    This system worked great at first. However, once the batteries died in both of our dogs’ collars and we had to replace them, neither collar would work at all. Calling Innotek was useless. These collars lasted just over a year and since they were out of warranty the only thing they could do was give us a credit towards the purchase of new collars. They did not care that their product was defective. We will never buy another Innotek product again knowing that once the warranty has expired so does the usefulness of their product.

    It worked – for a while.

    Customer service at Innotek is the pits. I felt like I was bothering in the guy on the phone.

    I had to call because my transmitter stopped working. If you read the warrentee, it is not covered for lightning stikes. One of the first questions is “Could it have taken a lightning strike?” How would I know. The wire is in the ground outside. I guess it could have. Try to prove there was no lightning near by. I realize now it was not engineered to survive any near-by strikes so they will not cover the transmitter.

    When I asked if there was any options, he tried to sell me a $250 dollar system. No offer to fix it or replace it. Price for just the transmitter $60 + S/H. I am now looking for a different brand system for not much more. That way I will get a new transmitter and new collar and, hopefully, a friendly CUSTOMER service..

    Yes, I will avoid this brand.

    We’ve had this product for about 3 years, and absolutely love it. We live on a fairly busy street, and even though we have a fenced in back yard, our schnauser always found a way to get out. We even tried a screw type of stake in the back yard however, within a month, he figured out how to unscrew it from the ground. After that, we used the same steel cable to attach him to the garage, he somehow snapped the cable!

    It was when we went looking for him after the cable snap, that we saw him down the street, crossing the street directly in front of a car! Our hearts both jumped and we decided right then and there that since nothing else had worked, we were going to get an electric fence.

    We went to our local Menards, and found the SD-2000. It was on sale, so we went ahead and got it. Now, don’t let anyone fool you, putting this thing in is no easy chore. It took us a few days to bury the wire for it. However, once that hard work was out of the way, everything else has been great! In less than two weeks of following the instruction DVD, our 2 year old pup was completely trained! He hasn’t tried to leave the yard since!

    Without this product, we feel almost certain that we would have experienced the tragedy of finding our dog in the middle of our street. This is something that no pet owner ever wishes to face, and for that we say THANK YOU! to Innotek.
