NOTE
Rechargeable batteries typically last about 1-3 years on
average depending on use and care. Keep batteries away
from flammable substances. See page 17 for more information on battery maintenance.
11
BATTERY SAVING MODE
The Battery Saving Mode will reduce battery consumption in
the Collar Receiver and increase battery life. In the Battery
Saving Mode, the Collar Receiver battery can last up to
approximately 30% longer.*
*These figures are estimates and vary depending on numerous factors
such as number and length of beeps/stimulations, intensity level setting,
distance, weather, storage, battery brand and age, etc.
Switching from Regular to Battery Saving Mode:
1. Turn ON the Collar Receiver.
2. Select ‘M’ on the Intensity Dial.
3. Press the ‘Beep’ button to activate the
Battery Saving Mode. The LED Light
on the Collar Receiver will start to
double-flash.

single flash.
5. After you have selected the desired mode, return the
Intensity Dial to your normal setting (see page 16).
IMPORTANT NOTE:
In the Battery Saving Mode, there may be a slight 0.5 to 1
second delay in the Collar Receiver’s response to the
Transmitter. Pressing and releasing the button too quickly
in the Battery Saving Mode may not result in the desired
correction from the Collar Receiver. You may need to
press and hold the ‘Beep’ or ‘Cont.’ button and watch your
dog for a reaction before you release the button. For a
more instantaneous response, use your collar system in the
regular battery mode.
12
TESTING
NOTE: Turn the Collar Receiver ON for Testing
To Test the Electronic Stimulation:
1. Place the tester firmly on the contacts of
the Collar Receiver.
2. Set the intensity (note - an intensity level
setting of 4 or less might not be enough to
light the tester).
3. Push the ‘Cont.’ button.
4. The tester light will light repeatedly when the
Continuous Stimulation button is pushed (the test light
will be brighter at higher intensity levels).
To Test the Beep:
1. Press the ‘Beep’ button.
2. An audible beep will be emitted any time the button is
pressed.
NOTE: If the Collar Receiver is not responding to any signals from the Transmitter, the Collar Receiver may need to
be reprogrammed to the Transmitter (see page 14).
*Charging Error - If the SmartLED has a long blink every
other second while charging, the rechargeable battery pack
will need to be replaced. Contact D.T. Systems if the
problem persists after a few charging sessions.
13
REPROGRAMMING
If your current Collar Receiver is not responding to the
Transmitter, it may need to be reprogrammed to the
Transmitter.
1. Hold the Magnet Indicator (Red Mark) on the
Transmitter directly against the Magnetic Switch
Indicator (Red Mark) on the side of the Collar
Receiver.
2. The LED Light inside the Collar Receiver will light
up solid for about 1 second followed by 6 flashes. You
must keep the Transmitter next to the Collar Receiver
during this time.
3. Continue to hold the Transmitter against the Collar
Receiver until the LED Light stays on solid. The Collar
Receiver is now in the Code Running Mode (the LED
light will stay lit for approximately 8 seconds while it is
in this mode).
4. Remove the Transmitter from the Collar Receiver
and press the ’Cont.’ and ’Beep’ buttons
simultaneously while it is in the Code Running Mode.
5. When the LED light blinks 3 times, the Collar ID is
now programmed and the Collar Receiver is now ON.
NOTE – Do not remove the Red Mark on the
Transmitter from the Red Mark on the Collar Receiver
until after the LED light stops flashing and stays on
solid or the Collar Receiver will not go into the Code
Running Mode. You must press the ’Cont.’ and ‘Beep’
buttons simultaneously while the LED light is lit solid.
14
PROPERLY FITTING THE COLLAR
NOTE: Proper collar tightness and
position are very important to ensure
safe and consistent collar use.
All electronic collars need to be
very snug around the dog’s neck to
work properly. They must be just
tight enough to allow the “contacts”
or electrodes to make good contact
on your dog’s skin. If the collar is too loose, the
stimulation may not work properly because good/
consistent skin contact is not being achieved. This
can directly affect the performance of the collar unit
and whether or not the dog will receive the stimulation.
Always check for good contact to the skin if it appears
that your dog is not responding to the stimulation.
Also, a loose collar can also result in skin irritations
from the contacts moving or rubbing too much against
your dog’s neck while they are running or training. A
proper fit will help prevent this from occurring.
 Place the collar unit high (closer to your dog’s head)
and tight on your dog’s neck with the collar receiver
box centered below the chin. Placing it at the wider
base of the neck can let it travel up to the narrower
part of the neck while your dog is moving, loosening
as it goes.
 The collar should be tight enough to fit two fingers
between the collar belt and your dog’s neck, but not
tight enough to restrict your dog’s breathing.
15
SETTING THE INTENSITY LEVEL
It is very important to set the correct intensity level on
your PA 300 Training System before beginning your
training sessions to provide the proper level of
stimulation without over-stimulating your dog.
1. Place the Intensity Selection dial so that the system
is set on Level 1.
2. Turn on the Collar Receiver and then fit it properly
around your dog’s neck.
3. Press the ‘Cont.’ button and check for a reaction.
Indications of your dog feeling the stimulation
include outward signs of discomfort or confusion on
it’s face, ears perking up, changes in tail
movements, etc.
4. If there are no signs of your dog feeling the
stimulation, increase the Intensity Level in
increments of one until your dog reacts to the
stimulation.
5. At this point, increase the Intensity Level by one or
two. This should be your dog’s ideal training level.
NOTE
Some dogs may require more or less stimulation depending
upon their individual temperament and/or size.
16
MAINTENANCE
It is very important to periodically clean your PetPal
CC360 system for maximum performance. Regular
cleaning will also lengthen the life of your unit.
PetPal CC360 collar box with lukewarm
water and a mild anti-bacterial soap.
 Take care to thoroughly clean the space between
the Contacts and the Collar Belt.
 The belt and buckle should be cleaned with water
and a mild soap and then allowed to dry completely.
 Always allow the entire unit to completely dry before
using.
 Clean the
NOTE
It is recommended that the collar unit be rinsed with fresh,
clean water after use in wet conditions, especially in salt
water.
To get the maximum performance and life out of your
batteries:
 Do not store your unit in extremely hot or cold
conditions.
 Store your unit in a dry environment.
 Remove the batteries when storing your unit for
extended periods of time.
17
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES
 Before 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 is a
very slight possibility that your dog may receive an
unintentional electric stimulation.
 Your CC360 training collar is 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 contacts (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 irritations, 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.
