Now you can experience the difference a Remote Trainer can make. The Big Dog Deluxe Remote Trainer is comfortable for your pet and easy to use with an advanced digital display that tells you exactly what level of stimulation you are using. The Remote Trainer assists you in controlling your pet without a lead in a range of up to 900m. The handheld remote sends a signal activating your dog's receiver collar. He receives a safe but annoying stimulation. He'll quickly learn the association between his behaviour and your training; in no time, you'll have a better-behaved pet. The Big Dog Deluxe Remote Trainer has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for both small and large dog breeds.
Excellent product, effective and very reliable. I previously owned the PAC system which was FOREVER losing the connection to the collars and eventually went in the bin. Easy to programme, easy to use. As I live in a livestock area we needed our dogs safe off lead around sheep/goats and this has worked quickly and effectively. The collar can be set to the level the dog responds to and no more, the tone/beep has been used for recall training with treats and overall our quality of life and the dogs has improved immeasurably. Used correctly and sparingly this is not at all cruel and so much better than yelling your head off and being ignored. The UNEXPECTED bonus from this is that the dogs are so much more responsive to simple voice command, because they now know there is something to back it up. A simple yell of 'NO' or 'LEAVE' can now stop them in their tracks without even touching the handset.
One major issue is that the contact points for charging are so very tiny that after a few years they get worn or broken so the collars no longer charge. Please consider changing this to make the contact points a lot more robust.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Sarah, thanks so much for your review and comments about the Big Dog Deluxe Remote Trainer. It's super to hear that your dogs are so responsive to it and that they even listen so much quicker to simple voice commands. We love hearing that the quality of life for both your dogs and you has improved. We will take your point into consideration for future design of our product. Thanks again.
We had all but given up hope with our 2.5 year old Korthals Griffon and it was looking like a lifetime of walks on the lead. Having already been down the dog training route, our beautiful HPR was becoming a liability, not responding to recall and disappearing into the hedgerow and woodland for long spells. We started using the PetSafe ST-900-BD about 2 months ago and the changes in our dogs behaviour have been outstanding. She now runs freely off the lead, responds to whistle every time and has completely stopped the disappearing out of site behaviour. We have only used the static stimulation a couple of times, the tone is often enough to gain the dogs attention but to be honest it is now just used as a safety device. Our dog had started displaying some aggressive behaviour with some smaller breeds whilst she was on the lead, this behaviour has also stopped. If you have a stubborn/intelligent dog and you have tried other training methods without success I can’t recommend this product enough. Our dogs quality of life has improved due to this collar and we can now enjoy walks without the worries. Customer service from PetSafe has also been excellent.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Paul, it's fantastic that your young Korthals Griffon is responding so well to the product and that she can now run freely without disappearing! It's also great that you don't have to use the stimulation very often, it sounds like your dog has learned very quickly! Thank you for recommending the product and for the feedback on our customer service :)
Firstly I received excellent after sales support after I reported my system had a fault with it delivering a high static surge on occasion even on low levels. Both the shop where I purchased the equipment (Petworld in Letterkenny) and Petsafe themselves contacted me after I reported the problem and Petsafe immediately sent out a replacement receiver collar. I suppose when your supplying quality equipment you don't get many complaints and can then put great effort into helping those few that do have problems. Five stars for service guys.
As for the collar itself I am having problems getting it to make contact with the skin of my Long Haired German Shepard even with the long probes (which are not supplied as an option with the system unusually) I may now need to shave his hair or wait until his lighter summer coat arrives. Either way I will use the time to continue to teach him my commands until I can reinforce them with the system.
> PetSafe Response: Thank you Sean for your excellent review. We're happy to hear that you received good after-sales support. We recommend to brush the undercoat of your dog really well in order for the prongs to make contact with the skin of your long haired German Shepard. You can also try to cut back the hair in the area where the prongs touch the skin, especially if the coat is really long. In the meantime, we will drop you an e-mail to advise you further and help you with the continued training of your dog. Thanks again for your comments Sean.
