If you have a dog that is a bit of a handful when you are out walking in a park or in your yard, then the PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar could be the training aid that will solve a lot of your problems. Some dogs just love to run when they are off the leash, chase animals and play with other dogs, but if your dog won’t come when called, then that type of behaviour can begin to become a real problem.
The PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar is designed to help train a dog to respond to commands much better when he is off the leash. The unit consists of a special training collar and a remote control. If the dog runs away or fails to respond to a command, the remote control can be used to trigger a warning tone, or a mild static shock correction if required.
The static correction does not harm the dog, it is little more than the shock you sometimes feel when you touch a car door. It is designed to reinforce the commands that you give your dog and help you teach your pet what is acceptable behaviour and what is not.
Review of the PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar
The PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar is an electronic, remote controlled dog collar that will help you train your dog when he is off the leash in the yard or out in a park. The collar has eight levels of static stimulation, so you can set the level of the correction to suit your own dog’s temperament. The collar is designed for dogs over 8 pounds in weight and for neck sizes up to 28”. Both the collar and the remote control unit are waterproof, so there is no problem using the system in the rain. The collar is also submersible, should your dog decide to take a swim. The batteries in the PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar are rechargeable, which will save you a lot of money on replacement batteries. The transmitter has a range of 400 yards, which is perfect for when a dog runs off and does not want to come back.
Overall, both the collar and the remote control of the PetSafe Yard & Park Training Collar are well made, although the collar could, perhaps, be a bit better. The remote control has a tough rubber coating over it, so it will withstand being dropped, even into the water. The PetSafe Yard & Park Rechargeable Dog Training Collar is a good quality, all-purpose training collar that could be used effectively for on-leash training as well as off-leash training to correct behaviour such as jumping up and excessive barking.
