"our basset likes to eat the other dogs waste. as soon as she approaches the waste i give her a beep and that is usually enough to stop her, if not we spray her with the citrus and that makes her run.
the battery last about 3-4 days before we rechg. hopefully she will grow out of this problem and we can put the collar away.
one issue is our dog has a lot of skin and fur under her neck so we have to leave the collor real lose on her so the spray doesn't just go on her fur."

I bought the collar online [...] I have a large Doberman who's very gentle, however was getting into the habbit of running away and then not letting me catch him. It became a serious issue when he was nearly run over by an SUV. After that, I went onto a routine where I would just never allow him to be outside without a leash since I don't have a fenced yard. Obviously this wore thin after about 2 weeks when I was having to let him out at 3 or 4 in the morning and it was -30 degrees celsius. I became very tired of having to wake up, get dressed for the weather, and then come back inside, undress and jump back into bed for 2 hours until I had to get up for work. I needed to be able to trust him outside without me supervising. I got this collar and immediatetly taught my dog to simply come to me when he hears the beep. After 1 week, he was at my feet the second he hears the beeps. I can now let him outside at any time, and he comes as soon as I call him, or as soon as he hears a beep and knows a shock's coming next. I could not let him off the leash without this collar, and I love the collar because I don't have to go outside everytime my dog needs to pee now. Worth the investment in my opinion, Cheers. Dave

I bought this collar to help keep my puggle from stealing food from my children... she is not aggressive, but is def a food hound.... the collar works great with her. I have only had to use the tone and it seems to do the trick (but she does know when she is not wearing it). We also use the collar when we take her out of our yard... we have the inground fece so this collar works great because I can tone her when I call her and she usually comes right back because she is used to the tone on the fence that tells her she is going too far (she knows next is a zap and she avoids that at all cost). Overall a good investment for us.

My sheperd like to chase everything and forgot about where she;s at. I got this training collar and now i call her she comes right away .Before i had the collar she wouldn't listen but after about 2 or 3 shocks I didn't need the pins anymore. She needs to be reminded with the beeper from time to time but thats all I need ..works great wish I had it years ago ,,thanks

This is a great tool, love the versatility of settings. Prongs could be longer though - I need to shave the neckhair on my dog to ensure continuous contact. Batteries could last a little longer. If you leave the collar on all day like I do.

I have found this product to be most effective without having to use the shock, just the tone. My Bichon/Shihtzu puppy has responded so well to this product. I would definitely recommend it and have had others who witnessed the transformation very impressed with the results.

I bought this product so that I could hike with my dog off-leash without fear he would wander and chase a critter or another dog. My dog has had excellent obedience training and is very well behaved, but at only 15 months old his desire to go play with another dog on the hiking trail was sometimes stronger than his desire to listen to a recall command. Now with the collar, he can run back and forth and all around while we hike and he gets so much more excercise compared with being leashed! I have had the collar several months now and have only had to shock him twice. He usually doesn't even need a warning beep now, he just obeys. The only thing I would change is that the remote doesn't have an on/off switch and the buttons could accidently be pushed if in your pocket, but I just keep the remote on the enclosed string and slip-knot it to my beltloop.

Good functionality, Good quality. Well planned. Was great tool for training my four year old adopted Dalmation. Highly recommend it. Suggest changing collar to snap type in place of the buckle type to facilitate putting on and removing from dog.

We have a very active Boxer who would run from us and the catch game was on...We purchased other collars online...they were either cheap, didn't work or were of poor quality...not only does this collar work great (we have had it for about 3 months)it's easy to use and has a lifetime exchange if there are ever any problems simply bring it in to pet smart for an exchange..well worth every penny....Kevin

"This is only as good as it's handler. No dog should be subject to electric shock repeatedly, and is not a substitute for close proximity and time teaching.
It is effective, and merely needs typically one use of shock and the beep is enough to get the response. Timing is everything, EXACTLY when the negative behavior occurs, and lots of praise when it stops or is done right.
this is not for impatient or frustrated owners."
