    Great For Retriever Training
    July 31, 2020
    I've been using the Pro 550 since it came out and have very pleased with it. It's a great system for retriever training, Easy to use and very dependable. Includes nice features such as the Bark Limiter option and Beacon Lights
    Pros
    • Ease of use and 21 levels of continuous and momentary stimulation, vibration, and tone.

    Great Quality product
    March 24, 2023
    After adding a second dog I wanted a quality product that I could trust. Previously I had a different brand e-collar/trainer and it lost the lower stims. We also found that it was malfunctioning and giving stims randomly.

    After lots of research Garmin was my decision. I chose this particular model based on budget, versatility, reviews, range and quality. This model is easy to adapt to, has different level settings for the dogs. I like the fact you can use tone, vibration, and different stim levels.
    Pros
    • Different stim level settings for the dogs
    • Tone, vibration and stim options
    • Light on color to easily locate dog at low or no light
    • 1-3 dogs can be added
    • Color coded for ease of use
    • Built in bark limiter(really nice I did not have to buy additional collars)
    • Lightweight and easy to use on smaller size dogs
    Cons
    • You cannot call back all collars at once. You can only call back one at a time.

    Ordered this collar for training and it is awesome works well with everything I have thrown at it plus the bark collar feature really helps keep the kennel quiet

    Perfect Training Tool
    August 17, 2022
    This is our second collar. We wore the old one out with two hunting dogs. We now have a Spinone Italiano hunting dog and we are using the new Garmin 550.
    Pros
    • Easy to use and the "beep" capability eventually becomes the signal. No shocking necessary. OK, sometimes.
    Cons
    • Hmm. None

    So far so good
    February 2, 2022
    Haven’t had this system for long but so far I like it for training. I don’t use it when I’m guiding hunts because the controller is too big. I use the Pro Sport for that. I have trained several dogs with the pro sport but this one seems to have much more and better stimulation. Again I haven’t had it very long so don’t know how it will hold up for the long term but if it’s anything like the Pro Sport then it will be good for years.
    Pros
    • Many levels of stimulation
    Cons
    • Controller is too big to use while hunting, for me

    Great training collar
    February 2, 2022
    I love the Garmin Pro 550. All the options I need. I like that I can simply use the audible beep to get my dog’s attention without shocking or buzzing him. I don’t use the bark limiter feature. Tried it once and it ramped up too fast and gave my dog way too much stimulation and scared him more than made him stop barking. I only replaced my last 550 because we lost the handheld. Now I have two collars which I can use simultaneously with a single handset. I also love the running light
    Pros
    • Audible beep option
    • Running light
    Cons
    • Hard to find in stock

    Very nice unit. Easy to use. Battery life is very good.
    Pros
    • Battery life
    • User friendly
    Cons
    • 3/4? collar, you have to have it pretty tight.
    • Switches are hard to flip with gloves on.

    Garmin Tri-Tronics Pro 550 Review
    October 1, 2020
    It is a pleasure to write a review for Gun Dog Supply. I have bought several items from Gun Dog Supply. I have found their company and personnel very helpful when I have called them to help make a purchasing decision or to change a purchase.

    I have had several tri-tronic collars over the years. We got our new pup Kota, back in March. He was a planned purchase not a Covid dog to replace another Labrador that had passed earlier in the year. Years ago, I was an avid waterfowl hunter and had always relied on Tri-Tronics. For me and my family a finished dog in the house is a trained dog. My old Tri-Tronic collar unit had a closed battery which is no longer replaceable. I talked to a friend who runs trials and hunt tests and he suggested I talk with Gun Dog and to look at the 550. So far we have not been disappointed. Kota had come to the point of challenging me and the family, by looking at us when given a command. So a collar was the next step in training. Funny how a dog responds with a sound or a nudge. We have had the collar for several weeks and train everyday in the house and outside for a well mannered dog and for hunting. With the new pup, and now a new e collar I have a renewed interest in training for trials and waterfowl hunting.
    Pros
    • Very easy to use and dial in to the correct baseline.
    • Long battery life.
    • Ability to control the dog while he is off leash in the yard.
    • The video is pretty comprehensive for basic e collar training.
    • Ability to train for correction at a distance.
    Cons
    • It is a more expensive unit, however you may not need the distance of this unit.

    Great Three-Dog System
    April 30, 2023
    While not a hunter nor field training our three large doodles, we've used e-collars to help keep track of everyone on our property.

    This is a meaningful upgrade vs. an older Delta Sport and is working well with our pack.
    Pros
    • Three dogs
    • Simple controller
    • The tone gets our dogs attention
    • Collar light
    • Controller long battery life.
    Cons
    • Collar units a a bit bigger vs. our previous Garmin, but feature-packed.

    Great E-Collar
    December 23, 2022
    Great collar! Collars are nice and work as should. Handheld Reciever is well built, but not too heavy. Only issues I have is, I wish the beeper button could be used for vibrate instead of beeper. I train retrievers and do not use the beeper at all. I also keep bumping the toggle and changing the selected dog. I wish you could lock the dog in use so this wouldn't happen. Overall great product! GDS is second to none great company! Great people!! And customer service second to none!!!
    Pros
    • Works great.
    • Nicely built.
    • Not too heavy.
    • Comfortable in hand.
    • Buttons nicely configured.
    Cons
    • Wish the beeper button could be used as vibrate. Would like to be able to lock the dog selector switch.

    Good unit, but...
    December 17, 2022
    The controller is fine, with lots of options for sending a message to the dog. But if I had to buy another unit, I would shop for one that has a wider collar, like the old Tri-Tronics. The new collar is 1/2 inch wide, whereas the old one was 3/4. The problem I am having is I have a hard charging dog and when she races to the bumper or bird she dips her head to pick up the bumper and sometimes the collar twists around. I have cinched it up tightly, but you can't choke the dog. Never had any problems with the 3/4 inch collar. Can't give it a higher rating because of the collar strap.
    Cons
    • collar strap is too narrow at 1/2 inch.

    Overall great product but could use a few tweaks
    December 2, 2022
    So far very happy and overall easy to use. Product registration on garmin express was difficult to do but since this isn’t a GPS device it is not necessary. The only major gripe I have is the small metal toggle switches. I live in a cold climate and have to wear heavy gloves while using this controller. The placement and design of the toggles get caught on my gloves and moved to different settings. This seems like a minor thing but it does have an impact upon cold weather use. This does not prevent me from using this and I would purchase again.

    Best training collar
    November 28, 2022
    This E collar is the best I have tried. My dog trainer recommends it for all the clinics. It has been both easy to use and very effective. There are many levels to choose from as well as the beep and the vibrate. The quality is far better than others!
    Pros
    • Ease of use, quality
    Cons
    • With smaller hands, i cannot use all the controls with one hand but that is not a major concern.

    Excellent training tool
    November 22, 2022
    Really like this set-up for training our 6mo-old female Draaht. I know the "expert opinions" are mixed on using an e-collar for a dog her age, but she is a very smart and driven pup... and a family, indoor dog first day-in-day-out. With a 2yo toddler, having a good household canine "citizen" is a must. Tried to avoid a collar as long as possible with Tippet, but wish I would've listened to my inner-voice and got this on her sooner. Have used an older sportdog trainer on our 12yo wirehair for years, but the transmitter finally gave up the ghost this year. Had already made the investment into a tt15x / 200i system earlier this summer for hunting/camping with the two dogs (because anyone who's ever had a beloved family member and hunter wander off for a few hours knows how gut-wrenching it is), but using a tt15x in the house is OVERKILL. The 550 pro is perfect for daily use. Charge lasts a long time, light led function is surprisingly useful for morning/evening exercise as the days have gotten shorter, and the ergonomics of the remote are simple and highly functional - particularly for a two dog set-up . The bark-limiter functionality has also cut down on excessive crate-bark tremendously. I actually like the layout of the 550 pro so much that I'm considering phasing out the alpha 200i and picking up a 550 plus for primary use in the field with the tt15x.
    I would NEVER got back to my old sportdog now.
    Oh, and for what it's worth, the pup's house manners have improved tremendously. Saved a lot of spousal tension and my sanity.

    ALL THE FEATURES I WAS INTERESTED IN
    October 6, 2022
    Please use the training video that accompanies this product - you will be doing your puppy / companion a great service. this product has all the features i was looking for in an ecollar, the decision maker for me was the auto bark feature. the ability to have that reinforcement for the puppy while i am away or at work has made a great difference. my puppy has responded positively because i was able to correct my training behavior through the video training guide, a very useful product.

    The Best Could Use Some Improvement
    July 5, 2022
    Garmin got this one mostly right. They missed the mark on a few things, but for me, this is the best solution available. The things that should be changed, in order of priority.

    1. The collar selection toggle needs to be a different switch type. It is currently exactly the same switch as the mode selector. EASILY confused.
    2. Correction level increments are much too great from 2(barely perceivable) to 4(too hot to hold on to).
    3. The charging port on the transmitter, with the rubber cover, needs to be redesigned. The charging connectors for the collars is excellent. Why not use the same style? The charging cable daisy-chain is a poor excuse for a proper system. Obviously done to control costs.
    4. The antenna needs to be replaceable.
    5. The Bark Limiter progressive correction algorithm needs to be the same as in the Sport Pro.
    I had to replace my Tri-Tronics Pro-100 2 dog system after 22 years because the Transmitter stopped working. It was a much higher quality unit(for its time)
    6. The tone button's rubber boot is cheesy and I feel will fail in short order.

    This unit, like most other things designed today, has a much shorter expected service life than its pre-Garmin Tri-Tronics predecessor. They got most of it right and still the best unit available for the money.
    Pros
    • Long battery life
    • Light-weight transmitter and collars
    • Long range
    • 2 button system for instant access to 3 stimulation levels.
    • Reasonable price for the features
    Cons
    • 6 listed in the review and comments.

    Excellent Product and the free video is extremely helpful for training too!
    Pros
    • Great product, affordable, easy to use, has many options and has a more extended range than most e-collars.
    Cons
    • The beep tone is a lower pitch and only a single beep instead of a higher pitch and two beeps like our old Tri Tronics G-2 Sport model we had with our last two French Brittany's.

    Control the uncontrollable!
    May 17, 2022
    I’ll start by saying that we don’t have hunting dogs, however we have a pair of high strung Dalmatians! We also have a yard full of rabbits. The dogs go nuts every time they eye up a rabbit and the collar helps us make corrections in an instant and from a distance. So fat ese have only needed to use the tone and buzz for 90% of corrections and handful of electric corrections.

    A note about Gun Dog Supply: I was impressed with the original order but what blew my socks off was when we needed a replacement part. One of the chargers stopped working for whatever reason one week after we got it. Without question we were sent a new charger and we are back in business. That’s level of service is so rare these days! So refreshing!

    Even if you don’t buy this exact collar, be sure to buy here. If you’re on the fence about what to buy, give them a call and someone will help you with a selection!

    April 23, 2022
    I recommend this System because of the versatility , when traveling for Field trials i usually feed and air early AM and use the light option, the finger tip controls and levels are great. If you have working dogs and need a long range , good in the water training system.....look at this one!

    Pros
    • Versatile
    Cons
    • none that i know of

    Garmin Tri-Tronics PRO 550 E Collar
    April 8, 2022
    For me its the best training collar hands down because you can immediately change the intensity from the transmitter without needing to look down, move your hand, and turn a dial. Instead you just use the two buttons at your finger tips.

    I also like the bark collar mode and the light you can turn in the collar. I live on 20 acres in the country and with the light on you can easily see where your dog is in the dark.
    Pros
    • Reliability and ease of use. i've used this unit for years trouble free and just bought a new unit for my son who is now training his own dog.
    Cons
    • none

    Very effective training collar. I rarely need to go above 3 to get focus.
    Pros
    • Plenty of power and battery life.
    • Buttons are easy to use.
    Cons
    • The audible volume is for dog only, I was hoping it would be loud enough to locate dog in heavy cover.
    • The power/vibrate controls are not convenient for switching during training.

    February 3, 2022
    For training the dog, the 550 pro is perfect. It is direct, and easy to go up and down on the stim dial as needed. No need to wait for a gps signal, we love the bark limiter option, and when out hunting, this model accepts a beeper.
    Pros
    • Very user friendly
    Cons
    • None

    Helps our boys listen
    February 2, 2022
    We have used these collars on all our pups. The beep reminds them of what they are supposed to be doing Very good product. It is really nice because you can beep and not punish the behavior unless more re-enforcement is needed . Charges quick and batteries lasts a could days.
    Pros
    • Can use on low shock or vibrate
    • Works on up to three dogs
    • Light on collar helps to see where the dogs are in the dark
