Pet parents looking to take their training on-the-go need to look no further than the phone they’re carrying, thanks to the new SMART DOG® Trainer by PetSafe® Brand, a leading innovator in pet behavior and lifestyle solutions.
The PetSafe SMART DOG Trainer allows pet parents to train their dog using a smartphone. Utilizing Bluetooth wireless technology, the PetSafe SMART DOG Trainer app connects an iPhone® or Android™ smartphone to the training collar, providing an easy, convenient way for pet parents to communicate with their pet.

“With behavioral issues being the second most common reason pets are surrendered to shelters, and the industry shifting toward more tech-focused product innovations, we felt like the SMART DOG Trainer was the ideal solution to provide pet parents with a simplified, high-tech way to train their dogs,” said Heather Williams, category manager for PetSafe Training and Bark Control products.
Designed for dogs at least six months old and eight pounds or larger, the PetSafe SMART DOG Trainer can be used to teach basic obedience commands—like sit, stay and recall—or eliminate unwanted behaviors, such as jumping, digging, chasing and trash raiding. Pet parents can select from vibration, tone or 15 adjustable levels of static stimulation to get their dog’s attention from up to 75 yards away.
The SMART DOG Trainer app is compatible with iOS 8 or Android 5 or later, and uses low-energy Bluetooth technology, which doesn’t use cellular data and has a longer range than standard Bluetooth technology. The waterproof training collar is rechargeable, eliminating the need to purchase batteries and making it easier for pet parents to take their training on the go.
The PetSafe SMART DOG Trainer is priced at $79.99 and is available for purchase at PetSafe.net and other select online retailers. The system includes the rechargeable receiver collar on an adjustable nylon strap, charging adaptor, test light tool and quick start guide. The SMART DOG Trainer app can be downloaded for free in the iTunes or Google Play stores.
