Family pet. I've used the 1825 remote transmitter for years now, and it has been a great training tool. I have large dogs, and this system has enabled me to give my dogs off-leash walks on nature trails, etc! I've bought several 1825 systems, because I've lent them out to friends and family! I'm a big fan of this remote transmitter, and I'm not using it to train dogs for hunting purposes.
My only reason for training my "family" dogs is for more control, so I can let them run, and I know that they'll come with the tone only, because they know if they don't return a quick correction will occur (I'd rather do a correction than have my dog come back with a face full of porcupine needles).
When I received my first transmitter, I had no idea how to set it up, program, or how to go about using it on my dogs. I've called several times over the years with problems or issues regarding my 1825, and I've always spoken with a person that was able to help me. They were always so patient and would work with me to solve my problem!
THIS SYSTEM HAS BEEN ONE OF MY BEST PURCHASES, IF NOT THE BEST!!!!
Thank you Steve Snell & Gun Dog Supply, Laurie
