Dogs Unlimited Introduces Three New Garmin/Tri-Tronics Electronic Dog Training Collars
Garmin/Tri tronics PRO 550
Dogs Unlimited is excited to introduce 3 new products from Garmin that are sure to light a spark in the world of hunting dog trainers and dog training enthusiasts.
The recent purchase of Tri-Tronics by Garmin has ushered in a new lineup of advanced electronic dog training collars. These three new collar designs–the PRO 550, PRO 70, and PRO Trashbreaker–are based on Tri-Tronics’ iconic Field and Pro Series systems, and use proven Tri-Tronics technology. But Garmin has added its own twist to make them an even better dog training tool than their predecessors.
A new feature that Garmin has added to this class of dog training collar is the built-in BarkLimiter, a no-bark collar built into the Dog Device collar itself. The BarkLimiter is activated by the Dog Device and features Autorise technology which automatically adjusts to the appropriate correction level to help stop unwanted barking.
Alan O. Davison, owner of Dogs Unlimited comments, “Garmin just upped the ante with its recent introduction of these three dog training collars. It’s absolutely ingenious of them to include the BarkLimiter. It’s something that our customers have been asking for. When it comes to their customers, Garmin listens.”
While similar in appearance, these electronic dog collars are actually very different in their overall functionality to the user. Below is a brief description of each collar’s features:
PRO 550 – 1 mile range, train up to 3 dogs at once, total of 21 levels of momentary and continuous corrective stimulation, vibration and tone correction, the ability to activate available accessories from the transmitter, and an LED Beacon Light on the Dog Device that can be seen up to 100 yards. PRO 70 – 1 mile range, train up to 6 dogs at once, 6 levels of continuous corrective stimulation, tone correction, and an LED Beacon Light on the Dog Device that can be seen up to 100 yards. PRO Trashbreaker – 4 mile range, train up to 9 dogs at once, 6 levels of continuous corrective stimulation, tone correction, and an LED Beacon Light on the Dog Device that can be seen up to 100 yards.
Garmin is always on the cutting edge of whatever they do, and electronic dog training collars guarantees to be no different. Proven Tri-Tronics technology and the addition of exciting new features show that Garmin is serious about taking electronic dog training collars to the next level of performance.
Bark Busters – Patrick Logue – Bark Busters’ Dog Training Methods
Though there is a general impression that reward training is the modern type of training, in reality this training method is very old. As old as ever since the dogs were there to train. Even before that people were using informal reward training methods to train wolf pups, which turned out to be modern dogs. Modern reward training gains popularity only for the past 10 to 15 years. But people were using principle of reward training for many decades. Dog trainers prefer this method to other training methods like leash and collar method. But in some cases the combination of these training methods is found to be more effective.
Training methods will vary from dog to dog. Some dogs can be easily trained by using a leash/collar method where as other dogs need a reward training method. These dogs are happy with the reward they get and listen to a trainer’s command thinking of reward. Some dogs fall between these two categories. They need the combination of both reward training as well as leash/collar training method.
Clicker training is another form of reward training. This method has become very popular among the trainers. When the dog does something good, the trainer will use a clicker to make click sound. As soon as the dog hear the click sound it knows that it will get a reward, a treat. Gradually the dog starts responding to the click sound.
Reward training is associated with food. The Dog will get reward as a food. After obeying any order from the master the dog expects food immediately. For more complex exercises this system work wonderfully. People who train the dogs for movies and television uses this reward training exclusively, which gives great results. Police and military dogs are trained by using a reward-training method. They are trained to smell and track. This is helpful in training the dog about basic behavior like obedience. Some reward training include lure in reward training method. The trainer uses the lure to get the dog in certain position according to trainers wish. Later on the dog will get in to that position whenever the dog feels like. It is a sensible thing to train the dog with out physically interfering.
Training the dog without touching is very important. Positive reinforcement is the reward dog gets after every good performance. Reward they get is a positive reinforcement. Not only food but also word like ‘good boy’ and a pat on their head will do wonders.
When training the dog for some important job like in police, detection of drugs etc. the dog need to be reliable. So these dogs need to be trained in such environments. Surrounding people and sounds should not distract the dogs. The dogs need to be social with people and other animals around. The biggest mistake the dog trainers do is to train the dogs inside the house or in the yards. There only the trainer and the dog are present. When the dog is taken out, the trainer will accompany the dog as its protector. These dogs will not be able to perform well at a situation where so many people are there in the surroundings.
Another important thing to remember is that while taking out the dog the dog should always pay attention to its trainer. The dog should be alert all the time what the trainer is doing.
This is just a little bit of information of all the information available on dog training. I hope you have learned a bit from this article though. Good luck!

The Secrets of Dog Obedience Training
Make the pups know who’s in charge
Hunting the right hound
Some of the oldest breeds of domestic dogs are the speedy sight hounds. Today the slow, prodding bloodhound is usually used by law enforcement to track renegades or missing persons.
Made up of guardians of livestock and property, police dogs, sled dogs and rescue dogs, these workers come in all shapes and sizes, from the standard schnauzer to the great dane.
Both routinely in the top five breeds, the labrador retriever and the golden retriever together account for nearly one-quarter of the more than 1 million dogs registered with the akc every year.
Very bright and rather determined breeds such as rottweilers, dobermans and akitas have become extremely popular, even trendy. The instinct to herd in some of them can be strong in these breeds even if most of these are now plain companion dogs that have never even seen a sheep. That’s part of the fun. Their individual skills, original purposes and temperaments are almost as varied as their origins.
The world’s most popular breed of dog is no breed at all. Mixed breeds, random breeds, mongrels, mutts or curs – call them what you will, they make up the majority of the worldwide dog population.
The anatomy of a canine
Like all mammals, the canid family is able to control body temperature through various physical functions. Called thermoregulation, this ability allows canids to thrive in all types of climates, from the subarctic to the sahara. Coat. Even the size of a canid’s ears plays a part in temperature control. You might as well read the information about it. Such hot-weather species as the fennec fox, a tiny african desert dweller, sports oversized ears to maximize heat loss. The arctic fox, on the other hand, has minuscule ears to minimize the effects of the frigid weather in its northern homeland.
The ears of wild canids, like wolves and foxes, come in only one shape: natural. Among the most common varieties are the erect or pricked ears sported by many of the more wolf-like breeds, such as german shepherd and basenjis, and by semi-domestic canids, such as dingoes and new guinea singing dogs. Most hound dogs feature hanging or pendant ears, while many terriers have semi-erect button ears in which the tips fold over and hang in a v-shape, partially covering the opening.
But among domestic dogs, selective breeding has produced a number of different ear types, each with its own names, courtesy of dog breeders, fanciers and kennel clubs.
