Dog Training Collars Buying Guide



Dog training collars or remote dog trainers are used to correct dog’s unwanted behavior and reinforce training. A remote trainer has two parts: a remote transmitter that is a hand held and a receiver collar worn by the dog. You can active the collar or receiver by pressing a button on the remote. The new Garmin Delta Smart collar is activated from a smartphone so the smartphone act as a remote handheld for the Delta Smart collar. By installing the Garmin Canine app via Apple iTunes or Google play store, the paired smartphone is able setup output levels, stimulation modes and activity tracking of the Delta Smart collar. These remote training collar are activated manually so if you have a barking dog, we recommend you to use an automatic bark control collar or Garmin Delta Sport XC, SportPRO, Pro 70 and Pro 550 dog training collars which have built in barklimiter bark control collar feature, and if you have an escaping dog, we recommend you to use a dog containment system.

To choose the correct remote dog training system is dependent on what breed and size the dog is. Is it a working, hunting or pet dog? If you are training the dog in your house yard, a short range trainer is required. If you want to training a working or hunting dog then we recommend a long range trainer with a high output option. If your dog travels with you, we recommend long lasting rechargeable battery or easy to replace battery system. Before going to the Remote Training Systems comparison table, to choose the correct training system, there are a few key factors you will need to consider.

Range
First you have to consider what sort of range you require for training. For pet dog training, around the house yard or whilst walking your dog, a Companion or Yard dog training collars with a range of up to 400 metres is recommended. We recommend remote trainers up to 1200m for working dogs around cattle. For hunting and mustering, long range and extra long range hunting dog training systems with a range up to 1600 metres is recommended. Please keep in mind the range on all remote training systems is based on "clear line of sight" only. The range can be affected by weather, terrain, air pressure etc. It is recommended that you always choose a system with “extra” range to what you expect. For example, if you are looking for 400 metres range, then a 700 metres range system could be better.

Tone, vibration and stimulation
The tone and vibration can be used for warning positive reinforcement during training. A “vibration” option is better than a tone as won’t confuse the dog of the beeping. This will stop the dog reacting alarms, phones and any other electronic devices. The vibration feature is great for deaf dogs as well. Using a vibration as a warning/phrase is much more accurate and effective than tones. Most Dogtra and Garmin remote dog trainers have the vibration feature.

All remote training systems have multi- adjustable levels of stimulation (output). Some systems have 10 levels of output and some systems have 127 levels of output. Dependent on the design of the collar, most high output/stubborn dog systems have very similar low end and high end output. The system with 127 of variable correction has a wider spread in stimulation than system with 10 levels. Smaller gradual means you can change level easier which is good for working dogs and hunting dog. More gradual of stimulation gives you more options which is better for sensitive dog. The Dogtra Edge remote trainer has the option that you can exchange the insensitive dial between 8 levels selector "Step" dial and 127 levels rheostat intensity dial.

Continuous stimulation gives the dog a continuous pulse. When you press the button, it allows you to control the length of the correction. Most remote training systems have “safety cut off” feature which will cut off the stimulation when the button has been pressed for more than 10 seconds (dependent on different system). It is normally used for day to day training for new commands.

Momentary stimulation gives the dog a single, rapid pulse which lasts for a second only. It is normally used for trained dog to correct known commands.

Boost stimulation increases the output of correction by 1 level or 2 levels (dependent on the system) higher than current stimulation level. It is used in an urgent situation to stop unwanted behavior.

Multi Dog Trainers
Multi dog remote trainers are able to control multi dog collar receivers via one transmitter handheld device. A remote trainer with the capacity to expand to control more than one dog should be considered when purchasing the dog training system. Most basic remote trainers allow you train one dog at a time, some of the Dogtra brand remote trainers (IQ "plus", 200c/202c, ARC, 1900S/1902S) can do one dog or two dogs. Garmin Delta xc series systems can control up to 3 dogs and Pro 70 is expandable to control up to 6 dogs. A colour coded collar strap and button on the transmitter is recommended for multi dog trainers. It is helpful to correct the dog that you want to send the correction to. You don’t want to accidentally stimulate the wrong dog.

Waterproof and rechargeable system
Waterproof collar and remote/transmitter is ideal if the dog likes water or if there is water around the area. However, waterproof is not qual to salt waterproof, if used in salt water you need to rinse off as quickly as possible as the salt water can be corrosive.

Rechargeable battery systems are dependent on personal preferences. Some people don’t like rechargeable batteries because they cannot charge the system if they are away for a long time. Please note car chargers for Garmin Dog Training and Tracking Collars are available. However, other people like the rechargeable battery because it saves money of purchasing batteries in long term and also simple to use.
