which e collar?

11 posts in this topic

anybody else get the Tri Tronic 40th anniversary card in the mail? They are offering 40% off on a new collar if you send in your old collar. I have an old field 70 that I like but have considered getting a unit that is a bit smaller and lighter. Do you guys that have the small walkie talkie style transmitters like them as well as the old "flashlight" style that I currently have. I kind of like the old style as it fits in the holder on my game vest and is easy to find the button without haveing to look for it. Also am not sure if I would like having the new smaller model that hangs around your neck. Just looking for some feed back on the other style of transmitter

It would be a nice up grade. They have improved a lot since you got yours. The nicest feature for your dog is the "tone". Teach your dog that and you can stop Zap'm them.

The locator tone is indeed a nice feature. Has almost eliminated the need to nick my dogs. I have a Dogtra and it really is a great collar. Like you, I first thought having the transmitter hanging around my neck would be a pain, but it really isn't a big deal at all. I'd say you have the opportunity for a very nice upgrade.

Gadgetman,

If you are not going to use that 40% off card, please send it my way wink

I have the G2 model today and instead of having it hang around my neck, I bought a holder that has a clip so I attach it to a belt loop on my pants. Works pretty decent.

I won't own another Tritronics. I had repeated issues with the ones that I owned. Switched to Dogtra and never looked back. I have run a two dog system and it has worked flawlessly for 3 years. Its used year round and I still haven't had to swap out the rechargeable batteries.

Just ordered a TT Upland Special G2 EXP today. I've been a loyal TT owner for many years.

I currently own TT and Dogtra and would recommend both.

Gadget - a 40% off coupon would make the decision quite easy, IMO, as long as it wasn't from INNOTEK!

I had a 13 year old Field 70(called the Judge) that I sent in this morning. It was still working fine just too bulky. Ordered a new Pro 100 Exp, paid less than I paid 13 years ago for the other one. Can't beat that deal!

Personally I think Dogtras are the best on the market. Check them out!

Thanks for the input guys. I am NOT looking to trade to a different manufacturer of collars, I like my TT just fine. I was just wondering if people liked the small transmitter as I am used to the larger unit that I have had for 8 years. They are offering me a pretty good discount on a new model and I guesss that I will have to take them up on their offer

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
