Do you have a new dog? If so, your new dog will probably need some training. In the case of working dogs or hunting dogs, training is especially essential. For the welfare of both you and your dog, you’ll need to find a safe, effective method of training.
The Dogtra Training Collar is probably the answer, as it has been for many hunting and sporting dog owners. This is one of the leading brands of dog training collars—and for good reason. These collars have some great features, including:
Safety Features: Your dog can’t be harmed with jolts at higher levels because the collar will not allow long stimulations for more than safely allowable.
Waterproof: these collars are completely waterproof and work just as well wet as they do dry. Important if your dog is a water dog, such as a retriever.
Controlled Stimulation: You can control the type of stimulation your dog should receive. It is up to you whether your dog needs a gentle reminder or a larger impact for his behavior.
Pager: you can also use the device to teach your dog to respond (or give him a “heads up”) without using the static stimulation.
Many believe that static collars (often incorrectly called “shock” or “stun” collars) are inhumane. Anyone who has used one, or who cares enough about their dog to test one, knows that this is completely untrue. These are veterinarian-approved collars that are safe, effective, and probably the most humane way to teach a dog. No choking, collar yanking, emotional outbreaks (yelling/screaming) are required for these collars to work effectively. The secret to the success of these collars is not the “shock” they deliver, but the surprise that the static gives to the dog, startling him out of his bad behavior.
Some of the Dogtra Dog Training Collar models that are available now are:
Dogtra 200NCP Gold Dog Training Collar
The Dogtra 200NCP Gold Dog Training Collar is perfect for a small or medium sized dog that is typically less than one half mile from you when you’re attempting your training. This unit provides a lightweight collar for your dog as well as a lightweight transmitter for your use. You control when the collar is activated for training purposes using the transmitter. This is the ideal unit for those who are hunting since it provides such a wide range (880 yards) and trying to teach the pet acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
Dogtra 175NCP Dog Training Collar
This is Dogra’s top of the line unit, the Dogtra 174NCP is waterproof and works up to 400 yards away. While not perfect for hunters or longer-range trainers (scent dogs, flushers, etc.), this unit is perfect for the family pet and closer-to-home dog that doesn’t tend to wander far.
The Dogtra Dog Training Collars are a safe and effective method of training your dog – whether you’re training your new hunting dog or your new family pet. The added safety features mean that your dog will never be harmed by the electronic jolt that he receives during the training process.
