Leia is a little over a year old. We love her to pieces but there are times when we need her to behave a little more. We did a professional puppy training class which we loved. Leia’s behavior was like night and day. However, we are still training her with the biggest problem being jumping on people. We have tried quite a few different ways to train her. Finally our dog trainer suggested puppy training with a Petrainer Collar. As a Chewy Influencer, I received a Petrainer Collar to review. All opinions are my own.

Puppy Training with a Petrainer Collar: Best Practices
First things first, never leave the collar on for more than 12 hours a day. For us we found it was best to put the collar on when we knew we might need to do some training. We put it on before we head to the bus stop in the morning and before going to the dog park. The other big aspect of training we are doing is getting Leia to come back to us when we call her. While she does it when she’s on a leash, at the dog park, I just don’t want to chase her anymore.
Puppy Training with a Petrainer Collar: Results
The very first day that we put the collar on Leia we saw changes. I put it on her as we went to the dog park. We had a time frame we needed to leave and I didn’t want to have to chase her to get to her in order to leave on time. When it was time to leave, Leia was in the middle of a dog pile. No literally there was a pile of dogs that she was in the middle of. I pressed the button for the audible mode. This sends just a small beep through the collar and yelled Leia come. She immediately stopped playing and moved away from the pile. While she didn’t come to me, she did immediately go to one of the kids. We had the same experience when we went to the bus stop. The first time she jumped on one of the kids I said no. The second time I pressed the button for the audible beep. She immediately stopped and sat like she’s supposed to. Its a work in progress but one I love. I don’t love the actual shock portion of the collar and will probably never use it but the vibration and beep are perfect enough to get Leia’s attention.
