John Wick

“Everything can be done a better way.”

The type of person with a widely known personal motto is rare. But that’s exactly who you need when you’re looking for opinions and expertise. From the moment we first entered the sporting dog market with the world’s first GPS-enabled canine tracking system, to today’s electronic-trainers with Tri-Tronics technology, we asked for the opinions and expertise of some of the biggest names in dog training. We asked them what they needed in a device, what’s out there that they do and don’t like, and to put our existing devices through their paces. Their feedback is the basis for the truly rugged, innovative products we’re building for the future.

That’s why we’re proud and excited about our relationship with “Uncle John” Wick. John is known for his life-long efforts to help and encourage other hound hunters, as well as literally writing the book on hunting with hounds, “WALK WITH WICK: The Tree Dog Encyclopedia” volumes I and II. It’s no wonder he’s a member of the American Coon Hunters Association Hall of Fame. John is now proudly using Garmin e-collars and dog tracking systems such Astro, for tracking, and Alpha, for tracking and training.

But we’re not just keeping John’s opinions and expertise to ourselves. We’re making his expertise available to Garmin customers. Here’s where you can learn more about e-training hounds as well as general dog training with articles (and videos) from John Wick.
