The Collar Clinic for reconditioned collars. Possibly other forums or sites like hsolist.

I personally would buy/recomend Dogtra or Tritronics. I own a Dogtra my self and if I need to purchase another ever, it will be Dogtra.

If you do a search there have been many discussions on this forum about collars that you may find helpful.

I second Collar Clinic. I purchased my Tri-tronics collar there.

Make sure you zap yourself before you zap your dog. It helps to know what you'll do to your dog when you hit the button. Effective tools, but must be used appropriately.

Used is a bit dangerous. The batteries in them don't last forever. My first was a Tritronics and it worked well for 5 or 6 years. The model was disontinued by then and it was going to be big bucks to get things squared away. I would be cautious of an hsolist or hsolist setup. The models change pretty quickly these days and you may find yourself SOL if you have a problem and need help from the manufacturer.

Like Tom said, you need to be cautious if you look for an actual "used" collar from somewhere else. If you do this you would want to look for a newer model and not just any old collar. I know there are Dogtra's around that have only been out for a few years....so that would guarantee a collar is only a few years old.

One other note, I did find my new collar on HSOList. The place I found selling the collars also had a normal site so I checked out the site and called them and ended up buying right through the store over the phone instead of on HSOList. Best price around from what I could find (no tax and free shipping). You can do a search for mygoodpuppy if you are interested.

I also bought my Dogtra new from a store on hsolist. Saved a bundle.

With the used models, you will want to make sure that they replaced the rechargeable batteries.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
