About

 We would like to introduce to you to ‘The World’s First Dog Wand’, with the use of pioneering technology, the Bite Release Dog Wand is perfect for everything from naughty puppies to feral attacks and life-saving situations.

 Patented Technology

Bite Release is designed to put an end to all nasty dog bites in seconds using revolutionary new technology. The Bite Release product is a non-invasive, harmless ‘dog wand’, with the potential to save animal and human lives.

This is NOT Electric Shock!

100% Harmless

The wand vibrates - No shocks!

Dog attacks are a danger faced by almost every nation, with UK residents alone falling victim to a shocking 200,000 recorded dog bites every year, in the US 4.5 million dog bites occur per year. This is largely due to the fact that many dogs are left to roam the streets without adequate training. A dog’s fangs are its primary form of protection which means that when threatened or scared, biting is the animal’s default mode of defence.

For decades, the market has been waiting to welcome an innovative product such as the Bite release dog wand. A safe way to protect you and your family from attacks, without harming the animal.

The Bite Release dog wand is suitable for all dogs no matter what size or breed.

The Bite Release wand is perfectly safe to use on inquisitive puppies and feral dogs alike. For owners wishing to instil good behavioural habits in pets from a young age, Bite Release is the ideal training tool. It helps to make sure they don’t develop a taste for sinking their teeth into skin, furniture, slippers and fellow pets!

With the Bite Release Dog Wand at hand, owners of playful puppies can stop gnawing, nibbling and nipping within a few clicks of the button. When applied to puppies, they’ll quickly learn that biting is unacceptable, and also when combining the use of the dog wand with their favourite toy, within minutes puppies will learn what they can nibble and what they can’t.

 We all know what it’s like, that moment in the street when you’re faced with a snarling, growling dog, do you run or dive into the nearest garden?

This Dog Wand is perfect for peace of mind, knowing that your loved ones are safe from devastating attacks which has left many hospitalised and even permanently scarred.

THE IDEA?

After adopting ‘Solo’ a rescue dog from a local Dog Shelter, a bad start to life meant she had terrible nerves and was very protective over food and toys. She would growl and nip us whenever we went near or tried taking her toys away.

It was by accident one day that she was chewing one of our friends children's toys, and it started to vibrate. She instantly let it go with a bewildered look on her face. So we started using it to to train her to let go of other things.......thus the Bite Release dog wand was born.

THE DESIGN

Designed with your dogs best welfare in mind

Using the wand is simple, with one press of the button, harmless ‘vibrations’ are transferred from the wand to the animal when applied near their mouth, head or neck area. 

Below is a collection of videos recorded over the past couple of years on testers phones.

Totally harmless!

We spent years testing different types of vibrations and found that some slower and some faster vibrations wouldn’t always work on particular dogs, but finally we have found the perfect tune that always releases a bite. Although we want to keep the exact frequency a secret, the technology behind the ‘Dog Wand’ has proven to work on a dog time after time. Perfect for long-term use!

"The wand only vibrates - no shocks!"

These ‘ultra sonic vibrations’ cause no pain or distress to the animal, it is simply a sensation which is totally new to them this distracting and homing their focus on the sensation instead of biting or chewing.

The Bite Release Wand is also perfectly safe and harmless to young dogs and puppies, the only training tool needed to stop unwanted nipping and chewing, helping to train your dog to chew only its own toys. Your slippers will thank us!

THE MANUFACTURING

We've had the tooling and moulds designed and made for the Original standard version. We produced a small run of wands and donated them to various dog owners and and organisations to get their feedback. (these ar the wands in the videos)

Tooling and Moulds are ready to go.

After the feedback was gathered, some minor tweaks have been made to the tooling and we are ready to press the button to manufacture and fulfil the first batch of wands to all the backers on Kickstarter.

 See all models of the Bite Release Dog Wand that are available. All vary in price and reward level depending on the model.  Which one suits you?

The go-to model whether you are an animal lover or not, shaped to fit any hand perfectly.

 Hard-wearing and extra tough, the pro-version is built for professionals, those of you who train and handle dogs.

Manufactured from anodised aluminium.

TESTIMONIALS

The Bite Release Dog Wand has been extensively tested and here is what some of the business professionals and vets have to say.

"I have tested this device on a number of dogs from Police, Military and Sport during bite work training. The bite Release Stick works by viabrating when activated via a push button on the handle of the stick. With the dog biting down onto the sleeve , the stick is placed onto the dogs lower jaw, when activated the strong viabration imitted by the stick will on most dogs cause the dog to release his grip. I have found as a traning aid on young dogs this is a very usefull humaine way of teaching the release command. I have also used the Bite Release Stick when teaching dogs to release balls and toys with a lot of sucsess. Due to the fact that the stick does just viabrate you will see no stress from the the dog, in my opinion this is a very good tool to teach the Leave/Out excersice in a stress free humaine way."

“The Bite Release tool would be wonderful to help us to control nasty dogs, it has an instant reaction and stops biting quickly, without any harm to yourself or the dog”

Charles Wall, Managing Director for A1K9 LTD, member of the British Institute of Dog Trainers and over 20 years experience of Professional Dog Training.

“Very impressed… Bite Release Wand certainly works and certainly has a place for it within training dogs to bite and release” Gaynor Probert , Director and Dog Trainer at A1K9 & Behaviorist for the CFBA.

“Definitely has a place in the pet training market to get dogs to release either off a bite or ball”.

STRETCH GOALS

We would really appreciate if we reach our target, but we would love to smash it, this would really help us to get the Bite Release Dog Wand into as many hands around the world as possible. 

If we reach £100,000, It would enable us to give every backer our amazing Bite Release Belt Clip as a huge thanks. It is designed to hold your wand firmly in place but also allow easy access and release.

ABOUT US

We would like to introduce ourselves as Paul James and Karen James, a married couple from Cardiff. We have always had a passion for mechanics, engineering, new technology and inventions, and have spent the past couple of years developing our Bite Release idea into commercial reality. After a worrying rise in the number of dog attacks in the UK and little in the market when its comes to protection from these attacks, Bite Release was born as a humane and safe to use tool – which could save lives!

Risks and challenges

We have taken all necessary steps to make sure that you receive a high quality, Original Bite Release Product delivered to your doorstep by 28th February 2016. The products have been meticulously researched and tested to ensure a quality product that works without fail every time.

We have already partnered with and vetted a reliable manufacturer. The moulds have been produced and prototypes made, we believe they can deliver without hiccup.

We have also located a Local fulfillment service to make sure that your orders get to you in a quick and efficient manner. If for some reason things go awry, we promise to frequently post updates to keep you in the loop.

Thank you so much in advance for wanting to help us bring to life the Bite Release Dog Wand.
