Safe and Humane Dog Training
Improve Training Effectiveness and Reduce Stress on Your Dog
Unlike a regular shock collar, Educator training collars use one of the lowest levels of 'blunt' stimulus to improve behavior and reduce the stress of owning a dog. These are the most reliable and advanced dog training collars available in the world. We fully assemble each Educator dog training collar and test all of our products in the USA.
- Innovative ergonomic design.
- Delivers a tapping sensation similar to vibration, but more intense, making it an effective addition to the stimulation.
- User-selectable stimulation levels from 1 to 100 with additional boost stimulus selectable from 1 to 60.
- Pavlovian tone on all models.
- Waterproof transmitter and receiver.
- Floating transmitter.
- Shock resistant.
- Lithium Polymer battery with a charge time of 2 hours.
- Tracking light.
- Multiple dog models available.
- Assembled and tested in USA.
Innovative Ergonomic Design
With its ergonomic 'stopwatch' design, you don’t even have to look at the transmitter, allowing you to watch your dog at all times. The transmitter also controls a tracking light which allows the user to flash or continuously light up the training collar receiver for locating a dog after dark. A beeper can be turned on to help locate a lost transmitter. The waterproof transmitter even floats, so don’t worry if you drop it in the lake. The convenient night blue LCD displays used on all Educator products provide the user an easy way of knowing the stimulation level in all conditions.
Stress-Free Blunt Stimulation is Superior to Shock Collars
Educator collars use proprietary stimulation that’s 'blunt', not 'sharp' like a traditional shock collar. This is less stressful for the dog, while still providing sufficient incentive for the dog to comply with your commands. Educator dog training collars provide one of the highest and cleanest stimulation available to control the most stubborn dogs, even in prey drive.
An exciting new feature is Pavlovian Tone. When the button is held down, the dog first hears a 1½ second tone, followed by stimulation, unless the button is released. Dogs quickly learn to associate the tone with a stimulation and soon respond to the tone itself.
Educator has innovated the use of customized low level stimulation to achieve superior dog training results without placing undue stress on the dog. Our advanced COS (Control Of Stimulation), employed with all Educator dog training collars, provides the owner the ability to finely tune the stimulation level for all the different temperaments of dogs. COS improves training results and provides a better dog training experience for the owner and dog alike. Dogs properly trained with Educator collars typically never vocalize discomfort, jerk their heads or experience the fear of the training collar commonly found with imported shock collars. The stimulation dial can be adjusted from level 0 to 100 easily and safely, without the risk of over stimulation. The patented 'lock and set' feature allows the user to lock in the best stimulation level without risk of accidentally increasing the stimulation. This COS technology is accomplished by voltage-to-amplitude conversion technology employed on all Educator dog training collars.
For situations when you really need to get your dog’s attention, there’s an additional boost feature which provides more distractive stimulation. This boost level is settable between 1 and 60 on most models.
Educator has developed one of the most reliable and fastest wireless link in the dog training collar industry. When you push a button on an Educator product, the training collar responds instantly. Only trust the best for your best friend.
Important Notice About Contact Points
Some dogs are sensitive to nickel, which is found in all stainless steel products, including our standard contact points. Keep a watchful eye for redness or any signs of irritation where the contact points touch the skin. This should be done hourly at first and then slowly transition to once every four hours after a month of daily wearing of the e-collar. At the first sign of redness, immediately switch to our titanium contact points. Dogs with sensitive skin and certain breeds with known skin sensitivities such as Pit Bull Terriers and Boxers should be switched early in the process as a precautionary move. Comfort pads are also available for dogs with sensitive skin and for owners who want to leave their e-collar on their dog for more than 8 hours a day.
Stainless Contact Points
Educator contact points are available in different sizes for different breeds. Be sure to use the shortest contact point that makes a reliable connection.
The 3/8” stainless contact points are great for short-haired breeds.
The 5/8” stainless contact points are ideal for short to medium-haired breeds.
The 3/4” stainless contact points are best for medium to thick-haired breeds with heavy undercoats.
The 1” stainless contact points are great for long-haired breeds
Warning: As with all contact points, do not leave the collar receiver on the dog for more than 8 hours at a time.
Titanium Contact Points
Many contact points are manufactured with a stainless steel material that contains nickel, which often causes reddening of the skin at the point of contact in sensitive dogs. These titanium contact points are made without nickel, enabling your dog to wear the collar without experiencing redness and irritation.
The 3/8” titanium contact points are great for short-haired breeds.
The 5/8” titanium contact points are ideal for short to medium-haired breeds.
The 3/4” titanium contact points are best for medium to thick-haired breeds with heavy undercoats.
Warning: As with all contact points, do not leave the collar receiver on the dog for more than 8 hours at a time.

Proven to be as good as high-end Dogtra and SportDog collars I also have -- but not without issues.
The battery life is such that you have to charge it daily. This isn't worse than others, but the Educator charger is difficult to plug in. You have to move two rubber "doors" on the transmitter and collar, and force two female plugs into the male prongs inside the rubber flaps. With my SportDog, I could just drop the collar on the charging stand. Unfortunately, SportDog's transmitter was just as difficult to charge as the Educator. I want charging stands for both.
I threw away the gaudy yellow shell. It has a back case underneath it and it is totally unnecessary.
I threw away the plastic collar. I use a black elastic band the same width, fitted so it has just the right amount of tension. A static (non-elastic) band is just plain wrong for e-collars. The collars that have rubber bands riveted into them are a poor kludge. Ideally, the manufacturer would design the receiver to accept a continuous silicone band, and offer the bands in 1 cm increments. Until they do, an elastic band cut to size and sewn has proven far superior to the half-dozen remote collars I have from three popular makers. I have also tried the zip-tie style collars. The elastic is far better. The elastic, since it is sewn to custom size, stretches and slips over the head. It holds the receiver with just the right amount of tension to maintain good contact of the points without being too tight and while allowing stretch during movement. My dog has some "dewlap," but not as much as some other dogs do. With this flabby, loose skin on the neck, you either have to cinch a static collar down too tight, or it will have poor contact.
I use the swivel belt clip which has worked fine.
My review includes more details below, but the conclusion of them is this is a remote collar that is much the same as the others. At this point, having used it extensively, I would drop it for another remote unit that offered charging stands for both the collar and receiver.
The "tapping sensation" is exactly like the regular vibrate, but it pulses off every couple seconds. It has absolutely no additional intensity. I found this to be inferior to continuous vibrate on my Dogtra and Sportdog collars, although overall the Educator is comparable. I don't have a preference among the three.
The "blunt" stimulation is also a hollow claim. I used it on myself up to a medium level and found there was no difference between this collar and the other two brands I have. I also found that like other collars, the "continuous" stimulation is not continuous at all, but it pulses, and not very rapidly. I think the Dogtra pulses faster, the Sportdog is the slowest. I believe the relatively long delay between stimulations in "continuous" mode is counterproductive. This is in part why I was hoping the "tapping" mode would be more useful. I believe truly continuous stimulation, even if it isn't painful, is useful in communication/training. It is essential to "negative reinforcement" where you are taking away a disagreeable or annoying sensation to reinforce correct behavior. If you are trying to use negative reinforcement with something that you are effectively taking away every other second regardless of the dog's behavior, then that is not so effective. I want a continuous continuous. This collar has no continuous vibrate, no continuous tone (no tone at all), and the so-called continuous stimulation is not.
The mini is not so mini. The transmitter is a little smaller than Educator's other transmitters but it is still as big and awkward as my Sportdog and bigger than a Dogtra. The yellow color takes away the discreetness that the manufacturer claims for the mini model. I understand they sell black cases. I think the yellow should be the optional collar. The receiver is also still quite thick and wide, although it is not as broad as other receivers.
The rest of the collar is fine, but it does not impress me as an improvement on mid-range collars from five years ago.
Update - having tested this collar some more on and off a dog, I can report a few more results. First, the range appears to be outstanding. I tested it at 1500 feet using the light and it worked even with the antenna below a hill (out of line of sight) and held down near the ground. While technically this is only about 1/4 mile, my old Dogtra 7000M, also a "1/2 mile" rated collar, would frequently fail at much shorter ranges. Back then the excuse was that the half-mile claim was based on perfect conditions. Whatever. I believe the Educator's 1/2 mile claim is legitimate. I cannot see ever needing more than this genuine 1/2 mile range for my dog or really anything but a hunting hound, in which case you might want GPS too.
I also have come to appreciate the granularity in the levels of stimulation. With just the initial 100 levels, I think it adjusts pretty finely. Educator makes you buy an additional reducer to halve the 100 levels (effectively gaining another 50 intermediate steps between the stock 0 and 50). The older Dogtra allowed me to set low or medium levels on the receiver and offered 127 steps for each -- but I don't think it was actually any more granular, at least not in a meaningful way. Compare this to the Garmin/TT, with only 18 steps.
Finally, I found that although they sell this with a yellow skin, and you have to pay more for a black skin, you can also just remove the yellow skin (it pops off with a flat screwdriver). Underneath the purely decorative skin is a black case. So now I just use it with no "skin." I see no disadvantage to this, and it makes the transmitter slightly smaller.
Update: 3 years later the second model has sort of slowly but continuously lost power over time. Furthest it will go is about 25 yards. That's the mini. I've decided despite that due to my situation (living out in the middle of nowhere) to bump up and get the 1 mile model and see how it goes. When these things work they make life with a dog so much easier...
