About LeashLocket - The Revolutionary Retractable Dog Leash
Xena the Schnauzer: Dave Marshall's inspiration for a new kind of leash for dogs.
The idea for the LeashLocket retractable dog leash was born during a 4th of July family camping trip to the mountains of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Our favorite neighbors had brought along their Schnauzer, Xena, who wandered into a campsite nearby. The man camping there was no fan of dogs or the six children we had between us, and began yelling to let us know. Our neighbor went to grab her dog, but she didn’t have her leash handy and could only drag Xena by her collar back to our campsite. Later than night Dave had a sudden flash of insight:
Why not have a retractable leash that could be carried right on the dog's collar when you want your leash in easy reach when out with your pet? Then you can just grab it and go when you need it.
And with that moment of inspiration, the LeashLocket adventure began. For the rest of our story and those of other LeashLocket dogs, please visit the LeashLocket Blog.
LeashLocket: An innovation that helps pets in need, one leash at a time!
Dave and Val Marshall pursued their dream, and less than six months later, in December 2009, LeashLocket, Ltd. was formed. Today the company is committed to manufacturing and supplying high-quality, safe pet products. The LeashLocket retractable leash for dogs is our flagship offering, and a portion of the proceeds from LeashLocket sales helps abused, neglected and lost pets through the LeashLocket ASTRO Foundation.
LeashLocket is a retractable leash in a locket that dogs conveniently carry right on their existing collars or harnesses when you want your hands free while out with your dog. This means LeashLocket is always close at hand whenever you’re with your dog. There’s no struggling to catch your pet in unpredictable or dangerous situations and clip on a leash, because LeashLocket is right there on the collar or harness, ready to grab and go when you need it. If LeashLocket is on your dog’s collar, you can’t lose it or leave it behind, and your dog gets to carry the leash for a change!
LeashLocket’s innovative design was developed over a two-year period by a team of pet product experts, making it one of the best-quality and most durable leashes on the market. The ergonomic locket contains a nearly 6-foot lead – the length of standard dog leashes. It comes in two sizes, each of which is lightweight and comfortable for your dog to wear. The small size is designed for dogs up to 55 pounds, while large is suited to dogs up to 90 pounds. It’s currently available in four colors, red, blue, black and pink.
LeashLocket adds instant control, safety and convenience to every walk with your pet. It can also be accessorized with our optional wrist strap.
Our hope is that LeashLocket will make every walk with your dog happier and easier. We would love to hear your stories and experience with LeashLocket, and invite you to visit our Facebook page to share your thoughts and photos with us!
