I finally made the plunge and ordered a new Alpha 100 with 2 TT-15 collars and plan to get two more collars in December. Nothing wrong with the Astro 220 & DC-40 collars but looking forward to the new technology. And only carrying one remote!!! banana2

Ha, I'm right behind you thanks to pharmvet's post.

How big are your dogs. My is just under 45lbs. I was thinking about the mini. You lose quite a bit of function for 4 or 5ozs.

my dogs are from 40 - 55 lbs. Mine have been handling DC-40's mounted to my e collars (all on same collar) for years so this will be like having nothing on, to mine.

At 40 pounds are above, I would go with the regular size. Under 40, go with the mini (from my experience)

Second that. Longer battery life, better range on the larger collar. I have some minis I bought for puppies. My 45 lb. pointer now runs with a larger collar.

But it's kinda pricey.

Would also like to know about the holster have had the Alpha for some years now, do not trust the clip that come with it. The Alpha does give you piece of mind when a dog is out of sight, and if your hunting partner has one can track them also.
