    Probably not. But you may try to reinforce training with the Collar.
  3. Can I use Dobe Dog Training System with more than one dog?
    Yes, you just need to purchase another collar receiver for the system.
  4. Can I attach a leash to the Collar Receiver?
    NO. This can result in pulling the Contact Points too tightly against your dog’s neck. Attach a leash to a separate, nonmetallic collar or a harness. Ensure the extra collar does not put pressure on the Contact Points.
  5. How long can I leave Collar Receiver on my dog?
    The design of the collar discourages constant wearing.
    We recommend not having the dog wear the Collar for more than 12 hour out of every 24-hour period.

Troubleshooting

1. My dog is not reacting to the collar.

Make sure the receiver/collar is turned on. And check the intensity levels of vibrate, electrostatic pulse, make sure it is not set to 0.

Be sure the strap is on the dog tight enough so that both contact points are touching the dog’s skin.

The contact points may be too short for your dog’s thick or long coat. If you are already using longer contact points, you may need to trim the hair on the dog neck, so that both contact points are touching the dog’s skin.

If tested for all of the above and the dog is still not responding, please try re-pairing the Remote Transmitter and Collar Receiver.

2. I want to test Collar Receiver myself, but it does not work.

When testing the collar by your hands, please touch the two electrodes simultaneously, as touching one electrode will not work.

3. LED indicator light comes on, but I do not feel any stimulation.

Your tolerance may be higher than your dog’s. You may need to try the unit on your fingertips where sensitivity is higher and/or increase the stimulation level. Be sure both contact points are touching both of your fingertips.

The battery may be low, check the LED indicator light on the transmitter and receiver/collar for battery life.

If you have a full charge, and you have done all of the above, your unit may need to be serviced

4. The transmitter has no range, or the stimulation is weaker when my dog is farther away.

Check to see if your fingers are touching the antenna, as the range may decrease substantially.

The range indicated on the unit’s box is for flat terrain (line of sight). Heavy brush, trees, hills, buildings, and/or moisture will affect the range of your unit. For the best range, hold the transmitter vertically above your head, and/or try moving to higher ground.

Any electrical conductors will affect the range, such as cars, chain-link dog runs, metal buildings, and radio towers. For the best results, operate away from these structures.

General Training Tips

Follow these tips on how to get the best out of your Dobe Dog Training System

  1. Make training sessions short and positive {between 10-15 minutes long for each session.) This will enable the dog to keep its attention focused on the trainer.
  2. Train one dog at a time.
  3. During the first initial training sessions, keep the dog in a familiar outdoor environment. Training in new locations may cause the dog to become distracted, causing you to reinforce commands with the Collar Receiver more than necessary.
  4. Use a long leash fastened to a non-metallic collar to help the dog’s learning. Ensure the additional collar and leash does not interfere
    with the Contact Points on the Collar Receiver. Do not use the dog training system without a long leash until your dogs is fully trained.
  5. More success will occur by teaching the dog a command first before trying to reinforce the command with Remote Transmitter.
  6. For basic obedience training, vibration is more useful.
  7. Issue one obedience command at a time, this will reduce confusion and allow the dog to remain focused. Do not use the training system for commands that the dog has not learned.
  8. During training, look for all the positive changes in the dog’s behavior and remember to reinforce them promptly with ample praise and reward.
  9. Avoid over-correcting your dog. Use as little remote correction as possible during the training process.
  10. When the dog has become apparently perplexed, shift the focus of the training by drawing the dog’s attention to a command they
    have familiarity. Example: Tell the dog to sit and give abundant praise and encouragement on successful completion of the sit command.
  11. Do not use the dog training system to correct or eliminate forms of aggression or biting behavior. When the dog is showing signs of aggressive behavior, immediately contact a professional dog trainer in your local area.
  12. Please keep in mind, that you should keep training sessions short and end every session on a high note. Stop training and play with the dog as soon the dog has accomplished a new level of proficiency.
Teaching Your Dog the Positive Tone

Before using the Trainer to correct your dog, spend 10 to 15 minutes per day for 2 or 3 days helping him create the association of the tone with reward and praise. To accomplish this:

Eliminating Unwanted Behaviour

Jumping UP

Pets typically jump up to get attention. If you do not want your dog to jump on you, then friends or members of the family should not encourage this behavior. That means every lime your dog jumps on someone, he should be reprimanded or redirected to an alternate and acceptable behavior, for which he can receive praise.

doBe Dog Training Anti-Bark - Jumping Up

  2. Release the Stimulation Button immediately once your dog is sitting, and verbally praise him.
  3. If your dog ignores this stimulation, increase the intensity Level until he/she responds.
  4. Practice this exercise in several different areas and use different people for distractions.

Digging

It is important to first understand why your dog is digging. Many dogs, such as terriers, were bred to flush out prey, and digging is very innate to them. Other dogs may be digging to find a cool spot to lie down, or simply out of boredom. Your dog may no longer have the desire to dig if he is provided with the following:

A cool, shaded area in which to lie down, and plenty of water.
An alternate activity, such as a favourite toy.
Plenty of play, exercise, and attention.
A yard free from rodents or prey that he may be trying to flush out.

  1. Place the Receiver on your dog and wait at least 10 minutes before placing him in the yard. No other people or pets should in the yard, as you do not want your dog to associate the stimulation with anything other than his digging. Your dog must be securely fenced in or contained during training.
  2. From a window or area where your dog can not see you. Wait until your dog begins to dig.
  3. While your dog digs, press the Stimulation Button and release it when he stops digging. Only press the button while your dog is in the act of digging, and do not say anything to him.
  4. If your dog ignores this stimulation, increase the Intensity Level.
  5. Continue to watch your dog, as he may choose another area to dig.
  6. Do not allow your dog in the yard unsupervised until he has completely stopped digging.

Cashing

Never allow your dog off the leash or out of a contained area until he has learned the “Come” command, regardless of distraction Be consistent and correct your dog every time he chases something.

CAUSION
It is vitally important that you and your dog remain safe while carrying out this training. Your dog Should be on a strong leash, long enough for him to attempt to chase an object, but short enough for him not to reach a road or other unsafe area. You must also be physically strong enough or restrain your dog when he tries to chase.

  1. If your dog has not learned the “Come” command, keep a leash on him so you can physically stop him before he reaches the object he is chasing.
  2. Set up a scenario where your dog is enticed to chase an object. Common items could be cars, motorcycles, bicycles, etc. (Do not use toys.)
  3. When the object passes in front of your dog, make sure to hold the leash with a firm grip. As soon as your dog begins to chase the object, press and hold the Stimulation button until he stops.
  4. When your dog stops chasing the object, immediately release the button, walk backwards and give the Command “Come”. Praise your dog as he comes to you.
  5. Repeat the process until your dog stops chasing the object.
