Need to buy new E collar, at least 2 dog system. Currently have 2 dogs, never know...might have a #3 some day.
I have a TriTronic G2 Pro 100 with 1 collar. I bought it new 5 years ago, planning to add collars as needed. Now it is no longer supported by Garmin(after they bought out TriTronic), and can't get parts or batteries. So no sense getting 2nd collar now
Husband needs unit for new pup he is training. He does not like "bulky" tube style transmitter that I am comfortable with. Plan is to buy new 2 dog system, so when Pro 100 dies we can both use newer system.
Looking at Garmin Delta Sport. Seems to have lots of features, you can lock in separate levels for each dog- so when switch to 2nd dog no need to adjust every time, includes bark collar. Front buttons seemed sort of spongy on display model at Cabelas, while side ones couldn't feel if you had pushed them. But unit wasn't powered up, so no way to check display screen. Any comments would be appreciated
Alternatives are Sport Dog 825 or 1825, or previous years model 800 that is still available new from factory store. Good collars, have read several critical reviews of repairs required.
Neither one of us like Dogtra models because of rheostat dial. Having to look at each time you adjust the level of correction seems awkward. There is no tactile or audible click to let you know what level you moved to, that all others have. Online reviews also comment repairs, about same as Sport Dog.Open to suggestions from Dogtra users
We're interested in Einstein collars, but concerned they are "flash in the pan" and won't be around long. Although the floating transmitter is a very attractive feature Other nice features include locked in 2 dog levels and light controlled by transmitter. Plus some very positive comments here when they were introduced. Anyone still using them?
***We do hunt tests and upland hunt our Labs, no need for super long range collars.
Thanks for sharing.
