"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.

Very easy to use. When I see a bad behaivor being done, I give a zap (very small) and he stops what he's doing. When we go to the dog park, he tends to forget his commands. This collar reminds him that he still needs to listen to me. He is a very strong 1 yr.German Shephard that just needs a gentle reminder. A must have product.

I really like this product but we are using it to teach our dog to stop barking at night. We only use it when we can tell he is barking or I call it talking to the neighbors dogs. The battery doesn't last as long as we would like but it's great for about 5 hours.

I use the collar on my Australian Shephard to keep him under control. WE live in the country & the 400yrd range is a big advantage.I also use the collar with some of the dogs taht I train.

This works so well to keep our big dog in line. She even loves it. She sits when my husband puts it on her because she knows she's going to be able to go outside with him and not have to be in the pen. Only had to use the shock part once. Now the warning is all she needs and even that not often. It is amazing how well she adapted to it. The only thing we found was that the battery's have to be recharged alot. But that's nothing compared to the satisfaction that she'll be close to us and not run away. We're very satisfied with our purchase.

My dog now enjoys more freedom and we are both having more fun. My Sheltie had the unsafe habit of wanting to chase cars (not uncommon with a herding breed). After a couple shocks and now a very infrequent negative tone, we are walking the neighborhood a lot more. He also loves to chase waves at the beach and now the collar allows him to do it without a leash. Like other reviewers, my only negative comment is the short battery life. I never notice the low battery indicator; it goes from charged to uncharged in a short period of time, usually with no use of negative tone or shock.

This product worked great for our chocolate lab. He was very disobedient and would run for the neighbor's yard every time we turned him out for exercise, not to mention constantly knocking down my 2 & 5 year old children. He only had to be shocked once or twice and now knows his boundaries with and without the collar. We have trained him to stay and not to jump on our kids with only the negative tone. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has a big dog that they are having problems training.

I only had to actually shock Lilly a couple times. She is well behaved now even when the collar is on but not actually turned on. She knows her boundaries in our yard and is able to be out loose while we are in the yard working etc. or alone if she is just out to do her business and come back in. She won't leave the yard even if her ball happens to roll off our property.
