Frequently Asked Questions
What is an e collar?
- An e collar is a dog training tool. It is also known as a remote trainer, remote training collar, or shock collar for dogs. An e-collar allows you to communicate remotely with your dog. Used correctly, it can help reinforce commands and correct undesirable behaviors in your pet. It enables you to train your dog with more precise timing and consistency. This makes an e-collar a very effective training tool.
Will an e collar hurt my dog?
- A remote trainer works by sending a signal from the transmitter to the collar on the dog’s neck. The signal then triggers the stimulation, which can be in the form of static shock. The stimulation is meant to distract the dog from doing something they’re not supposed to or mark the desired behavior. The stimulation may be unpleasant but generally harmless.
For people who prefer not to use static stimulation, the Dogtra 2300NCP comes with a Pager vibration system.
Are e-collars effective?
- E-collars can be invaluable training tools, but only when used correctly. If you are unsure about using one or do not know how to start, please consult a professional trainer.
When can I use an e-collar for dogs?
- PetsTEK does not recommend using an e-collar for dogs younger than 6 months old. Supplement training with a remote trainer only when your dog has already learned the basic commands.
Are Dogtra collars worth it?
- Yes. Dogtra shock collars are safe and effective training devices trusted by professional dog trainers and pet owners alike.
How does the Dogtra 2300NCP work?
- The Dogtra 2300NCP transmitter remote sends feedback to the receiver collar attached to the dog’s neck. The collar has two contact points, also called prongs, that deliver static stimulation. You can also set the remote to deliver vibration to mark the message you’re sending your pet. In highly distracting situations, you can use the boost option.
Does the Dogtra 2300NCP have any safety features?
- Yes. The Dogtra 2300NCP has a safety feature wherein the stimulation stops automatically even if the button is pressed for more than 12 seconds.
Operating the Dogtra 2300NCP Remote Training Collar
How do I fit the e-collar?
- Making sure the collar fits correctly will ensure more consistent correction. To fit the e-collar properly:
- Put the receiver on your dog’s neck below the ears, on the side of the windpipe.
- Make sure the contact points are touching the skin.
- Check the fit. You should be able to put a couple of fingers between the strap and your dog’s skin.
If the collar is too loose, it won’t administer correction reliably. Meanwhile, a too-tight collar is an irritation risk. So, make sure your dog is comfortable. Rotate the collar every 2 hours and never leave it for more than 10 hours daily.
How do I charge the Dogtra 2300NCP e collar?
- Recharge the unit if the indicator light turns red or the transmitter LCD shows only 1 bar:
- Open the rubber plugs on the battery charging receptacles and plug in the charging cable.
- Plug the charger into a 120-volt wall outlet. All indicator lights should glow red if properly plugged in.
- The unit will automatically shut off during the charging process.
- The lights will turn green once the unit is fully charged, approximately after 2 hours.
The Dogtra 2300NCP transmitter and receiver can be charged at the same time using the battery charger and the splitter cable.
How do I turn the Dogtra 2300NCP e-collar transmitter on and off?
- To turn the transmitter on, press the power button on the right side of the transmitter until the LCD screen illuminates. To turn the transmitter off, press the same button until the LCD screen shuts off.
How do I turn the Dogtra 2300NCP e-collar receiver on and off?
- To switch the collar on, place the magnetic red dot on the transmitter against the red dot on the receiver. Hold them together until the LED indicator on the receiver lights up. Repeat the same procedure to turn off the unit until the LED light turns red momentarily, indicating that the receiver has shut off.
How do I adjust the stimulation level of my Dogtra 2300NCP collar?
- Adjust the stimulation level (0-127) using the Rheostat Dial on top of the transmitter. Always start at the lowest level and work your way up. The appropriate level can be found when the dog responds to the stimulation with a mild reaction.
How to use the 1-Dog/2-Dog toggle switch of my Dogtra 2300NCP transmitter?
- Use the 1-Dog/2-Dog toggle switch to change between the two receiver collars coded in your transmitter remote. Push the lever up if you want to control the black receiver. Meanwhile, set the lever down to control the orange receiver.
Can the Dogtra 2300NCP stimulation intensity be adjusted when in use?
Why can’t I get the full range on my e-collar?
- The 2300NCP system has a 3/4-mile range. The actual range may vary depending on how you carry the transmitter and training conditions. To get the maximum range, hold the transmitter with the antenna facing away from you. Keep your unit properly charged for maximum signal strength.
How do I know if my Dogtra 2300NCP e-collar is ready for use?
- When the LED indicator blinks every 4 seconds, the receiver is on and ready for use. The LED indicator flashes on the transmitter and the receiver when stimulation is delivered.
What do Nick and Constant stimulation mean?
- Nick emits a single pulse of static stimulation when the Nick button is pressed. On the other hand, Constant gives continuous, static stimulation as long as the button is pressed, for up to 12 seconds.
What is the Dogtra 2300NCP Pager?
- The Pager button sends a vibration for up to 12 seconds for as long as the button is held down.
Can I change stimulation levels while pressing the remote buttons?
Troubleshooting the Dogtra 2300NCP Remote Training Collar
1. Why is my dog not reacting to the e-collar?
Your dog not reacting to the e-collar stimulation could be a simple matter of the receiver and transmitter not being turned on. It could also be due to the prongs not touching your dog’s skin. Check the fit. If the fit is okay, check the prong length. If the contact points are too short, you may want to get longer ones to get the collar to work correctly. If you are already using the longest length, you may want to consider shaving your dog’s hair to get better contact.
Check our blog for more reasons why your dog is not reacting to the e-collar.
2. The test light turns on, but I do not feel anything.
You may simply have a high tolerance. Try turning the level up. This could also be due to the battery being low. Check your LCD for battery life.
3. The range is less when the dog is farther away.
Check if the antenna is not damaged. If it’s not an antenna issue, it could be due to terrain. Heavy brush or tree cover can affect the range of the device. Similarly, any electrical conductors in the area will affect the range of the e-collar.
4. My Dogtra 2300NCP is not holding a charge.
Check if the batteries are charged properly. If the charging port is dirty, try cleaning the dirt with a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol. If the charging pin is damaged, you will need to contact Dogtra for repair.
