I got this for my cocker spaniel so he would stop getting into so much stuff and it worked wonders!! I didn't even have to use the shock feature. The beep feature did just what I needed it to! :)
Pros: It works surprisingly well for its price. Setting up was easy Cons: The user interface is poor. Shocking a dog should only be used if it is about to run out into a busy street or attack someone. Unless otherwise stated, the nudging "vibration" or "beeping" should work on dogs. However, the "Shock" button on this device is in the middle, round and bigger than the other two, making it very easy to shock your dog accurately. What's worse is setting #5 in vibration is pretty low but shock #5 is disturbingly painful. Someone who designed this device really, really wanted to shock the dogs.
my husky shred the collar while I was trying to size it for his neck. the collar is awkward to adjust & because it is too thin I was unable to find a replacement anywhere
Great collar, fits well easy instructions, just be careful it comes set at level 16 instead of level 1 to start
I own a couple PatPet e-collars now an the remote in this kit has a few new features I appreciate. Illuminated screen which can be view in complete darkness. Ability to toggle between vibrate and stimulate with the gear icon, which allows you to adjust the levels without activating the function. Ability to adjust the vibration intensity, other models I have used only have one setting for vibrate. Overall I think this is a nice training tool at a good price.
My little guy likes to run off, he's a roamer if you will. Unfortunately though, I live on a river and we have a 12 foot gator who also shares our home at the river. So, to avoid my little man becoming a gator snack, I purchased this collar. I have never had to use the shock feature, the vibration works just fine. One vibrate and he's running to the porch. There's no more yelling his name for 30 minutes, no more looking for him, no more leaving the yard, and no more going down to the river. My dogs are indoor dogs, they never go outside without me being there; however, if I am watching the big girl, he runs off and if I am monitoring him, she runs off. These collars have made it to where I can monitor and maintain both of my rescues at the same time.
Very satisfied and love the beeps as she responds without the need for vibration or shock.
My dog liked to chase cats, and squirrels not to hurt them, just play. The problem with that is she would run across the road at times. Did not hardly ever listen when I tried to stop her. This has been a huge help. I now just use the beep or vibrate.
Another great collar by PATPET. For the simpler models of PATPETs collar this unit is very easy to use and has most of the functions of the more advanced collars. Great look and durability as all the others. Extremely cost effective and worth the money
Great Training collar. I have used pat-pet products in the past and I am never disappointed. I use the sound for my dog to come then reward with treat. I use vibration for discipline. I have never had to use shock. You won't be disappointed with this and all of patpet products.
