We have a four year old rescue dog, mixed breed that was traumatized in the shelter. She was overprotective of her space, jumped up on guests and couldn't be off the leash because she would run off. She is the most loveable dog we have ever had. We took her to obedience training to no avail, got a thunder jacket, (worked just slightly) then out of sheer desperation we purchased PetSafe Yard and Park Dog Training Collar, the results are simply amazing. Sarah doesn't exhibit any of the previously mentioned traits. We only shocked her 4 times and now just have to remind her with the tone on occasion. GREAT PRODUCT.

We have a St. Bernard that is very active and very social. She likes to visit with people and and animals as well. Until we purchased the collar she was definitely walking us. Now she is very gentle and it is rare that we need to use anything but the corrective sounds. I recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy their walks!

I got this for my 15 month old pit bull about a month ago. She is what the trainers call a "reactive dog". It works great! She used to pull on her leash, so I got the gentle leader, well she still pulled on that. But with this collar it only took 2 "shocks" on the 1 setting for her to get the idea, and I haven't had to use it for the pulling since. She walks right next to me with a nice "J" shape to the leash. She also used to jump up on guests coming over, run to other dogs without listening to my commands, and the collar fixed it all. I have not tried it out at the dog park yet, but I have high hopes, as everything else I have used it for has worked amazingly. She likes to take other dogs toys out of their mouths, so we'll see how that goes over. The battery life is good too, we just turn the collar off when we're sitting around the house, etc. Its rechargeable, which was the main reason I got this collar. I have no Cons about this product. I would recommend this product to anyone with a "wild child". It seems to be durable - there is some wear and tear on it. Range has never been an issue for me - seems to work great.

I bought this for my 10 month old lab puppy. He chewed everything and jumped on everyone. He even knocked people over, no one was safe. Although well trained he gets very excited and he's off. I used the "electronic stimulator" it once and since then I only need the warning buzzer. It didn't hurt but it startled. It really does help him remember what he learned....quickly. Best of all, we can go to the river for a swim and I don't have to worry about the collar. Waterproof is excellent.

"We currently own 3 Rottweilers. Having this device has totally changed our way of life. No more running off, no more charging out the door, and no more fighting!
We don't even have to use the shock features anymore, just seeing the remote snaps them in line. At the very most, we hit the warning beep now and then. Thank you Radio fence."

My dog is 1/2 yellow lab & 1/2 pointer so when he isloose he can cover some distance quickly. The training collar allows him to run stay with his boundries without getting into trouble. He is extremely smart dog and I only had to use the negative command a couple of times. Basically it gives me piece of mind just in case.Best investment I ever made

"Used the probs as little as i could and only
most severe bad behaivior.
Don't use the spike probes anymore. Removed them and
only use the tone feature when training.
Very good tool for training."

I am in a wheelchair. Control of my dogs once outside has always been an issue. I just bought 20 acres and I take the dogs up there to run. With this collar, I am able to teach my younger dog to respect the bounderies and listen as I give commands--all while sitting in my car! It's control I've never been able to enforce before. The unit is very effective. Like most reviews I've read, after a few shocks, I mostly use the negative tone to warn him and my dog obeys instantly! He (my young one) is responding to my voice better now when outside with or without the collar.
