    Darrin , Seeing that you are promoting these collars you might want to write Foster and Smith Training people and let them know how incredibly WRONG their advice is on how to start the dog on an ecollar http://ecollar.com/index.php/e-colla...ing-techniques

    this is the basics intro.....

    "Here's how it works:Place the collar on your dog - you can choose a collar with different stimulation levels or a
    vibration collar - and make sure you know how the transmitter works.
    Call out the command and if your dog does not respond, correct him by pressing the
    transmitter button. Make sure you use the lowest level - your goal is to get the animal's
    attention but never hurt the dog. Your dog should associate the stimulation with your voice - he naturally wishes to please
    you, so should respond quickly. When he performs the correct behavior, reward him. Your
    praise can be a simple pat on the shoulder or chest, verbal praise, or a treat. This will further
    reinforce the correct behavior.

    Bought a TT Sport Basic G3 at a Hunt Test tailgate party auction last year new in box for about $50 more than they were selling for at the time. Wife asked me if I was crazy or had too many beers. Sounds like I made a good investment. It's still in the box because I have a Pro200 G3 with 2 collars that I'm using now. I think I'll just let it sit on the shelf until I need it.

    You're kidding me right? I'm not promoting anything.

    As usual trying to help people with useful information and getting grief over it.

    The first thing I tell anyone about an e-collar or a pinch collar or even a clicker is not to try and go to the internet for information on how to use it, but rather to consult someone with experience using the tool in question.

    I don't really care what the website says. It seems so far to be a quality product and people here should know about their options.

    No but I did see a guy using a very low stim level (5 out of 100) to substitute for the clicker, actually.

    I switched from TT to Dogtra about six years ago and havn't looked back. It took me awhile to get use to the transmitter but I like the Dogtra way better. I like how you turn it off and on and I like the dial. What I really like is the fact that I do not have to send every other one back because something was wrong with it. I had bad luck with TT and even though I all but got their units for free the Dogtra collars have held up way better.

    I am not a fan of the new Garmin Delta's or Delta Sports. As stated previously the annoyance of having to look at the transmitter has been difficult to over come. I personally use the Pro 100 but we sell the Delta and Delta sport as an entry level collar to our clients. Neither have been easy to explain to clients to use. I felt my clients were alot more comfortable using the TT basic then the new Delta's. I also enjoyed the TT charging station rather than the wiring harness Garmin provides. I have expressed my concerns to my Garmin Rep unfortunately I don't think they will be changing anything soon.
