Tucking gps collar antenna into collar

Hey guys
Anybody do this to keep them from flopping aroun a lot and how much range did you lose on the tracking?
Thanks

Never had an issue with the antenna interfering with my dogs performance, I'd just leave it  :twocents:.

I've tucked mine in, doesn't seem to effect range.  I've also had my pup chew on it while in his kennel and didn't seem to effect anything.  After he chewed it, I took the whole antennae off.  The receiver worked fine but accuracy bounced around a bit, maybe +/- 100' is all.

I tuck mine in when the dog is around young kids. I don’t want him to accidentally whip one.
