Good value for your money

Summary:DT Systems Micro-iDT PLUS product is very effective and very easy to use. The instructions are very simple. This is the first time I’ve used a collar so I was really careful that I do it right. I love the vibrating feature! It works great on my dog. I was thankful that this is enough for him coz that meant I wouldn’t have to use the shock on him. Although at first I tried it on him but eventually switched to vibrate mode. The collar fits him perfectly! The price is great. Not as expensive as the other collars but it is as effective as most of the more expensive ones. This is really a bargain. I just think the material of the collar is of lower quality but this is just a slight drawback. As long as the collar is working fine and effective on your dog, this shouldn’t be a big problem.
Pros:Effective, Simple and Easy, Works Great
Cons:Lower Quality
Overall a good collar

Summary:I own a boxer who used to bark a lot. He would bark at just about anything. One night, I had to go out to meet a friend. When I got back home, I was greeted by a frowning neighbor. They were complaining that they couldn’t sleep because of my dog’s barking. That’s when I finally realized I had to do something about this problem. I bought the collar after reading and researching about DT Systems Micro-iDT PLUS. I was happy with its performance. My dog responded to it well. Battery life is good. It lasts long enough for me. The size of the transmitter is also okay. It is very sleek and handy. I haven’t tested its weatherproof feature since we only use it mostly at home. I just have a slight issue on the size of the collar. It’s quite long for my dog so we have to wrap it around him twice. But other than that, this collar is great.
Pros:Best Battery life, Sleek and Handy
Cons:Collar size

Summary:The first month of use was okay. It was working well and our dog was responding to it. After around four weeks of use, the collar suddenly took too long to charge than usual. And during actual use, it seemed to be giving the correction inconsistently. I think there was this time when the correction didn’t push through. I had to nick our dog but I guess he didn’t feel anything because he kept on barking. Then just last week, the remote fell apart. I was sitting on a chair and accidentally dropped it. It wasn’t from a high distance since as I’ve said, I was sitting down. But it broke nevertheless. I spent good money on this so I was expecting it to last longer. I’m buying another brand of collar. This one is cheaply made. The quality is not that good.
Pros:Bad Quality
Battery dies out fast

Summary:If DT Systems Micro-iDT PLUS is fully charged, the collar actually works great. The important thing to note here is the word IF. This collar doesn’t hold charge pretty well. I only use the lower setting and use only the nick. At an average, I only nick my dog 2-6 times per session and that’s only how long the battery lasts. I have to recharge everyday! It is very annoying. The battery on this product is bad – really bad. It’s really disappointing to note that everything else is great. It’s just that the battery is not lasting long enough. And batteries are important. They are the heart of the gadget. How can you make use of all the great features if the battery dies out on you?! Pretty lame, huh? I wouldn’t recommend this product. We are sending it back and looking for another option.
Pros:Great Features
Cons:Bad Battery
Frequently breaks

Summary:I was initially happy with this collar because it was actually very effective on our dog. It helped significantly reduce our dog’s excessive barking and we were able to accomplish that in just a week of training. I continued using it to further train my dog but it stopped working on its second week. I contacted customer support and had it returned. They sent it back after fixing it. I was able to use it for ten days when it stopped working again. I called them up again and said to send it back again to them. This time, the battery was the problem. When I got it back, it was working fine. After a month, the battery was not holding charge well. I’m really getting tired of this. The problems with this collar are endless. I won’t call customer service again. I’m getting a new collar instead.
Cons:Faulty Battery
