Electronic Dog Training Collar Reviews
More than 30 years ago, electronic collars made their way into the dog-training scene. However, because the first generation of electronic collars were only capable of delivering one level of stimulation to the dog, they where appropriately nicknamed “shock collars”. These collars required the trainer to select the level of correction by inserting an “intensity plug” into the collar (before putting the collar on the dog for training, once the collar was on the dog they could not change the intensity level). This plug would then cause the collar to emit the same level of stimulation for all corrections issued during the session, regardless of how small or large the infraction – hence the nickname “shock collar”.

Electronic Hearing Protection Reviews
The “electronic age” has changed hearing protection for the sportsmen. Technology has not only increased the effectiveness, but it has also made improvements to comfort, size, and amplification. Shooters can now wear units that comfortably fit within the ear canal offering ultimate implications and protection. This guide will walk you through electronic hearing protection jargon, explain the technologies and give insight to the best possible solution for electronic hearing protection. Quality units are available for about $100.00, but if budget is not a concern, advanced protection can be purchased for over $1000.00. (Continue)

Force Fetch
Force Fetching Retrievers is difficult, especially when you lack experience. When a dog does not respond, do you need to apply more pressure, less pressure, ease up on requirements, shorten the session, or perhaps bear down and keep trying until he gets it? Even experienced trainers can find it hard to read a dog that is doing nothing. (Continue)

Sport Dog SD-400 Reviews
If you're looking for an economical, short range electronic dog collar to do basic obedience and yard work, then the 400 or 400S might be the system for you. For under $175 you get a lot of bang for your buck. The SD400 and SD400S have many features which rival that of the more expensive collars. For example, both collars offer continuous and momentary stimulation, as well as tone. SportDOG currently offers a Two Year Warranty on parts and labor.(Continue)
