The 'StayBoy Lock' works like a bike lock for your dog to keep your pet from being stolen. StayBoy works as a leash and collar system that protects your pet from any thieves. As a result, you can leave your dog outside without fear of theft.

The StayBoy works by using a combination lock to secure your dog. Each lock is made with vinyl-coated airplane cable that prevents cutting. The collar and handle are covered with fabric to keep both you and your pet comfortable.

Designer Jim Allen created the StayBoy after discovering that the amount of dog theft is steadily rising. According to the entrepreneur, over two million pets are stolen every year and sold to medical labs for a tidy sum. The dog lock is currently available through Kickstarter.
