IPets/Petrainer Product Questions

Q: How old does my dog have to be before using our training systems? 

Your dog should be able to learn basic obedience commands such as "sit" or "stay." 

Q: Are there weight requirements to use your systems? 

We generally recommend the dog to be above 15 pounds but it's more about your dog's neck size than weight. View our collar sizing page. 

Q: I lost my transmitter or receiver, am I able to replace the missing device without purchasing a new training system?  

Yes, click on remote transmitter to purchase a replacement transmitter and click on receiver to purchase a replacement receiver. 

Q: My collar strap has extra material hanging off from my dog's neck, can you cut down the collar strap? 

Yes, but you can only cut down collar straps that made out of plastic material. You can't cut our nylon collar straps.

Q: What are these 3 sets of metal prongs in a little baggy within my product box? 

What you're looking at is what we refer to as Contact Points. Contact points attach to the metal screws on your collar receiver. Simply, use your hands to tighten them on the screws. To choose what size of contact point to use, base it off your dog's fur length. If they have long fur, use the long contact points. Short fur, use the short contact points. 

Q: What is this translucent, white piece with a bulb in the center that's enclosed in my product box? 

You're looking at our static shock tester. This allows you to test to see if the static shock is operating correctly. Please follow the procedure listed in your manual. 

Q: Can you pair two collars to one channel? 

Yes, if you wish to stimulate both collars simultaneously, you can pair them to the same channel. Simply do the pairing or synchronization process that's listed in the manual for your model but don't select a different channel. 

Q: Can I use the training systems on aggressive pets? 

No. Please do not use these training systems to correct or eliminate any form of aggression or biting behavior. In the event your dog is showing signs of aggressive behavior, then contact a professional dog trainer. 

Q: Can I replace the collar strap with another kind of collar? 


Q: Can I attach a leash to the collar receivers?

No. This can result in pulling the metal probes too tightly against your dog's neck. Attach a leash to separate, nonmetallic collar or a harness, ensuring the extra collar does not put pressure on the metal probes. 

Q: How do I test my Petrainer PET853

To test your bark collar, simply ensure the power is on and blow into the back of the receiver.
