wife doesnt understand why i need tracker/e collar? i want to get the alpha mainly because the only trainer i have is the sport dog yard trainer, it seems pointless to buy tri tronics and a astro, i know the alpha is very expensive but by the time i get a decent e collar and an astro ill be at the same money (about), the thing i do understand where she is coming from the extra collars are pricey, whats your ideas

Just buy her a coach purse and she will get over it. Works for me. But my wife loves and understands dog and training.

Explain to her how well they hold there value, and buy through eBay used. Also that it could very well save a dogs life.

It's always easy to ask for forgiveness than to ask permission. My last coonhound I just brought home late one night after a hunt. In the morning my wife looked out the back window and said "who dog is that?".... Of coarse I should have known a Walker would stick out like a sore thumb trying to hide it with my Plotts. Lol

i think you must be fair and respectful about it. if the household has enough money, meaning the roof isn't leaking, there's gas in the car, food in the kitchen and your wife can spend some too, then you have every right to spend money too. you shouldn't go into dept to buy a dog or a tracker, imo, but should save until you get the money. most people get into trouble because they want everything now. many people never learned to deny themselves. making money on the side and spending it, without your spouse knowing it, is being dishonest and disrespectful and undermines your marriage. i don't own a garmin gps tracker. i want one and can afford to buy one. but i know that no matter what i get, it want make me happy but for a little while. it woulldn't be long before i'd be wanting something else. our wants will always outpace our ability to buy. how can i face GOD if i buy a gps tracker and i fail to give 10% of my income to the church.

A couple places I hunt, you can get all turned around in Russian olive. Its thick and if you do get turned around you need the garmin. With out it, it would be some long walks back to the truck.

Oh dogmeat,you are wise beyond your years my friend! I have done the hiding money and deceiving my wife and its not worth it. I felt horrible because I lied to her and I myself will never do it again!

So you don't have a gps, because you haven't figured out away to make enough money to tithe and afford a gps? Maybe you should consider the value of your hounds life, last time I checked. My wants rarely out pace what I want to buy. If I do want something and I can afford it, then I buy it. The problem with constant spending has nothing to do with wether you tithe or not, or how much you want or don't want. It's understanding commerce, and capitallism in a free society. Ya have to understand its peoples job to make ya want to buy something, to make you think you need it. It's called marketing. Also the more ya spend the less ya save, and the longer it will take you to accumulate personal wealth.

I believe this thread was supposed to be rather light hearted.

I would tell your wife she can use it on you. That way if she is a wondering where ya got to, she can just look at the garmin strapped to her hip.
