    Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE

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

    We are really happy to have a new version of the BEST SELLING Tri-Tronics Sport series training collar back on the market.

    The Sport series has been one of our best selling products since the late 1990's when the original Sportsman collars came out. Over time, the newer versions were incredibly popular, including the Sport 50, Sport 60, Sport 80, Sport Basic and Sport Combo.

    Garmin based the design of the Sport PRO on the most popular version of the Tri-Tronics Sport collars -- the Sport Basic.

    The Sport Basic was incredibly popular with many dog trainers because of it's ease of use and durable design. The choice of stimulation levels made it one of the best collars on the market, especially for folks looking for a high quality, no look, durable system with all of the reliability of the Tri-Tronics name.

    Garmin's Sport PRO continues this history of simple innovation and design.

  • The Sport PRO is perfect for a wide range of dog folks looking for a tough, dependable unit that is designed for no-look, one-handed operation.
  • The Sport PRO is designed for folks looking for a unit that does not use an LCD Screen but has buttons, dials and toggle switches.
  • The Sport PRO features a small transmitter that is easy to hold and comfortable to use.
  • The Sport PRO has 10 levels of both momentary and continuous stimulation with tone and vibration options.
  • The Sport PRO has built-in Running Lights so your dog can easily be seen at night.
  • The Sport PRO also includes the latest version of Garmin's built-in "PRO Bark Limiter" bark collar to control nuisance barking.

    The Sport PRO is a good choice for working with any breed of dog.

    Ten intensity levels can be quickly adjusted with the dial on the side of the transmitter. Teach yardwork/obedience and enforce known commands with lower levels of stimulation. Use higher levels to stop unwanted chasing or to overcome strong distractions.

    The Sport PRO is one of the only systems that has Tone and Vibration features that you can use without having to change the dial.

    This allows you the option of teaching multiple non-stimulation commands that you can access quickly from the transmitter.

    The Sport PRO uses the top of the line PRO collar.

    This is the same collar that is used on the Garmin PRO 70 and PRO 550.

    The Sport PRO has the built-in Bark Limiter just like the other Garmin PRO units.

    Unlike the PRO units, the Sport has both an Autorise feature and a Direct Set option. I really prefer the Direct Set feature for tough barkers that need higher levels.

    The Sport PRO is expandable.

    Purchase a one dog system and add up to two additional dogs at any point in the future if your needs change. The Sport PRO uses a color coded 3 position toggle switch that allows you to move from dog to dog without having to look at the transmitter. The color positions on the handheld match the collar strap colors so you always know which dog is which.

    Just like other PRO units, the Sport PRO has Running Lights or Beacon Lights on the collar.

    These lights can be turned off and on remotely and are great for seeing your dog in the dark.

    Another cool addition to the Sport PRO is the Garmin built-in Spine Mount.

    This allows you the option of using several of Garmin's accessories with your Sport PRO handheld.

    A few of our guys on staff have been testing the Sport PRO the last few weeks. Several are planning on switching to it as their main collar.

    This is a GREAT collar and all of the new Garmin improvements make it even better.

    I expect the Sport PRO to quickly become one of our best selling systems.


    Garmin SPORT PRO Overview:

      The 3/4 mile range Garmin / Tri-Tronics Sport PRO is lightweight, easy to use, and loaded with features. Train up to three dogs with no-look, one handed operation. Select from 10 different stimulation levels on the transmitter with positive clicks between levels. Remotely control the built-in Bark Limiter to keep things quiet, or activate the Beacon Lights for extra visibility in low light situations. Plus, the transmitter floats!

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

      Garmin Tri-Tronics SPORT PRO $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.

      Exclusively available at Gun Dog Supply.

    Garmin SPORT PRO Range

      3/4 mile range, which is ample for most dog training or for hunting with close-working field dogs. 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.

    Perfect choice of collars
    September 23, 2020
    Had collars for about 2 weeks now. The 2 collars allow us to use 1 remote for both dogs with ease. The top switch colors match the colors of switch making it easy to teach my wife how to operate. The collar itself is built tougher than the other collars we have had. We live on 5 acres in coyote country with little fencing. The boys know that with the beeps they are to come and sit. The younger one responds real well with less than #4 correction when needed usually when he is amped and he will change his focus back to the operator. The older dog knows that a correction will follow if he does not obey the beep so he is fairly obedient. Both collars fit comfortably. The head lights allow us to find the dogs at night as we only have star light once sun goes down. The bark limiter we use on the younger dog when inside and he is slowly understanding that barking is not allowed unless there is a real threat. Easy to set from remote and switching between modes. Hoping to not use after the learning is done. Great product for how we use the collars to keep the boys safe. We are hoping the water rating holds up as we have not been to the lake yet.
    Thank you Gun Dog for your help with the selection.
    ProsEase of use Collar color matches remote settings Switching between modes is easy Headlights for night tracking Bark limiter easy to switch into from remote Doesn't seems to bother dogs wearing Tougher built than others Last 3 days on one full charge Green flash of LED makes night time easy to see dog
    ConsReally haven't found any as they were plug and play Wish remote came with a belt clip

    Significant changes from my 80's vintage AL70LR
    September 16, 2020
    The new collars like the Sport Pro are such great tools, the old collars got the job done but the new lower-key stimulation, Vibration, and Tone allow you to communicate with your dog vs simply sending the stronger "you did something wrong" message.

    Of course even back then we realized the importance of conditioning and making sure the dog understands the meaning of the stimulation and that is key as well today.

    What is nice now is the ability to quickly access all the options and even change the stimulation level without even looking at the controller.

    ProsNice compact and lightweight collar and controller that is easy to use and well built. The DVD is a nice add on as well, especially for those who have not done any work with a collar before. Service from GDS excellent as always, shipping was fast as usual.
    ConsThe charging system is really a sea of connectors that are not needed and I fear they will come apart or fail from repeated use. I chose to apply large size heat shrink tubing over them so they stay connected but Garman/Tri-Tronics could do a better job on that system. See circled areas on photo. Gun Dog Supply while I appreciate the inclusion of a lanyard, stepping it up to something a bit more substantial and more comfortable would be nice. Honestly, I had several ID and access pass lanyards from various events that were giveaways that are a bit easier on the neck and allow the remote to snap on and off. Just a thought.

    Fantastic Set
    September 8, 2020
    I have two beagles who've previously had the Delta Sport XC collars. We lost the controller so instead of buying another one we decided to upgrade since we were not satisfied with that model.

    This model is heads and tails above the Sport XC. Battery life is significantly longer and the LED light feature on this model is worth its weight in gold. If you have a big backyard or you let them out in the woods at night the LED is super useful. If I can't find one, and their nose is to the ground, I can turn on the bright LED light and see where they are at from far away. It's also a safety thing for visibility by cars.

    Overall, the collar is bigger than the Delta Sport XC but not too big. Again, I use these on two beagles, a smaller one and a large frame one. Very happy with this purchase and I wish we would have upgraded long ago.

    We had been researching all different kinds trying to find one that would work best for us and our pup. We chose this one based on it being a Steve’s pick and what he had to say about it. We couldn’t be happier. It has been easy to use and very effective in keeping our pup close to use and safe while still giving her the space she needs to get the activity that she needs. One of the features that drew us to this one was that it was reported to be waterproof and that the remote could float. We live on a lake and do a lot of swimming and boating. We have used it in the water several times so far and it does actually appear to be waterproof and the remote actually does float.

    I was gifted a new pup to accompany the pointer we already had, so I needed an additional E-collar system. Instead of fumbling between two systems, I decided to look for a product that could manipulate multiple collars with one controller. I wanted a controller that I could easily manipulate without having to constantly look at the settings, and the collars needed to be rugged with an ample range, water proof, shock proof and most of all clutts proof. “Hahahaha” The Garmin Sport Pro fit the bill perfect! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use especially when selecting commands between collars, and the recharging time is fast. The new pup had started a habit of yelping while chasing after the older dog, but the anti-bark settings on the collar has been very effective In curbing that habit. I do recommend this product to anyone who needs to control/ train multiple dogs, and is looking for a rugged and easy to use system. Gun Dog Supply shipping are second to none, I was given tracking information and an estimated time of arrival, I received it a day before their calculations. Shipping to Hawaii is always a crap shoot, but my package arrived on time!!!
    Great service from a great company for a great product.

    Keep those shoe laces tight, dogs hydrated and gun at the ready. Safe Hunting...
    ProsEasy to use, quick recharge, rugged construction, water resistant, collar made of tough materials.

    Great collar for a GSP
    September 3, 2020
    I purchased the collar to replace an older Sport Upland G3 and I am not disappointed. The range is good, and for my headstrong follow-my-nose 8 year old GSP, I never have to go above a 5 on the STIM dial. A nice upgrade from my old collar is the vibe and tone, which is usually all I need to get his attention. The ability to turn the lights on and off from the remote control is especially handy.
    ProsVibe and tone functionality, along with the lights on the collar.
    ConsMy older collar came with a 1 inch collar that feels much more durable.

    This is a fantastic product it has made dog training so much easier. The ability to turn power up and down with a dial one handed is perfect. Being able to turn bark mode on without having to take the collar off it also extremely handy. Bright LED light are useful if u need them. Battery lasts about 3 days on the collar unit with only shutting it off for 8 hours a day and the controller lasts 6-9 days.
    ProsGreat range Great battery life No delay on stimulation Waterproof Easy power dial Ease of use
    ConsNo lanyard comes with the controller

    Works Well
    September 2, 2020
    This is next generation collar for my English Setter and Weimaraner. Have had 3 other vintages over the years and this unit has improved in most areas, (lighter weight, range, battery status indicator, and usb recharging of collars and transmitter.) Collar light is a nice feature. One downside is that the collar is narrower, and on one or two occasions the collar unit has flipped upside down while on the dog, thus making the prongs useless. I have used these types of collars for over a decade and this has never happened before. While some will say collar was too loose, my response would be that my dogs have never had issues such as this with previous collars, and previous collars worked as advertised, with no abrasion injury to dog’s neck. This is not a big deal and I am making the collar tighter in light of the narrower width of the collar. I haven’t had to use shock, as both dogs, ages 13 and 8, respond well to the tone, based upon their previous experience with these type of collars. I would recommend this collar. However, the only reason I purchased this collar is because replacement batteries were not available for my previous collars, and rechargeable batteries have a life span.Thus I hope that when the time comes, the manufacturer offers replacement batteries, as these units are expensive and fully capable of continued service with just a new battery.
    ProsUSB recharging, collar light, range, light weight, battery status indicator
    ConsNarrow collar conducive to unit flipping over, disabling effectiveness of prongs, particularly with hunting dogs going through heavy cover.

    Review for Garmin Tri-Tronics SPORT PRO
    November 16, 2018
    No Joke. This thing has been a complete game changer in terms of enjoying time with our boy! I belabored spending more than $100 for something I wasn't sure we'd get value from but am glad I followed the solid advice on Gundog Supply and went with Steve's Pick.

    When we first got it, the dog was oblivious, so I called gun dog and Steve suggested snugging it up and making sure it rides high on his neck. Did that and BINGO... the dog responded instantly to the vibrate and quickly got the hang of it. Of course, he also started to figure out the vibrate isn't much but adjusting the correction level to even 3 would instantly get his attention. He's since gotten a bit more bold and will sometimes take a 6 if he's really wanting something, but without fail comes running back.

    I've shocked myself with it to see how bad it is and it's just like a good static pop from an old television set..but plenty to get his attention and we haven't had to go beyond 6

    Furthermore, the boy HATES wearing a leash and loves putting this thing on because he knows he's going to have freedom. We live in the burbs and I don't hunt but we take him to woods, etc and he cuts loose swimming etc and loves it. This has changed my relationship with our dog and both of us enjoy not being tethered to a leash.

    Few Things on the device
    - waterproof and battery life/charge have been great. I just get in habit of putting on the charger once a day at some point
    - range is awesome. He's been almost mile away in woods and comes running
    - at first I thought the material on the collar was a bit strange but it had held up awesome in mud, river water, you name it!
    - the old school analog dial and simple buttons —LOVE IT. Can be -10 and I don't have to take it out of pocket and I know exactly where it's tuned. If I forget, I back the dial without looking to the stop and then count the clicks up. Simple and works great without having to pull it out of pocket and look.
    - we haven't used the two dog feature but it's great to have even with one dog because you can toggle the switch down and not worry about your dog getting zapped if you sit on it with it in your pocket.

    Bottom line - Would highly recommend you stop the search and worry about if it's inhumane to use something like this on your pup. YOU have all the control you need and it's about getting the dogs attention, NOT “shockingly them. I'm a firm believer that if you use this properly it'll be a game changer for you and your dog. I know Willy would give two paws up as well.

    I can't recommend this thing enough to anyone and Gun Dog support was fantastic. Their price was excellent too but II'd personally pay More here for their support than some bozo that doesn't know anything about it on amaz on or elsewhere.

    Stop thinking about it and GET IN THERE!!

    I had an okder version of this collar for my previous dog/s. I loved it but always wished the handheld control was smaller. This new version is 100 x’s better. Smaller handheld w/many added features. Seems just a good quality & as durable as the previos one I had and that lasted me 15+ yrs.
    ProsQuality Reliability Packed w/well thought features
    ConsLimited accessories selection and that's reaching to say anything "con"

    Just what my dog needed
    November 8, 2020
    Great price. Quick shipping. Had an issue with the video but they sent a new one right away, so also excellent customer service. As for the Sport Pro itself.... was very easy to set up and learn how to use. Didn’t realize it but my brother bought the same one for his dog, also from Gun Dog Supply, over 4 years ago and he swears by it. Would absolutely recommend this.

    Great Training Collar
    October 30, 2020
    Training collar is easy to use and has some great features. Lights work great for locating and making dogs visible at night. My first Sport Pro is 5 years old and is used everyday. I have never had a issue with it.
    ProsTraining collar is easy to use with the buttons and dials. Collar running lights are very useful for locating dogs at night. Also, useful for locating collar when it fell off in training pond!
    ConsCollar should come standard with belt clip.

    Easy to use and understand: "push and play"
    October 14, 2020
    I bought this collar for my husband, who found the 3 button system on my 550 annoying in moments of frustration while dog training! This one suits his needs (for retriever hunt test training and hunting) perfectly. Just pick a level, then all you have to do is push m or c!
    Just wish they made a form-fitting bright orange sleeve, like a cell phone case, since it's hard to see if dropped.
    ProsThe built-in slot for a carabiner or lanyard on the transmitter is very useful, as is the compact, 'pocketable' size.
    ConsThe numbers on the dial require reading glasses once you reach a certain age! The straps on the old Tritronics receivers were much sturdier

    Garmin e-collar
    October 12, 2020
    I'm a first time e collar user, so I was pretty hesitant to make the leap. I have an energetic Lab who can't walk nicely to save her life, and I wish I'd done this a year ago. I still have people who think I'm the worst owner ever but too bad.

    The online help was so helpful in selecting a model and getting the confidence to start this. I'm happy with my choice, price was good. Shipping was actually FREE to Hawaii, usually there's a little * in the small print. Thanks for that.

    My one complaint is the DVD that came with this offer, pixelated about halfway through. So the one episode I wanted on Heeling was a scrambled mess. If you read these, maybe a different disc or a link to online?? Thank you!
    Merchant Response:Andrea, Sorry to hear about the trouble with the DVD. We'll get a replacement headed your way! Thanks, Ben
    ProsI like the more manual format, I don't have to look to adjust the settings and know the location of the buttons by heart. Good price range, shipping was actually free with fast delivery, even to Hawaii . Website help was awesome. The range of settings 10 is adequate, a friend suggested way more but I don't know that's necessary. Instruction manual that came with it was good, that and the DVD is enough to get you and your dog outside and moving.
    Consdisc was pixelated about halfway through ,so can't get details of the one lesson I wanted. Otherwise no complaints

    So far, so good.

    Would give it 5 stars, but the charger clip had a production fault that should have been caught by Garmin quality control. Other than that, works great. Gun Dog Supply was fantastic. Sent new clip the day I called them.

    We received a rescue giant year old Old English Mastiff/Cane Corso cross who just might outweigh me. Upon arrival, she considered chickens fair game and cats a type of personal squeaky toy. Horse poo and cat scat were her favorite yummy snacks. She was enthusiastically dragging me everywhere on her walks. When she rough housed with the other dogs, furniture got tipped over.
    ProsWithin a week, using the low numbers, she has become an angel and joy to be around. She now and then gets a warning vibration for rough housing. She responds immediately to the warning. Outside she walks loose, rarely wears her collar. She completely ignores cats, chickens, horses and their poo.
    ConsThe only negative thing about this collar is how long I delayed in making the purchase. Already I have recommended it to a friend.

    Excellent Training Collar
    October 1, 2020
    We purchased this collar a couple of weeks ago, and it has made a significant difference. Our dog is normally very well behaved, but needs correction from time to time. We had a cheaper model from another manufacturer we purchased on line that had limited range and inconsistent performance. This is a much higher quality product with consistent performance. Additionally, although we didn't think we would use the LED light feature, it has proven very useful as we send our dog out in the early morning and are able to locate him in the dark. (He's a black lab). Consistency is everything to not only us, but the dog as well and his performance and our stress level has dramatically improved with even less use. A quality product at a very reasonable price.

    Sturdy and reliable - having an e-collar on my GSP has completely changed my life. She now comes when called and I no longer have a fear of her taking off into traffic or the woods (never to be seen again!). In comparison to other dog owner's e-collars, this Garmin is super high quality, built well and never loses connection. Would highly recommend.
    ProsWell made, easy to recharge and use.
    ConsWould prefer a smaller remote.

    Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro E-collar
    September 25, 2020
    I have trained pointing dogs since 1988 using various brands and the Tri-Tronics collars always seemed to work best for me, I recently decided to upgrade my old Garmin collar to this Sport Pro and it works great, I really like the green light you can see from a distance so you know it is working correctly. I also like the number dial as opposed to the digital way the old one worked, so far I have no negative remarks about it. Be sure and order from Gun Dog Supply for best price and quick shipping.
    ProsCan correct 2 dogs using the same transmitter
    ConsNone so far

    We have a 16 month old Catahoula using the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro. It's working well, easy to use, relatively comfortable on the dog, and easy to clean dirt off of. We've used other collars in the past and this is as good as what we've used on other dogs. Thank you for a quality product.
    Prosnumber of features - tone, vibration, nick waterproof quality because here in Florida we have a variety of waters - salt, brackish, fresh ease of cleaning ease of charging simplicity of instructions usefulness and humaneness with a breed that is very strong willed

    Training a young Golden female
    September 23, 2020
    I am just recently getting started with the collar. I have trained many dogs over the years but have never used a collar. So, we will see. My first step was to condition my dog who is a 15 month old Golden female. It surprised me that I had to set the collar at a level 8 which does nay leave much room for more should I need it. Anyway we will see, Great service from Gun Dog Supply. Thanks.

    Awesome Product
    September 15, 2020
    I have owed 3 Sport Pro's and my hunting/training buddy has had 5. We train Chesapeake's to be "meat" hunters and that requires each dog to work hard in all types of nasty conditions. So we need
    our dogs to listen to commands the first time and not play stupid. That being said, this training device
    is awesome in getting the point across to one of the most difficult breeds to train BUT once they get it, he/she will never forget what you trained them to do. Training/training/training is what gets my dog focused so I use the Sport Pro as the teaching tool that gets results.

    Merchant Response:Michael, Your Garmin Sport Pro should have come with a GDS Lanyard for the handheld. I'll add a couple of extras to the new order you placed. We appreciate your business! Thanks, Ben
    ProsTough,dependable,holds power under any condition (icy water) /and keeps doing its job. Sturdy and will survive a puppy chewing episode :)!
    ConsSteve, I wish it came with a device attached to the hand held so I could hang it around my neck.

    Best training collar ever !

    I've tried several other collars and trainers. Nothing else even comes close to the results I'm getting with 2 dogs using this collar.
    ProsLong battery life and good range.
    ConsCan't think of any.
