There are two basic components to a remote training system: a handheld “transmitter” and a “receiver” which is worn on a dog collar.
The transmitter sends a radio signal to a special receiver on the dog’s collar. The receiver on the collar “communicates” to your dog through a set of two stainless steel posts. The posts are part of the receiver collar and they are in contact with your dog’s neck.
You can use the remote trainer to send a wide range of training messages to your pet. Depending on the training situation, the training message may be delivered as:
- An audible tone or a vibration
- A brief stimulation* (1 second)
- A constant stimulation (up to 8 seconds)
The training message from the dog’s receiver collar can get your dog’s attention or distract him from an unwanted behavior. By obeying your obedience command or by stopping the undesired behavior, your dog quickly learns to avoid and/or stop tone or sensation which is delivered by the receiver collar.
“Stimulation” may also be referred to as “correction”, “training stimulation”, “training correction”, “training signal”; or “shock”
