If your pup is stubborn, training collars can be an effective tool in helping manage their behavior. But make sure you pick the correct collar for your pup’s individual needs.
It should be simple to put on and take off, as well as comfortable for your dog. Furthermore, the collar should deliver just enough stimulation without injuring them.
SportDOG WetlandHunter 425X
SportDOG WetlandHunter 425X is a training collar with 21 levels of stimulation to help control stubborn dogs. With an effective range of 500 yards and compatibility for neck sizes 5-22 inches, this product is waterproof up to 25 feet deep and powered by batteries that last 50-70 hours.
This e-collar is ideal for hunters with close-working dogs. It boasts the latest sport dog training technology and comes beautifully finished in Realtree Max-5 camouflage pattern.
The 425X provides you with instantaneous control of stimulation, vibration and tone to tailor correction or communication to your dog’s temperament and learning ability. It makes an ideal choice for waterfowl hunting due to its waterproof construction that stands up well in the field.
It also uses two-hour quick charge lithium-ion batteries, so you never have to worry about running out of power while hunting. This makes it an ideal option for hunters with smaller dogs or younger pups.
Educator By E-Collar Technologies
The Educator by E-Collar Technologies is a remote training collar designed to make even stubborn dogs smart. Made in the US, this device features a backlit blue LCD display with all essential information at its fingertips.
The remote transmitter is designed with a circular shape, similar to that of a stopwatch, making it easier for one-handed operation. Plus, it comes equipped with a night tracking light so you can find your pup even in low light conditions.
Educator collars utilize medical-grade Blunt (Wide) Pulse stimulation that is more humane and safer than Sharp Pulse used by many other brands. It’s similar to a TENS machine used by chiropractors and physical therapists for rehabilitation treatments.
The stimulation levels on Educator collars range from 1 to 100 with boosters available for stubborn dogs. All models feature patented COS technology which lets you fine-tune the level according to your dog’s temperament. Plus, it has a “Lock & Set” feature which locks both Working and Booster settings directly onto the stimulation button so they are never accidentally altered during training sessions.
The SportHunter 825X is the smallest collar of the SportHunter family, yet offers up to 1/2 mile range for up to 3 dogs (with Add-A-Dog(r) collars). It uses tone, vibration or one of 21 levels of static stimulation as a way of communicating with your pup.
It can be used without needing to look at it, requiring only a slight movement of the dial and push of a button to deliver stimulation. This customizable nature ensures your training sessions are immediate, efficient, and tailored to your dog’s individual personality.
Another feature that sets the SportHunter 825X apart from its competition is its DryTek technology, making it waterproof and submersible up to 25 feet. This can be especially helpful when hunting in harsh conditions like rain, snow, wind or mud.
The remote also boasts an easy-to-read OLED screen that displays the selected dog, static stimulation level, mode and battery status at a glance. This makes controlling multiple dogs in the field much simpler with the SportTrainer add-a-dog collar receiver included.
The Halo 2+ provides an all-inclusive solution for pet safety. Created by renowned dog trainer Cesar Millan, this cutting-edge device allows you to erect fences in your garden and home – even out on the beach!
This smart collar is built to last, with robust material that’s resistant to chewing and rough terrain. Plus, it’s fully waterproof so you can use it indoors or outdoors.
This device also boasts improved GPS tracking, allowing you to pinpoint your dog’s location within three feet. The system communicates with satellites every 15 seconds, giving both of you a dependable real-time view of their movements.
The Halo system includes a free training program to help your dog become comfortable wearing the collar and understand their boundaries. This 21-day process will reduce stress for your pup while also avoiding false alarms. Furthermore, there are various subscription plans available; some offering premium features like advanced activity tracking or Cesar Millan training content.
