It can be very concerning to find a lost pet, and most of us want to find the owner as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, at this time, there is not a way to match the collar with the owner. Contact your local animal control to understand what services are available in your area to help locate the owner.Close
The Test Light Tool is used to tell if your collar is working properly. Hold the tool against the contact points and activate the collar. The tool will light up if the collar is activating. For a remote trainer, activate the correction using the transmitter. For a fence, move the collar near the boundary, holding the collar at your dog's neck height. For a bark collar, activate it by rubbing the contact points against a rough surface.Close

Yes, the receiver can be place on any non-metallic strap. However, you must be able and willing to “punch” two holes in your pet's current collar so that the contact points can be properly inserted. Be advised; do not attach a leash to a collar that has a receiver on it. This can cause additional pressure on your pets neck through the contact points in the collar.Close
The proper fit and placement of your receiver collar is important for effective training. The contact points must have direct contact with your pets skin on the underside of their neck.
If your collar is a QuickFit collar, it is designed so you can quickly attach and remove the Receiver Collar from your pet while maintaining the desired fit.
Replacing the Receiver on a New Collar Strap
Never leave the receiver collar on your pet for more than 12 consecutive hours and remove the receiver collar from your pet when indoors for the comfort of your pet.

This can happen if the static correction level is too high. It is best to start on the lowest level of correction and increase the levels gradually. To solve your immediate issue, lower the static correction level and reassure your pet and offer praise.
Make sure you are in control of the situation when your pet receives his/her first static corrections (have him/her on a leash attached to a separate, non-metallic collar) and lead him into the pet area and praise him/her. If your pet remains fearful, suspend training and start again the next day. Make sure to end all training sessions on a positive note with lots of praise and play.Close

All pets are different, so it's important to be patient with yourself and your pet. Some pets may understand the training quickly, and others may take more time. Paying attention to your pet while you are going through the training and having patience will ensure you both enjoy years of freedom and safety.
The goal of phase 1 training is to familiarize your pet with the boundary flags, boundary, tone, and correction. You will introduce your pet to the tone and the static correction and teach your pet where it happens.
Familiarizing Your Pet With the Boundary Flags
Introducing Your Pet to the Static Correction
Training sessions should start at 10-15 minutes, gradually increasing to over an hour. Your pet is ready for this step only when he clearly avoids the entire boundary flag line, regardless of any distractions or temptations. During this step, do not leave your pet unattended.
To train your pet to stay within the pet area even with distractions outside of the pet area.
To give your pet free run of the pet area off the leash.
The Boundary Flags are visual reminders for your pet of where the Boundary Zone is located. The Receiver Collar will activate within 2 to 3 feet of the Boundary Flags. The flags should go just inside the boundary zone along the wire. To locate the wire:
Note: the higher the level of correction of the receiver collar, the brighter the light with flash. If you cannot see the light flash, increase the level of correction of the collar.
No. Electronic fencing is only effective on pets who wear the Receiver Collar. Other animals can still enter your yard.Close
While we recommend your pet be at least 5 or 8 pounds to wear our wireless or in-ground collars, many smaller dogs and even cats can wear collars from other fences. That means you can add your new small dog to your existing system, or you can purchase a wireless fence and collars for each pet.
Our office dogs have personally tested these collars to make sure they will work for your pets.
