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.

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
