It’s got great potential
So first of all, I do really love this collar/ app combo. I used so many different collars before and always lost the remote so this idea is reeeeally useful! The only thing that needs serious improvement is that the collar should be connected at all times. It takes away all convenience to open the app, watch it try to connect and then fail. Then repeatedly fail until I quit and re open the app. There needs to be a better way to pair the Bluetooth so that when you close the app, the collar STAYS connected and is then always connected. That way you don’t waste time opening the app and watching it p*** you off all day not connecting
I have a German Shepherd/Husky mix so he’s extremely active and vocal. Which is fine but my husband and I are expecting our first child and our dog excessively barks for hours at a time. We go down the list of things he may need: food, water, go outside, play with him, take him for a hike/run sit through training sessions. He’s a good dog over all but the constant barking has got to stop before the baby gets here so we turned to this collar. I like the luxury of choosing when it’s okay to bark and when it’s not okay. The first day he already started following rules a little more. We use the tone as a reward and the vibrate as a warning. Very rarely do we need to use the shock setting. Before the collar our dog was cuddly, sweet, funny, with just the downfall of never shutting up. Now he’s all of those things and quiet!! I recommend this item for people who need to train their hard to train pups. With the husky aspect he’s going to be mischievous and vocal but at least we know the baby won’t be woken up randomly!!
Best collar that I’ve tried so far
I’ve tried a barking collar that didn’t have a remote and my dachshund figured out exactly what pitch he could bark at for it to not detect it, so I ditched that collar for this one. I do have to have the app open in the background at all times when I’m home and it takes about 3 seconds to load real quick, so if he barks one time; my response isn’t quick enough to correct it, but it works great when he’s having a barking fit, which is pretty constant with him. I put the shock at 5 because he responds better to that one. I’m also using the vibration to train him not to walk out the door when it’s open, which is actually working so far. I’ve only had the collar for barely 24 hours and I’m already seeing progress in my hard to train, unruly dog.
I do wish that this app was compatible with apple watches because it would be a lot easier to access at all times.
