I purchased this as a replacement for the exact same model which is right at a year old. My original review is below dated March 10, 2014. Original still works but plastic over buttons is starting to crack and break away exposing switch below. Don't want to have transmitter fail while walking trails with dog.
This is only draw back that I would give this unit, hence the 4 star rating. Would like to see more durable rubber cover over button. But a year's worth of reliable performance for under $60, I won't complain. I have see identical unit at "discount chain stores" for $99.

I bought this collar to keep my 6month golden doodle from counter surfing, rough play with our older dog, digging , and eating cat poop. So far it is working. I am hoping eventually we will be able to do away with the device. Each day is better. At this point he often just needs a voice command. I do recommend this for anyone training a puppy 6 mo. And older.

I have purchased several no bark collars but Pet Safe Trainer is the best. I have a mutt after a few shocks all I do now is just point the remote & it gets his attention. It is worth the money.

purchased this to help train a terrier mix rescue dog that we added to the family. The dog was still having some behavior issues with jumping on people, growling/barking at guests, hyper excited around the family cats and constant lunging on the leash during walks after 3 months in the household.
I put the collar on the dog around 10 am, working with him as instructed in the included manual, rewarding with the "A" tone which he responded so well to that by the afternoon I started using the "B" tone with the "no" and "down" commands. He already knew the commands he just often chose to ignore me. Walks were much more relaxed. By 7 that evening we had a completely different dog in the house. Not perfect but greatly improved in behavior.
The system is very lightweight and adjustable. Transmitter case is is unimpressive in construction but works well and consistently. I would recommend it to family for the price.

About 5 months ago, my 4 year old Vizsla started to bark & whine as soon as I rattled the feed bowl to prepare her meal. The bad part about this situation is that she "trained" my 4 other dogs to do the same thing! Talk about a loud chorus!. I have tried just about everything to break her of this habit, but to no avail...until I bought the PetSafe Basic Remote Trainer.
I have used this product for 2 weeks and now I do not need to use the remote. She responds to my verbal commands and now everyone enjoys mealtime!
A great product.

Training a Pit and also a Hound .. Found that after a few corrections with each dog they began to respond every time i spoke. They already knew what commands I was giving they just ignored them .. Now they respond quickly and they feel more secure than me having to use harsh voice control. I just give them a warning tone now and they respond. Been using the trainer for about 2 weeks daily .. Spending about 30 minutes a day working on different commands.
