The Dog Leash is a grasping aid for the hand designed to provide a dog leash that is easy to release and lock by a person with weak hands or limited manual dexterity. The standard brass snap shackle fitting from a sailboat is fixed to the end of a 3-inch leather wrapped extension. There is a large ring attached to the plunger on the snap shackle for easier grasping. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Andre Paquette for pet owners with reduced dexterity who have difficulty operating the fittings found on the end of pet leashes. This design is intended to more easily secure a pet.
