LeashLocket™ Teams up with Pawpons to Benefit Freedom Service Dogs Dec. 26-31

Denver, CO … LeashLocket™, the first retractable leash in a locket that lets your dog carry the leash for a change, has teamed up with Pawpons on a promotion running Dec. 26-31 to benefit Freedom Service Dogs, a Denver charity training rescue dogs to serve disabled Americans.

“We’ve always had rescue animals in our lives, so this was a natural fit for us,” said LeashLocket President Val Marshall. “We also work with the LeashLocket ASTRO Foundation benefiting pets in need, and this was a great opportunity to learn from another charity focusing on pets.”

For the Pawpons promotion LeashLocket, Ltd. is extending its 2011 holiday special price of $24.99. The promotion also includes a complimentary wrist strap and free shipping, an overall savings of 43% off the LeashLocket™ retail price. To take advantage of this savings, just go to and purchase the LeashLocket™ Pawpon for $24.99.  Pawpons will supply a voucher and code to redeem at, where a portion of the proceeds on every LeashLocket™ sold through Pawpons will be dedicated to Freedom Service Dogs.

“All of our funding comes from the community, and without it we wouldn’t be able to continue to place our dogs with their human clients,” said Freedom Service Dogs Development Director Courtney Fryxell. “Each Freedom Service Dog costs over $20,000 to train, feed and house, and we’re one of the few service dog organizations that not only rescues our dogs from shelters but also gives them to clients at no charge to them.”

LeashLocket™, cooperating with Pawpons and Freedom Service Dogs for the first time, only debuted to the public Sept. 13 at SuperZoo pet product convention in Las Vegas. It’s now the strongest retractable dog leash, ounce for ounce, on the market, featuring a design perfected through more than two years of development and production with pet-product experts. Today it’s available in two sizes directly through The Small size securely holds dogs up to 55 pounds. It weighs just over 2.5 ounces and withstands a pull force of 170 pounds. The Large size is for dogs up to 90 pounds. It weighs just under 4 ounces and withstands a pull force of 280 pounds. Both extend to nearly 6 feet, the length of a conventional dog leash.
