i've been considering the use of an e-collar. we've open country and this e. Pointer can really cover some ground.
my first choice is: the SportDog 1225. it is 3/4mile and It comes out of the box set up in MODE-1 (an 8-level continuous + 8-level momentary stimulation one dog collar with a separate tone button), but it can easily be changed into 7 different modes with different button configurations. http://www.gundogsupply.com/sportdog-1225-sport-hunter-1-dog.html
could someone give me a good or bad review of the Sportdog or even this model?
i've looked at some longer ranging e-collars in the same price range but they don't allow one to add collars. here is a Sportdog model w/ 1.5 mile range. http://www.lcsupply.com/SportDog-ProHunter-2400-Collar/productinfo/PH2400/
i've also looked at the bestseller with only 1/2 mile range. this allows more collars to be added. Tritronics basic G3. but i'd like more than 0.5 mile range. http://www.gundogsupply.com/tri-tronics-g3-sport-basic.html
looking for reviews of people who have used these collars personally. mostly, do they break down? do people have to send them back for repair?
