Hunting Dogs

Return to Previous Page

Does this sound familiar to you?

“no matter how loud I yell or whistle the dog just won’t listen and come back” or “when I ‘m out in the bush with the dog/s and they are supposed to be hunting and get distracted by birds or other animals. I can’t get their attention back to the job by using my normal command” or “when I caught up with the dog and he had the pig that he wouldn’t come off it”

By using a hunting dog training collar is by far less stressful for working dogs or hunting dogs owner. These are just a couple of examples of how frustrating it can be for a working dog owner or hunter to be out in the field with their dog/s and find that the dog/s can be ‘hard of hearing’ at a distance (or sometimes even close up!) so this is when a dog training collar becomes an invaluable tool to add to an owners or dog trainers training kit. These are also known as a ‘shock collar’, training collar or e-collar and all have different functions that you can choose to use in your dog training e.g. varying levels of static correction, ‘vibration’ or ‘tone’ warning.

We all know what it means to have consequences of using the dog training collar correctly. Tell the dog to listen right at the time he has disobeyed his command and gives the correction if dog is not listening. In obedience training, timing is everything so when using the dog training collar and the dog doesn’t listen on the preset level of correction, you can then increase the level until you get the dog to respond just the way he or she should.

The systems that are available today differ greatly from years gone by because modern technology has helped make these products far more humane and easier pieces of equipment to use.

When choosing a device to use consider the situation that you might be using it in e.g. rounding up sheep or cattle with more than one working/mustering dog or out with more than one hunting dog, because you can choose a system tailored to your needs e.g. with mid range (up to 1200 metres) - the Dogtra 1900S/ 1902S and Garmin Sport Pro remote dog training systems or long range (up to 1600 metres) - the Garmin Pro 70/550 and Dogtra Edge remote trainers.

When go for a hunt, you may have a few dogs with you, the best and simple to use multi dog system. The Garmin Pro 70 is good one for training with over 3 dogs which can train/control up to 6 dogs (with extra collars) with one remote. The remote transmitter has colour coded button to match the colour on the collar as well. The Dogtra edge can train up to 4 dogs. Garmin Pro 550 and Garmin Sport Pro trains up to 3 dogs.
