I assume you're looking for climbing carabiners?

I take the dog for a walk while im out golfing. He likes to run off so I hooked up a carabiner to the end of his leash and loop it around a tree. The small carabiner sometimes gets caught when im clipping it on or off. Im pretty sure a larger one would make things easier.

FYI- It is possible for a dog to accidentally unclip themself from one of those if they wrap the leash around it just right. I had a dog that used to do it every once in a while so I had to start using locking carabiners. Didn't happen often though, and they sure are convenient.

The sportdog 400 works wonders on my mutt. We call it his hearing aid.

I use locking carabiners with my dog, and hook him to this dog tie out stake:

Mine is green, and isn't as big as that one, I believe that one is 24"

I used your carabiner on a tree method for a round or two, but found I wasn't always next to a tree I could clip to. After a round or two of staking him for every shot, he got the idea that he's supposed to stay next to my bag. Now I only take the stake if I know there's a large group going to be at the course.

Wish the fuck heads around here were courteous enough to keep their mutts on a leash.

I can't even count the amount of times I have been driving off then some random stupid dog jumps right up onto the pad causing me to launch my disc nose up.

I would suggest acquiring a canine version of this.

If you promise to to climb with it I've got one (it's had 3 seasons worth, so it's retired.) Probably more like 4 or 5 inches long, nice locking barrel. I'd trade it for a disc or somethin.
The only disc I throw well consistently is my lucky Wizard.

If you're just hooking up the dog while you toss or something then this might work out pretty good:

If they have a minimum order it's pretty easy to find other stuff to buy because they have about any kind of industrial/office supply stuff you can imagine!
