Top Customer Reviews
A very nice feature, if you have a big running dog on tight grounds, is the ability to define an area and be notified if the dog goes outside the defined area. This is mostly applicable in training though it could be used while hunting.
If you frequently hunt with others, the ability to track a fellow hunter and their dogs is very nice.
If you own a big running dog, that is off lead – you need a GPS collar!
In reference to other critical reviews –
A review was critical on not being able to quickly switch the levels of stimulation. You can define what stimulation is given with each of the three buttons at the top of the unit. For me, the first button would be the minimum amount of stimulation needed to correct the dog using a “nick”. The second level may be something like the first level but continuous. The third button would involve high stimulation (for deer chasing; if the dog is heading for a road; etc.). I really do not need more buttons for different levels of stimulation working with a dog during training, or a trained dog. If you need more than three types/levels of stimulation you may have a problem
The user interface could be better, but I didn’t find it extremely difficult to work with – unless I had to do something out of the ordinary.
I can’t comment on the issue that you must lock the screen to prevent inadvertent commands or screen changes. I’ve only used the unit while walking and it worked OK on relatively flat and level ground. The true test would be when I’m training off an ATV, 4-wheeler, or horseback.
As far as the control unit on the dog being huge, I didn’t have a problem using it with multiple collars on my dog. But I used it on a Pointer (with shorthair) and did not practice retrieving. So my circumstances were different than the other reviewer.
The antennae got scratched/nicked immediately from running my dog in an area with briar. My dog is extremely fast, and determined, but the antennae sheathing should not have been damaged immediately. Though the antennae may not be as flexible, I believe that using extruded Teflon sheathing would eliminate this problem.
A bit verbose -
The instruction manuals are quite amateurish and probably written by someone already familiar with the product as steps/information is left out. The proper way to test an instruction manual is to give it to people “off the street” and see what they do based on the instructions. Then refine the instructions and try again. You will never get instructions that everyone can follow, as people think and interpret information differently. But you can do a much better job than Garmin did.
1. The TT15 collar is a little too big to fit small dogs like feist and small beagles. I solved this by buying Garmin's small dog collar, which lacks the metal loop. With that collar, my TT15 will now fit my feist... barely. Snug fit is essential when using the training function. Garmin could tweak the design and solve this problem.
2. The touch is screen is VERY sensitive; noticeably more so than my i-phones. This means you'll end up having to lock/unlock the screen constantly in order to prevent all kinds of inadvertent menu commands in your pocket. Constantly locking & unlocking is a pain.
3. The training (shock) functions aren't as user friendly as the old Tritronics units (Classic, Trashbreaker, etc). I find myself doing a lot of fumbling and going through menus which really delays the correction. As experienced training collar users know, corrections must be almost instant to be effective. 5 or 6 seconds after the behavior is no good!! Again, Garmin could tweak the design and make the training functions on the handheld more fast and intuitive - similar to the old Tritronics.
4. Don't use the belt clip unless you want to lose your handheld! It WILL come off. Pocket or lanyard is much more secure.
Those are the only negatives I have after a month of using this unit, 3 days a week. Overall, GREAT product, and well worth the high price. If Garmin would make a few minor tweaks, it would be perfect!
