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.
The batteries do go out after 10 days... but I knew that when I bought it... with that said... only after one day Dayz ( our lab) no longer need the Shock... just the tone... she had become a very well behaved dog thanks to this much needed tool... and the price was well worth it... the remote could have had less buttons... I only need one tone... and a high setting for the shock... sometimes less is more... but I just used the buttons that I needed to... Thanks Petsafe. for a much needed tool and a good value

Bought this yesterday. Pushed the button maybe 4 times and was already blinking low battery. Intermittent if the collar receives the signal or not. And not because of contact but box doesn't register half the time...no indicator light. This morning not responding at all. So after less than a day it is useless. Will replace batteries today but if not improved will be returning this item!! Spend the extra and get a better one and save yourself the hassles!
Thank you for sharing your experience, Levi! We are sorry to hear that the Basic Remote Trainer has not met your needs and expectations, and can understand how this would be frustrating! It is possible that replacement batteries will correct the issue. Please ensure that two fresh CR2032 batteries are stacked positive side up in each piece. It may also be helpful to lift the battery tab a bit inside each unit to ensure the best possible contact. We are here for you for any troubleshooting or warranty information. If you need anything at all give us a call at 1-866-738-4379.
We purchased the static collar in May of 2016. We have had to replace the batteries in the collar 1-2 a month even when not using it a lot. The batteries in the collar died again in June and we replaced them and the controller didn't work. So we changed the batteries in that also. Still does not work. I think for the amount paid for this system its not a very good quality. We have paid into batteries as almost as much as the collar costs.
