Congratulations and thank you for purchasing our H2 0
PLUS Series ™ Training Collar with "Add-On"
capability. It offers the Maxx-Range ™ Internal
Antenna System, the industry's only internally woven
antenna in the collar. With up to a one mile range,
they are perfect for hunting, basic obedience, and
professional training. H2 0 PLUS series collars feature
sixteen levels of intensity easily selected by one hand
for maximum control and safety. Each model includes
both Momentary "Nick" and Continuous stimulations.
Additional features include Positive Vibration, Jump
stimulation, Rise stimulation, and a Beeper with
Locate, Run & Point mode, and Point Only mode. The
transmitter and collars are both 100% waterproof.

PLUS Series Dog Training Collar is durable, safe, and
very humane when used correctly. The automatic
safety shut-off feature stops the stimulation after 8
seconds to prevent accidental or prolonged
stimulation. Thanks again for choosing D.T. Systems
to help bring out the best in your best friend!

the exact stimulation level for your
dog (see page 18).
Transmitter Indicator Light
When one of the buttons on the transmitter is pushed,
the Red LED light will turn on to indicate that the
transmitter is being operated. When the battery needs
charging, the Red LED light will blink rapidly after
pressing any transmitter button. The Red LED light
will stay on solid while plugged into the charger.
Transmitter Antenna
Be sure to check that the antenna is securely fastened
to the transmitter before each use. Hand tighten only.
Use care when attaching antenna. Over-tightening
may cause damage to the antenna or antenna mount.
Momentary and Continuous Stimulations
Pressing the upper button will make the collar give a
Momentary (or 'Nick') Stimulation. Pressing the lower
button gives a Continuous Stimulation. These buttons
are the same on every model of the H2 0 series.
Collar Selection Switch
Switching between collar units can be controlled by
moving the toggle selection switch to the desired unit.
Vibration Buttons
(H 2 0 1820 PLUS only)
Pressing the button on the left (#1) of the transmitter
will make the collar vibrate only. Pressing the button
on the right (#2) of the transmitter will make the collar
vibrate only for half a second, and then adds simultaneous Continuous Stimulation to the Vibration.
Jump Button
(H 20 1830 PLUS only)
Pressing the button on the left (#1) of the transmitter
will make the collar give a 'Jump' Stimulation. This
feature makes the intensity level instantly "jump" to a
user-programmed intensity level (see page 19).
Rise Button
(H 2 0 1830 PLUS only)
Pressing the button on the right (#2) of the transmitter
will make the collar give a stimulation that gradually
increases in intensity level the longer the 'Rise' button
is pressed.
Locate and Run/Point Buttons
(H 2 0 1850 PLUS only)
Pressing the 'Locate' button on the left side (#1) of the
Transmitter will make the Collar Receiver beep.
Pressing the 'Run/Point' button on the right side (#2)
of the Transmitter will activate the Run & Point mode
on the Collar Receiver. Pressing the button again will
change the mode to the Point Only mode. Pressing
the 'Locate' button will cancel the Run/Point modes.
Battery Charging Receptacles
The battery charging receptacles are located on the
side of the Transmitter and on the side of the Collar
Receiver facing the dog's neck. After charging,
always close the jack with the rubber plug to prevent
foreign particles from getting inside the unit.
The unit is still waterproof even if water gets into the charging receptacle. However, if water should get in, we recommend rinsing out the charging receptacle and allowing it to
dry, especially after use in salt water. This will prevent premature corrosion in the metal pins inside that make contact
with the charger plug.
Collar Indicator Light
When the Collar Receiver is turned on, the Red LED
light will flash steadily once every two seconds to
indicate that the unit is active. The Red LED light
changes to a rapid flash when the battery is in need of
charging. The Red LED light stays lit while plugged
into the charger.
Contacts should fit snugly against the dog's neck to
ensure good contact with the skin. For more
information on the proper fit of the collar, see page 17.
Beeper Horn
(H 2 0 1850 PLUS only)
The Beeper horn is attached to the collar belt. It will
emit a loud tone audible from up to 450 yards away.
Collar Belt with MAXX-Range ™ Antenna
The embedded collar antenna is woven into the collar
belt, and runs along the entire length of the belt.
If your collar belt is too long, we recommend looping the
excess collar belt back around through the buckle. We DO
NOT recommend cutting the collar belt. Cutting the collar
belt too much will drastically reduce the range of your collar
unit. However, the collar belt can be cut up to about 3
inches without affecting the range too much.
All H2 0 PLUS Series ™ units are equipped with
rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries.
NiMH batteries are not memory sensitive and do not
require depletion before recharging.
The batteries come partially charged from the factory.
However, it is recommended that the batteries are
given a full charge (about 12 hours) before initial use.
Remember - Always keep batteries away from
flammable substances (especially when charging).
When storing the unit for long periods, remember to
regularly give the batteries a full charge (12 hours)
and test your unit once every 4 to 6 weeks.
Battery Charging Procedure
1. Make sure the unit is off.
2. Plug the charger into a
standard electrical outlet.
3. Connect the splitter cable to
the charger and plug the
ends into the appropriate
units (small end in transmitter, large end in collar).
4. Charge the batteries for up to 12 hours. This can be
done either separately or simultaneously.
5. After charging, disconnect the battery charging
cables from the receptacles, securely replace the
rubber battery receptacle covers, and test unit.
Rechargeable batteries typically last about 2-5 years on average depending on use and care. Do not overcharge your
unit (12 hour maximum charge time). Do not store your unit
without a charge for extended periods of time. Do not store
your unit in extreme heat/cold or moist/humid conditions.
The Transmitter is always in a permanent sleep state.
It is only ON when a button is being pressed and does
not need to be turned off by the user.
Turning the Collar Unit On:
Press and hold the On/Off button. The Red LED
Indicator will light solid for a second. Release the
button when the LED light begins to flash. The unit is
now ON, and the LED light will flash approximately
every two seconds.
Turning the Collar Unit Off:
Press and hold the On/Off button. The Red LED
Indicator will light solid for a second. Release the
button when the LED light begins to flash. The unit is
now OFF, and the LED will no longer flash.
If the Red LED light on the transmitter flashes rapidly after
any button is pressed, or if the LED light on the collar unit
flashes rapidly while ON, the unit will need to be recharged.
If the LED light flashes rapidly soon after a full charging session, the rechargeable batteries may need to be replaced.
NOTE: Before testing, make sure that both units are fully
charged and the power to the Collar Receiver is "ON".
To Test the Electronic Stimulation:
A) Place the tester firmly on the
contacts of the Collar Receiver.
B) Set the intensity (note - an intensity
level setting of 4 or less might not be
enough to light the tester).
C) Push the 'NICK' or 'CONT' button.
D) The tester light will quickly flash once when the
Nick button is pushed and light repeatedly when the
Continuous Stimulation button is pushed (the test
light will be brighter at higher intensity levels).
To Test the Vibration:
(H 2 0 1820 PLUS only)
A) Press the button on the left side of the transmitter
(Vibrate button) and the collar unit will vibrate only.
B) Press the button on the right side of the transmitter
(Vib. +Stim. Button) and the unit will vibrate only for
1/2 a second. The tester will then light while vibrating at the same time.
To Test the Jump:
(H 2 0 1830 PLUS only)
A) Press the button on the left side of the transmitter
(Jump button) and test light brightness will reflect
the user-programmed Jump level (see page 19).
B) The intensity level will return to its original setting
when the Jump button is released.
To Test the Rise:
(H 2 0 1830 PLUS only)
A) The Rise feature will gradually increase the intensity level starting from the level set on your dial.
To see a greater range of intensity change, set the
intensity dial to a lower level.
8) Press and hold the button on the right side of the
transm itter (Rise button) and the test light will get
brighter as the button is held.
To Test the Beeper:
(H 2 0 1850 PLUS only)
A) Press the button located on the left side of the
transmitter (Locate button). The collar will beep
any time this button is pressed.
8) Press the button on the right side of the transmitter
(Run/Point button) to activate the Run & Point
mode. Press the button again to change to Point
Only mode. In the Run & Point mode, the collar
will beep every 4-5 seconds while shaking the
collar unit (simulating a dog on the run), and every
1-2 seconds when keeping the collar unit
motionless (simulating your dog on point). In the
Point only mode, the collar will beep only when the
collar unit remains motionless.
C) Press the 'Locate' button to cancel these modes.
NOTE: If the collar unit is not responding to any signals from
the transmitter, the collar may need to be reprogrammed to
the transmitter (see page 16).
When adding an "Add-On" collar, the collar will need
to be programmed to the transmitter. If your current
collar unit is not responding to the transmitter, it may
also need to be reprogrammed to the transmitter.
1. Select the desired Collar Selecting Switch position
on the transmitter.
2. Press and hold the power button on the collar like
the colfar unit is being turned ON.
3. A small red light inside the Collar Receiver will
light up solid for about 1 second, followed by several flashes. Do not let go of the button during this
4. Continue to hold the button until the LED light
stays on solid. The Collar Receiver is now in the
Code Running Mode (the LED light will stay lit for
approximately 8 seconds while it is in this mode).
5. Release the Collar Receiver button and press the
NICK and CONT buttons simultaneously while it is
in the Code Running Mode.
6. When the LED light blinks 3 times, the Collar ID is
programmed and the Collar Receiver is now ON.
NOTE - Do not release the button on the Collar
Receiver until after the LED light stops flashing
and stays on solid or the Collar Receiver will not
go into the Code Running Mode. The NICK and
CO NT buttons must be pressed simultaneously
while the LED light is lit solid or the Collar Receiver will not be programmed.
NOTE: Proper collar tightness and
position are very important to insure
safe and consistent collar use.
All electronic collars need to be
very snug around the dog's neck
to work properly. They must be
just tight enough to allow the
"contacts" or electrodes to make
good contact on your dog's skin.
If the collar is too loose, the
stimulation may not work properly because good/
consistent skin contact is not being achieved. This
can directly affect the performance of the collar unit
and whether or not the dog will receive the stimulation .
Always check for good contact to the skin if it appears
that your dog is not responding to the stimulation. A
loose collar can also result in skin irritations from
moving or rubbing too much against your dog 's neck
while they are running or training. A proper fit will help
prevent this from occurring .
• Place the collar unit high and tight on your dog's
neck with the collar receiver box centered below the
neck. Placing it at the wider base of the neck can
let it travel up to the narrower part of the neck while
your dog is moving, loosening as it goes .
• It should be tight enough to fit two fingers between
the collar belt and your dog's neck, but not tight
enough to restrict your dog's breathing.
It is very important to set the correct intensity level on
your H2 0 PLUS Training System before beginning
your training sessions to provide the proper level of
stimulation without over-stimulating your dog.
To do this, place the Intensity Selection dial so that the
system is set on Level 1. Turn on the Collar and then
fit it properly around your dog's neck. Press either the
'NICK' or tHE? 'CONT' Button and check for a reaction .
Indications of your dog feeling the stimulation include
outward signs of discomfort or confusion on it's face,
ears perking up, changes in tail movements, etc.
Increase the Intensity Level in increments of one until
the dog feels the stimulation. At this point, increase
the Intensity Level by one or two. This should be your
dog's ideal training level. (Note: Some dogs may
require more or less stimulation depending upon
their individual temperament and/or Size.)
Using the Rise Stimulation:
(H 2 0 1830 PLUS only)
The Rise function will gradually increase your current
intensity level up to the maximum intensity level (level
16) while the rise button is being pressed. The intensity level will return to its original setting when the button is released. This can essentially let your dog determine the correct intensity level for any situation by
letting him choose which level to respond to once it
rises to that level. CAUTION: Do not press and hold
unless you can see your dog's actions/reactions.
Jump stimulation is a great feature when regularly using two different stimulation levels in training . It is also
a great safety tool for emergency situations when your
dog is excited and cannot feel or ignores the normal
intensity level. Pressing the Jump button directly
rather than increasing the intensity level manually will
save precious time during these situations when your
dog may be heading towards imminent danger.
Setting the Jump Stimulation Level:
(H 2 0 1830 PLUS only)
1. Set the intensity level to your desired Jump level.
2. On the transmitter, press and hold buttons #1 and
#2 ('Jump' and 'Rise' buttons) simultaneously.
3. When you see the LED flashing, release both buttons. The number of times the LED light flashes
represents the newly programmed Jump Stimulation level.
The Jump intensity setting will stay at this level until a
different Jump level is programmed. Changing your
normal intensity level will not affect the Jump setting.
When applying the Jump stimulation, the intensity
level will return to its normal setting when the Jump
button is released.
o avoid accidentally stimulating your dog, please make
sure that the collar is NOT on the dog while setting the
'ump level. If the two buttons are not pushed at the EXACT
same time, you will run the risk of emitting a stimulation.
It is very important to periodically clean your H2 0
PLUS Series ™ systems for maximum performance.
Regular cleaning will also lengthen the life of your unit.
• Clean the H20 PLUS Series ™ collar box with
lukewarm water and a mild anti-bacterial soap.
• Take care to thoroughly clean the space between
the electrodes and the belt.
• The belt and buckle should be cleaned with water
and a mild soap then allowed to dry completely.
• Always allow the entire unit to completely dry before
It is recommended that the collar unit be rinsed with fresh,
clean water after use in wet conditions, especially salt water.
To get the maximum performance and life out of your
rechargeable batteries:
• Do not charge your batteries for more than 12 hours
at a time.
• Fully charge and test your unit about once a month
when storing your unit for an extended period of
time .
• Do not store your unit in extremely hot or cold
• Store your unit in a dry environment.
• Before training , your dog should be examined by a
veterinarian to assure that your dog is in good
• Never leave your dog unattended with the unit
on. Since no electronic device is perfect, there is a
very slight possibility that your dog may receive an
unintentional electric stimulation.
• Your H2 0 PLUS Series ™ training collar is a very
valuable tool if used correctly. It is extremely
important that you completely understand all the
functions of the collar and how to properly train with
it before placing it on your dog.
• The electrodes on this collar are made with high
grade stainless steel to help prevent any chemical
or allergic reactions with your dog 's skin.
• To prevent neck irritations. the collar should
never be worn for more than 12 hours a day.
Changing the collar location on the dog's neck daily
will also help prevent irritations. It is important to
keep the collar clean. Clean the electrodes '
regularly with a mild anti-bacterial soap.
• If an irritation is found, carefully wash the dog's neck
with soap and water and then wipe the area with
Hydrogen peroxide. Dry thoroughly and apply an
antibiotic ointment.
