The worst of his crimes were eating anything he could find on the grass, and refusing to drop it when I would tell him to. He would stand about 15 feet away and look at me, furiously chewing, while I was yelling at him to drop it. Since we have a lot of mushrooms around the property, it was imperative that he obey when I told him to drop things he was eating in the yard. Secondly, he would run out in the road and just ignore all my orders to come back. Thirdly, he only wanted to poop on our neighbor's grass. The first time I put the collar on him, I was having a hard time determining what was the proper tightness, since I never put collars on him. I had decided to use the tones as a warning before the shock, like an electric fence does, so I gave him the tone when he disobeyed, and then, the shock level 1, 2, 3, then 4. The collar was too loose, so he didn't listen that time. Then, I tightened the collar one hole, and again, he started running wildly towards my neighbor's yard. I told him to stop, gave him the tone, and accidentally hit shock level 4 immediately after the tone. Well, that time, he felt it, and he jumped about 2 feet in the air, turned and came yelping back to me. I felt really bad, because I hadn't meant to go right up to shock level 4, so I took him in the house and comforted him. The next time we went out, I put the collar on, and when he started disobeying, I pressed the tone. Immediately, he obeyed, just as if he had been shocked. Now, all I have to do with that dog, is press the tone, and whatever I'm telling him to do, he does! It is truly amazing to me that this collar worked so fast and so well. I am now proud in front of neighbors that I used to be constantly humiliated in front of, with a little 15 pound dog that would have me running all over the yard after, all the while scurrying just out of my reach, and having a high old time making me look foolish. I love this collar. I will never be without it now.
