7 Great E-Collars for 2014

7 Great E-Collars for 2014

If you have ever felt helpless training a new gun dog, or even a well-conditioned field veteran, welcome to the club. Sometimes a pup with the best bloodlines money can buy will hightail it for no good reason. That can be a depleting feeling. Last year, a good friend could only watch as his young setter caught a glimpse of a doe bounding through the woods.

The dog gave chase, running across a four-lane highway, dodging traffic. My friend eventually tracked the young pup down, but a perilous situation could have been avoided with a quick correction from an e-collar, only he didn't believe in them at the time. Now he does, and with good reason. Not only can e-collars save your dog's life, but they make it easier to train and hunt because you're in control at all times.


And the collars are becoming as smart as our smart phones, recalling training settings for individual dogs, giving us the exact location of a dog on point and even correcting unwanted barking.



The technology is there; you just have to take advantage of it.
