Not only does the system let you command up to three dogs, but simultaneously pop quail, pigeons or pheasants from additional LCS Universal Bird Launchers, and even activate the LCS Remote Backing Dog. It's a bird dog system that totally streamlines the training process.
Particularly notable is their new Bird Dog Trainer, a value-priced training collar that has just about everything you'll ever need to train your dog, including a half-mile range, eight levels of stimulation, tone, three-dog expansion capability, a charger, and the ability to operate the optional Remote Backing Dog (great for pointing dog work) as well as the LCS Universal Bird Launcher.
If you own a natural backing dog, thank your lucky stars and the good sense you had in choosing a dog from quality breeding.
It has eight levels of stimulation and will also operate the LCS Universal Bird Launcher and LCS Backing Dog, also up to 1/2-mile away--all from the same hand-held transmitter.
Advertised as "the complete dog training system," the Trainer II has four main functions: stimulation on multiple levels quickly and easily delivered from a key board-type transmitter; a beeper/locator simply activated for keeping track of any dog on land or in water; a control button for triggering a backing dog silhouette; and a switch for remotely operating a spring-loaded, box-type bird and dummy launcher.
Now, for the collar's really unique feature: the Trainer II will remotely control several additional devices: the LCS Universal Bird Launcher (indispensable for training pointing dogs); the LCS Remote Backing Dog II (which makes training a dog to back much easier and convenient) and the LCS Retired Gunner for Backing Dog.
The unit's transmitter will also operate the Lion Country Supply Bird Launcher as well as the company's LCS Backing Dog silhouette.
In addition, the Trainer II has the capability to operate the Lion Country's Universal Bird Launcher and Remote Backing Dog in a single training session.
Featuring four easy and quick-to-transmit levels of stimulation with a 400-yard range, the Trainer II also has a remotely activated beeper/locator and the capability to operate the Lion Country's Universal Bird Launcher and Remote Backing Dog. An extra collar can now be added to any Trainer II.
This ensures the backing dog stops clear of the pointing dog and doesn't interfere.
One of the most functional features of the LCS Bird Dog Trainer II is ability to remotely control an optional LCS Universal Bird Launcher or an LCS Backing Dog with the transmitter provided with the unit.
