Why use a remote trainer instead of other training methods?
Pet owners want the insurance that their dog will follow them off leash. We all want to give our dogs more freedom, and remote trainers are gentle, safe, low-stress tools for training your dog.
Is the remote trainer harmful or painful?
No. People have been conditioned since childhood to be afraid of electricity. When you feel one of these collars, it's laughable how mild it is, but it is startling. Just like a muscle stimulator, the feeling is unique but not painful.
If we turn them up to the highest setting, it is startling, but most dogs don't need a high level to respond. It's just a unique sensation that gets the dog's attention.
