Training/Field Collar Recommendations
« on: January 16, 2018, 09:21:34 PM »
Looking for recommendations on training/Field collars.  Recently got a golden retriever puppy, and it's super early in his training.  So far, "sit" as stuck!  Potty training in a headache...but progressing.  Any recommendations on training & field collars would be helpful as I'm researching.

Thanks!

Stay away from Sport Dog. I'd lean towards Dogtra or Garmin.

I've had two different Dogtra collars and both have been great.

I am looking at the Dogtra Edge RT based on comments by others, but I use Garmin products for other applications and will be checking them out also.

We have tritronics trainers, we've had the same units for about 15 or 20 years, we use them during bear and cougar season every year and they all still function perfectly, I think they are the best built longest lasting trainers out there, my personal opinion based on all these years of use.

One of my guides updated to the new garmin setup with gps and trainer combined, he likes it and it has functioned well so far.

Call Double U Hunting Supply, ask for Buddy or Mike, they will be able to steer you in the right direction, they deal Garmin, Dogtra, and keep a good stock of used Tri Tronics gear as well. 855-384-8687

that is excellent advice, they have steered us in the right direction  :tup:

Really?  We've had no problems with our Sportdog ST120.

Thanks!

Are you crate training for housebreaking?  It is by far the easiest thing we have done.  Fortunately, all of the puppies from our litter were pretty much housebroken due to the amount of time I spent with them in the last three weeks.

Have had a dogtra collar for 9 years and the only complaint is how long it took for them to ship it back to me after it was repaired this past December and how much it costed for a crappy shipping service. Had no option in how I wanted it sent to me.
No longer a WA resident and not sad about it.
