Wish the collar could snap on and the tone volume could be adjustable., 3/26/14
by
We got this collar because it was rechargeable. Previously, we had a battery operated collar made by Sportdog that was constantly needing new batteries. This PetSafe collar is easy to charge, and it seems to work. The two things I miss about our first, battery-operated collar are that it had a snap/latch connector that made the collar super easy to put on the dog. The PetSafe collar is plastic with many many notches, and it's a pain to put on every time. I have to relocate the correct notch while the dog gets impatient. He's still a puppy and growing, so we don't want to cut too much off yet. It will be easier when we shorten the length, but never as convenient as the latch collar. The second thing is that the tone volume is quieter than the first collar we had, and I wish I could turn it up. The good dog signal is especially quiet. Finally, our dog (a mini Aussie) responded like a charm to the collar until this week (about 6 weeks?). The collar is still working--lights up, makes sound, tester registers a shock--but the dog doesn't come back anymore. That's why I'm wondering if the volume needs turned up. He comes better for the battery-operated collar, and I prefer that collar except that the cost of replacement batteries is too high.

Excellent product - excellent service, 3/11/14
by
Works very well with my app. 90 lbs. Rottweiler/Shepherd/Aussie mix - a spoilt, not very easy to manage 1 and a 1/2 year old - even at the lowest setting. Had some problem after about a year with the signal not getting to the collar. Called customer service. After working with me on the phone to fix it, they sent me a new one. Definitely worth the price. And excellent customer service.

Worked great for 3 years, 2/21/14
by
I've had this collar since early 2011. Just within the last few weeks (2014), it has lost range. Even fully charged, I have to be within five (5) feet of my dog for it to work. And that is just using the tone function - I haven't had to actually shock my dog since the first week I had the collar, just the sound of the beep was enough. I'm upset enough to go with a different brand this time.

Great Training Tool, 1/31/14
by
I have had mine for over 2 years and still works great. My dog gets in the pool with his all the time and it still works. I also left the remote outside during a winter wet storm for a week and it still works great. Great product!!

Worked great for short time, 1/29/14
by
Wasted $150 and just like the other reviews very very short life of the product. Noticed at 5 to 6 months shorter charge life. We are now out of warranty and does not hold a charge for the collar at all. I have myself to blame for not returning, but from the other reviews we would just had another useless device within another few months. We have invested in another brand and hope it gets a better service life.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear you encountered this problem with your Yard and Park Remote Trainer! We can understand your frustration when a product doesn't seem to last as long as expected. Please know that this product does include a 1 year limited warranty, and if you do experience a shorter charge life, we do offer replacement assistance even if you are out of warranty or have lost a receipt.

Good for 3 months; waste of money, 1/26/14
by
This worked great for about three or four months, right outside of the warranty period. Took it back to PetSmart, who actually honored it against policy for a one-time return. That one lasted about three months, also. Called PetSafe. The customer service rep basically told me too bad, unless I want to pay for a replacement transmitter and shipping, which cost nearly the same as the entire product. She said it was pro-rated, and since I told her that PetSmart had already exchanged it once, at PetSmart's expense, no less, then I had nothing to complain about, and the pro-rate would cover six months, not three, and she wasn't too nice about it, either. THE WORST PART, though, is that the collar stopped working while we were in the field. I am VERY lucky my year old GSP puppy came finally came back before she got to the road, as I am too old to chase her down on foot for two or more miles at 35 mph. Honestly think she only turned back because she realized her partner in crime (the older, better-trained shorthair) wasn't right with her any more. Thanks a lot for taking my money, "PetSafe." Your product stopped working after 3 months, TWICE, and your customer service is HORRIBLE.

PETSAFE RESPONSE:

We apologize that you have had this experience. This PetSafe product is covered by a one year limited warranty with a copy of the original receipt/invoice. Please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 so that we may provide a possible solution. We look forward to hearing from you.

Great shock collar!, 1/21/14
by
First of all I HAD to put shock collar. Been using them for years and makes me angry that due to society etc they must be called remote trainers or e-collars. Call it what it is. It's a shock collar.
FOLKS... Also PLS realize the entire point of the shock collar is to NOT shock your dog. Lookup Pavlovian Theory. Negative TONE and your dog will (with the Great PetSafe Yard and Park Trainer) learn what the deal is within probably 24-48 hours depending on how you've raised your dog up til now...probably not so great if you're looking for a shock collar lol.
My other one died (DIFFERENT brand btw) so I ordered a PetSafe one and it's great! The reason for 4 stars is due to a mistake on my part lol. I just think all shock collars NEED a vibrate button. This one has a separate Negative tone button and Positive tone button. I guess I can't really knock it til I try it but I've always been a form believer of the Vibrate button. The Vibrate button is or should be your main tool. NOT the shock. We shall see how negative/positive tones work vs tone and vibrate as alternatives to shock.
These collars are the best thing ever invented for training ANY DOG. Check > weight requirements but almost any dog.
Thanks for a so far so good new shock collar.
I'll leave another review once my dog has been trained with it.
Have a 1.5 yr old Presa and he's the poster child breed of dogs that should be trained with this tool.
For all you people who think it's hurting the dog... You are plain wrong and don't have any idea about what you're talking about. I never said it doesn't have potential to hurt a dog but that then falls on the OWNER. Be a responsible pet owner and not an a$$hole.
Thanks again PETSAFE!!!!

Stopped working after 5 months, 1/17/14

This product was great for hiking with my dog as it let him run around and burn off steam while still keeping him under control. However, the collar and remote stopped working after 5 months and the replacement parts sent by PetSafe also didn't work.

Awesome product, 1/13/14
by
I have a deaf Dalmatian and this collar works great on him. He barks a lot and this product helps to keep it under control. I've had to call customer service for some troubleshooting and they sent me a replacement instead!! (The receiver wouldn't turn on) I just want to thank you for great customer service and a great product!!
