There are several things to consider when shopping for a dog training collar. First of all, how many collars do you need? Most people will only need one collar; however, in many cases you can program one remote to work with multiple collars. You will toggle in between the shock collars by setting them up on different channels and switching back and forth between the channels to power each collar.
Another question to answer is how large a collar you need. Most collars are adjustable, and the item description should tell you what the width and circumference of the collar is, along with providing a recommendation for what weight range the collar might best fit.
You’ll also want to think about what features you want the collar to offer, and how you plan to use the collar to train your dog. Most collars will offer beep, shock, or vibrate settings. Some collars may also offer lights or tones specifically designed to train dogs. If your dog likes to play in the water, or if you want the collar to be safe for use on rainy days, you may want to invest in a waterproof collar. You should also pay attention to what sort of range the collar can be operated within. A range of 1000 feet is average, with some collars having a slightly smaller range, and other collars remaining functional up to a half-mile away from the receiver.
Lastly, you’ll want to think about what type of battery you prefer. Rechargeable batteries are more convenient, and often cheaper in the long run. However, battery-powered collars may be better for smaller dogs, as they tend to put off a shock that isn’t as powerful. Replaceable battery-powered collars may also last longer; however, they will have a shorter range. That said, if you have a smaller dog, they may not ever be more than 1,000 feet away from you anyway, so perhaps this isn’t a major concern.
If you like to let your dogs run, this collar gives you the peace of mind that you’ll still be able to alert them even from far away distances.
