"I have only had the collar for a few weeks, but so far it has vastly improved the quality of life of my dog (and myself)!"



By: Carissa Mann From MA

Family pet.


I have only had the collar for a few weeks, but so far it has vastly improved the quality of life of my dog (and myself)! We are avid hikers/climbers and are outside every weekend. After five or six weekends of having our dog run away during our hikes, we decided it was safer to not allow our dog to be off leash. This was not ideal for us or her (she is young, has lots of energy and is very independent). We've participated in training classes with three separate dog trainers to try to curb her habit of running away...all of the trainers overwhelmingly recommended trying an electric collar due to her extreme prey drive. I was wary at first, but after a few weeks of use, I think the collar is great. She has a much higher quality of life. We received training on how to use the collar through a local dog trainer and we practiced the technique before putting it to use. Now our dog can explore on her own during our hikes. Her recall is close to 100%, even when she is focused on prey. I really like this specific collar for numerous reasons. The remote is very user friendly. The dial to adjust the intensity is tough to move, which is good, because it will not accidentally shift up to a higher intensity. The collar itself appears comfortable--our dog does not have any problem wearing it for 4-5 hours at a time during longer hikes. She is a 45 pound Australian Kelpie mix and the size is perfect. It's as if it's not on her. I highly recommend this! I also highly recommend purchasing through Gun Dog Supply--after lots of online research, I concluded their price for this collar was competitive with all the other retailers and their level of service was excellent.
