E-collars
 
Gonna start shopping for one. Our old one, a tri-tronic sat in my closet for years and it corroded inside, will not hold a charge. I had used it for recall with my malamute, trained with it twice and it worked, didn't need it again. Ranger has developed a few bad habits during his TPLO recovery that need to stop now. We have the trainer coming by this weekend to get DW started.

I like the Dogtra collars.

I like Einstien especially the tracking light and boost just wish the transmitter was not round and had a belt clip.
The mini Dogtra looks good too and does have a transmitter with belt clip.

Another vote for Einstein!

Lot more options out there than I realised, any model Einstein or Dogtra you guys recommend? I noticed Dogtra has some models with a page button for vibration, anyone use this effectively? Can't seem to find the dogtra mini, I'll keep looking.

Do you mean the leather case that goes on your belt?

I have a Dogtra Sure Stim H plus. I started out with a different model (2300NCP advance) but I lost the transmitter on a very snowy hike on 4th of July pass. Heh. When Dogtra sent me a replacement, they sent me the Sure Stim receiver.

I personally find the vibrate to be more irritating and disruptive to the dog than controlled stim at his working level. Just my .02.

Yeah.

Black Leather Holster With Snap and Belt Clip - $29.00 : Dog Equipment, Police Dog, Schutzhund, Service Dog, Dog Agility

And this one should come with it.

Belt/Saddle/ Purse Quick-Release Transmitter Holder - $9.00 : Dog Equipment, Police Dog, Schutzhund, Service Dog, Dog Agility



OP- I started with the Einstein mini educator and loved it. I recently got another ET400ts plus with 2 receivers and no complaints there either.

I saw those but decided to just use the lanyard. ( I do get strange looks from people who see a what looks like a yellow fisherprice toy around my neck) Reason being I like instant access to the buttons. The belt holster looks like it might block the buttons or am I not seeing it right?

My old dogtra transmitter was very unobtrusive. Went on my belt and I could use it without talking it off my belt. Like I said no tracking light or boost which is a big like for me on the Einstien not to mention their customer service.
