We have the most stubborn German Shepherd! This "trainer" works great! Even though he still has his moments, he is learning quite well. I would definitely recommend the PetSafe Remote Trainer! Be sure to follow instructions, as I think it was very important to familiarize him with the "positive tone" before heading out for walks.

My dog responded very well to the big dog trainer and now responds when I just pick up the remote. I've used it to train her to stay on her rug when I'm eating, not jump on people, and am currently using it to train her to stay on the porch and not run.

Does the device respond to the sound of the dog barking or only the remote?
Press the tone button on the transmitter. This button can be used to √Ę‚‚¨Ň“warn√Ę‚‚¨¬ your dog instead of giving him a stimulation. The sound emitted by the receiver can be just as effective as the stimulation on some dogs. √Ę‚‚¨¬Ę To indicate that tone is being activated, the red LED light on the transmitter will remain illuminated as long as the button is pressed. If the LED light begins flashing every four seconds or does not illuminate, the transmitter battery should be replaced. To train using stimulation: Use this button when either training or deterring unwanted behavior when the tone is not effective. Your dog responds to the transmitter√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ęs stimulation through two contact points on the waterproof receiver that touch the dog√Ę‚‚¨‚"Ęs neck. Therefore, it is important that the receiver is fitted properly onto your dog. Your unit comes equipped with two sets of contact points, medium and long. The medium should be used with dogs having shorter hair; the long should be used with dogs having longer hair. The contact points on the receiver, from the factory, are medium length.
