Quick Tip - Rescue Mode
The Rescue Mode increases the amount of time before a collar battery dies. This allows more time to find and recover the dog. This mode can be activated automatically or manually. When it is manually activated, the collar’s update rate will drop to every 2 minutes to ping the ALPHA handheld to extend the battery life. The Rescue Mode stays on until it is turned off. When the battery of the collar drops to 25%, it will be activated automatically.
