The LeashLocket is a retractable leash for dogs that the pet carries when he doesn’t need to be restrained.
When attached to the dog’s collar, the LeashLocket works like a standard retractable leash with a 6-foot lead. The difference is when the pet is allowed to run free. Instead of you carrying the leash, the dog does the work, thanks to the special rivet attachment placed on the dog’s collar. Connect the leash case’s magnetic back to the rivet, lock the brake button, and the LeashLocket will remain in place. The LeashLocket is available in small/medium (for dogs under 55 pounds; weighs less than 3 ounces) and large (for dogs up to 90 pounds; weighs less than 4 ounces) in black, blue, pink, and red colors.
The LeashLocket has suggested retail prices of $23.99 for the small/medium leash and $24.99 for the large leash.
