    GREAT New Collar from Dogtra!, May 22, 2011

    I had purchased the 280NCP at the recommendation of our trainer for our Australian Shepherd. We used it for 6 weeks and loved it. Once we were “all” trained on how to use it, we saw amazing results. Unfortunately, my husband lost the transmitter. Not sure how — maybe it will turn up, but we needed another collar (did not want to “loose” all of the great results from training). I was not happy about spending ANOTHER $230 on a collar, and came across this IQ by Dogtra. A few of the features that I did not particularly like on the transmitter for the 280 are different on the IQ, making it much easier for me to use with one hand (having the stimulation dial on then top and having the buttons on the sides for example). The receiver is much smaller in size, but the contact points are the same (my dog is only 40 lbs, and the smaller receiver is much better!). The range is less, but the chances of her more being 400 yards (4 football fields) away are extremely slim. The other great thing is the 2 hour charge vs. 12 – 14 hours on the 280. I will tell you, this is an absolutely amazing collar, and as far as training, does exactly the same as the more expensive 280. I am so happy that Dogtra came out with an excellent collar at a lower price point. Unless you are training dogs to hunt or need ranges so far away you can’t see your pet, this is a perfect collar and I highly recommend it~

    I ordered a pet smart electronic collar for smaller dogs with 100 yard range. I used it for one day and it quit working. I sent it back and did some more research and found Dogtra. I got the new IQ collar that is made for smaller dogs. This collar is ten times the collar of that pet smart. In the long run I will save money because it is RECHARGEABLE unlike the pet smart. It isn’t worth buying one that isn’t. Anyway, all the electronic collars you will find when you search for them are the mainstream one’s that are sold at most department stores and pet stores and they are marketed all over the internet. THEY ARE GARBAGE. Go to […] and you will see how much better this product is. 400 yard range, rechargeable, reliable, waterproof. When I pulled it out of the package you could tell just by looking at it how much better quality the product is. This is the way to go. Even though there are good reviews on the pet smart type products, just read how many bad reviews there are.

    My dog is crazy fast (part italian greyhound). When she takes off all she is thinking about is running. She doesn’t hear me, even if that means she is heading toward a road. This collar helps me get her attention and keep her safe. Worth every penny. No complaints at all. I love the size. I think this is the best, quality collar you can get for a smaller dog. I usually only have to use the pager and I have her attention. For people out there who think these collars are inhumane…I’ve tried out every level of the electric shock on myself. I’ve never gone over 40 on her. Over 40 on my bear arm is not comfortable, it did make muscles twitch in my arm. My arm never had any marks on it. I don’t know about all collars but this one could not injure my dog. I would not go over level 40 on her though. I always rotate the dial down to zero so that I never hit it on accident and confuse her. It gets her attention where all the training and classes have never been able to consistently do, and keeps her safe from what she doesn’t know will hurt her. I would recommend going to a class. As with every command your dog needs to understand what is going on, and what is being asked from them. Be patient with your dog. This isn’t a miracle tool. I think of it as an extension of my hand. It should never be used to intimidate your dog.
