Walking shouldn’t be a drag

Enjoy walking your dog! The SideWalker® Leash Trainer is a unique training collar with a “self-teaching” design that trains your dog to walk side-by-side with you without pulling on the leash. More walking, less pulling, and more time together side-by-side.

SW-5 Leash Trainer


The SideWalker® creates a more enjoyable walking experience for you and your dog. Gently corrects overly enthusiastic leash pulling and helps your dog learn appropriate on-leash behavior. The ‘self-teaching’ design assists in reinforcing appropriate leash training and eliminating excessive pulling. The SideWalker has 5 adjustable settings from low to high plus a vibration option so you can select a setting appropriate for your dog. When the dog pulls on the leash, the pressure of the collar strap on the SideWalker activates either a vibration or a stimulation. The vibration or stimulation gradually increases as the dog pulls and resets when the pulling stops.

5 Adjustable Settings

The 5 adjustable settings include a vibration setting, 3 stimulation settings and a Progressive setting that begins with Vibration and gradually progresses from Low to High if the dog continues to pull.

Progressive Levels

When the dog pulls, the level of the vibration or stimulation (for that setting) gradually increases. When the dog stops pulling, the SideWalker resets to the lowest level for that setting.

Long-lasting Battery

The long-lasting, easy-to-recharge battery typically stays charged for several days.

Lightweight, waterproof

Customer Story

"Max was a nightmare if I tried to run. After reading about the SideWalker collar, I purchased one. One walk and jog later and he stays at the heel position. It's only been one five minute session, but it’s looking good already. A few more sessions and he will be a great jogging companion."
