Goft20,

Charging new Garmin?

I just updated from TT 10's to TT15's.

My question is: will the charging devices that came with the new TT15's be ok to also charge my Alpha 100. The nomenclature on the new charging devices is a little different and Garmin is closed for the weekend.

Thanks

Re: When to switch from basic obedience to hunt training

If the dog is a fetching machine; why would you want or need to force fetch? Or maybe you don't understand the term "force fetch" It can be pretty extreme and not fun at all.

Don't forget the number one command to learn is WHOA. Once your dog will lock up solid to this command all else will follow.
