Your BigLeash® Remote Trainer provides a 1/2 mile range in optimal conditions.
Range will vary depending on environmental conditions such as terrain, weather,
vegetation, buildings and other obstructions.
For best results, hold the transmitter with the antenna pointed up. Pointing the
antenna at the dog will not increase the range or the signal strength.
3. Training Levels
You can use stimulation, audible or vibration for training as appropriate for
your pet and the situation. The stimulation level for the ‘B’ (Brief) and
‘C’ (Continuous) buttons can be adjusted.
• Level 1 = Lowest stimulation
• Level 15 = Strongest stimulation
Use the ▲ and ▼ buttons to adjust the stimulation level.
The audible and vibration levels are not adjustable.
Finding the Appropriate Training Level
Start at Level 1 and increase the training level until you notice a reaction from
your dog; a quick head shake, looking down, even flicking an ear. You must
be focused on your dog when doing this. When you see the reaction, that is
the level to start training. The appropriate level varies from dog to dog.
✧ We recommend using the lowest effective training level. ✧
0 (zero) = Safety Mode (no stimulation, no audible, no vibration)

5. Collar 1 / Collar 2 Feature
Your transmitter comes set for use with one dog but can easily be programmed
for two dogs.
•
If you are working with two dogs, you will need two receiver collars. See
page 24 for information about adding the second collar.
•
The Collar 1 and Collar 2 buttons allow you to change commands between
the two collars. The transmitter saves the settings for each collar. The
settings change automatically when you switch from Collar 1 to Collar 2.
•
The LCD screen indicates if the transmitter is set to Collar 1 or Collar 2.
6. Training Buttons
Button A
•
Pressing the ‘A’ button sends either an Audible signal
or a vibration signal to the dog’s receiver collar. The
signal continues as long as you press the button (up to
8 seconds.)
Button B
•

Pressing the “C’ button sends a Continuous stimulation as long as you
hold the button down. If the button is not released, the stimulation will
automatically stop after 8 seconds.
To send additional training signals, release the button and press again. Only one
signal can be transmitted at a time.
9
Switching from Audible to Vibration Mode
With the BigLeash®, you have the option of using the “A” Button for either an
Audible signal or a Vibration signal. The mode you select will depend on
your dog and your personal preference.
When working with 2 dogs, the two collars are set independently.
To Switch Between Audible and Vibration:
•
Turn the transmitter and the receiver collar “on”. Set to Collar 1 or Collar 2,
as appropriate.
•
Set the training level to “0”.
•
Hold the “A” button with the training level at “0”.
Continue holding the “A” button. After ~5 seconds, the transmitter will begin
to toggle between Audible (A) and Vibration (V). The mode will display on the
LCD screen.
➜ To set to Audible, release the “A” button while the “A” is displayed.
➜ To set to Vibration, release the “A” button while the“V” is displayed.
•
To test the setting, return the transmitter to any training level (1-15) and
press the “A” button.*
•
The “A” button will remain set to either Audible mode or Vibration mode until
you change it. Collar 1 and Collar 2 are set and changed independently.
Audible and vibration are always the same intensity regardless
of the training level setting, except when set to “0” (no signal).
10
Using the Remote Trainer
Appropriate and Proper Use
Appropriate and proper use is directly related to the success of the training. The
remote trainer should be used to train your dog to avoid unwanted behavior
and to reinforce good behavior.
Setting the Contact Posts
•
There are two sets of contact posts. The contact posts on the receiver will
work for most dogs. The extra set is sized for dogs with thick coats.
•
Correct fit depends on the dog’s size, neck shape, coat and skin sensitivity.
The posts must make contact with the skin to feel the correction. For dogs
with very thick coats, you may need to use the longer contact posts and/or
trim some hair around the contact posts so they make contact with the skin.
Fitting the Receiver Collar
•
Before you begin training, be sure the receiver collar fits properly.
You should be able to place no more than your thumb between
the contact posts and the dog’s neck.
When checking snugness of collar, the dog’s head should be
facing down(sniffing position) as this position is where the
dog’s neck is the smallest.
•
The collar should be worn snugly on your dog’s neck. This is extremely
important! If the collar is too loose, your dog will not receive the signal.
Note: The receiver collar is not designed to be worn for extended periods. Removing the
collar when not in use helps prevent irritation of the dog’s skin.
11
Types of Training Signals
Your BigLeash® trainer allows you to adjust the type, the duration and the level
of the training signal.
•
The “A” button provides either an audible or a vibration signal. The signal
continues (up to 8 seconds) while you press the “A” button.
•
The “B” button provides a brief 1 second stimulation (regardless of how
long you hold the button down.) Press the “B” button repeatedly for a
series of brief stimulations.
•
The “C” button provides a continuous stimulation (up to 8 seconds.) This
allows you to control the duration of the stimulation when the situation calls
for it.
The type of training signal you select depends on the behavior you want to
reinforce and the way your dog responds. The goal is for your dog to learn
that he can avoid the training signal by responding appropriately.
•
In the early stages of training, most dogs learn quickly to respond to the first
or second brief stimulation (button ‘B’). Some dogs may need a few more
brief stimulations (or a higher training level) depending on the dog’s
personality and level of excitement or distraction.
•
In many situations, it is recommended that a brief or continuous correction
be preceded by a short audible or vibration warning. This helps your pet learn
to avoid the stimulation by responding to the audible or vibration signal.
•
For some behaviors - such as chasing or barking - a continuous stimulation
(button ‘C’) of several seconds may initially be needed.
12
Picking the Right Training Level
There are 15 training levels so you can customize your remote trainer for your
dog’s temperament and the type of training you do. Some dogs will learn quickly
with a low training level; others may need higher levels.
•
Start with the lowest level. Before you begin training, test the dog’s
response starting at Level 1. Use the Brief (B) button and watch for a
response indicating mild discomfort (like a quick tug on a leash). The goal is
to get the dogs attention without creating anxiety (which will make it more
difficult for him to learn.) If your dog does not respond at Level 1, increase
the training level one level at a time until you see the response.
•
You may need to adjust the training level while you are using the remote
trainer as the dog’s response may change with excitement or distraction.
Creating the Right Environment
•
Keep the training “positive”. Use lots of praise. Keep the dog’s spirits high.
•
Use a high happy voice for praise. Use a deep, low voice for negative
commands. Use a calm, soothing voice to keep eager, energetic dogs
focused; and enthusiastic praise to keep quiet dogs engaged in the activity.
•
Reward your dog during training with periods of free play and praise.
Your Dog’s Response to Training
All dogs respond differently when they feel the stimulation from the receiver
collar. With some dogs, the response may be very subtle; with others, it may be
more obvious.
Remember that your dog will not automatically understand what to do when he
receives a signal from the remote trainer. For training to be effective, you must
understand how to use the remote trainer appropriately.
13
Training Basics
®
Your BigLeash remote trainer can be used to train your dog in two ways:
1.
To reinforce appropriate behaviors such as “Come”, “Sit”, and “Stay.”
2.
To eliminate inappropriate behaviors such as jumping, digging and
excessive barking.
Consistency and Timing
•
Consistency is critical for successful training.
•
The training signal must occur at the time of the behavior.
If the behavior is not occurring when the training signal occurs, the dog will
not associate the signal with the behavior.
Plan Your Training for Success
•
Begin your training sessions in an open area free from distractions. If the
area is not fenced to contain the dog, use a long rope to keep him from
leaving the area until he consistently responds to your commands.
•
When your dog has learned the commands in the first setting, gradually
increase the level of distractions and continue the training in different
settings. Increase the distractions gradually so your dog continues to
associate the training signal with the behavior, not the distractions.
•
In the early stages, limit specific training sessions to 15-20 minutes but
repeat the training regularly and frequently. Dogs learn by repetition and
reinforcement.
•
Do not make it obvious that you are controlling the training signals or using
the transmitter. You want your dog to associate the sensation of the training
signal with his behavior - - not with you or the remote trainer!
14
Training Methods
There are many training approaches used by professional dog trainers. When
using a remote trainer, some trainers recommend preceeding the training signal
with a voice command and/or audible/vibration warning; others believe that some
behaviors are eliminated more effectively if there is no preceeding verbal
command or audible/vibration warning. Whichever training approach you use, the
key is to be consistent.
Obedience Training Basics
Make sure your dog understands basic commands such as “come”, “sit” and
“stay”. If he understands the command but does not always obey, the remote
trainer can be used to reinforce the appropriate response. If he does not have a
basic understanding of the command, the remote trainer will not be effective.
•
For obedience training, give your verbal command at the same time you
send the signal. Do not wait until after you give the command as the dog may
already be trying to comply by the time you press the button.
•
Begin this type of training with the Continuous button (‘C’). As your dog
begins to understand that the stimulation stops when he responds to the
command, he will respond more quickly. As your dog learns to respond
more quickly, you should begin shortening the type and duration of the
stimulation.
•
When your dog responds almost immediately to your command, begin
using the trainer only if you must repeat the command. At this point, a quick
vibration or audible signal may be all that is needed to reinforce the correct
behavior.
15
Behavior Training Basics
After your dog understands the basic obedience commands, you are ready to
begin more specific behavior training. All of the general and obedience training
basics also apply to behavior training.
General “Avoidance” Training
•
“Avoidance training” is teaching your dog to associate the training signal
with the problem behavior and helping him learn that in order to avoid the
signal he must stop the behavior.
•
The use of a verbal command and/or audible/vibration signal varies with the
situation and the training method. In some situations (such as digging or
jumping up), you may want your dog to associate the behavior only with a
training correction with no verbal command or audible/vibration warning. In
other situations (such as general obedience), a verbal command and/or
audible/vibation warning before the correction is appropriate.
•
When correcting your dog’s behavior, you must take into consideration that
not all activities, such as barking, should be eliminated completely. The
goal of your training should be to control problem behavior rather than to
eliminate normal and acceptable aspects of the same behavior.
•
Remember that your dog will not automatically understand what to do when
he receives a signal from the remote trainer.
•
Do not comfort your dog after sending a training signal.
This Owner’s Guide provides only general training examples for common
behaviors. Advice and assistance from a professional dog trainer familiar with
remote trainers may also be helpful.
16
General Examples of Behavior Training
The following examples offer general approaches for using the remote trainer to
address specific behaviors. Remember, consistency and timing are important!
Barking
•
Barking is a natural part of dog behavior and dogs should be allowed to bark
as a normal part of what they do. Use the BigLeash® only to correct barking
that is excessive.
•
Use a “quiet” or “no barking” command backed up with a training signal
from your remote trainer.
Digging
•
Dogs dig for many reasons; they may be looking for a cool place to lie down
or they may just be bored.
•
To train your dog that digging in certain areas is not acceptable, send a
training signal the moment he starts to dig.
Chasing
•
The most common chasing behavior is chasing cars.
•
Care must be taken when teaching your dog not to chase cars. Be sure that
when you send a training signal your dog is away from the moving vehicle.
•
Generally dogs are excited and distracted when they are chasing something.
Use of the Continuous signal (C button) and possibly an increased training
level may be necessary, especially in the early stages of training.
17
Jumping
•
Dogs generally jump up to get attention. To correct jumping, all members of
the family and all guests need to be consistent when training.
•
When your dog wants to jump up, instruct him to sit instead and then give
him the praise and attention he is looking for.
•
If the remote trainer is needed to correct jumping up on people, use the Brief
(B) button to send a training correction whenever he jumps up. Do not praise
the dog when he gets off.
•
Use the same approach to correct jumping up to steal food from the
counter or the table. If your dog usually does this when you are not in the
room, you may need to leave food on the counter or the table then go where
you can observe the dog but he cannot see you.
Jumping on Furniture
•
You can train your dog to stay off of ALL furniture; or you can limit your
training to specific furniture. Regardless, it is crucial that you are consistent.
Any furniture that is ‘off limits’ should ALWAYS be ‘off limits.’
•
Timing is important. Send a training signal the moment your dog starts to
climb on the furniture.
•
Your dog should associate the act of jumping on the furniture with the
training signal so he will avoid the selected furniture in the future.
•
You can also conditionally train your dog that jumping on furniture uninvited
results in receiving the training signal, while responding to your invitation will
be rewarded with praise. Use a lower training level for conditional training
than you would for “off limits” training.
18
Chewing
•
Chewing is a natural behavior for dogs. As with barking, you must decide
what is acceptable and unacceptable chewing so you can consistently
send the training signals.
•
Teach your dog that there are things he is allowed to chew (special chew
toys, bones, etc.) and things he should not chew (shoes, socks, garden
hoses, etc.). As soon as your dog begins to chew something that he
shouldn’t, send a training signal.
Aggression
•
Dogs chase and engage in aggressive behaviors (such as biting and fighting)
for a variety of reasons that differ from one dog to another.
WARNING
Do not use this product if your dog has a history
of aggressive behavior or could cause harm to itself or others.
We recommend you consult a qualified professional who
has experience working with aggressive dogs.
19
Troubleshooting
The Remote Trainer Does Not Seem To Be Working
•
Check to make sure the batteries in both the transmitter and the
receiver are charged.
•
Check to see that both the transmitter and receiver are turned “on”.
Note: The transmitter and receiver will not turn on when charging.
•
If fully charged but not turning on, press the “A” button on the transmitter
and check the LCD screen. If the transmitter icon displays, follow the
reprogramming instructions on page 24. If the icon does not display, or if
reprogramming does not work, please call Customer Service.
Dog Does Not Seem To Respond
•
Check to see that the collar is snug and that the ends of the contact posts
are touching your dog’s neck.
•
Check the training level. If the level is set to “0” (safety mode) no signal will
be sent to the receiver. If it is on a low setting, try increasing the training level
(gradually). See Training Level instructions on page 6.
•
If your transmitter is programmed for use with 2 dogs, check to see that your
transmitter is set to the correct collar.
The Transmitter Range Is Reduced
•
The range may be affected by variations in terrain, weather, buildings and
other obstructions.
•
For best operation hold the transmitter with the antenna pointed toward the
sky, not towards the dog.
•
Keep your fingers away from the antenna. Touching the antenna will greatly
reduce the range.
20
The Battery Does Not Seem To Charge
•
Be sure the charging plugs are fully and securely inserted.
•
Make sure you are using the battery charger provided with the trainer.
•
If the battery does not hold a charge as long as it used to, it may be time to
replace the battery.
For battery questions or replacement, please contact Customer Service:
(800) 793-3436 x622 M-F, 9am-5pm EST
- or - Email: info@dogwatch.com
No Communication Link
•
The link can usually be restored by turning the system off and then turning it
on again or by plugging-in the transmitter and receiver to charge.
•
Sometimes the transmitter and receiver must be reprogrammed to recognize
each other. See page 24.
Cold Weather Performance
•
All batteries experience a drop in voltage during and may run down more
quickly cold weather.
•
The signal the dog feels from the collar may not be as strong in cold weather.
•
For best results in the cold months, charge and store your remote trainer at
room temperature when not in use.
For other Troubleshooting questions, please visit the website -orcontact Customer Service. (800) 793-3436 x622, M-F 9am-5pm EST.

Programming the Receiver Collar
ADDING A SECOND COLLAR
Your transmitter is pre-set for use with one dog but can easily be programmed
for use with two dogs. Collar 2 has a bright orange collar strap and has a small
“Dog 2” sticker on the back so that you can differentiate Collar 1 from Collar 2.
1.
Before adding Collar 2 to the transmitter, charge it for at least 3 hours.
2.
Make sure the transmitter and both the receivers (Collar 1 and Collar 2)
are turned ‘off’.
3.
With the transmitter and the receivers turned “off”, hold down the ‘A’
button for 10 seconds until the screen on the transmitter turns ‘on’.
4.
Set the TRAINING LEVEL to ‘2’.
5.
Press and hold down the Collar 2 button while turning the new
receiver ‘on’ by aligning the receiver next to the transmitter at the
alignment markers.
6.
Continue to hold the receiver next to the transmitter at the alignment
markers while holding down the Collar 2 button.
7.
You will hear a series of beeps. When the series of beeps stops, move the
receiver away from the transmitter.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant
to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can
be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one of the following measures:
- - Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. - - Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- - Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
- - Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This device complies with Industry Canada regulations.
Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and
maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio
interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically
radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.
This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une
antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Canada.
Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut
choisir le type d'antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.)
ne dépasse pas l'intensité nécessaire à l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante.
Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts
de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) l'appareil ne doit pas produire
de brouillage, et (2) l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le
brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement.
For RF exposure - This portable equipment complies with FCC and Industry Canada RF radiation
exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. To maintain compliance, it must not be
co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
