Because dogs will be dogs
Dogs love to run and jump. Dogs love to dig. Sometimes they bark and sometimes they don’t come when you call. A BigLeash® can help with that.
S-15 Remote Trainer
Remote Trainers let you send a signal from a handheld transmitter to a receiver collar worn by your dog. The signal gets the dog’s attention and can be used to teach and reinforce training commands and to change undesirable behaviors.
The BigLeash® is a safe and effective training tool with more user-friendly features than other remote trainers. It is the only remote trainer with digital FM technology and exclusive ‘In-Touch’™ two-way communication between the hand-held transmitter and the dog’s receiver collar. A second dog can easily be added and separate settings can be saved for each dog.

"The products are superior. The remote trainer is wonderful, I can visit friends and not keep my dog on a leash. I just purchased a second remote trainer for my son's dog, she comes running as soon as she hears the beep."

Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a remote trainer?
Remote trainers allow you to communicate remotely with your pet. With proper use, they help reinforce your commands and correct your dog’s unwanted behaviors. They provide the ability to train your dog with precise timing and with consistency, both of which are important for effective training.
- How does a remote trainer work?
There are two basic components to a remote training system: a handheld “transmitter” and a “receiver” which is worn on a dog collar.
The transmitter sends a radio signal to a special receiver on the dog’s collar. The receiver on the collar “communicates” to your dog through a set of two stainless steel posts. The posts are part of the receiver collar and they are in contact with your dog’s neck.
You can use the remote trainer to send a wide range of training messages to your pet. Depending on the training situation, the training message may be delivered as:
- An audible tone or a vibration
- A brief stimulation* (1 second)
- A constant stimulation (up to 8 seconds)
The training message from the dog’s receiver collar can get your dog’s attention or distract him from an unwanted behavior. By obeying your obedience command or by stopping the undesired behavior, your dog quickly learns to avoid and/or stop tone or sensation which is delivered by the receiver collar.
* “Stimulation” may also be referred to as “correction”, “training stimulation”, “training correction”, “training signal”; or “shock”
- Will the stimulation signal hurt my dog?
The “stimulation” from the collar is intended to distract your dog by delivering an unpleasant but harmless sensation similar to the static shock you receive touching a metal door knob after after walking across a carpet in your socks.
The BigLeash training collar provides you with multiple stimulation levels. Most dog trainers find they can achieve their desired results using a low intensity stimulation, often barely perceptible to humans. All BigLeash models also include an audible signal which allows you to condition your dog to associate the audible tone with the training correction, thus eliminating the need for the stimulation altogether.
The BigLeash includes both audible and vibration training options.
- What is the warranty on these collars?
- DogWatch, Inc. provides a 2 year limited warranty on the transmitter and receiver for both parts and labor from the date of purchase.
- DogWatch, Inc. provides a 1 year warranty on parts and labor for batteries from the date of purchase.
- Accessories such as chargers and splitter cables carry a 1 year warranty.
- Warranty does not cover repairs or replacement due to misuse by the owner or dog, improper maintenance or lost units.
- Water damage on transmitters that are “water resistant” is not covered under warranty and subject to repair charges.
- The warranty is void if the unit has been altered or an unauthorized person has attempted repair work.
- Warranty is non-transferable.
- What age should my dog be before I can begin using an remote trainer?
The appropriate age depends on the dog and his readiness for training. Your dog needs to have a basic understanding of what is expected of him and he must understand basic commands. Some trainers recommend waiting until the dog is five or six months old; others will train younger dogs if they understand the basic commands.
- What kind of safety features does the BigLeash have?
In addition to having 15 training levels plus audible and vibration modes, the BigLeash can be set to “0” stimulation level so that you will not accidentally send a correction when you have the collar on the dog but are not actively using the trainer. Additionally, the BigLeash includes an automatic shut-off feature that limits the continuous stimulation to 8 seconds.
