PetSafe Yard Remote Dog Trainer Review

Petsafe dog trainer review
Written by Mark Braeden

Your adorable dog is turning into monster pet these days. Barking nonstop even at night, jumping over the fences, does not obey your commands, biting things and other unpleasant behaviors can become worst if left untrained. Teach your dog and bring back the lovable traits on your pet with tough love. How? The easiest way to train without causing harm to your dog is to have an electric training collar. E-collar dog training is proven safe and humane for pets and this way of training is so much better than just hitting or starving your pet that may later cause injuries or death.

PetSafe lite dog E-collar that are gentle for timid dogs

You can have your training in any place even on the swimming pool, beach or riverside since both the waterproof dog training collars and waterproof remote are dust-proof and durable. There’s a safety lock feature with levels 8 to 15. The electric dog collar has 3 modes: Vibration, Static simulation and Tone. With a press on one of the button modes, your dog will now get your attention and obey your commands.  Whether you are training a poodle or a Labrador, you can gradually adjust the Static stimulation levels from 1 to 15.

Is your dog sensitive or timid? PetSafe Lite compared to the regular one has gentler stimulation levels even when you increase it.

Dog training collar that can fit on any dog size

Both the remote and the electric dog collar itself are rechargeable. The electric dog collar is adjustable so it can fit on dog neck size up to 28 inches. The remote can even control 2 dog shock collars at the same time when you purchase an additional dog training shock collar, either the Pet-Safe Add-A-Dog receiver dog training shock collar PAC00-16163 or Pet-Safe Add-A-Dog receiver lite dog training shock collar PAC00-16164.

Different electric dog collar ranges

Depending on your training location, you can choose a dog shock collar with remote that has 100 yard, 300 yard, 600 yard or 900 yard range. If you will just train on your backyard, choose a 100 yard range. When the location has tall trees and buildings, you can use the 600 or 900 yard range. If you will walk, run or swim with your dog, 900 yard range is the best. Since we have different needs, here is the list of yard range types and the difference.

100 yard range:

  • Collar strap is made of nylon
  • No backlit remote display
  • USB cable

300, 600 and 900 yard range:

  • Premium collar strap
  • Have backlit remote display
  • Wall adapter instead of only USB cable

Buying from authorized retailers will ensure you that the PetSafe dog shock collar with remote is original and has a manufacturer’s warranty. There’s no warranty if you decide to buy from unauthorized sellers. If you have problems using this dog product, the reliable and convenient PetSafe customer care is available for your call, email or chat six days a week. PetSafe is a reputable dog training brand that is why their electric training collar is made in high quality and can last in a long period.
