Every transmitter comes with two dog-capability. Your transmitter is pre-set for use with one dog but can easily be programmed for use with two dogs.
To use the BigLeash Remote Trainer with two dogs, you must have a receiver collar for Dog 2. The receiver collar for Dog 2 comes with a bright orange collar strap so that you can easily differentiate Dog 1 from Dog 2. As a reminder, the receiver for the second dog has a small Dog 2 sticker on the back.
Programming Dog 2 Receiver
- Before adding the second receiver to the transmitter, fully charge it for at least 3 hours.
- Set the correction level on the transmitter to Level “2”.
- Hold down the Dog 2 button.
- Continue to hold down the Dog 2 button while turning the new receiver “on” by aligning the receiver next to the transmitter at the alignment markers.
- Continue to hold the receiver next to the transmitter. You will hear a series of beeps.
- When the series of beeps stops, move the receiver away from the transmitter.
- The second receiver is now programmed to the Dog 2 setting.
Note: To use, each collar must be turned on and off separately using the Dog 1 and the Dog 2 settings.
Using the Remote Trainer with Two Dogs
- The Dog 1 and Dog 2 buttons allow you to change commands between the two collars. The transmitter will store the most recent setting for each collar.
- When working with two dogs, the display on the LCD screen will indicate if the transmitter is set to send the signal to the collar on Dog 1 or Dog 2.
- If you are working with Dog 1 and the Dog 2 icon comes on and starts to flash, your transmitter is telling you to check the Dog 2 channel. It is letting you know that either:
- The Dog 2 battery is low, or
- That Dog 2 has moved out of range.
- When charging both collars at the same time, the receiver battery icon displayed on the transmitter is specific to the collar for which the transmitter is set (Dog 1 or Dog 2).
