I must confess, with my last doberman and my first time using this model, I tried it on myself first (on 1) on my bicep. Its less of a 'shock' feeling and more like a 'jab'. My last doberman, if it was something he really wanted to do (ex. At the dog park and wanted to keep running away with the other dogs even though I called him back)... I would sometimes get up to 10 and he would just 'plow through' the feeling and continue to do what he wanted. I find my current dog actually fears the 'tone' more than the shock. So I will sound the tone... and if the behavior continues (after I give the command) I will then give 1 jolt.
Good for barking, running into the street, and otherwise breaking ranks. (ex. I did it ONCE when my dog went towards the curb, he never moved to run in the street again for the rest of his life. Even when he ran away from home: they found him down the street... on the sidewalk!)
As the instructions advise, I tried the lowest setting and worked my way up till she registered a reaction. This occurred at level 3 (out of 10); however, I quickly discovered that level 3 didn't faze her when she was worked up, so I now have the remote set at level 5. I had to increase it to 6 a couple of times in the beginning, but I haven't had to lately. It is definitely not hurting her when she gets zapped. Her reaction is more like a surprised "What was that?" I think of this as the same kind of discipline a mother dog exerts by grabbing her misbehaving puppy by the neck.
Overall, this collar has worked like a charm. I have used it to make her sit and calm down when visitors come to the door. I have gotten her to do a leash walk without making it a constant tug of war. (I had been using a Gentle Leader to control her, and that was helpful, but she still pulled.) This is a work in progress. She has to be reminded every minute or so not to pull, but it's getting better. The biggest improvement is in the smack-talk with the dog next door. They have been known to go at each other through the fence for several minutes at a time if no one stops them. And no amount of yelling gets my dog's attention when she's in that mode. Now, when the barking starts, I hit the remote - FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE NO LESS! - and she immediately stops barking. She'll start again in a moment and will stop when she gets another zap. It only takes three zaps for her to stop completely. This is an absolute miracle. My neighbor and I have tried everything to make the dogs stop this noise. This is the first thing that has been truly effective.
I had hoped to train my dog with the tone and zap and then be able to just use the tone. My dog hasn't responded to the tone at all - she hears it and looks around as if to say "Where did that noise come from?" She doesn't associate it with discipline. Since I'm comfortable that the zap doesn't hurt her, and since I really don't have to use it that often, that's okay. I actually use the tone to test the collar to make sure it's working after I turn it on.
An important component of training with this collar is to issue a vocal command before activating the "correction;" otherwise, your dog won't know what behavior you're addressing. Once the dog understands what the tone/zap means, you won't have to do both. In fact, I have found that voice command alone is working much better now, and I don't have to use the collar for every correction.
I have been using it for two weeks, and the progress is amazing. If used correctly, I highly recommend it. I wish they made one for incorrigible cats, because I have one of those, too.
