Dogtra 280C 1-dog

Steve Says:

Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE

One hour of BASIC OBEDIENCE training
from Pro Trainer Robin MacFarlane.

The Dogtra 280C is the next step up from the 200C. The biggest advantage that it has over the 200C is the LCD screen that shows your level. This allows you to see what correction level the transmitter is on with a quick glance.

You also get a 3 bar battery level indicator that shows how much of a charge you have left in the transmitter.

Dogtra 280C 1-dog Overview:

    The Dogtra 280C is an ultra compact 1-dog system that packs all the features of the larger Dogtra units into a system designed for dogs as small as 15 lbs. The 280C features nick and constant stim modes, along with a non-stim high performance pager (vibration). The handheld transmitter and receiver/collars feature 2-hour rapid charge batteries along with a 1/2 mile range. The set is fully waterproof and the LCD on the transmitter displays the remaining battery life and the exact level of stimulation output.

Gun Dog Supply Exclusive: One Hour BASIC OBEDIENCE Ecollar Training DVD

    Dogtra 280C Remote Dog Training Collar 1-dog$40 Value -- You get this FOR FREE when you buy this ecollar.

    We are proud to announce that Professional Dog Trainer Robin MacFarlane is working with us! We just wrapped another video shoot, and are launching her latest DVD.

    PREVIEW: Watch a 10-minute Preview here...

    What's interesting about these videos is that Robin has never worked with these dogs before, and several younger dogs have never been trained on an ecollar.

    First, Robin walks you through the basic obedience commands showing what proper form looks like.

    Next, Robin shows how she introduces the ecollar to two of Steve's puppies, Jack & Tilly, and shows you how to find the right STIM level to communicate with your dog.

    She then turns that into a lesson for your dog to recognize that STIM means pay attention to your handler and expands that into a basic recall.

    Additional segments include teaching RECALL, PLACE, SIT, and HEEL.

    Exclusively available at Gun Dog Supply.

Great product
August 10, 2021
Have used this with my English field cocker spaniel (<25lbs) and has been great. Solid construction, long range. Haven’t even had to use the shock yet, he responds to the vibrate function well but having the shock let’s me run him off leash around small game with the confidence he won’t run off.
  • Good construction
  • Long range
  • Good haptics on the buttons
  • Small receiver, strong belt clip
  • Sensitive magnet, have to be sure and turn the collar off

Dogtra training collar

I like the small remote, as it fits into my hand easily. Had one years ago and the improvement on the one I have not is great. Like the front screen to see what level I have it set on.
  • During this time I like supporting local businesses.

This Dogtra e collar works like a well trained hunting dog, it does what it is supposed to do. This is my second Dogtra, I have a 900s for my Springer and now I have a 280c for my smaller English Cocker. Guess what, now she is listening with a light reminder, soon we will be a working team.
  • Small and compack
  • None

Love Dogtra
December 18, 2020
I have used ecollars for many years. I started with tritonics then used Dogtra and tried some other brands. I came back to Dogtra. Love the ease of use. Simple is better. At least for me.
  • Very reliable, ease of use, smooth and no miss firing, feels nice I my hands
  • If they battery wears out it's hard to fix if at all possible. Wish they had a trade in when needing a new one.

September 7, 2016
This is our second collar. I have a new puppy. Husky are strong minded breed. We wanted to start right with this little one. This is our third Husky, and we wanted to train her to stay in the yard, and it's working well. Plus she was pretty mean to the cats, and it's helped with that.

June 23, 2016
Works great, and it's a very small package. I have it on a 30 lb English Cocker, and he works on 18 out of the 127 levels. The battery life seems good despite the small package, and it charges very fast. Stimulus is near instant from transmitter to receiver.
