Instructions

Not for use with aggressive dogs. Do not use this product if your dog is aggressive, or if your dog is prone to aggressive behavior. Aggressive dogs can cause severe injury and even death to their owner and others. If you are unsure whether this product is appropriate for your dog, please consult your veterinarian or a certified trainer.

Proper fit of the collar is important. A collar worn for too long, or made too tight on the dog’s neck may cause skin damage. This is called bed sores; it is also called decubitus ulcers or pressure necrosis.

  • Avoid leaving the collar on the dog for more than 12 hours per day.
  • When possible, reposition the collar on the dog’s neck every 1 to 2 hours.
  • Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure; follow the instructions in this manual.
  • Never connect a lead to the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
  • When using a separate collar for a lead, don’t put pressure on the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module.
  • Wash the dog’s neck area and the contacts of the collar weekly with a damp cloth.
  • Examine the contact area daily for signs of a rash or a sore.
  • If a rash or sore is found, discontinue use of the collar until the skin has healed.
  • If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
  • You may need to trim the hair in the area of the contact points or switch to the longer contact points to ensure consistent contact. Never shave the dog’s neck; this may lead to a rash or infection.
  • You should not make the collar any tighter than is required for good contact. A collar that is too tight will increase the risk of pressure necrosis in the contact area.
  • Your dog should not vocalize or panic when receiving stimulation. If this happens, the stimulation level is too high and you need to go back to the previous level and repeat the process.

Training Tips

You will have the most success using this product if you always remember to teach a command before trying to reinforce the command with stimulation. We recommend that you read the enclosed Training Guide and watch the enclosed DVD before training. Your training will be easier and proceed faster if you follow the guidelines in these teaching assistants. In addition, always keep the following training tips in mind:

  • Eliminate a single misbehavior or teach a single obedience command at a time. If you move too fast with the training, your dog may become confused.
  • Be consistent. Give your dog a tone, vibration and/or stimulation for each misbehavior.
  • Do not over correct your dog. Use as little stimulation as possible to train your dog.
  • Restrict your dog from situations in which he has a history of misbehaving unless you can supervise him and use the TEK SERIES Handheld Device for applying tone, stimulation or vibration.
  • If you notice one situation in which your dog misbehaves repeatedly, set up this situation as a training session. This will dramatically increase your chances of success.
  • If your dog has a timid reaction to the tone, stimulation or vibration (especially the fi rst couple of times), do not be alarmed. Redirect his attention to a simple and appropriate behavior (i.e. a known command, such as “Sit”).
  • Never use the TEK SERIES Location and Training System to correct or eliminate any form of aggressive behavior. If your dog exhibits such behavior, contact a professional trainer. Aggression in dogs is the result of many factors – it may be a learned behavior or it may be brought on as a result of fear. Another factor contributing to aggression in dogs is social dominance. Every dog is different.

Battery Maintenance

The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge before the first use. When storing the unit for long periods, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge. This should be done once every 3 to 4 months. Failure to do so will result in decreased battery life.

You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose capacity over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience. The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years.

After 12 seconds, the Handheld Device will “time-out,” and the Continuous Stimulation Button must be released and pressed again.

What do I do if my dog’s neck becomes red and irritated? This condition is due to the Contact Points irritating the skin. Discontinue use of the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian. Once the skin returns to normal, resume use, and monitor the skin condition closely.

Can I attach a leash to the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module? DO NOT attach a leash to the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module. You may put a separate nonmetallic collar on your dog’s neck and attach a leash. Be sure the extra collar does not interfere with the contact points.
