Question Best/Good E Collar?

Both of our Electric Collars are old and no longer hold charge. We are looking into getting a good one for training. What does everyone use? Which is the most popular or best one to get? Do you know of any web site that has good deals?

Thanks!

I have a Dogtra e-collar.

The 19000 NCP, I have used this collar previously (used a friends to test out) and I loved it!

Dogtra 1900 NCP Field Star - $249.99 : Dog Equipment, Police Dog, Schutzhund, Service Dog, Dog Agility

Hold's a charge for a long time and I like how I can really adjust the current/shock's degree, it has a nick component as well.

I'm sorta shopping for an e-collar too (won't use it for a while yet though).

The dogtra online store has the most details on the different series on all the site I've looked at.
Dogtra Field Star 1/2 Mile Remote Trainer 1900NCP, Dogtra Collar

And the workingdogforum just had a thread about this:
Which E-collar - Working Dog Forum

I'm pretty sure I'll be getting the Dogtra 1900NCP as well.

I have 8 or so of the Dogtra 1900 and even a couple of the older Dogtra 1700. I've used, at one time or another most of them, but I just feel more comfortable with the Dogtra. I don't honestly know if it it is the best or what the best might be. I have though, been very satisfied with the performance, durabiltiy and of course cost of the Dogtra.

I just bought the Dogtra 1900NCP for Raider. Based on reviews it seems to be the most versatile and reliable.. Dogtra was recommended by our breeder.

I have an older Dogtra collar that I love (over 10 years old). I didn't like some of the models that came out after that mostly because they tended to vary too much in the stim level from one moment to the next. The newer collars my club members have I again like except for having to put the transmitter to the collar to turn it on (what an idiotic design). I don't know the model numbers of the newer collars. A friend has complained about the dial on the Dogtras turning too easily and that needs to be watched.

I have not cared for the TriTronics collars that I have worked with. I couldn't tell you model numbers. I just found them more difficult to use.

I'm in the middle of training with a dogtra 280ncp. I follow lou's protocols and it's more than enough power for your average dog. I usually have it set around 20 (out of 127 i believe).

I paid $200 for it shipped btw.

I own the 19000 as well, I LOVE it. I don't find it bulkier than any other ecollar I've used (sportdog, petsafe) and it works very well. I've never had an issue with it. My bosses both use dogtra as well and love them.
