The Garmin PRO 70 replaces the Tri-Tronics Classic 70. Designed with the beagler and the houndsman in mind, the PRO 70 is a long-range problem solver with one button per dog simplicity.

"PRO 70 is the perfect problem solver for folks that run multiple dogs in the field at the same time."

The PRO 70 has the least number of changes over any of the new systems. The basic operation is identical to the Classic 70 that Tri-Tronics has been making for the last decade.

The PRO 70 gives you one-handed functionality so you don't have to take your eyes off your dog. The simple "one button per dog" controls are color coded to match each dog's collar, and the top-mounted dial lets you choose from 6 levels of stimulation plus tone.

PROBLEM SOLVER

I classify this unit as a problem solver since it has a limited number of stimulation levels (6 continuous). Problem solving collars are designed to make corrections in situations like chasing off game, digging, counter surfing and chasing cars.

The increases between levels can be too great to train many dogs. What will happen in many situations with the PRO 70 is that the lowest level is not enough to get your dog's attention but the next level is too much stimulation for him. This creates a situation where you CANNOT use this collar to teach many basic obedience commands.

PERFECT FOR YOU IF:

If you are looking for a collar to correct bad behavior with multiple dogs then go with the 70.

DOING TRAINING? NEED MORE LEVELS?

If you are wanting a collar to train basic obedience and advanced hunting skills, you need to look at the PRO 550.

NEED MORE RANGE?

The PRO 70 is a one mile range system. For many folks this is plenty, but if you run really big ranging hounds, you may want to look at the 4 mile range PRO Trashbreaker.


PRO 70 FEATURES:

  • Expands up to 6 Dogs
  • 1 Mile range
  • User replaceable contact points
  • Includes regular and long probes
  • Remote controlled Beacon lights on collar receiver
  • Built in Bark Limiter
  • Tone
  • 6 Continuous Stimulation levels
  • User replaceable Lithium-ion batteries in the transmitter and collar receiver
  • Lanyard attachment point on the base of the unit



  • Transcript from Steve's Video:

    This is the Garmin Tri-Tronics Pro 70. This is the workhorse of the Tri-Tronics line. Itís very similar to what theyíve been doing for the last decade. Itís a really simple design, one button per dog. And there really was not a whole lot to change to it. Itís perfect for folks that are running large numbers of dogs up to six from one transmitter and that need a problem solver.

    When I say a problem solver, thatís what this collar is designed for. It is not what I would classify as a traditional training collar because of the stimulation levels. Itís a six level collar and itís perfect for stopping dogs from bad behaviorsóchasing off game, chasing cars, digging, any of that type of thing. Itís designed to stop dogs from doing things they are not supposed to be doing. But it cannot be used in a traditional manner as a remote training collar for me, as far as training a dog, because of the stimulation levels; the jumps between levels are pretty high. Weíll talk about that a little bit more.

    This is a one button per dog collar. Youíll see itís got three buttons across the front here. Youíve got Dog 1, Dog 2, Dog 3. You have a toggle switch. Kick that down and now itís a 4, 5, 6. If youíll notice, you have three different colors on the buttons, so your Dog 1 is black. Dog 2 is going to be red. Dog 3 is going to be blue. And then when you kick your toggle switch down, the rings around the buttons represent the collar strap colors. So youíve got orange, green, and yellow. Your dial on the top has a couple of new things here. Weíve got beacon lights that are built into the collars. Then youíve got tone. Then youíve got your levels 1-6 for continuous stimulation.

    There are several new features that are in the Pro 70. We have beacon lights that are built into the collar that can be remotely turned on and off from the transmitter. Then we also have a built-in bark limiter where you can take your collar and you can turn it into a bark collar. Itís not a remote bark collar in that you no longer have control over the stimulation from the transmitter. You actually have to activate it on the collar. That allows you to use it as bark collar when your dog is barking in the backyard, in the kennel, however you want to use it.

    Beacon lights on the Pro 70 are activated from the transmitter. On the dial you have an L selection. That stands for lights. You turn your dial to L and then one button per dog, so weíre going to press the black button, beacon lights come on. When you are ready to cut them off, you press the button again and they turn off. So, on and off. This is independent for each dog. If youíve got three or four different dogs running at one time and you want to turn the lights on, on one, turn the lights off on another, real simple to do from the transmitter.

    The Pro 70 collar is very similar to what weíve had in the past, except itís smaller, which is going to be great especially for our folks that are running Beagles. Itís a little bit smaller collar. It also comes with a three-quarter inch collar strap. So, on a smaller dog, itís going to look better. Itís going to fit them better. But itís still going to be big enough for your biggest hound. So, not a problem there.

    Itís similar to what weíve had in the past. Itís got the same contact points that weíve had for years. It comes with a regular. We also have long included, so if you have a thick-coated dog and you need to change it out, you can switch those out. Youíve got your on/off button. Youíve got your indicator light on the front. And then youíve got your beacon lights.

    The Garmin Pro 70 is an expandable system. What that means is that you can buy it as a one-dog system and then you can come back later and add collars 2-6 as needed. Iím going to show you real quick how to add a collar. Itís real simple.

    Get your selector dial on the collar that you want. Right now weíre going to add Dog 2. Iíve got my Dog 1 in black. Now weíre going to add Dog 2, which is a red collar. To put the collar into the mode so you can sync it up, press the on/off button, hold it down. Green light is going to come on, blue light is going to come on, then itís going to turn to yellow. Now hold down your red button and then youíll hear it beep at you several times. Now itís done and we are in here.

    Weíll show you the lights. Weíll go to the lights on there. That turns on. And then if you want to activate your Dog 1, so now Dog 1 and Dog 2. Turn your lights offÖand turn your lights off. Then to add Dogs 3-6 you just repeat the process.

    The Pro 70 is a great collar for folks that are running multiple dogs and that they need that ease of operation, one button per dog. Garmin really has not changed this system all that much, and so thatís a good thing. It really wasnít broken. It did not need to be fixed. And this is a great system, probably the most popular system that we have, especially for our Beagle folks. But itís also real popular with people that are working more hang three dogs at one time. So if you are running 4-6 dogs at one time and you need a one-mile problem solver, the Pro 70 is the way to go.

    Garmin PRO 70 Range


      Collar range is up to 1 mile which is ample for most dog training or hunting situations. Maximum range is based on "line of sight." This means that to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver, and the terrain should be flat and open. This isn't going to happen in most places that we spend time with our dogs. The range on all of the systems that we carry will vary depending on training conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.

      Remember, too much range will never hurt, but too little could be a problem.
