Dogtra 200C vs 280C: Which Might Be Better For You?

Both e collars are:

  • Intended for basic/entry level obedience training and field work
  • Small/compact e collars and handhelds (about 20 to 30% smaller than the other Dogtra e collars) for smaller dogs

The 280C in our opinion is a better remote dog collar training system.

It has more features and more capabilities, and a better handheld remote design.

For the very small price difference, there’s not much point in going for the 200C.

Both the 200C and 280C also have alternative models with all the same features, except they allow an extra dog, for a total of 2 dogs, to be controlled on the remote handheld at a time.

They do this with a separate collar device (an orange collar), and color coded buttons on the remote. You can check out those 2 dog e collars here:
