Good but old version had better features
January 4, 2020
I had the previous version of this and it works great on my Australian shepherds. However I had to buy a new one when they basically chewed each other’s receivers. I liked the style of the new one as there aren’t “wings” to easily chew on, however the old remote has better features. The biggest one is that the old remote told you the battery life of the receiver - this one doesn’t!! The receiver has a flashing green light that I have to cover with black tape or no one gets any sleep at night because it can light up a room as it blinks. We relied on the remote to know when to recharge the receiver. Also, the prongs on the new receiver are shorter than the old version. My dogs are long hair but not super thick. I rarely use shock and use vibrate if the beep doesn’t work but I’ve tried both with the new receiver and my dog didn’t notice it. I’ll make adjustments until I get it right but unless you have a shorthair it will take work. Great system for the money, I just wish they didn’t give up some features for the sleeker model.
