The dog soon gets used to it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PetSafe ST-85 Spray Commander Training Collar (Misc.)
I bought this as a last resort to stop my terrier from eating dead animals & chasing cyclists & joggers.
It worked like a treat for around 4 weeks - one quick spray & my dog would soon be at my heels worried what the spray was. I was delighted!
Unfortunately the dog quickly realised the pre-emptive beep meant that the spray was soon coming & he became fixated on when the spray would happen & he quite liked it.
In the end I had less control than before
Cue my search for some dog training advice...I fortunately found a great dog trainer who gave me some brilliant advice. Concentrate on being as interesting as possible to your dog - use games, treats, distractions & anything you can thing of. Now my dog hardly ever goes searching & when he finds something dead I have a really good chance of him leaving it as he knows what I'm doing is far more interesting.....we're still working on the joggers & cyclists ha ha!
