Dogtra ARC Wetlands: Review
What Makes The Dogtra ARC Wetlands Different To Standard Dogtra ARC Model?
The main differences are:
- The Wetlands models has a high finish camouflage dog collar strap/device along with camouflage accents on the handheld transmitter.
- The system as a whole is better for hunters like Wetland hunters who want camo on the handheld and collar device
- The Wetlands e collar can only accommodate up to one dog on the handheld transmitter, whereas the standard ARC model can control up to 2 dogs if you purchase an additional collar device separately
So, if you’re a hunter or you will be using the e collar in an environment where camo is beneficial compared to the black finish of the standard ARC model, and you only have one dog to control/train at a time, the Wetlands might be a better option.
Apart from that, the main features from the standard ARC model are the same on the ARC Wetlands.

What Might Be The Best Way To Use An E Collar On A Dog?
For professional advice on using a shock or e collar, see a vet or a professional dog trainer, or animals expert.
But, in general, good e collars come with instruction manuals and guides that tell you how to safely and effectively use their product.
Look to buy from a reputable company that cares about the safety and well being of the dogs.
The best way to use an e collar might be as a temporary device for associating negative or undesirable behavior with a cue (such as a vibration or noise), or a stimulus (such as a nick/static stimulus).
They can be used to teach or retrain a certain behavior, and then put away. They may only be brought out again if your dog/s forget that behavior, or need retraining.
So, really, they could be used ideally as a temporary training and teaching tool (not permanent) for happy and healthy dogs.
If you notice any negative side effects to your dog’s physical or mental health from using an e collar, discontinue use immediately.
The benefits of an e collar might be:
- You don’t have to set the collar to shock if it has alternative options like tone or vibration
- The lowest shock settings on good e collars will provide a small amount of discomfort, not pain
- The feedback to your dog is instantaneous and not delayed
- It works at range
- It saves you shouting and getting frustrated
- + many other benefits
