Why I Use SportDOG®
I’ve been with SportDOG Brand® since 2003. Since that time, I’ve watched SportDOG grow from a fairly young company to one of the leading e-collar producers in the business. Their products were designed by trainers and hunters who know how to develop a high-quality, reliable and durable e-collar. SportDOG is what we use at Webb Footed Kennels, Inc. on a daily basis.
I use the ProHunter 2525 during training, because it’s easy to use and the remote’s slim design is makes it easy to stow in my pocket. I switch to the WetlandHunter 1825 while hunting because the remote is east to hook on my waders and I always knows where it is.
