Neil's Review

Excellent entry-level remote training collar for pet breed dogs. I love that it has most of the quality features of professional training collars including; 300m range, waterproof, rechargeable and expandable up to two dogs! Designed with lower stimulation levels, these units would not be recommended for stubborn dogs or working breed dogs. Excellent for fixing behaviours around the home or at the dog park.

PetSafe 300m Remote Trainer

The PetSafe 300m Remote Trainer is available in 2 models - Lite and Standard. The PetSafe Remote Trainers are easy-to-use static electric remote trainers recommended for small to large pet dogs. Please note: If you have a working breed dog or stubborn dog, we recommend considering our professional remote trainers.

Both PetSafe Remote Trainers (Lite and Standard) are a great tool for training your dog out of nuisance habits including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Pulling clothes off the washing line
  • Pulling on the lead during walks
  • Digging up the yard
  • Stealing food off the kitchen bench/table
  • Jumping up on people
  • And other behavioural issues.

The remote transmitter features a compact design that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand for easy, discreet operation at home and out & about. The collar receiver features a modern design that fits comfortably on your dog's neck and looks neat on all breeds and sizes of dogs.

The remote trainers are expandable up to 2 dogs and have a 300m range for close range training. The systems feature 15 levels of correction, a tone-only option, and a vibration only option. The systems are completely waterproof, rechargeable and include a 3-year Warranty.

Handpiece Operation

Use the buttons on the left-hand side of the handpiece to select the stimulation level you want the collar to deliver. When your dog is misbehaving, press the stimulation button on the top right of the handpiece to deliver the static stimulation to your dog to deter them from their habits.

We recommend starting at level one and slowly increasing the stimulation strength one level until you reach a level that matches your dog's drive. Levels 8-15 are locked to prevent any accidental corrections. To unlock the levels, simply press and hold down the two buttons on the left-hand side of the collar until the lock symbol on the screen disappears. The collar will deliver the static stimulation for the length of time you're pressing down on the stimulation button.
