Training Collars

5 posts in this topic

Looking for some input on training collars for my GSP. I was out looking at collars this evening, and a couple caught my eye...I am hoping someone can get me some feedback on the ones I have in mind. I looked at the DT XTS 2000, and the Dogtra NPS 1500. Both were almost identical in price and had many of the same features. The DT had a longer range, but the Dogtra had a smaller transmitter that felt a bit sturdier...otherwise the features were almost identical. Anyone have experience with either of these or able to provide a reason why I should choose one over the other? Thanks!

unless you have a separate beeper collar already I would be definiately be getting a beeper collar. Dogtra 2500 T&B. Before I had the beeper collar I lost my GSP for over 2 hours. He was on point in the cattails not even 20 yards from where I first lost him.

I already have a beeper collar...just looking to get the other one now that the dog is old enough to handle it.

In that case I have had my Dogtra now for 3 years and it has been excellent. 4-5 Days of hunting all day long with the beeper running before I have to charge the collar. I only charge the transmitter once maybe twice during the hunting season. But I have never used the other collar you mentioned. I would go Dogtra.

I have a Dogtra that I'm very pleased with for my lab right now. I also have an older Tri-tronics that I really liked but the size of the transmitter when compared to the Dogtra makes the choice pretty easy on which one I'd use for a long day of hunting. The Tri-tronics is now relegated to home use on a basset hound that enjoys feeding off of the counters when she doesn't have an e-collar on. I also don't have any experience with the DT collar so I can't help you out on that one.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
