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.
Pros
  • Liked "fit" in my hand. Especially liked the location of the intensity dial so I can use the lowest setting most of the time, but easily bump it up a notch or two if needed. He has a lot of fur around his neck. The longer prongs were necessary. Nice that they were included. The training video was very helpful as well as the on-line training and blogs.
Cons
  • Just pricey, but worth it.

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.
Pros
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • Always check the toggle switch for the appropriate collar as I have bumped it and the collar would not work

A valuable piece of training gear.
April 25, 2023
Adding the utility of a bark limiter to a great training collar makes this a most valuable training aid.
Pros
  • Easy to switch between bark limiter and training collar.
Cons
  • Can't think of any.

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.
Pros
  • Easy to use. Rapidly recharges.

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

Solid collar
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.
Cons
  • One small thing: the button to turn the receiver on and off can be a little tricky with old arthritic fingers.

Game Changer
March 21, 2023
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.
Pros
  • The ability to beep and vibrate as well as stimulate.
Cons
  • None for me.

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.
Pros
  • Lighted collar and bark setting
Cons
  • No clip or lanyard with the handheld

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

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

Merchant Response:There is a slot on the bottom of the transmitter for a loop style lanyard
Pros
  • Compact and well constructed
Cons
  • Haven't found a way to clip to a lanyard while hunting

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
Pros
  • 1 - being able to turn on the marker lights at distance for evening runs & walks
  • 2 - vibration & tone buttons as warning/reward system
  • 3 - three collar expandability
  • 4 - no transmitter LED display to try and read in daylight
  • 5 - simple 4 button front panel
  • 6 - tough poly shell
  • 7 - simple turn dial that makes stimulation and button uses easy
  • 8 - transmitter and receiver are each so small and easy for me and the pup to carry
  • 9 - battery charge holds a very long time compared to my ancient unit which didn't last a day even
  • 10 - auxiliary on dial "re-purposes" front 4 buttons to keep transmitter simple
Cons
  • 1 - nothing in literature on how to turn transmitter/handset on (it's the lock-out feature dial)
  • 2 - markings on dial are extremely small for my old eyes
  • 3 - don't really need the barker feature in my case, just adds more unit and function light complexity
  • 4 - Tried it on my hand and felt nothing until level three - might as well start there and put less/bigger numbers on the dial
  • 5 - hard to remember what all the different lights mean when turning the receiver/collar unit on/off
  • 6 - Garmin could easily include a method, in each box, to clip the transmitter onto belt or a lanyard for the neck

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.
Pros
  • 3 functions in your hand at all times.
Cons
  • Lanyard not included.

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.
Pros
  • Compact remote
  • Simple operation
Cons
  • Does not come with lanyard or belt clip.

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.
Pros
  • Easy detailed instructions for first time use. Handheld device small, comfortable to hold, and is easy to toggle back and forth between dogs. 10 levels are enough to manage the range needed for various circumstances.
Cons
  • Not easy to get positioned, even with longer contacts, on my Akita due to her undercoat. Going to clip a small section of hair to resolve the issue.
  • Would love it if there was a remote option for multiple dogs that allowed for individual intensity levels to be set.

Must Have
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.
Pros
  • Helpful training tool
  • Gives my dog more freedom to wander without the fear of loosing him.
  • Controller fits comfortably in hand
  • Lanyard
Cons
  • I haven't found any

Game changer!
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.
Pros
  • water proof, reliable, easy to use, lots of features, beacon lights, room to grow if we add more dogs to our family.
Cons
  • i wish it came with a lanyard

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.
Pros
  • Ease of use from functions on controller.
Cons

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.
Pros
  • Lightweight.
  • Portable and concealable.
  • Multiple collars controlled from one remote.
  • Easily switched into a bark collar.
  • Durable.
  • Weather and dropped proof( I haven't seen one break yet)
  • LED lights on collar which aid in locating your dog, or providing light to see for the dog.
  • Simple to use.
Cons
  • I genuinely can not think of anything wrong with it. That's why I like it so much.

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.
Pros
  • Works Great
Cons
  • Could be misused or abused, but in the right hands with kindness and patience it is an invaluable tool

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.

Garmin Tritronix sport collar
May 15, 2022
I love this collar and controller for at home use and really beyond! We use the 550 plus out training for hunting since our pup is young and still learning to be sure we can have gps on here and longer range in case but this collar is perfect for close range at home. Controller fits in hand perfectly and easy to use without looking at it if needing to change what doing. The collar I love because it’s smaller less bulky and the antenna isn’t bumping around on everything. I’m not sure if this is true, but it seems this collar isn’t as powerful as the 550 plus which has more settings but it has what we need.
Pros
  • Small
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • Might not be as powerful but definitely works for what we need.

I love this unit - so easy to switch back and forth between dogs, and buttons/toggles that you can feel easily underneath gloves. The handheld controller is conveniently small, unlike some of the other multi-dog units.
Pros
  • Small size
  • Easy to toggle between dogs
  • Buttons that can be felt even with gloves
Cons
  • Have not found any yet!

Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro is a great collar
April 8, 2022
I have been buying products from Gun Dog Supply for years. Everything that I have purchased has met or exceeded my expectations. I have had several training collars over the years. But, I like this one the best. It is much easier to use. I run my dogs several time daily. I have deer, turkeys, geese, squirrels, and pet ducks on the property. My wife frowns upon the dogs chasing her pet ducks. This collar has been an effective tool in training my dogs.
Pros
  • Very easy to set up and use. Steve has several videos online that explain how to use the various features. Since this collar performs a lare number of tasks the videos were very helpful even to an experienced person who has used them for decades.
  • The best thing is the new user interface. You can use most ot the common functions without taking your eyes off of your dog. This is much better than the last one I had.
  • Also, there are separate buttons for tone and vibrate. The last one I had only allowed you to use one or the other a time. You had to look at the device to change from one to the other. I prefer using the tone as a first option. Then I use vibrate if the dog does not respond. Neither of these hurts the dog. As a last resort I use momentary or continuous shock.
Cons
  • I have not encountered any yet.

Awesome Ecollar that gets the job done.
March 26, 2022
The only reason I did not give this product a 5 out of 5 is that it does not come with at least a basic clip to clip the remote to yourself in some manner. And to purchase this "accessory" seems excessive. Other than that, its battery seems to last forever and it is responsive. It also covers the distance it claims to cover. The training video and lead line that it comes with are fantastic and very helpful in getting started. I would recommend this to anyone. It has gotten wet and continued to function correctly! Basically, I love this product.
Pros
  • This product can be used like a portable fence at over half the cost! It has a predictive response in regards to time and distance. The battery lasts forever.
Cons
  • The remote does not come with a way to clip it to your body. However, easily fixed with a ribbon and a D ring.

Living near a marsh, a puppy/dog has a lot of distractions, and a lot of opportunity to get lost in the marsh. The Garmin is waterproof has a large range of settings for the times your dog listens and when not so much. It also has a tone button and a vibrate button when training and the puppy is listening. The video gives great tips in how to use the product correctly

We have been pleased with this training collar. We had a cheaper one previously and the response time was too long and the battery life too short. It has been very effective in training our golden doodle in the basics. Just a quick, low level pulse is adequate and it is certainly not cruel at all €”just an attention getter.

Like multiple features....but
March 9, 2022
I've used Tritronics collars on my last 4 labs with great results and they have lasted for years. This collar has multiple features and they are useful. However, the collar strap itself is very narrow and the receiver "flips" over, often making it useless, particularly when using the extended points. The wider strap used on previous collars never did this. Also, the transmitter seems to run down pretty fast. I think it may have something to do with the "bark limiter" mode, but nonetheless, it becomes a problem.
Pros
  • multiple features
  • easy to use
Cons
  • collar flips over because of narrow strap
  • transmitter seems to run down fast
By Ron

Works great
February 26, 2022
I am so glad I got this. It is a big help reinforcing obedience training and specifically in recall. I am training my third retriever but since my last one lived 11 years it’s been a while working with a puppy. I had never used an e-collar before, but the folks I got the dog from recommended this one. It came w a DVD, and I did some further reading to make sure I didn’t set the dog back by using it poorly.
Pros
  • Easy to set up and use.
  • Adjusting correction levels is super easy. Great range of corrections. (Hard to imagine anyone ever needs the upper ranges but I guess they are there for a reason).
  • Control seems well designed overall and is comfortable to hold (see con note).
Cons
  • The collar device is heavy and tends to flip over when I am putting the collar on so the prongs are pointed away from the neck. A better strap, maybe wider, would help this. Not thrilled overall with the narrow strap.
  • I set the toggle to pair my control with toggle in down position. Sometimes inputting control in my vest the toggle gets bumped up and then of course no control. An issue until I discovered what was wrong but now just something to be aware to check. Maybe I will re-pair using a side setting.

Easy To Use & It Works!
February 15, 2022
I've used an Alpha 100 for years when I was hunting my Beagles and loved the features, however both of my darling girls have passed away. I have a young Doberman now and since she is not a hunting breed and stays much closer to me when we hike out, I decided I wanted an e-collar that was easy and simple to use. After some research and watching a few of Steve's video reviews, I felt that the Sport Pro was exactly what I needed. I am not disappointed in this product.
Pros
  • No touch screen
  • More compact and less complicated
  • Does not need to be recharged frequently

Really like this Sport Pro
February 6, 2022
I’ve owned several e-collars over the years, and all but one were Tritronics or Garmin. This Sport Pro is by far the best! Very well designed.
Pros
  • Transmitter and Collar:
  • 1) 4 button control
  • 2) Use of tone and vibration without turning another dial
  • 3) Lightweight and durable case
  • 4) Positive thumbwheel control
  • 5) Use as a bark collar
  • 6) Turns on LED night light on collar
  • 7) Replaceable batteries
  • 8) Long battery life after charge
  • 9) Collar has a lot of adjustment holes
  • 10) Can't go wrong with the price
Cons
  • Nothing yet.

Gave us a well behaved dog!
February 5, 2022
I first tried to skimp with a no-name brand with just 4 settings and got horrible results - it was so inhumane. After watching Steve's video I ordered the Garmin Sport Pro and I'm so glad I did. The results have been fast and noteworthy! First, the collar is incredibly humane - inching the level up a notch at a time enables you to fine-tune just where your dog will respond without terrorizing them (no yelps or cries necessary). The controller is easy to learn - easy to use wearing gloves, true one-handed operation. The video series is well worth your time to watch, even if your dog isn't a puppy anymore or already has some basic training. After allowing some of his training to slide, I've now got my beautiful, intelligent sport dog back and he and I had so much fun while leveraging the collar as a tool together with positive encouragement and attention. I highly recommend this product.
Pros
  • It's got lights!
  • Controller is one-hand operation and easy to learn
  • Can operate with gloves on
  • Collar is humane to the animal (true stimulation without frying them)
  • Easy to avoid yelps and cries
  • Fine tune the stimulation level to match the circumstances
  • Collar is well made with micro-adjustments for perfect fit
  • Video series makes training easy
  • Bark suppressor looks promising (haven't used it, but based on other operation of the collar it should put the decision whether or not to bark firmly back on your dog)
  • Controller has rubber around parts of it - will survive being dropped
Cons
  • Does not come with a wrist strip - for the price seems like Garmin could have chipped in 10" worth of paracord.

Item was backorder from impacts w/COVID. GUN DOG SUPPLY notified me that orders would be in by mid-January. Item shipped and received per their timing. Great training collar have used it several times now. Watched video first so that I had a basic understanding of how to use an e-collar and it couldn't have been any easier. Great product, directions and service from GUN DOG SUPPLY!!

I'm very pleased with my new Garmin Sport pro collar and receiver, I can safely run two dogs on their daily run, with complete control from other walkers. The additional Sport XC allowed me to pair the two collars, to be able to run two dogs. I can also confidently use the Pro for Field training my Boy for Master. Customer Service is also great, for any advice on the correct equipment, or use of their product.

Lab training
February 2, 2022
I purchased this for my year old lab for some fine tuning in her training. I wish I would have purchased before. She is sensitive but now goes out 100 yards and obeying on command with now only a beep. The sensitivity control is the best in providing a gentle reminder. Now she walks beside me without a leash.
Pros
  • Easy control dial and set up. Holds charge for a week.
Cons
  • None other than the plastic collar you have to be sure is warm so it fits correctly and snug.

Why no lanyard?
February 2, 2022
Overall a great product. Far better than my old Garmin. I was surprised to find that they do not include a lanyard for the hand controller.
Pros
  • Dial settings allowing quicker and easier setting changes, light on the collar, louder tone, and longer prongs all make this a better product.
  • Garmin combined easy-to-use features with their field design and durability making this a very sound and useful product.
Cons
  • No lanyard for hand controller.

I have a 4 month old Wirehaired Pointing Griffon that has a mind of his own but just a reminder on level 2 brings his attention right back to the task at hand. The lighted collar is super useful at night when we're out by the camp fire or on a n evening walk. 5 STARS on the Garmin Sport Pro and 5 STARS for the customer service at Gun Dog Supply!
Pros
  • A must have for training a young bird dog.
  • 3/4 mile range
  • 10 level of corrective power
  • Tone
  • Vibrate
  • Bark inhibiter
  • Lights for night use
  • Expands to use with 3 dogs
  • ease of use is outstanding
Cons
  • Does not come with a lanyard for hand held controller

This unit is compact & fairly simple to operate.I would purchase again. Some improvements would be some way to attach a lanyard & the instructions included could be clearer.

This has boosted recall training to a new level of success!
December 19, 2021
Love the way it fits in my hand and the night light to see my dog wherever she runs in the dark. Would LOVE if the scale instead of 0-10 was 0-100 for finer tuning of stimulus but overall, no complaints!
Pros
  • Lightweight, waterproof, ergonomic, good stim/vibration/audio control, uncomplicated
Cons
  • Scale could be improved if 0-100 vs 0-10 for finer control of stimulus; this is just a friendly suggestion

Purchased this training collar for my young Aussiedoodle. He’s about as hard headed as they come. Will not listen if he’s got his mind on something else. After getting the right prones on the collar, he decided that I was the boss and not him. Very satisfied.
Pros
  • It works great.
Cons
  • None

Performs as advertised
December 11, 2021
The collar is smaller than some of the others I have owned and does not seem to bother my dog from day one. The remote fits nicely in the hand and buttons are easy to find. I would give 5 stars if it was not for the charging system on the collar. Has three cords you connect and then clips on the collar rather than one cord that plugs into a water tight charging port.
Pros
  • Small size.
  • Has lights on collar to see dog at night if you let him roam around a bit.
  • Affordable for all its functions.
Cons
  • The collar charging system has way to many connection cords.

Perfect tool to make our dog even a better pet
December 10, 2021
I purchased the Tri-Tronics SPORT PRO by Garmin based on the excellent information available on Gun Dog Supply's website. I have used all of the features of the Garmin except bark control. The night lights are great for keeping track of dog in the dark while she explores our 2 acre property. The included instructional DVD deserves a 5star rating as well! Our dog wags her tail when I take out the collar as she knows it is time to play!

Best of the Best
December 9, 2021
After doing quite a bit of research and watching too many review videos to count, I decided that THIS was the perfect collar for me. Good price, fast delivery. The multi collar function was very important to me, and this controller can operate up to 3 collars at once, which is perfect for me. I will, and have already, suggest this collar to anyone who is looking for an outstanding e-collar.
Pros
  • Up to 3 collars on one controller
  • Range
  • Simplicity
  • Multiple settings
  • Beeper
  • Vibrate
Cons
  • Second collar on backorder

BEST VALUE ON THE MARKET
December 6, 2021
The Sport Pro by Garmin is the best dog training collar value out there. As an outfitter for a nationwide retailer I sold all the major brands of collars to a diverse group of clients. I never once got negative feedback regarding the Sport Pro. As a consumer I have bred hunting dogs and had dogs as house pets and I choose sport pro because it works. Total range has never been an issue. Ten control settings is all anyone really needs, I started with 3, ended with 3. The bark limiter is a handy tool, I used it to train my dogs not to bark when someone comes to the door. The light is a great safety tool and good visual locator for low light conditions. My collars have proven themselves with years of dependable use. This Tri Tronic original, Garmin picked up and kept has been around a long time. There are other good products out there but this one is without question the best value. It only lacks the GPS tracking ability but since I don't hunt cats or coons and I know where my dogs are (most of the time) I don't need the expense of GPS. My hard-headed Griffon responds better to just the tone alone with no need for stimulation correction. This device just works.
Pros
  • Durable. Waterproof. Shock resistant.
  • More than adequate range.
  • plenty of correction setting
  • lights for location and safety
  • right size to slip into a pocket or hang off a belt loop
  • up to 3 dogs for one hand held
  • Bark limiter and counter
  • Tone and Vibe control without need for correction
Cons
  • No GPS (If needed)

Great little device!
December 6, 2021
Simple to understand operation. Handheld device feels natural in hand. Allowed me to integrate into puppy's continued upland bird training on his first day in the field. Have not needed to setup the bark collar function, (Luckily). Ability to turn on a bright light on collar could be real useful at some point, maybe while camping? No complaints at all!
Pros
  • Easy to understand functions. Great controls for one hand, 'no-look' operation.
Cons
  • Does not come with a belt clip or lanyard. That would be useful in the field.

The Garmin Sport Pro is compact and powerful. The tone and vibrate features offer an alternative to the electric stimulation. The dog pays attention when they know that the tone and vibrate is a precursor to the electric stimulation. Recommend this fully. Easy to charge and can supplement the collers with different colors.
Pros
  • Compact and powerful
  • Easy to use
  • Has the tone and vibrate feature
  • Includes a light on the collar.

The Tri-Tronics Sport Pro works great!
November 22, 2021
I am in the process of training my lab puppy for basic obedience and retrieving. I’ve owned and used Tri-Tronics in the past and loved it. This Sport Pro is the quality that I expect from Tri-Tronics but at a more affordable price.
Pros
  • - Quality and predictable transmissions.
  • - High quality and worth the cost over so many cheaper units on the market.

This collar has a ton of features, one of my favorite is the light you can turn on when it’s dark. The rest of the tone, vibrate, and tone functions work as expected. I think it is one of the best values in terms of features and price.

A lanyard would have earned 5 stars
November 17, 2021
The collar works great and is simple to use however it’s I didn’t realize Garmin doesn’t include a lanyard for the remote. That’s a slap in the face when spending over $200 on a product and having to buy a lanyard separately.
Pros
  • Easy to set up and use
Cons
  • Does not include remote lanyard, and momentary and continuous shock buttons feel the same. Would be nice if Garmin had a bump on one of the buttons so you can know what button you're pressing without having to look.

My Favorite E-Collar
November 15, 2021
For my first hunting dog, I bought the basic Garmin Delta collar. It worked great, but when I got my second hunting dog I knew I wanted this collar to handle both dogs. The Garmin Sport Pro is everything and then some. I love the ease of it for both dogs and the beacon lights are a bonus as my black lab mixes are hard to see at night. Great product and from my experience with my previous collar it will last a long time.
Pros
  • Tone
  • Vibrate
  • 3/4 mile Range
  • Easy to use and control levels of stimulation
  • Beacon Lights

Great collar
November 4, 2021
I got this collar on the recommendation of a Pro that I’ve been working with. What I like best is that it actually takes a little use of your finger to raise the level so it won’t accidentally move if you stick it in your pocket. It’s easy to switch between multiple dogs and the anti-bark feature is nice. Definitely a great collar in my opinion.
Pros
  • Easy set up
  • Easy to switch between dogs
  • Hard to accidentally raise shock level

November 2, 2021
This training collar has made training our 11 month old rescued German Shepard alot easier... I also recommend getting the training dvd. He is responding to just the tone now, highly recommended!
Pros
  • Easy to set up and use and the training DVD us very helpful
Cons
  • I bought the pocket clip for my handheld, and it has to be removed to charge the unit.
  • It's not hard to take on and off, but I wonder how long before it's broken from taking it off

Great training collar
November 2, 2021
We bought the Garmin Sport Pro because we had a dog that was a challenge to train when off the leash, incessant barking. I liked the Barklimiter feature of this product because it gradually increases intensity as the dog barks. However, our dog "talks" a lot so we have disabled the barklimiter but the normal mode with a vibration and manually controlled shock has worked exceptionally. Love this product
Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Great features
  • Battery seems to last a long time
Cons
  • A DVD with the collar.....who has a DVD player these days!! I found the video online, but why send the DVD, just give people the online location

Great E-collar for my Lab
November 1, 2021
Just ordered and received my Sport Pro to replace a previous Tri-Tronics collar that finally died. Delivery date was earlier than promised (Thanks!!) Controls were very similar (and simple to use) when compared to my previous collar. Receiver seems to be a couple ounces lighter and smaller that my prior collar. Really like the lighted collar feature when letting her out at night. One more safety feature to help keep our wonder dog safe. Would highly recommend for simplicity and ease of use. The charging system is more simplified than my old collar as well. Battery life looks to be much improved as well.
Pros
  • Ease of use, charging system, reduced size and weight of receiver.
Cons
  • The receiver now uses a 3/4 inch collar v. the previous 1". Can't use my existing day-go pink collar that I had. (My brother has two labs and uses orange and chartreuse to tell his apart in the field.) Not that big of a deal....

Great collar and simple to use transmitter. Works for training, upland hunting, and in the water. Our dogs are trained to ‘come’ to the collar’s tone, cutting down on noise like shouted commands at a distance or whistles. Reliable, great battery life, and simple selection among multiple collars. Bonus: Gun Dog Supply had a great price, and shipped it immediately. Thanks!

Garmin Sport Pro Two Dog Combo
October 27, 2021
My wife and I have two Brittany puppies with oldest being 6 months old. We were looking for the right tools to help us with training. Since we are new to Brittanys we did our research for the best methods to train. The e collar was one of the tools we wanted to add to our toolbox. Steve Snell’s product review online was invaluable to help us decide which system to purchase. The Garmin Sport Dog Pro is the right unit for us. The unit was easy to set up and learn to use. The training CD that came with the unit from GDS is also very practical and easy to follow. We are excited about reaching the end goal of well trained pups. Thanks Gun Dog Supply for your help.
Pros
  • Easy to set up and use.

Very happy & satisfied with product!
October 26, 2021
I was a little bit skeptical at first because of the price. I was previously using a SportDog collar that I used on my black lab before I got the GSP I have now. It was OK for what I was using it for at the time, but I always knew it was lacking certain features to really maximize the dog's potential. That collar up and broke one Friday right before a weekend bird hunting trip in south TX, so I order this Garmin collar off of a friend's recommendation. Boy was he right. This collar has an extremely long battery life for only taking 2 hours to fully charge. I can use the collar for an entire weekend on my GSP (taking it off at night) and still have battery left over. This collar has more stimulation levels then the SportDog, which comes in handy when you need fine tuning while working the dog. I also enjoy the LED beacon feature on the collar, due to the fact we hunt up until dark and having a dark brown dog, it becomes hard to keep track of him at dusk. All in all, I see myself getting a few years of consistent usage out of this collar due to how durable the collar and remote are and how easy it is to operate.
Pros
  • -long battery life
  • -effective at great distances
  • -no "weak points" in the collar for water to leak in during duck season like charging ports
  • -lots of loops on the collar allowing for more adjustability and comfort for dog
  • - has tone, vibe, and stim levels for any situation
Cons
  • - the remote is a little bit bulky and doesn't come with a lanyard which would be nice if it was included
  • - price is a little high, but justified after using the collar

Great E-Collar but strap needs improvement
October 13, 2021
E-Collar works great, but the 3/4" strap is terrible. If you're working your dog in brush or if they shake after getting out of the water the strap will roll over so the probes are facing out. It needs to be wider to prevent it from rolling. The problem persists regardless of how tight the collar is around the dog's neck. If the strap issue is corrected I would absolutely recommend this E-Collar!

First eCollar - works as advertised
October 6, 2021
I bought this for a 5 month old Wired Hair Pointing Griffon for obedience training. Watched Steve’s videos and started to purchase a larger Garmin unit with a tracking feature. Reconsidered mostly based on the practical issues of this size of the handheld device and the low likelihood that I would let this dog out of my sight for the immediate future. After two weeks of use, I am very happy with the device. It was easy to learn to operate and I am glad that I went with the smaller remote. The video was very helpful. The bark features work well. The dog does not seem to mind wearing the collar, although he figured out the connection to the remote very quickly. The controls on the unit are easy to use without looking at them. I like the tone feature and use it to verify that the unit is working. I sometimes forget to turn the collar on before putting it on the dog.
Pros
  • Easy to use controls, no need to see them.
  • Remote fits my hand easily.
  • Good features, like the tone option.
  • Helpful video included.
Cons
  • I have not figured out how to keep the remote handy around the house. I tried both the lanyard and the clip. Neither have proven to be good solutions.

I had a different set of training collars but the remote to use them was complex and too difficult to operate with 2 dogs. My son had this one and it's super simple and works fantastic. The collars on his are a few years old and have held up perfectly. Mine is still new but I expect they will hold up like his did. The shipping from this seller was fast and they had the best price that I could find for the 2 collar set.

  • Ease of use. Waterproof.

Garmin Sport Pro Collar
September 13, 2021
So far so good. This is the same collar that our dog trainer used on our started Lab pup. Easy to charge, sent up and our pup has responded well with very few corrections. Can't wait to watch the free DVD. Wanted to buy this at the local Cabela's, store Inventory said in stock... none on shelf... was told oh... it's on the truck.... it should be on the shelf within the next few days.... The store employee said I should just order it on line.... poor customer service. I went online all right! I did an internet search and I found Gun Dog Supply which advertised "We have in stock what we sell". Ordered online from them. Not only did the get my collar on time, they threw in a training DVD and a check cord. Now that is customer service.... Gun Dog will get my business from now on!!!
Pros
  • Works exactly as advertised.
Cons
  • Wished to collar was in orange and not black.... Easier to find if some how it came undone and was to fall to the ground. ( I'm just being real here!) other than that no other cons...

Learning as we go
September 7, 2021
Using an e-collar for the first time on 2 dogs - a 2yr old Gordon Setter and a 6mo old Springer Spaniel. We purchased the DVD as well, so we can also learn as we go. Our 6mo old is fiesty and very bullheaded. Even after being "shocked" she would still go back to the trouble. The 2yr old is more timid and she already knows her basic commands, but has regressed some with the pup.
Pros
  • Ease of use.
  • Single hand use.
Cons
  • Would be nice if the selection dial was backlit or settings were glow in the dark.

The collar works great. Put it on our 9 month old black lab Toby. He took to learning with it instantly. It’s has helped me to take his obedience to the next level. I can’t be happier with how it has worked for us. The remote fits in my hand perfectly and is light weight. The 10 correction settings is plenty. I’ve never had to use it over number 4. The Light on the Collar is wonderful having a black lab so we can keep a eye on him in the dark. Unless you let your dog run far off into the brush. Or they chase down animals at long distance. I don’t see needing more than this unit.
Pros
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to charge
  • Long charge life
  • Simple operation
  • Led light on collar unit let?s You know it on
  • Night light
Cons
  • The control for the setting of the collar turns up or down very easily, a couple of times while working in the field it has gotten turned up or down by bumping against my arm or body.

Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro
August 25, 2021
Appears to be high quality components, very good feel in your hand. I think a low, medium, high on each level would be better for me. Level three on this unit is more than i can take on continuous, i will say my dog learned very fast to be able to take him on hikes through the woods. i have yet to run into any distractions like animals or other people. I don't have to press the button at all anymore. It did what i wanted now i am going to work on making him heel beside me when i am in public areas. Oh i didn't tell you what kind of dog he is. He came to us as a rescue dog from Connecticut at 9 months old and we thought he was a black lab but turned out to be part hound also so he really liked to run with his nose on the ground oblivious to every thing around him.
Pros
  • very well built works well
Cons
  • I think all 5 videos for training should come for the price of the unit.

Wish the collar was a clipped together rather than a buckle. With the buckle it is hard to know if you are putting it in the exact whole as you did the time before.

The Garmin training collar is fabulous! Results achieved in 30 minutes. Smart dog and an easy to use product made my life easier. Getting a collar for the second pup as well. No need to shock, he obeys now with only the warning beep. We received it within 6 days! Thanks Gun Dog!

One of the best
August 4, 2021
When I first picked up the Garmin Sport PRO I was skeptical. I had ordered it for one of my dogs whose old Dogtra ARC unit had broken. Coming from electronic collars that have 100 levels or more I was concerned that I had chosen a collar that was way too hot for most purposes. However, I still purchased it, set it up, and began to use it with my dog. I could not have been more wrong. The consistency of stim, the ease of use, and the superior design of this collar has made operating it and communicating with my dog a breeze. Before I would struggle to keep the level of the remote collar at a level that my dog could feel it—especially while she was in drive. This is not an issue with the PRO. She normally works on a 1 and only has ever went up to a 3 whilst in drive. I couldn’t be happier with this collar and will probably only order it from now on. Thanks Gun Dog Supply for allowing me to make an informed and quality purchase.
Pros
  • Great design
  • Consistency stim
  • Great battery
Cons
  • Could've been a brighter color. The dark green makes it easy to misplace

There order confirmation process and shipping notifications truly feel like they are a small business that customer service is an important part of their business model.

Best Ecollar

My Brittany responds very quickly, setting is at 3 only, he mostly responds to tone or vibrate. It lasts for at least days (8 hours) in between charges… I’ve owned several others, but this Garmin Sport Pro is the best at the price. Gun dog supply is the best and fastest delivery of products.

BEST ECOLLAR ON THE MARKET!!!
July 8, 2021
I train dogs and this is my favorite ecollar to use and to recommend. It has the state of the art built in barklimiter, a super bright night light and the easiest remote to operate. I work with aggressive dogs, dogs with high anxiety, dogs that don’t come when called and dogs that run. THIS is the BEST collar for the families I help. It’s RELIABLE AND EASY! Don’t worry about the price- this collar is 3 in 1!
Pros
  • Easy to operate
  • Waterproof
  • Built in barklimiter
  • Works 5 football fields away

GDS and the Garmin Tri Tronics Sport Pro
July 7, 2021
Not being known as one for many words this will be a short review. The Garmin Sport Pro is as advertised. It is an excellent collar when used properly. I have personally trained my own retrieving dogs for water-fowling since the mid-90s and didn’t start to use an e-collar until 2010. I’m certainly not a professional trainer and use the collar only as needed, but I will say it works exactly for it’s intended purpose when needed. I bought this collar after watching the product video Steve so kindly took the time to make. Which brings me to purpose for this review. Gun Dog Supply, in my opinion is a first class store with first a class product line for near any type of dog training or dog care. There is a wealth of information on this website that will help novice and pro trainers alike make informed decisions on products they wish to purchase. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone who needs training supplies over other well known e-commerce sites. Steve, is clearly I pro and I personally appreciate his no BS product overviews. Oh and one last thing…. I have a runner who likes to visit the neighbors. At night he’ll take off through the woods hit the road and you’d never know he’s gone. The lights on this collar lets me see him making off through the woods. A simple tap of the vibe button on this collar turned him around so I didn’t have to spend half the night looking for him. That means extra sleep and thats priceless.
Pros
  • Collar lights, multi collar ability.
Cons
  • Not sure I care much for the tandem rig used for charging the transmitter and collar. It works just seems a bit messy.

I have tried the cheap brands thinking there all about the same, do the same thing, I was wrong and that is not easy to say (lol). The quality build, robust design, ease of charging and above all, the results. Game changer for me . My only regret is My wife will only let me have one dog. Get this product you will be glad you did.

Easy to use and it works
June 28, 2021
Bought this one for my headstrong Lab puppy after talking to a friend with a similar situation. The instructions are clear and the individual buttons for types of stimulation are easy to manipulate even without looking. The rotary dial for stimulation level works well and changes smoothly. Maybe too smooth and easy? I'm finding that it the level changes sometimes when carry it in my pants pocket. Surprised the pup once but now know to check the setting. when it comes out of the pocket. It doesn't happen on a lanyard. It worked like I hoped it would and after a few weeks the pup responds well to the Tone and Vibrate keys for basic commands. Highly recommend this unit.
Pros
  • Simple user interface
  • It works
Cons
  • Almost too easy to change the level. Maybe a little more friction on the level wheel?

It works amazing!
June 2, 2021
My dog is a hound/terrier mix (I know help me). I wanted to be able to let him run free in fields but learn to stay in eye sight. He would just shake off standard shock collars on tone, vibration and shock! I looked into hunting collars as he could be used for hunting and wow I saw such a huge difference. Even on vibe, he coming back when called. I highly recommend getting the DVD as well as it has influenced the way I train with the collar so much, in a good way of course! My boy can sometimes have the deep hound howl or the high pitch cry of a terrier. The bark limiter on the collar works to help keep the noise to minimum because I do allow my dogs to bark and cry a little bit as they are dogs and that is how they can communicate with us.

This unit is easy to learn and operate. Many times, you can skip the electrical zap and using the tone or vibration features. Made a big difference in the way our possessed aussiedoodle behaves during a walk. At times, the devil dog ignores the tone and/or vibration and does his own thing. That's when you try the zapper. Luckily, the amplitude of the signals can be adjusted. And there is always some level of amplitude that gets his/her attention. You just need to be sure and put the collar unit on snugly. There are many devices like this on the market, but the ones I've seen just don't have all the features or don't work as well. The quality and durable appearance gives you confidence that if you follow use and care of the device, you really can't go wrong.
Pros
  • Very effective
  • Quality construction
  • Easy to get familiar with the operation
  • Available one cent video to learn the basics
Cons
  • Some getting used to is expected
  • Not sure about the effects of water on the collar or control unit
  • You would think that the collar needs to be water tight
  • Don't let the attached image fool you. He's a wild animal who is now mostly controllable.

Our dog was a runner and wouldn’t listen outside of our yard. This collar has been awesome. In 2 days our dog was behaving! We only need to use the vibrate button now. The Garmin Sport Pro is easy to use and we are very happy that our dog obeys. We can now travel with him and feel confident that he won’t run away.

Great, easy to use e-collar
May 22, 2021
This e-collar is easy to use and I love the fact that I don’t have to choose tone OR vibration like lots of other models. Both are accessible from the remote. The remote is the perfect size, not too bulky or too heavy.
Pros
  • Vibration and tone both accessible
  • Long range
  • Perfectly sized remote
  • Light on collar so easy to see my dog at night
  • Long battery life....used for 2 weeks, everyday training sessions for one dog and haven't charged it yet.

The perfect training collar system for the techno challenged.
May 8, 2021
I wanted a training collar without all the bells and whistles that I could control without constantly having to fumble for multiple controls and look at a screen. The Pro Sport hits the mark. I have no problem controlling the unit with one hand while maintaining visual contact with my dog. I was initially concerned that ten levels of stimulation may not provide an acceptable level of gradation. That has not been an issue for my dog. The tone feature has worked great for controlling how far my dog ranges out from me. I can't speak to long term durability but my initial impression is quite favorable.
Pros
  • Light weight, compact and easy to use. The running lights are a nice touch.
Cons
  • None so far.

Such a great feeling
April 25, 2021
Well i got another gundog, not to hunt but because I love the personality and intelligence of these dogs. Jasper is 8 months old and knows most commands and is training well but as the spring comes and the ducks and geese on our lake show up we have been having a issue with running away. I understand his drive, but I am nervous about not having him in eyeshot. The Garmin collar has been a great addition to training and he seems to understand what i want from him. Our walk by the lake on Saturday was amazing. He stopped when he got on point and felt my gentle zap and command “come.” I really had a hard time going to a training collar but it was a great decision. The ease of use with the buttons and quick change in levels in one hand was very well designed. I would recommend this to anyone, it is not a punishment collar, it is a training tool. Thank you Garmin, you made a winner. Steve made it a good price, great video and website info.

April 17, 2021
Love the 3 dog capabilities, The shock and tone work well. The vibration alert is on weak side. Most of the dogs do not even notice. Older Dogtra collar was much better. Rarely had to shock ,only vibrate with Dogtra. This coller is good but not great. A good concept but Might be better suited for smaller dogs.
Pros
  • 3 dog capability, size and one hand operation
Cons
  • Weak overall on power and vibration. Charging cords need simplified.

I bought this particular model on the advice of a local trainer. My 6 month old Tervuren Belgian Shepherd is deaf and I needed a way to get his attention when he’s not looking at me. He’s doing extremely well with hand signals and vibrate mode gets him to look at me. If he’s doing something I don’t want him to do (chase after cars, people or other dogs for instance), then I have the ability to “stimulate” him 1-10. Other models often have like 20 different settings which is ridiculous. 10 is just right. The collar is small and the module is not too large for his neck. The 3/4 mile range is ridiculously long but it doesn’t hurt to have. The controller is also a nice small size and fits your hand well. I ordered the belt attachment so I can hook it anywhere you have a strap or on your belt. Excellent product! The “free” DVD was faulty and wouldn’t play (bad disc).
Pros
  • Exactly what I need
Cons
  • The free DVD was faulty

Works great
April 14, 2021
Before the e-collar our puppy was training well and then at 9 months he developed his own will :-) We had to stop our off leash walks through the woods and letting him run free on the farm. Deer carcasses and other distractions were more commanding of his attention than our calls. The collar training has gone well and given him the ability to run free off leash. The included training video is very good.
Pros
  • reliable, great range, versatile strength of correction, several correction options with tones/vibration/shock
Cons
  • remote is just-a-touch large for pockets and small hands. If I didn't need the range I would have considered one with a smaller remote

The collar is very responsive and intuitive. It has some nice safety features, for example when it is locked it must cycle through 2 clicks before it gets to the lowest level of stimulation, and then it has a length limit-- no accidental queueing to worry about. The buttons are intuitive and and the auxiliary functions for lights and "barklimiter" is a nice bonus. As always Gun Dog Supply has great service, the folks are kind and helpful and it arrived very promptly, even in this era of delayed covid shipping.

Nice unit
April 9, 2021
Very easy to use! Big buttons that make since. Well built and water proof. Its great for my field dogs and they respond well. It has a bit more juice then my old one which my dog learned to ignore. I would never sagest putting this one on #10 power. I tried #10 while holding it in my hand. Lets just say I'm glad I don't have a pacemaker. Because it put me (6'2" 340lbs Man) on my knees!! Unlike my old brand the buttons don't get stuck and there are four different buttons for 4 different transmissions. Plus a clear power wheel. So you can see easily which power setting you are on. The only draw back I found is the it did not come with a lanyard. So be careful not to loose it in the field.
Pros
  • Large easy to read and use buttons.
  • Water proof.
  • 10 power settings. and 10 means STOP!!!
  • Well built.
  • well worth the money. I think this one will last a long time.
Cons
  • No lanyard.

Best collar out there
April 8, 2021
I have had many collars and this one is the best . I have 2 Brittany's and I like the tone button and the ease of use to click the lever up and down to switch dogs and no led screen. We have only had to use the tone button and the dogs come back immediately. My dog was at a fast and determined run and I hit the tone , he stopped and came right to me. Best collar ever worth the money!!
Pros
  • One thumb click to use between two dogs
  • I like having a tone and vibrate
  • I like the light so at night I can see my dogs

We've had a series of training collars for our various dogs and all have been found wanting, for reasons varying from reliability to effectiveness. After a good deal of research, we settled on the Garmin SPORT PRO offered by Gun Dog Supply. GDS is a first class company and has a very helpful and easy to navigate website. Ordering was quick and easy; delivery was prompt. The SPORT PRO is perfect for our high drive German Shepherd. All in all, oustanding service and product.

It's great so far
April 1, 2021
I recently purchased the Sport Pro for my large sporting dog. I have been greatly impressed with the function and ease. I was debating between this and the SportDog, and I am happy I chose this one. Our trainer is a big SportDog fan, but she really liked the updated version of the Sport Pro. She said it was a great collar. My dog doesn't seem to mind wearing the collar and has responded well to training. I haven't watched the dvd yet (since our trainer uses e-collars), but I plan to.
Pros
  • Ease of use. The buttons and functions are easy to figure out.
  • It has an LED light than can be turned on, so I can see where he is at night...also if I happen to misplace the collar or if the collar comes off, I hopefully will be able to spot it with this feature.
  • It has a bark feature. I haven't needed it, not sure if I will use it, but I like that I have the option.
  • I haven't been able to try out the range, since I just began using the collar, but I like that it has a large range for the price.
  • Good battery life. With training it has remained well-charged for several days.
Cons
  • The only con so far is that the collar has a light that occasionally flashes to let you know if you need to charge it (green if it has a good charge, yellow if it has less than 50%, red--need to charge). The light is bright enough to be a little distracting for me (the dog doesn't care), but I'm sure I will get used to it. I wish it only flashed when a charge is needed, but maybe there is a reason for it working the way it does.

We needed a collar to train our young Irish Setter for Dove hunting. This product is perfect for obedience training and hunting training purposes. The LED light allows us to see our dog as the sun is setting and amongst tall grasses. It also contains enough features to allow us to choose how to train our dog! Would recommend this product for anyone with an energetic breed.
Pros
  • Contains many features and an LED light for nighttime.
Cons

We have never used e-collars previously. Purchased this product after explaining my dogs issues and goals with a Gun Dog Team Member who recommended the Sport Pro. He was very helpful in explaining all the features as well as making sure I did not over purchase for something I didn't need. The quality is top notch as you would expect from Garmin. My dog has responded well and is already doing much better with the off leash issues we where targeting. After minimal training time in the first week, we are already confortable with walking off leash while maintaining control. To our surprise, we only have to use a small level (2 & 3) of stimulations for positive results / response. Have used the Tone option in conjunction / simutaneously with stimulations and he is already starting to respond positively to tone only. The lighted collar is great as we live in country where its very dark at night and when we let him out at night, I can visually keep track of him. Very happy with the product and the free video that comes with it is very good in getting you started with e-collar basics.
Pros
  • Fits in hand well with easy one handed operation of all controls. Great long distance signal for recall. Lighted collar is great at night for knowing exactly where the dog is in dark.
Cons
  • None

Garmin Sport Pro for my Weimaraner
March 28, 2021
Love this product. Lots of people who see this on his neck think its a cruel way of training. I explain how it keeps him safe. The tone feature is great for me because I can't whistle loud, so when I push that button, he drops everything and comes straight to me. The light feature is great at night because it is so easy for find him. Another great safety feature. I can't say enough about this product and how it changes his attention when its put on. I get compliments everyday on his behavior and how well trained he is already. Weims can be VERY stubborn and very focused on things that should NOT be doing.
Pros
  • Durable
  • Reliable
Cons
  • I couldn't view the disc that came with this. Tried it in three different situations and still could not view. Otherwise the product itself is awesome.

It worked on a terrorizing terrier
March 27, 2021
We adopted a 30 pound young terrier from a shelter. The first couple of weeks we kept him on a leash when he went out but then tried him without the leash. 45 minutes later we were able to round him up - this happened twice. Since we live in an area that has, as our vet said "The real deal" for predators (mountain lions, grizzly and black bears and coyotes) we decided that we could not take the risk of having him blast off into the unknown on the trail of something that could easily result in him becoming dinner. We put the collar on him and went for a walk. He was fine for about 50 yards then off he went. I tried the tone - he kept running. I tried the vibration - he kept running. I then went to the single shock - he kept running (and yelped). I then went to continuous shock at maximum intensity and, since he was well out of sight, I could him him yelping continuously. When I got back to the house, he was under a brush. I took him in and removed the collar. He was uninjured by the collar but the point had been made. Now he goes out with the collar and all it takes is the tone to get his attention.
Pros
  • Ease of use - one hand.
  • Three attention getting levels - tone, vibration and shock.
  • Excellent range.
Cons
  • None that I have discovered.

Lot of features in a solid E-collar
March 27, 2021
I've owned one for years and purchased a 2nd one for a younger dog. I prefer it over others for the tactile controls vs digital. Easy to operate, very durable and has a decent range. Read the instructions or watch Steve's video to understand how to properly operate the bark feature. I have 2 Brittany's so would like to see a smaller/lighter collar at some point.
Cons

Cure for the easily distracted dog!
March 26, 2021
Best training tool,ever. I was reluctant to take the plunge into electronic collars but my english setter 1 year-old is as stubborn as I am and just too darn inquisitive sometimes. After one day of training with the collar, he listens better and responds every time to “come,” which was my biggest concern!
Pros
  • See above
Cons
  • None. Easy to use but instructions could be better Garmin!

Collar was as advertised. Like the collar with the light set up. Good when you may have to walk your dog when the area is not well lit. Controls are nice size and fit in your hands nicely. Easy to charge. Very satisfied with this purchase. Did not receive the training cd. Would recommend this product to a friend. Very satisfied with the merchandise that I have purchased from this company.
Pros
  • Nice size controls. Lights on collar for dark areas. Timely shipping. Item as advertised.
Cons
  • No CD.

Great Product and Great Service

I purchased the Sports Pro for my 4 1/2 month old German shorthair pointer who has boundless energy. After watching the video I was able to put the Sports Pro to use immediately. I live on three acres with close neighbors so it was essential that she be trained immediately and correctly to remain on my property. Thus far the Sports Pro has kept her where she needs to be. She had already learned to sit, lay down , come and stay so the Sports Pro was very effective in reinforcing the commands in the event she failed to heed my direction.
Pros
  • The video directions are excellent and informative.
  • The first video I received was defective and I called Gun Dog Supply. The gentlemen I spoke with was most responsive and put one in the mail that day.
  • Great service.
Cons
  • The various parts were in separate plastic bags. It would have been helpful had they been labeled. It took me a while to figure out what each piece was.

works great
March 20, 2021
Bought this for my two labs. We recently moved and dont have a fenced in yard anymore. With a few acres the dogs like to run into the woods and sometimes dont listen. I only used the beep and vibrate so far and they both listen real well to that. Range seems pretty good. It didnt come with a lanyard for the remote, not a big deal but i ended up getting one later down the road.

Merchant Response:Brian, I apologize, we like to include a lanyard but were out of stock for several months. I'll get one headed your way. Thanks, Ben
Pros
  • easy to use
  • easy to setup
  • has sound and vibrate options
  • can connect up to 3 collars
  • water resistant
  • small, light remote

Garmin Sport Pro
March 19, 2021
Recently purchased a Garmin Sport Pro E collar from Gun Dog Supply. Along with the collar I received Robin MacFarlane Basic Obedience E collar Training DVD and a long lead. The extra penny was well worth it. Being new to using an e collar, the DVD was an excellent resource. I watched it a number of times so that I could use the same techniques demonstrated in the DVD. My dog has done amazingly well after only one week of training with the collar. The collar also has a vibrate button and a tone button which I have used frequently and my dog responds very well. I use the tone button when he was 100 yards away and he heard the tone from the collar, turned around and came when called.
Pros
  • Works amazingly well to get my dogs attention. The collar has a momentary stimulation button along with a continuous stimulation button. I have the collar set at a very low detection and my dog responds well. The collar also has a tone button and a vibrate button which I have used which my dog also responds to very well. This product is great. It gives you four options to get your dogs attention.
Cons
  • None

Love this set up. Had one with my other chessie and you could not adjust the setting enough. Also this unit has vibration and beeps, that help, if you use the vib before, zapping works great. Only had to hit her with the shock once. She learn no to ignore the vibs
Pros
  • Great price and versatility
  • Tones and vibs
Cons

The training system actually helped us with our golden doodle. He is 14 months old and was extremely playful, stubborn and get distracted easily. We saw major improvement after 5 training sessions. He is our first dog, so we don't have a great deal of experience with dogs. Our success was attributed to the educational training DVD that was included.

Communication is the key
March 19, 2021
I adopted a 4 year old, 80# lab that had not been leashed trained. After working with her for 2 months I felt I needed a better way to get her attention when highly distracted outside and pulling. This collar is filling that void. I have been using it about 2 weeks and see improvement each day. I wanted vibrate, tone and stimulation. Currently using tone and low level stim. Worked well with leave it command for squirrel and passing car! It also has an anti barking feature I have not tried yet. Charging is easy. The receiver fits nicely in my hand and is easy to operate. The DVD taught me the basics and they replaced it when it would not play. Thanks.

Got the bundle for my two dog, much easier than having to deal with two different remotes. These work great, long distance and in the water. My GSP loves to swim, and my Puggle hates it! LOL Watches to DVD that came with the collars, was a big help!! Would recommend highly.
Pros
  • Long Distance
  • Waterproof
Cons
  • No lanyard with remote, easy to drop and lose. Would be nice if you could carry it around your neck!

This is the third set of these I’ve purchased. I am happy with the quality, we use them daily on our mountain Curs. The only issue we had this time is there was no lanyard included like the other sets. Since the controller has no belt clip the best way to carry is a lanyard. At this price it would be nice to include it...If you don’t have one order it separately. Overall it is a good unit for us.

easy to use
March 19, 2021
I was hesitant to order an e collar but so far the conditioning has been going well and my dog isn't scared of it. The handler really needs to condition the dog to understand the e collar and not just use it as a punishment. My dog and I are still learning with it but it has already greatly improved his recall in just a few days. FYI, my dog DOES hate the vibration mode so I don't use that. Some dogs are more sensitive to that. The Garmin Sport Pro is very easy to set up and understand. It has some flexibility in different settings but it's not overwhelming trying to figure the settings out (no barking, vibration, lights, etc.) Gun Dog Supply has been really responsive with customer service when I had questions and needed to exchange an order. I wish they had a bigger selection of pet dog stuff because I would definitely order everything from them instead of big box stores.
Pros
  • easy set up

Perfect Multi-Functional Collar - Tone, Vibe, Adjustable level w/ Cont. & Momentary
March 19, 2021
I am very happy with the collar because it allows me to apply pressure when my adolescent lab tests me. I have already seen increased attention and compliance when he is off-leash. The multi-functionality of the collar is helpful because I can use vibrate most of the time and low stim when needed. The light is an added bonus. It makes spotting a black lab at night in the backyard much easier. I was on the fence of buying this collar vs. one of the alpha series collars. However, my lab doesn't range more than 50-60 yards and checks back in with me frequently. In addition, I only have one dog and my friends do not have hunting dogs, so the additional features on the alpha series felt unnecessary (albeit super cool).
Pros
  • Everything a dog owner running 3 or fewer dogs needs (except GPS)
  • Light is helpful
  • Easy and intuitive to use with actual push buttons
Cons
  • None for my intended use

The Garmin Sport Pro is a great device for training your dogs to not be on leashes. There are extra functions that have not been offered before, like pulsing the sound, lights on the collar, etc. It is very powerful and once you have your dogs trained, you will only need to use the beep commands moving forward.

Our first E collar
March 17, 2021
We purchased the Garmin trite on if collar on the recommendation of my daughter. We watched the training videos before putting it on our 7 month old lab. She is a very excitable puppy and the collar took some time for both of us to figure out what works. She is now doing great and we are working off leash at local parks. The e collar gives us both the confidence to train in public and soon we will be heading out to the trails. Strongly recommend the training videos before first timers use the collar!
Pros
  • Great range, waterproof
Cons
  • A little bulky
  • Short prongs are a little too short but the long one seem to be too long. Once she grows into her skin we should be fine!

I have 2 border collies who are loyal, sweet, intelligent, and love to learn and work. However, they both would completely lose their mind (and hearing) anytime they stirred up a jackrabbit while out in the pasture. They chased until they completely lost the rabbit - often after a quarter mile or more - and then would come running back. It was their only fault, but it was a big one, and a safety issue. I ordered the Garmin E collar pretty much out of desperation. After watching the training video that came with the collars, I started with my dogs, using it only to call them to come back. They are otherwise well trained. They learned in a few sessions that the collar signal meant they must come back when called, no matter what they were doing. A light touch with the collars was all that was necessary. Then I put it to the test in the pasture. In less than 2 weeks, I could call them off of a rabbit without even touching the E collar remote. I'm a believer. What a difference.
Pros
  • Transmitter controls multiple collars.
  • Easy to toggle back and forth between dogs.
  • Remote is simple to work.

Great training/hunting/safety tool.
February 5, 2021
I’ve been a big fan of training collars for many years. This one is great not only for training, but for hunting and safety as well. I live in Alaska and there are plenty of moose and bear around. You never know how your dog will react when there is an encounter. This has happened to me more than once with different dogs, and sometimes with multiple dogs at once. You have total control with these collars. This collar has saved my dogs life from wild animals and vehicles. Learn to use it properly and you and the your dogs will both love it.
Pros
  • Works great, easy to use, added bark feature if needed.
Cons
  • Did not come with a lanyard or clip for the remote.

Replaced a Sport Dog 1825. Chose this for added feature of bark collar. Overall good collar. Sport Dog has larger range of stimulation settings. Both have shock, vibe, and tone. Don’t think you could go wrong with either system. Garmin has more features. Garmin does not come with lanyard. Kinda disappointing to spend $400 and have to spend more to keep track of the remote. Charger system has more connections than necessary, lots of pieces to loose. Somewhat over come by long battery life.

My previous collars (from 1992) were TriTronics 300 models. This new TriTronics Sport Pro model has new features: A tone & a vibrator. My one dog is somewhat oblivious to shock, but hates tones, so all I have to do is press the Tone button & she responds. I'm working to see each dog's response to the various buttons. Operation is very intuitive, which is important since you don't have time to pause & think before pressing a button. Also, I really like the other improvements over my old 300 collars: 1) Battery level indicators for both the remote & the collar, and 2) Turning the collar off with a simple button (vs. removing a stubborn plug). By the way, the fact that my TriTronics 300's lasted 28+ years, albeit with sporadic use, says a lot about the TriTronics brand!!
Pros
  • Very intuitive controls. Tone, vibration & shock options. Battery level indicators. Compact.
Cons
  • None

Greatest Customer Service & Best product on the market!
January 19, 2021
Please do yourself a favor and watch Steve's video. THIS is the best introduction to assure us dog owners that we will be purchasing the device that humanely assists us to train our dogs. While is is compact, and utilizes the ability to control barking, bad behavior, un-controled behavior, etc --- it enables the owner/trainer to easily reinforce Good Behavior by encouraging the dog to respond to positive rewards by actively paying attention. I talked to Steve's person (Duane - I believe) a couple of years ago about a much older Tri-Tronic Model that I had. He was knowlegable, personable, and professtional. I knew then that I would some day be ordering from Steve's trusted company. Thank you Steve, and your associates for "Good Old Customer Service", and offering the Sport Pro at an affordable price. God Bless You!
Pros
  • Very easy to learn the aspects to ease of use. Compact. Endurable materials on collar, as well as receiver & transmitter. Basic settings easily achieved - without there being too many or too technical. Remember: KISS (Keep it simple stupid) No offense intended. Charges fast and maintains charge. Excellent design on charging cord which only uses one outlet, by the way. Multiple collars available for implementing additional dogs to this one device system. Range is tried & true. I have always kept my thoughts open to: We (humans) are in reality training ourselves. The Sport Pro just "helps" !
Cons
  • Non what-so-ever! Please don't hesitate to purchase.

Good product and Great store
January 15, 2021
I am a 64 yr old lady who has never used an e-collar before. I got one because my 11 month old heeler/border collie mix is extremely hard headed. She is also very active and must be allowed off the lead or one or the other of us would probably end up dead. As she became a bit older and bolder she was not responding to my verbal commands 100% of the time until she got around to it. This was too dangerous for her, as we have coyotes in virtually our backyard. A friend who is a hunter suggested the collar and your store. I'm very glad I called! I had no idea the type I should get or how to use one. Your staff was helpful in getting me the correct collar and the CD was invaluable. I especially liked the way she showed the differences depending on how "trained" your dog was already. Frankly, since my pup knew the commands just didn't always want to do them, she responded extremely well after only a couple days of following the videos guidelines. I only had two issues and both were resolved by your staff in two separate phone calls. First, I couldn't figure our how to charge the collar and handheld piece. OK, so maybe I'm not the most techy or mechanical minded person, I have other fine qualities. Anyway, your guy explained how to do it in about 5 seconds and then it was easy. I called one other time because I wasn't sure if you could keep a pinch collar on with the e-collar as the pinch collars are steel. Again, in 5 seconds your guy answered my question, that it was fine. I totally appreciate all your help and I think the product is great. I will definitely recommend both to others. Also, kudos to your staff for not making an old lady feel like an idiot!
Pros
  • Easy to use and understand. Effective immediately.
Cons
  • If you have a smart dog, which unfortunately I do, then she may not respond as quickly to commands unless she has the collar on. This is not a feature of the collar per se.

Works very well for a young wirehair/gsp
January 10, 2021
Excellent customer service. Refreshingly quick and honest in their replies and suggestions. We decided on the Garmin collar for several reasons including reliability, simplicity, one-handed operation, three functions - tone, vib, stim. The two stim options - manual duration or burst are good to have on separate buttons. We worried our young, submissive pup would react too strongly to stim, but the low settings on this collar are so light she doesn't even respond to them. She responds well to the number 4 setting, or 5 when the situation is too exciting. The running lights are great for low light and night. The training video is also helpful. My daughters are watching it too. I'm a casual hunter without any formal dog training expertise. I cover a lot of ground hunting, and have fun. I want the dogs to stay close and perform reasonably but I can't spend lots of hours on training perfect obedience. This collar has made a bight and day difference. Well worth the cost for us and it was a pleasure working with the shop.
Pros
  • Sturdy
  • Simple/easy to operate
  • Reliable
  • 3 modes to communicate with dog (tone, vib, stim)
  • 2 buttons for stim (manual or burst)
  • Works great in the snow and wet
  • Running lights
Cons
  • Nope. It does what it says it will do.

January 6, 2021
Great product for training my wirehaired pointing griffon. He is a high energy dominate pup who is the most determined puppy I have owned in my 70 years. I purchased this with the bark feature which I don't really need because a little punch on occasion with the regular setting has been sufficient to train him barking without purpose is unnecessary.
Pros
  • Dial setting for intensity control is excellent design which replicates my Tritronics unit. In emergency situation flipping it to a more intense setting can be accomplished without visual reference.

Works as promised. Highly recommend.
January 5, 2021
Received the collar, transmitter and DVD as promised. The collar and handheld device appear to be well constructed and feel firm in your hands. Not too flimsy that it appears to flex when you push the buttons, and not too heavy that it will be a burden to carry. It comes with a mount for a belt clip, but one isn't included. There is a lanyard attachment gap at the bottom of the handheld, but it is very narrow and won't allow for any kind of loop even as big as a shoelace. You're only option out of the box is to carry it in your hand or put it in your pocket. The unit is fairly compact, so working it with heavy gloves on will be a challenge. On the other hand, you'll appreciate that feature in the summer. The controls are fairly intuitive, but it pays to read the owners manual first and give the unit a full charge before trying it out. We took the time during initial charging to watch the DVD. Great instruction, even if you aren't a first time user of electronic collars. After charging the collar and putting it on our 8 month old 35 lb female foxhound, we determined that she responded to stimulus in the 4-5 range and 6 got her attention really fast if she was highly distracted. We've never had to go any higher. The tone and vibration modes work well, and after just a few sessions she seems to respond better to hearing the tone. Overall a well built combination that works exactly as advertised and would be a perfect choice for training upland hunting dogs, family pets, obedience training, or agility. I haven't tested the range, or whether the unit is waterproof. I would read reviews from Lab owners or someone who has far-ranging gun dogs before buying if you think that may be an issue.
Pros
  • Lightweight but sturdy construction
  • Intuitive controls
  • Works exactly as advertised
Cons
  • No belt clip or lanyard included
  • Smaller size, while a feature, might be difficult to work with heavy winter gloves.

The transition from my old TriTronics Sport Upland G3 has been smooth. It was easy to get used to the new buttons as they are much like my old collar. Changing dogs is easily done without looking. Toggle switch is in spot that you will not accidentally move the switch. I like the position of intensity button and that it clicks so you know how far you are moving it. Again positioned so you will not unintentionally bump it it. Like that it has 10 levels.... not 100 like some collars. That is just too confusing for most clients of ours. Big flaw (and why I did not give 5 stars) is the narrow collar, which many of the brands use now. I do not know why they are doing this. I think it is less comfortable for the dog and easier to over tighten and choke off air to a dog we want to run marathons. If my extensive research revealed a product I liked with wider collar I would have switched. The 4 times I have used this it has worked well and easy to use.
Pros
  • Easy transition from old TriTronics Sport Upland G3
  • Buttons and toggle switches in good positions.
  • Intensity button clicks so you know how far you are moving it.
Cons
  • Narrow collar.

Our GSP (9 months) is good on recall when she is close - and when she is not running 30 MPH in the other direction. The e-collar helps us get her attention. The website videos, as well as the training DVD are invaluable. We particularly like the variety of options to get Bea's attention. The LED light could be a life saver!

First thanks for the excellent customer service and fast shipping from the folks at Gun Dog Supply. I had an older Tri Tronics unit which worked good but finally gave . This new Garmin model is light years ahead of the older unit in its ease of use, effectiveness and compact size. The hand held unit alone is worth the upgrade, its small size and the ability to operate with gloves on makes it perfect for those cold days out with your dog.

I have a 6 month old GSP, he is a typical rowdy bird dog. This product works well for me and him considering my overall plan for the pup. I specifically appreciate the tone, pulse and then stimulation if the other 2 don’t get his attention. The lighting option along with the no bark option provides me with everything I need to keep my companion safe and visible at night while running one last time before kenneling. Overall I would buy this product again and have recommended it to friends and family already.

Garmin/ Tri -Tronics Sport Pro
December 22, 2020
I’ve had Tri-Tronics collars for years. After many years of use two of my collars bit the dust so I order two Garmin Sport Pros. Really nice collars and controls. Collars are a little smaller than previous collars I have owned,which is nice. Built much better where the strap goes around the receiver. Transmitters are smaller with many options built in like: vibrate ,tone and built in lights for walking at night. The transmitters have many more options as to intensity, so I am better able to adjust for different dogs. I would strongly recommend these collars to anyone who is thinking about e-collars. I use them for upland and waterfowl. Just as a side note I have also owned sport dog collars and the Garmin Sport Pro is more durable and better made.
Pros
  • Quality , Size, Multiple options on the transmitters. Easy to use
Cons
  • None. Will buy again when needed

This is my second Garmin Sports Pro 2-dog Combo that I have purchased from Gun Dog Supply. The review of this product was spot on, and I could not be happier with the collar or Gun Dog Supply.
Pros
  • Every Thing
Cons
  • none

Quality product and priced right for the features
December 21, 2020
I have had several Garmin products over the years but this is the first dog e-collar. This is my third e-collar in the past 15 years and the best one so far. There is not much that I don't like about it but here are a few things that might improve it. 1) I wish that this model had an available loud beeper option that could be added. 2) I wish the controller was available in orange (so that I can find it more easily if I drop it. 3) I don't know if the shock levels are similar to other collars. With my other collars and other dogs, I would typically use a level 3 or level 4 momentary stimulus for correction. With this one I'm using level 7 and 8 and my pup is only 6 months old. It makes me think that this one has lower levels because I don't think my pup is any less sensate that my other dogs in the past were.
Pros
  • Great size. Proper range. Easy to find controls without looking. Quality feels good.
Cons
  • Stimulus levels might be less than other e-collars? Wish it was available in orange (the controller) so that it would less likely to get lost in the field.

E collar
December 20, 2020
This is my first “e” collar and so far it’s exceeding my expectations. Perhaps it’s the pup too. If you haven’t trained with an “e” collar before, be sure to spend the extra buck and get the training DVD & check cord. Both have come in very handy. Read all instructions first & watch the video. You won’t be sorry.
Pros
  • Signal strength, ease of use, battery life per charge.
Cons
  • Lanyard for handheld remote sold separately with no mention of much needed accessory in the description.

December 20, 2020
I bought this collar, wanting something that would be easy to operate but do everything I needed it to do. I have an 18 month old German Shorthair Pointer and it works great on her. She responds well to the tone and the collar will bite if ya need it to. Excellent tool, that works when its 10 degrees or 50+. Battery lasts a long time and the controller battery does to. I've charged it twice in all the times I've used it.
Pros
  • Great collar for the price. You won't be disappointed. It works great and is very affordable.
Cons
  • Only con is if you want to track the dog it isn't able to do that, but it has an excellent range of 3/4 of a mile.

Works Good
December 20, 2020
The dog collars work good. I am able to control both dogs when out hunting.
Pros
  • I like that I can control both my dogs with just one control.
Cons
  • Sometimes the control does not stay pared up and have to keep reparing them to the controller.

A godsend
December 20, 2020
My doberman is very stubborn and I trained him using a pinch collar. He was good on leash, but when he would escape through the front door he would not respond to commands. Utilizing this Garmin sport pro a few times on walks instead of the pinch collar familiarized him quickly with the method. I can now walk outside with him off leash without him running away and blowing off commands. I can tell the difference in his behavior too. He loves the freedom he enjoys on nature walks and if he gets too far I can just use the vibration feature to call him back for a check-in. It also helped break him of jumping/humping on everyone, and lastly the remote bark limiter feature is great. Instead of having to initiate bark limiter from the collar, it can be done with the remote. This feature is great, because of my dog escaped the yard while in bark limiter I can remotely go back into correction mode to recall him before a scared neighbor calls the police. My only regrets are that I didn’t buy this solid piece of equipment earlier in training.
Pros
  • Solid construction of device and transmitter.
  • Remote switching between bark limiter and correction mode.
Cons
  • I'm a leather guy so I'm not a fan of the plastic-ish strap but it does seem pretty resilient so I'm sure it'll last.
  • I wish it had a quick correct button to provide a high level of stimulation when the dog needs a quick correction. This would keep me from having to rotate the stimulation dial or look down at what number it's on. Basically it would prevent a lag in correction. I can nudge the dog with a 3, but if he decides he wants a cat, car, or squirrel, I want to be able to overcome his attention on those items quickly.

Garmin's great training tool
December 6, 2020
This is a fantastic tool for training my dog. The DVD was very helpful in getting started. Only have had it for a few weeks so haven’t explored all possibilities.
Pros
  • Easy to learn and use. Placement of buttons makes for easy use. Like the lights for locating when its dark outside.
Cons
  • Cords for charging can be confusing.

Great tool
December 6, 2020
I've been running this collar for 4 years on a pair of bird dogs, suites me just right. Quick toggle to switch dogs and simple buttons provide look free operation. This product is bomb proof... i use it daily, dogs swim with them. Had a trainer give me hard time for not using a collar with more settings, but i know my dogs, 90% of the time vibration gets the response I need, and it's almost never seen a setting above "4" (10 being the harshest). It is one of the best overall and most reliable peicie of gear I own. I do with the handheld transmitter was more Hi-visibility, but minor issue. Highly recomend.
Pros
  • Rugged, simple operation, good charge time after 4 yrs
Cons
  • None

Excellent system. Great choice
November 23, 2020
I bought this unit in July from gundogsupply.com. I have been extremely pleased with this unit. The battery life is unbelievable. My labrador got used to it quickly and it has greatly increased our time together when we are working. One of the greatest aspects I have found to be the tone in the vibrate feature. Even though he is 88 pounds, he responds very well to the vibrate into the tone at great distances. So much that I have seldom used the other features. I highly recommend this for someone wanting to train their own dog. This thing just seems to keep him out of trouble. What a great product PS the personal service I received from gundog supply in the follow up after work of this purchase is why I will return to buy again from gundog supply. Thanks
Pros
  • Great battery life, easy to set up, great well thought out features.
Cons
  • Not sure at this time. This thing has worked so well for me

I had an okder version of this collar for my previous dog/s. I loved it but always wished the handheld control was smaller. This new version is 100 x’s better. Smaller handheld w/many added features. Seems just a good quality & as durable as the previos one I had and that lasted me 15+ yrs.
Pros
  • Quality
  • Reliability
  • Packed w/well thought features
Cons
  • Limited accessories selection

Just what my dog needed

Great price. Quick shipping. Had an issue with the video but they sent a new one right away, so also excellent customer service. As for the Sport Pro itself.... was very easy to set up and learn how to use. Didn’t realize it but my brother bought the same one for his dog, also from Gun Dog Supply, over 4 years ago and he swears by it. Would absolutely recommend this.

Great Training Collar
October 30, 2020
Training collar is easy to use and has some great features. Lights work great for locating and making dogs visible at night. My first Sport Pro is 5 years old and is used everyday. I have never had a issue with it.
Pros
  • Training collar is easy to use with the buttons and dials. Collar running lights are very useful for locating dogs at night. Also, useful for locating collar when it fell off in training pond!
Cons
  • Collar should come standard with belt clip.

Easy to use and understand: "push and play"
October 14, 2020
I bought this collar for my husband, who found the 3 button system on my 550 annoying in moments of frustration while dog training! This one suits his needs (for retriever hunt test training and hunting) perfectly. Just pick a level, then all you have to do is push m or c! Just wish they made a form-fitting bright orange sleeve, like a cell phone case, since it's hard to see if dropped.
Pros
  • The built-in slot for a carabiner or lanyard on the transmitter is very useful, as is the compact, 'pocketable' size.
Cons
  • The numbers on the dial require reading glasses once you reach a certain age!
  • The straps on the old Tritronics receivers were much sturdier

Garmin e-collar
October 12, 2020
I'm a first time e collar user, so I was pretty hesitant to make the leap. I have an energetic Lab who can't walk nicely to save her life, and I wish I'd done this a year ago. I still have people who think I'm the worst owner ever but too bad. The online help was so helpful in selecting a model and getting the confidence to start this. I'm happy with my choice, price was good. Shipping was actually FREE to Hawaii, usually there's a little * in the small print. Thanks for that. My one complaint is the DVD that came with this offer, pixelated about halfway through. So the one episode I wanted on Heeling was a scrambled mess. If you read these, maybe a different disc or a link to online?? Thank you!

Merchant Response:Andrea, Sorry to hear about the trouble with the DVD. We'll get a replacement headed your way! Thanks, Ben
Pros
  • I like the more manual format, I don't have to look to adjust the settings and know the location of the buttons by heart. Good price range, shipping was actually free with fast delivery, even to Hawaii . Website help was awesome. The range of settings 10 is adequate, a friend suggested way more but I don't know that's necessary. Instruction manual that came with it was good, that and the DVD is enough to get you and your dog outside and moving.
Cons
  • disc was pixelated about halfway through ,so can't get details of the one lesson I wanted. Otherwise no complaints

Would give it 5 stars, but the charger clip had a production fault that should have been caught by Garmin quality control. Other than that, works great. Gun Dog Supply was fantastic. Sent new clip the day I called them.

LOVE IT
October 11, 2020
We received a rescue giant year old Old English Mastiff/Cane Corso cross who just might outweigh me. Upon arrival, she considered chickens fair game and cats a type of personal squeaky toy. Horse poo and cat scat were her favorite yummy snacks. She was enthusiastically dragging me everywhere on her walks. When she rough housed with the other dogs, furniture got tipped over.
Pros
  • Within a week, using the low numbers, she has become an angel and joy to be around. She now and then gets a warning vibration for rough housing. She responds immediately to the warning.
  • Outside she walks loose, rarely wears her collar. She completely ignores cats, chickens, horses and their poo.
Cons
  • The only negative thing about this collar is how long I delayed in making the purchase.
  • Already I have recommended it to a friend.

Excellent Training Collar
October 1, 2020
We purchased this collar a couple of weeks ago, and it has made a significant difference. Our dog is normally very well behaved, but needs correction from time to time. We had a cheaper model from another manufacturer we purchased on line that had limited range and inconsistent performance. This is a much higher quality product with consistent performance. Additionally, although we didn't think we would use the LED light feature, it has proven very useful as we send our dog out in the early morning and are able to locate him in the dark. (He's a black lab). Consistency is everything to not only us, but the dog as well and his performance and our stress level has dramatically improved with even less use. A quality product at a very reasonable price.
Pros
  • Quality
  • Performance
  • Ease of use
Cons
  • N/A

Sturdy and reliable - having an e-collar on my GSP has completely changed my life. She now comes when called and I no longer have a fear of her taking off into traffic or the woods (never to be seen again!). In comparison to other dog owner's e-collars, this Garmin is super high quality, built well and never loses connection. Would highly recommend.
Pros
  • Well made, easy to recharge and use.
Cons
  • Would prefer a smaller remote.

Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro E-collar
September 25, 2020
I have trained pointing dogs since 1988 using various brands and the Tri-Tronics collars always seemed to work best for me, I recently decided to upgrade my old Garmin collar to this Sport Pro and it works great, I really like the green light you can see from a distance so you know it is working correctly. I also like the number dial as opposed to the digital way the old one worked, so far I have no negative remarks about it. Be sure and order from Gun Dog Supply for best price and quick shipping.
Pros
  • Can correct 2 dogs using the same transmitter
Cons
  • None so far

Does what it says it will do.
September 23, 2020
We have a 16 month old Catahoula using the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro. It's working well, easy to use, relatively comfortable on the dog, and easy to clean dirt off of. We've used other collars in the past and this is as good as what we've used on other dogs. Thank you for a quality product.
Pros
  • number of features - tone, vibration, nick
  • waterproof quality because here in Florida we have a variety of waters - salt, brackish, fresh
  • ease of cleaning
  • ease of charging
  • simplicity of instructions
  • usefulness and humaneness with a breed that is very strong willed
Cons
  • zero so far

Perfect choice of collars
September 23, 2020
Had collars for about 2 weeks now. The 2 collars allow us to use 1 remote for both dogs with ease. The top switch colors match the colors of switch making it easy to teach my wife how to operate. The collar itself is built tougher than the other collars we have had. We live on 5 acres in coyote country with little fencing. The boys know that with the beeps they are to come and sit. The younger one responds real well with less than #4 correction when needed usually when he is amped and he will change his focus back to the operator. The older dog knows that a correction will follow if he does not obey the beep so he is fairly obedient. Both collars fit comfortably. The head lights allow us to find the dogs at night as we only have star light once sun goes down. The bark limiter we use on the younger dog when inside and he is slowly understanding that barking is not allowed unless there is a real threat. Easy to set from remote and switching between modes. Hoping to not use after the learning is done. Great product for how we use the collars to keep the boys safe. We are hoping the water rating holds up as we have not been to the lake yet. Thank you Gun Dog for your help with the selection.
Pros
  • Ease of use
  • Collar color matches remote settings
  • Switching between modes is easy
  • Headlights for night tracking
  • Bark limiter easy to switch into from remote
  • Doesn't seems to bother dogs wearing
  • Tougher built than others
  • Last 3 days on one full charge
  • Green flash of LED makes night time easy to see dog
Cons
  • Really haven't found any as they were plug and play
  • Wish remote came with a belt clip

Training a young Golden female
September 23, 2020
I am just recently getting started with the collar. I have trained many dogs over the years but have never used a collar. So, we will see. My first step was to condition my dog who is a 15 month old Golden female. It surprised me that I had to set the collar at a level 8 which does nay leave much room for more should I need it. Anyway we will see, Great service from Gun Dog Supply. Thanks.

Significant changes from my 80's vintage AL70LR
September 16, 2020
The new collars like the Sport Pro are such great tools, the old collars got the job done but the new lower-key stimulation, Vibration, and Tone allow you to communicate with your dog vs simply sending the stronger "you did something wrong" message. Of course even back then we realized the importance of conditioning and making sure the dog understands the meaning of the stimulation and that is key as well today. What is nice now is the ability to quickly access all the options and even change the stimulation level without even looking at the controller.
Pros
  • Nice compact and lightweight collar and controller that is easy to use and well built. The DVD is a nice add on as well, especially for those who have not done any work with a collar before.
  • Service from GDS excellent as always, shipping was fast as usual.
Cons
  • The charging system is really a sea of connectors that are not needed and I fear they will come apart or fail from repeated use. I chose to apply large size heat shrink tubing over them so they stay connected but Garman/Tri-Tronics could do a better job on that system. See circled areas on photo.
  • Gun Dog Supply while I appreciate the inclusion of a lanyard, stepping it up to something a bit more substantial and more comfortable would be nice. Honestly, I had several ID and access pass lanyards from various events that were giveaways that are a bit easier on the neck and allow the remote to snap on and off. Just a thought.

Awesome Product
September 15, 2020
I have owed 3 Sport Pro's and my hunting/training buddy has had 5. We train Chesapeake's to be "meat" hunters and that requires each dog to work hard in all types of nasty conditions. So we need our dogs to listen to commands the first time and not play stupid. That being said, this training device is awesome in getting the point across to one of the most difficult breeds to train BUT once they get it, he/she will never forget what you trained them to do. Training/training/training is what gets my dog focused so I use the Sport Pro as the teaching tool that gets results.

Merchant Response:Michael, Your Garmin Sport Pro should have come with a GDS Lanyard for the handheld. I'll add a couple of extras to the new order you placed. We appreciate your business! Thanks, Ben
Pros
  • Tough,dependable,holds power under any condition (icy water) /and keeps doing its job. Sturdy and will survive a puppy chewing episode :)!
Cons
  • Steve, I wish it came with a device attached to the hand held so I could hang it around my neck.

so far so good
September 8, 2020
As a disclosure, I'm a first time hunting dog owner. In my case, a wirehaired pointing Griffon. I researched e-collars pretty extensively including watching Steve Snell's reviews of various collars. I landed on the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro based on that research and input from fellow dog owners/hunters. Overall, I've been very pleased with the performance of the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro e-collar. As important, even with just a handful of sessions with the e-collar his "listening" vs. ignoring me in the field and beyond has significantly improved. Note, for most situations, level 1 - 3 vibrate is working for us.
Pros
  • Simple to use from the set-up to the using the handheld transmitter. In fact, I'd say the simplicity of the handheld is probably my favorite feature. Even with just a few uses I feel I can use without having to stare at it to find what I want to do.
Cons
  • Really, no major issues thus far. It would be helpful if the actual collar were marked in some manner to help remember the best fit location.

Fantastic Set
September 8, 2020
I have two beagles who've previously had the Delta Sport XC collars. We lost the controller so instead of buying another one we decided to upgrade since we were not satisfied with that model. This model is heads and tails above the Sport XC. Battery life is significantly longer and the LED light feature on this model is worth its weight in gold. If you have a big backyard or you let them out in the woods at night the LED is super useful. If I can't find one, and their nose is to the ground, I can turn on the bright LED light and see where they are at from far away. It's also a safety thing for visibility by cars. Overall, the collar is bigger than the Delta Sport XC but not too big. Again, I use these on two beagles, a smaller one and a large frame one. Very happy with this purchase and I wish we would have upgraded long ago.
Pros
  • Battery Life
  • LED Light
  • Ease of Use

September 8, 2020
We had been researching all different kinds trying to find one that would work best for us and our pup. We chose this one based on it being a Steve’s pick and what he had to say about it. We couldn’t be happier. It has been easy to use and very effective in keeping our pup close to use and safe while still giving her the space she needs to get the activity that she needs. One of the features that drew us to this one was that it was reported to be waterproof and that the remote could float. We live on a lake and do a lot of swimming and boating. We have used it in the water several times so far and it does actually appear to be waterproof and the remote actually does float.

Garmin Sport Pro 2-Dog Combo
September 5, 2020
I was gifted a new pup to accompany the pointer we already had, so I needed an additional E-collar system. Instead of fumbling between two systems, I decided to look for a product that could manipulate multiple collars with one controller. I wanted a controller that I could easily manipulate without having to constantly look at the settings, and the collars needed to be rugged with an ample range, water proof, shock proof and most of all clutts proof. “Hahahaha” The Garmin Sport Pro fit the bill perfect! I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to use especially when selecting commands between collars, and the recharging time is fast. The new pup had started a habit of yelping while chasing after the older dog, but the anti-bark settings on the collar has been very effective In curbing that habit. I do recommend this product to anyone who needs to control/ train multiple dogs, and is looking for a rugged and easy to use system. Gun Dog Supply shipping are second to none, I was given tracking information and an estimated time of arrival, I received it a day before their calculations. Shipping to Hawaii is always a crap shoot, but my package arrived on time!!! Great service from a great company for a great product. Keep those shoe laces tight, dogs hydrated and gun at the ready. Safe Hunting...
Pros
  • Easy to use, quick recharge, rugged construction, water resistant, collar made of tough materials.
Cons
  • Transmitter/ Controller comes without a belt clip or lanyard, receiver on collar a bit bulky,

Pros

Cons
  • Specific charger (I'm not sure if this is really a con) for the collar...don't lose it!

Great collar for my GSP

Great collar for a GSP
September 3, 2020
I purchased the collar to replace an older Sport Upland G3 and I am not disappointed. The range is good, and for my headstrong follow-my-nose 8 year old GSP, I never have to go above a 5 on the STIM dial. A nice upgrade from my old collar is the vibe and tone, which is usually all I need to get his attention. The ability to turn the lights on and off from the remote control is especially handy.
Pros
  • Vibe and tone functionality, along with the lights on the collar.
Cons
  • My older collar came with a 1 inch collar that feels much more durable.

This is a fantastic product it has made dog training so much easier. The ability to turn power up and down with a dial one handed is perfect. Being able to turn bark mode on without having to take the collar off it also extremely handy. Bright LED light are useful if u need them. Battery lasts about 3 days on the collar unit with only shutting it off for 8 hours a day and the controller lasts 6-9 days.
Pros
  • Great range
  • Great battery life
  • No delay on stimulation
  • Waterproof
  • Easy power dial
  • Ease of use
Cons
  • No lanyard comes with the controller

By far the best!
September 3, 2020
I was a professional police K-9 handler and trainer for close to 10 years and we only trusted Tritronics/Garmin for our service dogs. Now that I am retired and only working hunting dogs, I decided to try out the Garmin sport products. This collar is awesome and by far the best on the market for the money. I have tried and owned a handful of Dogtra products over my years, but their batteries and chargers seem to break often. If you want a high quality product at an affordable price, this collar is for you.
Pros
  • Price
  • Battery life
  • LED lights at night

I had never trained with tone before, only with shock. I can’t believe how effective the tone is! When my dog would get on a deer while I was horseback riding she would often ignore the shock from my older training collar. This collar is so effective. It takes one mid range beep to get her to stop in her tracks and come right back to me. The remote is very easy to use, lightweight and a good size. I felt like I got my money worth after only an hour of using this collar.
Cons
  • I do wish the remote had a leash on it so I could hang it around my neck.

Great reinforcement for recall and other known commands.
September 2, 2020
Easy to use & carry without distractions, after a few days of using it becomes second nature without having to search for keys or power mode ... easy to charge & charges quickly, l never worry about running out of power while in the field.
Pros
  • Easy to use, long standing charge, and built to withstand any environment my dog will encounter.
Cons
  • None I can think of.

Works Well
September 2, 2020
This is next generation collar for my English Setter and Weimaraner. Have had 3 other vintages over the years and this unit has improved in most areas, (lighter weight, range, battery status indicator, and usb recharging of collars and transmitter.) Collar light is a nice feature. One downside is that the collar is narrower, and on one or two occasions the collar unit has flipped upside down while on the dog, thus making the prongs useless. I have used these types of collars for over a decade and this has never happened before. While some will say collar was too loose, my response would be that my dogs have never had issues such as this with previous collars, and previous collars worked as advertised, with no abrasion injury to dog’s neck. This is not a big deal and I am making the collar tighter in light of the narrower width of the collar. I haven’t had to use shock, as both dogs, ages 13 and 8, respond well to the tone, based upon their previous experience with these type of collars. I would recommend this collar. However, the only reason I purchased this collar is because replacement batteries were not available for my previous collars, and rechargeable batteries have a life span.Thus I hope that when the time comes, the manufacturer offers replacement batteries, as these units are expensive and fully capable of continued service with just a new battery.
Pros
  • USB recharging, collar light, range, light weight, battery status indicator
Cons
  • Narrow collar conducive to unit flipping over, disabling effectiveness of prongs, particularly with hunting dogs going through heavy cover.

My experience with gun dog supply and the new Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro Have both been awesome. Steve makes it easy to shop with his website and generous nature. I love the new collar and so does Ruger. Thanks Steve, you’ve got a customer for life. As to the new collar? Garmin has a new son as of today. I’ve experienced them and all and bought them all. If you want a professional collar with a reputable back bone, look no further. My friends tire of hearing me sing the Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro’s praises, but you get what pay for. Quality.
Pros
  • Led lights
  • Tone
  • Vibrate
  • 3 dog capacity
  • Bark limiter
Cons
  • Doesn?t come with clip on remote

I am a waterfowl hunter/trainer dog owner. I love a few of the features on this sport Pro. Keep in mind...I have only had this two days. The LED lights are going to be great for lighting up my dog before sunrise. The four button design puts the controls right there for you. The transmitter fits in the palm of your hand. All-in-all...I love this thing so far. PS...I added a lanyard and belt clip. I like both of those, also.
Pros
  • lightweight/small...LED lights...four button design....good range (I think)
Cons
  • not sure of any drawbacks for me yet

No Joke. This thing has been a complete game changer in terms of enjoying time with our boy! I belabored spending more than $100 for something I wasn't sure we'd get value from but am glad I followed the solid advice on Gundog Supply and went with Steve's Pick. When we first got it, the dog was oblivious, so I called gun dog and Steve suggested snugging it up and making sure it rides high on his neck. Did that and BINGO... the dog responded instantly to the vibrate and quickly got the hang of it. Of course, he also started to figure out the vibrate isn't much but adjusting the correction level to even 3 would instantly get his attention. He's since gotten a bit more bold and will sometimes take a 6 if he's really wanting something, but without fail comes running back. I've shocked myself with it to see how bad it is and it's just like a good static pop from an old television set..but plenty to get his attention and we haven't had to go beyond 6 Furthermore, the boy HATES wearing a leash and loves putting this thing on because he knows he's going to have freedom. We live in the burbs and I don't hunt but we take him to woods, etc and he cuts loose swimming etc and loves it. This has changed my relationship with our dog and both of us enjoy not being tethered to a leash. Few Things on the device - waterproof and battery life/charge have been great. I just get in habit of putting on the charger once a day at some point - range is awesome. He's been almost mile away in woods and comes running - at first I thought the material on the collar was a bit strange but it had held up awesome in mud, river water, you name it! - the old school analog dial and simple buttons €”LOVE IT. Can be -10 and I don't have to take it out of pocket and I know exactly where it's tuned. If I forget, I back the dial without looking to the stop and then count the clicks up. Simple and works great without having to pull it out of pocket and look. - we haven't used the two dog feature but it's great to have even with one dog because you can toggle the switch down and not worry about your dog getting zapped if you sit on it with it in your pocket. Bottom line - Would highly recommend you stop the search and worry about if it's inhumane to use something like this on your pup. YOU have all the control you need and it's about getting the dogs attention, NOT €œshockingly them. I'm a firm believer that if you use this properly it'll be a game changer for you and your dog. I know Willy would give two paws up as well. I can't recommend this thing enough to anyone and Gun Dog support was fantastic. Their price was excellent too but II'd personally pay More here for their support than some bozo that doesn't know anything about it on amaz on or elsewhere. Stop thinking about it and GET IN THERE!!

The Garmin Tri-Tronics SPORT PRO is a great training collar. The only issue I had was with the power supply for charging the collar and had unit. It is somewhat disjointed with a few cables that must be plugged together, and the charging unit that came with the system was intermittent. That was solved since Steve and Gun Dog Supply replaced it right away. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.

This dog hunts. What do I like: Service from GunDogSupply is always awesome. This was not my first purchase from them, they always process and ship my orders quickly. The dial is easy to manipulate, low settings for low distraction situations, easy to dial in higher pulse when distractions are most challenging. Almost everything you need is included. The dials are easy to use without looking at them. Water-resistance has worked flawlessly. Used it for over a month, everything is working perfectly. What could be improved: Collar width is narrower than I'd like, would prefer the 1" wide collar. The collar seems to rotate around on my dog's neck, doesn't stay in front where its supposed to be, easy to move, but I have to keep watching it. Even with long probes my Yellow lab with a thin flat coat is very rare but often enough to make me write about it, losing connection so pulses do not transmit to the dog (turning it up does not elicit a response while tone, lights, and vibe are all working). Making the collar tighter will help, but then she can't breathe....wider collar could help.

I have a Garmin Alpha for use in the woods and fields but I got this collar as a second collar to use for exercising our dog in the foothills around our city. I am particularly happy that the controls are a bit more accessible for my wife to use than the controls on the Alpha, particularly adjusting the stim level up or down depending on distractions (e.g., other dogs, rattle snakes, coyotes, etc.). It is also great that it has stim, tone and vibrate as we use all three for various training purposes. It does not have a tracking function so it does not take the place of my Garmin Alpha for hunting in the mountains but I think it could easily be my primary hunting collar for open fields.

The biggest complaint is that the "60" hour run time is nowhere near what I get, which is around 32 to max 34. Second, the plastic collar is very narrow and thinner compared to my Tritronics Sport 50. It is showing a crack on the edge and some rough spots, indicating it will tear in the semi-near future. I also have to keep it up high or it will not stop my alpha dog from "aggressive behavior." He is in attack mode, but is nowhere near strong enough, after the start of aggression. Granted, this is an ALPHA, ALPHA, male from East German other border protection lines, so it is very hard. When in drive, he is something else. But, I had hoped this would provide the needed stim and durability. So, I know that my use is probably harder on the device since it's on 16 hours a day, but rarely is it used to stim since the verbal command is usually good to this well-trained dog - unless it is - not! Then it's not hot enough. Should work well for about any other dog though! So my grade is for me, not necessarily what it would be for you.

There are several positives about this system: - range is more than adequate for my purposes - the lighted collar makes finding a dog at night simple - I really appreciate this feature - the control is pretty intuitive, I don't even look at the buttons anymore - I have not had any issue with water. We live on the water and the dogs are in the water every day. The collars have had no issue yet. (this was the apparent failure mode of the 2 other brands of collars I used before buying the Garmin) I have also found some concerns for this system: - On multiple occasions a button on the controller has stuck resulting in continuous toning and in one case continuous shocking. I could not turn the shocking off and had to remove the collar from the dog. This issue worries me every time I use the controller - The dual charger that came with the base system does not consistently charge both the collar and the controller simultaneously. I often have to charge each collar on the dedicated collar charger received with the second collar. This requires longer charge times and longer times the dogs go without the collars. -

My husband and I love rescuing failed hunting hounds (gun shy, retired, etc). However, in order to keep our most recent addition safe from having her nose take her away, it became obvious we needed something to 'turn' her when she found a scent. I trained her that the beep function is a treat/positive clicker sound and it has worked perfectly. I love all the functions on this collar and especially that I've never needed to actually use any other function on it! Also excited about the LED function with a mostly black dog.

The Garmin Sport PRO is absolutely great for us and our pitbull application. We have a tough little gal to work with, so we needed something that was effective, reliable, but also easy to use. There are so many of these devices even if you do a lot of research, like I did, I still did not have a good understanding of what I needed. In my research, I noted that Gun Dog Supply had a serious amount of training info and short videos of Steve describing the products they sell. These videos are easy to watch, and I was able to narrow it down to the features that I needed for our dog breed and those that I just wanted. The Garmin Sport PRO had all, including the trusted Tri-Tronics technology that has been around for a very long time. The device I wanted needed to be simple to use and be built rugged for outdoor use. The information given by Steve in the videos enabled me to compare features as well as designs of both the collar and the hand held transmitter. In some devices, there are so many bells and whistles to use, which in reality are not going to be used correctly or even at all in my opinion. The Garmin Sport PRO has just the right balance of features, some of which are overkill, but overall the Garmin Sport Pro is really easy to setup and start working with it right out of the box. It also feels sturdy and handles well in your hand which is critical when your attention needs to be placed on the training. Thanks again to Steve and the great staff at GDS for fast friendly service and helping dog owners understand that we need training just as much, usually more, than they our dogs do! Thank you again.

This was an upgrade from my 10 year old Tri-Tronics collar. WOW! It is awesome! They said you could use the handheld controller and not look at it and focus on your dog, and IT'S TRUE!!!! Every function is easy, and the different levels are effective for different distractions. Best training tool ever for my dog. I'm very happy and have an obedient happy dog :):)

Our boxer is 6 months old and before we got the Sport Pro we could not let her off leash as she would just take off. Now she comes when called, sits on command. This is all within two weeks of using the sport Pro. Usually I only need the vibrate mode to get her attention. The collar is simple to use and very effective. I would definitely recommend this collar to anyone with a dog with a attention problem.

I live in the country so I let my new puppy out to pee and poop in the mornings. It's getting darker now and he's black, so I turn on the LED lights and I can see where he's at. He knows what come means but as a puppy his attention span is short. I use the vibrate to get his attention when I say come. It seems to work for now. This is my first e-collar. It is user friendly and there are not a lot of buttons to get confused over. I would have given it a 5 but I don't have any experience with other collars.

This product is a game changer with my 6 month old Brittany. He had basic training but was starting to take off and I could not control him even with treats. The e-collar changed this quickly, in one day. I now have complete control over the dog and I rarely have to go over level 2. He responds 80% of the time with no reminder. I highly recommend this collar to anyone with a high energy dog that they want to work with off leash. This dog will also be used for hunting, but is mainly a pet.

The Garmin Sport Pro is a fantastic collar. My Husky is a stubborn one and when given the chance, he loves to run and thinks everything is a game. The range allows him to roam where he likes while the no look, easy to use controls allow me to get his attention at an instant. Great product and well worth the investment.

I was looking for something like the G3 Basic Sport Pro that recently gave out on me. It's been a gem and couldn't find anything like it. I was going to buy another G3 Basic off ebay when somehow I stumbled upon Gun Dog Supply. I'd seen your review on the Delta and read customer reviews on it, and it seemed like a step down from the G3. The Garmin/Tri-tronics Sport Pro is everything in the G3 and more. I appreciate the loudness of the beep and the extra features such as the light and bark limiter, but I honestly just use the basic tone and shock mode primarily and am very happy. Thanks for delivering promptly and for the extras that come with the it such as the DVD. Thanks Steve!

I had the Tri Tronics Flyway G2 before, which is similar to the highest end Garmin training collars. I was a little concerned about the durability of the smaller transmitter, but it has been great. For duck hunting the size does not matter, but for pheasant hunting the smaller transmitter is light enough to wear around your neck for easy access. I love all the new features, such as tone, vibe, lights, and built in bark collar. This is a great unit with a LOT of functionality for the price, and my concern about durability is long gone.

Both dogs were off the leash within two weeks. Recall is consistent, so they can now run in the woods, etc. Our Cur was jumping on people and that has stopped. They are both more secure and extremely happy dogs! This product is fantastic! Just buy it! By the way, these guys are so helpful when you call and the products shipped promptly. I have to say I enjoyed giving this company my business, rather than the big stores!! These types of businesses are what makes America great!

It's almost magical! Our dog is a bit hard-headed and gets in a 'zone' where it's hard to get his attention, which is why we decided to try an e-collar. Did a bit of reading and called Steve at Gun Dog Supply, and he lead us in the right direction for us. We're thrilled with the ease and convenience of this product. We can switch from mode to mode without looking because of the design of the transmitter. Pup is now just over a year old, and we can actually consider training him to hunt. The battery life is fantastic too. Definitely recommend this product.

Have been working with dogs for about three weeks and training is going very well. Garmin Sport PRO works as advertised, no problems with initial setup or during training.

I bought this unit as an upgrade to a previous e-collar that I used exclusively on my Coltriever. My older, smaller Cairn Terrier had developed some crazy behavior over the years when we encounter other dogs on walks, or hiking so I wanted to make him be better - ha! Well it worked amazingly well, I do not use anything but the vibrate and the tone, and his behaviors have changed all for the better. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?! Also, I only wanted to hold one handheld controller, and this sport version is a good size and easy to switch between dogs. I am sorry I waited so long to do this!

This is a really good E-Collar. The fact that it has vibe and tone along with 10 different stimulation levels and the three dog capability is great, but the light feature is awesome and worth a little extra money compared to other models. The only drawback in my opinion is the hand held unit, or steering wheel as I call it, is a little bulky and heavy if you're used to the Sport Dog models as I am. But that's a small price to pay for the other features. I would recommend it.

This collar is perfect for my needs. I allow my dogs to roam at our ranch in the Texas hill country, so I have trained my dogs to come to me when I use the tone. The vibrate mode gets their attention for when they do something wrong and they go to their beds. I also use the vibrate as a second measure if they are chasing an animal and the tone isn't working for recall. I have a 99% recall with the setter using the tone. The lab is still a puppy so we are still working on him. The stimulation will get the labs attention, although I only use the stimulation in certain situations; for example, if he goes after a skunk.... I gave this remote 4 stars because I think improvement is always necessary. Two examples for me; (I hope garmin is reading) a button that works for all collars instantaneously that can be set to any of the three modes you would need. (Tone, vibe, or stimulate) also if they could create a way that each collar would have a stimulate adjustment. For example my lab is crazy tough, if I have stimulation set to 4 he doesn't feel it. The Irish setter jumps out of her skin at 4. So when I need stimulation for one particular dog in an emergency situation, I don't have time to switch the dial to a number good for that particular dog. I'm sure I could think of more things they could improve on but for me those two issues are minor. The more time I have with the remote the quicker I'll become at those last minute on the fly changes needed to recall my favorite kids. One more thing, the remote lights is genius, super bright and it's perfect to see my dogs on a night with no moon. I hope this review helps someone. This collar isn't perfect but it is the exact thing I needed for two dogs that I allow to roam off leash. I like to view my dogs as a family member. (They really are my favorite kids) so if a dog is a chore running out the front door, not coming in when called, jumping on you and guests all the time, they become more of a burden to me and not necessarily a family member. Our families life doesn't have time for a dog that needs to be on a leash at all times. We live outdoors and want our dogs to enjoy the outdoors as dogs should.

The electronics themselves work great and I am very happy with the purchase overall, but the collar that holds the device on my dog's neck uses a traditional buckle which can be difficult to put on when he is excited.

Minor complaint though. Overall very happy.

This is my first training collar and I'm so glad I bought it. It works great on my Brittany, I am able to take her out off lead, she will look for birds, but come in or change directions when I ask her too. I keep it on a very low setting and many times she will respond to just the vibration setting. It's worked so well for her that I purchased another collar for my crazy Boxer. Not only is this system great for taking your dog off lead, but also works well for teaching dogs not to jump on people ect.

I've been using this collar on my dogs for about a week, but so far I love it. Easy to use and very (very!) effective. My dogs respond to level 4. They are completely oblivious to levels lower than 4, and actually didn't respond at first until level 5. Once they realized what was going on, I was able to reduce the level to 4 and still get consistent responses. I've been able to walk one of them on leash (who is dog-on-dog aggressive) without fear that he will go Cujo on another animal who passes by. He gets a reminder stimulation and stops all antics. It's amazing. My other dog is getting reminders that he does not need to eat every pile of dog poop he locates (which he does indeed hunt for like a pig hunts truffles). I know these are not standard reasons to use the collars, but wow.....they work, and what a relief! My dogs are only 1 year old, but I hope to be able to run them off leash soon, and will also use these collars as a deterrent against their prey drive when off leash (deer-squirrel-furry creature chasers). Definitely recommended! Thank you!

This has been an excellent tool. Our young stray (dumped near us - thanks lazy people) Cur needed to learn to not chase the donkeys and horses in the fields. Yelling didn't work. Either this device worked or the dog had to go. After only a few corrections we still have the dog! It worked as advertised. Now I have to see if I am smart enough to continue the training!!

Have been using the collar for about a month now. It is used on the dog every day in the water, snow, woods, etc. Keeps a charge for a long time, no problems so far. I would highly recommend this collar if you want something simple to operate.

Good product so far. Very well designed (ergonomically) for easy use without having to take your eye off your dog. Easy to charge and use. Like the positive clicks between settings and only having 10 settings, instead of having to guess where you are on a scale of 100 or whatever. Also has separate buttons for momentary or continuous correction, and you can hit either one without moving your thumb: use the joint for one, and the end of your thumb for the other. Has tone/vibrate/bark features as well. Haven't been able to test waterproof feature yet, but there's no charging port to leak water on the collar unit. We're using to reinforce known commands on a 130 pound dog who'd decided he didn't have to listen any more, and after 5 minutes in the back yard on the lowest setting, he's once again a model dog. Highly recommend. Wish we'd purchased sooner, Gun Dog Supply is great to deal with, with Amazon equivalent pricing.

We had been using the Tri Tronics collars for the last 9 years without issue. This new version from Garmin has a few more bells and whistles as well as being is a bit more lightweight. So far no issues. We like the separate button for toning the dogs, which we use frequently. The collar lights are a nice touch. Other than making sure we know how to use them, we have not needed them. Hoping the new collars last as long as the first set. We will see.

A great product which, with the accompanying DVD, dispelled my wife's and my own collective fears of something that would administer a truly shocking if not brutal punishment for not being obedient. Used gently but firmly, it gets immediate results, especially with our congenitally deaf pup. I can recommend this product 100% as well as Gun Dog Supply. Our problem with the charger was resolved with a new unit immediately shipped to us without the need to make a second credit card charge, in which credit is normally applied upon receipt of the old unit. Can you beat that? NO!!!!

This collar has been amazing. With it I was able to correct my dog's bad habits with remarkable ease. Friends that knew my dog when we first got him are shocked by how obedient he is now. I strongly encourage users to watch the Basic Obedience Ecollar Training video before using it. FYI, I rarely use the shock function. 99% of the correction has come from the tone and vibrate functions. This collar is very easy to use even for a complete novice. Very water proof. It has survived many many pond swims. It holds a charge very well, and it seems well built. I would absolutely recommend this collar to anyone looking for an ecollar.

My Brittany is still a puppy. She is 0.+-24.5 months old. I haven't had the opportunity to use the collar out in the field yet, but we are using it indoors to help with jumping, biting and when she won't leave the older dog alone. Really enjoyed the video. I didn't want to hurt the dog, and the instruction on the video has some good advice. Results are pretty good. She is responding to our verbal commands with the correction included. Should be using it in the field in the next month or so. Thanks for the quick ship and advise. The video you have posted on the website is great, as the instruction book included with the collar is limited.

Really nice collar. I switched over from a Dogtra that was just old. Cons: I thought the light was a great idea (our black dog becomes invisible when you let him out at night), however it isn't as effective as I was hoping. When you put on the collar, the fur under his neck blocks the light when his head is up (he has lab length fur). When he has his head to the ground sniffing you can see it. I still make him wear one of the blinking collar lights when he goes out. Garmin- move the lights to the front of the collar- not the top. Would be perfect then. Pros: Having the option for tone, vib then stim has made a great improvement in his response. The controller seems very durable (I wish it had a belt-clip). Range has been everything I'll need working around 15 acre property. Great product and looking for many years of use!

This is not my first collar but it is my first Garmin Tri Tronics brand collar. After using it for a couple of months I have found that it is reliable and delivers everything as promised. The LED lights are handy and the range of stimulation is excellent. Stimulation ranges from nothing to, why did I try that on myself. The only thing that bothers me is that the green LED flashes once in awhile when the unit is on and no stimulation is applied, not an issue during training for the most part (although I have worried that it was providing unwanted stimulation which after testing on myself it does not) in an early morning hunting situation though it could potentially flare your quarry if the collar is on at that time. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

Perfect collar for upland or other hunting. The non-digital dial is ideal versus the read out version. If you are looking for a base model with all the features that basic hunting and training will require, this is the one to get. The tone and vibration buttons are easy to use and very handy, which means I very rarely use the stimulation as my dogs are conditioned to the tone and vibration.

It was hard to pick from so many products, but Garmin was a name that carried a reputation for quality, and they had purchased a very known and respected company in Tri Tronics, so narrowed it down for me. After reading the reviews on Gun Dog Supply I chose the Sport Pro for 3 main reasons: 1) no LED window, but a very positive and easy to use dial. Who's going to be able to look down at an LED when training the dog, and it's just some else to drain the battery and/or go wrong. 2) The light feature. At night the dog looks like he's running headlights, so he sees where he's going and I see where he is. 3) The 3/4 mile rating. My GSP runs fast and long. Glad to have the ability to make corrections when he's far away. The unit costs a tad more than I wanted to spend, but I was reminded of that old saying: Good equipment ain’t cheap, and cheap equipment ain’t good. So I made the best decision!

The Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport PRO is everything you could ever need or ask from an E-collar. It has every option you could think of all with the capability of one handed, no look operation. I love the fact that each feature has its own button and the intensity has a dial instead of two extra buttons and an lcd screen I have to constantly look at. The pt10 collar it come with is the same collar as the top of the line garmin collars at the price of an entry level. The LED beacon lights have came in handy too many times to count in tracking and locating. I would highly recommend this product.

This collar is amazing. My husband and I struggled with our dog Dexter because he is very smart, and also very stubborn. There were moments where he would refuse to do a command even though we _knew_ with 100% certainty that he knew what we were asking him to do. He just chose not to. We were at a complete loss. I asked for the collar for our anniversary gift. Best gift ever. We watched the training DVD and Dex picked up everything immediately. It is everything we wanted and needed. Dex is happier now, and gets far more exercise now than he ever could before. We are happier, because we now have a dog that minds. We continue to train with him 2x/day including several opportunities throughout the day while we are home. This is something that will forever be integrated into our daily routine. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
