Garmin Sport PRO™
Remote-controlled anti-bark collar and dog training system
Our take on the Garmin Sport PRO™ by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
The intuitive four-button remote lets you correct your dog from up to 3/4-mile away.
Everything you need to train your dog by remote control
Shelters are full of dogs who were surrendered by their owners due to behavioral issues. The Garmin Sport PRO can help nip those problems in the bud.
Correct your fuzzy friend's problematic actions with one of three attention-getting modes: audible tone, vibration, or static stimulation. There's even a built-in BarkLimiter that detects noises forming in your dog's vocal chords, and lets him know not to continue.
What's up with static stimulation?
Many of us — me included — aren't totally comfortable with the idea of using electrical correction on our beloved pets. As such, I decided to try these devices on myself before I wrote about them. The Delta Sport PRO has 10 levels of stimulation, which you can set to be momentary, or last as long as you hold down the remote button.
The lowest setting is a light tingle — kind of a mild wake-up call. The higher levels felt more like the times I'd bashed the funny bone in my elbow a little too hard. It wasn't a pleasant sensation, but I didn't find it really painful, either.
My final take is: If your dog is stubborn and gets himself into dangerous situations like running toward the road or showing aggression when he shouldn't, static correction is a safe and effective way to deter him from those detrimental behaviors and keep him by your side.
