Rated 3 out of 5 by Pom32 Mixed Feelings...
I have mixed feelings about this remote. I am trying to train my Pomeranian pup from jumping up on people and sometimes to stop whining in specific circumstances. I have found that the remote does not get him to stop either of them when using it. The positive command seems to work well and he was picking up little tasks quickly. The remote also suggests to use on dogs that are over 6 months, which he is a little over 5 months so maybe he is still a little too young? It was definitely worth the try for the price and based on all of the great reviews! Also, be very careful if you use it with other dogs around. It severely scared our other dog who was much closer by than we thought, he hid for about 2+ hours after that! :(

I was a little skeptical about this but I thought I would give it a try. I have a 7 month old Great Pyrenees. She jumps when she gets excited. I've used it 3 times now and she stopped jumping on me. No one wants a 70 lb excited puppy jumping on them!
I took it to the dog park and let someone use it that had a rowdy pit bull puppy. She went on her phone and bought one while we were still at the park.

I purchased this product to start training my 2 dogs; prior to hiring a professional trainer. I am not a fan of a shock collar at all so I when I came across this product I decided to try it. We are on day 7, and it is very helpful; the manual instructs you to use the positive button only for the first few days. It works so well that I still haven't had the need to use the negative button at all. My dogs are loving and want affection, so when I use the positive button they know they will be rewarded with affection and a treat; they stop what they are doing instantly and come running. So this is working well for my immediate needs, and will eventually start to train with the negative button when I start to teach them to completely stop the unwanted behavior. When used properly to safely and harmlessly train your dog this is a great product.

THIS TRAINING TOOL DID NOT WORK AT ALL. MY DOG STOPS AND LOOKS AT IT FOR ABOUT A SECOND AND THEN CONTINUES WITH THE BAD BEHAVIOR. I WISH I STILL HAD THE PACKAGING BECAUSE I WOULD RETURN IT.

I tryed to use this product several times. Either this item was defected or something idk. The negitive button had no effect on my puppy at all. And everytime i tryed using it to correct her behavior while playing with the children my kids would start crying because thier ears hurt. I had to stop using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by felix it works but...
it does work. I have a silky terrier constantly barking at everything. Same neighbors and visitors and he just doesn't stop when in the backyard. He loves the outside like he's a bear. I have found that he wouldn't come near me and Id have to go call him from outside after long period of him not coming in. Too long for him, I worried something was wrong. He was always at the bottom of the stairs pacing. I stopped for a few days and now press it only when the barking is really disturbing or neighbors in their yard. So far I haven't noticed the same problem. You gotta see how your pet reacts and I think alternate how you use it if it really presents a problem. I have another 14 lbs chiwhawha. Even though she barks often enough due to him, not an issue with her. noticed it affected her and could tell she didn't understand.

We tried this to keep our Labrador from jumping up on us when she gets overly excited. We have only used it twice in the last month and it worked like a charm. She hated it of course and went and hid and we really had to coax her and work with her to regain her trust of us the first time we used it but now, all we have to do is show it to her and she is obedient. Great product. The only thing we don't like is that we would not want to use it around other dogs.

It gets my dogs attention. but its more like he stops to flip me the bird. I dog sit and was using it to keep the dogs from "being inappropriate" if you like dirty looks from your dog go for it. if you want to actually improve bad behavior, try something else! This is no better than when we used to smack a rolled op newspaper in our hand. ( never hitting the dog) that noise was just or even more effective.
