Dogtra E-collars

8 posts in this topic

I am in the process of picking up my first e-collar. I have decided to get a dogtra. Does anyone know which models are the best. They all seem to have the same features. I was looking at the the 1900, 1700, and the 280. I have a springer that is about 39 pounds. I don't know if size has anything to do with it. I read somewhere that the 1700 and 1900 were for larger breeds. Not sure if that is accurate.

I just checked out the HSOforum. I guess that I would go for the 1600 if I was a duck hunter because it is fully waterproof. The other ones talk about the level of power as being a factor and whether the dog is hard to work with out not. I wouldn't think a smaller dog would need a big tap to get it's attention.

By the way, I own 3 Dogtra collars. I looked at others and acutally had a sport dog but took it back cause I didn't like the features. I'm happy with what I have. I just sent the oldest in for new batteries - 5 years old - and got it back in less than a week and it was only $17.50. Great Service.

Yeah I definetly want one that is fully waterproof. According to the dogtra HSOforum, all of the models I mentioned are fully waterproof.

Check again. The Dogtra HSOforum:

200NCP Gold (Low-to-medium power)

Pet-trainer or sporting dog unit for mild-mannered to medium disposition dogs.

The 200NCP Gold is an entry-level sporting dog unit with low to medium power. This dynamo is a bestseller year in and year out. It features water-resistant transmitter, waterproof receiver, rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, half-mile range, nick and constant stimulation, and our patented non-stimulating pager mode. Throw in Dogtra's industry-leading durability and value-pricing, and you can see why the 200NCP Gold is at the top of its class.

Have a Dogtra 200 Gold NCP that is four years old. It has worked great with no problems. I really like the pulse vibrate feature almost all I use. Transmitter is a little large when carried on a lanyard while hunting. I would highly recommend.

I have the Dogtra 2500 T&B and love it. A friend of mine sold his Tri-Tronics because he's getting a second pup and is getting the 2502 T&B.

Jimmy,

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
