Customer Review #2940
By: Frank BGerman Shorthair
. Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Cant beat this collar for the price. Has every feature you could want in an ecollar for a great price. The transmitter is well built and very sturdy. Buttons are big and easy to locate even with gloves on. You can program the buttons to do just about anything you want. Vibrate/tone/27 levels of stimulation all easy accessible and easy to program each collar.
The only thing I dont like is there is nowhere on the transmitter to attach a lanyard. I like to hook it onto my belt for safety and there is no ring or anywhere to put a lanyard onto it. I wrapped mine in orange duct tape in case I drop it and bought a holster.

SportDOG SD-2525 Overview:
SportDOG has redefined the meaning of "classic" by meshing the ProHunter's traditional transmitter design with the advanced features incorporated into their latest e-collars. The ProHunter SD 2525 is a workhorse system with a two mile range that fits with virtually every sporting breed.
You can customize your SportDOG SD-2525 to match your training preferences. It comes set up with 27 levels of continuous stimulation for one or two dogs with a non-stimulation tone button plus vibration selectable on the dial, but it can easily be changed into 17 different modes with different button configurations. The low continuous stimulation levels and gradual increases between levels on the SD 2525 are particularly useful with sensitive dogs or breeds.
