The Mendota Big Dog Walker is the ideal way to humanely take your pet for an outing. For years, Illinois Birddog Rescue has been providing the 6 foot leash with every adoption. Now we have them available in 10 foot lengths for even easier walking or running with your pet. In the modified half hitch position, your dog will not strain with anything around their neck. As a rescue and leader in dog training, we feel the Dog Walker is a kinder method of walking your dog rather than the cruel pinch or choker collar methods. Also because it is not attached to the collar, there is no danger of the collar slipping over your dog’s head.

THANKS for the great walker leads I rec'd this week, don't regret ordering them one bit, they are GREAT!! I've now tried these on all 3 resident dogs (75# GSP, 43# Weim/Husky mix, and my huge Great Dane mix) as well as the scrawny 10 month old Pointer pup foster we had as well as the big male foster Pointer we just got in today. The foster Pointer in my picture cannot use commercial no-pull harnesses as they rub him raw in the armpits. The Great Dane mix is an in-between size on the commercially available no-pull harnesses and I was constantly having to tighten the buckles/mess with it. I LOVE how I can so easily go from dog to dog with them with no adjusting. I'm going to LOVE having these around for transports and dogs here. I often take my fosters to my local dog walking group and often have someone else walk my fosters for me, this is such a great walking method with no worries about a long training session for the user. THANK YOU, I do not think these will be the last ones we will get! Brooke Colley
