Do you have a Tri-Tronics Upland G3 collar with beeper? Don’t you love it? The ability to turn the beeper on and off remotely to locate your dog as he streaks across the next canyon is a godsend. But maybe you’ve been as hair-pullingly frustrated as I have getting the dang thing to work right.
What I mean is, you gotta turn the beeper on manually, then before putting the collar on the dog, turn it off again with the handheld remote. And believe me, it’s been a real battle here.
