By: Renee Hardee From ALWe have owned training collars before and I have to tell you, this one is the best by far that we have used. Although we have the working breed dog we do not work them ourselves here at Tunnel Springs Bullies but we do on occasion have issues that can become an real problem if not corrected pretty quickly and so we decided to get some new training collars as our old ones were a bit out dated and no batteries could be found to fit them so here we are, we are trying out the GARMIN. WE LOVE IT, we recommend it highly as it's very effective and the distance it reaches has played the ultimate role in it doing as good a job and as quickly as it has done. The dogs learn very quickly just because you are not within eye sight does not mean they can act out of line. You see we have one new female that is hateful to others when you are not in sight, with two corrections to her, she has not been hateful at all to anyone since. Second example here that we can give you is: We have one new male that thinks that during bird hunts that he should bark non stop at the sound a gun being fired, the last bird hunt prior to the new Garmin he barked 3 straight hours during the hunt... in less than three corrections he has learned that he did not have to bark when someone fired a gun. Third and last example for the day; One of our males thinks he has to attack anything that has a small engine and barks at it excessively "he will literally take a weed eater out of your hands, and tries to come for a chainsaw as well, which is dangerous to him more so but to us as well... the Garmin STOPPED that in it's tracks as well. It's to be used to deter bad behavior ONLY it's never to be used for any other reason not here not with us! I some times wish however that I had gotten all 6 collars instead of just 4. Steve and Gun Dog Supply was the ultimate reason for my choice with the Garmin, due to their reviews of the products and my needs. The shipping was fast and service friendly.
