My wife was horrified at the idea I would choose to purchase a 'shock collar'. I explained that I've used them before while training dogs and 'shock' is probably not an accurate term if used correctly. The aim should not be to hurt or punish the dog. Rather, just get the dog's attention when distracted by other stimulus (this is my opinion, anyway). Instructions should be read carefully before using this device.
My fear is people will purchase this device and use it incorrectly. Used incorrectly, this could really be a cruel device; creating a cowering and neurotic dog. If you're hesitating, remember that the person operating the device controls whether it is a cruel device or not. The dog should be trained to know and respond to your commands BEFORE you use this device. Please take advantage of many videos and articles available on the internet which demonstrate proper training and use of stim collars. Dogtra could improve the product by including a DVD or book with training tips. There are lots of ways to use this device but it is not an english-to-canine translator. ('nuf said.)
The collar has adjustable stim settings from 0-127. Previous collars I've used did not offer this amount of control. I really think the ability to fine-tune it is important. Our dog responds when the transmitter is set to 17. I can't even imagine using it set to 127. I wonder if the dog would simply disappear in a brilliant flash and a puff of smoke *POOF*. I required everyone in the house to get 'shocked' by the collar set at 20 before they were permitted to use it on the dog and instructed not to use it above 20. This setting provided a sensation similar to pins and needles when applied to the palm of my hand. My 11 year-old son said it tickled and pulled his hand away. Some dogs or situtations may require a higher setting, especially while highly stimulated or distracted, e.g. chasing another dog or pursuing 'prey'. This can be done with the turn of the knob on top of the transmitter. The digital display shows the current setting.
The result of of our training using this collar has been nothing short of amazing. I used stimulation (at 17) during about 45 minutes of on-lead training to reinforce commands she already knew. I've only had to used the stim button twice. This was the first time I let her off lead. My wife and sons say they've only used it one time; only the first time they had her off-lead. The collar also has a paging mode which makes the collar vibrate like a typical cell phone. I've tried this but did not train her with it. She looked confused the first time I used it but she did look back at me and obeyed my command. From now on, I think I'll use it first.
Overall, I really believe it's made her life more enjoyable. She's able to run freely and play off-lead which she really loves. We have not had to push ANY buttons on the transmitter since those first days of training. Your mileage may vary. For us, this collar has been a miracle.
The collar is made well and a good size. It's easy to set up and use. It recharges easily and the units hold a charge for many uses. The transmitter seems to last longer (must have a larger battery). The LED on the collar indicates when the battery is low. I can confirm it's waterproof since she's been swimming several times while wearing the collar.
Now as for the collar itself, all I can say is it is like I have a brand new highly trained animal that walks and obeys every command I give him. Before I got the collar my dog was extremely smart and extremely stubborn! He wanted to do only what he felt like doing and obeyed when he was tired of running around. Now he is alert and keeps constant eye contact with me. And for the startling part... I have only had to use the nip button twice, and the vibrate five times! (Yes I was keeping count!) lol, I haven't even turned the collar on for two days, I'm going to see how long I can get away with just putting the collar on him and giving oral commands to him!
As Dogtra advises it is best if your animal knows commands and has some training so they understand that you are trying to communicate with them. I won't say this is the answer for everyones animal problems, but the collar solved my problems almost overnight! I will say if you have no experience with this type of tool don't use it because you could very easily ruin your animal with the abuse of it. As I mentioned earlier, I have only used the nip button twice and have never used the constant button because it simply wasn't needed. Also my dog is a good size animal, almost 100 lbs and I have never raised the level of the controller near the half-way mark. I keep mine in the 25-35 range and it works just fine. But my dog runs up to me now when he sees the collar because he know we are going to have fun and get a good work out together. Well enough of my going on, great product and it worked well for me. I would definately recommend it to others for their dog problems!
