Do you share dog-walking responsibilities with someone else in your household or with a hired dog walker? How do you know the chore got done? Too Cool Pets has come up with a product named the Accuwalker to help you monitor how much time your dog has spent at the end of his leash.
Here’s how it works: simply hang your leash on the hook attached to the clock / monitor. When the leash is removed from the hook, the unit starts its timer. When the leash is put back, the timer stops and shows the amount of time the leash was used on a large LCD screen.
The unit holds information on the last 40 walks, and you can record a 20-second memo for any last-minute instructions. The unit retails for $24.95, plus shipping and handling.
Seems like a really good idea. The only drawback I can see is that it doesn’t really register the walk, just the amount of time the leash was off the hook. Assuming you are working with responsible people, this would be a good indicator. However, my suspicious little mind suspects my kids would take the leash off of the hook, set it on the floor for awhile, then hang it back up. And I would never know any different!
What do you think? Would this work at your house? Has anyone bought one yet? How did it work? Did you have a good experience with the company?
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
