Educator brand training collars, formerly Einstein Collars, offer an abundance of innovative features, quality craftsmanship, and durability that you simply won't find anywhere else. E-Collar Technologies is the only electronic dog training manufacturer that is based in the United States, and it shows. While other, Asian based manufacturers offer training systems that are much less safe and reliable, Educator Collars takes pride in providing customers with electronic dog training collars that are designed specifically with your pet's safety in mind.
Although it is true- you might find less expensive training systems on the market, many times these systems are unreliable, have buttons that stick, and within months you will be ordering a replacement. In essence, you simply won't find the value that you will find when you purchase an Educator training system. Regardless of whether you have a mild-mannered, small dog; or a more stubborn large breed, whether you are searching for obedience training collars or collars to assist you in training hunting dogs or whether you are looking for a single dog system or a system that enables you to train up to 4 dogs at once, with several models to choose from you are certain to find the one that is right for your unique situation.
As of 2017, Educator brand training systems are broken up into five categories: the 300 series, 400 series, 800 series, 900 and 1200 series.
All Educator collars have basically the same features and functions and you can learn more about Educator collar technologies in more detail in our About E-Collar Technologies article. Each series offers a few slight differences, however. In order to help you find the perfect collar for you and your dog we have categorized them according to “transmit range” and collar output (power) depending on your dog’s size and temperament.
Educator collars are broken down further into companion pet, hunting dog and working dog categories. Taking a closer look at some of the different models of Educator remote trainers that are available might assist you in choosing the one that is right for your dog.Below we show the specific differences between the series in order to make it easier for you to find the perfect collar for you and your dog.
Companion pet systems are designed to assist pet owners with obedience training and behavior correction.
A best seller, this 2.4 ounce mini collar is amongst the most versatile dog training collars on the market. It is suitable for small dogs (as little as 5 pounds) as well as larger dogs with mild mannered to normal temperaments. With a ½ mile range, vibration and tone modes, an adjustable "booster" function, 2-hour quick charge Li-Polymer batteries and all of the advanced features you've come to expect from Educator, this collar is a best buy for consumers wishing to train companion pets. The 300 series is available in the 300, which is perfect for trainers wishing to teach obedience to a single pet; or the ET-302, which is a two-dog training system. ET-300 Lady models are available as well, and offer color coordinated transmitters and collars in your choice of pink or leopard skin, making them ideal for the lady trainers.
Offering most of the same great features of the 300 series, the 400 series Educator training collar has a few small differences. The ET-400 series offers a range of ¾ mile, offering your dog more room to roam. Like the 300 Mini, the 400 series uses Li-Polymer 2-hour quick charge batteries. The 400 series Educator training system is available in the 400 for single dogs, and the ET-402, which is a two-dog system.
An excellent choice for dogs 25 pounds and up, the 800 series offers a low to high output range, making it ideal for dogs with normal to stubborn temperaments. With up to one mile range, you have off leash control of your dog in a much larger setting than with the 300 and 400 series systems. The 800 series offers "vibration only" mode, an adjustable "booster" function, and Li-Po 2-hour quick charge batteries. This 4.0 oz. collar is not recommended for smaller breeds, since the mere weight of the receiver-collarcould likely be too much for dogs under25 pounds to wear comfortably.
The 1200 series Educator training collar is in a class all its own. Designed for larger breeds weighing in at 25 pounds and up, this 4.0 oz collar offers a one mile range, and is an ideal choice for hunting and field training. The 1200 series offers the highest level of stimulation of any collar on the market, making it extremely effective for dogs with a stubborn side. Special features include the Educator tone button (included with some models), which provides 1.25 seconds of tone that is followed by static correction or a "vibration only" mode- ideal for dogs who are deaf; a preset "booster" level (fixed at 25) or adjustable booster (depending upon the model you choose); and Li-Po 2-hour quick charge batteries. The 1200 series is available in “waterfowl” camo model and “upland” hunter in orange. There are 4 models which are offered in both 1 and 2 dog systems.
Designed especially for working dogs, the tactical series includes all of the great features of the ET-400 Series and the ET-800 Series respectively. An excellent choice for police dogs and military canines who take their work seriously, the tactical series is available in single-dog and two-dog systems, and while the K9-400 models are small enough for dogs as small as 5 pounds, the K9-800 models are intended for dogs 25 pounds and up. The black remote boasts the “Tactical” description, and the professional design lets those around your dog know that he means business.
With trial and error comes innovation, and the PLUS Series is an excellent example of that. This series, which originated from the working dog genre, takes all of the advantages of the other Educator models, and goes one step further. With a more reliable connection and improved, more balanced static stimulation, the PLUS Series is an ideal choice for trainers with dogs who have normal to very stubborn temperaments. The PLUS Series is available in any Educator training system model simply by purchasing the additional receiver.
The new Educator Pro Series is an effective choice for companion pets, hunting dogs and working dogs alike who have normal temperaments. The Pro Series transmitter offers a completely different configuration that boasts 9 customizable features with vibration mode, tone mode, and 7 static stimulation modes including the patented “instant stimulation”, and is expandable for up to 3 dogs when you purchase the additional collars. An excellent choice for pet owners and hunters alike, the Pro Series offers all of the great features you have come to expect from Educator.
