5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Training Collar, 30 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't holding out much hope when I bought this item, but I was willing to try anything. My cocker spaniel is such a scatterbrain that as soon as he sees another dog 200 yards away, or a cat, or anything else that takes his fancy, he is off! Calling, shouting and running after him have proved useless. This collar has excelled all expectations. I used the beep as a warning if he strayed, and had to use the zapper on him only twice to break his train of thought, calling "Come here!" each time. Turns out he is a fast learner! After only a few days use, if he starts to wander now, I just hit the beeper on his collar and issue the command, and he does a complete turn around and comes back. I reinforce the positive return with one of his favourite treats. So far, I am very pleased with this purchase. It's like having a different dog! :-)

Thanks for this, I find myself in exactly this position with my cocker spaniel and hope this works for me. I ordered the collar on the strength of this review and all the other positive reviews, watch this space!

This is an excellent training collar. I have a really expensive one for two of my dogs but did not want to spend lots of money on a third one. My springer spaniel responded immediately to the beep. when we are out in the woods she returns instantly when I beep her. I am very please with this training collar. A minor point - the red and green on / off light could be brighter.

Do you think this would work to stop a dog jumping up also?

It will work against all unwanted behaviour. If you give the command "NO", and follow it with a warning beep, if he persists, you give the command again, and either vibrate the collar or try a mild zap. It is not terribly painful, and just snaps them out of their behaviour and restores focus. Usually, after one or two mild zaps, either the command or command and beep is enough. Eventually, they respond better to just the command.
One word of warning - this collar is not waterproof! If your dog is liable to wander into creeks, dykes or a stream, don't leave the collar on him. Once wet, it shorts out and is useless!

Hi I have bought one of these collars and it came with no instructions, could someone please help me work out how to set it up and best results etc. There's a clear plastic piece with what looks like fuse wire in it. Where does this piece fit??
