Longer contact probes is also included.

TRAINING GUIDE

Stimulation Methods

  • SMART DOG by PetSafe Remote Trainer uses 1 beep, 1 vibration, and 15 levels of static stimulation.
  • This way, you can choose the stimulation type that is best suited for your pet personality. Each dog has a different temperament, and some forms of stimulation work better than others.
  • This will make your training effective and flexible according to your dog’s temperament.

Tone (Beep)

  • The SMART DOG Tone can be used as a warning before vibration or static stimulation to stop unwanted behaviors.
  • Trainer tone volume is non-adjustable. With the proper training, your dog will learn that they will get stimulation only if you do not like their behaviours.
  • The tone stimulation can be used for reinforcing positive behaviors.
  • But you should absolutely never use tone for correcting bad behaviour and reinforcing positive behaviour to avoid confusion.
     

Vibration Only

The SMART DOG Trainer by PetSafe has one non-adjustable level of vibration stimulation. When you push the vibration button, the contact points on the training collar will vibrate to interrupt the dog’s behavior. In this way, by using the vibration alone or just before giving your dog the static stimulation of not complying with your command, this will give your dog the chance to decide whether to comply with your command before it gets a static stimulation.


DOG TRAINING RECOMMENDATIONS

Basic Training - Training starts the moment you bring your puppy home. You should begin basic training immediately. While your dog will not be ready for the PetSafe product until 6 months of agree

Remote Trainer - When your dog understands the basic obedience commands, introduce your SMART DOG Collar.

Stop Unwanted Behaviour - The behavior you redirect them to should be “incompatible” with the unwanted behavior. The level of stimulation should be enough to interrupt your dog and give you the ability to redirect your dog’s attention to another behavior.

One Command at a Time - Teach your dog one command at a time.

Conditioning the Collar - While your dog is wearing the collar, spend ample time playing and letting your dog be a dog. Make sure that the dog will not see or associate your smartphone as the remote controller of the stimulation.
