    I just bought a new Garmin/Tritronics Pro 70 with just 1 collar for $300. I guess if it was in good condition probably just because of the extra collar.

    Some of my yellow dogs nose's turn pinkish in the winter and then back to black in the winter. Others stay black all year long. From what I've seen it just varies from dog to dog.

    I recommend that everyone new to training retrievers read Water Dog. It gives you a good understanding of how modern methods works. Kind of like a history lesson. Then from there, go with one of the...
