BigLeash® 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 LCD display on the BigLeash gives you more information than any other remote trainer. All the information you need is available at-a-glance, keeping you fully informed of the transmitter & receiver status, battery status, training level and your dog's distance from the transmitter.
In-Touch™ Two-way Communication
The BigLeash is the only remote trainer with two-way communication between the hand-held transmitter and the dog's receiver collar. This important feature helps you stay safely connected with your dog via the visual range indicator on the LCD screen that shows you if your dog is going out of range – so you can call him back before it's too late.
15 Levels of Stimulation
The BigLeash Remote Trainer offers 15 training levels (levels of stimulation) to accommodate a wide variety of training needs and pet personalities, but not so many that picking the correct level requires an advanced degree.
4 Signal Options
Select the signal you need, when you need it - audible or vibration, brief or continuous.
Easily activated from the hand-held transmitter, the 4 LED lights are great for walking your dog at night or locating him in the dark.
½ Mile Range
The signal range is up to ½ mile – more than enough to give your dog some room to roam when you go out for leash-free walks.
Two Dog Ready
Easily add a second collar so you can train or manage two dogs with the same hand-held transmitter, storing separate settings for each dog.
Both the hand-held transmitter and the receiver collar have a long-lasting, easy to recharge battery.
Low Battery Indicator
Both the hand-held transmitter and the receiver collar have a low battery indicator to let you know when it is time to recharge.
Lightweight, Waterproof Receiver
Because dogs will be dogs.
Because weather happens.
A unique coating that provides a comfortable and secure grip, while protecting the hand-held transmitter.

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:
1.An audible tone or a vibration
2.A brief stimulation* (1 second)
3.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 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.
