    Default Best Multi Dog E Collar on the Market?

    Trying to get an idea of what I want to save up for. I work part time up north guiding professionally and I now have a team I'll be working on some of our heavier hunts. Looking for a collar system with multi dog capabilities as I'll be working two out of the spread at times. Haven't been in the market for a collar in the last 6 years as my Dogtra has held up fine. Open to other brands and I know there are a lot of opinions. Been looking a lot at both Dogtra and Tritronic products. What have y'all had better experiences with? Thanks, Blake

    I am a tritronics girl as far as ecollars are concerned. Bark collars, give me Dogtra - specifically the YS-300.

    We have the Dogtra Edge. A little pricy compared to some of the other multi-collar units, but we're enjoying it. It also comes with a "light" function that comes in handy when airing dogs at night.

    I prefer Tritronics products. I run my dog in HRC events and thinking about some AKC. But I primarily bought a "hunting dog". I love the size of Tritronics Sport series transmitters. As far as durability to the Pro style receivers I have seen both fail and succeed. I like the lightweight size and feel in my hand. I have used a Sport Basic for 5 or 6 years and if asked again I would buy the same one. I hunt from Sept thru March with my dog and my tritronics collar.

    Tri Tronics is just coming to the market with the new "Delta" series that is a 3 dog unit and a bark limiter also. A good value for the money and very functional also. It will come with the TT brand backing up the performance and will be a good unit for hunting or training.
    The receiver is a little smaller than the Pro models but still does the job. I have had a prototype for several months and like it a lot. Digital stimulation levels that are easily adjusted, waterproof, adequate range for hunting or training. The transmitter is the perfect size for the hunting jacket or vest pocket.
    You should really look at this before purchasing another brand.

    The info says "small to medium" size dogs on the Dogtra YS-300 Is the collar size large enough for a typical size Lab - 55-75 lbs?

    I just purchased two used Tritronics bark collars on the classifieds here and one worked for a week, and one has never worked.. putting in new batteries didn't make a difference either. I should have just purchased new ones.

    You might try to take a real small screwdriver or punch and push the on/off button all the way down to be sure you have it turned on. On some of my older ones, I have found the on/off to be the issue.
    Try a new TT bark limiter and you will see that TT has fixed this issue. Better yet, get a TriTronocs Delta model and you will have your training and bark collar all in one.
    They work . I know as I have had one for several months.
