We recently received a Tri-tronics upland special XLS from an elderly uncle whom can no longer handle dogs. His dogs were trained for upland purposes, but my husband only waterfowls. At this point our 6-mo pup is only wearing the collar to get used to it. We have not even turned it on. Is this particular collar too much for our purposes as beginners? The transmitter is quite bulky to take afield. Should we consider selling for something lighter and more appropriate for a newbie? Much appreciated.
