Big-Hearted Pet Retailer Launches New Avant Garde Leash Design

Among the many rewards of dog ownership are the fitness benefits. Betsy Banks, “mother” of six-year-old Truman, says, “I knew that having a dog in my life would guarantee me lots of love. What I didn’t know I was getting was a full-time personal trainer!” Truman, she reports, is an energetic taskmaster. “At his insistence, we walk twice a day, for close to four miles at a time.” This rigorous “training” schedule requires quality equipment. “I can’t tell you how many leashes we’ve been through,” Banks says. “I like the control a retractable leash offers, but finding one that could withstand Truman’s enthusiasm was far more difficult than I imagined possible.”
