Dogs should be in good health during any e-collar training. Dogtra e-collars are not intended for use on dogs weighing less than 10 pounds or under 6 months of age.
Skin irritation can occur from prolonged wearing of the stainless steel contact points on the training collar. Most dogs will exhibit some type of irritation (pressure necrosis) from prolonged contact of stainless steel contact points. This is why it states in your owner's manual:
Avoid having the dog wear the collar with the contact points in the same place for more than two hours at a time. Leaving the contact points on the same spot for an extended period of time can cause skin irritation. If the dog is to wear the e-collar for long periods, occasionally reposition the collar so that the contact points are moved to a different spot on the dog's neck.
Dogtra e-collars are intended for the sole purpose of behavior modification of dogs. They are not intended for human use or use on other animals. Dogtra Company does not assume any liability for improper use of the Dogtra e-collar.
Dogtra does not recommend using the e-collar to correct dogs that are aggressive towards other dogs or people. In many such cases the dog will associate the stimulation with the other dog or individual and become even more aggressive. Dog aggression is best treated by a dog training specialist.
Dogtra's industry-leading technology filtering system ensures minimal interference with other electronic devices (cellular phones, security systems, etc.). Our digital microprocessor offers thousands of unique codes to eliminate frequency match-up with other Dogtra e-collars.
