How the System Works |
The PetSafe Yard & Park Trainer has been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for all pets greater than 8 lbs and at least 6 months old. This system assists you in controlling your pet without a leash in a range up to 400 yards. At the push of a button, the Handheld Transmitter sends a signal, activating the Receiver Collar. Using the Remote Trainer consistently and correctly, many misbehaviors that your pet exhibits can be corrected or any basic obedience commands can be taught.
Important: The Yard & Park Trainer has a range of up to 400 yards. Depending on the way you hold the Handheld Transmitter, the maximum range may vary. For consistent results at longer ranges, hold the Handheld Transmitter in a vertical position away from your body and above your head. Terrain, weather, vegetation, transmission from other radio devices, and other factors will affect the maximum range.
Prepare the Handheld Transmitter
Prepare the Receiver Collar
To Turn the Receiver Collar Off:
Important: The proper fit and placement of your Receiver Collar is important for effective operation. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog's skin on the underside of his neck.
To ensure a proper fit, follow these steps:
To ensure the effectiveness of this product and the comfort and safety of your dog, check the fit of his collar frequently. This Guide describes proper collar fitting. If you notice that your dog is experiencing skin irritation, discontinue use of the collar for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
To prevent skin irritation from occurring:
Note: The Handheld Transmitter is factory set to Mode 1. The Mode of the Handheld Transmitter can be changed to fit your type or style of training.
To change the Mode:
To reset the Receiver Collar to work with a new Handheld Transmitter or to reprogram a new Receiver Collar to work with your existing Handheld Transmitter:
With the Transmitter set to Mode 6, 7 or 8, PetSafe® Receiver Collars can be set to respond to the upper, lower, or side Handheld Transmitter buttons. Add-A-Dog™ receiver(s) must be purchased to train additional dogs.
Before using the Trainer to correct your pet, spend 10 to 15 minutes per day for 2 or 3 days helping him create the association of the positive tone with reward and praise. To accomplish this:
As soon as your pet begins the earliest sign of misbehavior, press the Negative Tone button. For example, if you want to teach your dog to stay off the couch, press the Negative Tone button as soon as he puts one paw on it. Do not wait until he is completely on the couch.
Important: Always start at the lowest level and work your way up.
The Remote Trainer has 8 different Stimulation Levels. This allows you to choose the Stimulation that is best for your pet.
Once you have placed the Receiver Collar on your pet, it is time to find the Stimulation Level that is best for him. This is called the Recognition Level. A slight change in your pet's behavior, such as looking around in curiosity, scratching at his collar, or flicking his ears, indicates the Recognition Level that is best for him.
