    Default DT systems collars

    Anyone have any experience with them? I have always had Dogtra collars (ok, only two). Reason I am asking it I can get one at a significant discout at work, and I need to get a 2 dog unit.

    Thanks

    Several years ago I had an SPT2422 2-dog system and liked the features of the collar. The only negative I found was the size of the buttons on the transmitter made it difficult to use with gloves on .... and that does become an issue up here in the winter months ..... so went back to a TT Pro 100.

    Why do you need a two dog collar unit?

    I have 2 dogs that we hunt. I had thought about getting another separate unit, but having 2 transmitters seems to me to be overcomplicated.

    We hunt upland and waterfowl. When its ducks and geese, its one dog, but when its pheasants and chukars we take both of em.

    I run 4 dogs simultaneously a lot. I'm using a TT Classic 70 G3 transmitter for it. Works great.

    (although, I must admit, I certainly have accidentally bumped the wrong dog a time or two)

    2 is going be my limit, I have a hard enought time with 2.
    Ended up going with a Tri Tronic Flyway. With the rebates they have it made it a bit easier to spend a little more (as apposed to a lot without the rebate )
