How the System Works
Experience the difference a Petsafe Remote Trainer can do to your life. Now you can spend less time training and more time enjoying your dog. The PetSafe® Remote Trainer is easy to with its advanced digital display so you know exactly what level of stimulation you are using.
Your Remote Trainer will help you control your pet without a leash. It can cover a range of up to 100 yards. One push of a button on your remote sends a signal that activates your dog’s Receiver Collar. The dog will feel a safe but annoying stimulation. Once trained, the dog will learn to associate his behavior and the correction; in no time, you are sure to have a better-behaved pet. The PetSafe® Remote Trainers have been proven safe, comfortable, and effective to use for both small and large dog breeds.
Any basic obedience command can be taught using the Remote Trainer. For as long as it is used consistently and correctly, you are sure to be able to teach your dog any behavioral skill.
Important: The Remote Trainer has a range up to 100 yards during optimum conditions. To achieve optimum range, hold the Remote Transmitter in a horizontal position away from your body. Terrain, weather, vegetation, transmission from other radio devices, and other factors can affect the remote trainer’s range.

Step 3: Fitting the Receiver Collar
Important: For training to be effective, you must always ensure that the collar has proper fit and placement. The Contact Points must always have contact with pet’s skin under his neck.
For proper fitting, please follow these steps:
1. Turn off Receiver collar.
2. Let pet stand comfortably (3A).
3. Place the Receiver Collar on dog’s neck close to the ears. Place the receiver collar at the Center with the Contact Points under the dog’s neck touching the skin. Note: You may need to trim the hair around the Contact Points to make sure that contact is consistent. Long Contact Points are available via Customer Care Center.
CAUTION: Do not shave the pet’s neck as may cause skin irritation. Simply cut the hair.
4. The Receiver Collar should be a snug fit, yet loose enough to allow one finger between the contact points and dog’s neck (3C).
5. Let your pet to wear the collar for a while then recheck the fit. You are looking for the fit when your pet becomes comfortable with the Receiver Collar.
6. Trim the collar as follows (3D):
a. Measure the dog’s neck by putting the collar around it. Once you have determined the length you need for the collar, mark that area with a pen. Give some allowance for growth if your pet is young or grows a thick winter coat.
b. Once you have marked off the area, you can now remove the Receiver Collar from your pet and cut off the excess strap. Important: Do not cut the part of the collar containing the Antenna on the PDT00-13410 Little Dog Remote Trainer.
c. Before placing the Receiver Collar back onto your pet, run the cut edge over a burning candle or over a flame to seal the edges.
There is a risk of skin damage if the collar is not worn properly, if the fit is not right and if the collar is used for prolonged periods. So that the product could be effective, regularly check the fit of your pet’s collar. If you see any skin irritation, discontinue the use of the collar for a few days. If the condition continues beyond 48 hours, have your dog checked by your veterinarian.
You cannot attach a leash on to the Remote Trainer as this may cause pressure on the collar. It can also pull the Contact Points too tightly against pet’s neck. If you should need a leash, you need to use a separate non-metallic collar on your dog’s neck and from that you can attach a leash. You can also use a harness where you can attach the leash and/or tags.
To Re-Thread the Collar
The slide buckle prevents the collar from becoming loose around your pet’s neck.
The ridges must be facing up; the collar will slip if it is not properly threaded.
Step 4: Pairing the Remote Transmitter and Receiver Collar
If the collar is not responding from the buttons on the remote transmitter they you may need to check the pairing of your device. You can check if your Receiver Collar does not beep when the Tone Button of the Remote Transmitter is pressed, or if you feel the Receiver Collar is not responding to the Remote Transmitter, follow these steps to pair:
1. Remove Receiver Collar from pet, once it is already off your pet, turn the Receiver Collar on.
2. Place the transmitter into pairing mode by pressing the down (-) button until the Digital Display shows P.
3. Press the Tone and Stimulation Buttons simultaneously (the orange LED should be lit) until the collar beeps twice. This indicates that acknowledged the Transmitter ID.
4. Change the level to 1 Low by pressing the up (+) button on the transmitter and then press the Tone Button. The Receiver Collar should emit a tone that would verify that it is pairing is completed.
5. If the Receiver Collar does not respond after pairing please contact the Customer Care Center.
● Teach one obedience command or correct misbehavior one at a time. Do not move too fast with training so as not to confuse your pet.
● Be consistent. Correction should be made each time the dog misbehaves. Do not let him do away with misbehavior without correction.
● During training, keep your dog away from situations where he has had a history of misbehaving. However, during supervised training; setting up a situation to test your dog’s behavior can dramatically help in successful training.
● If your pet’s reaction to the correction is either hiding or being very afraid, redirect his attention to a simple and appropriate behavior, such as the “sit” command.
● Pets should atleast be 6mos old to use this trainer.
● Do not allow anybody to use the device especially if they have not been oriented with its functionalities. Also, always keep this device from reach of children. It is not a toy!
● Other pets within hearing range will hear the training tones. Therefore, training sessions should be conducted in a place where only the “trained” pet is around and with other pets outside of hearing range.
WARNING: This remote Trainer is not intended to correct or eliminate any form of aggressive behavior. Contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer to determine if your pet is aggressive. See page 2 for more information.
Teaching the Positive Tone
Before you start using the Trainer to correct your pet, spend 10 to 15 minutes per day to help your dog associate the tone with reward and praise. Do this for 2 or 3 days. To accomplish this:
1. Push the Tone Button (green) for 2 consecutive seconds. Then release.
2. Immediately reward your pet with verbal praise, petting, or a small food reward. Spend 3 to 5 seconds on your rewarding.
3. Wait a few minutes and repeat step 1 and 2 until dog gets familiar with the reward system.
You can vary rewards so your pet will be excited. This stage in training is done when the dog readily waits for the reward after hearing the tone.
Find the Best Stimulation Level for Your Pet
Important: Start from the lowest level and work your way up to find the best stimulation level for your pet.
The Remote Trainer has 8 Low and 8 High Stimulation Levels to choose from.
Put on the collar and your pet and find the Stimulation Level that is best for him. This is the Recognition Level.
The Recognition level is that which you notice a slight change in your pet’s behavior, such as looking around in curiosity, scratching at his collar, or flicking his ears. This means that he is recognizing the stimulation.
To find your pet’s Recognition Level; follow the steps below.
1. Start at Level 1 Low on the Digital Display. Press the Stimulation Button (yellow) continuously for 1 to 2 seconds.
(When the Stimulation Button is held down for 12 consecutive seconds, the Transmitter automatically “times-out”, so you need to release and press the button again before additional stimulation can be delivered)
2. If pet does not react, repeat process. If after several attempts you still see no reaction then you can move up one level higher and repeat the process.
3. Move up through the Stimulation Levels you find your pet reacting to the stimulation.
4. If your pet continues to show no response even at Level 8 High, check the fit of the Receiver Collar to see if there is contact on dog’s skin. If your pet has long or thick hair, contact our Customer Care Center so you can get long Contact Points that is ideal for hairy breeds. Once you have ensured contact, repeat the process starting from the lowest level. If this still does not yield any results, try trimming dog’s hair in the neck area where contact points are located.
5. YOUR PET SHOULD NEVER VOCALIZE NOR PANIC WHEN RECEIVING STIMULATION. PANIC SIMPLY MEANS THAT THE STIMULATION LEVEL IS TOO HIGH. If this happens, lower the level and see if he reacts normally.
This is a level up button. When you press the button (red), it will send a stimulation that is 2 levels higher than the currently selected level. For example, if the Stimulation Level is set at Level 2 Low, a touch of the +2 Boost button will stimulate at Level 4 Low. Note: The system is at its maximum level at 8 High.
Teaching Basic Obedience
The “Sit” Command
1. Use a separate, non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar, and attach a 10-foot leash. Note: Be careful and see to it that the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.
2. Hold the leash and the Remote Transmitter in one hand. Keep your other hand free to guide or gesture your pet into a “Sit” position.
3. Press and hold the Stimulation Button, starting at your pet’s Recognition Level.
4. Give the “Sit” command while continuing to hold the Stimulation Button.
5. Release the Stimulation Button as soon as your pet is in “sit” position, and praise him.
6. Release your pet from the “Sit” command and play with him to relax him.
7. Repeat Steps 2 through 6.
Note: Repeat the process until your pet is able to follow the “sit” command without fail. Keep your pet close to you while teaching the “Sit” command.
The “Come” Command
1. Use a separate, non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar, and attach a 10-foot leash. Note: Be sure that the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.
2. Hold your leash in one hand and the Remote Transmitter in the other.
3. Allow pet to walk away from you. Set device to the Recognition Level for your pet, press and hold the Stimulation Button on your Remote Transmitter.
4. Give the command “Come” while continuing to hold the Stimulation Button.
5. Gently guide your pet toward you until follows your direction.
6. Release the Stimulation Button as soon as your pet steps towards you. If he has obediently followed your command, pet and praise him enthusiastically.
7. Move backwards and allow pet to follow while praising him the entire time.
8. Praise your pet as soon as he has returned to your direction.
9. Repeat Steps 3 through 8 for several time.
10. After several trials, your pet should follow “Come” command easily. Move away from him without giving a command. When your pet turns to look at you, give the command “Come” (WITHOUT STIMULATION) and praise him while you continue to back up. Praise your pet when he returns to you.
11. Use your leash to help control your pet from running past you.
The “Stay” Command
1. Use a separate, non-metallic collar on your pet’s neck ABOVE the Receiver Collar, and attach a 10-foot leash. Note: The extra collar should not put pressure on the Contact Points.
2. Let dog stay on his bed. Hold your leash in one hand and the Remote Transmitter in the other.
3. Then slowly walk towards the bed without saying anything to your pet.
4. If pet attempts to leave the bed, press and hold the Stimulation Button and give the “Stay” command. Continue to hold the button until pet stays in his bed. If necessary, use the leash to guide your pet onto his place.
5. Praise pet once he is back on his bed.
6. Once pet has already settled on his bed, release the button and play with him.
7. Repeat steps 1 through 5.
Eliminating Unwanted Behavior
Pets usually jump up to get attention. If you do not want your pet to be jumping at you or any ther person, then this behavior should not be tolerated. Each time the dog attempts to jump on someone, he should be reprimanded and encouraged with alternate and acceptable behavior, for which he can receive praise.
Note: Train your dog with the “Sit” command before moving on with this command.
1. Set device to pet’s Recognition Level.
2. When pet attempts to jump on you, press the Stimulation Button and give the command “Sit.”
3. Release the Stimulation Button as soon as your dog is in “sit” position. Verbally praise him for obeying your command.
4. If your pet ignores the stimulation and jumps, increase the Intensity Level by 1. Then repeat step 1-3.
5. Practice this exercise in several different areas and use different people for distractions until pet obediently follows sit command.
Understand first why your pet is digging as it may be natural to some dogs. Try to figure out the reason why your dog digs and if possible, address the issue so he no longer has the desire to do it. For example; if you find out that your dog digs because he is looking for colder areas in the yard to rest on; then provide that cold spot. Or you may provide these common solutions.
● A cool, shaded area in which to lie down, and plenty of water.
● An alternate activity, such as a favorite toy.
● Plenty of play, exercise, and attention.
● A yard free from rodents or prey that he may be trying to flush out.
1. Set the Intensity Level 1 higher than your pet’s Recognition Level.
2. Place the Receiver Collar on your pet and pet him for atleast 10 minutes before placing him in the yard. Make sure no people or other pets are in the yard, so your pet will not associate the stimulation with anything other than his digging. Yard must be securely fenced in or contained during training.
3. Leave pet in the yard. Stay in a place where your pet cannot see you. You can be on a window or behind a fence to see his actions. Wait until your pet begins to dig.
4. Once pet starts digging, press the Stimulation Button and release it when he stops. Press the button only when pet is in the act of digging. Do not say anything to him while giving him corrections.
5. If pet ignores the stimulation continues digging, increase the Intensity by 1 level and press the button again until he responds to the correction.
6. Watch your pet as he may choose another area to dig. Once he starts digging, send the correction.
7. Do not allow your pet in the yard unsupervised so that all his digging will give him corrections.
Chasing is an instinctive behavior that is stimulated by moving objects. While some chasing can be tolerated, there are also those types of chasing that can put pet in harm’s way and most often leaves you helpless. Do not allow your dog off the leash or out of a contained area until he has learned the “Come” command. Make sure you are be able to let him “come” to you when dog is set loose. Again, exercise consistency in training. Correct each time a misbehavior is committed.
CAUTION: You and your dog should always be safe during on-leash training. Your dog should be on a strong leash that is long enough to allow him to be comfortable around but not too long for him to reach a road or other unsafe area. You as the trainor must also be physically strong enough to restrain your dog when he tries to chase.
1. If dog has not yet learned the “Come” command, keep him on a leash so you can physically stop him before he reaches the object he is chasing.
2. Set device to intensity that is one level higher than your dog’s Recognition Level.
3. Set him up on a situation where your dog is enticed to chase an object. Common chase items could be cars, bicycles, or any moving object. (do not use toys).
4. When the chase object passes in front of your dog, hold the leash firmly. When your dog starts to chase the object, press and hold the Stimulation Button until he stops chasing.
5. Once the dog has stopped chasing the object, release the button immediately, walk backwards and give the command “Come.” Praise your dog as he comes to you.
6. Repeat the process until your obeys your come command easily.
The most practical way of preventing your dog from trash raiding is to simple keep garbage away. But since there are unavoidable circumstances where trash is in sight, you can use the Remote Trainer to teach your pet to stay away. Consistency should be practiced; so you ought to correct the dog each time he attempt to raid the trash.
1. Set the Intensity one Level higher than your pet’s Recognition Level.
2. Set up a tempting trash for your pet to raid.
3. Stay somewhere your pet can not see you. Make sure you can clearly see what your pet is doing from where you are located.
4. Once his mouth touches the bait, press and hold the Stimulation Button. Release the button immediately after your pet gets his mouth off the trash.
5. Do that without saying anything so your pet learns the association of the trash and the correction.
6. If pet does not respond to the stimulation and continues raiding the trash, increase the Intensity one level higher and repeat the process.
7. Repeat this process in several different locations with different temptations.
