COLLAR FOR PROPER FIT
I
Proper collar tightness and position
are very important to insure safety
and correct functioning every time
you use the collar.
All electronic collars need to bf
very snug to work properly
electrodes to make good skir
contact.
If your collar is too loose, the stimulation may not
work properly because good skin contact is not
being achieved.
This can directly affect the
stimulation performance and whether or not the dog
will receive the stimulation. Always check for good
"prong" contact if it appears that your dog is not
responding to the stimulation.
A loose collar can promote skin irritation from
moving or rubbing too much on a dog's neck while
they are running or training. The proper snug fit will
help prevent this from occurring.
Proper fit of the collar is important. It should be tight
enough on the dog's neck to make good skin
contact and allow the dog to breath normally. The
collar should never be so tight on the dog's neck
that it restricts the dog's normal breathing pattern.
For proper positioning of your collar receiver box, it
should be placed on the center of the dog's neck.

i
lntensitv Selection Dial
he intensity selection dial allows
-3u to choose between sixteen
fferent levels of stimulation,
lowing for very precise control.
TRAINING INTENSITY LEVEL
The first and most important step in training your dog
with your EZT Training System is determining the
correct lntensity Level to provide the proper training
stimulation without over-shocking your dog.
To do this place the Collar on the dog's neck and turn
it on. Place the lntensity Selection dial so that the
System is set on Level One. Press either the 'NICK'
or the 'STIMU' Button. Increase the lntensity Level in
increments of one until the dog is feeling the
stimulation. You should be able to tell when the dog is
feeling the shock by the outward signs of discomfort or
confusion on it's face. At this point, increase the
lntensity Level by one or two. This should be your
dog's ideal training level. (Note: Some dog's may
require more or less stimulation depending upon their
individual nature or size.)
Transmitter Indicator Light
When one of the push button switches on the
transmitter are pushed, the RED light will turn on to
indicate that the transmitter is being operated. When
the battery needs charging the RED light will blink
once every 112 second while pushing a button. ,
Transmitter Antenna
Be very careful when screwing the 4" antenna into the
transmitter. Hand tighten only. Over tightening could
cause damage to the antenna or the antenna mount.
Remote Training ~ u t t o n s
Pressing the upper button causes the collar to
administer a Momentary Stimulation or 'Nick'.
Pressing the lower button gives the Continuous
Stimulation.
Locate and RunlPoint Buttons
Pressing the 'Locate' button on the left side of the
Transmitter will make the Collar Receiver beep.
Pressing the 'RunlPoint' button on the right side of the
Transmitter will activate the RunlPoint mode on the
Collar Receiver. Press it again and it will go into the
Point only mode. Press the 'Locate' button to cancel
the RunlPoint modes.
Two Don Model Selection Switch
(EZT plus 5002)
Switching between units can be controlled by moving
the toggle selection switch to the desired unit.
Batterv Chargincl Receptacles
The battery charging receptacle is located on the side
of the Transmitter, and on the side of the Collar
Receiver facing the dog's neck. After charging,
always close the jack with the rubber plug to prevent
foreign particles from getting inside the unit.
Collar Indicator Light
When the Collar Receiver is turned on, the RED light
will flash steadily once every two seconds to indicate
that the unit is active. The RED light changes to a
rapid flash (twice per second) when the battery is low
and in need of charging.
Electrodes
Electrodes should fit snugly on the dog's neck to
ensure good contact with the skin.
For more
information on the proper fit of the collar, see page 7.
Beeper Horn
The Beeper horn is attached to the collar belt. It will
emit a loud tone audible from up to 450 yards away.
Collar Belt with Embedded Receiver Antenna
The embedded collar antenna is woven into the collar
belt, and runs the along the entire length of the belt.
Do not cut the collar belt.
Doing so will damage the antenna and may result in
All EZT plus Super ~ r a i n e rcollars
~ ~ are equipped
with rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
batteries. NiMH batteries are not memory sensitive
and do not require depletion before recharging.
The batteries come partially charged from the factory.
However, it is recommended that you give the battery
a full charge (about 12 hours) before the first use.
Remember - Always keep batteries away from
flammable substances (especially when charging).
When storing the unit for long periods remember to
regularly give the batteries a full charge (12 hours)
once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Battery Charainn Procedure
1. Turn the unit off.
2. Plug the charger into a
standard electrical outlet.
3. Charge the batteries for up
to 12 hours. This can be
done either separately or
simultaneously.
4. After charging, disconnect the battery charging
cables from the receptacles and securely replace
the rubber battery receptacle covers.
5.Test the system to make sure that everything is
working properly.
Before testing, make sure that both units are fully
charged and the power to the Collar Receiver is "ON".
To Test the Electronic Stimulation:
A) Place the tester firmly on the
electrodes of the Collar Receiver.
B) Set the intensity (note - an intensity
level setting of 4 or less might not be
enough to light the tester).
C) Push either the 'NICK' or 'STIMU'
button.
D) The tester light will quickly flash for the Nick
function and light steadily when the Constant
Stimulation is pushed (the higher the intensity, the
brighter the test light).
To Test the Beeper:
A) Press the button located on the left side of the
transmitter (Locate button). The collar should
beep any time this button is pressed.
B) Press the button on the right side of the transmitter
(RunIPoint button) to activate the RunIPoint Mode.
Press the button again to change to Point only
mode. In the RunIPoint mode, the collar should
beep every 4-5 seconds while your dog is on the
run, and every 1-2 seconds when your dog is on
point. In the Point only mode, the collar will beep
only when your dog is on point. You can shake
the collar to simulate your dog on the run. Press
the 'Locate' button to cancel these modes.
Before beginning training your dog should be
examined by a veterinarian to assure that your dog
is in good health.
Never leave your dog unattended with the unit
on.
- Since no electronic device is perfect, there iq a
very slight possibility that your dog may receive an
unintentional electric stimulation.
Your EZT plus Super ~ r a i n e ris~ a
~ very
valuable tool if used correctly. It is extremely
important that you completely understand all the
functions of the collar and how to properly train with
it before placing it on your dog.
The electrodes on this collar are made with high
grade stainless steel to help prevent any chemical
or allergic reactions with your dog's skin.
To prevent neck irritation, the collar should
never be worn for more than 12 hours a day.
Changing the collar location on the dog's neck
daily will also help prevent irritations. It is
important to keep the collar clean. Clean the
electrodes regularly with a mild anti-bacterial soap.
If an irritation is found, carefully wash the dog's neck
with soap and water and then wipe the area with
Hydrogen peroxide. Dry thoroughly and apply an
antibiotic ointment.
