Product Description

The SportDog SD-425s Field Trainer offers all the features of the SD-425, but is an electronic dog collar specially designed for tougher, more stubborn dogs. The Sport Dog 425s is ideal for training in the yard, field, or for hunting with dogs that hunt closely to you but tend to be a little bit stubborn. This unit comes with a transmitter and receiver that are 100% waterproof and submersible up to 25 ft. It comes with 16 levels of continuous or momentary stimulation and can be expanded up to 3 dogs by simply adding SportDog Brand Add-A-Dog collars. It also features a tone or vibration that is available in multi-dog use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but beware it might be too powerful June 12 2013
By Scott Banfield - Published on Amazon.com

I really like everything about this unit and it seems to work great so far in the short time I've had it. The book that comes with it is very well written and really helps you understand how to use this the right way. The DVD was not as good as the book but I'm sure it is very helpful to some. I am only training a family pet not a hunting dog. Unfortunately I have to exchange this for the SD-425 (non stubborn dog) model because it is too powerful for my 65 lb. lab mix. He is not a very tough dog (my last lab had an incredible pain tolerance) but even on the lowest possible setting he jumps every time I hit the nick button. This is a bigger reaction than you should be looking for under normal training conditions. I have not even used the continuous stimulation button.

I only give 4 stars because there is a very important feature on this unit and the SD-425 that is not highlighted in the product description. Had I known about it I would have bought the SD-425 the first time. You can program 2 different power settings into these. This model has a medium and high setting. So you have 7 levels of stimulation in medium or 7 levels in high depending on how you set it up. The SD-425 (non stubborn) model has a low level and medium level. So if you're concerned that the SD-425 might not be enough for your dog you have the option to program the unit to medium power which gives you 7 higher levels of stimulation equal to the SD-425s (on medium setting). This is a very important feature and should be clearly explained in the product description. In fact it is not mentioned at all in the SD-425s description.

So even though my dog has a lower pain tolerance he's not a complete wimp. Given that he's a 65 lb. lab and the lowest possible setting is too much I'd say this unit is very powerful. I think the SD-425 (non stubborn dog) model with the ability to up the stimulation levels to medium power would be enough for almost any dog.

One final note...I've noticed reviews on many of the "e collars" where people claim they don't work no matter what level they set it to. Chances are there is nothing wrong with the collar. They just don't have it tight enough. If the prongs do not go through the fur and make contact with the dogs skin the dog does not get any stimulation. It has to be pretty snug and you may even have to shave the length of hair down where the collar sits on the neck. I found when the collar was not quite tight enough it would either work intermittently or not at all. I would have to snug it up by a hole or two and then it would work perfectly. This was the same with the last one of these I had (different brand) for my previous dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best money I ever spent. The results were nothing short of amazing Oct. 9 2013

I have a yellow lab. I consider him extremely intelligent and has at least a 10 to 20 word vocabulary. Come, Stay, Sit, Wait, Gentile, No, Come, Show me the drill, (He runs into his create for a treat) Down, Stop, Play, Go get it, and a few others. He fetches well in the back yard. In the front yard forget it. One note: he is also a rescue. (Last stop) so to speak. I figure as a result of his abuse as a puppy he was quite a handful. Long story short, after 2 years "Tugger" was not the same dog we brought home. Much improved but still some issues with guests and especially food. We had some success, but some behaviors still persisted. Bolting out the front door for one. Running in front of moving vehicles, chasing cars, people, kids on bikes. On a leash he was also problematic. We tried chokers, harnesses etc.. I also had a problem with the Mrs... even ordering this, but for the sake of the dog I needed to try something else. When it arrived I followed all the instructions and let it charge over night. The following morning I even tried all the settings on myself. Getting up past 4 was painful. 7 was downright painful, but at least I had a understanding of what he would experience. My results: After putting the collar on Tugger. I hit the tone then the vibrate while still in the house so I could see his reaction. I wish I had video becasue it was a riot. Opened the front door and off he went like a gazelle. He ran right into the street. When I called him and pressed the tone button, nothing. Called him again and pressed the vibrate, nada.. Not even lifted his head in acknowledgement. I quickly spun the dial to 7, gave another command which was ignored as well and let him have it! I swear he jumped 6 feet in the air. I called "TUGGER" again and he immediately came to my side. I told him to sit which was so immediate it made a thump when his butt hit the ground. I said "OK lets go" and I started walking. I think I gave him one shot at the 1 setting during our 2 mile walk. He stayed close and healed on command. He stayed right by my side. Fast forward 2 months. He is still a bit rushed out the door but will wait till I cross the threshold if I insist. But he doesn't leave the porch without me. When I grab the collar he gets all excited because it means we are going for a walk. There was a time when the kids put the collar on him but forgot to turn it on. We went for our usual 2 mile walk without issue. When we got back home i took the collar off and thats when I noticed it wasn't even turned on. Our walks are fun and we both enjoy it now. We regularly go to the park up the street and regardless if there are dogs or people around he looks to me for permission to venture too from my side. From day one with this device the transformation was instantaneous. I wish I hadn't waited so long before getting it. If he ventures to far from me a simple "COME" and a press of the tone button and he immediately responds without hesitation. That's my experience. great device. Humane, quick results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for stubborn dog June 27 2013

This thing is great. LONG battery life, great range, and many options for strength that works perfectly for a very stubborn Wheaton Terrier. Used this to curb the last couple of behaviors that we couldn't get rid of with positive reinforcement.

I tried one of the cheap $40 collars first - what a waste of time - no battery life and never even phased the dog.

I have a 107 lb Rottweiler who would not come when called when off leash no matter how much training we did. With this collar and a few days training, she's a new dog! We worried about her chasing deer in the woods, so she was always on a lead. Now, a simple beep, sometimes followed by a quick vibrate does the trick! She comes running. I've had to shock her when she was on the scent of a deer, but only on the lowest setting. Wish I had bought it sooner!
