Abstract:

The report describes the development and test of an electronic dog handler system which remotely monitors and controls the movements of a dog. The system consists of a control unit held by the operator and a remote unit carried by the dog by means of a harness. The control unit transmits control tones change direction, down-stay, and recall to the dog and provides instantaneous readout of the dogs heading, actions sit, stand, or motion, and range and azimuth with respect to the operator. The remote unit receives signals from the control unit, producing audible command tones for the dog, and transmits heading, action and range data back to the control unit for processing.
