The Tri-Tronics Pro 100 is a good choice for training dogs using the low-level continuous stimulation technique that is featured by many professional trainers in such books as the Tritronics Retriever Training book, the Rick Smith Method from the Pointing Dog Journal, the Jerome Robinson Ultimate Guide to Bird Dog Training book, the George Hickox videos, and the Perfect Start / Perfect Finish videos.
The Pro 100 has a wide choice of stimulation levels with gradual increases between levels.
With the Low, Medium, and High stimulation choices, you can gradually increase the stimulation level one handed without ever looking at the transmitter.
This allows you to precisely increase the stimulation without taking your eyes off the dog and you have a free hand for working a check cord, bird launcher, winger, or auto backer transmitter, blank pistol, or shotgun.
When you need to raise the level using the dial, the ISS dial allows you to do this with your thumb, so you can continue to operate it one handed and you never have to look at the dial.
I have never found a dog that was so sensitive that it could not be trained using this collar.
This is the Tri-Tronics Pro 100. It is my favorite of the Pro units. It is a three dog system. It has 18 levels of continuous stimulation using the two red buttons, and then six levels of momentary stimulation using the black button.
The stimulation on a Pro 100, 18 levels come from the two red buttons. Your bottom button is low. Your upper button is medium. And then you hold the two buttons together to get a high stimulation. On the dial you have 1-6, so it's a progressive increase. On 1 you have a low 1, a medium 1, and a high 1. And then you turn your dial to 2 and you'd have a low 2, a medium 2, high 2. Stimulation climbs that way in that a high 1 is lower than a low 2. So it's an 18 level increase and you can just gradually walk up stimulation levels as your dog needs it until you find the right level and then move back and forth.
One of my favorite things about this design is that it's very easy to operate without looking at the transmitter. You start off on a level 1—low 1, medium 1, high 1—move to 2. I know where I am. I'm on a 3 now. I'm going to work my way back down to a 2. So very simple to raise and lower stimulation level, find the right level for your dog depending on the situation.
Just like every other Pro unit you have a toggle switch to switch between dogs. It's black, red, blue. Move back and forth between them. Green button is your tone button. You also have the accessory feature on the dial. What this does is this allows you to add the accessory beeper to your unit, mainly for pointing dogs. And you can control it from your transmitter. You have the N, which allows you to cut off all of the stimulation on the transmitter. I use that when my dogs are in the truck and I am moving from spot to spot and I don't have to worry about accidentally stimulating a dog.
Dutch Shepherd. Competes. I had a Tritronics Pro 1000 for about 13 years and it finally died. I found out that the Pro 1000 was discontinued and parts were scarce. I opted for a collar from a different manufacturer. The collar seemed nice and well made but the simulation did not seem consistent. I was always very happy my Pro 1000 but was just looking at price when I replaced it.
I called Gun Dog Supply and spoke with Steve and he said send it back. We discussed the Tritronics options and I decided on the Pro 100. The whole return process took just over a week. I've been using my Pro 100 for two weeks now and am very happy with it. I wish I would have ordered it in first place.
The customer service at Gun Dog Supply was simply amazing. I especially want to thank Steve for taking the time with me on the phone with me to get the right collar for me.

Brittany Spaniel. Hunts. Really great product, The High, Med and Low continuous button are really great.. Plus there is the Med nick always available if wanted. The range is really great in every conditions.. Also the fact that it is waterproof helps a lot.. The only thing I could say against it Is the size of the remote,, A little bit smaller and it could be heaven ..
Really great service at gun dog supply Thank you very much

Labrador Retriever. Hunts. Found the "sweet" spot that my lab best responds to. Makes training and correction easy without being heavy handed. Instant correction is essential when the dog is at a distance and the and the Tr i- Tronics Pro - 100 work flawlessly! Tri - Tronics makes a great product.

Labrador. Hunts. The ability to initiate low, medium and/or high stimulation with just a push of the button is a great advantage. One only needs to set the selector dial once before utilizing the e-collar. The durability of the product is also evident. Great product; I would recommend to everyone. Additionally, the service received from gundog-intl Supply is second-to-none. I will continue to be a loyal customer. Thanks, gundog-intl Supply!

TT Pro 100 G3 EXP -- I love it. Buttons are easy to use and the toggle switch stays in place well so I don't accidently get the wrong dog.
Personally, I ordered a collar from you guys (another brand that shall remain nameless), hated it, and sent it back. You changed the collars out for me with nary a complaint and I was back in the field in less than a week with my new 3-dog TT system. I love your customer service. You are fast and efficient as well as friendly. Thanks!

Tri-tronics PRO 100
Rated 5 stars from 7 user ratings.

The Tri-Tronics Pro 100 G3 EXP is a versatile training collar and a good choice for all-around use with 18 levels of continuous stimulation instantly selectable at the transmitter. This means that you can instantly adjust intensity whenever distractions increase.
This collar expands up to 3 dogs. Note the 3-dog toggle switch.
Teach yard work/obedience and enforce known commands with lower levels of stimulation. Use higher levels to stop unwanted chasing or to overcome strong distractions. The Pro 100 G3 EXP is a good choice for training any breed of dog. Audio tone with a separate button comes standard.
We recommend the Tri-Tronics Pro 100 and the Pro 500 models for yard work (obedience) training and any other training where low levels of continuous stimulation are used to reinforce previously taught commands. The Pro 100 and the Pro 500 models have a low and a medium button for continuous stimulation (as well as a high continuous stimulation button). The continuous stimulation produced by using the low and medium buttons on the Pro 100 and the Pro 500 is lower than the continuous stimulation levels on the Classic 70, Flyway Special, Upland Special, and Pro 200. The medium and low continuous stimulation levels on the Pro 100 and Pro 500 are particularly useful with sensitive dogs/breeds.

Tri-tronics PRO 100 Range
Collar range up to 1 mile -- maximum range is based on "line of sight." This means that to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver and the terrain should be flat and open. This isn't going to happen in most places that we spend time with our dogs. The range on all of the systems that we carry depends on training conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.
Tri-Tronics G3 systems feature a "Pulsating Continuous Stimulation" that increases the system's ability to reach maximum distance in heavy cover and difficult terrain situations. Because this is a "broken" signal instead of a single transmission it does a better job of reaching the receiver at maximum distance. The pulses are so rapid that it gives the feeling of the old style continuous stimulation but increases the transmitter's ability to reach maximum distance.
Remember, too much range will never hurt, but too little can be a problem.
