Best 2 collar system for two dogs in your opinion?

Was thinking about this one. https://petspy.com/collections/frontpage/products/petspy-m686-remote-dog-trainer

If there is a better one for the money, please tell me.

I can almost guarantee you that for $70 that collar is going to suck...

Inconsistent stim, battery life and durability will all most likely be issues...

I personally do not have any first had experience with it...so take my opinion with that in mind.

I have the Dogtra 1900s and I really like it.

I have heard good things about Sport Dog recently as well. I used to hear a lot of negative reviews but a friend of mine switched and is really liking them.

^^^ Agreed

Sport Dog and Gamin / TriTronics will last. I know Dogtra has been around a while, I just don't have any personal experience with them.

In this deal you get what you pay for.

I recommend Sportdog.

I have used a Sportdog 425 camo for 5 years(upland and waterfowl) with no problems. The size is excellent. It is very small, lightweight, and waterproof. I have another friend I hunt with that has the same collar. He had to replace a battery and a lost remote during 2 separate duck hunting trips. Sportdog was all over it and sent the needed gear express right to the hotel he was staying at.

I agree with the above statements. That collar you posted has a nice price tag but I'm afraid you will get what you pay for. I use a Dogtra Edge RT and I love it. In my opinion, you can not go wrong with a Dogtra or Garmin/Tri Tronics collar. It sounds like Sportdog is putting out some nice products now as well. I would stick with one of those three brands. If you try and save some money and buy a cheap no-name brand, you will just have to buy a new collar sooner than later.

Since Garmin took over Tritronics, I went with the Dogtra rt edge.
So far I like it as well as my old Tritronics.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

Stick with Garmin or Dogtra. You want a two dog collar that has constant and momentary and has a good low range and allows you to step up the power easily when a dog is unresponsive. Low range is critical--you get the best results when you can work the dog around high 1 or low 2 level . This is just an annoying level but allows you to use a lot of constant pressure with out burning the dog. Save those high, high levels for dangerous situations--like snakes and javelin.
A good 2 dog collar is going to run @ 300 or more. Dogtra's and Garmin are waterproof, have a better range and longer battery life.
They also recharge faster.

I have had two dogs on a Sport Dog 425 for almost 5 years now with zero problems.

Garmin Tri Tronics Sport Pro is solid!

Garmin Sport Pro is a great setup. Simple and easy to use while in a small pkg.

I would also throw in DT Systems in the mix for good e collars. I have used the 1820 Plus for the last 6 years on my Lab and it is still going great. SportDog probably gives you the best "deal" for the money. You just won't have the range.
