tone works great but static jolt doesn't work very well, 10/17/14
I bought this collar to help with breaking some of my 9 month old lab's bad habits, including putting his feet up on the counters and getting into the garbage can. Even on the highest level, doesn't appear to work well. I have tested and it is working and I even replace the prongs with longer ones. He doesn't appear to be fazed by this at all and doesn't acknowledge when the button is pressed.
The tone button is working great for some of the training we do with him though.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are sorry to hear of the problems you are experiencing with the static correction not affecting your pup, and we would be happy to help! If you have tested the collar and know that the static correction is working properly, his lack of response could be due to his thick coat. We would recommend to check the positioning of the collar, and ensure that it is secured high on your lab's neck (close to the ears) and tight enough where you are only able to put 1 finger in between the probe and the dog's neck. This collar does have 16 different levels of intensity, and depending on your lab's behavior, it may be necessary to increase the level of static correction that he is feeling.

Worked well until..... , 10/13/14
We bought this collar for our Pit /Lab mix. It worked great for about a month until a washer piece came off that keeps the collar from sliding over the medal prong. It still works, but with only one prong making contact it doesn't phase our dog at all. I came to the Pet Safe site hoping to purchase a replacement piece, but the piece we need is not offered. I guess we'll try Lowe's.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing with your Big Dog Static Remote Trainer! Please know that we do offer replacement probes through our Customer Care Center, and the FlexContacts are also compatible!

Worked great until it meet my escape dogs, 8/28/14
The devices were working great, until my two, to smart for their own good lab mix dogs, found a way to easily get the collars off and lose them. That is my only problem. Of course my oldest dog (2yrs.) has been really, really good at escaping from nearly every make and model of harness and collar known to me. They did kindly replace them since they were under warranty though. The customer service was great, kind, helpful, and knowledgable.I will work with them both after I get my new ones.
