Iím with Dean on this one. I have always used a brass bell since I had my first bird dog at age 14. I even use it on huns and sharptails in Saskatchewan. I tried a beeper collar years ago but hated the beeping sound. Itís unnatural and it does sound like a big truck backing up. I imagine that they are annoying to dogs.

I have had many bird dogs over the years and never had one go deaf. I also like the tinkle of the brass bell. It is a pleasant sound and not loud like those that sound like cow bells. To each his own, but Iíll always use the brass bell.

You can always run a strip or two of electrical tape around the bell to adjust the tone to your liking

Yes, that would work but I never liked the cow bell sound. The tinkle of the brass bell is nice. I always liked that best.
