Background

Why I Use SportDOG Brand

I've tried them all, but SportDOG’s price and reliability is what made me decide to go with this line.

Favorite Products

For everyday training I like the SD-2525 because it's convenient. I never have to look down at the transmitter buttons so I can keep my eyes on the dog. Also, it has 9 levels in low, medium, and high stimulation ranges, so I can train a variety of dogs with the same unit. In the field when I'm hunting or guiding, I like the SD-1825. It's small and light, so I can wear it around my neck and it isn't in the way.
