Rated 1 out of 5 by MRNGW Not for Long Haired Dogs
I am unhappy with this product. I have a long haired Australian Shepard. She has been trained on a fence containment system that uses the same static correction method as this collar. The fence collar uses longer lead prongs so that the collar can reach her neck through her coat and it works like a dream. We bought this product and it had no effect on her until we had her hair groomed very short for the summer heat. The collar was able to reach her neck for about 3-4 days and then was ineffective again. After reaching out to Petsafe, they basically conceded that the collar will not work on long haired dogs and that I need to keep my dogs neck hair shaved or use “Vaseline” to help the prongs reach the neck. To me these are unacceptable work arounds. Please be warned if you have a dog with long hair, the product is ineffective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by V1710 Works great
I have four dogs, one rottweiler,one mastiff, one yorkie and one schnauzer mix who would constantly bark and jump at the fence when people would walk by. We put on the collars and they worked immediately. They no longer bark or jump at the fence. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Aedrie Design flaw
This collar has a great training premise; the increase in static works well to adapt to the intensity of the dog. However, the metal pins that are integral to the collar constantly fall out, leaving your very expensive collar incredibly useless. This design flaw has left us looking for another collar for our German Shepherd that will hopefully stay together long enough to work.
