Charging the Handheld Device

NOTICE

To prevent corrosion, thoroughly dry the USB port, the weather cap, and the surrounding area before charging or connecting to a computer.

You should fully charge the battery before you use the device for

the first time or whenever the battery is low (

Checking the

Battery Level of the Dog Collar Device

, page 5

). It is normal for the battery to discharge in approximately 1 year when the device is not in use. Charging a fully depleted battery takes about 2 hours.

NOTE:

The device is fully functional while charging when using an AC power adapter. The device will not charge when it is

outside the charging temperature range (

Acquiring Satellite Signals

Both the dog collar device and the handheld device must acquire satellite signals before you put the dog collar device on your dog. Acquiring satellite signals can take a few minutes.

Go outdoors to an open area.

Turn on both devices (

Turning On the Device

, page 2

).

3

On the handheld device, select a paired collar with the toggle switch.

When the dog collar device has acquired satellite signals, the status LED flashes a double-blink or triple-blink in green. When the handheld device has acquired satellite signals and communicated with a paired dog collar device, it displays status information for the dog collar device (

Handheld Device Screen

, page 1 ).

Dog Collar Device

You can use up to 3 dog collar devices with a single handheld device.

Each dog collar device must be paired with the handheld device before it can be used. During the pairing process, each dog collar device is associated with a different color on the handheld device.

If the dog collar device is on, turn it off (

Turning Off the

Device

, page 2 ).

Hold the power key on the dog collar device until it emits two series of beeps (about 2 seconds), and then release the power key.

The status LED flashes green rapidly. You can now pair the dog collar device with the handheld device.

The handheld device vibrates and a check mark appears on the screen when the devices have paired successfully.

TIP:

You must obtain GPS signals on both devices before the handheld device displays the dog collar device battery status, distance, and direction (

Acquiring Satellite Signals

, page 2 ).

Selecting a Dog Collar Device

Before you can select and control a dog collar device, you must

pair the dog collar device with the handheld device (

Pairing a

Dog Collar Device with the Handheld Device

, page 2 ).

Move the dog collar device toggle switch to select the color associated with a dog collar device.

The training keys control the dog collar device associated with the selected color.

Fitting the Collar on Your Dog

CAUTION

To prevent irritation from the contact points, remove the collar for at least eight hours out of every 24-hour period.

This device is not intended for human use. Do not attempt to use on any person.

Do not spray the device or collar with harsh chemicals including but not limited to flea or tick spray. Always ensure that any flea or tick spray that is applied to the dog is completely dry before

2 Getting Started

placing the collar on the dog. Small amounts of harsh chemicals can damage the plastic components and collar laminate.

In order to properly correct the dog, the collar and device must fit the dog properly. If the collar is too loose or positioned incorrectly, corrections may be inconsistent. This can delay or prevent successful training.

1

2

Position the device at the front of the dog's neck, with the status LED facing toward the dog's chin and the contact points against the throat.

Tighten the strap so that it is very snug around the dog's neck, and fasten the buckle.

NOTE:

The collar should fit tightly and should not be able to rotate or slide on the dog's neck. The dog must be able to swallow food and water normally. You should observe your dog's behavior to verify the collar is not too tight.

3

4

Wiggle the device to work the contact points through the dog's coat.

NOTE:

The contact points must have contact with the dog's skin to be effective.

If the strap is too long, cut off the excess, leaving at least 8 cm (3 in.) to spare.

TIP:

You can mark the hole used to fasten the buckle for future reference.

Communication with the Collar

You should keep an unobstructed line of sight between your handheld device and the dog collar device to produce the best communication signal. To achieve the best line-of-sight conditions, you should move to the highest elevation point in your area (for example, on the top of a hill).

Best

Good

Poor

Dog Training

You should research and investigate the training methods best suited for you, your dog, and your needs.

When used properly, the Pro 550 Plus training system is an effective training tool to aid your dog in reaching its full potential.

The use of the training system should be part of an overall training program.

Dog Training

MURS Radio Interference

If your handheld device experiences interference from another transmitter, the LED flashes yellow when you press a training key.

TIP:

If you often experience interference, re-pairing a dog collar device to the color it is already assigned to may resolve the problem. Re-pairing changes the frequency used by the handheld device to communicate with the dog collar device.

Selecting and Installing the Contact Points

For best results, select the correct contact points based on your dog's coat.

1

Select the correct contact point length for your dog's coat type:

• For dogs with thicker coats, use the longer contact points.

• For dogs with shorter coats, use the shorter contact points.

2

3

4

If necessary, use the included wrench to remove the contact points.

Twist the contact points into the collar.

Tighten with the included wrench, but do not overtighten.

When you put the collar on the dog, make sure the contact points are tight against the neck.

1

2

Removing the Contact Points

When you are not training the dog using the training keys, remove the contact points.

Use the included wrench to remove both contact points.

Place the cap over the contact point holes.

Training Methods

Momentary stimulation

: Applies a brief stimulation when you press the training key, regardless of how long the key is depressed.

Continuous stimulation

: Applies stimulation to the dog the entire time you press the training key, for a maximum of 10 seconds. Your stimulations should typically be much shorter than 10 seconds.

Tone

: Activates an audible tone instead of stimulation. A tone can be used as either a positive or negative training cue, depending on your training program.

Vibration

: Applies vibration instead of stimulation to the dog the entire time you press the training key, for a maximum of 10 seconds. The effectiveness of vibration may vary based on the dog's temperament and experience.

Intensity Levels

The Pro 550 Plus system provides 6 stimulation intensity levels, which increase sequentially from 1 to 6. Within each intensity level, you can select low, medium, and high stimulation using

the training keys (

Training Key Functions

, page 4 ).

2

3

Choosing the Correct Intensity Level

1

Set the intensity to the lowest level (

Changing the Intensity

Level

, page 4 ).

Select a training key.

Observe the dog for a reaction, such as a head shake, neck movement, or just a change in expression.

Sometimes dogs will vocalize due to the surprise of the electrical stimulation. If the dog vocalizes more than once, the intensity level is too high for beginning training.

4

If there is no reaction, increase the intensity level by one level until the dog has a slight but recognizable reaction to the stimulation.

The intensity level that causes a slight but recognizable reaction is your dog's baseline level for beginning collar training. You do

3

4 not need to, and should not, apply this intensity selection test again.

After you begin training, the dog’s performance guides your intensity selection. As the dog advances in training, you may need to change the level depending upon the training situation.

Changing the Intensity Level

You can select a different intensity level for each dog collar device.

1

2

Select a dog collar device (

Selecting a Dog Collar Device

, page 2 ).

Adjust the dial to increase or decrease the intensity level.

Training Key Functions

The Pro 550 Plus system provides several training modes, which assign different combinations of momentary stimulation, continuous stimulation, and tone to the training keys. The three vertical letters next to the mode toggle switch correspond to the training key functions, from top to bottom.
