With a range of up to 250 metres, this trainer lets you manage your furry friend's unwanted behaviour even if he's not wearing a lead. The lightweight Receiver Collar has 8 levels of harmless but annoying electrical stimulation and can fit any dog comfortably. Expandable for use with up to 3 dogs.
We have had this collar for a few years now for our Beagle, typically headstrong for the breed. We had used various different training techniques and accessories including a spray collar previously but bought this on the recommendation of our dog trainer to try and change behaviour around food (our tea time etc). Although it hasn't succeeded in that - (but he's a Beagle and just food obsessed!), it is now a standard on walks for recall, he reacts much better to it than he ever did to whistle or spray collar. I never now use stimulation, only the beeper, and only used the stimulation a very few times at the start. The beeps go on for longer than the beep on the spray collar I had - so I think that is why he responds better to it. I also occasionally use it (not even switched on) when he starts getting a habit of not settling in his crate - a couple of nights in a row wearing the collar (switched off) he doesn't fuss and then we can just go back to normal. I really recommend the product - and also the company's customer service when we had to replace the charger and just now when I ordered a replacement battery.
It means Bo Beagle can wonder (semi) freely on his walks and I have the confidence that he will come back when I need him to - so I think that he would also give it a paws up and a waggly tail.

We bought one of these collars about 3 years ago. We rescued a beautiful pointer/greyhound X. We spend two years and a lot of money training her. She behaved impeccably in the training field but was a nightmare anywhere else. Her worst trait was running off in to danger. We knew she understood what the recall whistle was about she just chose to ignore it if she was more than 5 or 6 metres away. Therefore she became a lead walk only dog. This collar completely transformed her. It has a "beep only"mode which we used after the whistle if she ignored it. That cured most of her bad habit. When her mind was really set on chasing a squirrel or whatever then we selected the vibration mode, increasing until it had an effect on her. (it is very gentle on a low setting) We did this a couple of times and now we only need the "beep only" mode. She has become a really settled and responsive dog. Without a doubt this collar saved her life and our marriage! I really recommend it but make sure your dog understands the commands and read the literature carefully.
