"I couldn't be happier with my purchase."

By: Erik Peirson From NC

Family pet.

First time E-Collar owner, and this was the only site that truly made me feel like I was making an informed decision and not just selling a product. This product was a good bit out of my price range, but after researching the alternatives it was the clear choice. My GSD pup is a great dog and listens well when the excitement level isn't too high. I did basic obedience training with a prong collar, but no amount of humane corrections worked when she gets really worked up. With this collar I can get her attention easily and never have to go over level 3. Having tried these levels on myself, I believe this is much more humane than jerking a chain to the point of whiplash and more effective. The selling points on this system for me was the completely sealed collar with no rubber boot, the no look operation, and the range. The only things on my wishlist would be to have simultaneous bark and training modes like some other collars, and have the remote be a bit smaller. Lastly, the documentation that comes with the unit is lacking and not very intuitive. By no means a deal breaker, but it would be nice to have some more verbose explanation of functions. Thank you for the great resources and products you provide here. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Product Rating: 5 out of 5-stars.
