    Steve Says:

    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    Let's take a look at the Garmin Alpha MINI TT15 collar. The MINI TT15 is the newest collar designed for use with the Garmin Alpha Track and Train GPS system. The MINI collar was designed for your extremely small dogs. It'll go down to a 9.5 in. neck and fit comfortably, so that you can get good e-collar contact. That's important with a training collar, unlike a tracking collar which can be a little lose on the dogs neck. With a training collar you've got to have skin contact with your probes, and so the collar's got to go down small enough. This is your big collar; this is a regular TT15, this is a MINI TT15, and what we were running into is first off you can see this is the smallest both of these collars will go. So you've got a substantially smaller neck size here. But then you've also got, while it's not extreme, the weight difference is about 3 oz., and on a really small dog that can make a little bit of a difference. But the problem we were running into was that you couldn't get this down small enough to fit onto a small dog's neck especially the little beagles. That's the biggest thing we've run into. But it also makes a difference on some of your smaller bird dogs, some of your smaller squirrel dogs, your little bitty dogs, this is a lot for them to carry around. So Garmin developed the MINI collars. 9.5 in. neck is how small it'll go. It's not for everybody. I don't want people to go, "Hey it's a small collar, so I can put it on my giant dog." Right now I'm telling folks 9.5 in. to about 14 in. is what I'm going to recommend. You'll notice, this is your GPS antennae, and as you start to get out to the bigger necks, you're going to start to get this on the side of the dog's neck. Now, we've had that before on the older versions of the Astro, but we really prefer the GPS antenna be on top. You're going to get a lot better signal reception. So as you get up into the larger necks, this is what you end up with. So I'm going to say that 14 in. is the maximum. I recommend people go with this. That's going to cover a lot of them. Several of my bird dogs can comfortably wear this collar.

    But the other problem that you run into with a dog with a larger neck, when you get all this on the side is you're going to start to get some rotation. And while that's not a gigantic deal, you'll probably still be able to get GPS reception. Notice what your antenna does. That's not good. So, small dog you actually get really good antennae placement. That's perfect. And so you want to use this on smaller dogs. With a smaller system there are two things that we are looking at. You're going to have less range, and you're going to have lower battery life. And in the GPS system that's not ideal, but for the really small dogs that's just sort of the nature of it.

    Let's talk about battery life first. With a regular TT15 collar in the 2.5 second mode -- 24 hours runtime when it kicks into rescue mode. The MINI TT15 on battery life -- it's going to get about 16. You're talking 8 hours less. Now, 16 hours is a full day for everybody, so it's just a tradeoff that you really just have to come to terms with. I'm ok with it, but that kind of goes back to what I was talking about with the larger dog there's just not a big advantage to going with a small collar. I'd rather have the longer battery life. So if you have a dog 14 in. and above, I'm going to go with the bigger collar.

    Range is going to be the other trade off. Garmin lists the MINI TT15 as having a maximum range of 4 miles. And they list the TT15 regular size collar as having a maximum range of 9 miles. I've always felt the 9 miles was pretty optimistic. I have never been able to get 9 miles out of the system. The most I've ever done with an external antenna is about 6-6.5 miles. So far all of our tests on the MINI collar, it has matched up exactly with the big collar. It's going toe-to-toe with the big collar, everything we have done. But I went back and talked to the engineers at Garmin to get an answer for that because I didn't understand why they were, in my opinion, underselling the MINI collars. What I was told is that in the 4 mile / 5 mile range and down this collar is going to work about the same. But when you get up into that longer range, when you get passed that 5 mile sort of range, that this one is going to drop off more than the larger collar. There just aren't a lot of situations where you're going to get that kind of range out of a GPS system, so right now I'm a little up in the air on what we're going to say range-wise on it. Garmin says this one is 4, this one is 9. So far, the most I’ve gotten so far with this collar is 4.5, but I haven't replicated the situation where I've gotten 6.5 miles yet, so we'll see. But so far range wise I'm pretty happy with it. So going back to it, if you've got a small dog this is perfect. If you've got a bigger dog, I would stick with the larger collar.

    Everything else about them is pretty much the same. 2 new features: the MINI collars have a bark sensor, so that you can know when your dog is barking or baying and the TT15 has what's called a sleep mode. Sleep mode was designed to allow you to shut the collar down. The way it was presented to me was that if your dog is out, you can track him, but you can't get to him, and you're worried about your battery life running out, then you can activate sleep mode. The collar will quit transmitting, and you can come back in the morning and reactivate it. In my opinion that's a pretty bad idea. If you have a location on a dog, you need to get to him as fast as you can. So I can see where you can use sleep mode if you're going from hunting spot to hunting spot, and you want to power down your collar without actually having to cut it off, then sleep mode is valuable. I would not shut down a collar on a dog that I'm tracking and try to find the next day. Beyond that it works pretty much the same. It is compatible with all of the collars out there. You can run them together if you have big dogs and small dogs, and you want one of each, you can do that. You can still run it with the TT10s, and it also has the same feature where you can run it as a tracking only collar on the Garmin Astro.

    Great size for our Braque Francais
    October 27, 2022
    Fits great and she doesn’t seem to even notice it. She’s a 7 mo BF and the collar is on the third smallest setting. The full size TT15 wouldn’t fit her 12� neck.

    Didn’t realize you got two collars with the device. The red default and whatever color you choose at checkout. Nice bonus!

    Works as it should,. Paperwork with collar said I had to update my alpha100 for collar to work....after update this collar worked but my other one didn't...had to reset hand held and reloaded both test your collar before heading out.
    Easy to use Directions on updating hand held alpha 100 maybe misleading.

    I had to buy a replacement TT15 collar due to my last one being stolen, and it was very easy to put together and connect to my existing transmitter. This system is top notch for keeping tabs on our beagles and pointing dog. And easy for a woman just starting into using a GPS to use. Thanks!

    Perfect weight for my dogs
    November 23, 2022
    I have both the original Alpha collar and this TT mini. They function the same, except I think the mini has a little less range. I use mine for bird dogs and labs, so neither is ever miles away. For me, the mini collar is superior because it weighs half as much, which is less cumbersome and less weight on the dog. I run both collars off my Alpha 200i handheld controller. I love the quality of all these systems. Honestly, they have way too much information for what I do, but you cannot beat the quality of the Garmin products.

    Kudos to Gun Dog Supply. I’ve never dealt with a more professional, efficient, knowledgeable company. I’ve been hunting with dogs 45 years, can think of no better place to purchase equipment for them.

    Works as described in the Video
    October 24, 2022
    Works exactly as Steve describes in the video. Used this on a 5 month old 30# GSP and will transition to a 40# small framed GSP when the puppy outgrows this collar. I wish the GPS square was 2" further from the battery to get centered on the top of the dog. Unit must be designed for an extremely small dog. Unit is compact and not as bulky as the regular collars. I would like to see this unit made for a full size dog.

    Works consistently, even with my updated 10 year old Alpha 100
    October 12, 2022
    Blends right in on my Alpha 100 with my other collars while in the field. Consistent performance and much better GPS connection with the newest software updates. Easy to switch from dog to dog on the handheld controller. This all coming from a non-digital guy.
    Small size for my small dog. Good satellite connection with consistent signal. None yet

    TT-15 mini
    August 31, 2022
    These TT-15 mini collars are great for my beagles. I know exactly where they are and what they are doing at all times. My four have different colors and can see them at making circles when in check. Very pleased with this product.
    Works Great! I'm Old School and would like to talk to someone at Garmin instead of emailing issues for response. Problem was solved with update, but would have been nice to have a 2-3 min conversation. #Customer service

    I will be glad to review the collar as soon as hunting season gets here. Have tried it out in the backyard and it works fine. It is much better on the dogs than the big TT 15's. They are kind of heavy.

    Perfect fit for my small setters
    August 5, 2022
    The standard size TT15 collars were just too big for my 35 pound setters. The minis fit the bill perfectly. I charge my collars every night so the shorter batter life of 16 hours should not pose a problem.

    Great tracking collar for smaller neck dogs
    June 24, 2022
    I have yet to use this in the field. I hunt in large woods of New England where my dogs are out of site. I have used the TT15 for several seasons now and it is fantastic. My young setter has a small neck and the TT15 will not fit. The TT15 mini fits perfectly. All outward appearances show the same quality and rugged construction of the TT15. Preliminary use around my home was flawless as expected. I am looking forward to trialing this in the woods this july.
    A note: I am hard of hearing with differential loss rendering my directional awareness of sound inaccurate. As a result while I can hear a beeper collar if the dog is out of site I can't locate where the sound is. That is the reason I tried this system. For 8 years now I have run my dogs silent with no bell and no beeper collar and always know where they are and when on point. For the hard of hearing the Garmin system is unbeatable!!!
    Great construction, rugged, small and fits small dogs neck

    I own two of the garmin tt15's. They have been very awesome in tracking and training my rabbit dogs. I like that I can see the distance they traveled and the average speed. Definitely worth the money and gundog supply has been really great and responsive to anything I need for my hounds

    Appreciate the Advice on E-collars
    June 8, 2022
    I bought this as a second collar to work with my Garmin Pro 500 Plus system, so I thought I already knew the collar's capabilities and was comfortable using it. Before buying it, though, I had a conversation with one of the Gun Dog Supply staff about the pros/cons of adding a second TT15 Mini collar vs. investing in an entirely different training-focused system (handheld and 2 collars). He walked me through the options I was considering, corrected a couple of my assumptions about the other system, explained a few features on this collar that I hadn't previously used, and increased the fidelity of my information. I made a more informed decision and felt better about my investment.
    I wish the antennae was removable for training scenarios where the GPS feature isn't needed. But the antennae doesn't bother the dog and it's necessary for the collar to communicate with the handheld.

    The collars are awesome. The mini is small enough and fit well on my 13� beagles. I have them set up with a Garmin 200i. The system works great. Surprised how well they stay in place when they are in the brush. Great product so far

    Adding an additional collar
    January 20, 2022
    I have been using the Alpha 100 with the TT10 and TT15 mini collars for several years and have come to rely on them while hunting with my Red setter and Brittany. I recently acquired a new pup, another Red setter, and added another TT15 mini collar to my setup. The order went through quickly and the additional color strap I choose was simple to install. Setup was simple after I downloaded the new updates from Garmin on my Alpha 100 as suggested. All my collars have long battery life, and I have tested the range up to two miles with a strong signal. No worries about where the dogs are. Great peace of mind. Highly recommend using them. The TT15 mini is just right for my setters who are under 50 lbs. The TT10 is a little heavy and bigger. I originally used it on my English Pointer, now past.
    Lightweight, easy to setup, well made. I also like the option of adding a different color collar strap. It would be nice to be able to add a brass plate to the collar with the owner's info. I have that on my other two collars.

    Best tracking/training collar

    The Garmin TriTronic ecollar plus tracking are the best of the best. Easy to set up with the transmitter and easy to update on line.
    Easy to pair to your transmitter, easy to get software updates. Sometimes takes a bit of time for the gps to hook up with the transmitter when you first turn them on.

    I like the smaller TT15 mini even for Setters
    January 20, 2021
    I run 2 Setters. Have the larger unit I use as a backup. Prefer the smaller size of the TT15 minis. The battery life is less but I have never had it run out on a hunt. Have forgotten to turn it off at home though! I angle it so the GSP receiver is on back of neck (slightly angled). Works great
    Smaller unit. Not as bulky. Works same as the larger TT15 shorter battery life, but not noticeable unless you go multiple days / hunts without a charge

    TT15 mini works great will get another mini when my tt15 stops working a lot more compact

    I love this product, but, I have had to send two of them back to tar in for the “blinking red light� which is a battery failure. One collar was 3 years old the other was 3 months. We will see how this one works out. I wanted to have a back up, now my back up is the only one. Waiting garmin to return the faulty ones.
    Can hunt comfortably with constant eyes on the dog Seem to have battery issues

    Garmin makes one very nice Track and Train (TT) Collar. It pairs well with the hand held unit (Aloha in my case). The newest version is sleeker, thinner, lighter than the previous models and I’ve moved it to my female and gave the boys the older
    Collars. I love my Garmin Alpha!
    Lighter Thinner Allows for connection to Basecamp unlike older models Haven't found any yet.
