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 bought this stupid thing to train my dog but it is not even worth putting it on him. It only works a quarter of the time, usually it just does NOTHING! Biggest waste of money ever! Will switch to another brand, not even chancing it with this brand any more.
PETSAFE RESPONSE :
Thank you for sharing your experience, Jessica. We are terribly sorry to hear of the trouble that you have had with your Basic Static Remote Trainer. It is very likely that with some troubleshooting we can get your system up and running. For troubleshooting, please give us a call at 1-866-738-4379.
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.
