Pet accessories specialist Berts Bows has acquired the exclusive UK distribution rights to the Lead Mate safety leash, launching at PATS Telford this month.
The six-foot reflective nylon leash, voted ‘Best Leash of the Year’ by Reviewed.com, is designed to be easy to use even for those with arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, ‘ultra light’ and easily adjustable.
Tewn per cent of all profits will be donated to dog charities.
A spokesman for Berts Bows said there were thousands of injuries treated by NHS every year due to dog leashes.
“Lead Mate eliminates the problems and potential hazards clutching at, or wrapping the dog leash around your wrist or hand, can impose.”
The product comes in five colours and two models, intended to fit either flat or rope leashes.
