Review of the SportDog SD-425 Dog Training Collar
Electronic collars are among the most commonly used training tools for gun dogs thanks to their effectiveness and versatility. Here, the SportDog Field Trainer SD-425 will be reviewed.
SportDog SD-425 Product Description
The SportDog Field Trainer SD-425 is a fully customizable training collar that is intuitively designed. There are seven operation modes which can be adjusted to the individual training needs of your dogs. There are 7 levels of both momentary and continuous stimulation available, as well as 7 customizable programs. Tone and vibration modes are also an option.
Switching between modes during training sessions is simple, allowing you to use a different type of training program on up to 3 dogs simultaneously. Each training collar has two settings – low or medium – which controls the level of correction experienced by your dog. The low setting is ideal for sensitive animals that respond well to correction, while the medium setting is for use with stubborn dogs. Having the ability to adjust the collar, as opposed to making adjustments to the transmitter with a toggle switch, is a welcome feature that streamlines training.
Unlike some training collars, there is no loss of correction strength or range when additional collars are controlled with one transmitter. The SportDog Field Trainer SD-425 has 500 yard range which makes this product perfect for working indoors, in the backyard, or with close-working gun dogs in the field. Thanks to DryTek technology, both the receiver and transmitter are waterproof and submersible to 25 feet.
What are the Advantages of SportDog SD-425?
This advanced training collar was recently described by Gun Dog Magazine as having a “flawless design,” which is an incredible honor for a training product. The customizability of this product is one of its greatest advantages. This product is also one of the best training collars for sensitive dogs due to the “low” stimulation setting and gentle increases in stimulation strength.
What are the Limitations of SportDog SD-425?
Few limitations exist for the SportDog Field Trainer SD-425. However, some users might find the 500 yard range prohibitive if they work with long-range retrievers or gun dogs.
Who Can Benefit Most from SportDog SD-425?
Anyone who is looking for an intuitively designed training collar that is also versatile and designed with the needs of more sensitive dogs in mind can benefit from the SportDog Field Trainer SD-425.
Who Benefits Least from SportDog SD-425?
Dog owners who require a longer range than 500 yards will not benefit from this product.
Ultimately if you are looking for a product that is highly regarded among gun dog professionals that is easy to use and fully customizable, the SportDog Field Trainer SD-425 is a great option.
