Once you have correctly placed the receiver collar on your pet (see your manual or read How do I fit the collar?), it is time to find the stimulation level that is best for him. This is called the Recognition Level. At the right recognition level, you will notice only a slight change in your pet's behavior, such as looking around in curiosity, scratching at his collar, or flicking his ears. Follow these steps to find your pet's Recognition Level.
For collars with static stimulation
For collars with spray stimulation
Make sure there is enough spray in the collar.Close
Typical range is 65-75% of the maximum range due to terrain, weather, buildings, cables, hills/valleys, power lines, etc. If you are in a high-influence area, for example near big radio-emitters or high-power-lines, this can reduce greatly the range. The same can happen if you are on the top of a hill while your dog is in the valley, or vice versa.
If you are experiencing less than 50% range or if these environmental factors have been eliminated:
Probably not, but it depends on how well your dog listens to your commands without the collar on. He may need to wear the collar from time to time for reinforcement.Close

The spray is not harmful. The burst of spray distracts or interrupts your dog's pattern of behaviour. Spray is available in citronella scent or unscented refill cans. Some dogs find one scent to be slightly more unpleasant than another and this can make fast training at times or you, as the owner, may have a preference. Regardless of the scent, the spray dissipates quickly and is safe for humans and pets.Close
Gently clean around the spray nozzle with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.Close
