Description

BLUEFANG Dog Trainer

The new, improved Bluefang dog training app makes training your dog quick and easy. It turns your phone into a hand-held training device and can be used with or without our Bluefang Bluetooth dog training collar.

DOG BMI CALCULATOR: Enter your dog’s breed, gender, height and weight. The app instantly calculates your dog’s BMI showing its current fitness level verses ideal.

WITH THE COLLAR: The app remotely operates the Bluefang dog training collar, via Bluetooth, with a range of up to 400 feet, to provide REMOTE TRAINING, BARK CONTROL and ACTIVITY TRACKING. Some Bluefang collar models work with High Tech Pet’s electronic fence systems, electronic dog doors and other dog controlled accessories. Linking is wireless and quick.

REMOTE TRAINING: The app remotely activates any of 6 audible training tones generated by the collar, each associated with a specific, user defined, command. It also activates a clicker device in the collar used to positively enforce desired dog behavior. You may also activate the collar’s vibration generator and static stimulus generator used to deter unwanted or dangerous behavior. The intensity and duration of the static stimulus may be individually controlled and adjusted to your dog’s unique temperament. The app controls an unlimited number of collars. Each collar may be given a unique stimulus profile specific to the individual dog wearing the collar.

BARK CONTROL: The Bluefang Collar has built in bark control that may be activated and tailored to your dog via the app. Choose from 3 training modes. Normal mode stops all barking. Anti-Intruder mode stops nuisance barking but allows the more excited type of barking your dog exhibits when barking at an intruder or emergency. Anti-Howl mode stops barking and howling.

ACTIVITY MONITOR: Track your dog’s motion throughout the day and view the minutes spent and calories burned at each of 5 activity levels. Data may be displayed by day, week, month or year and is stored for view when not linked to the collar.

ELECTRONIC FENCE: Some Bluefang collar models have a built-in electronic fence receiver to work with any High Tech Pet electronic fence transmitter. The transmitter sends a radio signal through a boundary wire you bury around your yard to administer static stimulus if your dog attempts to cross the boundary. This feature also works with High Tech Pet’s SUPER SCRAM mat that causes the collar to emit stimulus whenever the dog steps on the mat keeping your dog off furniture, away from trash cans and other “off limits” areas. Electronic fence may be remotely toggled on and off with the app.

ELECTRONIC PET DOOR: Some Bluefang models have a built-in ultrasonic transmitter that operates High Tech Pet’s motorized Power Pet door that automatically opens on your dog’s approach. Also operates the High Tech Pet Sound Barrier and Yard Barrier portable sonic fences. The app lets you remotely toggle this feature on and off.

The app controls an unlimited number of collars and lets you create a unique profile for each, including dog name, commands, stimulus level and bark control settings. Includes in-app help screens.

So hard

App is so hard to use. So hard to have the buttons work when you hit them. So hard to set up. So hard to share information ( in fact haven figured that out yet) It truly is a painful experience, using this app.

User interface is pathetic

Given the high price of the devices that require this app for configuration & control, you would think that they would put a little thought into the design and functionality of the app. I can’t begin to tell you the number of times that I have attempted to make a simple adjustment to the settings for one of my dogs, only to find that a duplicate configuration file has been created. Trying to determine which is the revised version (without creating, yet another duplicate) so that I can delete the old one, can be a serious pain.

More annoying is the fact that years after the introduction of the iPhone notch, with the system shifting significant items to the upper left and right corners of the screen, this app has not been revised to move the squared-hamburger menu selection button down, below this space. I regularly use the app to check the battery level of the bluefang collars on my three dogs. It is extremely difficult to open the menu and switch between dogs, without accidentally selecting the back/previous-app system option that occupies about half of the same space as the menu button.

Frankly, I’m amazed that Apple hasn’t pulled this app from the store for violating user interface design standards / requirements.

Developer Response ,

Hello,

It sounds like something is wrong with the hardware of one of your collars. Can you please contact us at info@hightechpet.com and mention this review? Our support team can help you get this sorted out.

As for the audio, currently that is due to our app playing the training sounds and containing the training videos. We will take this into consideration for future updates.

I will pass your feedback on to our software engineer.

Can’t Stand It

I use the collars on my 2 dogs and we also got the automatic door. The door works fine but everything is connected to their app which is horrendous. The company needs to spend time updating the app to justify their high costs. The collar batteries die quickly and the app updates almost every time I turn it on which takes about 15 minutes during which time you cannot access the app at all. The app also doubles my dogs profiles, naming them “Bluefang” each time. When I delete the new profile, it deletes the original one too. I’ve been struggling with this nonsense for 6 months and it has not been resolved yet. The collar does not really auto correct barking so don’t expect it to. I will never buy their products again. They are not worth the cost.
