Dogtra 2300NCP - Opinions?

7 posts in this topic

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?

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
