Los Angeles, CA, March 18, 2012 --( 26 Bars & a Band has a new award to add to their collection. For their 10th anniversary, Pet Business Magazine celebrated the industry’s most exciting and innovative products and awarded 26 Bars & a Band the honor in the dog leash category for their Avant Garde Retractable Leashes.

“We are very flattered to receive this special award,” said Sandi Kaneko, President of 26 Bars & a Band. “What makes this most meaningful is that Pet Business is a highly respected trade magazine and only awards one manufacturer per category. For our Avant Garde Retractable Leashes to be the one selected in this category really makes us appreciate the award even more.”
