Looking to get a couple of new e-collars....need advice.
I have searched and it looks like there are so many opinions about which e-collars are "the best."
I lost a couple of my used Tri-Tronics collars when my van was stolen. Also my TT remote releases for my Wingers, though I recovered 3 of my GU SOG wingers (sans electronics) when the van was recovered by the police.
One of my e-collars was a multi-dog system, the other just a single with a small remote that had a lanyard I could wear around my neck when not using it. I need to replace them (I hope to be reimbursed by insurance, but definitely don't need anything too high end as I don't ever see myself doing field trials or professional training ;) ).
I'd like to stick with Tri-Tronics.
Can anyone recommend (or does anyone have a used one for sale?) a single dog system with a remote that is small and easy to use? Mine was purchased here from someone used and I loved it. I believe it had an "80" in the name? It doesn't look like any of the newer systems on the TT site though.
Also- for multiple dog systems... which are your favorites?
My uses include hunt test training, duck/quail/pheasant hunting, anything that requires an "invisible leash" such as off-leash runs at the beach or in the countryside where my obedience commands (such as "HERE") may require reinforcement. I don't "burn" my dogs (in fact, my hardest-headed dog usually only requires corrections on a "2" low/medium on the TT remote) and in fact rarely use the e-collar but it's there in case required. I haven't ever used e-collars when training for competitive/traditional obedience or agility, etc....
Thanks in advance!
