Great product
Always dependable. It has been immersed in water and through frigid temperatures--it always works. We use it everyday and charge it once a week.

Field Trainer Helped in Hiking with Two Dogs
My Field Trainer is 2-years old. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking in Michigan and use the Field Trainer to correct the behavior of Annie (80 lb. Lab) and Roxie (50 Pit Bull Mix). I hike in several DNR Parks 5-days a week with both dogs. The terrain we cover is wooded and hilly with both groomed trails and off trail hiking.

Both dogs are reasonably well behaved, but I had some problems with meeting other dogs. One dog would start barking and acting aggressive which made the other dog want to jump into the fray. Handling 130 pounds of dog on a 6 foot leash can be challenging especially with Annie who pulls like a John Deere.

I was hesitant to try the E-collar but after a specially difficult leash pulling contest with the 2-dogs over someone's shepherd-I bought one. The collar corrected Annie's behavior on the first try. The collar worked so well that I immediately purchased a second collar for Roxie.

After a 2-years of wearing the collars, I have very few problems with the dogs. They both understand the rules of the road for hikes and backpacking trips. On most trips both dogs are off leash at least 50% of the time. The vibration mode is used as a signal to return to me immediately. The correction strength for Annie is setting 2, Roxie's is setting 1. Both dogs react immediately to a correction, and are more responsive to verbal commands now.

I have never been in a situation where it took multiple correction to stop a dog's misbehavior. Both dogs respond immediately.

The biggest benefit of the Field Trainer 425 is peace of mind for me. I never worry about my dog's reaction to any situation. They are very quiet and accepting of other dogs, and never pull the leash when they see a squirrel, rabbit or turkey. I never take detours or look for another route when I see a someone walking their dog on my trail. The E-Collar gives me a great deal of confidence and makes our hikes and backpacking trips much more relaxing for me and the dogs.

I bought this collar this last October 2014, did not use it right away, when I did use it for the first time and only time the side button fell off when I was walking with my dog. It was past the 30 days to return it back to store. My first one I bought in 2008 and worked for long time. Not impressed.
