In many cases, using the best shock collar for hunting dogs significantly helps their training.

Modern e collars have lights and tones to assist in locating your dog outdoors and can silently transmit signals over great distances. Today, many remote hunting dog collars even include functions like GPS and terrain maps.

The Dogtra 2700 T&B Remote Training Collar – Designed for Serious Upland Hunters

Dogtra 2700T&B Remote Training Collar Set

The Dogtra 2700 T&B Training and Beeper is specifically invented for upland hunting that allows you to control and locate your dog without breaking a sweat. Dogtra previously released a trainer and beeper model in the 2500 T&B. They have since improved the sensor and added a High Performance Pager vibration system and thus, the 2700 T&B was born. The best feature of this e-collar is a built-in, downward-facing beeper horn rather than the add-on horn most systems use that rides on the back of the collar.

The collar has 127 nick/constant stimulation levels that let you enjoy precise control. This allows you to find the right stimulation level for your dog and the best correction setting. Its three beeper modes (run & point, point only, and locate) with high and low tones provide you with accurate tracking abilities. Over a one-mile radius, you can track, observe, and detect your dog accurately. The receiver and transmitter are both waterproof. The 2700 T&B also has better contact points, which is essential when your dog runs aggressively toward the birds. The Dogtra 2700 T&B functions more than sufficiently in the most challenging conditions. You can be confident that your dog will go to great lengths to provide you with a good hunt.

The Dogtra 2700 T&B is a one-dog system with a selection of tones. If you happen to have two dogs, you can opt to purchase an additional collar. Although, if you prefer a two-dog system, the 2702 T&B performs the same functions. Each tone is assigned to a different collar.

 

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 dog shock collar. 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. In addition, it provides you the means 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.

The Dogtra 2700 T&B comes with a high-performance Pager vibration and audible tone for people who prefer not to use static stimulation.

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 with 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 beeper collars are safe and effective training devices trusted by professional dog trainers and owners.

What are the advantages of using a dog beeper collar?

  • There are numerous advantages to using a dog beeper collar, including the ability to track your dog while running or playing off-leash, train your dog to come when called, and locate your dog if they ever run away.

How do you pick the best dog beeper collar for your dog?

  • Consider your dog's individual needs and preferences, as well as a collar that is comfortable and simple to use, when selecting the suitable dog beeper collar for your dog.
You can also find out more about choosing the right e-collar for your dog here.

How does the Dogtra 2700 T&B work?

  • The Dogtra 2700 T&B employs motion sensors that depend on the dog's movement and emit a beep to indicate what the dog is up to. The T&B allows you to keep track of all of them with a simple turn of a knob, twist of a dial, or sometimes, press of a button. In addition, it has LCD screens, no-slip grip transceivers, and water-resistant receivers and transceivers. These extra features are included to enhance the functionality of the beeper collar.

 

Operating the Dogtra 2700 T&B Remote Training Collar

How do I fit the e-collar?

  • Making sure the e collar fits correctly will ensure more consistent correction. To fit the e-collar properly:
  1. Put the receiver on your dog's neck below the ears, on the side of the windpipe.
  2. Make sure the contact points are touching the skin.
  3. Check the fit. You should be able to put a couple of fingers between the strap and your dog's skin.

Fitting the Collar Illustration

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. Then, rotate the collar every 2 hours and never leave it for more than 10 hours daily.

 

How do I charge the Dogtra 2700 T&B e-collar?

  • When to charge the unit:
    • The indicator light turns red or does not come on.
    • The transmitter LCD shows only 1 bar on the indicator.

To turn the receiver off:

How do I adjust the stimulation level of my Dogtra 2700 T&B collar?

  • The Dogtra 2700 T&B has a Selector Dial on the top of the transmitter. To adjust the stimulation level between 1 and 127, turn the Selector Dial clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on your dog's temperament. 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.

 

Can the Dogtra 2700 T&B stimulation intensity be adjusted when in use?

  • Yes.

 

Why can't I get the full range on my e-collar?

  • The Dogtra 2700 T&B system has a 1-mile range. The actual range may vary depending on how you carry the transmitter and training conditions. Hold the transmitter with the antenna facing away from you to get the maximum range. Keep your unit properly charged for full signal strength.

Suggested Remote Transmitter Holding Guide 

How do I know if my Dogtra 2700 T&B e-collar is ready for use?

  • When the LED indicator flashes every 4 seconds, the receiver is on and ready for use. The LED indicator will blink on both the transmitter and the receiver when the transmitter buttons are pressed.
 

What do Nick and Constant stimulation mean?

  • The Dogtra 2700 T&B transmitter has five buttons on its front, left, and right sides. The Nick/Constant button is located at the front of the remote. The Nick function is activated and emits a single pulse of static stimulation when the Nick/Constant button is pressed within 1 second. 

On the other hand, the Constant function is activated when the Constant button is pressed. The Constant mode sends continuous, static stimulation for as long as the button is pressed, up to 12 seconds. If the button is pressed for over 12 seconds, the stimulation stops to avoid prolonged correction.

 

What is the Dogtra 2700 T&B HPP vibration?

  • The Pager button sends a vibration for up to 12 seconds for as long as the button is held down. It is the middle button on the left and front side of the transmitter, intended for each collar or dog.

What is the locate function of the Dogtra 2700 T&B remote training collar?

  • The locate button is on the left side of the transmitter. Pressing and holding the locate button down will release a series of beeps on the receiver’s beeper horn. This lets you keep track of your dog’s location. 

The beeper pitch can be adjusted from low to high on the 2700 T&B. However, this feature is not available on the 2-Dog model, the 2702 T&B. Instead, the green receiver will emit a high pitch and the orange receiver will emit the low pitch. The pitch can not be adjusted on either.

2700T&B Remote Buttons Labeled

How do I adjust the modes of the Dogtra 2700 T&B remote training collar?

  • The locate mode can be activated any time by pressing the top orange button (labeled Locate) on the transmitter’s left side.
  • To set the unit to Run/Point and Point-Only mode, press the black Mode button on the right side of the remote transmitter.
Note that when the Mode button is pressed for the first time, the receiver will beep twice. The beeper unit will also always start in Run/Point mode. The beeper will sound every 7 seconds when the dog is running. When your dog is on point or stationary, the beeps will sound every 2 seconds.
The second time the Mode button is pressed, it will only beep once. The beeper will also remain silent while the dog is running. It will beep every 2 seconds when the dog is on point or stationary.

Troubleshooting the Dogtra 2700 T&B Remote Training Collar

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. You may consider shaving your dog's hair to get better contact if you already use the longest length.

Check our blog for more reasons your dog is not reacting to the e-collar. 

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.

The range is less when the dog is farther away.

  • Check if the antenna is not damaged. It could be due to terrain if it's not an antenna issue. For example, 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.

My Dogtra 2700 T&B remote trainer is not holding a charge.

  • Check if the batteries are adequately charged. If the charging port is dirty, try cleaning the dirt with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. If the charging pin is damaged, you must contact Dogtra for repair.

Please check the user manual for more information on how to use your Dogtra 2700 T&B remote training collar.
