This device has 100 levels of static pulses as well as a plain vibrating option. Also a bright LED light that can be set to flash or stay on. After training our dog, now 18 months old, to know the basic commands, we still had issues with some hunting instinct or food-related disappearing acts. One or two electric stimuli in the beginning of her wearing the collar, when she started running after a turkeys or stayed behind eating coyote poop, made her realize she might get hurt, so now a simple buzz on the vibrate button reminds her. On our walks now, we have complete peace of mind and she gets lots of praise as we hardly even need to use the vibrate option either.
This collar is overrated the problem with it is the charging doesn't last very long and God forbid if it should go red meaning blinking on the collar it even States it in the directions that you cannot let it go low in the battery it doesn't last long it does work well however but the problem with it is very complicated to utilize I would not recommend this color it cost me way more money than it is on this chewy.com I paid $300 for it not worth it
I was nervous to purchase this because of how expensive it was and it not working but it works fantastic. I mainly purchased this for my dog who pulls and it has been wonders for our walks. I would recommend this to anyone. I would talk with a trainer or watch some videos to make sure you are using enforcement correctly but it is definitely a must have product.
I have 147 pound American bulldog/boxer and he was so bad he wanted to charge at other dogs, I decided to give this a try after all the other dog training classes that we went to and this is the only thing that got him trained. I don’t even have to use it now he just looks at that yellow transmitter and he knows how to act, but if he does act out, I will vibrate first let him know I got before I would have to shock because I really do not want to use that but in a bad situation, I will use it but I don’t have to because my dog is completely train now.
We bought this when we got our dog about 1.5 years ago. It works really well when it works, as others say of course it can help with many training things. BUT we have had to replace the receiver 6 times now, about every 3 months. The company has replaced it every time, but they said they will stop at 2 years when the warranty is up (even though the receiver won't be close to that old). While this product is great in theory, in long term use with an outdoor-loving dog it just doesn't seem like it can hold up. The issues have been that the receiver just gets really mixed signals from the remote (making me worried it will be too strong) or stops charging. And yes, we tighten the screws as directed. I'd recommend looking elsewhere for an ecollar, which is a bummer because this one has a lot of great features.
This collar has saved my dogs life and also made things so much fun for us. We go on the best adventures now and i have peace of mind. It was really easy to train her with it. I use the vibrator and call her name and she comes to me every single time. Immediately! No matter what. She loves other dogs but will ignore them if she is loose and I vibrate the collar. She comes if I vibrate while she is chasing a squirrel too. Once before she was really trained on the collar, but wearing it, she pulled so hard on her leash that I dropped it and she took off toward a 4 lane, very busy highway to go after a ground hog. I vibrated the collar and it worked, she stopped before she got to the highway. She would have for sure been hit by a car if she hadn't had the collar on. This collar saved her life!!! Now that we have this collar, I turn her loose in the woods, on trails, in remote areas of the park, etc. and she can run and sniff which is so much more fun than boring side-walk walks with a leash which we used to do before this collar. I now LOVE our walks as much as she does. The adventures are endless and different. She burns twice as much energy while she runs and trots around on her adventures, loose. I have a Coonhound so the nose leads with her and still the collar brings her to me 100%, every single time. The key is to make sure they understand what the vibrate command means. You don't just put the collar on and start beeping it. And you don't use it as punishment bc then they will be terrified of it. Use the collar as a replacement for your voice. To train: put the collar on, use a long lead and treats. Say the "come" command and then pull on the lead, vibrate the collar and reward with a yummy treat (not a dog treat, but something that they never get so it is extra exciting, like hot dogs). It took my dog about three days to learn and she got better each time. The hot dogs were the extra encouragement, lol. When I vibrate she runs to me for a piece of hot dog, lol. You need to start with small enclosed places and see if you can trust them and then graduate to bigger places. I have only used the shock two times. They learn quickly so you won't need to use it after that. You really will only need to use it once or twice in the beginning if they ignore the vibrate and they learn quickly that if they don't obey, the shock is next. You won't have to use it after that. The shock has 100 levels and the smaller levels are so light that you can barely feel it with your thumb so that gives you lots of room to make sure it won't hurt them. I barely even need to use the vibrate anymore either because I give her a voice command and she knows the vibrate is next if she doesn't come. Shock would be last resort, but really anytime the collar is on, she obeys without me using it. I am so grateful for this collar. We have so much more fun now and she is safe if she gets loose by accident and wants to go after something, I can instantly bring her back. It always works with her. Before the collar, she used to play, "Catch me if you can" in the street between moving cars, so this collar is a life saver. I highly, highly recommend!
great that it has a large variation in stimulus levels. The instructions are a big vague, but theres lots of videos online that help. I recommend working with a trainer for optimal use for your specific dog.
I have two adorable, but untrained doodle pups. My youngest, a two year old Aussiedoodle is an excessive barker when people come to the door and when he sees other dogs and squirrels during our walks. I purchased the two-dog mini educator and it honestly has been a miracle worker on my Aussiedoodle. He gets excited when I put the collar on him because he knows it is time to work for treats. I noticed a drastic improvement after day one of using thus YouTube videos techniques - Proper and humane e collar training for any dog by Larry Krohn. I have only used this collar with POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT - this is key!! I purchased this now a week ago and I have barely had to press a button. I use a 9 level on him and you can barley feel it on a humans hand. Make sure to always have training treats on hand. I see a lot of the negative reviews referencing that its not a bark collar, very true. But with the correct training and work from the owner and the dog this can effectively train a dog not to bark. Good luck!
I assume a lot of people who don't find this useful are trying to use it by themselves and I was that person too. At first it wasn't working and my dog did not respond to it. My dog was ruling my house and just wouldn't listen, so I finally decided to sign him up for a day train program and this is what they use. In only a day and a half he is already a changed pup. It is supposed to work more as a tap, not a shock, to condition the pups and get their attention to work with commands. If you don't know how to properly use it with commands, it will not serve its purpose. Definitely use this with a trained professional!! - then you will love it, you will know how to use it, and it is the best way to make sure your pup is safe and happy too.
Love the remote aspect of this collar. It lets my pups live their life and I only have to focus on correcting the negative behaviors. Dogs are very receptive to the collar as well. Money well spent.
