" ...  2) the plastic collar is slippery and even if set very tight (too tight) the collar will slip out of position ... 3) my small dog's neck is apparently too small. ... Awkward clip and strap placement if you have a ~12lb dog.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The collar has to be way too tight for the dog to fell the shock.  ...  "
comment
" ...  To begin with, one of the metal prongs already fell off and when I screwed it back on tightly to make sure it didn’t fall off again, it broke off the screw attached to the collar.  ...  "

" ...  Just the simple sound of a "beep" was sufficient to train her.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I haven’t had to go past the sound setting yet, but plan to begin training him to stay in the yard and thought I’d start out at the highest shock level because he’s a runner.  ...  "
comment
" ...  However, I love the sound feature.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I’m able to select between shock, vibrate, or sound and adjust each accordingly.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Miniature Schnauzer--of course he is a barker---But I use the sound selection for him and it has done very well--I would recommend it for the size and the value!!!  ...  "
comment

" ...  What I don't like about it is that the remote doesn't even hold a charge for a day.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Collar refuses to stay paired to the remote.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I also found it frustrating that the beep, vibrate, and shock buttons weren't separate on the remote.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Remote is confusing to use.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We were able to connect one remote to the two collars but not both the remotes so thats a waste.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It only activates about 5% of the time - even if I put the electrodes directly on my finger and point the remote directly at the collar.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The only downside, is that the remote "sleeps" and if you need to do a quick reinforcement, the remote is in sleep mode and didn't turn on quickly.  ...  "

" ...  I like the lightweight design and ability to put buzzer on a different collar.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Collar works great but my cat is so fluffy he was not bothered by the schock so I put the long prongs on and that helped.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I held onto it at the lowest setting and it was a good 2 seconds of shock.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I will say, the shock feature on this collar is VERY strong which is why we would never use it on her.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I also found it frustrating that the beep, vibrate, and shock buttons weren't separate on the remote.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We followed the instruction book and taught her “off” as the majic word and when she doesn’t respond to that we hit the button for a vibrate (we use setting 4) and she immediately corrects.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The trigger button is a bit too small and sometimes when I’m in a hurry I could be pressing other buttons.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They only go off if you press the button.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The controller doesn't have a way of locking to prevent you from pushing buttons and making it go off. ... It does go to "sleep" but if you hit multiple buttons it could be bad.  ...  "
