Excellent, 4/6/14
by
Had my dog trained of bad habits within 2 weeks and now my neighbor likes me again lol two problems fixed at the same time and that was barking (which was my neighbors problem with my dog while I was at work) and digging,when properly used it was fantastic and the key is shaving a bit of fur from the neck to get good connection which was my problem when the first day I used it that it didn't seem to work with my dog because I didn't take enough fur off around the neck.worth every penny

My Mastiff could care less about this, 3/6/14
by
My dog, an English Mastiff, barely flinches at this thing, I tested it on the back of my hand at full strength and it does shock, but it seems weak. He certainly doesn't care enough to stop what hes doing. I probably wouldn't recommend this collar, and this was the best/most expensive model from this brand, not worth the money.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear that this Remote Trainer did not meet your expectations! We understand how frustrating it must be to not have your Mastiff respond to his training device! If you have felt a correction, and you know the product is working, you may want to ensure proper collar fit by placing the receiver high on dog’s neck close to his ears. The fit should be snug, allowing 1 finger to fit between the end of contact point and dog’s neck. If the fit does not help with your mastiff, there may be other products available that could be more suitable for him. If you'd like to discuss your issue further, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 so that we can help find a solution.

Great product, even better customer service, 3/4/14
by
This product will change your life! Best $200 I've ever spent on a pet. If you want total control over your dog and feel like you have a invisible leash on them at all times they have on the collar then do yourself a favor and buy your pet one. It has completely changed my dogs behavior. She now understands commands better then you could ever imagine.
I never have to worry about her wondering off. If she does one beep of the collar via remote and she comes running. It is absolutely unbelievable!

Had a problem with the collar so I called customer service and they sent me a new collar no questions asked. They never tried to blame me or anything just said we will replace the collar and they did.
Finally a company that stands by and backs their product.

worked great for a few months, 3/4/14
by
this product worked great for 3 months and then would only work from 10' or less I do electronics for a living and have made sure it was fully charged and tried every channel combination to make sure it was not the issue. I have contacted customer service and they were very friendly and offered a replacement with a copy of receipt. I will give another unit a try and let you know how well it does.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We appreciate your feedback on your Elite Big Dog Static Remote Trainer. We do apologize that you encountered problems with your first device, but we are happy to hear that we were able to find a solution for you.

Loved it...until it stopped working, 2/25/14
by
We bought this collar and an extra one (with having two dogs) and were beyond excited about it. It worked great, the dogs (Great Dane and English Mastiff) responded to the alerts and they were able to wear them all over.

However, the BIG down side, the collars stopped working a year and a couple months after we got them, shortly after the warranty expired. They were very expensive for the short time they worked. I would easily rate this product a 5 had it lasted, but it didn't so I wouldn't buy them again because approximately 300 dollars for a year-long item is just not worth the money.

incredibly effective, 2/23/14
by
I have a difficult dog who we tried everything imaginable to get trained and under control -- from professional trainers to classes to even a pet psychologist. Nothing worked until we bought the PetSafe Big Dog Static Collar. Literally two days of stimulation only when needed, and he is a calm, well-behaved dog. I always knew that dogs behaved well when they simply knew "what to do without question." Other methods were not able to create that clarity for him; this did. We are thrilled. For anyone who is worried that these collars are inhumane or not necessary, I can assure you they are simply effective methods of getting more strong-willed dogs to pay attention so they can learn and remember what gets rewarded. I give it 4 instead of 5 stars simply because it required a screwdriver to assemble. Great, effective product = happy dog and happy home.

Not worth the money, 2/23/14
by
The static did not last long in this collar. Never got wet or anything, but does not work anymore. I really need it but can not afford to replace 2 of them because they are a bit high dollar.

Work for a few weeks, 2/23/14
by
Bought it and began training at around 6 months of age. Worked for a while, then the dog ( a Lab) got used to it and would hardly respond to it. I used the tester and it said it was still working. I waited for a few months and used it again and the dog only responded the first two times I used it. After that the dog would not even twitch at a level 15, I think that he actually started to enjoy the static shock. tested it on my arm and I didn't like it. put it on the dog and he would sit wagging his tail as if nothing was the matter.

Feel like I wasted my money
