Q. How does ZONES work?
A. The base unit or transmitter sends a radio signal to a receiver
that the dog wears on a collar. When the collar approaches the
transmitter, the collar gives a brief warning tone and a non-harmful
tingle that startles the dog. The startle response deters your pet
from entering the specified area. Veterinarians and professional
dog trainers recommend INNOTEK Zones for pet proofing
Q. Will the tingle hurt my dog? Is the stimulation painful?
A. The non-harmful stimulation is an unpleasant tingle that is
startling, but never painful. In most cases, the dog simply
moves on to another area. The tingle then stops, as a positive
reinforcement. Think of it like a dog moving out of the hot sun
to a shady area. The dog will seek a space thatís more
Q. Whatís included with ZONES?
A. Your ZONES product includes the ZONES barrier trans-
mitter, which is fully adjustable; a ZONES receiver on a collar
strap, full instructions and an informational DVD. The system
includes a collar battery, but you need to furnish 3 AA batteries
for the transmitter.
Q. Will the collar work on my small dog?
A. The receiver part of the collar is about 2-inches wide and
should work on most small neck sizes. The receiver is so
lightweight, about the same weight as two golf balls.
Q. Will the receiver box fit on my dogís existing collar?
A. Use of other collars is not recommended. The product
comes with its own fully adjustable nylon strap collar.
Q. What type of signal does the transmitter put out?
A. It puts out a spherical radio signal that activates the training
collar. The radio signal keeps the dog from going near the
transmitter; underneath it, or going over it.
Q. What is the minimum and maximum range the
transmitter can put out?
A. It will put out a minimum of a 1-foot radius up to a maximum
6-foot of radius.

Q. Can I put the Zones barrier transmitter outdoors?
