E-Collar Winter Battery Maintenance Tips
As a dog owner, you rely on your e-collar to train and protect your furry companion. However, a failing battery can quickly put your dog's safety at risk. During the winter months, the colder temperatures can impact your e-collar's battery, causing it to fail or perform poorly. Here are the signs that your e-collar battery needs maintenance:
- Batteries are running down much quicker
- The receiver or transmitter stops responding even though it is not due time for a charge
- Stimulation is intermittent or inaccurate
- Range drastically affected
- Units shut off unexpectedly.
If you see some of the signs above, please try the following before calling our Stand-by Customer Service Representatives:
- When using units in freezing or below-freezing temperatures for long periods of time, please protect your transmitter from the cold by keeping it in your jacket or vest.
- Charge the units more frequently and make sure to do so for the full charging time recommended in your owners manual prior to use
- When charging, make sure to charge the unit at room temperature and check for any water or moisture gathered inside the charging port; dry if needed.
- Do not store or leave overnight your units in cold conditions, such as unheated garages, sheds, or vehicles.
- If your unit has batteries older than 2~3 years, replacement of the batteries can eliminate some of these problems also.
In conclusion, properly maintaining your Dogtra collar's battery is crucial to ensuring its optimal performance and your dog's safety.
