5.0 out of 5 stars Dogtra 1900NCP, October 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dogtra 1900NCP Field Star 1/2 mile Training Collar Single Dog (Sports)
I read lots of reviews of many different collars. The cheaper ones all seem to have issues after a short amount of use. I also did not want to be buying batteries every month. Another comment someone made was about being water proof. The last thing was the range needed to be more than 50 feet. This collar has so far been GREAT! It lasts for days on one charge, about 3 to 4 days constantly being on, the remote last even longer. I like having the ability to just vibrate the dog for correction as well. I don't have to use the Nick or Constant hardly at all. Only when he goes brain dead, i.e. another dog or something really interesting. Vibrate makes him stop what he's not suppose to be doing almost all the time. I try and use a command before I send a vibrate correction. I will say that the power level of this collar is controllable via the remote. DO NOT LET YOUR KID ALONE WITH THE REMOTE. I tired the shock collar on my self first and found that LVL 1-20 were barely noticeable. At lvl 30 I can hold on to it while pushing the constant button. I decided to turn the power up while holding it and pushing constant. When you get to lvl 40 it starts to hurt enough you don't want to hold it long. I am a big man 6'4" 300 lbs and I stopped there. This thing goes to 127 on the dial. The reason I say don't let your kids play with it is because they will turn it up to high and shock your buddy till he cry's. My kids had the dial set at 80 and hit the button. My oldest told my youngest it was all right to do it. So you can guess what happened next. Poor dog screamed and ran to my wife because I had went to the garage to get something. The youngest was very upset at what she had done to the dog. She cried for quite sometime. I had the boy hold the collar after showing and letting him push the button on (while on 30) me. I wanted him to understand it hurts. He has not done it since. I wish they made them for kids as well, I could see these being useful :-) LOL. Oh and the collar buckle is metal and the actual belt material is VERY strong and also water proof. I had to wash the whole thing after my dog rubbed his neck in $h!t. So I was thankful I bought the water proof one. I also looked at other sites for reviews before deciding on this collar (Cabela's). I would tell anyone with a stubborn dog that is 30 + lbs to get this collar. It works GREAT on my male 95lb Black Lab that just turned 1 yr old.
