When it comes to finding the best training collar for small dogs, the only training collar that is close to perfection is the Dogtra Hunter 1 Dog Training Collar 280NCP Platinum System. Indeed, the only thing that is not so perfect about it is the price tag. Other wise, it is really the best choice for a training collar that is safe and awesome for small dogs.
First of all, this training collar suits dogs from 5 pounds onward. Also, in terms of stimulation, it uses 2 different modes of correction stimulus. You can either choose the vibration stimulus or the whooping 127 different levels of static correction. We love the 127 levels of static correction, as the increase between each level is minute. This means that your dog will never be overly compensated at all. This is awesome, as small dogs have a lower body mass, hence their body is not suitable for receiving a large shock as compared to larger dogs.
The range for this best training collar for small dogs is at 1/2 mile, which is really more than adequate for the smaller dogs. Worried that the system will fail if the dog decides to take a dip in the pool? Fret not, as this training collar system is completely waterproof!
