous expense listen not. If you have an English Bulldog our recommendation is to get pet insurance when you know that you are going to be getting especially a puppy. It’s not super expensive in the grand scheme of things. It will save you money, in the end, it did for us. Now we got pet insurance with the idea that after a year.
If we never use just that we would cancel it. In the first year, we used in all Walters has multiple stomach bacterial infection two cherry eye surgeries bronchitis luxating patella along with any other injuries and the insurance came through and they have covered 80% of anything.
Tip number two: If you’re going to get an English Bulldog. You have to be a cuddle. I mean look at this-this is a normal day. I mean he is so loving he has to be touching. You at all times. I’m pulling him onto me but most of the time he jumps up on the couch usually when I’m working my computer and lies across me on top of the computer everywhere.
He is such a cuddles and he is very affectionate especially with me we have a special bond. I pretty much raised him when we got him Andrew worked and I was at home and so we eyes are supers.
English bulldogs are not as lazy as you think
We don’t love each other so much number three. It’s totally true when you hear that English bulldogs are the laziest dogs super lazy. I mean look at this lazy and Walter about 20 hours of the day. Probably, he is sleeping and like you can tire him. If he’s fighting against you like to get off this couch.
He’ll eventually give up and just end up falling asleep. Because you know that’s what happened. But there are about four hours of the day that nobody really talks about when they or at least Walter are crazy Walter will get four hours of just spurts of energy. He’s running all over the backyards up and down the stairs all around the house chasing the other dog. It is crazy like he goes insane.
It’s unbelievable. I’ve never seen a dog do this especially for how tired and lazy. He is so energetic. It’s a little bit of a misconception.
Snoring and the Gas
They’re always lazy and sleepy mostly true but they have a lot of energy number four another truth about an English Bulldog that you need to get used to is the snoring and the amount of gas that they pass that sounds pretty raunchy.
But it is very true Walter yours so loud like right. Because of his the position that he’s not snoring. But he usually you can hear him from upstairs. If you’re downstairs like it is so loud especially. If he’s like completely on his back but they soar so loud. So if you’re thinking about having your dog sleep with you. It’s something that you need to get used to I got used to it right away and now it when we’re away and he’s not with it.
I have a really hard time going to sleep without hearing his snoring. Because it soothes me the passing the gas thing we actually kind of have figured out for us when he passes a lot of gas. It’s usually a sign that he’s been overfed and when he’s not overfed he actually doesn’t pass a lot of gas but when he does bad? It’s quite embarrassing this has happened multiple times having people over for dinner or to hang out and Walter walks past them and of course, kids are not silent.
They’re quite loud like he will wake himself up. Because they’re so loud. It is hilarious, but it just makes them all the more endearing and so it sounds so gross. But I’m so used to the smell.
Watch Their Weight
Tip number five is to watch their weight and their food Walter has lost 20 pounds. Since we moved to Canada so part of the issue that we noticed when we left Kansas City is? That he had what was called a luxating to tel,l which is very common in English Bulldogs and it’s where the part of their knee is not staying in place.
When we moved we brought him to the vet and he said that it was you know was cool. It was like level 5 or level 4 out of which meant you are highly recommended to get surgery. If you don’t get surgery there their lifespan could be determined or their knee could deteriorate at the end of their life and it just wouldn’t be good. I’m going to follow up the visit to the to our regular event after seeing this specialist about his surgery they just said well in preparation for the surgery.
He should lose some weight we really took that into consideration and we really restricted his food. He’s not underfed. He’s healthy and so he lost 20 pounds and actually the crazy thing is he doesn’t even have a luxating patella anymore. We’ve seen two vets and his kneecap is stained completely in place which means we saved $5,000, Walter. It’s healthier and better than ever when he first was weighed he was about 73 74 pounds and now he weighs 54 pounds and the favorite food of Walter is Taste of the Wild – this is the best dog food for English bulldogs and you can buy it at the website: https://petdt.com/best-dog-food-for-english-bulldogs/.
Cleaner Ears & Skin Fold Regularly
Tips number six clean their ears and wrinkles Walter has this flap. It’s kind of dirty right now under his nose right here that we have to clean out every day. Because it gets filled with dirt and bacteria can grow baking at a hot spot. He has never had one in there but we have to clean that every day and we clean his ears every other day he hates it. It’s horrible. I hate doing it. Because we have to chase him and we hold him down.
Keep Out of the Heat
Tips number seven keep out of heat now as much as well as your loves to play. It’s hard in the summer bulldogs to tend to have a really small sinus cavity Walter tends to actually have the larger one for being an English Bulldog. So lots of English Bulldogs have a hard time breathing and in the heat. Because they’re so heavy and dense they have a hard time cooling themselves off.
Because their nose is hard for them to breathe so in the summer. He doesn’t stay outside for very long most dogs don’t but even our Georgia proportion likes to fly out in the shade for Walter sometimes the heat and humidity. It’s just too much for him and so he has to come inside. So that’s something they have to be very mindful. English bulldogs can over very fast and so you have to keep them in a cool environment for most of the day.
Toys for English Bulldogs
Tips number eight is about toys there has not yet been a toy that Walter has not destroyed Walter literally bites through any toy within five minutes of getting it calms everything. We have looked on amp everywhere for like indestructible toys. They do not withstand Walters’ teeth and I think this is a common thing with the Bulldogs is they just lock their dog onto that toy and they have one mission.
It’s to destroy it and they do I can never get him them. Because I’m paying $20 for a little ball that he’s going to have for five minutes. It’s not worth it at all so anybody has any suggestions for Bulldog worthy toys. Please let us know toys are so important for an English bulldog they need that stimulation. But you need to find something that can withstand the job of these dogs.
Find A Good Training and Dog Boarding
Because they are one tough cookie nine find a good trainer and dog boarder. We have phenomenal trainers that also board and so we take when we go away. Actually, send our dog to them and they train him. While he’s a dog boarding. Because we did I do doggy daycare but one thing that we learned very fast is that it only takes one incident to create a habit in a dog.
Walter is a very obedient and very smart dog. He just picked up a few bad habits from doggy daycare so when we moved to Canada we wanted to get those in line right away. So you found amazing trainers getting a trainer is very important. It’s much better for you and for the dog. Because what they always said is dogs want to make the right choice. They just need to understand what the wrong choices and so with that Walter have been so amazing.
I mean he’s still a puppy he just turned to the training is more about you and how you interact with the dog a lot of issues that were having with Walter wasn’t even with Walter.
It was a way that we were reacting and we were responding to situations and so they were really able to walk alongside us and teach us you know how to work with them and with even more awesome.
They’re actually teaching Walter how to skateboard. So I’m really excited about that because I think that’ll be so much fun.
Keep Your English Bulldog Stimulated
The last tip that I have for you is these dogs they’re smarter than they look these dogs know how to play dumb Walter is the smartest dog. I have ever met but he needs stimulation sometimes. They’re written up is kind of dumb all they do is sleep and eat but note. They’re very smart highly intelligent very food motivated. But they just need stimulation and that’s why obedience is so important.
Because they want to do what’s good these jobs love and crave attention the worst thing and it’s also the best discipline is almost like ignoring him. When he does something wrong because he hates that and he’s very much so affectionate but there’s also when he doesn’t want to do what you’re saying he will not I mean he will but you can tell there’s a lot of willpower in this dog.
I love that these dogs are so cuddly and that they want to be with you. They’re such a great dog phenomenal with kids my parents are foster parents and these Walter loves kids and one day. I caught one of the costly pulling his tail and pulling his ears and jumping on him and just cuddling him and he just lies there which is so amazing. I love to see because I think of having kids in the future and what will Walter be like with them.

Alright, today on my blog. I’m going to address a request from a viewer that I got back in January, and well, it’s June right now so I got to say I’m really sorry it took me this long to get to it. Alright, well today on my blog, we’re at the shipyard, and we’re going to talk about air compressors and pneumatic tools.
Some things you should know about air compressor
There is a serious compressor. So here’s a beautiful air compressor set up. That one’s just permanently mounted in the back of this service truck. You can see that it says thirty gallons. So there’s an engine mounted air compressor, direct-driven on the side of this fairly new Cummins diesel. Here’s a good sized tank on the back of this service truck. Alright now, speaking of air compressors, here’s a couple of “tow behind” air compressors made by the SULLAIR company.
This bigger one over here delivers a hundred and twenty-five pounds of pressure and four hundred and twenty-five cubic feet per minute – which is quite an impressive amount of air. You’d use that for sandblasting equipment or jackhammers – that kind of air operated equipment. When you go to choose best air compressor for you, what’s funny is that the first thing that you’ll see listed about it is the tank size – which in reality is the least important thing to do with the air compressor.
What’s really important is the pump size and the motor size. And the pump will be rated in cubic feet per minute. If you can’t find the rating for how many cubic feet per minute the air pump is going to make then it’s safe to say that you’re going to get three or four cubic feet per minute for every horsepower. A lot of hobbyist machines, the horsepower has been exaggerated by marketing departments in order to sell more.
If it’s a one-ten plugin then it’s not going to be more than two horsepower, otherwise, it will have a two-hundred and twenty-volt hook-up. You know the pressure rating on it again is not that important, they should all make at least ninety to a hundred and ten PSI. Now if you need higher pressure than ninety to a hundred and then you’re going to have to look at a two stage air compressor.
When you have a two-stage compressor you might have as high as a hundred and seventy-five PSI. So the duty cycle of your air compressor is one of the more important things that you can try and find out. The duty cycle is how long it’s rated to keep running during use. So if you have a hobbyist air compressor that’s duty cycle is fifty percent that means that fifty percent of the time you’re using it that motor can be running safely and without overheating. If you exceed fifty percent of the time when you’re in danger of wearing out your pump a lot faster than you had bargained for.
Commercial duty air compressors, on the other hand, have duty cycles of seventy-five percent and even a hundred percent. You don’t even need a tank if you’ve got an air compressor with a hundred percent duty cycle. So if you’re a hobbyist you know fifty percent duty cycle is probably all you need, but if you’re running a shop and you’ve got a lot of guys perhaps you’re going to want to look at something industrial with a seventy-five or even a hundred percent duty cycle.
A five horsepower compressor with a hundred percent duty cycle is going to make more air than a seven and a half horsepower compressor that only has a seventy-five percent duty cycle. If it is for commercial use you really should get as big a compressor as you can afford because you won’t be sorry. So to choose the right compressor you’re going to have to ask yourself what kind of demands you’re going to be making.
Should use air tools?
What are the air tools that you’re going to be using, what applications are you going to be using them for? Are they going to be more than one user at a time? Is it going to be intermittent use or is it going to be the continuous duty? Let’s go open my file folder of owner’s manuals and technical data. OK, this is three cubic feet per minute then just to operate this little right angle grinder. And a right angle drill this time, again, six cubic feet per minute. This little cut-off saw here four cubic feet per minute.
This is an air body-saw it’s basically a pneumatic hacksaw, great for doing bodywork. Six cubic feet per minute for this one. Alright, so this is an air hammer. It’s rated at ninety PSI of course and four point four cubic feet per minute. This pistol grip drill consumes four cubic feet per minute again rated at ninety PSI. Three eights impact gun that’s rated at four cubic feet per minute.
Another style three eights pneumatic wrench again rated at four cubic feet per minute. And four cubic feet per minute for this one as well. As far as my personal impact tools go, this is my heavy hitter and again it only uses four cubic feet per minute. One inch impact gun, you need a really good air supply to drive something like that. OK so now just a couple of drops of motor oil in the end of your tools.
Might be ten w thirty or fifteen forty or five thirty. You know, whatever’s around – straight thirty weight oil. Now I picked this little beauty up for twenty bucks. One gallon tank with a little tiny compressor on the back. Perfect for – you know, inflating bicycle tires or doing cleaning around the shop, that kind of work. You can’t really power any tools with something like this but for the money I paid for it, I don’t expect very much out of it.

You can see I put a quick connect fitting on the end. Quick connect like that so you connect it, there now it’s already part of the system. Just pull back like that, snap it on, pull back and it comes off. So here are examples of three different fitting ends. Anyway, there are all kinds of different fitting ends that you might pick to go with your quick connector and I would recommend that you just look at the place where you work or what fittings came with the equipment you bought and just go with that. So don’t forget to wear your safety glasses and please remember what I always say about power tools – which is “use both hands and both eyes”.
