Features

  • Has three training modes – stimulation, vibration and tone
  • Has 99 levels of static stimulation – and you can adjust between the levels
  • Has 330 yards of range from the transmitter to the collar receiver
  • Has a safety keypad lock feature that allows you to lock the remote control buttons. This is good for if you put the remote in your pocket for example and don’t want the collar device accidentally triggering
  • System also automatically shuts off after 20 minutes of not being used
  • Can support up to 9 dogs on the one remote transmitter
  • System is designed for dogs between 15 to 100lbs in weight
  • Remote has up to 45 days battery standby time
  • Receiver has up to 15 days standby time
  • Batteries can be charged via a USB charging port
  • Receiver is waterproof
  • Customer service, as of right now, seems to be reasonably good

 

Potential Drawbacks

  • The remote is slightly larger than some would like, and could probably be designed slightly more ergonomically
  • The collar receiver isn’t designed for small to toy sized dogs smaller than 15lbs. It could also be designed to be slightly more compact
  • DOG CARE isn’t as much of an established brand right now compared to brands like Educator, SportDOG, Dogtra, and so on. This isn’t necessarily bad, but, is something to monitor over the long term.

Safety Considerations With A Remote Dog Training Collar

Safety is extremely important with a remote dog training collar.

Always always get your vet’s advice or the advice of an animal health and/or training expert – nothing is a substitute for professional advice.

Some general safety guidelines for using an e collar humanely might be:

Buy from a reputable company who put proper use of the e collar and the safety of the dog as a priority 

Read and follow the operating guide, instruction/safety manual and training guide that comes with the e collar system from the manufacturer for operation and safety instructions and guidelines

Pay attention to any warnings issued by the manufacturer

Monitor your dog’s response both mentally and physically to using an e collar. Take the collar off immediately and discontinue use of the system if you notice any negative implications or reactions

 

A good remote dog training collar that uses static stimulation should simply stimulate the muscle (to the point of reflex) to get the dog’s attention, but should not cause pain (it might be slightly annoying for the dog to act as a small deterrent – but shouldn’t cause pain or harm). It certainly shouldn’t cause a ‘sharp pain’ to the muscle or body. 

To get a safe stimulation level – you can always start from the lowest stimulation level, and work your way up to a level that gets the dog’s attention (such as changing body language when a stimulation, vibration or tone is administered) without any visible sign of pain or harm (such as yelping, or showing signs of stress).

A good e collar company should give you all the necessary safety, use and training instructions, and should have a dedicated customer service line to help when you being using the collar system.

The static stimulation function does not need to be used either – tone and vibrate training modes can be used instead.

Some owners like to even use their e collar as a temporary training tool, and may go back to using body or verbal commands once behaviors are reinforced (if suitable).
