Purchased two collars. They are excellent. My dog had a bad habit of sitting and barking while we ate. We put that collar in the bark inhibitor mode. He barked a total of 3 times in short order and it zapped him each time. He did not bark again all day! Amazing!!!! He rarely barks now The collar is effective for when u are training. For instance, now when we call him, if he doesn't come after the second call, all we have to do is just put it on 'tone' and remind him and he comes right away. Definitely worth the money.

First off please note we are not hunters. We use this system for our dogs who are regularly off leash as a decision maker when needed and peace of mind a round livestock and other dogs. We lost our old trusty tri tronics sport controller which we loved and needed a new system. Read the reviews on the delta which sadly didn't sound promising and decided to go with the pro 70 as not much had changed. We wanted the piece of mind and although we have no plans on having 6 dogs, we will likely add a 3rd down the road. More cost but everything you would expect from tri tronics and pleased that it was left alone unlike the delta. Used 3 times now and here is my take: Pros: if you liked the old tri tronics system you will like this. Simple and thus far dependable Led feature a nice addition Tone function is loud which I appreciate. The dogs definitely notice. Cons Size: likely due to the capabilities of the system, the controller is a bit large for us. We would have appreciated a smaller size that fit better in our pockets. Just know that the size is a little awkward for your pocket or for running. Charging accessories: a bit complicated and some small components which it would seem could wear over time Stimulation button: miss that there is no rapid button for charge unlike the sport. Be mindful that you will need to switch the controller nob by hand between tone and stimulation which requires good situational awareness by the user. All in all this was a bit more than we needed but as I mentioned we wanted something from tri tronics that hadn't been overly complicated by garmin. Although expensive, we got what we paid for which is piece of mind and expect and long life with this unit and the benefit of adding as needed down the road.

The Garmin Pro 70 is perfect for what I need. It is easy to sync additional collars and to switch between dogs. The battery life is good and recharges quickly, which is something my other collar didn't do. I also like that it doubles as a bark collar.

I opted for the 70 instead of the 550 because of the easy, clear and simple way of choosing which dog to give a signal to. Big color buttons for low-light situations made this the selling point. Additionally, the beacon lights work well and take some of the worry out of running the dogs at night. The charging attachment is a bit tricky at first, but snaps into place.

Have two 7 Month Old Black Labs, that you can't see at night and having the lights on the collars is great. They learned immediately to respond to the beep. My wife loves the collars because she can take them out and not be pulled all over in two directions. Puppies love the freedom!

"My collars work perfect and the service from Gun Dog supply couldn't be any better."
The Pro 70 is easy to use, and has great range. The only negative is you have to take your eyes off the dog to change the type of stimulation. I guess I got spoiled with the Tri Tronics Sport Basic that had tone, momentary, and continual stimulation in three simple buttons.

This system is everything it claims to be. I found it to perform exactly how they said it would. This has got to be the Beagle hunters collar. I didn't know, before I got the collar, if it would have enough correction for strong willed dogs, but it has plenty with some to spare. I highly recommend it.

My complaint would be that the remote is large and cumbersome. I carry it while riding horseback, and at the size it is difficult to handle. Also, the charging cords etc. are yet more spaghetti wires cluttering a space that I have yet to decide where to keep it all. It would be nice to have an all in one cradle charger or at least the same charger for all the pieces. Otherwise, it works well and I am learning how long a charge lasts and control layout.
