Remote Combo Spray Trainer System
This is the Best
My dog when outside would pay no attention to me...birds and Geicos was all she had on her mind.....she would get away and chase them and we couldn't get her...I put this on her..she started to take off after one I said no sprayed and she stopped immediately...three times...after that all I have to do is say no or stay and she will just sit there and watch them....it is amazing...she sat for five minutes just watching a geico and she was within 3 foot of it...I love this thing.....I am recommending it to everyone....my sister is ordering one as soon as she gets home from Florida.....if you get one for barking you wouldn't need the remote control one but just the one activated by the bark......I love love love this and the best part is it does not hurt them.....

My dogs have had spray collars before so they didn't need the spray the sound was enough...easy to set up (especially if you read the directions first!). Now just having them wear the collar keeps their barking down)

After using this product for several weeks, my dog, 2 year old Golden, has been able to check his behavior with only the beep warning. He used to get into a frenzy barking at passing dogs. I only used the spray twice after giving him the beep warning. Now he either wags his tail when people and dogs pass our fence, gives a small "woof" (both of these w/o the beep warning), or if he barks, I give the warning beep and he stops. After solving this one problem, I now use the beep if he pulls leash on a walk, or other unwanted behavior. All it takes is the warning beep and he checks his behavior. No more yelling. Very peaceful. I don't, however, use the positive tone on the side of this device. I give verbal praise.

To give fair warning, I have quite a bit to say about this product, so this will be a long review. I've been using the collar for only 2 days now and I'm pleased to say that my 17 month bulldog/border collie mix is already like a new (and very improved) dog!!! My little girl is incredibly sweet, but also crazy energetic, smart, extremely excitable (squirrel?!?!), and has the willpower of a mule. Initially I was skeptical about the product, but I didn't want to go for the shock collar, as I feel it is less humane. My dog didn't respond to being sprayed with a water bottle (she thought that was just a fun game!), so I was concerned that this collar might not work for her, however, it's working absolute wonders!! We have worked with her on training for months now, and she understands what she needs to do most of the time, however, if she is too excited, she just doesn't listen to my commands. She learned almost immediately that the beep on this collar means a spray will follow if she doesn't listen, and I've found that a beep is usually all it takes to get her attention. Our first walking experience started off a little rough and when I beeped her for pulling on her leash, she would try to run. It took her a little time to understand that if she didn't pull she was rewarded with praise and treats and not beeped or sprayed. Our second walk, today, was like a dream. She understood, and she heeled perfectly by my side for the entire hour long walk!! It was fantastic! We had tried every harness, head halter, and collar out there for walking. Now we finally have our answer! We are also using the collar to train her to stop jumping on furniture, and people, and stop raising a ruckus in the back yard. Last night we had guests over and as soon as she jumped, I beeped her, and she instantly stopped. I can't tell you what a huge relief it is that I can now easily stop her from jumping on people when they walk in the door. Before we tried everything, if you tried blocking her jump with your knee, she just thought it was all part of the fun and it was time to wrestle. Now when she hears the beep, she understands, it's time to behave!! This is an incredible product, and if you have a stubborn dog, but don't want to use a shock collar, give this a try. It will do wonders for you and your dog.
Also just a couple of tips - timing is key - you must beep right at the moment of bad behavior so your dog understands what they are doing wrong. If they don't respond to the beep, follow with a spray. Additionally, I use my voice and give a stern, "Ahhhh" sound just before beeping. I'm finding that my dog is now taking the sound of my voice more seriously, as she knows what comes next, if she doesn't. This is very helpful for training, as you may not always have the remote in your hand at the moment you may need it. I find that she doesn't seem to like the "positive" beep sound either, so rather than trying to train her to understand that it's a "good" sound, vs the "bad" beep, I just use my voice to praise her and give her treats when she is being good, and don't use the "positive" beep function at all.
My only reservation about this product is that I have concerns that she may get used to it, and stop responding this well. I will post another update later if that happens. For now, I am thrilled with it. Thanks for a fantastic training tool!!!
