INTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing a D.T. Systems
Beeper Collar!
The BTB 800 and BTB 809 give you the ability to keep track
of your dog’s location when he is out of sight and lets you
know when he has gone on point. This allows you to find
the dog quickly and prevents you from making the mistake
of calling the dog to you when he’s on point.
The BTB 800 and BTB 809 beeper collars are light weight
and built to withstand the rugged conditions and heavy cover
dogs often encounter.
The use of both the sound booster element and the long
duration, double beep make the BTB 800 and BTB 809
collars much easier to hear at long range. (Actual yardage
will vary depending upon the relative position of yourself
and your dog and other variables such as cover and wind
speed and direction).
PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The BTB 800 and BTB 809 have two operating modes, Run/
Point and Point only.
• When Run/Point is selected the collar will emit a
double beep every five seconds while the dog is
running and will emit a double beep every two
seconds when the dog is on point.
• When the Point only mode is selected the collar
will emit a double beep every two seconds when
the dog is on point but will remain silent when the
dog is running.
The on/off switch must be depressed for two full seconds to
shut the collar off. This prevents the collar from accidentally
shutting off when the dog is running through heavy cover.

blink to a rapid blink (twice per second).
NOTE: If the batteries have been allowed to
completely run down then the light will not blink at all.
To charge the battery, plug the charger into the battery
receptacle on the collar and plug the adapter into any
standard 110 Volt household wall outlet. (A 220 Volt
European adapter is available from D.T. Systems).
Recharge the battery for no more than 14 hours.
Important: After charging make sure to plug in the rubber
receptacle plug firmly to prevent dirt and water from
entering the unit.

GETTING YOUR DOG ACCUSTOMED
TO THE SOUND
• Turn on the collar and leave it outside the dog’s
kennel area for about a half an hour. Make sure
you leave the mode set at Run/Point and do not
change the mode to Point only.
• Repeat this several times, until you can see that
the dog is disregarding the beeper.
• Next, fill the Speaker Horn with tissue paper and
fit the beeper collar on the dog. Let him run
around a little while. Gradually remove the tissue
paper as the dog becomes more accustomed to the
beeping sound. Now when you take him hunting
he will not be bothered by the sound of the
beeper.
