Dogtra SureStim H Plus reviews
Nathan is using the Dogtra SureStim H Plus for the second time. He likes the vibration feedback from the remote. He is also happy that the LED flashing light is now more on the visible side of the collar. He also gives thumbs up for the fact that there are replaceable batteries available. What he is unhappy with is that there is no way to know when the battery is fully charged. For all the goodness this Dogtra SureStim H Plus has, it is a bit worrying with this charging indicator.
Zoe is another happy user who has light use with the dog collar. He says the battery stays longer for a month with a full charge. He says it’s better than the other cheap rated dog collars available in the market.
