WARNING: For VERY LARGE Dogs Only!!
October 7, 2018
I'm very dissatisfied with the Deceptive Advertisement of this product, implying it's for ALL sizes of dogs.
THIS IS ONLY FOR VERY LARGE DOGS. 100+ lbs.
First, this comes with a "One Size, Fits All" collar, which supposedly fits dogs between 15lbs - 100lbs perfectly.
Think about that for just a moment. Go to a pet store and try to find a "One Size, Fits All" collar for that kind of range, dogs from 15lbs to 100lbs. That, in itself, is a joke.
Next, the device itself. It's far thicker and roughly just over half the size of a larger Smart Phone. I haven't weighed it, but... it's weight is substantial.
After purchasing a new collar to try to make The Device work with something other than the Ridiculous collar that comes with it... I tried to make this work.
Once I got The Device on the new collar and on my dog, it was clear after awhile it just wasn't going to work. Functionally speaking, the device works as advertised. It beeps. It vibrates. The static works. But functionally, for smaller or medium sized dogs, it's a failure.
The Device is VERY BULKY and weighs a lot. I tried to keep it so that it would stay on the back of my dog's neck, but gravity pulls this Heavy device down to the front of my dog. Once the Very Large Device is there, it becomes a Torture Device.
My dog can't eat with it on, nor drink. It rests uncomfortably on his throat and my dog just thrashes and thrashes until we take it off. It's a Complete Failure.
This Device is a Neat Idea, but I was honestly surprised at how Large and Bulky it is. It seems to use dated technology in order to achieve the goals it has... I've seen devices that do the same thing that are 1/4th the size and weigh practically nothing.
I believe this Device is GREAT for a LARGE Dog. I would say at least 80lbs-100lbs. I've had dogs of all sizes, and I was very disappointed in this particular product, as it advertised to be suited for a range of sizes of dogs.
Bottom Line: The Devices is Large and Weighs ALOT, and ONLY suitable for a Very Large Dogs, 80lb-100lbs.
If you have a Very Large Dog, I think this would work for you. If you a have smaller / medium dog... it's just to Big, Bulky and Weighty to be effective.
