PetSafe Collarless Ultrasonic Trainer
Training is a breeze
This is the perfect answer for a harmless, yet effective training device for your adorable little ones. We have three Shih Tzus...ages 11,8 and 7 and they say old dogs can't learn new tricks. Well, I am here to tell you that they can. They had recently learned to bark too much for no reason from new neighbor's herd of dogs who barked almost constantly! We also purchased a UltraSonic Birdhouse Unit at the same time to help battle that issue and it is working wonderfully. Between the outside unit and the handheld unit, our babies are learning that barking for no reason is not a pleasant thing. They are allowed to bark during their play, which is a totally different matter. But to jump and run for the door when we are sitting there is a Romper Room No-No! Thank you, PetSafe, because shock collars were never a consideration in our house.

this product really works
I have a correction stimuli collar for her and when I put it on her she immediately stops doing all the naughty things. I never have the chance to correct her. This shock collar is big and she's only a little shih tzu so I don't want to leave it on all the time.
But with this ultrasonic trainer I can spontaneously give her corrections and she stops. The only problem is the other dogs will also get the message. But one is deaf and the other doesn't seem to mind.

This product has been my answer to annoying barking!
I recently adopted a box terrior/pug mix, with a very shrill, yippy bark. I also have an older dog that is beagle mix. since my Bugg arrived she not only barks, but now my beagle mix has been joining in the singing!!! I only have to push the negative button for approx 1/2 second & they both stop dead in their tracks. I have read the training book, (which it states to read in entirety before using the product.) I follow the negative sound with a command & they listen. Now I am not having to use the product as much, all I have to do is state my command firmly to them & they both listen. I use the product now only when they really get crazy playing. I would recommend this product to anyone.

We got the desired result in just several uses of the trainer.
We have an 8-month-old Border Collie/Choc. Lab mix. Zeke's one remaining training issue was his "let's play" behavior of running around me in a circle, barking at me, and slowly tightening the circle and nipping at my feet and hands. He wouldn't respond to any commands or treats while in this state, which would happen at least once a day, when we would go outside. We got the trainer to help with this one major problem. It has 2 buttons; positive for reinforcement and negative for deterrent. We tried the positive button first and that's all it took! He immediately stopped and came to me calmly. We used the word "quit" with it. Two more times and he hasn't gotten into that crazy mood since. We have used the negative button twice; once when he caught a baby bunny and once when he caught a bird. He immediately dropped them and backed away. I carry the trainer with me when we're outside but the word "quit" is all it takes. He's almost like a whole different puppy. A bit calmer and using his brain more. For us, this is a great tool
