I pretty upset right now. This collar put my pup in danger. First let me say this is not my first Petsafe training collar. I been using these collars to train my dogs to stay out of bad situations on the farm. I bought this as a replacement for one of my big dog collars that broke for my new pup for boundary training. I didn't start using it till last week. At first it worked fine, I thought it odd that the static setting needed to be so high for this young dog. Over the week I have had to consistently increase it. Today he headed to the road and I got no response at all. Thankfully I managed to get his attention otherwise and got him back. This collar states that it works as an add collar for all the different training collar including the 900. The number refers to the range. Collar has no range. You need to be right next to the dog for it to work. That defeats the purpose for range work. Second it states it's for large breeds yet the prongs are small. I feel this is not for larger dogs. This was definitely a waste of money. I have compared this to my other petsafe collar and it is clearly inferior for the job. I've included pictures of the comparison. The new collar is on the right. I've glued my old one back together hopefully it will hold for now.
Best dog training collar on the market. All others I have tried do not stand up to daily outdoor use.
Collar works great but wears out quickly. The button stopped depressing, loses charge quickly, and just keeps beeping for no reason.
It does not work with my existing transmitter. I would like to return it.
Ordered the add-a dog and was pleasantly surprised that it had a much better collar than the original. This model overall is great for just about any size dog. It's small, light and has a great range of power settings. I've owned several brands of e-collars and this is by far the best for size, power and range.
This trainer works wonderfully and it allows our dog to have so much freedom to roam with us in the yard, swim in the lake and engage with guests. We rarely need to use zap, we only use the sound. The issue is my dog is just barely 3 years old and we are on our 4th collar/2nd Remote. They stop working quickly. The rubber stopper over the charger plug-in (which makes them water proof) breaks off. If our dog scratches his neck (because of the collar), the rubber on/off button comes off. We are super careful with the units but still have had them stop working for one reason or another (now 3 times for the collar and 1 time for the remote). Overall, they are a fantastic tool for training and behavior 5 stars for that.....1 star for durability (which is why we have now gotten 4 collars and 2 remotes (one was actually was replaced by PetSafe). So for us, it isn't Add-A-Dog but Replace-A-Collar.
I received a used collar, it was open and someone cut the collar to fit a small dog and the piece was even in the box!!!
No more jumping, biting, excessive barking, or overly-excited greetings! This product worked right away and made behavior corrections so easy for our first dog, so we ordered this add on for our second. A couple quick tone sounds is all it takes after a short time, and now rarely have to utilize static. It is a very simple, primal conditional-response concept and works amazingly. I wish I would have known about this before we spent money on behavior classes.
We have the wireless fence system and it works very well. We added this remote collar and have used it a variety of ways. We chose this one as the tone is the same as the wireless fence. Tone only helps helps reinforce commands. We also use to teach boundaries to new puppy. Added a second collar to help with barking. This collar has functioned well in all areas of training.
I had to purchase my original collar for my 4yr old boxer as she continually ran after smaller dogs no matter how far away they were. My original purchase (300 yd reach) was definitely a god send and now she stays close even with just voice commands. I purchased the add on for my two year old boxer who has now started to have a mind of his own and chase squirrels two football fields away and not return with voice commands like he used to. Having this add-on collar has been wonderful, he is listening better and not chasing so far and returns on tone only.
