Beeper Collars

3 posts in this topic

I currently run a Dogtra T&B which I like very much. I would like to get a Beeper only (I have two dogs and really only need the training function for one of them now). Here are what appear to be my options:

DT

Tritronics

Innotek

Sportdog

I believe DT is the only one which is re-chargeable. So far, DT is the way I am leaning. Has anyone used any of these? Opinions?

I have the tritronics beeper and it is very loud and only has 2 volume settings. It also has a very bulky design and doesn't like to stay upwright and pointed away from my dogs ears, even when I have it counterbalanced with my e-collar. The only real advantage of the tritonics is several modes to choose from, and the ability to turn them off with a transmitter intended for combo units. I really like the tritonics collars but I wouldn't buy one of their beepers as a stand alone unit.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
