Most customers choose the Innotek IUC-4100 system because it is an extremely reliable system . The collar is comfortable and an appropriate size – not too big and cumbersome. It uses rechargeable batteries, and its feature list includes the ability to let you know that collar has been fitted to your dog properly.
The 4100 collar is actually lighter and smaller than many other full sized collars. It fits comfortably aroudnd your dog’s neck, and doesn’t have any controls on it. This means that the collar is waterproof and will last a long time. The collar is well suited to dogs that are heavier than 12 pounds. Smaller dogs benefit more from the PetSafe Little Dog system.
Another advantage of the Innotek IUC-4100 system is that the collar is rechargeable. It recharges very quickly, and is ready to use again in less than 2 hours. When it is completely charged, you don’t need to recharge it for around 1 month, and the fact that it uses rechargeable batteries will save you money. The collars have been known to work for at least 5 years.
Any collar won’t do its job if it isn’t fitted properly, and this is where the Innotek IUC-4100 system comes into its own. It can be difficult for a collar to be effective on a dog with a long coat, and in fact one reason your dog may not respond to a collar is that it is a poor fit and the prongs don’t actually contact his skin. This Innotek collar will beep when it is correctly fitted, so you have no doubt that it is going to do its job
As already mentioned, you won’t find any controls on the collar itself. All controls can be found in the control box. This has advantages and disadvantages. It means that the collar is often more durable, but it also means that all dogs who are controlled by this system have to have the same settings. This isn’t a problem if your dogs are similar in size, but if you have a German Shepherd dog, and a Shih Tzu, for example, you’re going to run into problems.
The transmitter box has several basic controls. The boundary width adjustment knob will determine how close your dog can get to your boundary wire. You can also set the correction strength, and the strength will increase as your dog gets closer to your boundary wire. You can also alter the field size, so you can install this unit on properties of up to 25 acres. Lastly, there is a battery backup facility, so you can instal some AA batteries to keep the collar working in case of power failure.
The Innotek 4100 is very flexible. As well as being very effective as a boundary fence, it can also be used inside your home to keep you dog off the couch, or out of a specific area of your home. It can also be used to protect smaller areas of your yard, such as a fishpond, from being investigated by your dog.
The Innotek 4100 system is versatile, effective and reliable. It does have limitations, for example if you have small dogs, or if you have dogs that are quite different in size. Hoever, for most people, its fitted collar and rechargeable batteries, and its flexibility to be able to be used indoors and out makes it an ideal choice for most people.
