The biggest change for our customers and most of the professional dog training world was the discontinuation of the Tri-Tronics G3 EXP series. This past May, Garmin introduced the new PRO Series with 3 models replacing the 8 Tri-Tronics Field and Pro G3 models. We were happy to see the tried and true transmitter configuration remained the same for easy no look operation.
Collar Clinic stocked up on G3 collar replacements if you should need to keep your system going. We also have replacement G3 batteries. You also have the option of trading in your old collars towards the new PRO Series.
Dogtra has been advertising the new functionally sleek collar. This was seen in Pointing Dog Journal but we do not have any specifics yet. It looks like the transmitter design has not changed but the collar sure does look sleek. ARC=Advanced Receiver Concept.
SportDOG is advertising their new GPS TEK 2.0 with topo maps. We are expecting this to be available in September 2014. This model has been approved for use in all of North America. We know our Canadian customers are looking forward to this. The new TEK 2.0 will be available with a locate and train collar or just tracking.
E-collar Technologies is introducing their new Easy Educator and Pro Educator this September. K-9 handlers have testing the Pro Educator and we are excited for this addition to their line.
D.T. Systems has a newer grip design in the R.A.P.T. 1400 which offers a programmable button for Rapid Access training or correction.
Many of these new systems have floating transmitters and are expandable for adding collars.
