    Agree and if I did not see the response I want I would walk away from AKC in a short mark minute. Not support them and give them none of my money. I am just like that.

    If it was me I would put my big girl panties on, walk on over and politely discuss the problem. I would offer to help fix it and see where that leads.

    Tri Tronics E-collar Tracer Light

    Anyone with plenty of experience using the Tri Tonics Tracer Light on their e-collars.
    My questions:
    Do the work?
    Do they last?
    Are they user friendly?
    Are they bullet proof?
    Thanks

    It's easy. Boycott AKC. If all E-collar users write to the AKC with their intentions they will be forced to listen.

    I think a few things need to be in place at least with some reliability, not in order of preference:
