SportDog SD-350 YardTrainer
Very Good Product
Our Dogs are obedience trained before we got the collatr but there were just some habits we needed to break. They chased and tried to help when we would call a horse to the barn, they go to get that horse, and are proud they can pick the right one,and send it home but the horses do not like the barking and their tales grabbed onto. Being able to give a reminder of first calling the dog giving the command either drop or come and being ignored the collar reminds them that they need to listen to us. I believe these collars should only be used on a dog that is trained in another method first. I find the shock collar is a reminder to obey their commands when they are ignoring the verbal command. This collar is not to be used buy a person that is trying to train a dog that has no foundation. BUT once the foundation is set this is the best reminder training tool available. This product being able to re charge and also water proof because in FL our dogs spend a lot of time in ponds and swamps. We can feel safe bringing them anywhere( forests) with their collar and they can run swim but also not get lost in their happy place we can remind them to listen to us when we give a command. It works fantastic. Again not to train a dog with no foundation. Not to be used by a novice trainer. Product gets 4 stars for operation, waterproof, rechargeable and remote function

What a difference!
I got this trainer to help with all the problem behaviors that I couldn't get Jezebel to drop. I've gotten her to stop digging and it only took a few sessions. She also turned a deaf ear to commands like 'off', 'no', and 'let me have it' but this trainer fixed this problem in a single day. I can also get her to come when called even if she's all the way across the yard. Now I can issue these commands even if she isn't wearing the collar and she obeys. Life is better when your dogs obeys!
I've never had to go above level 3 (out of 8) with this trainer, and usually level 2 will get the job done. Jezebel is a Cane Corso mastiff puppy (stubborn, high pain tolerance) so chances are this will work with your dog too.

This Training collar has a good balance of tone and simulation
I picked this collar based on reviews mainly and the features of the collar like tone and simulation multi levels (8). I have a husky/elkhound mix and she gets into trouble and sometimes needs to be reminded!! Looking forward to spring when I can control digging behavior but so far it seems to work and be effective.
