If you search for "dog leash hitching post" you find a lot of different kinds of things - and all of them look like something a horse could accidently destroy - and would never keep them in such a spot if they yank if spooked. 

Just like we have "bridleway" distinct from footway, I don't think we should use "Hitching post", as it implies something to be used by hoses. 

Man_made=pet_hitching_point would be my suggestion. 

All the new Lawson convenience stores in Japan have one mounted outside, and many pet parks also have them as well. 

I will look up their brand name to provide more info. I have dejavu about this, as I think I did this before for OSM. 

I also assume there is little overlap between these two features - one meant for horses near a stable and one found at a suburban dog park or busy shop. 

I agree that it might not get used very much at all, but I would separate something meant to secure a dangerous animal the size of a car and and something you walk on a leash and could carry in your arms.
