Hard to find a used collar I think. You might try posting a request on http://www.versatiledogs.com. Lots of dog guys on there so you may be able to score on that site.
People never really finish training with a collar. There is always something to polish up on, or the dog could revert back to old ways and need some correction. Whatever you do, if you get a collar, make sure you read about how to use them. Collars are great tools to reinforce known commands, but can be one of your pitfalls if not used correctly. Sorry to preach to you, but it is important to know how/when to use the collar.
:umm: ok went to the collar clinic , and our wharehouse has now got a new item, its the sport dog line of ecollars. how reliable are they. i like the info it says but then , tritronics says similar and have had a problem with one as well as my buddies have had problems with theres. most of them went to dogtra some just dropped it all together. but i need to know if its going to be worth it. to purchase this.........................
My parents bought me one of the sport dog collars worked great but then it quit working. I called the company and they sent a new one out no questions asked and this was a cheaper model. They made a life long customer here.
oooo. got another question.....................
i see there are alot of different distances for collars........25 mile to 1.5 miles or more.............
will a duck dog ever go farther than .75 miles from you , what made you purchase the collar that you did.?
**** dogs and cat dogs.........i may understand distance then you need a tracker. upland game and ducks i dont see it.
went to sportsman wharehouse and the guy tried to sell me a 1.5 mile (if i remember right) and told me i would need it...............the collar was around 400 plus........
just asking before making the final decision.
If you are a casual hunter you dont need anything over 1/2 mi---If you plan on testing I would stay in the 3/4 to 1mi range. Dont think distance think of hills,trees,boats, and other things that might block a weaker signal. :thumbsup:
Haven't seen this collar on the versatile site, but a used sport dog should be pretty reasonable as far as price. I've got a Sport 50s and new I'm thinking it was in the low to mid 200 range. Works great for me.
I have a sport 50s and I am absolutly brutal on all my equipment. I have yet to have a problem with either the reciever or transmitter. I also used mine in saltwater for about a year. IMO I would go with either dogtra or TT. :thumbsup:
well, after reading this post and doing some more checking and comparisons. sport dog is the only one with a (lifetime warranty) or am i missing something, i have a hunting aquaintance that is trying to sellme on the dogtra............... :hammering: decisions , decisions.
