LeashLocket™ Discounted for St. Louis Pet Lover’s Expo on Oct. 29

 

Denver, CO … Visitors to the St. Louis Pet Lover’s Expo on Saturday, October 29 will receive a $5 discount on LeashLocket™, the innovative leash in a locket that lets your dog carry the leash for a change. Those who adopt or chip a pet at the expo will receive an additional $5 off, bringing the leash to just $24.99, LeashLocket, Ltd. President Valerie Marshall announced in the run up to the event.

“We’re delighted to be offering on LeashLocket™ to the general public, in person, for the first time,” she said. “We’ve now launched our website, www.leashlocket.com and LeashLocket™ is available there, but we’re really looking forward to this opportunity to have feedback from pet lovers themselves – to let them try it out and to hear their ideas for accessories and features we can add in the future.”

LeashLocket™ was invented by Dave Marshall, Valerie’s husband, in July of 2009, and has been in development with a team of engineers since then. 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 then went on to the H.H. Backer pet product show in Chicago in October.  The St. Louis Pet Lover’s Expo, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the St. Charles Convention Center, will be the first consumer show featuring  LeashLocket™, and is expected to welcome as many as 17,000 animal lovers.
