PetSafe Dog Training Collar Review


As one of the largest retailers of PetSafe dog training collars within the UK we are writing to review the new PetSafe Venture Training collars.

In many respects the new Venture dog training collars are a large step forward aesthetically from the more conventional black boxy training collars like the old PetSafe 400 remote trainers. If you look at what most manufacturers have produced in the past it has been a black square receiver collar with a black strap and working a black remote handset.

The new PetSafe Venture receiver collars are aesthetically pleasing in a blue translucent casing that is nicely curved to compliment the dogs neck, they certainly look much more comfortable for the dogs to wear. This new exciting lifestyle appearance of the PetSafe Venture training collars has really set them apart and this factor alone has brought much interest from prospective customers. One point to note is that some people who have been a little wary of what others will think when their dog is wearing a static collar have been pleased to purchase a collar that doesn’t really look like a static training collar.

Venture training collars come in two different models the Venture 350 for small dogs up to a weight of 18kg that operate up to a 350 meter range, and the Venture 900 for medium to large dogs for pet dogs over 18kg that works on a distance up to 900 meters. Whilst the technology is the same in both the collars the level of static pulse is understandably lower in the smaller 350 Venture. Both of these Venture collars are able to operate 1 or 2 dogs from the same remote so all you need to do is buy a second receiver collar to turn these into a two dog training system.

Whether you decide to buy a new PetSafe Venture training collar or not we advise that you always set this on the lowest setting and just gradually increase this until you find the right level for your dog. Please bear in mind that all you are trying to do is set this at a level where you interrupt your dogs trail of thought. This is important as these collars need to be used sensitively and in a controlled manner, this way they can be extremely effective as a training aid.

PetSafe Venture trainers are fully waterproof so streams, rivers and lakes are a definite yes for dogs that just love to get wet, with no harmful affects on the collars. They also are mains rechargeable so just charge overnight and you are ready to go.

One very important feature that these Venture collars have is a large red button on the handset, this is a booster button that ramps the level of static by three levels and is ideal in emergencies. If for example you see your dog running towards a busy road you can use this feature to save the dogs life.

So how reliable are these PetSafe Venture collars? We have been selling these now for over six months and they appear to have been very reliable, we have had very few after-sales issues and generally the majority have been very pleased with their performance. Dogs seem to find them very comfortable to wear and their owners have found them effective.
