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!!
