Great unit , I ran 2 beagles and a lab on it for years, my 2 girls (beagles)have since past on and I just bought a new collar and remote for the lab. They are great and very reliable,garmin service is excellent. And the units are very durable.
Great features for the money
October 7, 2023
This replaced a 20+ year old Tri-Tronics Sportsman. I've been very pleased with the additional features and overall quality of the unit. Very useful in training an energetic 17 month German Shepherd. I wouldn't be surprised if I got 20+ years service out of this e-collar as well.

My dog would ignore me and run into the neighbor's yard. He knew the what "No" and "Come" meant but choose not to obey. I used the collar for two days correcting him first giving a warning tone then a shock if he did not I respond. He obeys commands now.
Great price, great product, great shipping!

Fantastic product, and great company to do business with.
Well designed compact dog trainer

Beau has been extremely responsive to the collar since I first started working with him. The video was also very helpful.
Works on Long, Thick Double Coats
July 2, 2023
We have rough collie and were concerned this collar would not work through her thick double coat. We tried other brands, and they did not work. This collar works! We just need setting 4 on the electric stim. We find that the tone (beep!) is enough to redirect our collie's attention 95% of the time. This is helping her learn not to run up to other dogs or people without permission, to stay close on outings, and to not chase wildlife. Note: The vibration doesn't seem to work with her thick coat.

have been wanting to upgrade from an old (25+ years) Tri Tronics simple short range shock collar for a long time. this new (to me anyway) collar that i can adjust on the fly and also has tone/vibrate modes along with the led lights is EXACTLY what i've been needing. always hated using the shock feature to just control an exited dog when the tone/vibration option would suffice to clear the temporary deafness and ear wax buildup that sometimes occurs during hunting. the light fixture is great too as we walk out in the dark some days and i let him happy time on the way back to the truck. great delivery speed on my order, thanks again from myself and Fynn.
best for any dog owner

Long collar, easy to configure, works great. I got this for my Boykin and haven’t had to get past 3 with it. I like the extra functions. I haven’t found a use for the vibrate yet. Overall good product.

The e collar was as described in the video reviews within Gun Dog Supply’s website. Works great I like the ability to dial in the intensity level on the wheel of the remote. The video with Robin is extremely helpful. I am very happy with the purchase! I highly recommend this product.

Instant problem solver!!!
April 25, 2023
Used the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro for about 3-minutes with a well-trained Golden who was just not 100% reliable to recall with distractions and precise heal command (he lost focus and wondered at times). Problem solved! He's been in training with a professional for 2-years with treat motivation exclusively. That works most of the time, but "most of the time" isn't good enough.
Works like a champ
April 25, 2023
I purchased the Pro Sport to help with my training. Excellent product. Works very well. Would recommend as a training collar for sure.

A valuable piece of training gear.

Adding the utility of a bark limiter to a great training collar makes this a most valuable training aid.
Excellent training tool
April 21, 2023
My dog trainer recommended this collar for my young rescue dog, who is high energy and inclined to run throughout our 15 acres. The collar reminds her to come when called and not wander off into the woods. Easy to use and effective.

I've had these collars for a few years now. Replaced my old TriTronics collars (remote broke, couldn't get replacement) for this one. Never thought I'd care or need the bark limiter but it has come in handy. Love the light. I can't believe how long they last before needing charged

I am very pleased with the product. The only complaint I have is the only way I con get the $30.00 rebate is online and requires a photo of the receipt. I do not have a way to do that and they will not accept a mail in rebate. As I said I was pleased with the product even though I haven't used it yet. I am considering returning it because I was not able to get my rebate.
March 21, 2023
The collar was an upgrade from the Dogtra Arc. I decided to purchase the Garmin due to the tone and light features. The design is solid and easy to operate…very happy with it. Our Italian Pointer had no issues with adjusting to the tone, which works flawlessly. Thank you Garmin. And thank you, Steve and the rest of the team at Gun Dog Supply!!
Great product. Great support
March 21, 2023
I’m a 74 year old woman with two hip replacements and back issues. This is my second brand of electronic collar. I’m not a hunter but need a collar for my very headstrong, rather large rescue Lab, Rottweiler, Beagle cross. I know! He’s conflicted, but a fun loving happy dog. This Garmin collar is easy to set up right out of the box, is easy to understand and easy to use the hand held controls to really dial in what works and use no more than necessary. I’ve put a lot of hours of training into my dog and this collar will help to advance that even more. I had one question during my ordering process and I received an answer immediately. This collar is far superior to the first one I had which was another well reviewed brand of similar cost.
Easy to use product

The Garmin Sport Pro was a game changer for me in training our dog. He understood when I wanted him to come, but even with a treat as a reward often chose not to. The training collar made him understand that I was serious, and his attitude completely changed. He rarely needed more that one stimulation a day during the first week of collar training, and almost never after two weeks. The collar can beep or vibrate as well as stimulate, and the beep is all that he needs anymore. With the collar we were also able to stop him from chasing cars in our driveway in only a couple of sessions. Our dog is apparently more stubborn that the dogs in the training video, and would completely blow off the low levels of stimulation, the level where you could see he felt something but was not too bothered by it. However, one stimulation that bothered him (3-5) was enough for the day. My wife was very hesitant about using a training collar on our dog, but we are both now completely sold on its value.

The size of the transmitter is perfect. I love the option of the lighted collar. My biggest complaint is paying $350+ for the product and there's no clip or lanyard with the handheld. That's an accessory for $13 and the other $12.
February 11, 2023
Although Ij just recently bought and started using these I'm already excited and pleased with the results. So appreciate a system that can accommodate the different training and safety needs of my two Springer Spaniels one age 11 years and the other 18 mo. old. I value the video tutorial re the system as well as the support of the Gun Dog Supply team. thanks much
New order, very easy to use so far
February 9, 2023
Only had this e collar for a week, but so far I'm finding it very easy to use, one hand control and easy to find the correct button while watching my dog.
Excellent so far

This is my first time with any kind of electrical collar, and so far it is working very well.

Great Unit at a Great Price

Great collar and price for what you get. The bark limiter is a great feature and easy to use. Very pleased with this purchase.

Too soon to tell but quality seems excellent & unit seems durable
January 25, 2023
January weather in Ohio is too miserable to do much outside with the pup but the unit is charged and ready to try - do we're not really experienced with it yet I did previously own an ancient Dogtra unit decades ago and this unit is light-years above that unit Most of the unit is intuitive, just like owners Rob & Steve Snell of Gun Dog Supply said it would be. I like the "warning" vibrator and the "positive" tone a lot as it allows me to give the dog signals at distance before the "static" stimulation has to be used. The free ($0.01) DVD & training lead for startups is very informative/useful for my wife and I, we may even buy the expanded set for more advanced ideas
Best collar ever!!!
January 24, 2023
This set up is absolutely amazing. I went from frustration to happy on day one. Does exactly what it was designed to do. Thanks to the many previous reviews, I picked this set up without hesitation.

This is my 3rd of the same collar . I have an older version as well . It'd still great 16 years later I purchased this one to have the bark limiter in the same collar. I recommend this to students as well. User friendly and sturdy. Love ot. Highly recommend.

Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro
December 14, 2022
I purchased this e-collar for my high energy two year old lab. He came trained but I needed a newed collar so I chose the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro product as I had used an older Tri-tronics before with great results. The trainer recommended this one to use. The new features are a good improvement giving some extra(vibration/tone) reminders for training. Adding the safety light is fantastic as I duck hunt public land and have to carry in decoys in the dark. It really helps me keep track of where he's at, plus I could set him on the shore to be the marker for the blind in the dark. That's part of the fun. He's just learning and I'm just learning with him. He is a house dog and we do use it for house manner training also. I would recommend this product. I'm having fun! Gary Forlines Toulon IL.

Great collar. Simple to use. Like having all 3 functions without having to reprogram like his previous collar. Mostly just use tone and vibrate, but 3rd option is always there. The light is an added bonus for night walks.
Great product. Simple remote.
October 31, 2022
I just got back from a week long ND pheasant hunt using this remote/collar. I am a first time e-collar user and was completely satisfied with the operation. The remote was simple to use. I like the small size of the remote. One thing to be aware of is the remote did not come with a lanyard or belt clip. I had to order those separately.
Satisfied with purchase
October 21, 2022
I would recommend this product. Bought it to aid in training of my two dogs - an Akita and a Catahoula. We hike every day and it works great for fine tuning their off leash listening skills.
October 16, 2022
Recently replaced the older model we had for 16 years. I’m loving the extra features on this newer model. I love the vibrate option and the beacon light. I REALLY love that the beacon light is activated from the controller & not the collar. That way you can turn the light on to see where your dog is in the dark.
October 11, 2022
Really loving this collar. We don't hunt but are always outdoors. eCollar training has given our GSP the freedom to fully and safely enjoy all of our adventures together. The collar is very reliable and the charge lasts a long time. The beacon lights are great for exercising in the fall/winter as it continues to get dark earlier. Customer service was helpful answering all my questions as I tried to narrow down which collar was best for us.

More than I wanted to spend but worth every penny!
Great functioning collar
August 24, 2022
I had a tritronics collar in the mid 90's for coonhounds . I love the simple functions of this collar . You can easily train off of beep, and vibrate buttons without looking with minimal hands on with controller .Money well spent I couldn't be more happy so far , not sure about range as I 've not had any issues as beagle stays within 300 yds.

Garmin E-Sport Pro
August 10, 2022
I love the Garmin ESport Pro collar and handlheld controller. Very durable and weather proof, very simple to use, able to control more than one collar at a time via a simple switch at the top of the controller, and very versatile. I’ve used these collars for dozens of pet clients. And currently use it with my narcotics patrol K9. As a trainer and a handler keeping it simple most often works best. The controls are so simple children can understand them. So if the kids are with the dog, and proper training and teaching has been conducted, you can effectively teach children to train, maintain and control their pet very easily. The stem is unique as well, as it’s not staticky, more of a pulse like tins unit. With an easy dial that is simple to go up or down, and my personal favorite are the headlights, as I call them. The collar is equipped with 2 LED lights that allow you see your dog quickly at night as well as provide the dog with light to see. All in all, the Garmin E Sport Pro, is an around e collar, for pets, service dogs, hunting dogs, sports or working dogs. Small, lightweight and simple to use. Can’t ask for more than that.

Hesitant but desperate
July 6, 2022
We’ve got a Great very smart and precious six month old Black Lab. She’s very eager to please however, when it came to jumping on people, young and old 🥴 and not good at leaving things she shouldn’t get into. Shock collars seemed to an abusive way to get her to mind, but we didn’t want her to injure an infant or elderly person. We have previously purchased a Bizzie Bed from Gun Dog Supply and were very impressed with it’s quality, so thought we would try a satisfaction guaranteed E-collar. The DVD was very helpful, and we began by trying the tone and vibrate mode. Got her attention and briefly worked, but found shock setting three really caught her attention without being too traumatic. Long story short, we’ve taken down our carpet protection barriers and she stays on the designated areas in our house. When we tell her to leave something we don’t want her to be messing with indoors and outside, she MINDS! Absolutely a great tool and can be used with gentleness, compassion and kindness. Highly recommended but like any other tool, there is a learning curve.

Bella Gives Her Seal of Approval !
June 24, 2022
Simple to use, effective, love having three types of alerting: tone, vibrate, and stimulus. Great range and having the lights is a plus. Our Vizsla, Bella, quickly learned just based on tone. Love the product and would highly recommend.
Excellent training collar and controller
June 17, 2022
I got instant results with the Garmin Pro Sport collar with my 7 month old lab. He used to pull us down the street when we used a retractable leash but when we put on the Garmin collar, he quickly stopped and now walks side-by-side with us, a huge improvement. And he responds to the "vibrate" setting as well, so we don't need to zap him. One criticism is that the user instruction pamphlet is not great - but after a few tries, both collar and controller work great.

I am currently begining the initial collar conditioning. We are moving from sit to the know commands step by step. I like the easy button features and simple 1-10 stimulation adjustments. The dogs are being trained for avalanche recovery using the same program a waterfowl or upland hunter uses.

Worth the money
June 3, 2022
When the trainer looked at the cheap collar I had and said I could toss it and suggested this one, I thought there can't be that big of a difference. Well, I was wrong. Our girl Gemma responds better with this Garmin collar. An added bonus, the LED light for nighttime!!!
Love the 3 options of operation
May 31, 2022
I am very pleased with the options of shock, vibrate or tone. Along with the bark eliminator settings.
May 25, 2022
This is a fantastic unit and really helped with our English Setter. Would like to see more information on the pitfalls of training with an e-collar. Would recommend this product to anyone issues with training. Product is great and Gun Dog Supply is the best company to work with in my opinion.
