The Basic Remote Trainer makes training easy and affordable for any budget. With a 75 yard range and 12 levels of static stimulation and two tone training options, you can communicate with your dog and reinforce good behavior off-leash.
I even tried the shock collar on myself (no I did not put it on my neck) but knowing that the hand is very sensitive to static touch, I tried the highest setting on myself and I could fully understand why he didn't stop barking - it didn't really deliver that much of a static shock! It wasn't even as "powerful" as rubbing your feet across a carpet creating the static and then touching someone. I would say that act alone would deliver more shock. Now I know I said I wrote a review for the Elite Barking Collar for Big Dogs. I cannot say I did the same thing because that collar is supposed to pick up barking and use the static correction. The one with the remote sent signals using the remote, not a bark. Being that these two are PetSafe brand, I don't think I will be using this brand for any sort of corrective training in the future.
We are sorry to hear that our trainer has not met your needs and expectations, Kelli. Please know that for testing purposes, it is best to place one finger across both probes, to start off low, and slowly work your way up. We start it on a low level to give options for all levels of sensitivity as the lower levels are great for certain temperaments. This trainer has a slider switch on the side for low, medium, and high. This adjusts the strength of the buttons on the front of the remote to create 12 levels. Again, we are terribly sorry that you have had a bad experience. Please know that we are here to help if you have any questions or concerns, give us a call at 1-800-732-2677.
I have bought 3 of these collars. The 1st one is much easier to use: the on/off push button is much easier to use than trying to find a coin to keep turning the other 2 on/off with the cheapo battery pack continously falling out with the slightest movement. You've got to constantly reinsert them. Having arthritic hands makes this a real chore. Also, the 1st collars remote is made of a higher quality, easier to use and hold in your hand or attach it to yourself. The other collars remotes have bubble buttons that Crack (pos)...and hang by a piece of nylon thread. I wouldn't recommend buying these PetSafe Collars. There are many better one's available which are ergonomic friendly and less expensive along with a longer range, waterproof, etc.

We have a Rottweiler masstive Ridgeback cross he is 11 months old and weighs 105 pounds and we've had the shock collar for two weeks and our dog has done a full 360° turn around we couldn't praise this unit high enough we have shocked him maybe 5 times in 2 weeks the rest of the time he responds with just the high-frequency beep if we would have brought this earlier it would have saved us 200$ at puppy school our dog comes back to us when called brings the ball back and puts it in our hands and responds to voice commands we are so happy
