How to Add a Second Remote Collar

Every BigLeash 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.

Using the Remote Trainer with Two Dogs

To use the BigLeash Remote Trainer with two dogs, you must have a receiver collar for the second dog (Collar 2). The collar for the second dog can be purchased from your local Dealer or from the online store.

Before using Collar 2 for the first time, it must be programmed to communicate with the transmitter (see programming instructions below).

Programming the Collar 2 Receiver

(Also referred to as “marrying” the transmitter and the receiver.)

  • Step 1: Before adding Collar 2 to the transmitter, charge it for at least 3 hours.
  • Step 2: Make sure both the transmitter and the receiver are turned ‘off’.
  • Step 3: With the transmitter and the receiver turned “off”:
    • S-15 Remote Trainer: hold down the ‘A’ button for 10 seconds until the screen on the transmitter turns ‘on’.
    • V-10 Vibration Trainer: hold down the ((V)) button for 10 seconds until the screen on the transmitter turns ‘on’
  • Step 4: Set the Training Level to ‘2’.
  • Step 5: Hold down the Collar 2 button while turning ‘on’ the new receiver by aligning the receiver next to the transmitter at the alignment markers.
  • Step 6: Continue to hold the receiver next to the transmitter. You will hear a series of beeps.
  • Step 7: When the series of beeps stops, move the receiver away from the transmitter.
  • Step 8: The second receiver is now programmed to the Collar 2 setting.
  • Step 9: Turn the transmitter and receiver “on” in the usual way to use.

After programming Collar 2 to communicate with the transmitter:

  • Press the collar 1 button on the transmitter and then select the appropriate training level for the dog wearing Collar 1. Press the collar 2 button and then select the appropriate training level for the dog wearing Collar 2. The transmitter will store the most recent settings for each collar.
  • Use the Collar 1 and Collar 2 buttons to select which collar you want to receive the signal. You can switch from one collar to the other as needed.
  • The display on the LCD screen will indicate if the transmitter is set to send the signal to Collar 1 or Collar 2.
  • Collar 2 comes with a bright orange collar strap so that you can easily differentiate Collar 1 from Collar 2.

Programming the Collar 1 Receiver

If you ever need to “re-marry” Collar 1 to the transmitter, follow the same steps as Programming the Collar 2 Receiver, except:

  • Step 4: Set the Training Level to ‘1’.
  • Step 5: Instead of holding down the Collar 2 button
    • S-15 Remote Trainer: hold down the ‘A’ button while turning ‘on’ the receiver.
    • V-10 Vibration Trainer: hold down the ((V)) while turning ‘on’ the receiver.
