The RopriPet Active Collar Training System consists of an electronic collar and remote control transmitter which allows the dog owner to send various signals during training sessions.
We've listened to our customers who have been asking us to look into training systems for months. Our team has been working on the Active Collar for quite some time and we are very pleased that we have been able to release it in time for the holiday shopping season.
We stress that the RopriPet Active Collar is designed to be used in conjunction with a positive reinforcement training regime. It is a well-known fact that if a dog has turned away and can’t see you, then in his mind you are not there, you don’t exist. In this case it is not uncommon for a dog to totally ignore any commands. With the Active Collar Training System the dog trainer now has a range of stimulants designed to draw the dog’s attention back to where it should be. Depending on the particular dog and his level of stubbornness, the trainer can choose from a short and sharp beeping noise, 100 different levels of vibration, or in extreme cases, a short, low voltage electrical stimulant.
None of the stimulant settings are designed to instill fear or pain to the dog unlike many older style e-Collars that were definitely designed for those purposes. The electrical stimulant, for instance, is not at a much higher level than the many TENS devices used in Electrotherapy Pain Management for humans, and even so can be adjusted down 100 levels in the same manner the vibration function can be adjusted.
The Active Collar features an LCD display, 330-yard range, is fully rechargeable (both receiver and transmitter) and is weatherproof. The kit is supplied with one receiver for training one dog, but can be expanded to a second collar if two dogs are to be trained at once.
For the time being, if a customer wants to expand the system to a second collar, the will need to contact us directly to arrange an expansion receiver, but by mid-December we hope to be able to offer both kits on Amazon.com. Shortly after that, we will be introducing a fully waterproof and submersible version in both one and two dog kits.
