When using stimulation you can choose between nick and constant stimulation. If you choose to use non-stimulation, the 200C features a high performance pager (vibration), which offers even more versatility and allows you to customize how you train.

Battery and Charging

The handheld and collar both feature a 2 hour rapid charging lithium-polymer battery. The system comes with a wall charger and splitter cable allowing you to charge both the collar and handheld at the same time. Charging the handheld and collar is very easy, by lifting up the rubber seal located on the bottom of the back of the handheld and insert the charging cable. On the collar, lift up the seal, which if the Dogtra logo is facing forwards you, itisbehind the right contact point and insert the charging cable. If you are going to store the system without use for any length of time longer than a month or two it is best to fully charge both batteries for the two hour charge time.
