NEW YORK, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Whitegate PR specializes in public relations in the pet industry and is customizing a national marketing outreach campaign to bring the new Safespot Locking Leash to distinguished pets and their parents.  As a dog owner, one of the most frightening things that can happen is the disappearance of our animal companion. It's important that we keep our four-legged friends safe at all times. The new Safespot Locking Leash by Pawz is crucial to prevent your dog from being stolen.  

Believe it or not, more dogs are stolen per year than bikes. Each year, approximately 2 million dogs are stolen whereas; the National Bike Registry estimates that yearly bike theft is around 1.5 million. Unfortunately, there's a black market for dogs, especially designer breeds or fighting dogs and the horrible act of pet theft is becoming more common in our society. Dogs are stolen and held for ransom, for sale to testing labs, for resale, or to keep. They could also be used as bait in dogfights and killed in cult rituals. It's crucial that pet owners become aware of this dog theft epidemic and take the necessary precautions to protect their beloved canines.

You lock your bike, why not your Beagle?

The steel cable reinforced Safespot Locking Leash is the perfect everyday leash, from dropping off the kids at school to sending a package at the Post Office as well as trips to the coffee shop or grocery store. For some pet owners, running errands with their pups and leaving them in a vehicle or tied to a pole while making a quick purchase at a store may seem normal; however this is when dogs are in most danger of becoming stolen.

Safespot is a fully adjustable collar and lead in one, so there is no need to un-leash your dog at any moment. With a steel cabled core, pet owners will have peace-of-mind on those short occasions you need to leave your dog unattended. The patented design securely locks our canines to an immovable object when necessary or can be used as a daily walking leash without using the lock feature. Learn more at
