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.

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.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
