Extra Training Collars
An excellent feature of many remote training collars for dogs, is the ability to add or replace training collars within the system. This is specifically beneficial for people needing to train or keep track of multiple dogs, or people who need to replace a broken, lost, or low stimulation collar. Collars are generally system specific, but are easily paired with transmitters when the right equipment is purchased. Below is a list of systems with “add-a-dog” collars or replacement collar options.
SportDOG Add-A-Dog Receiver Collars
SportDOG offers a number of options to the trainer looking to replace or add a collar to their system. When looking for a SportDOG replacement collar be sure to check the transmitter compatibility. Some of the SportDOG receivers, or collars, like the SportDOG SD-1825 Camo Receiver Collar are compatible with any SportDOG training system when your pack expands. Others, like the SportDOG SD-425S Receiver Collar, are specifically designed to replace lower stim collars and be used with your more stubborn canines. Most collars come with the receiver unit, the collar, and a charging cord. Like the SportDOG training systems, the replacement collars offered by SportDOG come with a range of features and ranges. The specifics of your training and expected use will dictate which of the SportDOG replacement collars you should use.
PetSafe Add-A-Dog Collars
A PetSafe replacement collar is easy to add to your PetSafe training system. To choose which is right for you, consider the range you wish to allow your dog, and check the weight recommendation on each collar. A new PetSafe receiver collar comes with an effective range of 400 to 1000 yards and two sizes, “Little Dog” (8-40 lbs) and “Big Dog (40 lbs +). Most PetSafe add-a-dog collars, like the PetSafe Venture Big Dog Additional Collar even come with rechargeable batteries. When purchasing one of these replacement or add-a-dog collars, be sure that they are compatible with the PetSafe training system you own.
Garmin/Tri-Tronics Extra Dog Devices
Garmin and Tri-Tronics have taken the multi dog training system to a new level. When purchasing a Garmin replacement collar or adding collar to your system, take a look at your transmitter. Many Garmin and Tri-Tronics training systems come pre programmed with colored collar positions. The colored buttons will help you choose which color Garmin receiver collar to choose for dog two, three, four, etc. Both the Tri-Tronics G3/G2 Add-On Receiver and the Garmin PRO 70/550 Additional PT 10 Collar come with 5 color options so that you can easily coordinate training your pack. As always, double check that any collar you anticipate purchasing is compatible with your training system.
