Cheap Dog Shock Collar Review
Dog Shock Collar Review- The Best Buy For Your Money
Hey there. In other post i talked about the upcoming review of a cheap dog shock training collar. Here is the review. At the beginning i thought to make a lengthy and full of explanations report. Then i thought ” hey, people don’t have so much time like you think”. So the review of this shock training collar will be technical and brief, with a lot of self explaining pictures plus video. If something is not clear enough, i will be happy to answer your questions via the comment box. yes, i have it in my possession and started using it to train my dog. Ok, let us start.
This dog shock collar is my recommendation in my Complete Buying Guide, due to its under 100$ price, acceptably good quality, features, color, etc. Did i tell you its cheap?
1. 500m range
It stands up to the test of 300m mixed terrain. Good, they did not lie.
2. Remote beeper
Perfect extra, i don’t use it for now though as intended. Instead i have it with me and beep the dog to come to me, when i don’t want to shout. From other manufacturer only the price of this gadget is twice the price of this whole pack
3. Waterproof design
Yes, check video with my dog bathing at the sea. Still haven’t tested the transmitter but handled it many times with wet hands at the beach without any problem.
The collar itself is made from polyurethane which in USA is called Biothane. And yes, the Chinese polyurethane collars are same quality as the expensive Biothane ones, so stop wasting money. Very strong , easy to clean and waterproof. No smell, bacteria or mud, i use only this type nowadays.
4. Fluorescent color
Very cool and safety color, dog collar is visible from a mile
5. Small size
Rather than small i would say normal, but as you can see from the pictures it easily fits in my pocket, without any danger of pressing a button by accident, due to the good design and button placement
6. 9 sounds
Very nice feature, the sound are audible and clear, considering the small size of the beeper. And the best of all is that the beeper has 3 functions. Two of them is to hear what the dog is doing and the third one is a locator function.Means that you press a button and the collar emits a sound, cool,now we can find the dog in total darkness
7. 9 levels of vibration
Useless function, i put the level to 9 and teats it.
8. 9 levels of shock
Mild to medium, valid for all dog breeds and personalities.Yes i test them on myself, from 1 to 9. One is like a spark from piezoelectric lighter, you feel it but it doesn’t hurt. Three is like- “Hey, you have to pay attention”. Level 9 is like a pin prick . Hurts a bit for a second.
Bottom line is that it works and will not hurt or damage the dog . It is good for any dog, I use level 3 with great success. My dog is too crazy for level one.
9. Very light
polyurethane collar- 80g
all together with collar-190g
Pretty good result there. Even a small dog will not be bothered. I am talking about Small dogs not Toy dogs obviously!
10. LCD display,buttons and plastic
Very good and easy to understand. Buttons and plastic are rubberized. Like at the very expensive dog shock collars. Perfect quality for the money.
11. Lipo batteries powered
Use it from a week and everything holds charge. Of course depends on the use. By the way the transmitter goes in standby after 2 min, so good battery life, but have to be prepared if you would use it as it takes like 3 sec to wake it up. Stays paired, so no problem with this.
12. 2 sizes of electrodes, long and short
Perfect. I have an English Foxhound and started with the short ones, but after a day changed them with the long electrodes. Now the result is consistent.
13. Test Bulb
Good for testing. I don’t use it, instead i like the vibration for this purpose.
Dog Shock Collar Review Score: TOTAL 9 (from 10max)
While it holds up well to what is stated, its not a perfect product like a shock collar worth 500$, nor it has the same warranty. Hence the price. Even so, this is the best buy considering its value. I would recommend that product over and over again to my friends.
WHERE TO BUY:
/all prices are including shipping costs/
1. If you live outside USA or simply want the BEST DEAL ever, Ali Express is the answer. This is the best vendor with good feedback and the price is 76$ at the time of writing.
2. If you live in USA, i recommend Amazon.This is the best place to buy it due to its strict seller policy. Again the seller is checked by me for good feedback and has the lowest price. They have 2 listing with slightly different price, 90$ and here for 86$
3. The third place to buy it is from Ebay if you feel more comfortable there. Check this seller , i bought mine from there exactly. No duty fees from China, as they state it as a present. Check my pictures. Usually takes 15 days.
If by any chance he doesn’t have one, you can contact him, he is quite kind and speaks good English . It took me a lot of fiddling to find the way how to find the exact item at ebay
