Many folks are looking to work two or more-dogs at the same time with the convenience of only needing one transmitter. This can be done with a multi-dog collar. We sell two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine-dog systems.
A multi-dog system allows you to correct the individual-dog by selecting him with either a toggle switch or the transmitter will have separate buttons for each-dog.
You will only correct one-dog at a time and you can not correct all the-dogs at the same time.
Multi-dog systems are easy to use with very little effort. The main goal is to keep from accidentally stimulating the wrong-dog.
To keep up with which-dog is which, the collars come in different colors and the transmitters match up with the color at the transmitter.
I have a simple system that helps me keep up with which-dog is wearing which collar. First, I always keep the same collar on the same-dog. Next, I always put the "hotter" color collar strap (normally red or orange on most brands) on the-dog more likely to need a correction. I put the cooler color collar strap (green, black, or blue on most brands) on the-dog less likely to need a correction. This way my mind knows who is who.
On systems that use a toggle switch to change collar selections, I always keep the toggle switch on the "hot"-dog that will likely need to be corrected first.
If I have to correct the "cool"-dog then I know that I must first change the toggle switch before I correct the-dog. After I am done correcting the "cool"-dog I always put the switch back on the "hot"-dog. This way I always know which-dog the switch is set on without having to look at the transmitter.
Another problem with multi-dog units is that most times your-dogs will need different levels for the exact same behavior (say not coming when called --dog one might need a 3 while-dog two only needs a 1).
Most multi-dog units use the same intensity level selector dial for both-dogs. That means if you have your collar set on a high level for your "tough"-dog, you will need to lower the level before you correct your "sensitive"-dog.
I tend to keep my multi-dog collars set on lower levels and I raise them as needed. When I am done with the high level correction, I immediately lower the stimulation level. I would rather under stimulate a-dog that requires a high level than over stimulate a-dog that needs a low level. I also like to know what level I am on at all times so I always go back to my preset level when I am done with a higher level correction.Multi-dog Collars under $300
