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.
Each dog has an independent STIM level, which makes fast corrections easier.
All in all, the DELTA XC is a great system.
See the DELTA SPORT XC if you need a system with a BARK COLLAR built right in with 36 different STIM levels.
Bird dog folks should also take a look at the Garmin/Tri-tronics DELTA UPLAND XC which has a remote location BEEPER and a BARK COLLAR.
I really like the changes that Garmin has made in the DELTA XC line. They have taken one of our best selling collars and made it even better.
Steve training ROXY with a 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.

Hunts. Family pet. Bought this product after much research to determine if this was the right route to go with my dog. To my knowledge I did the correct training protocols to make the transfer to an e-collar and found out it was the right choice. The product is amazing when used correctly. My main use for this product is boundary training (keeping my dog in the yard) and in my case, it worked flawlessly. Of course this all depends on the dog and the methods used to approach this training. Thank you Gun Dog Supply for providing me with a great product, fast shipping, great price, and overall a great experience!

Family pet. Amazing product. In just a short time I have been able to create a huge difference in our life. This product has a range level of 1-18. One time when he was really defiant, I had to go up to 5. Now, for the most part, vibrate is all I need to stop bad behavior. The next step is working on actual training. There has been a great improvement in coming when called, so I can't wait to have time to keep working on other commands. Some more detail: Our dog was on the edge of being turned into an outside dog because he was too hyper and destructive. He was also playfully aggressive, but to the point he would scare my young niece and nephew because of the jumping and scratching and not controlling his puppy biting behaviors. He hasn't been totally cured of these behaviors, but now a firm no, without even using the collar works for the most part, and this was after just a couple days of training. When he loses his mind a bit because of being excited company comes over, the most we need is a little reminder on a setting of 1 or 2, and he stays on the ground. If I had one small complaint, is that the product uses mini USB instead of micro-usb. I am the guy who doesn't buy products because they use different chargers, but this product is definitely worth making exceptions for.

By: Gwendolyn Sisto From ME
Competes. Incredible. His behavior was 100% corrected after the first session. The tone feature is perfect because all We really needed was an instantaneous and gentle reminder of his boundaries/training. I don't even need to use the stimulation feature as the tone is just the right sound to get his attention. The range is really a great feature as with other e-collars, he would just keep running until he was out of range. With this collar, I get excellent recall with him. Finally, the collar is very durable and doesn't easily come apart or fall off. Particularly due to the flexible plastic collar, my dog was able to dismantle cheaper collars, even cheap e-collars off while wearing them.. Blueticks are really smart.

Family pet. Everything about it seems fairly high quality. I like that there is no loss of functionality when adding a second dog. The remote is a little bulky, but it's very easy to use. The shock feature works far better than the previous two collars I have used. My dog is quite stubborn and can ignore other collars on their highest setting, but he responds quickly and reliably with the intensity set to 7 out of 18 with this one! The LCD screen with a battery indicator is also very nice, so that I don't have to guess how low it is.

Family pet. The Garmin Delta XC is our second electronic collar. Previously, we owned a PetSafe. Really love the Garmin because you have three options beep, vibrate and shock. Usually no need to shock if the beep doesn't work promptly. The vibrate only is enough to get him back. We have an interior lot, and he likes to explore the woods. Can't see where he is, so this gets him back to our view. It also worked great camping. He wore the collar when we were just relaxing on the site, and he didn't wonder. There was no need to have him tied up. What is different about the Garmin is that you cannot hear the beep, whereas the PetSafe I could, so I would have an idea where he was even if I couldn't see him. But the three options outweigh that. You won't regret this purchase and Gun Dog Supply got the order to us promptly. Great doing business with them also.

Family pet. Charlie is an affectionate but willful dog. He had been hoping to earn an Academy award for his portrayal of a deaf dog. He almost instantly figured out the trading collar and started to respond to verbal commands without hesitation. He also pays close attention to make sure he is doing the right thing. I am pleased with the Garmin collar. For a single dog the remote is very well laid out. With Charlie, I have used the Tone, Vibrate, Monentary stimulus mode exclusively, and it seems to be adequate. Although he wears it most of the day, he is eager to get it on in the morning (means he is going out). As shown in the video, which was very useful, I use the lowest effective level.

Family pet. I toyed between the Garmin Delta XC and the Garmin Tri Tronics Sport Pro. Both were suggestions from my trainer. We went with the Garmin Delta XC based on reviews and Steve's review, as we didn't need a bark collar. So far, I have been pleased with the collar. I like the smaller look of the collar, and the remote is easy to use. I also was impressed with the customer service I received as I had asked for a blue collar instead of a black one, so our doggie is more easily identifiable when we are out and about. Gun Dog Supply was extremely responsive about my request and sent the collar quickly. I will definitely order here again in the future!

Hunts. Family pet. Purchase this to replace ancient unit. Trusted and took Steve's recommendation. This collar took a really good 16 month old, 90lb puppy and turned him into a great dog. The 3 different training programs really worked for us. We use TCM at level 4. After first couple of T then C corrections and T, C then M's, we now only need the tone. BUT, having the option to kick it up immediately in a moment of crisis, and the unit's water resistant has taken us into the light from the dark ages. We take him everywhere with us, and this collar has helped us reconnect with him when his brain disconnects from our communication channels of sight and sound. Have recommended it to friend with 10 month old Rotti pup.

Family pet. I already had purchased one of these collars for our GS, but after buying a replacement charger for that collar from GDS, I was so impressed with your service and quality of care that I determined to buy a second collar for my mixed breed dog. The collar works well, and I was even happier that I received an instructional video in how best to use it. The first collar I bought from another company did not include a video or 15ft. lead, and that was unfortunate. I am more educated in how to use the collar now than I was with the first dog. Your personal touch in service (the signed letter) has made me a life-long customer. Other people I spoke with who also have made purchases through GDS were also impressed with your company. Way to go!! Customer service like it used to be! Expect more business from us and for referrals as well.

Family pet. So far it's been great. I like having the three buttons for different stimulations. The old Tri-Tronics required manual adjustment to switch from tone to jolt. The smaller size is good. I like the third option of vibration. Our collie is sensitive and rarely needs the jolt, but the vibration is a gentle step up. Haven't had it long enough to observe how long we can go between charges.

Hunts. Family pet. Bought to use with our newest pup. Our other training collar is a Tri Tronics G3 basic, and I really like how I was able to configure the buttons to the same pattern as the G3. This makes switching from one to the other a no brainer. Love how small the receiver is. I like how simple and intuitive the transmitter is to set up and use. I like that there are no dials to inadvertently move, something that has happened on the G3 (although rarely). Haven't used it hunting yet, but I don't expect any issues. It's been flawless in training our 7 month old so far, both in and out of water.

Family pet. The only thing about training a pet is that you have to be present at all times in order to be consistent in reminding the dog of bad behavior. :-) Otherwise, the collar works. I have to be more consistent and present while training him to stop running the fence line after cars and trucks.

Family pet. We had a trainer come give us a demo with the collar his company uses, which happens to be the Garmin XC. They wanted about a thousand dollars to train our dog. We decided to purchase the same collar and give it a go ourselves. Three days after we received the collar our dog was not pulling us around. She was heeling and sitting. Still a long way to go. It just takes persistence and time. Very happy with the results.

Family pet. The collar is easy to set up and start using. The dog responded well when he was focused on me, but I really had a hard time getting his attention even at higher levels when he had his mind on a scent or some other distraction. This is probably more due to my unfamiliarity of the workings of the collar in combination of the mindset of an older dog that had not been worked with as a puppy. We did not keep the dog, but I am keeping the collar for a future puppy.

Hunts. Family pet. I have to use long contacts. The curve of the new collar keeps the pins away from the dog. The old style collar had a raised spot on the back of the collar that put the pins closer to the dog's neck, so I could use the short pins.

Family pet. It works well, but I wish the collar stayed charged longer. Lasts about 1 week. I had gotten my dog when he was 3-4 yrs old, and it was obvious that his previous owner had used a shock collar on him, so he knows when the collar has lost its charge.

Customer Review #23224
By: Andrew From WA
Family pet. This e-collar was extremely effective in putting the finishing touches on training my dog to come when called. When I began working with the Garmin collar, I had spent about 13 months using only positive reinforcement training. The introduction of a little corrective training was like magic. I used only the lower settings. And I only had to use the electrical stimulation a few times before the vibration got my dog's attention sufficiently. The biggest downside of this product is the charging piece. The collar unit requires both a plug AND a *separate* clip-on adaptor. To me this seems to create the danger of losing the clip-on piece. I'd rather see a single charging unit. This design is the only reason that I'm giving this device 4-stars instead of 5. Lastly, my unit shipped with a long leash and training DVD. I don't have a DVD player (I watch the video online). But, it was really nice that the unit came with a long leash because the video teaches that beginning with a long leash is an important part of training recall. It was great to have that tool on hand.

"I would rate it 5 stars if the tone was louder."
By: Jonathan Hood From LA
Siberian Husky. Family pet. 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.

Catahoula. Family pet. When looking for a collar I wanted one with a tone cue and also a light to find my puppy at night. This one did not have the light option but did have the tone. I like this set up with the three button option of signals to give. I can usually get a recall with the tone and do not need to use vibration, but if chasing something then the extra signal is nice to have in emergency. My voice does not carry well and the tone gives clear signal of what is expected. The blinking green light on the collar gives a little visibility at night to find him on the farm. Easy to read screen with large numbers helps as well.

Family pet. Competes. In the right hands, this is a very good product. I am glad to see that you include a DVD on training and how to adjust the different levels of stimulation. I am an accomplished trainer competing in obedience and rally trials. However, in the wrong hands, this product could be devastating to the dog. I am only at level 3 and it is quite sufficient to control a head strong Doberman.

By: Elise McClintick From NC
Competes. My Champion Great Dane developed a lick granuloma on his rear hock. I'm a stay at home 'dog Mom', and this collar was a last ditch resort. What gave me the idea is there is a product out there called Stop Lick that is applied like a bandage. It provides a little charge when the dog licks it. Well, that might have worked, but it never stayed on. Neither did a special custom made bandage exactly measured for his hock; neither did doggie prozac or xanax or bitter apple or 5 million NO LICK admonishments from me. In fact, I'm convinced Jack thought his name had been changed to NO. So...I purchased the electronic collar. He's worn a No bark collar, so Jack wasn't suspicious of the new collar. I hit the Tone button set on 8 a few times as he started to lick. Then if he went for one more lick, I hit the vibrate button. So far, so good. It's been about two weeks and his hock is healing nicely. He has not had a charge off the collar...yet. Danes are relatively smart dogs. The Tone stops him for now. Will keep you posted.

Hunts. It is a great collar and I would recommend it to others. For us, unfortunately we are having trouble finding any collar that will make consistent contact with our German Shepard/Husky mix's neck. And yes we are using the longer contact points but it does not always have contact with his skin and therefore only the tone and vibration are available for use at very critical times when an actual shock is needed.

German Shepherd. Family pet. Love the service, but the collar doesn't meet expectations. Even with the longer contacts, and a collar tightened to the point of choking, it still slips around the throat, meaning at times no contact when it's needed most, and a training moment is not only lost, but because of lack of consistency, may also have negative implications. It did not take long for mt dog to recognize if I didn't have the remote in my hand, nothing adverse was going to happen. Otherwise, a pretty good product, but because of lack of reliability, can't tell if it works at distance or not.

Hunts. An okay collar, but not great. It was cheaper than most, but requires too much time holding buttons to boost the charge being given. I keep the charge on zero to avoid accidental discharge to the dog. If you have time and want to set the dog up for learning a command, it's probably okay. For use in the field while hunting, I would not recommend it.

The manual is poor and incomplete (for instance in switching colors it does not say you have to hold the button down vs. just pushing it). The collar-units and controls were not paired as stated in the manual. We have used the collars only a few times to date, the strength settings need to be set high in order to be effective. Not as good as other units we have used.

Family pet. This collar isn't working for us as a training tool for obedience. It may be because my dog's dense cottony coat results in inconsistent stimulation intensity despite have the e-collar on tight with long prongs installed. Consequently, there is some confusion and my dog is less enthusiastic about training sessions. He's much better with treats alone. I will probably just use it with avoidance training to help my dog learn not to go into horse stalls. The video that came with the collar is great, but I think that ultimately, e-collar conditioning might work better for us with direct professional guidance.
