1) The longer prongs were included in the box, i'm not sure if he got a knock off or just didn't see them, but they are there.
2) Other guy who had his clasp come off with a leash, the manual clearly says DO NOT use the collar with a leash, have the dog wear a separate collar if your going to take it for a walk, think about it, if its on a leash the prongs are digging into the skin and if the dog ever pulls on the leash that has to hurt it. So I suggest you read the manual. Shock collars are not designed to replace the main collar's duties such as walks, it's solely there for disciplinary and training actions.
Now that that's off my chest I can tell you guys that you will not be disappointed by this collar. The receiver is small and lightweight as is the transmitter. It has 7 shock settings, a tone button, and a vibrate setting. I used the tone, vibrate, shock method with my dog and it took her one day to realize a tone meant a shock was coming and now I rarely have to shock her, I just give her a tone.
I've heard complaints that there is no safety switch so you might accidentally shock your dog. There is no way that could happen.. the buttons are flush with the rest of the remote and are not that sensitive, so an accidental shock is unlikely, plus if your that worried about it switch it to vibrate, that doesn't hurt the dog in anyway.
Were going on about a month of owning this collar and it still performs fantastically, its 100% water proof and has performed even after the countless times my dog decided to roll around in the mud and then go swim in the river, its never failed on me. A charge lasts me about 4-8 days depending on how often I use it and charging time is probably only about 2 hours.
This product has surely met my expectations and then some and i'm sure it will meet yours. My dog is by far more obedient now then it was before I purchased this collar and it was one of the best purchases I made for her. Hopefully this helped you guys out!
We could see why she was given up.
Then we tried this collar and it was a MIRACLE. We read and followed the training guide and she responded to the immediate feedback right away and it changed her life. She now listens and understands her place in our home. She is much less nervous and has stopped destroying her home as she is comfortable in her role as a dog. We can allow her off leash at our lake home where she can swim and chase tennis balls with no concern that she will hunt the ducks etc. or run away to play with neighbor children who may be frightened of her. She listens and even if she gets out the front door as a guest comes in, she comes right back instead of dashing off into the street.
In short, it might seem cruel to use a shock collar but it is quite the opposite. The Sportdog Field Trainer might seem like a hunting dog tool but it is really a family dog maker too. For our dog, it actually gave her freedom and we get compliments on how well she listens all the time since we have used the collar. Wouldn't be without this powerful tool when training.
I am not a hunter, so I don't use the Field Trainer to "work" my dogs. I have two lovely rescue dogs - neither clearly ever lived inside a home before we met. They peed in the house, chewed on whatever they pleased, dug up my ENTIRE garden. I used to cry because they were so bad. We worked with them on a lot of their issues, but some seemed impossible. Long story short - my 40 lbs beagle pit bull mix is very strong and follows his nose - the best of both breeds. I couldn't keep him under control if he saw another dog, a lizard, bunny, etc. My smaller 25 lb mutt also has a very strong prey drive and is absolutely nasty to other dogs...but only when she's on a leash. Leash laws...she's always on a leash when off property.
With PROPER USE, these collars have been a wonderful TOOL.
Proper use: you're using electronic means to train your dog, not punish them. Read every word of the manual and training booklet, watch the DVD that comes with the set. I tried the collar on myself so I know exactly what it feels like. I would consider my dogs both to be "stubborn" but I only use the lowest power setting (see my first paragraph) and generally use the 1-3 levels on the dial and only go up to 5 if I've lost them and their senses are overly heightened. I wouldn't even mess with the Stubborn Dog model.
Tool: The collar shouldn't be the only method you use. We walk, hike, they run alongside when I bike. I use treats and games to teach verbal and nonverbal commands. "Exercise, disciple, then affection." My dogs have manners because I work with them consistently at every opportunity. After two years, I trust leaving my dogs off leash with plenty of distractions to tempt them. I put the collars on and often don't even use the remotes.
I've put in 1000% effort so these dogs will never see the shelter again. I've read books, watch videos, gone to classes, shelled out $$ on one-on-one sessions. It was all worth it, but the remote collar has been invaluable...as a part of an entire routine.
