I know that GPS collars are super cool, and I want one
I really like the beeper collar because there's a lot of heavy cover here in the midwest where one can easily lose (misplace) a dog on point.
Yes beeper or no? Why
Beeper without GPS, foolish or fesible(sp)?
Can you use a beeper, GPS, or e-collar in AKC field trials or hunt tests?
And just for fun: Either post a pic of your dog's neck in competition/hunt or tell me what their neck toys are while running or hunting
Have a great weekend!
I have an old TriTronics that is now on its 3rd dog. I like the standard batteries it uses - 2 9V in the transmitter, and 2 3V in the collar - Simplicity.
Being in the Midwest myself, I have had mixed thoughts on determining point/location. I used to use a bell (ok, a little old fashioned, right?), but it seemed to work until the birds were running - then I had my doubts (that it spooked the birds more). I don't have the $$ for a combined collar, but have been pointed in the direction of a beeper attachment for the 1" band collar (to put both on) by a guide where I hunt. Here is a pic of her (best of her collar, in black) in training:
