The Accuwalker dog walker time tracker uses an intelligent leash hook to help eliminate guessing when the dog was last walked. A micro switch built into the leash hook recognizes when a leash has been removed or replaced. Using this data, the Accuwalker records and displays the last time the dog was walked and how long the walk lasted. Users can also record memos or instructions with the device.
Since the leash hook records the removal and replacement of the leash, not the hooking of the leash to the dog, users must be on the honor system for the system to provide accurate information.
