Sometimes your pet dog needs a little help overcoming a behavior that can be dangerous, such as rushing out onto a busy street, or annoying, such as jumping up on visitors. Consistent training can help your dog stop bad habits and learn new behaviors, and this training can be enhanced by static correction.

I had never thought I would see the day when we could communicate with our pets on our phones. But the PetSafe® SMART DOG® Remote Trainer makes that very thing possible. It allows you to use your iPhone® or Android® as a remote to control tone, vibration, or static stimulations on a sleek, navy blue collar that your dog wears.

January is National Train Your Dog Month, but don't forget about training cats. We expect our dogs to know basic manners, and rarely feel surprise if King offers a "sit" on command, or a paws-up to "shake" when asked. But folks guffaw at the mere mention of cat training.
Intuitively, we all know that our dogs are like no others. They react hilariously to the most benign and everyday of sounds, or they sleep on their backs trying to copy the humans they watch daily. But it's not uncommon to totally forget how unique our dogs are when it comes time to do some training. Get to know your dog's personality and you'll have the keys to effective training sessions.
