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:

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.

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
