The DOG-e-walk
If we take a look at the classic
principles of dog training—behavior,
motivation and discipline—it’s clear
that the most successful teaching
methods use a combination of positive
reinforcement and gentle correction to
deter unwanted behavior.
starts pulling on the leash. The more
your dog pulls, the louder the signal
gets. The less your dog pulls, the
quieter the signal gets. After your dog
associates pulling the leash with the
sound signal, it won’t take long for a
change in behavior to occur.
Research shows that self-motivation
in dogs is always stronger than
external motivation. For this reason,
we have to use the dog’s own
motivation and praise promptly for
good behavior. The principle of the
DOG-e-walk is based on a simple
award—the dog can continue walking
on a loose leash.
As you can see, the basis here is the
combination of the sound signal and
the pulling, which is easy for the dog
to understand. Your dog notices this:
I can’t go on a peaceful walk anymore
because I hear an irritating loud
noise. I won’t be able to reach my
destination peacefully. After just a few
days of training, it will be possible to
go on a relaxed walk with your dog.
It’s a matter of associative learning. A
signal is released as soon as your dog

About the DOG-e-walk
The DOG-e-walk trainer is an all-in-one
dog trainer device that uses ultrasonic
waves and natural instincts for a wide
range of applications:
Prevents your dog from pulling on
the leash
Helps you train your dog to sit, stay
and heel
Reduces unwanted behavior (such
as barking)
Helps you communicate with your
Can be used for dog training classes
and agility training
The DOG-e-walk can be used for dogs of
any size and any breed.
Training methods and your dog’s
willingness to learn
How to train your dog
Your dog can be trained two ways:
Using avoidance behavior
This involves confronting your dog
with a situation that it doesn’t like.
Natural instinct tells your dog to
either escape or avoid the situation.
When using the DOG-e-walk,
pressure is intensified more and
more, until the dog reacts correctly.
The pressure is released as soon as
the dog gives the desired reaction.
It would be counter-productive and
confusing to your dog to increase
the pressure when your dog has
given the correct reaction. Always
use the DOG-e-walk appropriately.
A practical example:
A dog leans against a cactus and
realizes right away that it stings.
At the same time, the avoidance
behavior comes into place and the
dog instinctively goes away from
the cactus and the stinging goes
away. If one were to continue to
increase the pressure, it would be
like throwing a cactus after the
dog, even though it is not leaning
against it any more. The dog
wouldn’t be able to understand
this, nor process it.
2. Using the reward method (praising
with ”well done,” “good dog,” etc.)
All dogs want their parents to like
them. The relationship grows the
more attention they get. According
to the reward method, the dog
only receives praise and awards for
good behavior. Unwanted behavior
gets ignored. This method takes a
while and requires a large amount
of self discipline.
Avoidance training—together
with the reward method—lead
to a harmonious life with your
dog. If you follow the steps in
this manual, you will see the first
signs of progress in no time. You
can teach your dog to go on a
peaceful walk without pulling on
the leash!
Dogs respond to both avoidance
training and the positive reward
The DOG-e-walk combines both
learning methods into one.
Things you need to know before
you start training your dog
Settings on the DOG-e-walk
Do you know how sensitive your
dog is? Always begin the training on
Signal Level 1, and only change the
level the next time you go for a walk.
This way you can find out which
signal level your dog is most likely to
react to.
1 – very sensitive dogs
2 – sensitive dogs
3 – less sensitive dogs
4 – least-sensitive dogs
Remote control volume function (+/-)
This enables you to increase or
decrease the volume of the signal
level that you have chosen. This
function is only meant for training
while using the DOG-e-walk as a
remote control, and not during a
walk, when the DOG-e-walk becomes
a part of the leash. The signal
automatically turns itself off after
three seconds. If your dog reacts
immediately, then you can decrease
the volume.
Please note: The speaker gives a
direct signal to your dog’s ear. This is
because the signal doesn’t spread. It
stays concentrated so that other dogs
nearby don’t hear it. If you don’t
direct the signal at your dog, it won’t
be able to hear it.
Using the DOG-e-walk on a leash
To keep things simple, we’re going
to use the command “Heel!” for this
guide. It is the primary command
used to prevent your dog from pulling
on the leash and to keep your dog
walking next to you.
Put the hooks included in the
packet on the DOG-e-walk and
attach the leash on one end and
the collar on the other.
2. Make sure that the DOG-e-walk
is turned off during the first few
walks, so that your dog gets used
to the new weight of the leash and
considers it as “normal.”
3. Make sure that the speaker is
pointing in the right direction (with
the red dog icon pointing toward
your dog’s head).
4. To train your dog with the DOG-ewalk, turn it on using the power
button, ensuring that the signal
level is set to Level 1 on your initial
5. Tell your dog to “Heel!” before it
starts to pull.
6. If your dog starts to pull
despite the command, then
an ultrasonic sound is released
that automatically increases or
decreases according to the pressure
on the lead. The DOG-e-walk
senses when a dog is pulling via a
high-tech measuring system that
detects tension between the leash
and your dog.
7. Pull your dog back immediately
without giving a command.
8. Your dog will react and stop
pulling, as requested. (The LEDs will
not be lit if your dog isn’t pulling.)
9. Praise your dog.
10. As an alternative, you can also give
your dog a treat for good behavior.
Repeat these steps until your dog
is used to your approach and stops
pulling on its leash. If your dog doesn’t
pull on the leash, then the DOG-ewalk goes into sleep mode after three
It is important to continue training
Usually dogs start obeying after the
first few tries. Nevertheless, you should
continue daily training with your DOGe-walk for a period of three to four
Using the DOG-e-walk without the leash
You want to train your dog without a
leash and teach certain commands?
No problem! The DOG-e-walk can be
used off-leash as a remote control
Practice using the “Sit!” command
This exercise is based on the
assumption that your dog is familiar
with the command “Sit!”
1. In order to get the best results,
always position yourself so
that your dog can see you well.
Support your command by
pointing your finger when you say
“Sit!” (or by showing a flat hand
for the “Stay!” command).
2. Turn the DOG-e-walk on.
3. Give the command “Sit!”
4. If your dog doesn’t react
immediately to your command
(within two seconds), then
increase the volume on the
remote control. (You can also
control the strength by watching
the LED display.) Start with a weak
signal strength (where one or two
LEDs are lit).
5. If your dog now reacts to the
signal, then turn the volume off
(no LEDs will be lit).
6. Praise your dog.
7. As an alternative, you can also
give your dog a treat for good
8. If your dog still doesn’t react to
your command, then increase the
pressure by turning the volume up
(where three to four LEDs are lit).
9. Now your dog notices that the
pressure is increasing and that
you want it to sit.
10. Give praise as soon as your
dog reacts positively to your
command. By doing this, you are
encouraging good behavior.
