The newest product from Dogtra combines tools used by professional dog trainers everywhere into one handheld transmitter.  Dogtra paired the Dogtra iQ with a clicker and made a truly innovative dog training system; Dogtra iQ CLiQ.   Utilizing the clicker to build new skills and the remote collar stimulation to achieve off-leash reliability you will enhance your relationship with your dog.

The Dogtra iQ collar is a basic trainer system that offers plenty of features and benefits to pet owners.  It can used in a variety of different training scenarios, from basic obedience training to bark control and other undesirable behaviors.  The Dogtra IQ is easy to use, comfortable for small dogs to wear and is highly effective for training.  This unit provides precise stimulation levels ranging from 0 to 100 and also features low to medium power for the smaller dog.   The collar is small, compact and convenient for smaller dogs, without an external antenna. The transmitter is compact, ergonomically designed, and easy to use.  The batteries are owner replaceable and rechargeable.

There are many good reasons to choose the Dogtra iQ system for your small dog.  It provides versatility for all of your training needs.  It offers both constant and “nick” stimulation and also a non-stimulating vibration pager mode.  The battery system is able to be charged in 2 hours.  The lightweight but durable collar weighs just 3.9 ounces, which makes it comfortable for your small dog.

We should also point out some of the cons to the Dogtra iQ, as well.  The system uses electronic stimulation corrections.  Some pet owners do not like to utilize electronic stimulation, even though it is perfectly safe to use on dogs that weigh more than 10 pounds.   Some owners have also expressed that the 400-yard range might not be sufficient for all of their training needs.  The unit is designed for smaller dogs, so it will not be powerful enough for larger dog breeds.

Even though this collar is small in size, it’s big on functionality and effectiveness.  If you’re looking for a training collar system for a small dog, the Dogtra iQ training is a quality model. It offers many of the features of higher-priced collars, in a version and size that’s perfect for training the small dog.



This week in the all new blog,  we thought we would discuss with you the MidWest #1500 Series iCrates – Double Door Dog Crates.   This is one of our most popular crate systems.

The MidWest iCrate was designed completely around the safety, security, and comfort of your dog in mind.  It sets up easily, and has a fold and carry configuration that requires no use of tools.  The crates come equipped with every feature one can think of; a composite plastic pan, plastic carrying handle to move the dog crate from one location to another, safe and secure slide bolt latches, and most importantly it comes with a FREE divider panel for use while your puppy is growing up.

The FREE divider panel is used to cut housebreaking time in half by keeping your puppy from eliminating in one end and sleeping in another.  May also be used to adjust the length of the living area in the crate as your puppy grows into its adult sized home.

The following models that you purchase from  come with a FREE Quiet Time Deluxe Crate Mat:  1524, 1530, 1536 and the 1542

We often hear how cruel and inhumane it is to use static stimulation (“shock collars”) when training a dog, but there is another way to view the use of a static shock collar for training.  When used correctly, there are actual benefits to using static shock as a means of training and disciplining your pet over other  training techniques.  There are many dogs – that are perhaps stubborn or just have a lot of energy – that do not respond that well to other training techniques.  The fact is many dogs lives have been saved from accidental death, abuse and even euthanasia because of the use of static correction.  Let’s take a realistic look at this means of correcting your dogs’ behavior!

The “shock” from a shock collar is the same kind of sensation we feel when we’ve walked across a rug and touched a doorknob.  Startling, yes.  Uncomfortable, yes.  But not damaging.  This is the same type of sensation delivered from the shock collar.  It’s more an annoyance to the dog than painful. 

For training to be effective, two important factors need to be addressed:  1) proper timing and 2) finding and setting the correct stimulation level.

It’s been shown that when a dog misbehaves, a disciplinary action needs to occur immediately in order for the dog to make the connection between its behavior and the correction.  Because of the quick response time, the shock collar is an ideal tool for providing correction.

When beginning to use the shock collar to manage your pets’ behavior, you first want to make sure the collar fits properly – that the contact probes are touching your dogs neck – not too loose, not too tight.  Next, you always want to start out at the lowest correction level – then watch your dogs’ behavior as you apply correction.  Ease into it.  You don’t want to scare the heck out your dog by applying too strong of a correction right off the bat. 

With a remote trainer, at the point you notice your dog reacting to the stimulation, this is where you want to leave the correction level setting on your transmitter.   The level can be raised from that point forward depending on how stubborn your dog proves to be.  This is true for static bark collars and containment fence e-collars as well.  Bark collars are generally set off by the vibration from your dogs’ bark, so you want to start out at the lowest setting and once again, watch your dogs’ behavior when they bark.  Leave the collar at the setting at which your dog begins to feel the correction.  You can always adjust the level upwards if needed.

Proper use of static correction will require your participation – a little time and patience on your part.  It’s best to take advantage of any training materials at your disposal that will help you to make the most of this effective training tool!
