Is the Stimulation safe for my pet?
While the Stimulation is unpleasant, it is harmless to your pet. Electronic training devices require interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results.
How old does my pet have to be before using the PetSafe Remote Trainer?
Your pet should be able to recognize basic obedience commands such as “Sit” or “Stay”. Pets should be at least 6 months old before using the Trainer.
Once my pet is trained and has been obeying my commands, will he have to continue to wear the Receiver Collar?
Probably not. You may need to reinforce training with the Receiver Collar from time to time.
Is the Receiver Collar waterproof?
Yes. When changing the batteries, be sure to keep the area free of dirt and debris. Also, make sure the screws are flush with the Battery Lid.
Will I get exactly 100 yards of range with the Remote Trainer?
The range of the Remote Trainer will vary according to terrain, weather, vegetation, as well as transmission from other radio devices. See “How the System Works” for tips on maximizing your range.
How long can I continuously deliver stimulation to my pet?
The maximum amount of time you can press the Stimulation Button and deliver stimulation to your pet continuously is 12 seconds. After this, the Remote Transmitter will time-out, and the Stimulation Button must be released and pressed again.
