    As a professional dog trainer, I use this for off leash control of larger dogs. WHEN USED PROPERLY, this item is not torture for your dog. It is simply a suggestion for the dog to pay attention to their master. The S series is their new updated version, and hopefully the batteries are better than the NCP I believe it was called, because those batteries only lasted about 2 years. Overall, with the 127 different levels of stimulation, your are not hurting your dog, once again when used properly, the range on it is more than most will ever use, it is fully waterproof, Very durable, and the most consistent with the rate of correction. A setting of 45 for example on one, will be the same as a setting of 45 on another. So they are interchangeable if you have to own multiple collars Like I do. HIghly recommend this product, but I do recommend hiring a professional trainer that uses E-collars for their programs, to teach you the proper way to use this product. All of my clients for the last 2 years have been purchasing this collar for my training program, and ALL of them love the results.

    ****Update***** Shortly after the 30 day return period ended, the collar developed major issues with inconsistent stim. Dogtra would not return or exchange, even though it is such a new collar and I send video showing it malfunctioning with the testing light on. Instead I have to wait for an unknown amount of weeks with no ecollar for my dog when I just forked over $230 for a collar that says “Proven Reliability” on the box.Compare this to the customer service that Ecollar Technologies provides: if you experience any problems within the 2 year full coverage period, they will immediately ship out a replacement and send a prepaid return slip for the defective unit. I’ll be buying ecollars from them from now on.I would highly recommend against buying this collar, not only for the terrible customer service and potential inconvenience, but also because I wouldn’t trust in the reliability (of this model at least). What if the collar happeens to fail on you when you need it most.I’ve been a loyal Dogtra customer for years and this is such a disappointment.—————————————————I have owned numerous models of Dogtra collars, and currently have a dogtra arc and this 1900s. Compared to the ARC, the dial is a little more sturdy and less easy to accidentally move around while its in your pocket. The rubber cover thing for the charging ports is more firmly covered (the seal was pretty loose on my ARC). I really like that they added a button to turn off the receiver rather than having to touch the remote to the collar to turn it off. Much more convenient. The other improvement is that they made the vibrate/pager more noticeable to the dog than with the ARC. To me it doesn’t seem that much stronger of a vibrate, but its a little noisier if that makes sense.Its a lot more bulky than the arc though, and would definitely recommend the arc if your dog doesn’t need the higher levels (most probably don’t).Overall I’ve been happy with it, but after my new dog is fully ecollar trained and I can be sure he won’t need the higher levels of stem, I’ll buy the Arc for him instead because of the smaller side. Im just sticking with this model because he’s very flighty and had an extremely intense prey drive, and I want to be sure I have the higher levels in case of emergency during the beginning stages of off leash training. :)Another note: I don’t find these streamlined collars to have a more comfortable fit for the dogs like they advertise. They are actually not as great of a fit because the entire bulk of the receiver is under the strap, pressing into the dog’s neck. The pressure is less evenly distributed. In my case, the streamlined design is worth it because of people in my area’s perception of dogs with ecollars. People here are more likely to be scared seeing an off leash dog with an ecollar, and also in a small community, rumors might spread about my dogs being unfriendly and dangerous (even though they are actually overly friendly). With this design combined with my dogs’ fluffiness, no one can tell its an ecollar. Also as someone who is very into photography, my pictures look a little nicer as well.If you don’t mind the boxed receiver look though, I’f highly recommend the Dogtra 2300 instead. The fit is better and the quality of the remote is much nicer(especially the dial)! Its as good or better in absolutely every way besides not having that handy off button on the receiver.Also some good resources for ecollar training: Jeff Gellman, Sean O’ Shea (EXCELLENT new DVD out), and Lou Castle. All of these trainers have a ton of good free content online thats easy to learn from. 🙂

    Have a Belgian Malinois going through IPO that I use this model with. Definite upgrade from like earlier model. Less movement around neck and more streamlined. Have older version with our GSD, will upgrade at a later date.

    I have a couple German shepherds that I wanted to off leash train and I read about doing it with e-collars. i was a little hesitant because I bought a cheap bark collar for one of my previous dogs and the thing burnt holes in his neck. Started looking at some of the reviews on cheaper ones and was seeing like cases, so I decided I wasn’t going cheap this time and am I ever so glad I didn’t. Buy these! These are really high quality collars that you can feel and see as soon as you pull it out of the box. They won’t burn your dog and they work great. Great range and fast charge. Tried it on myself and I could do it at level 60 no problem and I haven’t needed to use it more than 25 on the dogs but most of the time less than that. Worth every penny

    Excellent professional grade e-collars. Unbelievable how long a charge lasts. Have used for several long hikes and afterwards the “fully charged” green light appears after a minute of being plugged in. Highly recommended for off leash and/or aggression training. Vibrate option is a huge plus and it’s easy to differentiate between which collar to signal even outdoors in strong sunlight glare.

  6. (verified owner)

    People mistakenly think e-collars are cruel or hurt your dog, but it’s not true. They’re muscle stimulators to get your dog’s attention, especially if they’re a strong and active working breed. I actually tried the stimulation on my wrist (low to mid-range.. It’s not a shock feeling). Our husky (my second, his first) has learned proper boundaries with a lot of formal school and training; we only use her collar for off leash re-call or to reinforce correcting negative behavior (jumping into the planter, digging). Our school recommended Dogtra, and though it was expensive, it has been a great investment.

    Our 5 month old German shepherd puppy prior to this tool was having severe issues with jumping and nipping and general disobedience despite the exact same training using commands only. We watched tons of videos on how to use this tool properly to avoid anymore frustration for us and our new puppy. Within a couple days of training sessions using same commands and her “low setting working level” (read up on how to find right level for your dog its VITAL!) she’s now responding like a completely different dog. She’s so proud of herself now that we have a better way to communicate our wishes whether for safe play of gentle fetch with an 8 year old… Or staying put when told on her “place” (designated spot). I couldn’t sing enough praise for the Dogtra training collar. For those unsure of it being humane… Check out cesar millan’s use of same product line. Or think of low use as a touch to the dog to grab its attention. It’s amazing if used properly. We are beyond pleased!

    So happy with this collar. This is our second Dogtra collar. I like the slimmer design of the collar, it fits better on the dog. I did have a hard time moving the strap so ensure the placement was right, but that to me meant it wasn’t going to slip around while on the dog so I was okay with that. We did the full charge prior to use and have not had any issues. We use this on our dog solely, we do not have any fencing and he responds immediately. I like the variety of settings and modes for the buttons. I would recommend for anyone looking for off leash solutions for their dogs.

    These were recommended to us by our professional dog trainer. We’ve used them daily since they arrived. They are built quite well and are showing no signs of wear after about a month of daily usage. We’ve only had to charge them once or twice each with our usage (our dogs wear them only when we are home or actively training, so not constant usage). We’ve had no issues with it delivering stimulation to our dogs, which was mentioned in other reviews. Overall, very satisfied with the product and would recommend this product to others in search of an e-collar.

    Got this for a stubborn new adult dog that was a runner. Taking it slowly to train him right – short sessions and lots and lots of praise for good behavior- and he’s definitely developed great respect for me. It’s taken about two weeks of daily sessions, and we are now able to go out into the woods for long walks off leash. The ability to use them page feature as well as adjustable levels of “pressure” are very helpful in our training sessions. Suggest new users watch a few UTube videos posted by professional trainers on how to use this training aid. I found that very helpful to start with.

    Love it, love it, love it! It worked perfectly the first day for my 85lb dog. Love the rapid 2hr charging feature and bonus it’s also very easy to understand and operate.My very smart and stubborn dog listens now the first time. And since my dog is smart he learned quickly the very first day.Also want to add that my dog is trained, he’s just too smart for his own good sometimes and I have to gently remind him who’s the boss.I haven’t used the shock feature yet because the vibration is so intense it got his attention right away. The range states 3/4 mile but I don’t usually allow my dog to be that far away from me, we live in the city.I did try 2 other collars (PetTech 1200 yds & Altman 500 yds) before I purchased this one and now they are both in the trash. This collar is pricey at $200, But–Worth–Every–Penny!

    QUALITY! Things of quality are a joy to use long after purchasing. Cheap version of this technology suck because of reliability issues. If you have to use the shock function – to stop your dog from running out in front of a car – the device has to work flawlessly. But you also don’t want to accidentally shock your dog by “mistake”.The $59 version I first bought had 3- dog collars but I would not trust it to work when the stimulation went simultaneously to all 3- dogs! NO! You don’t want to shock 3 dogs to correct bad behavior from one. This one cost 4 times as much and for only one dog but I love the Dogtra equipment. The transmitter is solid, heavy, well designed for the location of buttons. The cheap one I first bought felt too light weight – like an empty paper box. And the procedure to turn on the collars was dumb, frustrating, unreliable.This model has low intensity vibration that is not enough to stop my Russian Wolfhound when running at 35 MPH to kill the neighbors cat. So I give a couple of vibrates – then a low intensity shock. If that isn’t enough this transmitter has a nice “volume control” like knob to increase shock level – with an display screen to tell you the setting. That way I know 15 just barely tweaks the dog, but 25 really gets his attention.SHOCK COLLARS, IN MY OPINION, SHOULD NOT BE SOLD TO THE PUBLIC UNLESS THE PERSON IS CERTIFIED AS A COMPETENT DOG TRAINER. Idiots, such as my neighbor, could not be bothered to train his un-neutered German Shorthaired Pointer. They are a hyper breed to start with and require professional level training. Idiot neighbor took his dog hunting with a friend and his dog spent all it’s time mounting the other guy’s dog. Bad day.So idiot who will not read a dog training book, or ever watch the excellent video that came with his shock collar. When he shocked his German Shorthaired Pointer it was not to train it but to punish it because he was frustrated and angry. That poor dog, Shooter, howled and ran under the pickup truck and would not come out all day.Idiot neighbor was upset that he hurt his dog – but this is a typical misuse of a training device. PLEASE READ ABOUT HOW TO USE THESE DEVICES!Back to my Russian Wolfhound! He will fearlessly take on a coyote alone and drive the predator mad with the speed and agility of this breed. Nothing can catch a wolfhound unless it wants to be caught. Fun. Big fun night time chase coyotes to teach them to clear out of our neighborhood – my sheep ranch. BUT! Said wolfhound loves to herd sheep at stampede speeds that endanger the newborns, etc.One of my adult ewes was killed by a wolfhound. Now that is where I train – aversion training – not to chase the sheep. Yell – “HEY! No chase sheep!” – if the dog does not stop then give it the lowest shock level to get the dog’s attention. DO NOT HURT THE DOG BECAUSE YOU ARE ANGRY! Just use enough energy to get across the idea that this is unwanted behavior.NEVER USE A SHOCK COLLAR WITHOUT FIRST TESTING IT ON YOURSELF! What is wrong with people? Lay the device on your forearm. The contacts are touching your skin. Try the lowest level – feel anything? Increase one level until you feel the tingling. It is not a hurtful, scary shock. It feels like tingles. Yet that is enough to make some dogs cry out in a yelp.Put is on the dog. At the lowest level of stimulation look for an eye blink, an ear twitch, etc. They feel it but it is only scary to a dog because they don’t know what it is, or how to stop it. Anyone who will not test the shock first on their arm should never own an E-collar.Dogs are an endless source of positivity, joy, fun, and the most loyal companion you can have. I own a German Shepherd Service Dog who shops Costco with me every week and has not worn a leash in 5 years – shopping. When I used an e-collar on him he hated it so much he told me “Please don’t use this thing. I will always come when you call me, I will not chase cats, I promise – just don’t use this on me again.” And he kept his word.Use vibrate! Give the dog time to think about the vibrate as you call in your happy voice – “(dog’s name) Come! Come here!” and if they don’t then and only then give a light level of shock. The second your dog start to come towards you praise the dog in your happy voice -“Yes! Good boy! Yes!Come! Oh, good boy!” And give a warm pat & pet when they are by your side.This is a training device – not a punishment tool when you get frustrated and angry. Do that and your relationship with that dog will really go to hell. Don’t do it. Dogs depend on us to understand how to live in our world. Help them learn. Never hurt them.Love…I have 5 big working dogs that love me as much as I love them.

    We had the previous model of this collar, and still do for our older dog, but needed this for our 112lb great pyr. We have used dogtra for six years and took our forementioned dog through obediance training with the older model. Dogtra has definitely made some great changes for this particular model and it does not disappoint. It’s fully manual, has great controls, quick to respond and battery life is great. This product price can be high, but you won’t find a more user friendly and precise training collar that compares. I always recommend this to friends and family! Both dogs are fully trained to respond appropriately to the collar with, more often than not, just the vibration setting.

    This is such a great tool, we use it on our young stubborn jerk of a Doberman and he’s a gentleman with it on. HOWEVER, it is not easy to use it if you don’t know what you’re doing. You really need someone to interact with you and your dog because no dog responds the same, so Youtube videos are useless – I had a trainer teach me how to use this. I would not recommend buying this otherwise as you’d risk traumatizing your dog. Word to the wise: less is more with this thing, and also hide the remote from your husband because he probably can’t be trusted. (I have confirmed I’m not the only one with this problem). It is not a “shock” collar, it’s more of a vibration or like a static feeling. It is unpleasant but definitely not painful. It’s also waterproof, we’ve used it at the dog beach many times. The ecollar was our last resort after trying several types of prong and other collars, and it did the trick on teaching recall and “quiet”. Currently training off leash and so far so good.

    We are using these on two GSDs, one 7 month old pup and a 4 year old female.The range is more than adequate and the fact that you can recharge them versus buying new batteries is awesome.If you are not familiar with e-collars PLEASE do your homework on them. Improper use can really screw a dog up, as well as injure them.These collars are super durable and the remote is easy to use.Don’t be discouraged by the cost. You get what you pay for with e-collars.

    This collar is great…when it works. Within 3 months, the collar stopped working. I sent it in for a warranty repair and they gladly took it. They sent it back after 2 weeks of having it only to open the box and find it not working at all. I am sad because this collar was great but spending $220 on a collar that lasts for 3 months, not worth it.

  17. (verified owner)

    I have a working line German Shepherd. We do some Schutzhund/IPO training. I bought this because he needs a little reminder sometimes of the rules. He’s very smart but I can’t bring treats with me everywhere (he’s food motivated) so this has been an immense help with training. He doesn’t need much of a zap and he understood quickly what the nick meant. I would never recommend this for sensitive dogs or smaller dogs but for larger and more “hardy or stubborn” dogs it’s a godsend. Do not use this on dogs who don’t know what the rules are. This is great for a nudge to remind the ones who do know but like to test limits.

    I used the previous version of these collars and loved them. They lasted 3.5 bullmastiff rough and tumbling years before it died.I replaced it with this set and less than a week after I got them they stopped working. So disappointed… I got a replacement is hoping it was just a glitch because I can’t live without them!

    This is review for this product from Amazon, not for the Dogtra brand product in general.I don’t think this is the genuine Dogtra product. I have had a dogtra collar before, and it was reliable and worked great, which is why I decided to purchase another one for my new dog. This collar continued to sent stim even after all buttons are released and controller turned off. If anything, it caused negative effect on my poor little dog.Returned the product, and purchased the same collar from Dogtra official site. Everything is great now!

    I had never heard of Dogtra, but two months in, Very satisfied with the collars. I looked at some that were significantly less expensive, but one review in particular scared me; the owner reported it burned the dog. Frightening! I use this unit on our four month old lab puppies. I would no sooner endanger them, than I would our children.I previously had a Tri-Tronics unit, and loved it. They have been purchased by Garmin. But, for my purposes, their two collar units were unjustifiably more expensive. I’m not a hunter, and just primarily use the collar to keep them safe (obedience), by ensuring they come when I say!If you’ve never used a shock collar before, they are wonderful. It enables our family to go hiking with the pups off leash, roam our acreage, etc. We always maintain supervision, but it enables them to run and play. Yet, ensures they come when called, or stay at Heel. Even if there is a deer, cat, bird, or human that runs right by them.As a further aside, one puppy has only had to be shocked once (no kidding, he gets it!), and just occasionally requires the page/vibrate to remind him. His brother is a little more stubborn, and has been shocked a handful of times, and routinely gets vibrated:) But, it magically makes the dog come back every time! Please don’t misunderstand, you must do the work, i.e., training obedience commands, before you introduce a collar!! The collar doesn’t teach, it just reinforces what they already know.Back to the product itself, love the physical size of the handheld remote unit. And the 1-99 range for intensity of shock. I put the collar on myself, at 25 – 30 it’s slightly less intense than a shock from a 9 volt battery. That range is the level required for the stubborn puppy to respond. The more reasonable puppy has only been shocked at 21, yes, just once.The collars themselves are a good size, not too big, and seem to take a fair amount of abuse inflicted by two wrestling puppies.UPDATE March 2019:Having used the collars everyday for 15 months, I have zero complaints! They have worked flawlessly! No maintenance of any kind. All I have done is charge them.

  21. (verified owner)

    I am very happy with this purchase. It ranges in intensity from 1 to 127. I use it at 33 on my Great Dane and get amazing results. I’ve never had to use a higher setting, but I’m confident the higher settings would work on even the most stubborn dog. The collar is big enough for the largest dog. The shocking module is substantial and might be too heavy for very small dogs. Both the transmitter and the receiver hold a charge well. I use it every day and charge them once a week.

  22. (verified owner)

    The shock feature failed within 6 months, and I can’t even talk to amazon about a replacement. I will never buy this product again and certainly not from Amazon. This is my first truly bad experience here

    I have 2 of these collars for my 2 German Shepherds. I don’t have to go over 6 or 7 out of the 100 levels. Very consistent product, no delays on the Stim, have used in water countless times and it works great. DO NOT GO CHEAP ON AN E-COLLAR! You can end up really doing more harm if you do. Also, LEARN TO USE THE E-COLLAR FIRST BEFORE EVEN BUYING ONE. These tools truly are a PRIVELEDGE for us to use CORRECTLY and there are way too many people buying them and not knowing how to use them so they end up hurting their dogs or breaking a dogs spirit. Read some books or watch many trainer videos acclaimed and accomplished trainers or even go to the many dog training schools and learn hands on. 1 YouTube video does not constitute you a trainer.

    Love this system! I previously had a 2 dog collar system but was constantly zapping the wrong dog, therfore training was skewed! It was confusing on how the monitor showed vs the collar. With this Dogtra color coordinated collar and button on the remote I have been able to command and control properly without hesitation and confusion as to what dog I am concerning myself with. Also, the battery on the remote and collars are long lasting and easy to tell if charging is needed. No guessing. Well worth the purchase price!

  25. (verified owner)

    BEST TOOL EVER!, nothing stops this device. Stays charged for like 4 days, 8 hours a day working. stimulus at 1 you cant even feel, and at 127 is so intense I havnt met a dog that wouldn’t stop what it was doing when you use it! (NEVER HAD TO GO THAT HIGH 🙂 ). This thing is water proof, i leave it on my dog during water rescue and swimming training and even use it in the water. THIS thing works like a tank, no stopping it, until you need to charge it. It signals needing a charge with the remote, flashes green, then yellow then red, have never had it die on me, and im harsh on devices. THE ONLY PROBLEM, which isn’t a big issue to me, but may be to some, that can be fixed, is the dial can sometimes increase or decrease on its own. I SUSPECT the transmitter remote may not be COMPLETELY intrinsic, but the collar sure is!!

    I wanted a nice correction collar for my Goldendodle. I looked at others less expensive. After reading reviews set my price ceiling higher for better unit. Hands down this unit is worth every dollar. Top quality and most important, it works everytime. Within a week and very few corrections, my doodle is a pleasure to be around even at 7 months. They are very quick learners with this unit.

    Best training supplier on the market for distance and price. I had one and got another dog so got another Dogtra. It comes with a great little carrying case that holds all the gear. It makes it easy to keep me organized. The greatest thing about these is that they are waterproof and everything can be replaced – collars, battery, etc. We are hard on these and this second one will get equal time on the dog. I’ve had to buy a new collar but nothing else so far. However, I had the first one for 2 years before the collar needed replacing. These are worth the money. There are other brands and I researched them ALL. I use them daily and charge them at night. They have several great features including the nick and the “reminder” as we call it. It’s just like a vibration which is what I use mostly unless it’s a serious situation that could cause harm to my dogs.

    A year ago, I adopted a Redbone Coohhound; a dog with an incredibly affectionate demeanor, fun to be with and overall a great choice; however, he is also stubborn, single-minded – and chases down scents – and squirrels regularly. I am retired and walk with him – 5 – 6 miles a day, and from the moment I got him, he was pulling on the leash 100% of the time. I went through 4 trainers before I found one that could help me make a difference with his behavior, but in spite of tremendous effort, his recall was still terrible and his overall behavior and response to basic commands was hit and miss at best. I’ve read books on dog training, watched videos on YouTube and was really committed to the idea that e- collars were an in humane training tool – and that as so many people these days seem to say – the only way to go is with positive techniques. About a month ago, I hit the wall; my dog and I crossed our first anniversary together and while I was visiting friends, someone inadvertantly let him out of the house; he bolted down the street and I only got him back after someone almost a mile away caught him in their front yard. Clearly, the behavior is an issue, but I’ve always known that he could easily get hit by a car if he gets loose as he has no traffic awareness. After discussing this with our trainer, we decided to get the Dogtra collar. At first, he was confused by the sensation, but literally in two weeks of daily training his behavior has transformed overnight. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sensation (and yes, I’ve used it on myself) at his working level (about 35) is more of an attention-getter than a painful shock; we are at the point where he comes to me 100% of the time when called, and after only a few weeks, I rarely need to get his attention with the collar. This week was a major breakthrough for us as for the first time, I was able to work with him completely off leash in a public park without any concern about him running, he is heeling at my knee 90% of the time and we are now working on advanced commands. He is a super happy guy – and this has actually improved our relationship as I am way more relaxed walking him not having to fight his pulling, risk of bolting if I lose control. He has more freedom in that we can go to off leash parks, and I am enjoying my time with him more and more. Six months ago, I was doubting whether could keep him and now, I’m thrilled that I hung in there with him. I know that many dogs can be successfully trained without an e-collar; our trainer has told me my dog is the most stubborn dog she’s worked with in her 12 years of training – and she couldn’t be more impressed with the amazing progress in such a short time.

    Has tamed a very hyper wild Lap pup and whipped her into hunting shape and made her a better citizen inside the home. She just happens to be exceedingly smart, stubborn, curious, and sometimes out of control. After 2 months now, and only a few zaps, she performs her drills & is calmer just with the collar on her, with no stinging anymore. Works so good, I can put a dummy collar on her in the house, and show her the TV black remote, and she lays those ears back & goes right to her bed and lays down. Hilarious, but it works ! She will be ready to hunt ducks in the winter.

    WOW! While I am being very careful not to overuse this, it makes a difference on an icy walk way to be able to control my dogs who together outweigh me. I consider it a safety MUST-HAVE for my big big dogs that were only supposed to grow to 50 pounds walking small owners like myself. I cant have my 120# dog knocking over little old lady neighbors, can I? And this version works GREAT.

    I would not want to attempt to train a dog without this collar because this works so well. I started out at a very low setting and very seldom had to raise it higher. You’ll have those moments like when your dog is chasing a small animal (cat maybe) and they are too excited to obey. Otherwise just a small “nick” gets their attention when they misbehave. This is an expensive training aid but just consider how much damage an untrained do can do in just a few hours. DO NOT buy those cheap under $50 devices – they are dangerous and undependable. I tried one of those cheap brands and sent it back to Amazon the next day. (me loves Amazon) The quality of this Dogtra brand is excellent. I’m a fussy customer and I am very impressed after using it for 4 months. I can’t think of a single complaint with the design or function. That’s pretty unusual these days – you may agree.

    My German Sheppard and I are currently going thru behavior modification classes. The trainer & most of the other students have this unit and recommended it to me to assist in the modification process.This unit has multiple control settings (nick) 0-127, a constant (12 second) and a vibrate (pager) mode. The units (transmitter & collar) come in a plastic carry with a neck lanyard, a belt clip, a y-splitter fro charging, user manual and a test light. I have found it very easy to use and the quality is outstanding.

    The collar worked great for about a week. Now it won’t turn on and neither will the controller. Its fully charged but still says off and flashes and shuts off when I turn it on and then press any button. I’m hoping to get someone attention because I can’t find where to speak to Amazon or the seller about those product and its issues.

    Absolutely top notch. We have an extremely smart dog who’s new to the family. She knows all her commands but being young, she has quite the “selective hearing problem”, particularly when in high stimulus situations (dog park, smelling something awesome, etc.). Enter the Dogra e-collar … This thing transformed our life and our dogs life the second we put it on! Now don’t get me wrong…(1) you have to know what you’re doing and how to use it, and (2) one day doesn’t mean she’s trained yet… That takes work. Daily work. But we do have a very effective and useful tool in our arsenal and she is responding exceptionally well to the stimulous. The key here folks is do your homework, and BE KIND! This is not a tool to shock the crap out of your dog in anger, or to punish with zero form of positive reinforcement for good behavior. In fact, from the second we put it on I would say that over 90% of what we’ve used when training has been the “pager function”. This is basically a vibration and has nothing to do with an electrical impulse. Think of it as putting your mobile phone to your neck when it’s set to vibrate. Nothing more. Can I nick her with an electrical charge? Sure. But why would I if I don’t have to? And even when it IS warranted I use the lowest possible setting to get her attention. Which brings me to my final point… Don’t put anything on your dog that you wouldn’t try on yourself first. I tested the electical impulses myself and found that I felt nothing until around “20” (on the rheost setting) and noted that different places on my skin were more sensitive than others which makes perfect sense. Your underside of your arm is going to feel it more than the palm of your hand with all that padding and desensized thick skin that gets used day in and day out. The lesson? Your dogs neck is sensitive so be kind and don’t just come out of the gate swinging with electicity flying. He/she wants to do the best they can for you. Give them a chance to surprise you. Ours sure did!Additional notes: High quality and durable, great range, and way better than the cheap units most of the big brand pet stores sell. Spend the money to have something that works and lasts.

    These collars are the fourth attempt at electronic collars. The previous ones all had issues with durability, charge hold, intensity, etc. I have two large dogs and I needed something that can handle two dogs playing rough with each other and could deliver enough shock to get their attention. These collars are way outperforming any previous collars I had. They come in their own case and have great presentation and easy to understand manual for use. My dogs only took about 30 minutes to get use to the “nic” feature which is much more humane as opposed to the constant shock every time. However, the constant feature works very well. I have one German shorthair that is very prey driven and would take off after anything that crossed her path. This is no longer an issue with her after a couple times being stimulated. The charge lasts about 5 days for the collars and about 10-14 days for the remote. I highly recommend this product is is definitely well worth the money you spend on it.

    It’s been two years since I bought this e-collar, so it’s been put the test both in training, hiking trips, and upland bird hunting. Needless to say it’s stood the test of time. They say it’s water resistant, that’s correct, they say it holds a charge for 4 days, that’s also correct, and if their is any issue the customer service is helpful with troubleshooting.To give you an idea of how often I use it and how much abuse this collar can take. My dog is a 70lbs Bluetick Coonhound who loves to: run into brush, hiking way ahead of me, hunt birds, runs through and into things on occasion, and track. The collar take a licking and keeps on ticking. My dog once smacked it against a tree, which made a huge crack noise. First concern was the dog than I check the collar. Not a scratch on it.The range of stimulation is great 127, the vibration works wonders, the charging abilities are great, and it hugs my dogs neck perfectly so it won’t snag any twigs.After two years the batter life kinda fades, so I may just replace the batteries.

    I have had other brand e collars. These are different. The stimulation is different and the levels are so adjustable. You can turn the stim level way down so the dog can barely feel it but he is aware of your stimulation. It’s amazing how well they work without the obvious distress you notice with other e collars. They are an extension of your leash and sometimes much more effective if you’re working with dog that has been stressed by rough leash corrections.

    Worked as expected and was easy to use (very important!). Battery life is quite good if you remember to turn it off when not in use. It lasts all day and evening when in use, and into the next day.Our dog (140 pound Rottweiler) was leash aggressive and hard to control. This device didn’t hurt him (tested on my own arm for tolerance) but got his attention. The vibrate was his “shock” and the actual jolts kept as low as possible just to get his attention.PLEASE learn to use these devices properly (proper use, not just the function of the device) before using on a dog. It’s NOT meant to punish/hurt the dog! It’s to get their attention so you can use voice commands (the goal!) to get them to obey.Four rather than 5 stars only because the fit was tricky due to the thickness of the device vs the collar itself. It was hard to get it tight enough to keep solid contact but not so tight it would choke him. We settled for a bit of “slip” and stopped to adjust the position of the device (so it wasn’t on the front of his throat or on his spine) rather than so tight he couldn’t breathe but the device would stay on the side of his neck.

    We purchased a DOGTRA collar in May of 2017 for 283.00. We had to return it for repair in November of 2018 at the cost of 81.52 and endured the delay of returning it to California until repair was complete and thereby returned to us which was several weeks. Today, in January of 2018, the collar is again not working properly. Disappointed in this product especially since we haven’t the need to use on a daily basis. We have have utilized it a few times since it was apparently repaired.

    We have used Dogtra collars in the past and had great results. Unfortunately, this time we received a defective product that renders the collars dangerous.The knob that controls the intensity does not stay at one setting/number. It bounces up and down wildly from 7 to 80 to 20 to 49 etc — all while turning the knob extremely slowly, in either direction. And sometimes when not touching the knob at all. There is no rhyme or reason to the intensity number the Dogtra sets itself on at any given moment, and there is no way to control it.It worked fine for a few weeks but now is dangerous and useless. Because we have passed the return window we are stuck with an expensive, dangerous product. BEWARE.

    We have an English Mastiff and this both FITS on her very large neck and WORKS on her very stubborn attitude. It is a great tool and although we didn’t want to have to resort to this, we found this one to be the most modifiable in terms of size of shock and vibration. Very nice.

    I ordered this for my willful 2-year old male German Shepherd! This product has great reviews, I purchased it on the recommendation of another dog owner in my Schutzhund club. ONLY heard GOOD things. The reason I returned this in favor of another brand was simply the size of the receiver. My dogs wear electric fence receivers that work great. Since they are already used to that collar, I purchased an ecollar from the same company that is nearly identical in size (smaller). This receiver is rather bulky/heavy.Definitely think this would have been a great product, just wanted to keep the process as seamless for my dogs as possible.

    My husband and I absolutely love these collars!! We have two 100 lb dogs and we trained them from the beginning to obey off leash. Our backyard doesn’t have a fence right now, so even though we have a couple acres, they go play outside while we watch them from the window inside; as soon as one misbehaves (they’re still young and crazy) we vibrate it and they’re learned what comes after so they generally just come running back to us to make sure everything is ok. The battery life is great! We went camping for a few days, dogs had them on as they were off leash the whole time, and the collars were a life saver and a peace of mind for me.We even take them to the beach and they run and splash in the water and the collars never falter.I think we’ve had them for about a year now and still going strong!

    Second time buying dogtra ecollar. The first one I got had a lot of issues (dogtra ended up replacing the motherboard). Now I have two dogs and this makes life easier- less barking, less pulling and just all around easier response when working with two high energy, drivey dogs at once. I can now run with both dogs (whose combined weight is more than me) at my side.The battery in one collar does seem a bit wonky and the nick does not seem to always work, but it’s still better than the old one.I do wish these came with a set of extra long contacts, though, as both my dogs have very thick fur around their neck and I don’t like having to make the collar really tight just to get contact.

    I love this collar. If you did what I did and bought the $40 training collar, and you have a large dog (Roy is 75lbs) then you probably have the same problem, which is that the dog couldn’t care less about that wimpy collar ‘shock’ when they are amped up and doing the stuff you don’t want them to do. This Dogtra collar is the cat’s ass and I haven’t had to go above 45 on the scale of 0-127 to get him to stop immediately. More importantly, he is more responsive to the vibration now, because he knows what is next and I have to use the actual ‘stimulation’ less than before. Well worth the money.

    Bought this collar at the advice of our dog trainer. Used lightly at home to reinforce training. Just over a year later, noticed that the handset dial was unreliable – varying from 0 to 37 at the 0 position. We were using almost exclusively on pager mode but wanted the option of nick to discourage him from pulling us to chase squirrels. Customer service told us it was still under warranty so I paid to send back for repair. Was shocked to find out that they recommended not only fixing the volume dial but replacing the battery and the antenna (no problems had been noted in these) at an estimated cost of over $60. Also informed that none of the repairs were under warranty as the 2-year warranty apparently only covers the motherboard. I started to tell the customer service rep that I hadn’t had any trouble with the battery or the antenna and he cut me off and asked if I wanted them to send back the unit without repairs. Will never buy another Dogtra as this company obviously does not believe in customer service.

    I was hopeful at first. I opened it and charged both the remote and the collar. I unplugged them and started working with my Irish Setter. She seemed to respond well to it while training, for about 30 minutes. I had it set at 18 just to reinforce basic commands on the leash. I noticed after about two days that she wasn’t responding and it was already blinking red. I recharged it and by the end of that day it was blinking red, again. The next time I charged it overnight and it did hold the charge through the next two days….but then blinked red again. I charged the collar about 10 times in the 25 days I was using it. The remote I only had to charge twice. I really only issued corrections with it about 5-10 times a day at most. I turned it off when not on her.I am disappointed because within the small window of functionality it had while maintaining a charge, it did seem effective. If it had been more dependable I imagine it would have been a nice training aid. But I had put her in situations to be able to use it and reinforce commands and it wouldn’t work….because battery had died. So then she was pretty satisfied that she was getting away with some behaviours that were beyond my immediate reach to discourage….EXACTLY when you need an e-collar.I guess I’ll try another brand.

    Have a 16 month old Blue Heeler who works cattle everyday but as he got to about 14 months he didn’t want to come back after he’d done his job. He’d act like he couldn’t hear you plus he started barking at everything when he road in the back of the truck, bed or backseat. Car, dog, cow, squirrel, cat, person, deer it didn’t matter to him but boy was it loud and annoying. We had him wear the collar around for 2 weeks during the day for various lengths of time without using any features then my husband worked him in the yard for a few minutes and it took quite a high level to get even a move but we don’t think that there was good contact because when he worked with cows just a few quick bursts and the dog said ok I’m yours. Few weeks of this and now you usually just have to put it on him and he obeys no problem with no correction with remote. I was a doubter but now I believe if you are trained to use them and you train your dog first and use this as a last resort then it’s a great tool.

    Not sure on water resistance because we never use it when he’s wet. Long battery life. Easy to use, charge. Best product. Extremely effective. We only need to use the vibrate option 99% of the time. The “nick” option is great for when vibrate doesn’t work. Just gives a quick jolt to change that mind set. Our dogs don’t get along and this collar has saved our dogs.

    This product is worth the money. It comes in a nice case and very easy to charge. 2 hour quick charge is great. For 1 year old German Shepard. Had a cheaper brand before and it failed after a few months. A Training collar on your loved pet, is worth more then a cheap brand that will fail. You always want to know your dog is respectful and close. Buy a well know brand.
