Let’s check out the Dogtra 282C in more detail!

Dogtra 282C Review

You can go straight to viewing the Dogtra 282C here if you like:

Dogtra 282C E Collar (on Amazon) (note – although the product description might say 282NCP which is the old model, Dogtra should be sending out the new model 282C for this product)

**You can purchase long contact points for the collar separately (only short contact points come with the system) – Dogtra Stainless Steel Contact Points (on Amazon) 

Dogtra 282C: Review

View On Amazon

The 282C is simply a 2 dog system of the 280C, so it comes with essentially all the same features.

You can check out a review of the Dogtra 280C in this guide.

Specifically with the 282C, the differences are:

  • You can control 2 dogs from the handheld remote
  • You get an extra collar receiver for your second dog – the collar is orange
  • The handheld remote comes with a second set of color coded buttons to control your second dog from
  • You get a second splitter cable for the second collar receiver

As a summary and a reminder, the 282C might be good for you if:

  • You are undertaking basic obedience or field training where you need a reduced size receiver/collar for a smaller dog.
  • Your dogs are as small as 10lbs 
  • You have soft to medium temperament dogs
  • You need static and vibration training modes only
  • You want the capacity to train up to two dogs on the same remote

The 280C and the 282C are built on the premise to be a small and compact dog collar training system.

You can check out the full features in the 280C review above.

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
