Dogtra 1900S Black Edition

What Makes The 1900S Black Edition Different To Standard 1900S Model?

The four main differences are:

Increased range of control from handheld remote to collar device to 1 mile (the 1900S is only 3/4 mile)

Added blue LED lights on the collar device and the LCD screen on the handheld remote so you can see your dog and the LCD display in darker conditions

A black matte finish on the handheld and collar device

Increased price


With this is mind, it’s better for people that need increased range, and might be using the collar in darker conditions either early in the morning or later at night.

Apart from these differences, the 1900S black maintains the same features as the original 1900S


Dogtra 1900S Wetlands

What Makes The 1900S Wetlands Different To Standard 1900S Model?

There’s only one main difference which is:

It is coated in a camouflaged pattern for wetland hunting.


It’s ideal for waterfowl hunters and those going into similar environments where camouflage is beneficial. 

Apart from these differences, the 1900S Wetlands maintains the same features as the original 1900S

What Size E Collar/Remote Dog Training Collar Do I Get?

In terms of size of the e collar, you might look for two main things:

– The weight range of the collar i.e. it might say ‘for dogs 8lbs and over’

– The neck size that the collar fits i.e. it might say for dogs with neck sizes 6 to 28 inches



– Find out the weight of your dog

– Measure their neck size and compare it to the collar strap length that the collar comes with

– And, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s sizing specifications for the e collar you want


Safety Considerations With A Remote Dog Training Collar

Safety is extremely important with a remote dog training collar.

Always always get your vet’s advice or the advice of an animal health and/or training expert – nothing is a substitute for professional advice.

Some general safety guidelines for using an e collar humanely might be:

Buy from a reputable company who put proper use of the e collar and the safety of the dog as a priority 

Read and follow the operating guide, instruction/safety manual and training guide that comes with the e collar system from the manufacturer for operation and safety instructions and guidelines

Pay attention to any warnings issued by the manufacturer

Monitor your dog’s response both mentally and physically to using an e collar. Take the collar off immediately and discontinue use of the system if you notice any negative implications or reactions


A good remote dog training collar that uses static stimulation should simply stimulate the muscle (to the point of reflex) to get the dog’s attention, but should not cause pain (it might be slightly annoying for the dog to act as a small deterrent – but shouldn’t cause pain or harm). It certainly shouldn’t cause a ‘sharp pain’ to the muscle or body. 

To get a safe stimulation level – you can always start from the lowest stimulation level, and work your way up to a level that gets the dog’s attention (such as changing body language when a stimulation, vibration or tone is administered) without any visible sign of pain or harm (such as yelping, or showing signs of stress).

A good e collar company should give you all the necessary safety, use and training instructions, and should have a dedicated customer service line to help when you being using the collar system.

The static stimulation function does not need to be used either – tone and vibrate training modes can be used instead.

Some owners like to even use their e collar as a temporary training tool, and may go back to using body or verbal commands once behaviors are reinforced (if suitable).
