26 Bars & a Band Debuts an Innovative Walking Solution Designed to Make Walking Your Dog Simple and Convenient

Already an Editor's Choice winner, strideā„¢ brings simplicity and convenience in walking the dog. Stride's multiple features will help dog lovers do more with less and take the next step toward a meaningful shared walking experience.

Los Angeles, CA, September 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The multi-functional stride™ is not only innovative but simple to use.

- Unlike typical waste bags, which are perforated on a continuous roll, the stride™ waste bags are dispensed individually since they are folded flat like travel tissue. Designed in a natural wood grain print, stride’s™ biodegradable waste bags are available in refill packs.

- While the task of picking up after your dog isn’t always pleasant, stride’s™ built-in hand sanitizer compartment makes it easy to keep your hands clean and germ free. Consumers can replenish the refillable compartment with any preferred brand of hand sanitizer.

- The pedometer feature of stride™ helps keep track of each step with its multi-axis technology, activity monitoring options for steps, distance, and calories, and up to seven days of stored information. Stride’s™ pedometer will help you stay motivated toward better health for you and your faithful canine companion.

- The innovative and sleek look of stride™ has the modern design elements that consumers can expect from 26 Bars & a Band. Its glow in the dark strap is adjustable and attaches easily to the handle of any dog leash or belt loop.

Consumers can order the stride™ original walking solution through the company’s website.

- stride™ Original: $25 (includes 7 starter flat pack waste bags, removable sanitizer container, multi-axis pedometer, glow-in-the dark strap)

- stride™ Flat Pack Woodgrain Refill Bags: $8 (Eight packs of 7 waste bags, 56 waste bags total)

President Sandi Kaneko notes that the inspiration for stride™ comes from personal experience: “I used to gather various accessories needed for walking the dog while my overly excited and anxious pooch waited. With stride™, we wanted to simplify the dog-walking experience and promote a healthy lifestyle for both owners and their dogs. My favorite feature is the dual benefit in using the pedometer to easily track how far I'm walking my dog while monitoring how many calories I'm burning.”

Portable, lightweight, and compact, stride™ is a simple and convenient walking solution that encourages healthy living and creates a walking experience that leads to a happy, healthy and calm pet.
