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 decide to purchase an electric collar for my dog after using one lent to us by a friend. It worked wonders for my dog and worked very well. I can not remember the brand of it but it was way overkill for what we needed, one remote (easy to use one button) for 6 different collar 3 mile range waterproof rechargeable remote and collar. It was awesome! So I go to my local pet stores and find the only one in town that even carries "shock collars" pet safe was the only brand that they carried. I spoke with one of the workers and went over features picked out the basic model feeling that it should adequately meet our needs after establishing our collar training.
There is no comparison!
This collar works well for what i need but it has a HORRIBLE! design! I love the tone feature but don't understand why there is two when you couldn't hear A over a whisper its useless. The remote has too many buttons its awkward to use. I like the idea of the level adjuster on the side but its way to easy to bump that while its in your hand from level I to III and you end up lighting your dog up like the fourth of July. Not cool. I had good range with my unit but it seemed to be intermittent that it would even work sometimes even with good batteries in it. Now the batteries.... just dumb. Mine did not fall out but it has turned it self off a few times. It is very difficult to turn off and on. It goes through batteries quickly the ones it came with anyways. I put new batteries in and had used it several times after with out much issue but now all of the sudden when I turn it on it dose its beep and starts a loud constant tone that will not stop until the batteries are taken out. So now my medico-er collar has gone from OK to absolutely useless. Not to mention it totally freaked my dog out when it happened.

I have owned this collar since November. We had to replace it in December due to a family member loosing the remote. This was a down fall, but the customer service rep was great. Got me a new one at the same price I paid for the old one. Every time I have had an issue I can contact them and they have help me figure it out or replaced the part that I need. As far as the collar goes, we just recently learned that there is an off switch on the battery door. Other wise we were going through batteries like crazy. Now not as much. I have a dog that loves to run and normally we have to chase her by a busy road. Well not with this collar on and working. She comes back as soon as my husband or I hit the shock button. She even responds to the tones when she is outside. Best money so far that we have invested in.
