Use the PetSafe® Yard & Park Rechargeable Remote Trainer in the backyard or at the park
Transmitter rests comfortably in hand for ease in controlling your dog
Dog training collar has 8 static levels and praise and warning correction
The PetSafe® Yard & Park Rechargeable Remote Trainer is an exceptional, yet affordable, dog training device. Features 4-1/2 oz receiver collar, ideal for use in the backyard or at the park, up to a 400-yard range. Your dog will train easily with 8 static levels and praise warning options. For dogs 8 lbs and over. Lifetime limited manufacturer's warranty. System can be used with up to 3 dogs if Add-A-Dog® Collars, sold separately, are purchased.
System includes: Remote waterproof transmitter, rechargeable waterproof receiver with adjustable waterproof collar for necks 8" - 24", rechargeable NiMH batteries for transmitter and receiver, AC wall outlet charger, and operating guide.
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.
Key Definitions Handheld Transmitter: Transmits the radio signal to the Receiver Collar. It is waterproof. Transmitter Indicator Light: Indicates that a button is pressed and also serves as a low-battery indicator. Intensity Dial: Provides multiple levels of Stimulation so you can match the correction to your pet's temperament. Upper Button: This button is factory-set to deliver a Negative Tone only. Lower Button: This button is factory-set to deliver a Negative Tone for 1 second then Continuous Stimulation set by the Intensity Dial.
Side Button: This button is factory-set to deliver a Positive Tone only. Receiver Collar: Receives the radio signal from the Handheld Transmitter. It is waterproof. On/Off Button: Momentarily pressing and holding this button turns the Receiver Collar on and off. Contact Points: The contacts through which the Receiver Collar delivers Stimulation. Receiver Indicator Light: Indicates when the Receiver Collar has been turned on or off and also serves
as a low-battery indicator.
Charging Jacks: For connecting the charger. Although the Handheld Transmitter and Receiver Collar are waterproof without the charger covers, keep the covers in place when not charging to keep debris out of the openings. Continuous Stimulation: You control when and how long Stimulation is delivered to your dog through the Receiver Collar's Contact Points. When a Continuous Stimulation button is pressed for 8 seconds or more, the Handheld Transmitter will "time-out." The button will need to be released and pressed again before additional Stimulation can be delivered. Negative Tone: Use a Negative Tone with a Stimulation to stop unwanted behaviors. Timing is critical. The Negative Tone followed by the Stimulation should occur during or immediately after the unwanted behavior. Once your dog associates the Negative Tone with the Stimulation, you will only need to use the Negative Tone. Positive Tone: Use the Positive Tone as a marker to reinforce positive behavior. Again, timing is critical. Praise or treat the dog immediately following the Positive Tone.

To Turn the Receiver Collar On:
Press and hold the On/Off Button until the Receiver Indicator Light comes on and the Receiver Collar beeps 5 times.
Release the On/Off Button. The Receiver Indicator Light will flash until the Receiver Collar is turned off. The flashing light indicates the Receiver Collar is ready to receive a radio signal from the Handheld Transmitter.
To Turn the Receiver Collar Off:
Press and hold the On/Off Button until the Receiver Indicator Light comes on and the Receiver Collar beeps 2 times.
Release the On/Off Button. To extend the life between charging cycles, turn the Receiver Collar off when it is not in use. Approximate battery life between charges is 15-20 hours, depending on frequency of use.
The rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries are not memory sensitive and do not require depletion before charging.
The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge (24 hours) before the first use.
Remember - Always keep batteries away from flame.
When storing the unit for long periods of time, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge (12 hours). This should be done once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Excessive overcharging can shorten battery life. After initial charge, never leave the battery plugged in for more than 12 hours.
If your equipment has not been charged for an extended period, you may experience a decrease in battery life the first few uses. Afterwards, the battery life will return to previous capacity levels.
You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose capacity over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience. This is normal. If your operating time drops to half of the original life, contact the PetSafe Customer Care Center to purchase a new battery.
The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years. When a battery needs replacement, you can order a new pack by contacting the PetSafe Customer Care Center or visit their website at www.petsafe.net. Please do not open the Receiver Collar or Handheld Transmitter until you have received the replacement.
Fit the Collar Receiver 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:
Make sure that the Receiver Collar is turned off.
Start with your dog standing comfortably.
Place the Receiver Collar high on your dog's neck close to the ears. Center the Contact Points underneath your dog's neck, touching the skin. Note: It is sometimes necessary to trim the hair around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is consistent.
Check the tightness of the Receiver Collar by inserting one finger between the collar and your dog's neck. The fit should be snug but not constricting.
Allow your dog to wear the Receiver Collar for several minutes, then recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable with the Receiver Collar.
Care and Cleaning
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:
The Receiver Collar should not be worn for more than 8 hours out of every 24-hour period.
Your dog's neck and the Contact Points must be washed weekly with a washcloth and mild hand soap, then rinsed thoroughly.
Be sure that your pet's neck is thoroughly dry before placing the Receiver Collar back on his neck.
Program the Handheld Transmitter 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:
Adjust the Intensity Dial to the Mode you want to use.
Turn the Handheld Transmitter over.
With a pen or paperclip, depress and release the Mode button. When the Mode button is pressed, the Transmitter Indicator Light will be solid in color.
When it is released, it will flash the Mode selected. For example, if Mode 2 is desired, adjust the Intensity Dial to Level 2. Once the Mode button has been depressed, the Transmitter Indicator Light will be solid, and once the Mode button is released, the Transmitter Indicator Light will flash two times.
Note: Continuous Stimulation will transmit for no more than eight continuous seconds no matter
how long the button is pressed. To reactivate, release and repress the button.
Reset the Receiver Collar
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:

Training Guide General Tips
Eliminate one misbehavior or teach one obedience command at a time. If you move too fast with training, your pet may become confused.
Be consistent. Correct your pet every time he misbehaves.
Unless you can supervise him, it is recommended that you restrict your pet from situations in which he has a history of misbehaving. However, setting up a situation as a training session can dramatically improve your chances of success.
If your pet reacts to the tones by hiding or acting fearful, redirect his attention to a simple and appropriate behavior, such as the "sit" command.
Pets should be at least 6 months old before using the Trainer.
Only let responsible family members use the Trainer. It is not a toy!
Other pets in hearing range will be affected by the training tones. Therefore, training sessions should be conducted out of hearing range of other pets.
Never use the Remote Trainer to correct or eliminate any form of aggressive behavior. We recommend you contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer to determine if your pet might be aggressive.
Training instructions in the operations guide are written for use with the Transmitter being programmed to Mode 1. Adjust the instructions to fit your desired training mode.
Teaching Your Pet the Positive Tone
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:
Push the Positive Tone button for 2 consecutive seconds.
Release the button and immediately reward your pet with verbal praise, petting, or a small food reward. Spend 3 to 5 seconds on your rewarding.
Wait a few minutes and repeat holding the Positive Tone button for 2 seconds following with praise. Vary the reward to prevent your pet from anticipating a specific type. This stage of training is complete when your pet obviously anticipates a reward when he hears the positive tone.
Using the Negative Tone
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.
Hold the Negative Tone button for up to 2 seconds at a time, releasing the button as soon as your pet stops the misbehavior.
If your pet has not stopped the misbehavior after two seconds of correction, release the Negative Tone button, then press it again for up to two consecutive seconds.
Continue this sequence until the misbehavior has stopped.
Once the misbehavior has stopped, count out two seconds and then push the Positive Tone button for two consecutive seconds.
Reward your pet following pushing the Positive Tone button approximately once every 3 to 5 times, to help your pet maintain the association of the positive tone with reward.
Find the Best Stimulation Level for Your Pet 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. Follow the steps below to find your pet's Recognition Level:
Starting at Level 1 on the Intensity Dial, press the Stimulation Button continuously for 1 to 2 seconds.
If your pet shows no reaction, repeat the Stimulation level several times before moving up to the next level.
YOUR PET SHOULD NOT VOCALIZE OR PANIC WHEN RECEIVING STIMULATION. IF THIS HAPPENS, THE STIMULATION LEVEL IS TOO HIGH AND YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS LEVEL AND REPEAT THE PROCESS.
Move up through the Stimulation levels until your pet reliably responds to the Stimulation.
If your pet continues to show no response at Level 8, check the fit of the Receiver Collar. If your pet has long or thick hair, replace the Contact Points with the longer set. Then go back to #1 and repeat the process. If this still does not yield any results, your pet's hair will need to be trimmed around the Contact Points. If all of these steps have been done and your pet continues to show no reaction to the Stimulation, see the "Test Light Instructions" section. If after completing all of these steps your dog still does not indicate he is feeling the Stimulation, please contact Customer Care Center or visit the PetSafe website at www.petsafe.net.
Remote collars are one of the most effective training tools for professional trainers and individual pet owners alike. They offer many benefits when you can't always be near your pet to correct bad behavior at a distance.
