Pet trainer or sporting dog unit for pet and K9 training for mild-mannered to medium disposition dogs weighing between 15 and 75 pounds. Pointers and Flushing dogs.

Our 280 NCP Platinum is an entry-level sporting dog unit with low to medium power. The new 280 NCP Platinum is gentle enough for even the most mild mannered dogs and with all the desired features of our pro-line collars, this trainer bridges the gap between our popular pet trainers and our Pro-line. It incorporates many of the same features as our Pro-line series at a more affordable price.

This dynamo is a bestseller year in and year out. It features a 1/2 mile range, LCD screen provides easy viewing and control of stimulation levels, durable water-resistant transmitter, waterproof receiver, long-lasting rechargeable Ni-MH batteries, nick and constant stimulation modes as well as Dogtra's patented non-electrical stimulation pager -- cutting-edge electronics from the World's Finest E-collar company. Throw in Dogtra's industry-leading durability and value-pricing, and you can see why the 280 NCP Platinum is at the top of its class.

Dogtra's 280 NCP Platinum Remote Trainer System offers 3 different kinds of stimulation:

Pressing the "Nick" button causes the receiver to emit a very short single pulse of electrical stimulation. It automatically shuts off in a fraction of a second no matter how long the button is held down. The Nick is used as a substitute for leash corrections when the dog is off lead. The Nick is mild but motivating!

Pressing the "Constant" button causes the collar to emit electrical stimulation that stays on for up to 12 seconds as long as the button is held down. "Constant" stimulation is used as a reserve high for stopping power to stop unsafe behaviors such as chasing animals or cars. The maximum duration is 12 seconds at which time an automatic power-down circuit will activate and the collar/receiver will turn off. The collar will reactivate when you push the button again.

Pressing the "Pager" button causes the collar/receiver to vibrate like a phone pager. It allows you to train with a non-electrical type of stimulation. It’s a great attention getter giving you added training finesse. The "Pager" may be used as a correction or as a training cue for commands.

Exclusive Features:

  • Easy to use. Controls on the Dogtra training collars are designed so that any dog owner can operate them. No pre-programming needed.
  • Pocket-sized Hand-held Transmitter that features user-friendly controls.
  • The trainer's Hand-held Transmitter housing is water-resistant and the dog's Receiver housing is waterproof.
  • The Receiver is newly designed to make adjusting the collar strap easy and is lightweight and non-obtrusive in appearance.
  • Ergonomic trainer's Hand-held Transmitter is small and fits the hand well with a non-clumsy feel and glove-use buttons for a no-look feel during inclement weather.
  • All intensity level adjustments are made from a digital dial on the Hand-held Transmitter using Dogtra's patented rheostat intensity control that provides an infinite number of settings. One is the lowest setting and 127 is the highest. The dial works like a rheostat, gradually increasing the intensity graduating up to the necessary level in a linear progression (no steps or increments) with no jumps between intensity levels. The intensity selection dial is located on the top of the Transmitter. In the fully counter clockwise position - ”zero” setting, no electrical stimulation occurs even when the Transmitter button is pressed (a safety feature). Moving the dial from the zero setting in a clockwise manner, electrical stimulation will begin at a lower setting. Continuing clockwise will increase the stimulation level in a linear progression - no steps or increments up to the highest level (127). Conversely, moving the dial counter-clockwise, the level reduces in a downward linear progression until at the “zero” setting (fully counter-clockwise). This feature allows for subtle adjustment of the level (upward of downward) while the transmitter button is held down continuously - providing e-linear training.
  • Reliable stimulation effective for all types of dogs no matter how heavy the coat.
  • Easily visible blue LCD screen displays exact level of stimulation and can be seen in the dark or low light conditions.
  • 3 bar battery life indicator and LED colored indicator to show remaining battery life.
  • Trainer can control 2 different dogs from one Transmitter with our 2 dog model - the 282 NCP Platinum which has 2 grey first dog buttons and 2 orange second dog buttons. Please refer to the top of this page to order our 2 dog model.
  • Digital electronics and long-lasting user-replaceable and rechargeable Ni-MH batteries featured in Transmitter and Receiver.
  • Over 999 different identity codes to prevent conflicts with other collars.
  • A filtering system prevents unwanted reception from outside sources.
  • Very efficient penetration power up to 1/2 mile range.
  • A short 2" antenna is supplied to be screwed into the top of the Hand-held Transmitter to ensure that the signals are sent properly to the Receiver and that maximum range is attained. No external antenna on the Receiver. The antenna is inside the Receiver.
  • Collar strap length 3/4 " x 29". Longer straps sold separately.
  • 1/2" stainless steel contact points.
  • All models include lanyard.
  • Initial Batteries included.
  • Battery charger with 5-5 splitter cable.
  • U.S. Patents.

Please note that Dogtra collars are not intended for use on dogs weighing less than 12 pounds or less than 6 months of age.
