PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) May 27, 2017
For individuals with disabilities or limited mobility, walking a dog can be a monumental feat. To make it easier for these individuals, as well as the general public, to walk a dog while maintaining control, an inventor from Miramar, Fla., has come up with a solution.
He developed the patent-pending TUGGITT to ensure that the owner has full control over the dog at all times. The unique harness with built-in leash prevents the dog from wandering too far on walks. The invention overcomes the problems and shortcomings of traditional retractable leashes. It makes walking a dog easier and less stressful. The unit saves money with its two-in-one design. It features a compact, sleek, safe, comfortable design.
Furthermore, the accessory is ideal for use by pet owners with disabilities, the blind, the elderly and those with limited mobility. The invention would benefit service-dog organizations and police K-9 units as well. With this harness, police dogs would not be chasing criminals down with a loose leash flapping around, which is a hazard to the dog, police officers and civilians nearby. The TUGGITT would retract on its own once released, thus limiting the liability of a hazardous situation.
The inventor's inspiration drew from his personal experience. "As a dog owner, I was becoming frustrated with having to detach and reattach my dog's leash to the harness several times a day," he said. "This inspired me to develop a safer, better, more secure way to walk a dog that eliminates this annoying hassle and allows the pet to carry his or her own leash at all times."
The original design was submitted to the Hollywood office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
