I have two large dogs that like to wrestle, play in the water and do the normal everyday things that dogs do. These collars are junk, I've had to replace one or both every two to three months because they break. First, doesn't take much of a tug from another dog on the collar to break the contact pins from the "plastic" housing. Once a pin is broken, they are no longer water resistant and just a little water shorts them out. The design is very poorly engineered, the contact pins actually hold the receiver to the collar, the pins are set with a brass insert directly into the plastic housing which isn't much thicker than a plastic fork. I've bought at least 8 of these since purchasing this system...I recommend you seriously look into another brand, especially if you have a large breed.

I've had this system for over a year now and got it as an alternative to replacing a $7500 wood fence. I have two dogs a Siberian Husky (escape artist) and a Great Pyrenees (130 lbs explorer). I set the system up and it only took one try at setting #3 to convince the Husky that walking out the gate or digging wasn't a good idea. The pyrenees took #4 to get the message (5 settings total). Both are now set to #1 (noise and vibration only). I've taken the collars of several times and forgotten to put them back on and they're not tempted to cross the line. The system works great for a medium size dog however the sensitivity isn't strong enought for tall dogs if the line is burried.
If you're worried about the "shock" don't be. I grabbed a collar out of the truck and turned to close to the fence with it in my hand and it got me. It feels like a really hard grab and only seemed to affect the skin with no prolonged symptoms (ie muscle craps).
Pros: very effective for price, no longterm symptoms, easily add multiple dogs
Cons: running starts can defeat system, need visual barrier to help training

We have a large area in the country. It is almost 5 acres. We didn't want to keep our dogs locked up all the time so we invested in a perimeter fence system. The collar that we chose for our very stubborn, long haired, dogs was this one. We tried every other collar on the market and they would go right through it as if they didn't even have a collar on. With this collar, the longer prongs along with the 9 Volt battery gave the needed amount of motivation to deter our dogs from testing our perimeter fence. We are happy knowing that our dogs have freedom and safety from being hit by passing cars.
