  • Make sure the collar receiver has been turned on.

  • Verify that the collar is delivering stimulation by using the test light on the collar receiver.
  • If on a low intensity level, a small increment may be necessary.
  • Make sure the contact points are snug and touching the dog’s skin directly.
  • If the range is impacted, perhaps the terrain has changed.
