What do you bird dog owners think of E-collars? I am looking for one with a beeper collar. I have a limited budget so any suggestions would be great.

I use Tri Tronics on both of my Drahthaars. I also use the TT accesory beeper on the collars.
They work well in locating the dog as well as controling if needed.

They don't go afield without.

I just saw a thing on TV..they now have a collar that has a cell phone built in with GPS capabilities. On your phone you can get co-ordinates on your dogs location and you can listen to him bark. This is mainly for bear & coon hounds of course.

I agree with bloodtrails. The most important thing is to teach the command first and only use the ecollar to enforce a command the dog clearly understands. Perfection Kennels has two great videos called The Perfect Start and The Perfect Finish. It's a simple method that works really well. The link is http://www.perfectionkennels.com/. I use a collar from DT Systems and it seems most of the Pros like Dogtra Collars. Before I used the collar I was worried I would be hurting the dog but I have found the ecollar is really harmless. My pointer goes nuts when I take the collar out of the box because he knows were going hunting. A good web site to buy one is http://www.gundogsupply.com/dogtrainsupe.html . Good Luck.
