Dogtra 2500 T&B Reviews

7 posts in this topic

Looking to get a new training/beeper collar this year. Was wondering if anybody owns the Dogtra 2500. I have been looking at a few different collars and before I make the major purchase I thought I would come here to ask the experts for advice.

I love my dogtra 2000 t&b. The 2500 is a great choice but you can still get the 2000 and this is why I would. The 2000 has the beeper on one side of the collar and the electrodes on the other. On the 2500 they are one unit. 99% of the time after your dog has been running around the electrode part of the collar is on the bottom side of the neck of your dog. then on the 2500 the beeper is pointing towards the ground and you don't get the range like on the 2000 where when the electrode part of the collar is on the bottom of the dogs neck the beeper is pointing straight up. Some will say "well your dog shouldn't be that far away anyway. Well hunting in high winds you will be glad for it being that little bit extra loud. In my honest opinion these are the best collars on the market.

I was at G.F. looking at collars and was very impressed with the Dogtra brand. After I get off from work today I am going to go pick up the 2300NCP model. I dont need the beeper but what I do need is 3/4 mile and totaly waterproof. I have talked to a couple trainers that I have in mind and they both recommended this brand.

Just remember when hunting in the thick stuff, hills the range to a collar will be cut by more then half. Spend the money and get something good.

I have had my 2000 t&b for 5 yrs and love it. I also would rather not have the speaker on the stimulation unit where its at on the 2500. If you can get the 2000 that would be my choice. I saw a review of the 2500 and with any new product there has been some issues but im sure dogtra will get them ironed out and it will be as quality as the 2000 is. Adam

I've had a 2500T&B for a year now.

Use it at least 3-4 times a week.

Love it.

Wish I would've gotten the 2 dog version.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
