What Makes The Dogtra ARC Handsfree Different To Standard Dogtra ARC Model?
The main differences are:
- This Handsfree model is designed for field operation
- You get an extra remote controller and flexible strap that you buckle around your hand or wrist.
- The handsfree remote controller is fingertip controlled and gives you the freedom to multitask and have discrete control during field operation, making it perfect for hunting dogs and police K9 professionals, or other training professionals
- With the fingertip remote controller, you don’t have to hold onto the hand operated remote, which still comes with this kit
- The last main difference is that the Handsfree only has a capacity of one dog, whereas the standard ARC can control up to 2 dogs from the same transmitter if you purchase an additional collar receiver device
So, if you have a need to multi task, can’t or don’t want to hold onto the handheld transmitter remote, fingertip control appeals to you, and you only have one dog to train or control, the Handsfree might be a better option than the standard ARC.
Apart from that, the main features from the standard ARC model are the same on the ARC Handsfree.

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
