|Frequently Asked Questions
Can Stimulation be changed?
Yes, any time.
Can the Master transmitter be used?
Yes, if you switch it out of dog and gun mode.
Can I run 2 dogs with different stimulation levels?
Yes, two buttons or more can be used and each can be set at different levels or even different types of stimulation. Three types of momentary are offered.
Can I buy extra buttons so I can install them on different guns?
Can I have two buttons, one set, for example, on a low level 1 or vibrate, and the other on level 4 for high stimulation.
Yes and you can change levels easily.
Is there any delay in stimulation versus the master transmitter?
No - the response is instant - less than fractions of a second.
If I do not buy a gun button at the time of purchase, can I add it later?
Yes, at any time. All Hawx products come "Dog & Gun ready," which means they already have a DG radio receiver installed. You just pair the two units when you receive your Dog and Gun button control.

Can batteries be changed?
Yes, the Dog and Gun uses a lithium rechargeable and replaceable battery.

A: No, your Hawx products are waterproof and submersible
Q: If I unplug my unit after it is fully charged and immediately plug it back in, will the unit start flashing again?

Are longer/shorter contact points available?
