I bought another small dog E collar to try (I had an old one that didn't have any range and weighed a 3rd of my dogs weight!) The vibration wasn't adjustable, super loud and strong as was the tone. It also wasn't much lighter (despite the claims) than my old one. I didn't even try the shock! I found this one and it is smaller and lighter, there is no shock mode which I don't need, so the collar fits much nicer on her neck. The range is excellent, even on the other side of the house while outside! The tone and vibration volume are adjustable. Yes it goes to sleep so just hit the button twice in succession. I only use a short press anyway. I don't know about the battery life yet as I just received it today.
I got this remote control collar, and it worked like a charm on my little barky dog. I just needed the sound function to get her to stop barking at other dogs. Unfortunately, the remote lost battery power very quickly, and I reached out via email, and they were very responsive with working with me to get a unit that did hold its power.
I really appreciate the quick responses by Antonio in sending me a new system. I would highly recommend this product and this company!
This collar has worked wonderfully with my min pin. She responds to the vibration. So far the battery life is great but we have only been using it for a week.
We bought this one after buying the version with shock. Our other dog chewed the remote from the other and I did not want to spend $100 again. Plus, I hate the shock, and I don’t feel the need for it. We decided to go with this collar. The points on his neck are a lot smaller which is nice too. My dog is 5lbs.
