    Wally-world can hook you up...$80 out the door. I would also suggest leash training inside and outside first to get him under voice control. The shock collar in my opinion should only be used once the dog learns what is expected of it.

    What breed of hunting dog are you training? I dont think I would have been able to train the two beagles I have now with out one. They are called shock collars , but I rarely ever have to use that feature. Just the tone button, and the range of the transmitter is important, the ones I use now have a range of 1/2 mile. There are some costly units on the market, and I guess you pay for what you get, but you can get by with lower cost units just as well. Ive never trained a lab, but I wouldnt think you would need the distance as much.......You get a young beagle running a deer, thats when the range comes in, and also so the shock feature. Its nice to have a pair of beagles that are trained to a whistle, and does everything you would want them to.

    i have a brittany spaniel puppy, about 4 months old now. i've been working with her quite a bit in the house and she has improved quite a lot. but outside when she gets excited she also gets rather stubborn.

    Everybody has their own opinions, but if you are planning to use it much and you can afford one, I suggest a Tri-Tronics, I just don't know where there are any cheap ones. I've seen and used just about every make and model, and Tri-Tronics are, by far, the most reliable, and customer service oriented collar on the market. With the cheaper ones, you have to consider battery life and replacement, as well as functionality, and in some cases repairability. I seen a Dogtra brand stick on, shocking the dog constantly. We found him 7 hours later and 3 miles away, still shaking along side the road.

    I raise brittanys, I currently have nine total. I have a Tri-Tronics upland special with beeper in great condition for $300. It is a single dog unit. New batteries in transmitter and collar. I upgraded to the Tri-Tronics Pro 500 EXP series, so I could run more than one dog at a time. Let me know if your interested.
