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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
