Riley is proud to be Canadian!

You may not know it,  but Get Leashed is a Toronto based company. So it’s always good to know who our local pets are! Canada is so large, but our population is so much smaller than our neighbors that when our Canadian pets show up on the explore page, it’s a milestone! These pets are our locals and easy to bump into! If you’re in Toronto or B.C. then you could bump into these pets too!
