Dogtra 200C Compact 1/2 Mile Remote Trainer

Standard

Dogtra 200C

Many people own small dogs or hate the look of a big clunky box on their dog’s collar.  The Dogtra 200C is designed as an ultra compact remote trainer so your dog doesn’t have that large box screaming “look at me I’m wearing a shock collar!”.  The Dogtra 200C is a compact remote trainer with a range of up to 1/2 mile. Everyone wants a lightweight, ubiquitous collar for their dog, and the Dogtra 200C and 202C fit this bill. With its small size, the collar can be worn on a dog as small as 10 pounds. It is also an excellent choice for larger dogs, but won’t be as noticeable on your dog as some of the older models of remote trainers.

The remote handheld transmitter can be used with one hand so that you can keep your other hand free. Precise stimulation levels from 0-100 will help you find the perfect level for your dog’s temperament. It is a low to medium-powered trainer, and most dogs will respect the intensity.  The 1/2 mile range is ample for training purposes and hunting with your dog.

Dogtra 200C is a 1-dog system that is compact enough for dogs as small as 10 pounds, with a range of up to 1/2 mile.

Precise Stimulation Levels with Dogtra 200C

The Dogtra 200C has precise stimulation levels from 0 – 100 so that you can fine tune the intensity level to match the temperament of your dog. The gradual intensity levels of Nick and Continuous Stimulation can be quickly adjusted with just one hand. The dial is at the top of remote handheld so that you can adjust intensity if needed. When a dog is working one-on-one with you, they will most likely respond to a milder intensity level compared to a situation with distractions; i.e., a passing dog or cat, something to chase, children playing, etc.

When starting to train your dog, enforce your commands with the lowest stimulation to get his attention. Reinforce his commands on your own property before you introduce distractions.

The Dogtra 200C also features Non-stimulating Pager (vibration) to give you additional options when working with your dog.

The new Dogtra 200C (1-dog system) and Dogtra 202C (2-dog system) are available for purchase online at ShopForPuppy.com.  As always, a portion from each sale will be donated to Rescue and helping dogs in need.

Dogtra 1900S – High-Output e-Collar

Standard

The Dogtra 1900S is a versatile e-collar made for pet, K9 and sport dog training where high output is required.  It is replacing the much-loved 1900NCP with some added new features.

With low to high power, it is versatile for soft dogs as well as stubborn dogs.   The 3/4-mile range allows you to cover more distance when you need it.  The rapid charge batteries take only 2 hours to recharge, so you can get back out and training quickly.

The set is fully waterproof.  The LCD on the handheld remote transmitter displays both the battery life and stimulation level.  The 1900S is a high-powered unit, and it includes a non-stimulating High Performance Pager.

The 1900S is also available as a 2-dog system to handle up to two dogs with the same transmitter.  The 2-dog Dogtra 1902S comes with two e-collars so you are set to train two dogs out of the box.

Dogtra 282C

Standard

Dogtra 282C – Compact 2-Dog Electronic Collar

The Dogtra 282C was released by Dogtra in the Fall of 2015.  It is a compact electronic collar that is 28% smaller than the standard-sized Dogtra collars.  It can be used on dogs as small as 10 pounds.  With a low/medium output, it is a good choice for dogs that have an easygoing disposition.

Dogtra-282C-cr

Just because the Transmitter (remote handheld) and Receiver Collars are smaller than other e-collars, doesn’t mean that they have less powerful features.  The Dogtra 280C (one-dog system) and Dogtra 282C (two-dog system) both have a 1/2 mile range and 0 – 127 levels of stimulation.  Both are fully waterproof, rugged and durable.  Rapid charge Lithium Polymer batteries charge in just two hours, so you can get back out with your dogs quickly.

The 282C comes with Nick and Constant stimulation modes, along with a non-stimulating High Performance Pager. The handheld transmitter and receiver/collars features 2-hour rapid charge batteries, along with a ½-mile range. The LCD on the transmitter displays the remaining battery life and the exact level of stimulation output.  The LCD is designed for low light conditions, and can easiily be seen in the dark.

Dogtra-282C-LCD

If you only need a system for one dog, consider the Dogtra 280C.  Just note that the 280C is not expandable.  If you need to manage two dogs at the same time, the Dogtra 282C will fit your purposes.  It includes the Transmitter (Remote Handheld) and two Receiver Colllars so that you can manage two dogs out of the box.

The Dogtra 280C and the Dogtra 282C can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com.  For a limited time, we are offering a Coupon Code for a discount.  Type in the Coupon CodeBlog-282C” for the 282C, and “Blog-280C” for the 280C.  As always, a portion of the revenue from each sale will be donated to Rescue.  Happy training!

Dogtra 280C – Compact Remote Dog Trainer

Standard

Dogtra 280C

Dogtra just released its newest electronic collars for Fall 2015!  The Dogtra 280C (one-dog system) and the Dogtra 282C (two-dog system) are compact collars that can fit smaller dogs.  They are designed with low/medium output so they are suitable for dogs that have an easy-going disposition.  We will focus this discussion on the Dogtra 280C, which is a one-dog system.

Dogtra-280c-Electronic-Collar

The Dogtra 280C electronic collar is a compact one-dog system with a range of up to 1/2 mile

The Dogtra 280C is 28% smaller than the standard-sized Dogtra electronic collars.  It is more comfortable for smaller dogs, and is less unsightly when out in public.

Comparison-of-size-of-Dogtra-280C-caption

The Dogtra 280C and 282C electronic collars are 28% smaller than standard-sized Dogtra collars

Both the Dogtra 280C and 282C have a range of up to 1/2 mile, so these are serious trainers that will deliver when needed. Dogtra is well known for its high quality e-collars and the Dogtra 280 Series delivers on that reputation for excellence.

The 280C comes with Nick and Constant stimulation modes, along with a non-stimulating High-Performance Pager.  Once your dog learns how to respond to a remote trainer, often the Pager will be enough to get his attention.  With precise stimulation levels from 0 – 127, you are sure to find the correct stimulation level that will get your dog’s attention.  Precise stimulation levels are important because it is best to use the lowest level stimulation that will give you the response that you need.  The handheld transmitter and receiver/collar features 2-hour rapid charge batteries so that you can get back out with your dog quickly.  The set is fully waterproof, so there is no need to worry if your dog jumps into a stream or you are out in rainy weather conditions.

The transmitter (handheld) has an easy-to-read LCD.  The LCD screen displays the remaining battery life and the exact level of stimulation output even in dark or low light conditions.  If you are out hiking and get caught out after dark, you can be assured you still have control of your dog.

Dogtra 1900S Remote Dog Trainer

Dogtra 1900S Remote Dog Trainer (single dog system)

The Dogtra 1900S is Dogtra’s newest system for remote dog training.  The receiver is ergonomically designed to fit flat against your dog’s neck like the popular Dogtra ARC, but as a higher output version.  The 1900S (single dog system) and the 1902S (two dog system) lay flat against your dog’s neck, and both models have a waterproof transmitter and receiver.

Another nice updated feature is that both styles have On/Off buttons in place of the red magnet.  If you have used any of the older style Dogtra remote collars, you will understand the comment about the red magnet!  If not, be assured that the On/Off button is somewhat simpler to use.

Charging time is 2 hours, so you can quickly get out in the field with your dog when needed.  A range of 3/4 mile is plenty for training most dogs.  With its smaller receiver that is less obtrusive, this system will be one you will enjoy using time and time again.

The Dogtra 1900S (single dog system) and Dogtra 1902S (two dog system) are in stock and ready to ship immediately. We expect these to be another hot seller from Dogtra!

How to Use Dogtra ARC e-Collar

Standard

How to Use the Dogtra ARC

I found this short video on how to use the Dogtra ARC e-collar.  Since it is one of the most popular remote trainers at our store, I thought some people might be interested in seeing how easy and functional the collar is to use.  The Dogtra ARC is expandable to two dogs, and the remote handheld is very intuitive so that it is easy to distinguish between each dog.

The video is courtesy of Take The Lead Dog Training.  It shows you how to operate the collar, but it is highly recommended that you consult with a professional trainer before using the tool.  Take the Lead Dog Training offers Skype training lessons on how to make sure your dog has a good experience with a remote trainer.

The Dogtra ARC is one of our best sellers, as the collar is ergonomically designed to fit the neck of your dog.  The trainer lies flat against your dog’s neck.

StarWalk iQ Dog Activity Tracker

Standard

StarWalk iQ Pet Activity Tracker lets you track the activities of your dog so that you have an idea of whether he is getting enough exercise.  It also serves as an active lifestyle monitor for pets, and has a host of other neat features to help you keep your pet in top physical condition!  It interacts with your Smartphone by using Bluetooth technology.

The StarWalk iQ is also waterproof, so you and your pet can enjoy playful romps at the beach, or during work near creeks, streams or lakes.

We think StarWalk iQ Dog Activity Tracker will provide much-needed information regarding your dog’s activity levels, and you can have fun with it!  You might be surprised at how much you can learn.

Dogtra ARC – Reliability Tests

Standard

Dogtra put their Dogtra ARC e-collar through the ultimate test — an ice bucket challenge, and then followed it up with a test in boiling water.  Most e-collars will not need to go through this type of stringent testing, but it will give you a good idea of the reliability of Dogtra e-collars in all types of weather conditions, heat, cold and humidity.  The information on this post is courtesy of Dogtra, but I thought it was important enough to share.

Dogtra ARC – Ice Bucket Challenge

Dogtra ARC Reliability Waterproof

The Dogtra ARC was submersed in icy water for 30 minutes, and the unit worked after it was removed.

Dogtra ARC – Hot Water Test

Dogtra ARC - Hot Water Test Waterproof

Ten minutes after the cold water test, the ARC was put into 100 degree water for 20 minutes.  When it was removed from the hot water, it was powered on and worked fine!

Now that is a pretty good testimony that the Dogtra ARC is waterproof and should stand up to inclement weather conditions when in use on your dog.  To read the full results of the test, visit Dogtra ARC Testing.  The Dogtra ARC can be purchased online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion of all revenue is donated to Rescues and Shelters, and helping dogs in need.
