The Pet Zoom Sonic Trainer may look or seem like just another one of those "as seen on tv" useless or silly gadgets but it's NOT! This product doesn't just work, it works great and it works the first time you use it. I bought it to help me get my dog's attention when I am walking him or trying to get him to learn something new in a distracting environment ( like at the dog park / pond ). I tried it out right away inside the house and not only did I get my dog's attention, but I had the attention of my three cats as well. Depending on how you follow up the sound the Sonic Trainer emits, it can be used for positive reinforcement or as a behavior deterrent. For example, when my dog hears the Sonic Trainer he sits at attention and waits for a command to follow to recieve a treat or praise. My cats however, stop whatever they are doing ( like scratching my furniture ) and scurry from the "scene of the crime". I have even used the Sonic Trainer to stop another dog from it's aggressive approach to my dog and myself. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone who has pets. It is not a painful trainer like a shock collar, but more like a " clicker " on steroids. The Pet Zoom Sonic Trainer is perfect for getting your pet's attention so that you can follow up with a command. Other training products sell for upwards of $50. The Sonic Trainer was less than $12!! That is less than the cost of a bag of dog food! Try this product and not only will you love it, you will love having the dog ( or cat ) of your dreams, who listens when you give a command.
It's the best. I trained my dog with it, he get's complements on he's behavior everyday.. I take it on walks and a dog was running after use i pushed the botton and the dog stopped and ran back home.
It's an inexpensive idem that actually works.. I defiantly recommend this product..
Before I bought I read lots of reviews and decided that it works for some dogs and not for others. And dogs can ignore it. That turned out to be exactly true. Don't expect to trust this device to deter dog attacks. Don't expect to have a perfect training tool either. My dog DOES notice it, DOESN'T much care, but DOES do better when this is added to other behavior molding methods. Your mileage WILL vary. Small investment worth trying.
We have 3 puppies to to try to control. Working Great on house Training....
My maltese puppy has a horrible habit of snitching things like my insulin syringe before I can inject it and any paper towel or tissue she sees lying around, not ot mention pens or markers, crayons, etc because as a teacher they are plentiful. When I click this sonic trainer she immediately stops and i tell he r "No or Stop" and she is learning not to snitch things. She has a habit of talking and barking when I try to go to sleep at night, especially if she has had a nap during the day, so I click the sonic trainer and she immediately lays down and is quiet. It is a wonderful product and does exactly as the advertisement says.
This product is worth the $11.88 I paid for it. It is better than the "Bark Off" because you control it. We have a yellow lab who likes to bark. It has helped deter his barking, but if he is in a playful mood, it triggers the barking more. It's a great product if you use it wisely and don't over do it.
turns out our dog's hearing not so good.....no response to signal....however, our daughter's dog responded to it, but it did not stop his barking
I bought this for my golden retriever, who jumps up on people and the first time we used it, he immediately stopped jumping! Now all I have to do is bring it out and show it to him and he won't jump up! This was well worth the money!
I got this product because i didn't want to spend to much money that i was unsure about but I am pleasantly surprised that it works. I have a dog that barks and tries to eat people when you come to my home... lol one touch and he's stops dead in his tracks...
My pitbull-mix dog is a hyper dog who, despite going to obedience classes, did not walk/heel well AT ALL on walks. She pulled SO badly that I actually got bruises and leash burn from her pulling. We tried every type of training collar. We even tried an electric shock collar. After all of this, she still had not learned what she was supposed to do on walks. Keep in mind she is very smart. She knows lots of other commands and obeys them very well (sit, stay, come, wait, speak, etc).
I ordered this remote thinking "this will probably never work, but I'll try anything at this point". Within 10 minutes of training using this remote she got it. We would walk with her and as soon as she pulled at all we would say "heel", if she continued to pull we said "no" and pressed the button at the same time so she would associate the unpleasant noise with the word "no". After about 10 minutes of repeating this process if she pulled we said "no" and she stopped pulling. AMAZING! After another 10 minutes of training she didn't pull anymore. HOLY COW!!! It's like having a new dog. I'M SO GLAD I ORDERED THIS PRODUCT!!
One thing to note, it seemed to work much better from close up and not very well from 20 feet away. From the 20 feet distance she just sort of looked at me like "huh?" and tilted her head. It didn't seem to get her attention enough to make her obey.
We were careful to make sure she didn't "notice" the remote so she didn't associate the training with the remote but rather our command words.
All in all, I am SO glad I invested the money to buy this product!!
it would have been a good product but my dog got vey mean and attacked me when i tryed to use it
My son's two dogs came to visit for three weeks and one of them whined the first few days until I began using the Pet Zoom. At first touch (and it only takes a small push not an extended hold) he stopped whining. All the dogs (mine included) were outside barking at the yard man next door. I called them and to no avail. Punched the Pet Zoom and the dogs zoomed into the house. When my son returned to pick up the dogs he was amazed. I had actually purchased this one to give to him for use in the future.
Please don't waste your money on this training aid! Cons: The cover for the battery does not stay
The dog thinks it is a toy and tries to
sniff it when in use
Pros: Pretty blue case, if that means anything
A friend of mine ranted and raved about this product. I thought there was hope of sanity around the corner only to find out that it has little to no affect on my dog.
I bought this for my Siberian Husky. The only response I get from her, is her ears will perk up.
She responds better with me clapping my hands and telling her firmly NO!
I was not very happy with this product at all!!
Save your money, or spend it on a treat for your precious pet!!
This device claims to be audible to cats. If that's true, both of my cats must be totally deaf because they don't respond to it at all. And neither does my neighbor's dog.
I hoped this would stop the cats from scratching, getting into trouble etc. but it does not work at all. Very disappointed.
Bought this product to use on my siberian husky. Does not work in any way. tried it inside and outside. Does not respond at all to this product. Tried it on other dogs that is running loose into our yard doesn't work on them either.
This really works. I say my command use the pet zoom and they pay attention. No barking. All I have to do now is show them the blue box. Thanks.
I am very pleased with this product. It really worked. The continually barking neighbor's dog, was quieted after just 3 uses. Now all I have to do is show it to her.
