Dog Collar Device Setup
Methods to Add a Dog Collar Device to a
Handheld Device
If you purchased the dog collar device and the handheld device
separately, you must add the dog collar device to the handheld
device.‍ You can add up to 20 dog collar devices to one
handheld device.‍
Using MURS/VHF: Allows you to add a dog collar device after
you have placed the dog collar device into pairing mode by
pressing the power key.‍
This method is helpful when you are adding a new accessory
collar to the system prior to leaving for the hunt (Adding a
Dog Over MURS/VHF).‍
Entering the track and train codes: Allows you to add a dog
collar device that you do not own and that is not in the area.‍
The dog's owner must determine if you can only track the
dog or can track and train the dog.‍ This method requires the
dog's owner to find and communicate the codes to the
person adding the dog collar device.‍
This method is helpful when you would like to add a dog
collar device during a hunt, but you are not near the dog.‍ For
example, you are adding another member of your hunting
party's dog collar device to your handheld device, but you do
not own the dog collar device (Adding a Dog Using the Track
and Train Codes).‍
NOTE: This feature varies based on dog collar device type
and feature availability in your area.‍ You may see track
codes only or track and train codes.‍
Sharing wirelessly using ANT‍+™ wireless technology:
Allows you to add a dog collar device that you do not own

if you can only track the dog or can track and train the dog.‍
This method does not require the dog's owner to find and
communicate the codes to the person adding the dog collar
device.‍ This method also adds dog information, such as the
dog's name, communication settings, and initial position,
from the sending handheld device to your device.‍ The two
handheld devices must be within range 3 m (10 ft.‍) to share
data wirelessly.‍
This method is helpful when you want to add a dog collar
device during a hunt, but you are not near the dog.‍ For
example, the dogs have already been let loose, and you are
near the dog owner, who can share the dog wirelessly
(Sharing a Dog Wirelessly).‍
VHF Radio Information
This product may be used only on specific radio frequencies,
which vary depending on the country of use.‍ See the product
packaging or go to www.garmin.com/‍tracking​-legal for details
about the radio frequency of this product.‍

Dog Training
You should research and investigate the training methods best
suited for you, your dog, and your needs.‍ This manual provides
some basic guidelines for training, but each dog has unique
training needs.‍
When used properly, the Alpha training system is a very
effective training tool to aid your dog in reaching its full potential.‍
The use of the training system should be part of an overall
training program.‍
Begin training your dog on a leash, without the Alpha training
system.‍ You should train your dog how to heel, sit, and come to
you.‍ After the dog understands these three basic commands,
you can begin training with the dog collar device and the leash.‍
Finally, when the dog consistently obeys commands using the
leash and collar, you may be able to remove the leash to train
with only the dog collar device.‍
Selecting and Installing the Contact Points
For best results, select the correct contact points based on your
dog's coat.‍
1 Select the correct contact point length for your dog's coat
type:
• For dogs with thicker coats, use the longer contact points.‍
• For dogs with shorter coats, use the shorter contact
points.‍
2 If necessary, use the included wrench to remove the contact
points.‍
3 Twist the contact points into the collar.‍
4 Tighten with the included wrench, but do not overtighten.‍
6
When you put the collar on the dog, make sure the contact
points are tight against the neck.‍
Removing the Contact Points
When you are not training the dog using the training keys,
remove the contact points.‍
1 Use the included wrench to remove both contact points.‍
2 Place the cap over the contact point holes.‍
Training Methods
NOTE: Training features are not available in all areas for
tracking collars.‍
Momentary stimulation: Applies a brief stimulation when you
press the training key, regardless of how long the key is
depressed.‍
Continuous stimulation: Applies stimulation to the dog the
entire time you press the training key, for a maximum of 8
seconds.‍ Your stimulations should typically be much shorter
than 8 seconds.‍
Tone: Activates an audible tone instead of stimulation.‍ A tone
can be used as either a positive or negative training cue,
depending on your training program.‍
Vibration: Applies vibration instead of stimulation to the dog the
entire time you press the training key, for a maximum of 8
seconds.‍ The effectiveness of vibration may vary based on
the dog's temperament and experience.‍
Linear and Traditional Stimulation
You can use linear or traditional stimulation to customize your
training experience.‍ The default intensity method is linear, which
allows progressive stimulation from level 1 to level 18.‍
Traditional stimulation allows you to make quick changes using
low, medium, and high settings within predetermined stimulation
levels (1 through 6).‍
Choosing the Correct Intensity Level
1 Set the intensity to the lowest level (Customizing the Training
Keys).‍
2 Select a training key.‍
3 Observe the dog for a reaction, such as a head shake, neck
movement, or just a change in expression.‍
Sometimes dogs will vocalize due to the surprise of the
electrical stimulation.‍ If the dog vocalizes more than once,
the intensity level is too high for beginning training.‍
4 If there is no reaction, increase the intensity level by one
level until the dog has a slight but recognizable reaction to
the stimulation.‍
The intensity level that causes a slight but recognizable reaction
is your dog's baseline level for beginning collar training.‍ You do
not need to, and should not, apply this intensity selection test
again.‍
After you begin training, the dog’s performance guides your
intensity selection.‍ As the dog advances in training, you may
need to change the level depending upon the training situation.‍
Setting Up the Training Keys for One
Intensity Level
Before you can assign the training keys to a dog, you must add
the dog to the handheld device (Adding a Dog Over MURS/
VHF).‍
By default, the training keys are set to the lowest stimulation
setting, with momentary (M), continuous (C), and tone (T) or
vibration (V) for each key.‍ This mode is most useful when
training only one dog.‍ When training multiple dogs, it may be
helpful to customize a training key for each dog and for each
intensity level (Customizing the Training Keys).‍
1 Select Setup > Training > Training Buttons.‍
Dog Training
2 Select the area at the top of the screen directly below the
keys.‍
3 Select or to choose the intensity level for each of the
stimulation keys.‍
4 If you are using traditional stimulation mode, select LOW,
MED, or HI.‍
5 Select .‍
In this mode, the left key provides momentary simulation.‍ The
center key provides continuous stimulations.‍ The right key
provides a tone or vibration.‍
Customizing the Training Keys
Before you can assign the training keys to a dog, you must add
a dog to the handheld device (Adding a Dog Over MURS/VHF).‍
You can assign a specific dog intensity level and stimulation
mode to each training key.‍ You can add multiple pages of
training key settings.‍ This mode is most useful when training
multiple dogs.‍ When training only one dog, it might be more
useful to set only the intensity level.‍
1 Select Setup > Training > Training Buttons > Change
Mode.‍
2 Select below the key you are customizing.‍
3 Select the dog you want to train with this key.‍
4 Select or to choose the intensity level.‍
5 If you are using traditional stimulation mode, select LOW,
MED, or HI.‍
6 Select momentary (M), continuous (C), tone (T), or vibration
(V).‍
7 Repeat steps 3-6 for all three keys.‍
8 If you need to train with more than three keys, select >
Insert Page, and program the additional keys.‍
9 Select .‍
Collar Training
Begin training your dog on a leash, without using the Alpha
training system.‍ After the dog shows a grasp of the commands
"heel," "sit," and "here," you can begin training with the collar
and the leash.‍
During the initial stage of collar introduction, the dog learns that
collar stimulation means the same thing as a tug on the leash.‍
At first, the dog may be alarmed by the electronic stimulation.‍
The key is to be patient and consistent and not to start off at too
high of an intensity.‍ Be fair and consistent, and use repetition
and praise when using the collar as a training tool.‍
If the dog does not respond to the stimulation level you have
selected (Choosing the Correct Intensity Level), increase the
stimulation one level at a time until you achieve the appropriate
response.‍ After you achieve the desired response, you can
lower the stimulation level as long as the dog maintains
consistency.‍
As the dog becomes more proficient with the commands, you
can begin to introduce distractions, such as rolling a ball in front
of the dog or walking him in the presence of others.‍
After the dog begins to respond consistently to the command
during collar training, you can remove the leash and train with
just the collar.‍
NOTE: You should train without a leash only when it is
appropriate for your environment and your dog's temperament.‍
You should follow all laws and regulations for your area
regarding the use of dog leashes.‍
Eventually in most training situations, your commands will not
require stimulation to be given with the command.‍ You should
only use stimulation when you need to repeat a command
because the dog did not obey the first one.‍
Contact Tracking
As the dog becomes better trained, you can decrease the use of
collar training.‍ Continue to have the dog wear the collar until
you feel certain that it is no longer needed to reinforce known
commands.‍ Abandoning the collar too early can lead to
problems in the future.‍
Contact Tracking
You can track other hunters so you know where they are at all
times.‍ You can also send messages to your contacts.‍ One
Alpha handheld device can track up to 20 devices, including TT
15 dog collar devices and Alpha handheld devices.‍
Adding a Contact Using MURS/VHF
