The DELTA family gets some needed improvements in its second version.
Best bang for the buck.
The Garmin Delta XC is one of our NEW best-sellers because this is perfect for 95% of folks looking for a dog training collar, and at a great price point.
Extremely well made. Tri-tronics reliability with Garmin's sense of design. Garmin's first remote training system after purchasing Tri-Tronics gets some feature changes that fix a few issues that folks had with the original.
The Delta XC line adds both long and short contact points, a new stimulation pattern, options to bypass unused multidog features and rapid stimulation level changes if needed.
Features BOTH tone AND vibration. You can use tone as a warning or recall. Vibration works well for silent commands, and with older deaf or hard of hearing dogs.
Small collar/receiver comfortably fits a wide range of dogs from 8 lb. all the way up to 120 lb. dogs.
Small transmitter. Fits nicely in your hand.
Half-mile range works for most folks.
Garmin Delta XC features 18 levels of STIM which means you can hone in and fine tune the correction level that your dog responds to. Works for even the most sensitive dogs.
Multiple modes which means you can customize the button set-up to your preference of training style.
This is an amazing training aid. Within the first week of use, we made excellent progress establishing off-leash control and the desired behaviors when off-leash. Most of the time we only need the vibrate option to get her complete attention and quick response to a voice command.

So far so good. Collar works great. I've never really tested the limits of the range or how well it works in water, but no complaints yet. The battery on the collar requires charging a little more often than I expected, but it's not a problem.

The collar is well designed, easy to understand, simple to use and most importantly, effective. Used appropriately, as it should be, only the most hard headed dogs would not get the message. This tool makes a good dog better.

I would rate it 5 stars if the tone was louder. Everything about the collar is great, but the tone is hardly loud enough for me to hear when I am standing next to my dog. It will be fine in normal situations, but whenever he is in noisier environments the only way to correct him is to shock him. Whereas I like to give him a chance to correct himself with the tone before he gets shocked.

New & Improved for 2015 -- Best-Selling Garmin Delta XC
Now with LONG & SHORT Contact Points (finally!)
Replaces and improves upon their all-time best-seller, the Tri-Tronics Sport Basic!
What's New in the Garmin Delta XC
Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level:
Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level using the new side button feature. Just press and hold to increase multiple levels.
Set the number of dogs on your system:
The Delta XC Series gives you the option of having a one dog unit, a two dog unit or a three dog unit. If you are not running multiple dogs, you can remove this option and only have the dogs on the handheld that you actually have. You can always add the second and third dog options back to the handheld if you add additional dogs down the road.
Long and short contact points:
The original Delta collars came with short probes installed that were not removable or replaceable with long probes. The Delta XC comes with regular (short) probes installed but long probes are also included and can easily be swapped. These are the same probes used on the Gramin PRO units.
New stimulation pattern:
The original Delta units had a stimulation pattern that didnít match anything that Tri-Tronics had used before. It was much lower on the top end and we ran across a number of dogs that it didnít work with in high drive situations. To fix this issue, Garmin has made the DELTA XC stimulation pattern match the one in the Garmin PRO systems. Donít take this to mean that this is a substantially "hotter" collar and it might be too strong for your dog. The low end is still very low, and the middle numbers are also the same. The top end is now what we expect out of a Tri-Tronics system and I donít expect to see any issues with dogs blowing off the stimulation.
Modified side collar loops for a better fit:
The Delta XC Series has slightly modified collar strap loops that allow the receiver to fit better on dogs with larger necks. These modified loops allow the collar to open wider and place the contact points in a better position on the neck compared to the original Delta collar.
The Garmin Delta XC remote training collar is both simple and effective using proven Tri-Tronics technology. It features a simple, push-button design with an easy-to-read LCD display so you can correct your dog instantly, for a stronger connection between behavior and training.
The Garmin / Tri-tronics Delta XC remote dog training system gives you more control with more simplicity and a 1/2 mile range. The handheld controller features a 3-button design with improved false-correction prevention (dog select lock) and an easy-to-read LCD display. The receiver collar features both long and short interchangeable contact points. Choose from 18 levels of continuous stimulation and 18 levels of momentary stimulation plus tone and vibration with 3 possible button configurations. Can be expanded up to 3 dogs with additional collars.
