Before purchasing, there are specifications on every collar that may help you to avoid misfit.
You may also experience a malfunction. Collars do not work correctly if the fur is thick. Both probes must touch the skin simultaneously to deliver stimulation. Trimming (not shaving) the hair/fur of our pets if it is too much thick, is suggested. However, still, there are cases that trimming does not work that you need to shave completely. If the barrier system is not set to the appropriate mode, the system may also not work.
