One of the most prevalent upland social media threads running is, “Which e-collar and why?”
I had the same question, did some research and made a choice. I went with the Dogtra Pathfinder Mini which is expandable up to 21 dogs, has a 4-mile range, includes an inundating number of stimulation and tracking adjustments, and a battery life that allowed me to run my dogs for several days without a recharge. The collars offer a wide range of size adjustment right out of the box, are super lightweight, low profile and come with highly visible LED locate and beacon lights.
I was a little apprehensive about using my cell phone as a controller, but Dogtra kept things simple. Changing dogs with your touch screen phone, sending commands or adjusting the GPS sending rates couldn’t be easier. I love the compass tracking screen with color specific arrows indicating the direction for each dog. (It keeps me from getting lost too.)
Beyond shotguns and dogs, upland hunters pinch pennies tighter than anyone I know. Stop asking the question and put the Dogtra Pathfinder Mini e-collar system on your wish list today — $400.
