    Garmin PRO 550

    Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE

    One hour of BASIC OBEDIENCE training
    from Pro Trainer Robin MacFarlane.



    The Pro 550 is a training collar only. If you are looking for a similar training system that also has GPS tracking, check out the Garmin Pro 550 PLUS.

    "Take the best collar we sell, the Pro 500, add built-in beacon lights and a bark collar, then add 3 more STIM levels to the top end, add vibration, and then knock $110 off the price. That's the new Pro 550."

    The PRO 550 is the perfect training collar for folks looking for a system that has it all.

    Like the other two Pro Series collars, it has built in BEACON LIGHTS and a BARK LIMITER.

    Both Kinds of STIM:

    Gone are the days of having to pick between more momentary or more continuous. The PRO 550 has it all and at a substantially lower retail price.

    Tone and Vibration:

    The Garmin PRO 550 is the first Tri-Tronics tube unit to include vibration selectable from the transmitter with the V on the dial.

    More STIM levels:

    The PRO 550 is a 21 level training collar. The smooth transition between stimulation levels allows you to gradually increase stimulation and find the exact level that your dog needs. The three new levels at the top make sure you have enough top-end to train even the highest-intensity dogs.

    The PRO 550 replaces the Field 90, Flyway Special, Pro 100, Pro 200, Pro 500 and the Upland Special.



    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    This is the Garmin Tri-Tronics Pro 550. Garmin has introduced their versions of the Tri-Tronics Pro line. It's a continuation of what Tri-Tronics has been doing about the last decade with the G2, G2 EXP, and G3 collars. The Garmin Pro 550 is the top of the line, combining all of the features that we've had in the Pro 500 plus a bunch of new things that make it a top of the line remote training collar.

    New features on the Garmin Pro 550 include beacon lights, bark limiter built into the collar, a higher level of stim, giving us 21 total levels of continuous and momentary, plus vibration. Vibration is in addition to the tone that the Pro 500 already had, so now you have two different kinds of non-stimulation that you can use to communicate with your dog.

    The Pro 550 is a 21 level collar that has both continuous and momentary stimulation. The way the 550 works is that you have two black buttons that are designed for your stimulation. When your dial is on Level 1, your lower black button is a low. Your upper black button is a medium. And then you press the two buttons together for a high. So, on Level 1, you have a low 1, a medium 1, and then a high 1. You then turn your dial to 2 and low 2, medium 2, high 2. What this is, this is a gradual increase in stimulation levels. And so, a high 1 is lower than a low 2. That's where the 21 comes from. It is seven stimulation levels with a low, medium, and high of each. So it gradually increases up to the top level. So you can tune it in perfectly to what your dog needs for the right stimulation level, depending on what type of training you are doing and for the distraction level.

    This is a very gradual increase. The advantage there is that you're going to be able to just find that right level that's going to make your dog…he will be able to feel it and understand it and respond but not overreact. And so, depending on your situation, you are going to be able to just tune into that exact level. That's the biggest advantage, in my opinion, of the 550, is that gradual increase allows you to just hone in on that perfect level for your dog.

    Folks that are familiar with the Garmin tubes will see that there is just little difference in the Garmin tubes compared to the Tri-Tronics G3 tubes. Size and feel are identical. Little bit lighter because the lithium ion batteries. But the real beauty of the tubes is that they fit in your hand and they are easy to use without looking at the transmitter. In my opinion, that's the most important thing about a remote training collar. I want to be able to raise stimulation levels, lower them, and never once have to look at the collar. I want to be able to use tone, change to a different dog, change kinds of stimulation, go back to continuous, never once have to look at it. That's the big advantage of the tube style transmitters.

    Now let's take a look at the transmitter, go over the different parts. You've got your antenna. You've got your stimulation dial. The dial starts on a V and then goes Levels 1-7. On the front of your transmitter, you have your green button, which is tone. Then you have your toggle switch for Dogs 1, 2, and 3. So it's black, red, and blue. Your next toggle switch controls the different kinds of stimulation. You have momentary up and then continuous down. And then, in the middle, you have the A position, which the A position controls both your lights and it also controls the accessory beeper if you decide to add it. Then you have your two stimulation buttons. Your bottom button is low. Your upper button is medium. And then you press the two together for high.

    Now let's take a look at the Pro 550 collar. The collar design is similar to what we have had, but it is smaller. It also uses a three-quarter inch collar strap, so on a smaller dog it's not going to look as big. Most of the systems nowadays have moved to three-quarter straps, and even with a large dog they are very normal. So we've gotten used to them over time. It may seem a little different if you are used to one-inch straps, but I've been pleased with them overall.

    On the collar you have your contact points. Contact points are removable. You can add the longer probes, which are included, or the short probes, which come with it. You have your indicator light on the front of the collar. And then you have your beacon lights on the front of the collar which are controlled from the transmitter, and your on/off switch.

    On the back of the collar you have your charging point. This hooks up to the charging adapter. One of the differences is that they've added additional loops on the bottom of the collar so that it holds your strap in just a little tighter.

    Let's take a look at one of the new features on the Pro 550, the beacon lights. Built into the collar are two lights on each side of the front here. On your transmitter you can turn them on. These are great for folks that are running dogs late in the evening. They've been real popular with coon hunters that are running dogs at night. Great for a pet owner that's walking their dog in the neighborhood at night.

    Real simple to turn on. You can turn them on and off from the transmitter. Take your dial, put it on the A position, which is for the accessories. And then it doesn't matter what stim level you are on. Your two black buttons control the light. Your upper black button turns them on. Your lower button turns them off. This works at any distance that the collar can communicate with the transmitter. So, lights on, lights off. You are going to have a little bit of battery drain. So keep that in mind if you are using the beacon lights on a regular basis. But it is really not that substantial. If you are charging your collar on a regular basis, it should not be an issue. Really nice feature built in. This is something now that, in the past, you add to add to your collars. Now it's just a regular part of the collar. It's just built into it.

    Let's talk about the Pro 550 bark collar. You can take your 550 collar and you can turn it into a bark collar. It is not a remote activated bark collar in that the transmitter has nothing to do with the bark collar. You have to have your hands on the collar to turn it into a bark collar. For most of us that's going to be great. There are not a lot of situations where you need a remote bark collar turned on. So this is just an added feature where you can take your collar and turn it into a bark collar.

    Turning it into a bark collar is pretty simple. You are going to hold down the on/off switch and watch the light on the collar. It will go red to blue. When it turns blue, you lift off the button. Now it is in bark collar mode. We'll take our transmitter here just to show that we are getting nothing, not stim, nothing. Transmitter does not work at all with the collar when it is in bark mode. You need to keep that in mind, because you don't want to put it on your dog when you are trying to use it as a remote collar in bark mode. You've got to take it out of bark mode. Pretty simple to take it out of bark mode. Hold the button down again. Light glows read, you release it. Cuts it off. When you cut it back on, now we are back into regular collar mode, and now we've got control over stim from the transmitter.

    The bark collar is the auto rise bark collar which Garmin is now using with all of their bark collars plus the bark collars that we have on the Delta units of the Delta Sport. Auto rise works for some people in some situations. There are certain situations where I recommend against it. So you've gotta kinda understand your dogs and how they react to bark collars as to whether or not you are going to be happy with the auto rise feature.

    What the auto rise does is it starts on the lowest level. When the dog barks, it corrects him on that level. If he barks again, then it increases the stimulation level. What it does is it gradually increases the level until it finds the right level for your dog to get him to stop barking. After it has reached that level, then it starts to gradually step levels down so that the level gets lowered. If he barks again, he's going to get a lower level. If he continues to bark, it's going to gradually increase.

    The vast majority of my dogs work fine with this type of bark collar as far as one that gradually increase stimulation. But my really hard barking dogs, it is not an effective way to stop them from barking. What can happen with a dog that is just tough and takes a really high level of stim is that he's going to bark a bunch until he gets to that top level, and then he's going to back off for a little bit, let the collar lower stim, and he's going to start barking again. So if you've got situations where you want a really high stim level immediately when the dog barks, this is not the right bark collar for you. If you've got a dog that understands how bark collars work and is not really a major nuisance barker, this is going to work great for you and it's a nice feature. But if you've got that tough dog that just requires a high stim level on a bark collar, this isn't the right one for you.

    The Pro 550 is an expandable collar. What that means is you can buy it as a one dog system and then come back later and add a second or a third collar to it for a total of three dogs. To add the second collar, it comes with a red strap, your dog selector toggle switch. Black is the 1 Dog. We're going to go to the second dog, which is red. And then to sync up the two, you hold down your on/off button. It's going to be green, blue, and then it's going to go to yellow. And then you'll hear a little sound. It beeps at you several times when it's on. You release the button and it's going to cut off. Now it's back on. And now we've got stim. So we've got Dog 1 in the black. And then we've got Dog 2 in the red. And then, if you decide to add a third dog, you just come back with a blue collar and do the same thing.

    Now that we've got two collars synced up, let's look at the beacon lights again. The toggle switch is on A. We're on Dog 1. Upper light turns the beacon lights on. Now we move to Dog 2. Upper light turns the beacon lights on. They're independent of each other, so if you want to turn off that dog but leave this dog on, you can do that. You can come back and turn that dog back on. Then you can turn that dog off. Go back, turn them both off.

    The Pro 550 is a one-mile range collar. What that means is that the effective range of the system is one mile line of sight. One mile line of sight means that there is nothing between you and the dog. Most situations that's not going to happen. So you are not going to get the maximum range all of the time. But you've got to keep in mind that one mile is a long way. The majority of us, our dogs are never that far away from us. Having a collar that has a little more stimulation range than your average collar, it's a good thing. My birddogs tend to run 250-500 yards, depending on what's going on. So having a collar like this allows me to stretch out. And it's powerful enough that it can get to a dog at that kind of distance quite easily. You will get the maximum range in certain situations, but you've got to keep in mind there's all sorts of things that are going to affect that radio signal.

    The Pro 550 uses lithium ion batteries. Let's talk a little about charge time and runtime. Runtime on the 550 is listed as 80 hours on the transmitter and 60 hours on the collar. The 80 hours on the transmitter, that's a hard number to determine, because it really is going to come down to how much you are pressing buttons. There is no off position on the transmitter, so when you are not pressing a button, it's not using any juice. It's not one of those things where you are going to have to charge it…You can go weeks without charging the handheld. But when I am charging the collar, I tend to go on ahead and charge the handheld. That way I don't have to worry about it.

    The collar is going to run for 60 hours on a complete charge. If you are using it heavily, that would be 8-10 hours a day, charging it once a week for most people is going to be fine. What's great about these batteries, though, is that you can't overcharge them. So if you want to charge it every time you use it, that's fine. It's not going to be a problem.

    Now let's talk about the charger and how to put it together. It's a traditional Garmin charger, so you've got several parts to it. When it comes out of the box, you've got to attach your 110 plug. This is the part that plugs into the wall. We'll plug it over here into our multi-plug. Then you've got a splitter. The splitter plugs in. And then for your collar, you've got your adapter. So that plugs in here. So that's all of that.

    To connect to the collar, here is your charging point. This snaps on. The light is going to be red while it's charging. When it's finished it will turn green. And then, on the transmitter, this is something that's new. Instead of having a cradle for it, you lift the mud flap on the back and you plug straight into it. I'm pretty happy about this change in the Pro units. There were two different cradles that came with the older models. The G2 had one style, and then when they went to the G3 it was a different style. Neither one of them was that good. You really don't have an issue here. This is pretty much the same design that we've had on the Astro and the Alpha, and it is very typical of what Garmin does. It's going to hold up great and it's going to be a lot easier to deal with than the cradles that we've had in the past, so pretty pleased with that. Same thing here. You are going to have your red light while it's charging. And then when it is finished charging, it will glow green. They have the same trickle charge concepts that we've had in the past, so you can leave them on the charger after they're done. It's not going to be a problem. There's just no advantage to it. Once it's through charging, I recommend that you take it off the charger.

    Let's talk about a few ways to carry your transmitter. A lot of people just like to carry them loose, which is fine. For years people stuck them in their back pocket. And that's great, but it's a good way to lose your transmitter. And we'll be glad to sell you a replacement transmitter, but they are not cheap. So I recommend that you tether it to your body in some way. The design on these is so similar to what we've had before that all of the old G3 transmitter holsters work with the new transmitter. This one, when you buy a system from us, you can buy this one for $1. It's just a traditional four-way holster. Slide this in here real quick. Then it snaps over. This gives you a hand grip. You can also use it as a belt loop. There's a belt loop. It also comes with a strap so you can wear it over your shoulder; several different ways.

    A lot of folks don't like to have a holster, which is fine. One of the newer things that's been done is that they have added a spot for you to actually tie a lanyard onto the transmitter. Probably one of my biggest complaints about the G3 units was that there was no way to tether yourself to it. You couldn't tie a lanyard to it or a snap, anything. It just didn't have anywhere that was easy to connect to it. So now they put a lanyard attachment on it, which is great. Take you a lanyard here, slide it through. You can do this with almost anything that's going to fit through it. It's a nice big port, so it's going to hold. I'm not a giant fan of wearing them around your neck right this, but a lot of people are. Now you've got a way to do it. It's going to work with a vast majority of the lanyards out there.

    Now let’s look at one other thing. Garmin sells what's called a lanyard karabiner. This is not included. It's something extra that you can buy. I've been using them with an Alpha for a while and they are really neat. I'm very happy that you can use them now on the Pro 550's. You take this strap. You slide it through. And you feed it back through here. Then you take your karabiner and there you go. Now you've got this clip. What I will do with this is I'm going to attach this to my belt loop, and now I've got it where it's easy access. But when I'm through with it and just drop it, it's still going to be there. So, pretty happy about that. That's a nice new feature.

    I couldn't be more happy with how this Pro 550 has turned out. Garmin took everything that was good about the Tri-Tronics Pro 500 and has added a bunch of stuff to it and drastically lowered the retail price. So you can get the best collar now for about $110 less than you could buy the Pro 500.

    Garmin PRO 550 Overview:

      The Garmin Pro 550 is an improved version of the Tri-Tronics PRO 500 G3, and is a direct descendent of the 500 Lite/LS/XLS Pro series collars which professional and serious amateur trainers have relied upon for years. This top of the line model is an extremely versatile remote training collar that is right for any breed of dog and any type of training -- from basic obedience to advanced field work.




    Gun Dog Supply Exclusive: One Hour BASIC OBEDIENCE Ecollar Training DVD

      Garmin Tri-Tronics PRO 550 $40 Value -- You get this FOR A PENNY when you buy this ecollar.

      We are proud to announce that Professional Dog Trainer Robin MacFarlane is working with us! We just wrapped another video shoot, and are launching her latest DVD.

      PREVIEW: Watch a 10-minute Preview here...

      What's interesting about these videos is that Robin has never worked with these dogs before, and several younger dogs have never been trained on an ecollar.

      First, Robin walks you through the basic obedience commands showing what proper form looks like.

      Next, Robin shows how she introduces the ecollar to two of Steve's puppies, Jack & Tilly, and shows you how to find the right STIM level to communicate with your dog.

      She then turns that into a lesson for your dog to recognize that STIM means pay attention to your handler and expands that into a basic recall.

      Additional segments include teaching RECALL, PLACE, SIT, and HEEL.

    Garmin PRO 550 Range

      Collar range is up to 1 mile which is ample for most dog training or hunting situations.

      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 will vary depending on training conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.

      Remember, too much range will never hurt, but too little could be a problem.

    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
    Ease of use and 21 levels of continuous and momentary stimulation, vibration, and tone.

    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.
    Easy to use and the "beep" capability eventually becomes the signal. No shocking necessary. OK, sometimes. 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.
    Many levels of stimulation 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

    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.
    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. It is a more expensive unit, however you may not need the distance of this unit.

    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.
    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 6 listed in the review and comments.

    Excellent Product and the free video is extremely helpful for training too!
    Great product, affordable, easy to use, has many options and has a more extended range than most e-collars. 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!

    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!

    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.
    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. none

    Very effective training collar. I rarely need to go above 3 to get focus.
    Plenty of power and battery life. Buttons are easy to use. 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.

    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.

    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.
    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

    Great Update from my field 90
    October 5, 2021
    The new collar and receiver smaller sizes are better than my old field 90. The transmitter with the 3 levels per no. setting is so convenient when running two dogs just change the toggle for the collar same as my old field 90. Was easy to adapt to the new features on the pro 550.

    Very happy with the Pro 550
    September 28, 2021
    I have had several weeks to evaluate this training collar. It has many options and allows me to quickly adjust to what is needed for my dog. I can control my dog from extended distances which I am very happy about.
    One thing to be aware of. We were sorting cows and my dog was tied up about 50 yards away and was barking. I went and switched it to the shock collar and I heard him Yelp a few times which indicated to me that the collar was working. Every now and again I would hear him yelp and assumed he tried to bark. After we finished and we were sitting and resting next to the dog and he yelped and had not barked. I realized at that moment that every time someone slammed one of the metal gates shut the collar interpreted it as a dog bark and delivered a shock. I quickly turned the collar off to prevent him from additional unwarranted shocks.
    The collar and the controller hold a good charge for extended use.
    Yes I am very happy.
    Control options Extended battery life Distance of use Shock collar misinterprets loud background noises as a bark.

    An improved version of my old Tri Tronics collar
    September 15, 2021
    My old collar quit working after about 15 + Years so I bought this one. Very similar in the old collar i found it extremely easy to learn. Would definitely recommend it if you’re a serious dog trainer.
    Charging is much easier. Good long range. Ruggedly built and doesn't look or feel like a toy. Green light on the collar is a little bright.

    Garmin 550 strap
    June 4, 2021
    The only problem I have with the Garmin is the strap that it comes with. It is only a single buckle and roller. I have actually had the collar come open and fall off. I did order a new strap with a double buckle but I would like to see this standard with the original strap instead of paying extra. Customer service was very helpful.

    I worked with my dog trainer on the set-up and use of this product - it works and is simple to operate. I have 8 month old Weimaraner, who is a big strong girl and plan on using her later this year for bird hunting in AZ. This product assists me in keeping communication with her.
    I recommend this product.

    I was looking for an e-collar that that would be easy to use and help with multiple situation. This collar works as a hard core training tool but, has two nice features of being a bark collar and beacon light when I take dog out in early morning or late evening walks. Totally happy with it and the 400 dollar investment was worth it since these units are built like a tank.

    Not happy with this Tritonics/Garmin 550
    April 8, 2021
    So I had the old Tritonics that I bought a good 10 years ago. Still works but thought with a new pup I should invest in a new one. Tritonics was bought out by Garmin I believe as this was probably 2yrs ago. I could barely feel anything until I got to a 3. Didn’t think this would be a problem but this new dog needs a higher level than my less “drivey ” dog did. So I am already using a 5 medium at times so don’t have much farther to go. Today I found that for some reason on a 4 low she yelped, which she never does. I always check it on me before placing it on her and it had been ok. A friend told me that she and many in her training group have complained of inconsistencies with the stimulation levels but this is a first for me. So this is why I do not recommend this e-collar.
    Inconsistent stimulation level. No real stimulation until I get to a 3 and that is barely perceptible.
