To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am so glad I found this collar, it worked on my dogs immediately and I got shocked myself and it wasn’t bad, just a quick correction. The only issue I have is it can move easily away from the dogs vocal chords so it has to be fitted properly to stay in place. I actually bought a second one after the first because I liked it so much.

If you love your pet and value their health, please read this review:
I got these and was happy to see them individually wrapped. They look the same as the originals, however, I used one in my scheduled maintenance and cleaning of our petsafe drinkwell 360 stainless steel fountain and was horrified to see what I’ve been feeding my pets.
As with any carbon filter for drinking water, aquariums, etc. I rinsed thoroughly in advance of installing with our clean filtered tap water. After a few hours of use I noticed white debris and bugs floating in the water. I presumed it was from our dog being a messy drinker and debris deposited from facial hair, so I re-cleaned everything including filters and replaced. Same thing happened.
I opened another new filter and repeated the cleaning before use Protocol, as well as thoroughly scrubbing the stainless steel 360 pet safe fountain. A hot soapy water scrub of hardware, filters and pump scrubbed with brushes, and the new filter rinsed thoroughly in clean filtered water. An hour later, bugs and white crap floating again.
I removed the filter and put it in a clean glass with clean filtered water and waited, sure enough, the water soon had things floating in it. So I broke open the white plastic casing to examine the contents, pouring some of the charcoal into another new clean glass with clean water, and the other onto the cupboard to sift through.
I gave the charcoal pebbles on the bottom of the glass a stir and it was a tornado of debris. While examining the little pebbles of charcoal on the counter, I watched a bug crawl out.
Lesson learned. I will only buy the Pet Safe brand filters as these must have been manufactured in China. I’m heartbroken to think I inadvertently fed dirty water to pets, both have experienced uncharacteristic diarrhea and vomiting lately.
Before writing this review I attempted to contact the seller and advise, hoping it was an anomaly and they’d make it right. No luck, no correspondence, no refunds. So please, pay the extra, don’t make your four-legged friends sick. :(
These are fantastic and such a great deal. Having such a large quantity on hand is fantastic for remembering to clean and swap out the filters. I have 3 dogs so I’m constantly filling the fountain 2-4 times a day. That’s a lot of doggy drool going through these filters and they hold up just fine. The fountain runs like new every time and cleans out the nasties perfectly!
The pack of 12 came in a small brown box with a paper slip says it's from PetSafe. Since the filters look the same as the typical retail pack of 3 version and a lot cheaper, I will take Amazon's word for it.
