RuffWear has introduced a lockable leash to keep your dog safe on the sidewalk while you’re inside a store shopping. In addition to the lock, the leash has two steel cables running through it so the leash can’t just be cut. It looks and works like an ordinary leash until you use the clever locking system.
I’ve been reluctant to leave my dog, Saffron, tied up outside stores while I pop in to shop because it would kill me if someone took her. And that’s not that far fetched–I’m not the only one who thinks Saffron’s the most beautiful, obedient, sweetest, wonderful dog–she gets a ton of attention when we’re out. Plus, I’ve seen news stories where people have had their dog stolen while they were inside a store. I’d feel safer leaving her for a short time outside a store using this leash.
