DT Systems H2O 1850 Plus Remote Training System with Beeper
The DT Systems H20 1850 Plus is a long distance e-collar trainer and a locator beeper all in one unit, made especially for upland hunters and their pointers! The e-collar has a 1-mile range by use of the Maxx-Range antenna woven into the collar strap. The beeper horn has a 450 yd. audible range and is fixed on to the collar permanently, so there are no worries about it sliding around the collar strap to where it hurts your dog’s ears. Both the transmitter and the receiver/collar/beeper horn are 100% waterproof; the transmitter is even buoyant and floats in the water.
The transmitter fits in your hand comfortably and has easy grip coating to prevent slipping. Choose between 16 stimulation levels on the intensity dial on the transmitter, then press the upper button for nick/momentary stimulation or the lower button for continuous stimulation.
The side buttons on the transmitter allow you to set the beeper locator to Locate, Run/Point or Point Only. Locate mode only sounds the beep while you are looking for the dog, Run/Point mode beeps every 5 sec. while the dog is running and every 2 sec. while the dog is pointing, and Point-Only mode only beeps when the dog is pointing.
The collar strap with built-in antenna fits necks 14-23 in. and should not be trimmed or have additional holes added due to the antenna fibers in the strap.
Includes a basic obedience training book by renowned professional trainer George Hickox. The DT Systems H20 1850 Plus can be expanded to a two dog system by purchasing an extra collar: DT System 1850 Plus Extra Collar Green
I was never a fan of an E collar for training, basically for bad or dangerous habit breaking. This is my third collar since about 1985, all DTs and they have all served me well. My second DT is still fine, but my hearing isnt near what it used to be and a bell on a collar just wasnt getting it so I wanted to try a beeper, plus the idea of all the lower stimulation levels and training methods associated with them I thought might hold some merit. The principle sounds good, but it seems to go from no stimulation to a corrective level on my dog. 1-3 I couldnt even feel on my palm, 4-5 just barely, then at levels when I did feel it, it became corrective on the dog, she would go from no reaction at all to a yip and jump. Another drawback to me is the beeper is so loud that it actually scares the dog, maybe she would get used to it? So far I have only used it as a locator and really dont think I want to subject the dogs ears to it as a hunt or point signal. Its great as a correction, and the locator is so loud it works well in heavy cover, but the biggest drawback to me is the stimulation buttons should be shielded a little better, it doesnt take much to activate them so I find myself turning the stimulation all the way down, just in case. Well built and to me a good value, Ive only used it enough to drain the battery once so far, 6-7 hours run time which I am happy with, but would recommend it for anybody looking for a correction collar with a beeper. Great service from LCS too!
