if you have a trainer that does off leash training never hurts to ask if they have an extra lying around. our did and he hooked us up with a used dogtra for a smokin' price.
sometimes people quit classes and just give him their e collars.

We went with the dogtra 2300ncp. DW was using her trainers and decided to stick with the same model. We've had it for a month or so now and using it 3-4 times a week with great results. Ranger is able to work/walk off lead in areas of high distraction with no issues.
I'm looking at getting one for myself, but I'm leaning more toward the educator ET300 mini. Thanks for all the input.

The 'Sport Dog 425' for $169 gets good reviews. I have an older Dogtra, it's been fine but I wanted lighter and less obtrusive. Used properly they are a great tool.
Most of the in the past I just use the Vibration/ Page feature. That was with our last Lab. She actually loved it when the E-collar came out if you can believe that, she knew fun times were coming.
The 500' leash comes in handy, used properly.

My old dogtra transmitter was very unobtrusive. Went on my belt and I could use it without talking it off my belt. Like I said no tracking light or boost which is a big like for me on the Einstien not to mention their customer service.

And this one should come with it.

OP- I started with the Einstein mini educator and loved it. I recently got another ET400ts plus with 2 receivers and no complaints there either.

I have a Dogtra Sure Stim H plus. I started out with a different model (2300NCP advance) but I lost the transmitter on a very snowy hike on 4th of July pass. Heh. When Dogtra sent me a replacement, they sent me the Sure Stim receiver.
I personally find the vibrate to be more irritating and disruptive to the dog than controlled stim at his working level. Just my .02.

|Nigel||Lot more options out there than I realised, any model Einstein or Dogtra you guys recommend? I noticed Dogtra has some models with a page button for vibration, anyone use this effectively? Can't seem to find the dogtra mini, I'll keep looking.|
