But you do not need to be a professional K-9 trainer to use Dogtra training collars effectively. Whether you buy a an extra Dogtra Pathfinder collar, Pathfinder TRX (GPS track-only bundle (which is approved for UKC and AKC events) or any of the other products in the Dogtra line, you’ll find a user guide included that offers precise instructions.
