Garmin® Introduces New Line of Dog Training Collars


OLATHE, Kan.- Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, Monday announced a new line of electronic dog training systems: the BarkLimiter series of bark reduction collars and the Delta series of training collars for dogs.

“These new electronic dog training aids are designed to help dogs learn – whether they’re elite sporting dogs or beloved members of the family,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Both the BarkLimiter and Delta series feature proven and safe electronic correction technology that has been perfected by Tri-Tronics – the leader in electronic dog training devices for more than 40 years.”

The BarkLimiter Series

There’s no denying it – all dogs bark. But problems begin when the barking becomes incessant – often times when family members are away from the home and unable to deal with the problem. Neighbors start complaining, and in extreme cases, the landlord or animal control intervenes – forcing pet owners to make difficult decisions.

The new BarkLimiter series helps put an end to the problem by giving dog owners control over nuisance barking. Featuring bark identification technology that uses innovative accelerometer technology, the BarkLimiter is able to distinguish between barking and other vocalizations. Also exclusive to the new BarkLimiter Series is Advanced Bark Correction Technology, which delivers consistent and instantaneous correction, while substantially reducing false corrections that can be caused by external noises.

Like all Garmin products, the BarkLimiter Series is simple to use, with a set-it-and-forget-it “autorise” function that automatically programs the stimulation intensity level based on the barking behavior of each individual dog. When a bark is detected, the lowest level of correction is given, and corrections will rise until the dog stops nuisance barking. After a prolonged period of quiet, the BarkLimiter will reset itself to two levels below the dog’s maximum level reached and begin rising again if barking resumes. Vibration and manual settings are also included.

For dogs that spend time alone in an apartment or back yard, the Bark Odometer™ lets dog owners know exactly how many times their dog barked while they were away. The lightweight and compact BarkLimiter series features integrated stainless steel contact points and is waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Two versions are offered: the BarkLimiter, which features a long-lasting (up to 10 months) user-replaceable battery, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe, which features a rechargeable battery that lasts The BarkLimiter has a retail price of $79.99, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe has a retail price of $99.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.

The Delta Series

For dog owners that want both a training collar and a bark collar, the Delta Sport delivers – combining two great features into one small package. The Delta Sport is a sleek, ergonomic, and simple-to-use electronic training system for dog owners who want to teach their canine companion new commands, or refocus them away from unwanted behaviors. Functioning as a “virtual leash” up to three-quarters of a mile away, the Delta Sport gives dog owners a wide range of customizable correction settings, including

tone, vibration, and 18 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation. And when not being used as a training collar, it serves double duty as a bark collar, with the same autorise feature found in the BarkLimiter Deluxe.

The Delta handheld’s easy-to-read LCD display makes it simple to switch among five different training configurations. The trainer can make immediate corrections when necessary – all based on the temperament of the dog and the specific situation at hand. The Delta handheld can control up to three collars total (sold separately) and switching between different dog collars is effortless. The lightweight and compact Delta features integrated stainless steel contact points and both the collar unit and handheld are waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – and the transmitter floats. Both the handheld and collar unit come with rechargeable batteries that last up to three months on a full charge.

For trainers who only want e-collar functions (and no BarkLimiter), Garmin offers the Delta in a basic configuration with three training configurations (instead of five) and half-mile range.

The Delta has a retail price of $199.99, and the Delta Sport has a retail price of $249.99. Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.

NEW! SPT 2400 Series and H2O 1800 Series

Jump.  Rise.  Two words that will revolutionize the dog training industry, and only available in the new SPT 2400 series and H2O 1800 series electronic dog training collars.

Both DT Dog Training collar systems feature these latest innovations:  Jump and Rise Stimulations.  When your dog is not responding to the normal intensity setting, Jump Stimulation is preprogrammed to make the collar instantly “jump” to a different intensity level when the Jump button is pressed.  Rise Stimulation will gradually increase the intensity level as long as the Rise button is being pressed.

Depending on which specific model you choose, our other features will also be available on these collar new systems as well:  Nick Stim., Continuous Stim., Positive Vibration, and Beeper/Locator.

Two new features, two new training collars:  Revolutionary ways you’ll be “Bringing Out the Best” in your best friend!

D.T. Systems Introduces Add-On Collar Feature to H2O 1800 PLUS Series Collars

D.T. Systems has improved their popular line of H20 1800 collars with a new Add-On capability in their remote transmitter.   The new system allows dog trainers to expand from a 1-dog system into a 2- or 3- dog unit simply by purchasing additional Add-On Collar units. Now instead of having to buy a whole new system when they add a dog or two to their kennel, owners simply buy an additional collar. The system then allows the trainer to control up to 3 dogs from one transmitter, except on the 1850 model which expands to 2 dogs.  In addition each new transmitter has a new textured grip texture which helps the user feel and control the transmitter even when it is wet and cold.

The D.T. Systems™ H2O 1800 PLUS series is a great collar system that covers both basic and advanced training needs for both professionals and novice users alike.  They are designed with the harshest environments in mind, whether you are knee-deep in cold icy waters or knee-deep in tall grass on a dry sunny day.

The H2O 1810 PLUS, as well as the rest of the H2O 1800 PLUS lineup, has 16 levels of Nick (momentary) and Continuous Stimulations to fine-tune the exact level for your dog or situation.

The H2O 1820 PLUS has a Vibration feature, as well as a simultaneous Vibration with 1 second delay stimulation.

The H2O 1830 PLUS has the Jump Stimulation, which lets you pre-program a different intensity level to “jump” to at the push of a button.  It also comes with Rise Stimulation, which will gradually increase the stimulation level while you hold the Rise button.

The H2O 1850 PLUS has a Beeper audible from 450 yards with three functions: Locate, Run & Point mode, and Point Only mode.

The patented MAXX-Range™ internal FM antenna embedded in the collar belt gives you 360 degrees of coverage so you can have up to a 1 mile (1800 yard) range.

Both the dog collar and transmitter are rechargeable and waterproof, and the transmitter will actually float on water.
