Leashing your pooch in a big city is imperative, that is assuming you don’t want them darting into traffic or chasing down the mail man.  However, training them to adhere to the rule of the lead aren’t as simple as strapping it on.  Most dogs will pull and tug demanding that their owner, which as far as they’re concerned is an equal, should abide by their rules of snifology.  Chances are, though, that if you’re a new dog owner, or don’t have a penchant for laying down the law, you’ll need one of these: the tug-preventing dog trainer.

It’s an ultrasonic devices that attaches between the leash and the dog.  When Rex tugs or suddenly pulls, an ultrasonic frequency is emitted designed to irriate your dog, but is inaudible to humans.  The speaker is situated such that is directs the tone towards your dog’s ears and doesn’t bother other four legged walkers.  In case that doesn’t suffice, there are four different volume levels.  It runs on two AAA batteries.

Hammacher sells it for $39.95.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
