Innotek TT-100A GunDog Trainer w/ Beeper

Recommended Posts

Anybody using one of these? My son and I just purchased our first hunting dog. He is a 10.5 month old brittney. So far, in the yard...., he has shown promise. He has been worked with in the field and is PERFECT in the house. He is a VERY nice dog and well behaved. We are taking him to a hunting preserve on Friday to work with him before we set him off in the field. We want to be sure we have control of him.

I'm hoping I do not need to go the collar route. I would prefer him to be trained well and obedient. I have just been looking at the collars available just in case we go that route.

Our first "real" hunt is planned for the weekend of the 17/18. I hope to get a couple of mini hunts under our belt before then.

I have read both books by Richard A. Wolters and they had some great info in them.

Thanks for the help!

I had the innotek command series TT track and train beeper/collar combo. The concept was good, but I had a lot of problems with mine. One of the innotek features is that you need to program or pair the transmitter with the collar. Mine would frequently quit and not recognize the collar and then need to be reprogramed, even with fresh batteries. I did like the small size and ability to use a bird launcher with the same transmitter, but I couldn't stand that it never worked when I needed it the most. I think the dogra or tritonics collars are much more reliable and also have rechargable sealed batteries that are so much better than using some wierd size lithium camera battery that you can only find in a few larger stores. I have the new G2 upland special with the collar and beeper and really like it so far. Keep the dog on the check chord the first year and buy the e-collar next year. I really like the ability to locate or turn on the beeper with the transmitter. It seems like I always end up in the cattails or 7ft tall nasty stuff to find the pheasants, and it's nice to know where your dog is.

I would stay away from the Innotek. I also have one with all the same problems. I bought a Dogtra last year and like it MUCH better.

I have had that same one for around 3 years without a problem, other than the need to sync the collar and remote together once in a blue moon, which only takes a second or two.

Mark, with the Upland G2 do you ever experience the problem where the collar rotates and the beeper and receiver unit end up being on the sides of your dog's neck instead of the beeper being on top and the receiver on the bottom. I've heard of this but haven't seen it and I'm pondering the G2 or another train/beep combo. Just looking for your experiences with that particular collar in that regard.

MNUser. I am sure you already plan on it if you go the e-collar route....but I just wanted to mention to make sure you collar condition the dog properly before using the collar in any regular scenarios. It does take a little time to condition them to the commands and how to properly respond.

Enjoy the pup and the hunts!!!

I use the dogtra 2000 T&B and it has been trouble free.

beeper has different modes etc run and point with the pager.

I also like being able to adjust the level of the shock from 0 to 100. i cant rember if other collars had that many options on the level shock I thought some were just 1 to 10.

Congrats on the new pup. I have 2 britts myself. In my opinion, an e-collar is standard equipment while hunting.

It goes hand in hand with commands. Sometimes the dog can't hear your commands in the field.Safety too. I have witnessed a family dog chasing a missed bird towards the road, as a semi was coming towards the "accident." Turned out OK, but 6 grown men had large pits in their stomachs for a few moments. Yell all you want at the dog, but an e-collar will help control the animal. It doesn't hurt the

dog either. Shock yourself. No big deal.

One more thing, birds run out the back as hunters are yelling field commands at their dogs. Good luck with the britt.

I have a 40 lb vizsla with a smaller neck. Yes, it is a constant problem for me because the beeper is giant. I see that tritonics even sells a counterbalance/dummy collar to help keep the beeper upright when used alone. Between the collar, beeper, buckle, and the D-ring I don't have enough neck to get everything perfectly centered (hers is about 12"). On a dog with a larger sized neck, I don't think it would be a big issue. I always place the collar as high on the neck as I can, and also tight to minimize this. One of the prongs seems to end up over the flap of skin on the neck and the other prong in the center, which can lead to those neck scabs when they collar is rubbing the neck for 3-4 day hunts. The beeper seems to end up right behind one of the ears, so it's not sideways but usually at about a 45 degree angle if you know what I mean. I think the beeper is tall enough that even when it's behind an ear, the noise is still projected away and not directly into it. The beeper is VERY LOUD so it works well for big runners or deaf hunters. There are only 2 volume settings, and low volume is louder than most other beepers on the market. For me the deciding factor would be if your going to be using it on multiple dogs. I have the EXP version and I plan on having some pups next year so it will be nice to just add another collar. (the EXP can run up to 3 collars). If I was only going to use it on one dog I think I would buy dogtra because of the smaller size and pager feature. Tritonics does say it has a locator/pager but basically when you turn on the beeper then off, it has a different ascending then descending tone (kind of cheesy). I really like the 1 mile range and it works great, if the beeper was smaller and lighter it would be the ultimate combo collar. I had a water retrive on a pheasant last week, and the beeper was totally submerged. Luckily, it still functions fine. I was a little worried because the beeper has a small rubber o-ring to keep it water-tight. You can't beat tritonics reliability or customer service.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
