Dogtra 202C: Review
The 202C is simply a 2 dog system of the 200C, so it comes with essentially all the same features.
You can check out a review of the Dogtra 200C in this guide.
Specifically with the 202C, 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 202C 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 200C and the 202C are built on the premise to be a small and compact dog collar training system.
You can check out the full features in the 200C 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
