Family pet. This is by far the most versatile, trustworthy and reliable system I have owned. I let my dogs range at night and early in the morning. Early training required the use of a beep and a shock. The units versatility allowed me to add a beep and a vibration instead of a shock to get the response I needed. At night, the flashlight option comes in handy. Trustworthy to three quarters of a mile in a neighborhood,. An added bonus is the barking limiter. All this In one collar. Easily worth the money in the long run, especially if you want to protect your dog.

Hunts. Family pet. It has taken me a little while to get acquainted with this model. I had the old pro 500 for a number of years. This one is lighter, and I really like it. I will keep it!!

Family pet. I have a bullmastiff that came to us by way of a relative not being able to keep him. He is not mean but determined. He would take off on his own. Walks around the farm and beyond. The collar got his immediate attention. I put the collar on, and I seldom have to use it. He knows when I call to come now.

I love this product! It's a must have when you have a young dog and your time to work with him is limited. You can get their attention quickly and get the most out of your work time, without being cruel or harsh. I would recommend it to a friend.

Works as well or better than our previous Garmin Pro training collar. No issues with both dogs swimming multiple times a day in the pool or pond. The charge is long lasting and the charging connectors are better than the previous generation. The buzz, tone and light features are handy compared to the previous generation tone only option.

Customer Review #12655
By: Dan Miller From TX
Hunts. Competes. Tri-Tronics is a product that I have used for 35 years. Made a mistake and bought a Sport Dog when I had two new dogs to train since my tri-tronics collar needed new batteries and were no longer made for my A-70. I purchased the Sport Dog since it was small and the reviews seemed to fit my needs. Surprise, this is not a very good product, and the Sport Dog I would not recommend for anyone wanting to seriously train a dog. Very disappointed with the Sport Dog Collar and have only used a few times, and now it is in my not used box. I purchased my new Tri-Tronics collar from Steve only because of the level of service I have received for many years and recommend his company above all others. My mistake was buying a Sport Dog and not staying with a product that I had used for many years. Thanks, Dan Miller, Alamo Sporting Dogs.

"Great new product"

Hunts. Competes. Great new product, similar to the Tri Tronics Flyway series. Easy to use, built in bark collar is great, and addition of collar light fantastic when location your dog in low light situations. I have used other collars and none have provided the ease of use, adjustability and ease in training situations that this unit has.

"Works wonderfully for my dogs."
By: W. Wood From MN
Hunts. Family pet. Works wonderfully for my dogs. I have used this for several weeks now and love the ability to send a 'Tone' to each dog followed up by a Vibration and/or Stimulation. For my dogs, I rarely get to stimulation before they respond to commands. Another beautiful feature are the LED lights on the collar that can be turned on and off for each dog from the handheld device. I am out with the dogs very often after dark and provides a good visual for me and others. The collars also double as a bark collar which works well and supplies me with an indication as to if and how many corrections the dogs received when in bark mode. If you can swing the price, this is a great device.

Family pet. This is an expensive unit. However, I got tired of buying others that coned out the first year, and I could not replace the batteries. This absolutely is the easiest to train your dog with, and it includes a light to use at night. It's worth twice the money so far, and all batteries can be replaced if they stop holding a charge.

"Everything works great."
By: Jason Slaven From OR
Family pet. Everything works great. It has really helped calm down both dogs and even though they still run the fence line with dogs on the other side, they are no longer barking. The only thing I wished this product had is the ability to leave the collar on the bark setting and still use the handheld unit. Other than that it is a great product, and we love it very much.

English setters. Hunts. Steve, This is my forth Tri-tronics, 2 dog collar, beginning with my first collar in the 70's, then a G-2 and a G-3. There are several things that I like about the Pro 550. The lighter weight, The sound of the tone, the vibration setting. I particularly like the remote control beacon lights as I live in the mountains of Colorado, at 9,000ft. and walk my setters in the dark and the pre-dawn light Thanks again for getting the collar to me so quickly. I will be placing another order in the morning and calling you soon to talk about remote control bird launchers
