It worked great - then abruptly stopped, 8/16/14
We purchased this about a month ago and worked wonders for about a week. Our 90+lb lab was a completely different dog. One day while working with him outside, it unexpectedly quit working resulting in a runaway dog.

I contacted customer care and went through the troubleshooting process in which "passed" the test. We replaced batteries and it still does not work on our dog. It shocks, we can see his fur move but does not phase him any longer.

I am not sure if it needs longer prongs, or if there is something wrong with it - but it is useless at this point.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear of the trouble you've experienced with your Big Dog Static Remote Trainer! We can understand how frustrating it must be to have purchased a product that doesn't seem to work for your pet! Please know we will be attempting to contact you to offer troubleshooting assistance. Depending on the length and thickness of your lab's fur, it may be possible that the probes are unable to make proper contact with his skin. If you are using the short probes, longer probes may be necessary. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677.

AWSOME, 8/8/14
This collar is a life saver. I have a big dog just over one year and 80 pounds already. He learned very quickly to respond to the beep so I do not have to shock him. I beep him and he listens to my commands. I have small grandchildren that he would jump on and knock down and scratch but now he knows better and the kids can play with him without getting hurt. Also I left the collar down on the table where he got it and chewed it so it would not stay on him. I called the company and they sent me a replacement free of charge. So if you are looking for something to train a hardheaded dog I would highly recomend this. Yes depending on useage you might have to change batteries every month or so but I do not find that a problem because the peace I get from not having to chase and disipline the dog and no screaming grandkids is worth it. May I also say that I can take him for a walk without a leash and he will not run off or chase things. He might start to chase something but a quick beep and he stops and returns to my side. Can't say enough good things about this company and their products.

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.
