E-collars which are also known as remote collars are operated remotely with a handheld controller. While many people consider e-collars nothing more than a shock collar used to correct bad pet behavior, e-collars have greater uses beyond behavior correction. Location tracking is one of those uses. Over the next few weeks we'll be doing a short article series on e-collars.
Two new puppies joined the Lion Country Supply team this week so we thought it might be appropriate to offer some Christmas gift recommendations for the new bird dog owner and hunter. Bird dog training requires some equipment investment, and although much of this equipment is considered essential by today's gun dog training standards, it's Continue reading?
Hi, I'm Eric with Lion Country Supply. I'm here today to introduce you to the all-new Garmin Alpha TT15 Mini bundle and the Garmin Alpha TT15 extra collar. Customers tell us all the time here at Lion Country Supply that the existing TT15 is a little large and heavy for smaller breeds. Well Garmin has solved that problem with the TT15 Mini.
The new T5 mini has a smaller physical size as you can see compared to the original T5. The collar strap can fit down to a 9.5 inch neck. It has a lighter weight at 7 ounces. compared to 9 ounces with the original T5 collar. It also has a sleep mode, which allows you to shut the collar on and off from the hand held, allowing you to conserve battery life. You can also turn the beacon lights on and off from the hand held.
Introducing the new Garmin Sport PRO E-Collar System. Today I am here to talk to you about an exciting new e-collar from Garmin Tri-Tronics, and that is the Garmin Sport PRO E-collar.

Lion Country Supply Says: You know you're a REAL Dog Person IF: You have the latest model of almost every brand of E-collar made.

The Garmin T5 Competition GPS collars are the first GPS tracking collar approved for use in field trials and night hunt competitions. These collars will work with both the Alpha or Astro handheld devices. This has been a concern for a lot of guys that are hunting with groups. This system Continue reading?
Garmin had sent prototype first run samples of the new PRO models to select dealers a few weeks ago. I have had a chance to tryout the new PRO550. I currently use a Tri-Tronics Pro500 to train my 4 year old Lab Billey for AKC hunt tests. The 2 systems are very similar in operation Continue reading?
I was lucky to get a chance to field test the new Garmin Tri-Tronics PRO 70 on a few of my beagles. I was very impressed with the feel of the transmitter which is very simple to the G3 Classic I have used for years. The toggle switch which changes the button setup has the collar colors shown opposed to a circle and a dot, which in my opinion is easier to tell what collars you are transmitting to. The PRO 70 also comes with a bark limiter, this alone is one feature that I have always wished someone added onto one of the training systems.
