Dog Collar Device Setup
Methods to Add a Dog to a Handheld Device
If you purchased the collar and the handheld device separately,
you must add the collar to the handheld device.‍ You can add up
to 20 collars to one handheld device.‍
There are three different methods to add (or pair) the collar to
the handheld device: using MURS/VHF, using the track/train
code, or using ANT‍+™.‍
Adding over MURS/VHF: Allows you to pair after you have
placed the collar into paring 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.‍ See page 3.‍
Entering the track and train codes: Allows you to add a dog
that you do not own and that is not in the area.‍ The dog's
owner must determine if people 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.‍
This method is helpful when you would like to add a dog
during a hunt, but you are not near the dog.‍ For example,
you are adding another member of your hunting party's dog
to your handheld device, but you do not own the dog.‍ See page 3.‍
Sharing wirelessly over ANT‍+: Allows you to add a dog that
you do not own and that is not in the area.‍ The dog's owner
must determine if people 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.‍ 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 (10 ft.‍) to
share data wirelessly.‍
This method is helpful when you would like to add a dog
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.‍ See page 3.‍
Adding a Dog Over MURS/VHF
1 If the collar is on, turn off the collar (page 2).‍
2 Hold the Power key until the collar emits two series of
beeps, about 2 seconds, and then release the Power key.‍
The status LED begins blinking rapidly in green.‍ The collar is
now ready to be linked, or paired, with a handheld device.‍
3 On the handheld device, select Dog List > Add Dog.‍
4 Bring the collar near the handheld device, and select Yes.‍
5 Enter the name of the dog, and select > OK.‍
Adding a Dog Using the Track and Train Codes
Before you can add a dog using the track and train codes, you
must have the dog owner find the track and train codes
(page 3) and tell them to you.‍
If you are not near the dog you want to add or you cannot put
the collar into pairing mode, you can add the dog using the track
and train codes.‍
1 Select Add Dog.‍
2 When asked if you are near the collar, select No.‍
3 When asked if you know the track and train codes, select
Yes.‍
4 Enter the track or train code for the collar, and select .‍
The dog’s track code allows you to track the dog.‍ The dog’s
train code allows you to both track and train the dog.‍

2 Select a dog.‍
3 Select Remove.‍
5 If the strap is too long, cut off the excess, leaving at least 3
inches to spare.‍
Communication with the Collar
If the collar and handheld device came in the same packaging,
they were paired at the factory.‍ If you are using a collar or
handheld device that you purchased separately, add the collar
to the handheld device to establish a communication link
between the collar and handheld device (page 3).‍
The collar and handheld device must be within range to
communicate with each other.‍ The MURS/VHF radio
communication range is up to 9 miles.‍
The collar and handheld device use radio signals to
communicate.‍ Objects in the path of radio signals degrade the
quality of the signals.‍ Keeping an unobstructed line of sight
between the collar and handheld device produces the best
communication signal.‍ Obstructed radio waves result in a poor
signal.‍ To achieve the best line-of-sight conditions, move to the
highest elevation point in your area (for example, on the top of a
hill).‍

Attaching the Collar on Your Dog
CAUTION
To prevent irritation from the contact points, remove the collar
for at least 8 hours out of every 24-hour period.‍
NOTICE
Remove the charging clip before putting the collar on the dog.‍ If
you do not remove the clip, it may become detached from the
collar and become lost.‍
Before you put the collar on the dog, pair the handheld device
and collar (page 3), and acquire satellite signals (page 2).‍
1 Select an option:
• If you are training your dog with the collar, select and
install the appropriate contact points (page 6).‍
• If you are not training your dog with the collar, install the
cap over the contact point locations (page 6).‍
2 Place the collar in the middle of the dog's neck, directly
behind the dog's ears.‍
3 Position the collar with the VHF whip antenna pointing up,
the GPS antenna facing up, and the LEDs facing forward.‍
When using the contact points, they can be positioned
anywhere along the dog's neck.‍ The best location for the
contact points is in the front of the neck.‍
4 Tighten the strap so that it is snug around the dog's neck.‍

Dog Tracking
The Alpha system allows you to track your dog, up to 9 miles
away, using the dog tracking compass or map.‍ The map
displays your location and your dog's location and tracks.‍ The
pointer acts like a compass, pointing in the direction of the dog's
current location.‍
One Alpha handheld device can track up to 20 devices (TT dog
collar devices and Alpha handheld devices).‍
NOTE: Both the collar and the handheld device must have
acquired satellites before you can track the dog on the handheld
device.‍

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.‍
1 Select Setup > Training > Training Buttons.‍
2 Select the area at the top of the screen directly below the
keys.‍
3 Select the intensity level for the 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.‍
Customizing the Training Keys
Before you can assign the training keys to a dog, you must add
a dog to the handheld device (page 3).‍
You can change the mode of the training keys to customize
each key for a specific stimulation intensity level and for each
dog.‍ 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 (page 6).‍
1 Select Setup > Training > Training Buttons > Change
Mode.‍
2 Select the top of the screen directly under the key you are
customizing.‍
3 Select the dog you want to train with this key.‍
4 Select an intensity level for the key.‍
5 If you are using traditional stimulation mode, select LOW,
MED, or HI.‍
6 Select momentary (M), continuous (C), or tone (T).‍
7 Repeat steps 3-6 for all three keys.‍
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.‍
When you put the collar on the dog, make sure that the contact
points are tight against the neck (page 4).‍
8 If you need to train with more than three keys, select
Insert Page, and program the additional keys.‍
9 Select .‍

Removing the Contact Points
Basic Training Commands
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.‍
You should begin training your dog with a few basic commands
without using the Alpha training system to correct the dog.‍ You
should train the three basic commands in the following order:
"heel," "sit," and "here.‍"
During initial training, you should put the dog collar device on
the dog, but the device should be turned off.‍ This allows the dog
to get used to the device before you start using it to correct the
dog.‍ This also helps to prevent "collar-wise" behavior
(page 7).‍
Initially, you should keep the training sessions short and only
train one command during a session.‍ This way, the dog is less
likely to become confused and training should progress more
quickly.‍ Pay close attention while training the dog, so you can
begin to learn when to go faster or slower, and when to take a
break.‍
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 (page 3).‍
By default, the training keys are set to the lowest stimulation
setting, with momentary (M), continuous (C), and tone (T) 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
(page 6).‍

Dog Training
With plenty of repetition, consistency, patience, and a lot of
praise, the dog should begin to obey these commands after
several lessons.‍ Each dog learns at a different rate, and some
dogs may take longer to learn these commands.‍ After the dog
demonstrates a basic understanding of these commands while
on a leash, training with collar stimulations can be introduced,
while keeping the dog on the leash.‍
Preventing Collar-Wise Behavior
If the Alpha training system is not used properly as part of your
overall training program, the dog may exhibit "collar-wise"
behavior.‍ This occurs when the dog obeys commands while
wearing the dog collar device, but does not obey commands
when the device is removed.‍ You should follow these tips to
prevent this behavior.‍
• Begin training the dog without using the Alpha training
system to correct the dog (page 6).‍
• Turn off the dog collar device and put it on the dog during
initial training.‍
This allows the dog to get used to the device before you start
using it to correct the dog.‍
• Turn off the dog collar device and put it on the dog outside of
your training sessions.‍
This allows the dog to get used to the device and helps to
prevent the dog from associating the presence of the device
with training or obedience.‍
• Reward the dog with praise whenever the dog obeys a
command.‍
Training to Heel
Before you begin training, put a leash on the dog, and select an
area with minimal distractions.‍
The first command that you will teach the dog is the “heel”
command.‍
1 With the dog at your side on a leash, command the dog to
“heel,” and begin walking forward while gently pulling on the
leash.‍
2 If the dog gets in front of you, repeat the command “heel,”
and move in another direction or pull back on the leash.‍
If
3 the dog starts to lag behind you, lightly tug on the leash to
bring the dog back to your side.‍
Reward the dog with praise when the dog obeys the command.‍
Training to Sit and Stay
Before you begin training, put a leash on the dog, and select an
area with minimal distractions.‍ Before you train to sit and stay,
you should first train to heel.‍
The actual command is “sit,” and the “stay” command is implied.‍
When you command the dog to sit, the dog should stay until you
indicate otherwise.‍
1 Begin training this command walking the dog on a leash in
the heel position.‍
Stop
walking, pull up on the leash, and command the dog to
2
"sit.‍"
3 Maintain steady pressure on the leash until the dog obeys
the command.‍
4 If the dog does not obey and seems confused, gently push
down on the dog's back above the flank, to make the dog sit.‍
Reward the dog with praise when the dog sits and stays.‍
Training to Come Here
Before you begin training, put a leash on the dog, and select an
area with minimal distractions.‍ Before you begin training the dog
to come "here," you should first train the dog to "heel" and "sit.‍"
Also, you may need to use a long leash to effectively train
"here.‍"
Dog Training
Teaching your dog to come here is the most important
command.‍ The "here" command allows you to maintain control
of your dog and can be used to call your dog away from a
potentially dangerous situation.‍ This command must be taught
properly.‍
1 With the dog in a sitting position, move away to the end of
the leash.‍
Command
the dog to come “here” while gently tugging on
2
the leash.‍
3 Reward the dog with praise as soon as the dog begins to
move toward you.‍
4 If the dog begins to veer away, gently tug on the leash, and
repeat the command to come "here.‍"
The dog might resist this command.‍ With repetition and
patience, the dog will learn to obey the command.‍
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 (page 8), 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.‍
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.‍
Training Intensities and Methods
The Alpha system provides two methods of training stimulation
intensity levels.‍ The default intensity method, linear, contains 18
stimulation levels.‍ The lowest level of stimulation is 1, and the
levels increase sequentially to 18.‍
The second method, traditional, contains 6 numbered levels that
each have a high (HI), medium (MED), and low (LOW) setting.‍
Level 1 on LOW produces a very slight stimulation that is hardly
perceived.‍ Level 6 on HI produces a very strong stimulation,
equivalent to level 18 in the linear method.‍ You should find the
correct training intensity level and use LOW, MED, or HI levels
as needed.‍
The Alpha system uses momentary (M) and continuous (C)
types of stimulations.‍ Momentary stimulation applies a brief
stimulation when you press the key, regardless of how long the
key is held.‍ Continuous stimulation applies stimulation to the
7
dog as long as the key is held, for a maximum of 8 seconds.‍
Your stimulations should typically be far shorter than 8 seconds.‍
Continuous stimulation can be useful when first starting training
with your dog.‍
You can also train using a tone (T).‍ When you select T for a
key, the key press activates an audible tone instead of
stimulation.‍ Using the tone can be a helpful training tool.‍
NOTE: The tone volume cannot be changed.‍ Changing the
intensity of the tone does not adjust the volume.‍
Choosing the Correct Intensity Level
1 Set the training keys to the lowest level (page 6).‍
2 Press 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.‍
Training the Dog to Heel and Sit with the Collar
Before you begin training your dog using the collar, your dog
must show a grasp of the "heel," "sit," and "come" commands
while on the leash, you must put on the collar (page 4), and you
must find the correct intensity level (page 8).‍
When beginning collar training, start with the "heel" and "sit"
commands.‍
1 With the dog at your side on a leash, pull up on the leash,
and command the dog to "sit.‍"
2 If the dog does not sit immediately, press a training key
briefly, and repeat the command to "sit.‍"
3 Reward the dog with praise when the dog obeys the
command.‍
After the dog begins obeying the "sit" command without
collar stimulation, you should move on to the "heel"
command.‍
4 With the dog at your side on a leash and with the collar on,
command “heel” and begin walking forward while gently
pulling on the leash.‍
5 If the dog not heel, press a training key briefly, repeat the
command to “heel”, and move in another direction or pull
back on the leash.‍
6 Reward the dog with praise when the dog obeys the
command.‍
Training the Dog to Come Here with the Collar
Before you begin training your dog to come "here" using the
collar, your dog must have a strong grasp of the "heel" and "sit"
commands using the collar, you must put on the collar (page 4),
and you must find the correct intensity level (page 8).‍ Also, you
may need to use a long leash to effectively train "here.‍"
1 With the dog in a sitting position, move away to the end of
the leash.‍
2 Command the dog to come “here.‍”
3 If the dog does not move immediately toward you, press a
training key briefly, gently tug on the leash, and repeat the
command to come "here.‍"
8
4 Reward the dog with praise as soon as the dog begins to
move toward you.‍
5 If the dog begins to veer away, press a training key briefly,
and repeat the command to come "here.‍"
