all good but what about the batteries, 6/13/14
so we bought 2 of them for our dogs and they are responding just fine. as soon as they hear the hear the beep they stop and behave like the good dogs they can be. when the collar works that is. in less than one month we have used up the original batteries (4 set of 2 ) and now the first collar is blinking red again. I am begining to worry about the trustworthiness of them. dont think I should have to replace them that often. never had to for any other device in the past . anyhow, they are fine and do what they are supposed to.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are happy to hear you have had success with your Big Dog Static Remote Trainers and your 2 dogs! We do understand your concern for the battery life, however, and we would be happy to offer troubleshooting assistance. The average battery life for this system is up to 1-3 months depending on use. If you are experiencing the low battery indicator (1 flash every 5 seconds) on your receiver collar, we would recommend to remove both batteries from the receiver, and while the batteries are not in the device, press and hold the power button on the collar for 15 seconds, and replace the batteries. When inserting the batteries, ensure that both of the CR-2032 batteries are facing "+" side up. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 for further troubleshooting and replacement assistance.

Exceeded our expectations!, 6/12/14
I own three large breed dogs (a very stubborn but adorable Redbone Coonhound, Golden Retriever, Flat-Coated Retriever) and a medium sized Pit Bull mix. All are rescues that were rescued at different ages. Our dogs have not had any "official" training except by us (we are not professionals) and there's a lot of room for improvement in that department. They know basic commands but often we have to say them more than once to get them to listen. We had all the dogs with us at our local pet store (never an easy feat let me tell you!) and they pulled us all over the store, got into stuff and our anxiety ridden boy pooped in the middle of the store. I hooked my larger dogs leashes into the child safety seat in the buggy so they could walk in stride with the buggy and me. This always works well for me and them. The two smaller dogs (90 lbs and 55 lbs respectively) my stubborn husband had on leashes that he was holding. It was these two that were greatly misbehaving. We were buying pet life-jackets to take on a boating trip the next day. We wanted to teach the dogs to jump off the boat and retrieve a retrieve stick.

Anyway, I passed a display of Petsafe training devices while listening to our boy bark incessantly because I moved more than 10 feet from him. Frustrated I hooked his leash into the buggy with the girls and he settled down. I have wanted to buy an e-trainer for the longest time but didn't want to hurt my dogs or cause them to fear me. I have discussed this with multiple trainers and watch Ceasar's shows to learn how to do things better. I purchased the RFA-473 and read the manual that evening and tried the levels out on ourselves to make sure that it wouldn't hurt the dogs. We mostly used the collar on our boy (90 lbs with loads of long fur!) and it worked better than we expected! He responded beautifully to it and it immediately corrected unwanted behavior without hurting him. I wish WISH that I had purchased this sooner! We just need 3 more!

Don't waste your money, 5/6/14
We bought this trainer for our 40 lb. 6 month old lab. She doesn't even flinch when set on the highest settings. We tried trimming her neck hair but that made no difference. We purchased a different brand - dog responded immediately. After just a few days - all we need to do is put the collar on her - don't even use the remote anymore!
