A gentle learning method: all commands taught on-leash will be learned in minutes. An interactive solution for serious, caring dog owners: no more yanking and jerking when taking a dog for a walk. Instead, create a long-lasting, enjoyable relationship. A new innovative solution to gain control over your rambunctious pet: a “must-have” for every dog’s owner. A smart electronic leash training device: automatically provides an appropriate correction with perfect timing. Finally: a smart electronic leash device designed for both the dog and its owner. The Walk’r greatly assists anyone working with a dog on-leash, especially those who are overpowered by their dog, both young and old. Even a rambunctious smaller dog can cause its owner problems.
The Walk’r Electronic Leash incorporates three smart components:
A unique sensor that detects the amount of pressure the dog applies to the leash.
An intelligent activator that turns on when the dog pulls extra hard on the leash, but doesn’t turn on during normal activity.
A patented motivational process that simultaneously adjusts the amount of correction to match the dog’s abnormal pull on the leash.
TBI everyday price: $79.95
With no activation button(s) for the owner to operate, the Walk’r automatically provides impeccable motivational timing; this means the dog learns that its own action causes the Walk’r to act. The owner remains the “Good Guy”. This gentle method of learning is achieved from the use of the Walk’r regardless of the:
Age, size or sex of the dog.
Amount of previous training.
Activities in which you relate with your dog – walking, starting obedience training, or enhancing advanced training behaviors.
The results have been phenomenal, signifying that this method is kinder, safer, easier to use, and more humane in developing a purposeful relationship between a dog and its owner. The tug of war with your dog will cease during the first session!

The Walk’r Electronic Leash – Three Dimensional Training
Traditional Leash Training: A two-dimensional method–you and your dog: Everyone uses a leash to assist in training. However, when the leash alone does not achieve the desired effect, trainers will generally turn to one of two techniques.
Physical Force: Many will resort to a variety of collars, everything from choke and slip collars to spike and prong collars. Each still requires your physical force to maneuver the dog into appropriate action. From the dog’s perspective, the focus is on you. Most dogs resist physical force as a motivator to change behavior and will return to the old behavior once you remove the force. (The unique motivator designed into the Walk’r solves the physical force problem).
Electronic Devices: Electronic training improved the two-dimensional training by removing physical force. The remote trainer was developed to more easily assist the dog in learning how to accomplish the desired action, and it proved to be a powerful tool for the trainer.
However, dogs often developed contrary, unintended behaviors with improperly timed stimulation being the most frequent cause of these problems, making the remote trainer a difficult product to use to its highest potential. (The perfect timing of the Walk’r solves this problem.)
Proper placement of the Walk’r (and it is different than all other e-collar devices): It is important to properly place the Walk’r unit onto the dog. The collar strap should always be applied snug but loose enough so that the Walk’r unit can gently slide around the dog’s neck. As you and the dog move through each training exercise, the Walk’r unit must move with the dog, always positioned opposite the direction of the leash pull. For example, when the dog is to your left, the Walk’r is positioned on the left side of the dog’s neck. The dog’s movement toward you releases the pressure and turns off the Walk’r motivator. Similarly, if the dog is to your right the Walk’r unit will slide to the right side of the dog’s neck producing the same results.
Proper introduction to the Walk’r: The best approach to assist the dog in learning the pressure on/pressure off sequence is to put the dog on a tie-out and walk away. As the dog normally wants to follow, he will soon learn the perimeter – the length of the leash. In minutes, he will learn that as he reaches the end of the leash, and if he continues putting pressure on the leash, he will create the first response from the Walk’r. A brief pulse of stimulation will occur, and if he continues to pull on the leash, continuous stimulation will begin and continue until he releases the pressure on the leash. He will even learn that if he releases the pressure quickly when the collar strap begins to tighten, no stimulation will occur. Essentially, the dog trains itself.
You, your dog, and the Walk’r: The Walk’r creates a third dimension in training, allowing you and your dog to concentrate on the training, not focusing on each other. The Walk’r improves the communication link between you and your dog, providing your dog more of an understanding of what is expected and how to achieve success. Existing training methods can’t achieve the behavior link that the Walk’r provides. Through this third dimension, the Walk’r is creating new standards in how you train your dog on leash, and how he learns his skills to respond to your commands.
By using the Walk’r, you still provide the guidance, but the dog’s focus is now on a different motivator, and you become his coach rather than his adversary. The Walk’r creates, for the first time, a distinct and measurable third dimension, providing a powerful learning triangle.
The first dimension: the dog: The Walk’r allows the dog to learn on his own. It lets a stimulus other than you be his focal point. The dog assumes the responsibility of undertaking the correct action, instead of you forcing him or you learning perfect timing skills. For the dog to achieve this, he needs a motivator that he recognizes, but is subtle enough to allow him to learn on his own – the behavior you desire.
The second dimension: you: The Walk’r allows you to be a coach. You become the initiator of each exercise, guiding the dog into the desired position without becoming the focal point. The Walk’r only requires slight leash pressure from you. The motivator encourages the dog to respond to the slight pressure. The motivator will turn off as soon as the dog responds appropriately.
The third dimension: the Walk’r: Think of the Walk’r as your assistant trainer. It becomes an extension of your training, as it always has perfect timing. The dog’s focus will be to move in the desired direction, feeling the motivator and responding to your slight guidance pressure. Your focus is to coach the dog into the desired position, at which time his response turns off the motivator. The Walk’r achieves this encouragement by using guidance learning, a powerful behavioral tool, summarized as pressure on/pressure off. With this automatic perfect timing, the Walk’r exemplifies the principle of electronic guidance control.
