Excellent Product Reviewed: April 22, 2009
By: Leolani FurlongThis collar has been a life saver for us. Our German Shorthaired Pointer is constantly on the go on our 20 acre property and the surrounding woods. If we allowed her absolute freedom, she'd be in the next county! But with the G3 Sport Basic collar, if she is out of our sight and hearing she immediately comes back to us when we hit the button! This collar states that it has a 1/2 mile range if nothing blocks the transmission. Well when our dog is in the forest, it even works with the tall timbers in the way. We highly recommend this product and the customer service at Gun Dog Supply is excellent! If you shop anywhere else, you are wasting your time!
Happy Owner Reviewed: August 22, 2009
By: MikeI bought this for my two very large and bullheaded Kangal dogs. Unlike most people, I didnt buy this for hunting dogs. I had to buy it because my dogs would not listen to save their (or my) life!!! two hours, thats all it took to make them listen! I can now walk them without a leash! They follow me everywhere i go and now I dont even have to put the collars on them for them to do exactly what I say! Could not be happier! I can even wash them with the collars on! No problem! Very well made product with absolutely no issues and no regrets! If you are looking for a training collar, get this one!!!
Invaluable Training Tool Reviewed: April 17, 2009
By: KarenThis collar has been the best purchase for my dog Fritz that I have ever made. I use it at least once per day while working my dog Fritz. I am convinced that Fritz would not be the same obedient dog as he is today if it were not for that collar. The receiver has been submerged in a freezing canoe and has been dropped more times than I can count. It is still going strong, and so is Fritz!
Invaluable. Reviewed: July 8, 2009
By: Erika WilsonGreat product! I have who loves to dart out in to potentially dangerous situations, because he just has so much energy. I took the time to train him myself and he's fine when he's inside the house, but once you open the door. He ignores any commands entirely. After weeks of researching e-collars I found this one to be the most effective and the easiest to use. I finally bought it skeptically, but once I was using it. Every command was followed with very few corrections. I have to say this is a great tool for reinforcing commands our dog already understands, but would ignore, because of all of the outside distractions. This tool is durable, straight-forward, and effective. However, my only criticism is the size of the receiver. My dog is a beagle mix and it almost looks tumorous on his neck. But truly this is a strike against all e-collars it seems. Besides that, this is worth the price and will last plenty of years. Thanks Tritronics!!!
A MUST BUY Reviewed: April 29, 2010
By: AndrewI have both a Flat Coated Retriever and a Beagle. When I purchased this collar I had it in mind for my Flat Coat because she would easily get distracted off leash. I never thought anything would work for my Beagle. Sure enough with in 5 minutes and only 1 shock on 3.5 and my beagle comes when called. I have tried everything for the past 3 years for my Beagle including thousands of dollars on trainers. I now have a collar for both dogs and It is easy to switch between the two. It really is an amazing tool and I highly recommend it. I will say that curiosity is getting the best of me and I am wondering what amazing things the more advanced collar systems can do.
Best Buy I've made for Dogs Reviewed: August 21, 2010
By: Suzanne HodgesMy husband and I love to be outside with our dogs, but we've never been able to trust them not to run away. Last winter, when we had feet of snow on the ground and temps were frigid, one of our dogs took off after a deer and was gone until almost 3:30am. I decided to get a training collar to prevent him from doing it again but thought my other dog was too old to be retrained. The collar worked so well and so quickly with my younger dog that I decided to give it a try with my older dog. It worked like a charm on him, too.
Now our lives with our dogs are completely different. We can take them anywhere off leash and never have to worry about them running away or disobeying. Better still, we rarely ever have to use the collar at this point. After the training period, they typically respond simply to our serious tone of voice. It's heaven. We've hiked, been swimming, been to outdoor events...all with no worries. I can't say enough good things about this collar. My only regret is that I didn't get the collars sooner.

All I have to do is Buzz her and she turns and comes when outside. :) It's a bit big on her skinny neck. I would love a smaller version with the same amount of "pow"....for stubborn dogs.
WOW Reviewed: April 8, 2010
By: TomWe have a great dane that would act right for my wife when she was off leash. In one day the problem was over, and it did not take much (maybe 3 shock at 3.5). This is an amazing product. The product was shipped very quickly and packaged well. Over all this has been an excellent but and I will do my bussiness with you again.
Amazing Reviewed: November 15, 2010
By: Trey RogersDon't hesitate to buy this collar...this thing is amazing. My dog trainer told me there are one of three ways to correct your dog's behavior....beat them, scold them verbally or get an "E-Collar" so I chose this route. I have to say this thing is invaluable. Just after a few sessions my dog was getting it. I have a Golden Retriever who will not stay out of the water so I also bought the Tracer Light(incase the collar slipped off I could see it in water), I highly recommend that as well. Don't shop around...the price is the same everywhere unless you get on eBay, buy it from GunDogSupply because you know they will back their products.
Worked on my scared dog Reviewed: November 27, 2010
By: JackieI have a rescue. Had her 2 months. She is scared of people took her a month n some work 4 her to warm to me. Her natural personality is dog friendly BUT she is toy aggressive which doesn't fly at the dog park. I needed this because I needed to prevent her from guarding toys at the park n escalating into fights. But w her timid ways I can't afford to cause her to regress either. I couldn't police her across the field plus she is a border collie mix n super fast so I can't catch her. This thing is awesome.I don't even have to shock her just the sound of the bs button on her collar freaks her out enough to snap her out of her aggressive mindset. I'm glad I dont have to ban her from the park or take her back to the shelter. It is really helping correct her toy aggressive behavior.

My GSD has been extremely responsive to the unit. I only have it on 2 and she instantly responds. The transmitter and receiver have proven to be rather robust as she plays hard with her litter mate, and still the unit works as the day I bought it (over a year ago). Definitely a GREAT tool. Plus, with the ability to expand, I am purchasing the JR. collar in hopes my beagle does as well as the GSD.

Affordable, easy to use electronic training collar. Transitioning my retriever off-lead was very simple after watching the (20) minute DVD . The buzz (BZ) feature can be used to substitute any command your dog already knows which is a nice feature to swap for a whistle blast. There are (10) different stimulation settings (half-clicks) from 0.5 to 5.0 to dial-in the correct level for your dog. I Rated 4 stars instead of 5 because the transmitter uses standard 9 volt batteries vice a permanent rechargeable one in the receiver. Very fast shipping, had my package within 48 hours.

I live in the country with horses and neighboring livestock. Without this collar to enforce "come" and "quit" he would either have been stomped or shot by a neighbor. Wonderful product, All I have to do now is show him the transmitter and he changes his mind. Just adopted a Border Collie mix and ordered a second collar just in case.
Sport Basic G3 Problems Reviewed: January 14, 2011
By: Jim SteigerThe receiver unit has a small rubber depression button to turn the unit off and on. Over time, the depression sinks in farther and farther, and after one year in is extremely difficult to turn it on or off without some sort of a small pointed tool. I sent it back to Tri-Tronics for repair, they returned it, and after another year the same problem occurred again. Because of this problem, I would not recommend this unit!!

The wider spread of stimulation levels in this collar allow you to find the correct level for your dog in any training situation.

Tri-tronics SPORT BASIC Transmitter (Remote)
Smaller and ergonomically shaped, the G3 transmitter fits your hand better and is more comfortable to use and carry.
Another feature is the 1 1/2 inch integrated transmitter antenna. Lowering the antenna has drastically reduced the over all size of the transmitters with no loss in range. You can't lose or break this one.
Fully waterproof and submersible, these systems are perfect for training in wet and raining conditions with no worry about damaging your training gear.
Another feature on this transmitter is the sure-grip rubber coating which feels great in your hand and is not slick or slippery when wet -- perfect for training retrievers!
The Sport Basic has three black waterproof rubber buttons that control the stimulation and tone feature.
The bottom black button instantly controls 10 levels of momentary stimulation.
The middle black button (with raised nub so you can feel the difference) instantly controls 10 levels of continuous stimulation.
The top black button instantly controls the non-stimulation tone feature.
ISS Dial controls stimulation levels. (Intensity Selector Switch) on the top right hand side of the transmitter. It allows for true one handed operation using your right or left hand. You can easily change the stimulation level with your thumb and also use your thumb to press any of the three buttons.
The "Dog Selector" dial is directly below the ISS dial which allows you to select between three color coded positions that match the three color strap colors (black, red and blue) if you decide to add more dogs to your system.
Another advantage to the Dog selector dial is that it allows you to set your transmitter on a higher level but still cut it off to avoid accidental corrections.
For example, if you have a dog that likes to chase other animals, cars or people in off leash situations, you will need to have your transmitter on a high level to stop him. Instead of leaving the dial set on the high level and have a chance to accidentally correcting him, use the dog selector dial to change over to another collar that you are not using. When you need to correct your dog simply change the Dog selector dial to the correct collar color and make the correction. After you are done, move the dial back to the other color and never worry about an additional correction.
The G3 transmitter uses a replaceable 9-volt battery. Some folks look at this as a bad thing, preferring a rechargeable transmitter, but we find that even the folks that use these transmitters every day get over six months of training from one battery. Average users can expect to get close to one year from a battery.
The transmitter features a low battery indicator that tells you when it's time to change it out. When the battery gets low the LED light on the transmitter will start to flash when you use the continuous or tone button. With a fresh battery the light will glow solid when you press these buttons.
The SPORT BASIC transmitter weighs 4.83 ounces, and is 5.5" tall X 2" wide X 1.75" deep.

Stimulation from the Tri-tronics SPORT BASIC
The Sport Basic is a versatile remote training collar and a good choice for all-around use with ten levels of continuous and momentary stimulation instantly selectable at the transmitter. This means that you can instantly adjust intensity whenever distractions increase.
Continuous stimulation allows you to control the length of the correction based on how long you hold the button down.
Momentary stimulation is designed for delivering a quick pre-set duration of stimulation (less than 1 second) for enforcing commands the dog already knows and for correcting behavior.
Ten intensity levels can be quickly adjusted with the dial on the side of the transmitter.
Teach yardwork/obedience and enforce known commands with lower levels of stimulation.
Use higher levels to stop unwanted chasing or to overcome strong distractions.
Tactile dial with clicks between levels allows you to raise and lower the stimulation level by feel without ever having to take you eyes off your dog.
Insulated contact points ensure consistent and reliable stimulation in the water
Comes with interchangeable contact points for long or short-coated dogs
The G3 versions of the Sport collars offer a wide choice of stimulation and work well for training even with more sensitive dogs.
Tri-tronics SPORT BASIC Range
Collar range up to 1/2 mile.
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 depends on training conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.
Remember, too much range will never hurt, but too little range can be a problem.
NOTE: The G3 collars feature a slightly different kind of continuous stimulation that will increase the systems ability to reach maximum distance in heavy cover and difficult terrain situations.
The Pulsating Continuous Stimulation on the G3 collars transforms the old style continuous stimulation from a single impulse to a rapid succession of pulses. Because this is a "broken" signal instead of a single transmission it does a better job of reaching the receiver at maximum distance.
The pulses are so rapid that it gives the feeling of the old style continuous stimulation but increases the transmitters ability to reach maximum distance.
Rugged, reliable, and good looking. This new product replaces our Sport 50, Sport 60, and Multi-Sport products. It has substantially more features and will sell for the same price, $266 (MSRP), as the Sport 50 and $20 less than the Sport 60, $288 (MSRP). The new product has 10 levels of momentary and 10 levels of continuous stimulation along with a tone sound. The Sport 50 only has 6 levels of momentary and continuous with no sound feature and the Sport 60 has only 6 levels of momentary and continuous.
The new product has the ability to control up to three dogs by simply purchasing additional receivers whereas the Sport 50 and Sport 60 only come in a single dog model. The tone sound can be used to condition the dog so that it responds in many instances to the tone sound without using any electrical stimulation.
Please note the new fixed antenna which is only 1 1/2" in length and the rubberized over molded grip. The Sport Basic is very simple to operate and is a perfect entry-level product. It is also a very reasonably priced way to have a 3-dog product.
