The SportDog SD-425 Camo is dedicated to waterfowlers and is completely waterproof, submersible and extremely rugged for use with swimming dogs. It also features a very compact size which makes it perfect for smaller dogs or where space is at a premium. Comes with full Realtree Max4 camo finish on collar, transmitter and receiver. The 100% waterproof, very compact and lightweight (3.2 oz.) transmitter will easily fit on a lanyard (supplied) or in a vest pocket. The new SportDog SD-425 Camo can be expanded to control 3 dogs by adding aSportDog Add-A-Dog collar. This collar weighs only 2.8 oz., making it one of the smallest on the market. Tone or vibration is also available in multi-dog use because of the V/T position on intensity dial.

I definitely recommend this system. I use it with my Chocolate Lab that is about 6 months old and he is doing great. After the initial period where he was confused by this thing vibrating on his neck, he put two and two together and now works great off leash. I love that I can vibrate, tone and shock with one collar.
In my two months of testing with my pup, I only found one flaw with the system. The electrical stimulation is very harsh! I can't use any level besides 1 on the momentary setting. If I use anything else he will yelp. The continuous setting hits a lot harder than the momentary so I basically can't use that at all. I can't see any situation that I would ever need to use level 3 let a lone level 7!
*Update 8/21/13 - I emailed SportDog and asked about the intensity levels. They directed me to the exact spot in the manual with instructions on how to lower the intensity. I guess I just never saw that part when reading through the manual.
All in all, still great! Just train your dog to respond to the vibrate or tone and use the electrical as a last resort.

I love this collar system. I only received it this morning but I love it so much I thought I needed to review it based on my initial impressions. Also, seeing as there are only 2 other reviews (as of 4/3/13) I thought another review would be helpful for prospective buyers.
I have owned an SD-400 for about 2 years. It is a great product and I loved it, but always wished it would vibrate instead of beep. When I got a new puppy I wanted to add a collar, however, if I did so I would lose the ability to use the tone feature. I saw this SD-425 Camo and was sold! This is basically just an updated version of the SD-400.
Vibrate feature as well as tone. With only one dog you essentially have 4 features you can do. Tone, continuous, momentary AND vibrate.
Small compact receiver
Light weight transmitter. Only 2.2 oz. I thought it was defective at first because it was so light. I thought they forgot to put my battery inside!
Li Ion batteries!!! Used to take 24 hours to charge the SD-400. Now, only 2!!!
50-70 Hours of use on single charge according to my manual
Outside of transmitter is very slick. My SD-400 has a rubbery feeling to it which I think is better than the SD-425 Camo
Ability to add-a-dog but the additional collars are almost as expensive as an entire system
Not pros or cons:
The lanyard is redesigned. I like how it has a quick detach buckle, however, I liked the old ring and metal clasp. Combine the old lanyard with the new and they will have a winner.
All in all, I love this and am excited to start training my new pup. Based on my experience with the older SD-400 I would recommend this to a friend. If anything changes I will update my review.
