Safety & Warnings
- The receiver is water-resistant, which protects it from gentle water. However, the receiver cannot be submerged in water for a long period of time. The charging port must be completely covered when using the receiver in wet environments.
- Misusing the dog training collar may injure your pet. Read the instructions carefully before using it and contact Kogan.com if you have any questions.
- Do not use on puppies younger than 6 months. This product is recommended for use with medium/large dogs.
- Training collars should be used to help fix behavioural issues, not for punishing/abusing animals.

Charge the remote and receiver before first use for upwards of 5 hours.
- The charging indicators will flash during charging and be solid when charging is complete.
- The collar cannot receive any signals while it is charging.
- The remote will show a low battery icon when it needs to be charged.
- The receiver’s indicator will flash when it needs to be charged.
- The standby battery life is about a month. Charge the device once a month even if it is not used to maintain battery health.
To avoid pressing the wrong button when switching through modes, select the mode by pressing it once and then press it again to activate it. You can also long-press to reselect the modes. There may be a 1-2 second delay when switching.
Auto Power Saving Function
- After 30 seconds without input, the remote will enter sleep mode. You can reactivate it by pressing any button.
- If there is no input after 5 minutes, the receiver will enter standby mode, and the indicator light will be off. The receiver will be reactivated once it is activated. You don't need to press any button on the remote or receiver to reactivate the receiver.
- The receiver can be turned off by pressing the power button on the receiver.
Synchronise the Remote and Receiver
- Turn on the remote by pressing the vibration button and select one of the signals by pressing the CH button.
- Adjust the levels by pressing "+" or "-" button (ensure the level is above 1).
- Press the Power button on the receiver and wait at least 5 seconds: you will hear a confirmation tone and the indicator light will flash.
- Press the Vibration button within 10 seconds and a tone will sound again to confirm the pairing is successful.
- If you have multiple receivers, simply choose a different channel and pair as per the same instructions.
The remote and receiver(s) should now be paired. Pairing is necessary to control the receiver.
You should then test each of the functions before attaching the collar to your pet.
- Test the vibration function using the vibration button: the receiver should vibrate.
- Test the sound function using the sound button: the receiver should produce a tone.
- Test the light function using the light button: the white LED on the receiver should illuminate.
- Attach the receiver to the collar and place the collar around your pet’s neck.
- Attach the rubber caps that came with the product to the touchpoints.
- Adjust the collar so that a finger can be inserted between the collar and your pet’s skin but it is not loose.
Know the Intensity of Each Mode
Knowing the intensity of each mode will be helpful to control the stimulation.
Setting the Initial Training Level
To set the initial training level you must first determine the lowest stimulation that will clearly get your dog's attention by the following steps:
- Set stimulation at zero.
- Fit the collar properly on your dog's neck and start the training.
- If he does not focus on you, begin the stimulation and progressively increase the levels until he responds to the beep/vibration. If your dog yelps or jumps, this indicates that the level is too high.
Every dog is individual and unique. Some are more sensitive than others and some learn more slowly or quickly. Be sure to test out each level on each individual dog.
Stopping Unwanted Behaviour
For this type of training, you need to set the collar at a predetermined stimulation level as outlined above.
- Let your dog roam in the area where he might misbehave, for example eating from the rubbish.
- Ensure you are out of the dog's sight, or you are at a discreet distance and wait.
- When the dog misbehaves, press the button. This will cause your dog to associate the signal with his misbehaviour. If he doesn't respond, you can increase the level.
Timing is crucial. Catching the unwanted behaviour and sending the signal at the precise moment can drastically shorten training time.
Reinforcing Learning Behaviours
If your dog knows the command but responds inconsistently or acts slower than they should, a training collar can sharpen the dog's skill.
For example, you have taught your dog to come when called, but over time he responds slower. You can communicate with him via the remote trainer so that he immediately responds to your call.
- Set the collar to initial stimulation level and test it.
- Fit the collar on your dog's neck along with his regular collar.
- Let him roam around the training area. Then give the command and simultaneously press the stimulation button.
- The instant your dog moves toward you, stop stimulation and praise him.
- If he stops before he reaches you or turns away repeat the command and continue the stimulation. Again, stop at the instant he runs to you and reward him by praising him or feeding him a treat. Repeat this 3 or 4 times.
- If he doesn't get it for the first few times, don't give up and do not increase the stimulation. Try to work on this a couple of times per day.
- During the training period never give the command if you are not able to enforce it. Your dog has to make the mental connection between the vibration/beep to his behaviour (may take a week or more for some dogs).
Both methods of stopping unwanted behaviour and reinforcing learning behaviours can be applied to nearly every training scenario.
Training collars are used to train the dogs and not for punishment. Use properly and with care and the collar can be a safe and effective tool to train, build communication and strengthen your bond with your best friend.
Remote Signals are Not Detected
- Ensure there are no interferences or obstacles between you and your dog.
- Ensure the remote and the receiver is fully charged.
- Ensure the remote and receiver are not in standby mode.
- Avoid switching modes frequently.
- Press the buttons firmly in the centre.
- Charge the receiver and transmitter fully.
- Ensure all the adjustable modes are set above level 1.
- Check the channel and ensure you are on the same channel as the collar it is paired with.
- Check to see if the metal screw caps are too short; if they are, change them.
- Re-pair the remote and the receiver.
