I like the low stim continues butterfly flutter of the Tritronics rather than the zzzzzzzzzzzz of the Dogtra Ive never compaired the speed I suspect there both faster than me.I have dropped my dogtra a couple times in the grass while training.
In grass of any length they are not super easy to find. It also has fallen in the crack of the car seat/console...have luckily always found it. Have dropped in on the pavement before too, luckily did not break.
I cannot remember if it was Thomas or Mike Scheiber that is big on tri-tronics, but someone was saying how the delivery method of the stim is faster and better with the tri-tronics. I have been ok with the dogtra though...
one of the funniest things I ever saw, concerning an e collar was a girl training a DS, the dog was not outing. she was yelling LOS...and was hitting the button, over and over, her BF was getting chewed up in the suit in a bad spot...dog was not outing.
The funny part was the collar was not on the dog, it was in her hand with the transmitter... would have been funnier if it was on and she shocked herself....I doubt that could happen with the tri-tronics....
Tritronics is second nature to me I understand it as dose my dog.
My dog sees me grabbing my collar and here's the jingle of his pinch and hes stoked and knows its time for fun and work obedience, bite work or tracking no matter.
