I'm looking to purchase an entry level training collar. Just wondering if anyone has any recomendations. I want to spend around $200.00 and was considering the Innotek Command Series II with 1000 yd range. I'm training a chessie for mostly waterfowl retrieving and some upland work. I would appreciate any recomendations.

I had an innotek for two days, they just seemed cheap to me. Took them back and got a tritronics 60s sport series. It was like $260, you can get a tri tronics 50s for around $200. I would strongly recommend tritronics....

If not, dogtra or DT makes a solid colar, but if you look at them, how they are made, I really like the tritronics, plus there are more accessories and you can get replacement collar straps...

I'll definately second the tri-tronics products. I've seen a few people that I hunt and train with have problems with their Innotek collars. I use a TT Sport 50s and I couldn't be happier. I don't know about the Innotek collars, but the TT collars have changeable contacts, which would be good for a chessie so you could use the long contacts.

Hey thanks for the info, I don't mind spending an additional $60.00 or more if I can get a better product. I'll definately research Tritronics and Dogtra. I see the Tritronics sport 60s for $260 at Cabelas and at Lion Country Supply (by the way Lion Country Supply is an awesome place, I do alot of mail order through them, great prices and shipping is only $5.95 on almost everything in their catalog!) I still need to price Dogtra. Thanks again for your advise!!!

I second that motion. Gundogsupply.com is a great company. Steve Snell and his family have worked real hard to build a reputable business. I personally do not use a collar, but have read many of Steve's reviews on them. The new sportmans 1800 and 2000 look to be great products he highly reccommends. They are perfect for waterfowling (waterproof transmitters). Although just above what you are wanting to spend, but look to be well worth the investment.

Thanks again everyone for your help. The Sportdog 2000 by Petsafe with a waterproof transmitter and cammo color looks good too. It appears to be a fairly new product though, has anyone tried it yet?

I'll add a third endorsement for GunDogSupply.com. Very good people, prices, and selection. A virtual one-stop-shop for the gun dog trainer/owner.

Well I just ordered a collar, went with the Tritronics Sport 60s. Thanks to your advise and additional research (gundogsupply.com has great reviews thank for the tip) I chose this one. It fits my budget, has all the features I need, and is made in the USA! Again thanks for all your info!!!! :smile:

Matt,

You won't be dissapointed with that colar. I have the same one. Keep the transmitter dry and you will have lots of life out of that unit. Make sure and read everything you can about how to train with them, talk to everyone and watch videos. An e-colar in the wrong hands can ruin a dog. I am the ONLY one that can ever hold that transmitter when its on my pups.

Good luck!

Mike
