LeashLocket™ Teams Up with Special Olympics for Colorado Polar Plunges

 

Denver, CO … LeashLocket™, the first retractable leash in a locket that lets your dog carry the leash for a change, exhibited at the Chatfield Reservoir Polar Plunge benefiting the Special Olympics on February 11, and will be on hand once again at the Boulder Reservoir Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 18.

“We’re honored to be part of this event, which raises money for such a good cause,” said Valerie Marshall, president and marketing director of LeashLocket, Ltd. “It’s great to get out and meet the members of our community and it’s also just a whole lot of fun!”

LeashLocket™ was invented by Valerie’s husband, Dave Marshall, in July of 2009, and then developed over a two-year period by a team of engineers and pet product experts. Late in the summer of 2011, Dave and Valerie took delivery on their first shipment of leashes, and internet sales commenced on September 1st. On September 13, LeashLocket™ debuted at the SuperZoo pet product convention in Las Vegas, and has been participating in pet product conventions and community events since then.

Over 500 plungers braved the below-freezing temperatures and icy waters at the Chatfield Reservoir plunge, and organizers expect a big crowd at the Boulder Reservoir plunge on Saturday as well. Participants there can win complimentary LeashLockets for their own pets, complete with optional wrist straps. Please come join us at the event! Sign-in starts at 11 a.m. and the plunge takes place at 1 p.m.
