Dogtra 2300NCP - Opinions?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a Dogtra 2300NCP e-collar online formy lab and only afterwards did I think to look here for feedback. I searched the forum and found only a few references to it. For those of you that have this model, how do you like it? What I'm interested in is the build quality, reliability, how long the rechargeable battery lasts, time to recharge, and the overall ease of use.

You bought a good unit and should have no worries. Hard to go wrong with Dogtra or Tritronics. Your recharge time will be listed in the manual. I have a 1702NCP and it has been great.

I own the same unit as 311Hemi. Awesome unit; durability, controls, battery etc. I have had Tritronics before and while they are good they don't stack up to a Dogtra in my opinion.

You made a good purchase.

I have the 2300. Great unit! I have had it for about a year now and had to replace the collar battery just recently. Overall, the quality it very good. Works great!

I have the dogtra 2000 T&B and dogtra 2502 T&B, nothing but great things to say here. These collars see the field and the water and have never let me down.

I've never used a Tritronics to compare it with, but do own a Dogtra collar. It's never failed me yet - through lots of junk - abuse, etc. I think you will like you collar!

I bought my 2300 just over a year ago and it seems like a well made unit. I've noticed one problem with mine and maybe it's normal but on the rare ocassion that I have to shock or just warn my dog the number of bars on the screen will go from 4 to one or two (battery strength) and the light goes from green to red and it stays that way until I shut it off and turn it back on. Then it will show 4 bars again. I have it set at 40 out of 127. Even with it down to one or two bars, it still seems to work. Although I wonder if the range is reduced. I should probably test that.

I hardly used it last year because she was just a pup and so I never noticed it until this season. I did email Dogtra about it 2 - 3 weeks ago and haven't gotten a response yet. I guess I'll have to call them.

Anyone else noticed this with there Dogtras?

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
