The dog leash is a device that connects a dog to a harness, but it’s now on the market to replace the harness.
The device costs about $35 and is meant to be used on dogs of any breed.

(Credit: Getty/iTunes)The price of the dog leash has risenWhile it’s unclear whether the price of dog leashed pets has gone up or down, the trend of dog owners having their pets spayed or neutered is spreading.
A recent study of 4,200 dogs found that the average cost for spaying or neutering a dog was $890, up from $632 in the 1990s, according to the Humane Society of the United States.
The cost of the new breed spayed and neutered are more than double what the average American spends on spay/neuter, according the American Veterinary Medical Association.
“There is an incredible gap between what a dog owner is paying for the spay and neuter procedure, and what they are actually getting for the surgery,” said Mark Koller, the founder of DogLanes.
The company says its dog leash clips and dog leash harnesses are safer than other dog harness options and that they are less likely to be stolen.

In 2015, the Humane League reported that there were 572,000 dogs on leash, but that number has since dropped to just about 602,000.

In 2018, the Animal Welfare Institute found that there was a 2 percent increase in the number of dogs on the leash in 2017, compared to 2016.
But even with the rise in popularity, many dog owners still find themselves using a harness for their dogs.
In addition to using a dog leasher, many people also have other ways of harnessing their dogs, such as using a chain, collar or a leash loop.

“You’re not going to be able to do everything that a harness is going to do for you, but you can do a lot of things with a harness,” said Koller.
