E-Collar Info

Recommended Posts

Ok fellow dog trainers, I would like to get a discussion going about E-collars. I am in the market but I guess I did not realize that there were SOOOOO many to choose from. If you currently use an E-collar, what do you like about it and what do you not like about it? What are some things that you can do without and what are some things that are a must? How about price? Sound off fellas, I am interested in your opinions!

I have used the TT sport 60 for two years with my lab and I have no complaints.
However my next collar will be a dogtra because I like the "pager" feature and the smaller sized transmitter.

I have a Dogtra 1200 NCP and I could not ask for anything more in a collar. N-is for nick, which is a quick nick to remind the dog to listen. C-is for constant. This give up to an 8-second correction that is perfect for force fetch training. It easily teaches the dog that it can "turn off pressure" by following a command. P-is for pager. I have heard people say that this is a useless feature on a collar, but to be honest, it is the most button I use the most. In two months of using the Dogtra I have rarely had to use the "burn" buttons. Usely once in the beginning of our training sessions she will ignore a command. All I have to do is vibrate the collar with the pager button and then she knows what comes next if she doesn't start obeying.
Another thing that is nice about the Dogtra is the transmitter. It is nice and small and fits nicely on a laynard around your neck. I believe it is also the only waterproof transmitter there is. There are water resistant, but the Dogtra can be submerged and still will keep working.
It also has rheostatic power levels from 0-100. I have never gone past 20 and I have tried that level on myself and it has less of a jolt than a 9V battery on your tongue.

I agree. Dogtra has done a great job in turning out a useful and affordable unit. The water proof is invaluable, speaking from going down in the swamp more than once. I shorted out a few other models but this one still keeps ticking and as stated the size of the transmitter is great. Lots of variability on levels too. I think on mine I read where the constant button will stay on for up to 20 seconds. The tri-tronics was only 8. Maybe wrong but I have not needed to use it nearly that long anyway.

If you want used ones check collar clinic. They might have something you like too. They can get spendy when you add that to all the other gear you "need" and "need to replace or upgrade"

I have the tri tronics clasic 70. I like it because it only has one button on the side. The other feature i like is the beeper button on top of the remote. I use it for silent recal, but it could be used for any number of things.

I have the Classic 70 also. No complaints as to how it works. I have had inotech, and will never buy another. The Tri-tronics works awesome, the only thing that I do not care for is the transmitter. While hunting it is fine (belt loop) But other than that, the transmitter is kind of an inconvenience.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye are being caught at a variety of depths with 24-27’ being the most consistent. Glow red with gold has been a hot combo this week. Rattle baits continue to draw active fish to our houses. Sauger activity has been very strong, providing Anglers the opportunity for full limits before new regulations take effect on March 1st. New limit regulations give a combination of six walleye/sauger with no more than 4 walleye. The slot of 19.5”-28 must be immediately release with one walleye over 28’ to be allowed in possession.

      Canadian crappies are still filling buckets and freezers, they can be found near the bottom in 32-35ft. Super light tackle and willingness to keep trying different jig combinations is producing the most fish.  Many tulibee are being seen this week, which make for a tasty treat out of the smoker.  Walleye fishing continues to be very good in traditional areas, depth at 23-28ft. 

      Snow depth in our areas is between 2 and 2.5 ft. Trails are in great condition after last weeks snow and wind conditions. 

      Until next week, 
      Sunset Lodge
    • I must be mad at math, honestly we just lost 4 in a row and weren't good before that and yet we cling to 8th place. We can't even tank right and get a better draft pick. 
    • Borsch posted a reminder in the st cloud forum, so I wont take credit for being johnny on the spot but in 13 days you'all need to get a new fishing license.
    • I put a call into the Wisconsin DNR, they said March 1st license will be available.
    • good for you guys leech!!  and a darn good lookin family too!!!  being blessed like that is darn good!!!
    • What do you mean they are still in a playoff spot. Come on think positive! At least wait until they get done playing the blues today before you start to sing the blues. 
    • Tried to purchase the D season Wisconsin tag i was drawn for yesterday. Clerk said try again at the end of March, any truth to that? I will call the Wisconsin DNR on Tuesday (holiday tomorrow).
    • Well put in a few miles with the grandkids and daughter by Orock MN on Sat.  Trails were pretty nice but there were lots of sleds out and I'm sure they will be pretty beat up by the end of the weekend! Little guys had a great time driving and riding in the sleigh. Hot chocolate and cookies are always a good ride break warmer! Fun day, God has blessed me well.
