Thread: new collar....not Tri-Tronics

  1. #1

    Default new collar....not Tri-Tronics

    What would be the top brand of collar if you were not going to go with Tri-Tronics. I have had some issues with Tri-Tronics lately and their customer service has not been the same since the switch to Garmin in my experience. I am not looking to get into all of that. I would just like to hear what brands would be a top choice if Tri-Tronics was out of the picture. I know there is Dogtra, Sportdog and D.T. Systems that I mainly see advertisements for. Are there other worthy brands that i have seen? I have done zero research and have no experience with any of them as I have always been a TT guy. What would are some suggestions for other ways to go? I was using the TT Flyway G3.

    I'm trying out the new Einstein 2 dog. Has a couple features like stim lock, stim boost, & light (which helps this time of year) that so far I like. The way I understand, the guy used to be with Dogtra.

    Another vote for Dogtra, a very well made product with excellent customer service. When I was first trying out ecollars, I liked the fit of the transmitter in my hand better than what TT had at that time, and have never switched. I have 3, the 3500 ncp (bought used) and 2 older ones, the 1200 that's probably 9 or 10 years old, and an old war horse, a 12 year old 2000. The rare times I've needed help, Dogtra has had great customer service including providing a manual/info/case on the one I bought used for free. And, a free replacement transmitter when shortly after purchasing the 1200, a certain thuggish young CBR gnawed it up. The old 2000 I probably use most, because even with almost daily use it only needs to be charged about 3 or 4x a year. And in 12 years it's only needed batteries replaced twice.

    If you get an Einstein Collar they also double as a snuff can.
