Looking at getting a 4 dog collar, anyone have any recommendations? Not looking at anything with gps (just not in the funds right now).

Are you running Hounds or bird dogs?

Maybe give these guys a try - Hunt WA sponsor.

I was able to get a refurbished Tri-Tronic Classic 70 Exp 6 dog system with 2 collars a few years back at very reasonable price.  System works like a charm to this day.  Can also add Beepers to this model.

Duh. 3 Brittany and a Griffon upland and waterfowl. Definitely something with tone or vibration.

Someone has more talent than I do, Ive never been able to hunt with more than one dog, I've known many a talented professional handlers who also couldn't keep track of more than one good dog at a time.

It was more of a ďduhĒ guess I shouldíve been a little more specific on what Intended usage was going to be.

I use Dogtra, two different models since I somehow lost the remote on a hunt this year.  I don't have experience with other brands, but these have been awesome for me.  I rarely have to shock, my lab responds nearly perfectly to a quick vibration even when she is fully wound up.

Crappy actually, blew my back out at end of august, missed the annual sharptail trek, which turned out to not be a bad thing as bird numbers were down, made one trip eastside and it was okay except my partner marched me to death and my back acted up. Really just not into it that much anymore except for week long trips. I lost my wonder dogs last year at this time, just kind of still in a funk .

My recommendation.  Donít bite off more than you can chew.  Get a collar that you can run two dogs off, and donít try and run more than that.

More for just around the property, I already have a two dog collar. Just going to be awhile before I can fence the ten acres. Just need a hearing aid for them.   :chuckle:

I have a Garmin Sport Pro. You can run up to 3 dogs on it. I have only been hunting my Lab this year, but it has been great. I will be running 2 next season so we'll see how that goes. Garmin also makes the Pro 550 that is expandable to more dogs. This is a good place to buy e-collars and regular collars too. They sell refurbished Tri-tronics and Garmin units as well. https://www.outdoordogsupply.com/

Not trying to be a jerk, but that sounds like a really bad idea for ecollar use.  E-collars arenít ďhearing aids.Ē

Pop all the dogs at once. You can only get that when tri tronics gives you special collars. Put two, three on one dog at the same time
