    After 4 years… eagerly buying my 2nd remote trainer, December 5, 2010

    Four years ago, I purchased the PDT00-10603 generation of this product and I continue to be an avid consumer of this product. I am pasting my prior review below. But, I would like to provide an update on concerns over cruelty, which I go into with the prior review.

    I use the trainer to control my dog during hikes and it works. When I pull it out and place the trainer on the counter, my dog jumps up and barks with excitement. While it charges, she lies down and “baby sits” the charger. This demonstrates, in part, that Tobi does not have any issues with this device or concerns over cruelty. It’s a great tool!

    ————————

    Subject: Wonderful tool; fixed a critical issue

    My wife and I love to hike with our German Shepherd. However, her (the dog) behavior had become an issue. Whenever, she sees another dog or horse, she loses her mind, and we lose control of her. We did not want to resolve ourselves to hike with her on a leash.

    Now that we have this device she “comes” on command, and not on the second or third time we call. She comes the first time, and to my hand. Now we can hike with her, and gain control when we see dogs, horses, and those who do not share our enthusiasm for dogs.

    I like to add this devise is not cruel in any form. It has a dial of 8 settings. I tried it on myself. I could not feel “1” at all. “2” and “3” tingled. “4” felt uncomfortable (not painful), and that is where our dog is set.

    The only issue is at home. We have an “invisible fence”, which works on a very similar principle. The issue is that when I “beep” her or “zap” her at home, she becomes very confused. Hence, we only use it primarily for our hikes, which was our desired goal anyways.

    The conclusion is that I highly recommend it for hiking or rather “off-leash” walks. You may have mixed results at home, if you have an “invisible fence”. Although without the “invisible fence” issue, I believe it would be very effective for any sort of training.

    Bottom line is that it works and I wish had I bought this tool earlier.

    My rescue dog is a Flat Coated Retriever. She has become more and more disobedient over the months since I have gotten her. I love her very much, but was at the end of my rope and was ready to return her after she repeatedly ran into the 55 mph road right off my acreage. She also found it necessary to run into the farmers field adjacent to my yard so she could entice the neighbor’s 3 border collies in an aggressive attempt at dominance. Although I have huge yard, it would not be cost effective to fence in 12 acres. Let me also say that my dog KNOWS the commands, “come”, “sit”, “stay”, “drop it”, and “no”. She would obey these commands indoors, but once we got outside, no amounts of cut up steak would entice her into obeying if she had seen or smelled a squirrel or rabbit. I had also attempted to change her behavior by asserting my dominance as the pack leader. If she disobeyed me, I would immediately tell her “NO”, and make her lay down on her side for 10 minutes while I held her there. Obviously, this only worked sometimes and was difficult to do if I had my 3 year old with me outside in the snow at cold temperatures.

    I have to say that, for some reason, there is a general societal consensus that shock collars are bad. I subscribed to that until I adopted my Flat Coated Retriever. I had successfully trained an Australian Shepherd and thought getting a rescue dog would be the same amount of ease to train. I was wrong. My rescue dog was a 3 years old retriever with an unknown history and didn’t have one ounce of shepherd tendencies. She is a hunting dog and likes to chase EVERYTHING that moves. After reading an article online written by Lou Castle, who is a police dog trainer, my mind was changed. I highly recommend his website to anyone wanting a well trained dog using “ecollars”. []. Needless to say, I got this shock collar and it changed my dog in 1 day! The first day I used it to stop a chase into the road and to stop the aggression with the neighbor dogs. I also learned that my dog had already been “etrained”. Once I used the shock collar, she was a velcro dog, continually heeling at my side. It was magnificent.

    Finally, for anyone wanting to buy a shock collar for their dog. There is definitely a right and a wrong way to use a shock collar. Please do your research before you decide to correct behavior. You have to give an alternate command when you shock so your dog knows what is expected instead of the bad behavior. When my dog starts chasing, and is given a light shock (we only need to use the sound now without the shock) we would say “come” at the same time so she would know what to do to make the sound/shock stop. Once she takes 4-5 steps toward me, the sound/shocks stop and she is praised when she gets to me with a pat on the head and a few “good girls.”

    We got a young female hound mix from the ASPCA, and couldn’t keep her in the yard. You know hounds: nose down and they’re off. A neighbor suggested a radio collar.

    We bought this one. I didn’t go through the training regimen. She was too timid to work with. All we did was walk her around the yard on a leash some, giving the negative tone and negative voice tones when she tried to leave the boundary. Within two weeks, I started using a long lead and giving a low setting shock along with the negative voice. Within a month, she ran free with the collar and no lead.

    It has been 8 months since we started with this product. We shocked her maybe 10 times TOTAL on setting 4. For the past 6, she hasn’t left our property. We put the collar on every time she is out and not tied up. She rarely even tests the boundary, but a negative voice is enough to break her from a scent, another dog, or a person and have her head back to the middle of the yard with her tail tucked. She walks right along the unfenced boundary but doesn’t cross. I’ve even taken her to a public park and she listens to the tone and negative commands. She comes when called.

    Great product. Use the collar right; making sure it is snug and the electrodes are on the skin, so a low dose is felt. Use TLC with the dog. There should be no need to shock many times.
