Rated 4 out of 5 by Ash87T I love this product!
We bought this collar for our German Sheperd mix, Bowie back in March as an alternative to an invisible fence. He kept leaving our yard and chasing the neighborhood stray. We started seeing an improvement right away! The tone feature is nice, we used it as a warning before delivering a shock and after only a few times he started responding only to the sound. He's like a different dog when we put this collar on! He runs out, pees, poops and runs back. It's also great for hiking as he generally wants to be ahead of us, with the collar on he's not pulling us up mountains and he stays very close. The only reason why I didn't give this product 5 stars is bc the battery died after a months use and those batteries are very expensive. Other than that, it's a great product that continues to work for us! As for anybody thinking about ordering anything at all from Chewy.com, do it! Their customer service is great, they check up on you to make sure you're happy with your product and the product arrived when expected.

My dog definitely listens when he gets a mild shock for doing something bad over all I think this product is perfect for training and young dog

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosie Great for the price
I have very stubborn half husky/Shepard mix, that we rescued from a very busy intersection and she had absolutely no training whatsoever ,she is very smart and learns quickly. I was hoping that this would help with her becoming able to be off leash but the collar is too big for her she is a large dog but even at its tightest is still not enough for her to feel The sensations of the collar especially when she is very excited, and focused on anything else! It is helping me train her on the leash and she enjoys her walks now as to why because I can control her better rarely do I have to use anything but the sound! Probably should have invested in a more expensive better quality but it is still a very good product for the price hoping to fix the collar so that it is a bit tighter and we can continue working on her training !

Found this product and after reading the reviews, I was SUPER excited to try on my very stubborn 130lb Cane Corso Puppy. He is a great dog, but has an issue with running off outside. Although he is a big baby and very harmless, I fear that he will run up on the wrong person, who doesn't know him and they'll shoot him because of his size. I tried this on him first in our garage (on the highest setting) and he did great. I figured since he was so responsive, I would try him outside in the unfenced front yard. He did awesome out there, too, until he heard a dog down the street barking. He took off and ended up getting into an altercation. I HELD the button down the entire time and he was unphased. I tried the collar out on myself before this, also, and even at the highest setting, it wasn't strong enough to give me a kick. I also tried this on my 25lb Shepherd mix (who has a higher pain tolerance than my beast) and she didn't seem phased either. Wouldn't recommend for any dog that has a high pain tolerance; regardless of size.

I ordered this collar a few weeks ago and after the first day of use the shock part of the collar came unscrewed somewhere in the backyard. I called and they without question sent me a brand new one. I am excited to use the product as it was recommended to me. They only asked if I could please donate the old one to a dog shelter if it still works!! No need to send it back!! Very happy wth their service!

Rated 2 out of 5 by dsgrove Not for my dog
My 1 year old, 60# Shepherd mix loves to jump up on people and she can get nippy with my husband at times. Usually a firm "no" gets her attention, but with these two issues nothing seemed to work. My co-worker suggested to try an electric collar since she had great success with one on her Doberman. I really didn't want to pay $200 for one, so I was excited when I found one for a cheaper price on Chewy.
The collar was easy to fit, but the batteries were a little hard to get in the collar. The instructions are pretty simple. We tested the collar with the tester chip that was included. Everything seemed to be in working order. The shock levels go from 1L-8L to 1H-8H. We started out on the lowest setting and slowly increased to see what level my dog reacted to. She did not react to any of the L settings. She then would sometimes react to 6H, but it wasn't consistent at all.
We trimmed up the hair around her neck because we thought the hair might have been getting in the way. She responded better, but when we corrected her for nipping it would cause her to bite even more.
We have since switched to correcting her with her prong collar and that has helped way more (and without making her biting worse).

This same exact product is in 2 of my local pet stores for over $100. I don't get it, but I'm not complaining. Chewy wins again. This collar has worked wonders for our extremely stubborn and teenaged GSD. Just a teeny little zap does the trick. My husband tested it on himself and said most settings weren't bad at all. Not really painful, just sort of zingy.. Either which way, it was a great purchase and value!

I have a neurotic and stubborn shelter Doberman who would bark for an entire 30 minute ferry ride. I used this on setting #2 (quite low) and it took only 3 episodes to teach him that *no barking* had a consequence. I am impressed.
