    Garmin® Introduces New Line of Electronic Dog Training Collars

    BarkLimiter™ and Delta™ Series Help Make Dogs More Enjoyable

    OLATHE, Kan. /January 14, 2013/Business Wire — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced a new line of electronic dog training systems: the BarkLimiter series of bark reduction collars and the Delta series of training collars for dogs.
    “These new electronic dog training aids are designed to help dogs learn – whether they’re elite sporting dogs or beloved members of the family,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Both the BarkLimiter and Delta series feature proven and safe electronic correction technology that has been perfected by Tri-Tronics – the leader in electronic dog training devices for more than 40 years.”
    The BarkLimiter Series
    There’s no denying it – all dogs bark. But problems begin when the barking becomes incessant – often times when family members are away from the home and unable to deal with the problem. Neighbors start complaining, and in extreme cases, the landlord or animal control intervenes – forcing pet owners to make difficult decisions.
    The new BarkLimiter series helps put an end to the problem by giving dog owners control over nuisance barking. Featuring bark identification technology that uses innovative accelerometer technology, the BarkLimiter is able to distinguish between barking and other vocalizations. Also exclusive to the new BarkLimiter Series is Advanced Bark Correction Technology, which delivers consistent and instantaneous correction, while substantially reducing false corrections that can be caused by external noises.
    Like all Garmin products, the BarkLimiter Series is simple to use, with a set-it-and-forget-it “autorise” function that automatically programs the stimulation intensity level based on the barking behavior of each individual dog. When a bark is detected, the lowest level of correction is given, and corrections will rise until the dog stops nuisance barking. After a prolonged period of quiet, the BarkLimiter will reset itself to two levels below the dog’s maximum level reached and begin rising again if barking resumes. Vibration and manual settings are also included.
    For dogs that spend time alone in an apartment or back yard, the Bark Odometer™ lets dog owners know exactly how many times their dog barked while they were away. The lightweight and compact BarkLimiter series features integrated stainless steel contact points and is waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Two versions are offered: the BarkLimiter, which features a long-lasting (up to 10 months) user-replaceable battery, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe, which features a rechargeable battery that lasts The BarkLimiter has a retail price of $79.99, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe has a retail price of $99.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.
    The Delta Series
    For dog owners that want both a training collar and a bark collar, the Delta Sport delivers – combining two great features into one small package. The Delta Sport is a sleek, ergonomic, and simple-to-use electronic training system for dog owners who want to teach their canine companion new commands, or refocus them away from unwanted behaviors. Functioning as a “virtual leash” up to three-quarters of a mile away, the Delta Sport gives dog owners a wide range of customizable correction settings, including tone, vibration, and 18 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation. And when not being used as a training collar, it serves double duty as a bark collar, with the same autorise feature found in the BarkLimiter Deluxe.
    The Delta handheld’s easy-to-read LCD display makes it simple to switch among five different training configurations. The trainer can make immediate corrections when necessary – all based on the temperament of the dog and the specific situation at hand. The Delta handheld can control up to three collars total (sold separately) and switching between different dog collars is effortless. The lightweight and compact Delta features integrated stainless steel contact points and both the collar unit and handheld are waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – and the transmitter floats. Both the handheld and collar unit come with rechargeable batteries that last up to three months on a full charge.
    For trainers who only want e-collar functions (and no BarkLimiter), Garmin offers the Delta in a basic configuration with three training configurations (instead of five) and half-mile range.
    The Delta has a retail price of $199.99, and the Delta Sport has a retail price of $249.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.
    The BarkLimiter and Delta Series dog training devices are the latest innovations in Garmin’s growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies to enhance users’ outdoor experiences and their relationships with their canine companions. Whether it’s hiking, hunting, golfing, geocaching, or dog training, Garmin devices are essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels.

    Sure looks that way. I'll be interested in the TT replacements when they come out.

    Are you talking about the t'mitters for P500, the G3's? If so, I just got one of those to replace my dead one. It is great!

    Has anyone else received multiple emails about this from Tri-Tronics? So far, I'm up to 7 emails that are identical to this, since this morning.

    Does anyone know if the Delta Sport has the option to turn off the bark limiter option when not needed, or does it stay on all the time?

    I just spent a week in Olathe for the spring sales meeting where we saw a lot of new products both TriTronics and Garmin. I have had a prototype on the new bark limiter for about 3 months and I can tell you with confidence it is better than what we have had in the past. Frankly, I liked the TriTronics bark limiter but the new one has a couple features that make it better. It has a rechargable battery, and also a feature that allows the collar to automatically increase and decrease in intensity depending on how frequent the dog barks. It is also waterproof which was not the case before. Overall a good improvement.
    The pain of regret is much worse than the pain of hard work.

    The answer to this is NO.
