Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9745002A1] This invention is a dog or animal training apparatus (13) which assists in absorbing and transferring the animal's energy so that the full impact is not felt by the trainer/handler (10). The apparatus provides an elastic member (22A) which is connected between the leash/lead (20) and the animal's collar (23A). If the animal leans into the leash (12), the elastic member (22A) pulls back on the collar (23A) to bring the animal back into line. Should the animal bolt or jump, the elastic member (22A) elongates to keep the immediacy of the impact from being transferred to the trainer/handler (10), and to redirect some of the impact back to the animal to pull the animal into proper position.
