Leash Laws

2/26/14 10:05 AM

Are you confused by leash laws? You’re not the only one! Leash laws vary by state, as well as by municipality. Some states require dogs to be on a leash at all times, others are more lenient and still others only require certain breeds to be on leashes. Some laws dictate the length of the leash, others the type of leash. No wonder we are all confused! But, the bottom line is, leash laws are there to protect you and your pooch and hopefully accidents are avoided when the laws are obeyed. They also protect dog owners and non-owners alike. Even though most dogs don’t mean any harm by jumping on others (they’re just excited!) there is still the possibility that an injury can occur, which isn’t good for anyone involved.

Hi fans! It has been a crazy couple of weeks getting caught up after SuperZoo! The show went really well, and in case you missed it, we launched our NEW product the Pocket LeashLocket! We have taken all the fabulous features from our original LeashLocket and made it truly pocket-sized. The leash is still nearly 6 feet long and holds dogs up to 55 lbs. The difference is that there isn’t a magnet, so all of our fans with really small dogs can enjoy the safety, convenience and size of the original without the magnet feature! It’s time to put down the big and bulky retractable leash and pick up the sleek and sturdy Pocket LeashLocket! Check out our video. We are also part of Walmart’s Get in on the Shelf competition; we would love it if you could vote for us!

This product has been in the works for several months now and we think it will be a big hit! Can you guess what it is? We have several hints on our Facebook page so check it out and see if you can guess what it might be! Aside from that we will also have our original LeashLocket as well as a new POP display for our retailers. Things are really picking up around here and just in time for the big show!

Hiking with your Dog

7/9/13 10:25 AM

Summertime is the perfect time to hike with your dog; whether it’s in the mountains, around a lake, or through the woods, it can be a great experience for you and your furry friend! Dog parks are great for dogs in the city, but sometimes it feels great to hit the open trail and let your dog roam a little! LeashLocket is the perfect accessory for your hiking pooch, it allows you to let your dog free, but without the worry that you can’t grab them if you come across any wildlife. Make sure to check leash laws in your area before letting your pooch off leash though!

LeashLocket Goes Global!

2/26/12 4:57 PM

On Sunday nearly the entire LeashLocket team will be headed for Orlando and the Global Pet Expo, and they’re telling us that this year’s convention will be the largest Global Pet Expo ever!

"We are thrilled at the consistent and impressive growth Global Pet Expo has enjoyed over the years. With more exhibitors and booths than ever, and an expectation for high attendance numbers, 2012 is shaping up to be our largest Show to date on many fronts," says Andrew Darmohraj, senior vice president of the American Pet Products Association (APPA), which hosts the Expo. "As the pet industry continues to expand, Global Pet Expo offers buyers the opportunity to see more new product launches than any other industry show. Global Pet Expo is the must-attend pet industry show of the year."

So LeashLocket will be rubbing shoulders for the first time with 890 pet product exhibitors and 2,452 booths during the three-day event, which takes place February 29 - March 2, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center. For more information on what’s there, take a look at the APPA’s press release at https://globalpetexpo.org/press/pressrelease_detail.asp?id=104

For LeashLocket, the Global Pet Expo represents a chance to meet with buyers and distributors from around the world. We’re already starting to have great success with our distributors in the UK and China, whom we met at the 2011 SuperZoo and H.H. Backer shows in the fall. Now it’s time to let the rest of the world know about LeashLocket!

If you’ve only just become aware of LeashLocket, it’s not so surprising. We’ve only been on the market since September of last year, and, in that time, have proven to be the strongest retractable dog leash, ounce for ounce, on the market. Colorado inventor Dave Marshall came up with the idea for LeashLocket while on a camping trip to Glenwood Springs over the 4th of July, 2009. He then spent two years perfecting LeashLocket’s design with a team of 10 engineers and leading pet product experts. Dave and his wife Val, LeashLocket’s president and marketing director, took delivery of their first shipment of leashes in July of 2011.

That first shipment meant LeashLocket could debut at SuperZoo in Las Vegas last September, and since then we’ve been working to build relationships with retailers throughout the US and Canada. You can find the retailer nearest you at the store locator feature at the top of each page here on our website.

The Global Pet Expo also gives us a chance to meet members of the media in pet journalism throughout the world, letting them know about the first retractable leash in a locket that lets your dog carry the leash for a change. If you know any members of the media who might like to review a complimentary LeashLocket, we’ll be happy to send them one. Just write to Margaret Rankin at mrankin@leashlocket.com, and she’ll set it up.

We look forward to seeing our fellow pet product manufacturers, buyers and distributors at this year’s Global Pet Expo. Hey, it’s Florida in the springtime, not bad! A bunch of the LeashLocket kids are coming too, to hang out at the pool while we’re working and for a group trip to Disneyworld – can’t wait!

If, however, you won’t be attending Global this year yourselves and would like more information of any kind on LeashLocket, just let us know at info@Leashlocket.com. We’re happy to help!
