The best opinion I ever heard on e-collars came from an old trainer in South Dakota. He worked big-ranging pointers that roamed the wide-open uplands for pheasants and sharptails, and he made retrieving machines out of labs that earned their kibble snagging downed ducks in the prairie pothole country. “An e-collar is like a long arm,” he said. “It puts you in control, but use it like you would your hand.”
Looking for your own long arm of control can be a daunting task. So here’s a review of eight top electronic collar systems from four leading manufacturers. Take a look, consider your options, and get ready to extend your reach.
