The PetSafe PDT00-12470 Yard & Park Remote Dog Trainer, is an electronic collar intended to help get rid of your dog’s bad behaviour. This collar features 8 levels of stimulation which so you can determine what level of stimulation your dog needs. The collar is effective up to about 400 yards. The collar includes a positive and negative tone button, so if you’re dog did something extremely bad that you want to make sure it never does again, you can use the negative tone button. If you want to reward the dog you use the positive tone button. The collar is rechargeable, not having to buy replacement batteries helps make this collar more of an economical option over other dog shock collars. The collar is fully waterproof as is the receiver. The collar comes with a step by step training manual that contains information about the collar and some training methods an owner can use in combination with dog shock collars. It is important to note that the collar should not be used on dog’s weighing less than 8 pounds.
This product was great, I used it on my dog (a three year old Golden Retriever) who refused to stay near me when walking and who would often run off. Using the lower settings on this collar was effective enough to stop her from constantly running off and as a result my walks with her are more enjoyable. However, this collar does have an issue with power. The collar begins to lose some (not all) of its power after a usage for a long period of time, My first collar after about 8 months is much weaker than when I first bought it. That being said the collar is still effective for a good deal of time and given that you don’t need to buy replacement batteries, the collar is a good option if you don’t want to break the bank. Overall the collar has flaws, but it is still a very good option. PetSafe Yard & Park Remote Dog Trainer PDT00-12470
