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.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
