    It depends upon how much it is worth to you to be able to sleep at night, walk your dog without scraping your knees, and have arms free of teethmarks. Did I forget to mention chewed up cellphones and...

    I gave up on my tritronics 550 because the intensity seemed inconsistent. I purchased a dogtra edge 6 weeks ago and I'm happy with it.

    And that is what I was getting at. I felt like sometimes Toby did not feel the nick and then other times it was way too much. Completely unfair and undermined my confidence. Only 3 days of using the...

    I just started using a Dogtra Edge ecollar. I've experienced intermittent problems with my Garmin Pro 550, so finally broke down and ordered a Dogtra collar. The stim on the Garmin just did not...

    In Hillman's advanced training, does he transition to a more Lardy-like ecollar application? How many people are using Hillman's advanced training and what is their degree of success in field trials?
