Love this Wireless Transmitter and works great with more than 1 dog. They stay where you want them to stay and can not venture out of this area. This is a must have if you need to keep you pet contained.Read More
The product advertised said an extra battery module would be included. I did not receive the extra module. Like most people I've not taken the time to follow up as to why it was not included. I'm not sure if it was a mistake in packaging or a calculated omission that will require me to act again.Read More
My parents are in their 80s and I always worry when they take their dog out that they are going to fall or trip over his leash. I also worry about them taking him out in the winter time to go to the bathroom. I was told about this product by a friend at a party. Boy am I so glad I found it. I love it. Chester has not crossed his boundary line once. My parents can now just open the door and let him or or go out and play with him without worrying about tripping over his lead. Great product! Worked for us!Read More
Have a very "hard-headed" little puppy and this was our answer to her getting in the road. Still learning her boundaries, but she IS learning. The instructions and guide to training are well done.Read More
This is the best thing you can buy if you have a dog that does whatever he wants. This keeps my little devil inside the yard, away from the road, and away from the neighbor's dog. It is the absolute best invention ever. I take it with us when we go camping and it works great. I have had this for about 6 months and have just had to change the battery.Read More
Everyone in my family has one of the electric fences for their dogs, so I had to get one for mine as well. We have ours on very low (2) and it only took twice for our puppy to learn not to go outside her area. It is also great as we can take her to play with the other family dogs and just have to reset the collar to their units. It is something that you should have if you have dogs, regardless of the space that you have for them to run. The only downfall is if you have to keep them a specific area because you have to plug in the unit and it goes in an even circle around the unit.Read More
This is a great product. I shopped around for about a week before buying from "O" just to compare. I have made other purchases here as well and always find the best price.Read More
Very very happy with the product! We added a third dog to our family -- 14 week old lab puppy. Starting training right away and worked great! So nice to have the comfort of letting him out and not worrying where he might be. Worked so great we bought a second collar for our 6 year old rottie. She has done fantastic! (Amazing how quickly they catch on!) :) Highly recommend the system! Planning to take it with us to the cottage. Very portable! Only bummer -- Overstock's ad said Extra battery module. Not so - not included :( That's why the 4 star rating (not due to the actual system) -- otherwise it would have been a 5 star.Read More

Best Cell Phone Features
With the bevy of options and features now available in cell phones, it's easy to find one perfect for you. Before you begin searching for your next cell phone, take the time to think about what you need your phone to do. Below, you'll learn the best cell phone features. Camera: Cell phone cameras can be quite handy when you happen upon a special moment without a regular digital camera on hand. Most camera phones don't take very high-resolution (usually 1.3 megapixel) pictures, but there are some that top out over 3 megapixels. Some cell phone cameras even have small flashes. If you want a camera phone, find out if it comes with the cable and software to connect to your computer, so you don't have to spend extra for a separate program. Video: Usually, camera phones that play video will also record video. Some non-camera cell phones also play video. Look to see if you can transfer movies from your phone to your computer. Web browsing: Many cell phones let you connect to the Internet. Most use Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), which allows the phone to connect to pages specifically designed for cell phones. There are many phones with full browsers, however, that allow you to view regular Web pages. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to transfer data wirelessly between devices. Wireless cell phone headsets use this technology, and it can also be used to transfer pictures, ringtones and other data between two cell phones or between cell phones and computers. Games: There are cell phones out there that have been designed with the gamer in mind, allowing you to download games that would compare to those found on a personal gaming system. Office software: Most cell phones feature some sort of a calendar and alarm. You can set a wake-up alarm or you can make it alert you for your next appointment. Other phones allow you to make notes for each appointment. Some let you create documents that can be transferred to your computer's word processor or spreadsheet. MP3 player: More and more cell phones are also MP3 players. Check to see if you need special headphones for listening (and if they're included), and pay attention to the phone's memory capacity. Memory expansion: Some phones, usually video or MP3 player phones, feature memory card slots, so you can save pictures, music or other files on removable flash memory. Voice dialing: If you absolutely have to use your cell phone while driving, you'll want one with voice dialing. The phone recognizes the contact you speak and places the call, allowing you to keep your eyes where they belong: on the road. Buy Cell Phones Back to Guides Directory Buy Cell Phones
