Multi-dog Tracking GPS and Remote Training Device in One
- Tracks up to 20 dogs or buddies from up to 9 miles away

An invaluable tool in the field, the Alpha 100 helps
you achieve optimum performance from your sporting dogs. It combines
proven Garmin GPS dog tracking with Tri-Tronics® electronic dog training
technology. This easy-to-use integrated handheld system allows you to
track and train your dogs in the field at a range of up to 9 mi away,
delivering their exact position as often as every 2.5 seconds.
With multiple Alpha 100 handhelds and TT™ 15
dog devices, pinpoint up to 20 dogs or hunters’ exact positions on a
large, glove-friendly touchscreen display even when they are out of
sight. Because Alpha 100 comes preloaded with TOPO U.S. 100K maps,
you’ll always know your surroundings.
Track Your Dogs
Measure each dog’s speed, distance and the direction being traveled.
Plus, receive notifications when a dog is “Treed” or “On Point.” A
single Alpha 100 can track up to 20 dogs or fellow hunters when using
either additional Alpha 100 handhelds or TT 15 devices (each sold
separately). Or, choose tracking only with the new T 5 dog device. For competitions that don’t allow stimulation, tone or vibe, the compatible T 5 tracking device is an excellent alternative.
Your free 1-year subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery¹ allows you to have a better-than-real-life view of terrain, including roads, water, woods and more.
Train and Control
Two modes of level progression let you customize your training even further.
Alpha 100 helps you train and control your dogs to stop chasing
unwanted game. Easy to access training buttons allow you to communicate
separately to each dog through safe and effective features, including 18
levels of momentary and 18 levels of continuous stimulation or an
audible tone or vibe command. Plus, a lockout setting is available to
avoid accidental stimulation or tone.
Select from 2 stimulation modes to customize your training even
further. Traditional stimulation allows you to make quick changes (low,
medium and high) within a predetermined stimulation level (1 through 6),
whereas linear stimulation allows progressively more stimulation from
level 1 through level 18.
Extend Your Battery
When using the TT 15, switch to Rescue Mode to prolong the battery
life. When the TT 15 reaches approximately 25 percent battery life, it
will automatically slow down the update rate at which it pings Alpha 100
from every 2.5 seconds to every 2 minutes. This mode conserves the
battery life of the TT 15, giving you more time to search for and locate
Plan Your Next Trip
Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp,
software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and
tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures
that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp
displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen,
including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an
unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a
BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
Turn Your Computer Into a BaseStation for Tracking Dogs
Load your laptop with BaseStation software to turn it into a field
control center for tracking multiple dogs and/or buddies (up to 20 Alpha
units or TT 15 dog devices). View real-time GPS information on the
larger display of your computer, making it ideal for canine search and
rescue teams. And because it’s GPS/GLONASS, you'll get safe, secure and
more effective tracking, even where Internet and cell phone service
¹The BirdsEye subscription is only for the Alpha 100 and TT15 bundle.
Due to varying international
regulations, this version of the Alpha is approved for use only in the
United States. The sale and unlicensed use of the Garmin Alpha dog
tracking and training system in any form is currently prohibited by the
Canadian government. In June 2009, Industry Canada announced that the
MURS radio frequency used by the Alpha would be allowed in Canada
following a 5-year transition period. However, in June 2014 Industry
Canada reversed its position, noting “the Department does not feel that
the introduction of MURS devices in Canada is warranted at this time, and
has decided to defer the introduction of MURS devices in Canada until a
clearer indication of actual need is provided by Canadian MURS
advocates and/or stakeholders.” Garmin remains interested in
offering the Alpha to our Canadian customers, and will be contacting
Industry Canada in support of that goal. Potential Canadian customers
should also contact their local Industry Canada office to express their
desire to have the product approved for use in Canada.
