contact points came out with 1st use , 4/8/14
by
noted contact points came out on the first use and I caught that they were out and found them. I tightened them and then used it for 5 days and had the contact points come out again! I can not find them and now need to reorder them. Very disappointing quality for out of the box.

Please know that we do offer the replacement probes that you need through our Customer Care, and would be happy to offer replacement options. For assistance, please call 1-800-732-2677. We look forward to hearing from you!

Contact point came out on first use, 4/1/14
by
We do not know how the collar works on our lab yet as one of the contact points came out about 15 minutes after we put it on the dog. Of coarse, the pet store we purchased it from does not sell just this part alone, so we have to order it and pay for the part and the shipping for it. I would think that after spending this much on the collar that this would not be an issue. At this time, I will give a bad rating until this is resolved and we have a chance to see how it works.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We do apologize to hear that you experienced trouble with your Remote Trainer! We can understand how frustrating it must be to purchase a product and experience and issue within its first use. Please know that the Contact Probes are designed to be removed and exchanged with probes of a different length if needed. We suggest to ensure the Contact Probes are tightly in place prior to each use. If your local retailer does not carry these items, we would be happy to offer replacement assistance! Please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677. We look forward to hearing from you!

it's OK, 2/23/14
by
It breaks down easily and is not hyperactive dog proof. I have only had it for about two months and I'm buying replacement prongs for a second time and replacement batteries. This product could at least last a little longer before shelling out more money out of my pocket after already paying $150.

Prongs came out, 2/19/14
by
I don't like to complain but I ordered this for my blue healer and she only wore it for 2 days when the prongs came out. It worked well up until that point. For 140 dollars I just expected a little more out of it. I would also buy 2 more plus the wireless fence. I realize that sometimes you just get a item that wasn't up to par but I'm scared to buy more at that cost to find out.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We appreciate your time and feedback on your Remote Trainer. We are sorry to hear that you encountered a problem with your contact points! Please know that these probes are designed to be removed in case they need to be replaced. It is recommended to ensure the contact points are tight prior to each use. If your receiver collar is damaged and the probes will not stay on the device, please contact our Customer Care at 1-800-732-2677 for replacement options.

Good product, 2/4/14
by
I really like this product. Works well on my stubborn 125 lb. german shepherd. However, the prongs are a little short for his thick coat. I heard I can get longer prongs for this. Where do I find them? Thanks.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear that you've had success with your Big Dog Static Remote Trainer! The longer probes can be purchased by contacting our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677. We also have Flex Contact Points which are not only a little longer than the short probes on your collar, but also will "flex" with your dog's movements! They are available on our website, and you can purchase them by using the link below.

Great when it works...but eventually it breaks., 1/19/14
by
I have been using these collars for almost 8 years. I have had several, because they break, eventually. The prongs fall out or the the plastic components snap in half. I have had a couple that had a rechargeable battery which was great. But now it seems like you are forced to buy the ones with replaceable batteries- a money scheme? I don't like the fact that these collars break so easily. In the beginning, Pet Safe allowed me to send one back and get a new one. I have had 5 pet safe collars thus far. It is an expensive investment, but allows me to keep my dog safe from the highway on which we live. I would be happy to have the plug-in/recharging collar again.


PETSAFE RESPONSE:

Battery life small, 1/5/14
by
Collar works great but the only problem I have is the battery life on the collar doesn't last more than 2 weeks. Why is the battery draining so quickly? It's a watch battery so I should last... I have been through 3 sets of batteries.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear you've had success with your Big Dog Static Remote Trainer, but we are sorry to hear you are experience trouble with your batteries! To prolong battery life, we suggest to turn off the collar when not in use. The batteries can last between 1 to 3 months, depending on how frequently you use the Training System.

100% Satisfied, 12/25/13
by
Got this product at the recommendation if the breeder. We have a very high energy , very athletic hunting Labrador. This allows her to run untethered in the yard or woods. I use a vocal correction, then tone only, then static if necessary. She learned on the first day to respond to my vocal command. Now I only use the tone. I have not even needed the static correction in weeks. This even stopped her dead in her tracks at my command from chasing a bunch of deer we encountered in the field. If you love your dog, get this collar. It's better than a fence because it goes wherever we go, plus it demands one-on-one time with your pet.
