Has anyone here used/uses the Einstein Ecollars?

Hi, I was curious if anyone here uses the Ecollars from Ecollar Technologies, the Einstein models? What I've read about them on their site and Leerburg's (not sure how much faith to put into that) was pretty good, and their stopwatch style transmitter seems more intuitive to me than the other styles, but they're a new player so very few people seem to have them, and I'm a bit doubtful getting one because of that.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

Einstein stands for "a brilliant brain". To me that is not what these collars represent. Your dog is not even a year old so she still needs to learn to adapt to the crazy human ways. There are more positives ways to teach your dog without having to hurt her. Of course this is my personal opinion and this matter has already been discussed extensively on the forum. It is not my intention to re-start this again.

Wolfy, not sure how you calculated her age, but she's a year and 9 months old now.

qbchottu, I'd have hoped you could give some more details as to your choice, and perhaps some pros and cons. Dogtra was my second choice, maybe the 280NCP.

On paper, the Einstein sounds better, vs. the Dogtra. It's got a waterproof transmitter, lockable stim level (or is it really hard to accidentally change it on the Dogtra?), a boost button (it stims your set level plus 25), and a few nice features like a light on the collar.

Their website (I realize it's biased) says good stuff about their technology being the newest and most advanced, for what it's worth: www.ecollar.com

I like Dogtra. Same way I like a certain lead or a certain collar. Personal preference. Use it, try it, and find what works for you. The features are all basically standard. Some bells and whistles thrown in to draw you in. But in the end, you won't know what works for you until you are out on the field. Do you have a trainer or club? Ask to try their models out. See what fits.
