Having two noisy dogs can be rather difficult to go for a walk in the park. They tend to bark whenever they see something, so training is necessary. However, if you cannot afford to enlist your dog in a training program you can do it yourself with the help of Dogtra YS 300. I highly recommend this dog collar. With a small schnauzer and a lab mix, I have used the Dogtra collar effectively on both.
It is designed for small to medium-sized dogs, but it proved very efficient in my lab. I used to get a vibration notice prior to the correction. Therefore, if I feel the correction is too strong for my dog, I am capable to set it to vibrate only. Using this setting with all dogs after correct their behavior becomes easy. It has a rechargeable battery that lasts about two hours. It comes with a long strap, but you can cut it to your taste.
The collar has had good results in a short span of time. I have been using it for quite a long time (2 years) and it still works, my dogs barking less even without wearing the collar. I am going to buy another one so each dog has its own collar. I am so pleased at the product that I must highly recommend it to all, so they can benefit using the product as like as me.
We bought a Dogtra collar after our many attempts to stop our energetic dog from barking. We were faced with a decision to either get rid of the dog or be evicted by our neighbors so we had to try something fast! After playing with a few settings, we managed to find one that actually worked. Our dog has gone through hours of training and exercise. Only this collar worked fine. We tried citronella collars, behavior modification therapy, and positive reinforcement and nothing but this collar worked great.
I cannot give this a full 5 star review because our first purchase of the collar seemed to be a dud. It would not hold a battery charge for a full day so our dog continued to bark later in the day when he knew he would not be shocked. However, we are happy with how well it worked when charged, and will give Dogtra another chance. They offered to replace our collar, so we are happy about that.
We have a highly energetic and stubborn dog but this Dogtra collar worked great! We would recommend this to anyone. We remove the collar when we want him to notify us of the company, too!
You can expect a great turnaround from your dog’s barking behavior with this collar, but to make it most effective, follow a few of our guidelines. Expect some trial and error at first, since each dog is different and will respond differently to the settings. Read the instructions and figure out which setting works best for your dog. The collar needs to be tight enough that the prongs touch the dog’s skin – for thick-coated dogs, tighten it. The collar is meant for temporary use only – it is not a replacement for love and care, so ensure you remove it regularly when your dog is free to roam.
