How the Transmitter buttons work
Tone Only Button (Black with Bar): Sends an audible tone to the collar. No stimulation is delivered. Vibration Only Button ((Orange with Dot)/Sock Only Button (Black with Bar):
Delivers vibration/shock through the Contact Points on the Receiver Collar at the level shown on the Digital Display. When held down for 10 consecutive seconds, the Transmitter will "time-out", and vibration/shock cannot be delivered for 5 seconds. you must release and press the button again after the 5 second time-out period, before additional vibration/shock can be delivered.
- Vibra/Shock Up Button (): Increases vibration/shock Level by 1.
- Vibra/Shock Down Button (): Decrease vibration/shock Level by 1.
Dog 1/2 Toggle Switch Located on the upper left face of the Transmitter is a toggle switch, allowing switch between Dog 1 and Dog 2.
The Receiver/Collar should be fitted so that the surgical stainless steel contact points press firmly against the dog's skin. When properly fitted, you should be able to fit a finger or two snugly in between the collar and your dog's skin. When properly fitted, the Receiver/Collar should not move on the dog. The best location for the Receiver/Collar box is either side of the dog's windpipe.
A loose fit can allow the Receiver/Collar to move around on the dog's neck. When this happens, the contact points may rub the skin and cause irritation. If the Receiver/Collar is too tight, the dogs may have difficulty breathing.
How to find the best Vibration/Shock Level
The unit comes with Up and Down buttons to control the Vibration/Shock Level, with Level 1 being the lowest level and Level 16 being the highest.
The level of Vibration/Shock best suited for your dog depends on your dog's temperament and threshold for Vibration/Shock. Always start at the lowest level and work your way up.
The appropriate level can be found when the dog responds to the Vibration/Shock with a mild reaction, such as a tensing of the neck muscles. The Vibration/Shock Level may vary depending on the training situation. When highly distracted, dogs will require a higher level of Vibration/Shock.
To maximize the distance
The unit has 600 meter range. The range may vary depending on the way the Transmitter is held. Hold the transmitter away from your body to receive the greatest range. For maximum signal strength, keep the device properly charged.
Avoid touching the Antenna or the range may decrease substantially.
