We have an acre lot with additional acreage on all sides, providing ample opportunity to wander away. .I bought this collar for intermittent use to correct 3 difficult problems: paying attention and responding to the come command, stopping barking quickly when anyone arrives, and to correct the tendency to trespass on my one neighbor's yard. The collar works exactly as advertised and is effective.
I do not agree with the instructions that using a shock collar is a good way to train a dog to obey all commands.

The only negative would be the collar battery could hold a charge longer and it takes overnight to recharge. Our dog was trained on an invisible fence from our prior home so this went very smoothly. As soon as I push the negative tone she comes running. I have not tried this in a park like setting, only on our own property. Well worth the $.
If you have a small dog you may think the collar is a bit heavy.

when its charged (12 hrs. ) it works fine, But it doesn't last long enough.

We did buy another one immediately because I do think this is a very valuable training device for a big powerful dog that needs to be gentle around children, but still be a good guard dog. Our Doberman, like a lot of Dobie's, likes to test for dominance a lot just playfully but he's a big boy so it was important he learn very fast not to jump on people, especially kids. Our house is large so he could easily zip upstairs and get in trouble before we were fast enough to correct him so this stopped that problem. The first one broke in a couple weeks. Not sure why or how, but just didn't work one morning but we bought another one and shipped it right away. Our other puppy is a Great Dane so while she is a lot less energetic and doesn't jump up so much we might need it to correct in case she does so we want to be sure to keep it around through the training phase. And it only took a couple very light shocks to correct behaviour so you don't feel cruel at all. In fact you know it keeps the dog from being punished regularly for infractions so it makes for a much happier and safer pet.

I am aware of the danger of a pack of coyotes attacking my yellow lab after a pitbull was taunted by a female coyote and then killed and eaten by a coyote pack in our neighborhood. I have seen how well my dog's collar works at preventing my dog from misbehaving. All I needed to do was give her two shock doses and now when she hears the tone, she is back at my side in a jiffy. I know that collar is a life saver for her.

I researched a good shock collar for a month before purchasing this. When I found this I thought it was to good to be true. I couldn't find anything else with the long range and waterproof for near this price. I bought it and had it within a few days and I live in Alaska! Been using it for a month and taking my dog swimming. Works great! I also have only had to shock my dog a few times as the negative tone works great to correct her behavior!

This training collar works very well. There is no delay in getting the controller to turn on and send the signal to the collar like some on ebay. That is important because you need to send the correction while the bad habit is happening to get it to stop. My dog would jump on everyone and would not stop. After just a few corrections this bad habit is gone.

So I bought this for my sister, she has a golden pup that does the whole grab stuff then run away/play thing that's hard to break because when the doggie DOES come back... you can't scold them. Working GREAT, in fact after only a few uses the dog is almost broken of the issues. Great tool for remote training!
Tale of caution:
I charged it up to try myself... set it at the lowest level and held it in my hand. No way I'm gonna shock a dog with something I cant handle right???
I pushed the button... lame... only a tingle, so I'm thinking, "Great, this is gonna be as useful as a windowscreen umbrella..."
So I immediately set it to the highest level... let out a big sigh about how dumb it was to buy this ... I pushed the button.
BLLLAAAAAMMMMM I've yet to be tased for real, but I sure hope it's not much worse than this! My arm shook violently and I involuntarily dropped the collar (the thing is quite robust) to the ground! (sadly, yes I do speak from experience... I'm not the smartest person sometimes... thus this tale).
From now on... I'll sit when I'm told to!!!
On a serious note, this is a good product. Would probably stop a rabid pitbull chasing a squirrel... I'd also hold off on the top level until that exact scenario presents itself.
Happy with the purchase, good thing it has levels from hey dog I'm talking to you... all the way to BLAM!

I would like to encourage anyone on the fence about the remote collars. I purchased the shock collar for my 7 mth old pup, and he absolutely loves the freedom it has given him. I love it because the one time he took off, I warned and then zapped him at about 400 Yds., and he turned right around. Haven't shocked him since. I just tone him and he is looking for my orders.

On the right dog (confident and willful but not aggressive) this is a great tool for remotely correcting behavior that could harm your dog, such as coprophagia (danger of worms or diseases from foxes etc.) or chasing. If used correctly and humanely, the dog quickly learns to respond to only the device's sounds - and your voice - and you never have to use the shocker. In off leash situations (retrieving/hunting) its great for getting your dog's attention when distracted or too far away for voice alone to be effective. It works best when emphasis is placed on using the "good" beep as a clicker and only using the "bad" beep when essential.
This product is robust. I have had problems with several spray collars by the same company, which generally lasted a week. So far this one has stood up to the rough play a young dog engages in at a dog park. Although I remove it for swimming/water retrieving, it has been fine with an occasional unplanned dip in the lake. BE SURE TO LOWER THE SHOCK LEVEL TO THE LOWEST WHEN YOUR DOG IS WET.
My dog has become so responsive to the sounds, that I use the smaller, lighter spray collar (sprayer is broken) all the time now, and then mostly as a clicker for good behavior such as "checking in" voluntarily, a good heel, a quick response to a command and a recall.
