When you're shopping for dog training collars, you need to keep in mind not every make and model offer the same features. So what features do you need? This article is your short guide when you shop for dog training collars.
Varying ranges - decide if you need short, medium, or long range
The standard options for transmission range are short, medium, and long distance. Short if you're letting your dog roam the yard, medium if you're taking your dog out on the park, and long if you'll be bringing your hunting dogs to the hunting grounds or working dogs out on the farm.
Ruggedness - the collars should survive getting soaked, the transmitter getting dropped
You may have hunting, working dogs, or merely some small toy dogs running around your backyard, but it's comforting to know the collar will still work when wet. Dogs can suddenly run back indoors, all soaked up by the rain. And there are some dogs that love to stay out in the rain. With a waterproof collar, you can still send a signal, if you've trained them well, to call them back.
Rechargeable batteries - so you don't keep buying batteries
Being waterproof and being rugged are closely related aspects that have to do with battery life. The device on the collar is better able to survive getting soaked if it did not have parts that could be removed easily. So you want collars with batteries that need not be removed, as with a child's toy. When the power indicator says battery low, just plug in the collars into any outlet and come for them later.
Docking station - dock and so something else
Although collars often come with power cords and recharging units, it's often good to have a dock. It also helps to keeps things kept in one place when recharging them. Fewer wires to see lying about, that's why. The price of course can be affected by getting such an item. Or if the power-recharge rate is not substantially increased by having a dock compared to simply connecting the collar and transmitter to power cords, then maybe you don't need this. Just in case the added features may be of use to you, you better check out other models.
Expand the collar count when needed - great for those with many dogs
The collar-transmitter package often lists how many collars are included and whether the collar count is expandable upon your purchase of more collars of the same make and model. Keep this info in mind when you decide whether to get more collars, or get more dogs. You might do what other farmers of hunters do after seeing how well certain training collars do - they buy more of it for their dogs. It may happen to you.
