When you buy your first ecollar you have to make a number of choices:
Do I want to train with continuous stimulation or momentary?
Do I want Vibration or Tone?
What if I want BOTH vibration and Tone?
How much Range do I really need?
How many dogs will I want to control from one transmitter?
Do I need a regular stimulation collar or does my dog require a stronger stimulation level?
Is the collar's stimulation too strong for my dog?
What if I have a mild temperament dog and another one that requires a much higher stimulation level?
What if I need a different level for a softer dog?
It can be hard to make some of these decisions since many of our customers have never USED a training collar before.
I only use continuous stimulation, but you might prefer momentary. What if you THINK you want momentary and you buy a collar
that only has a momentary heavy setup, and then find out 6 months later that you really prefer to train with continuous? If you go with some brands of ecollars, you are out of luck.
The SportDOG 1825 gives you the option of customizing your system to fit YOUR needs. It also allows you the option of changing the setup as your needs change or if you want different options in different situations.
The SportDOG SD 1825 may just be a revolution in ecollar technology. 5 years ago SportDOG came on the market and gave us features that the older ecollar companies had refused to add to their systems. If it were not for SportDOG we would not have waterproof transmitters or expandable multi dog systems. The next time you drop your transmitter in the water, make sure you thank the boys at SportDOG for forcing the other companies to step up.
Now SportDOG has done it again putting the highest level of versatility in a long range e-collar.
The Sport Hunter SD1825 is an incredibly versatile training collar and a good choice for all-around use.
The SportDOG SD 1825 is designed for a wide range of dog handlers including pet owners, obedience trainers, bird hunters, rabbit hunters, and waterfowl hunters.
The SD-1825 features 1 mile of range, a slim profile collar receiver that ensures a perfect fit, and a compact transmitter that's easy to handle. You are also able to expand your one dog system up to a 6 dog unit with the "Add-A-Dog" feature. And it's waterproof!

SportDOG SD-1825 3-Dog Transmitter (Remote)
Waterproof transmitter -- It's submersible, too! Drop the transmitter in the water, fish it out, and keep on training. Perfect for retriever training.
Rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries -- They're user replaceable, too. Heavy duty. They last 3-5 years with proper care.
It's smart -- The SD-1825 has a Low Battery Detect Indicator to make sure you don't get out in the field with a dead battery, and a built-in LED Battery Charge Indicator which lets you know when your transmitter is finished charging.
No holster required -- The SD-1825 transmitter is small enough to hang on a lanyard or clip on your belt with the built in Belt Clip.
It's about the size of a small walkie-talkie or large cell phone -- The compact SD-1825 remote transmitter only weighs 4.8 ounces and measures 7" x 2.12" x 1.12" with antenna.
The "SportHunter" SD-1825 transmitter is ergonomic and feels as good as it looks. The high-impact plastic with "no-slip grip" fits in the palm of your hand. Matte black finish with safety-orange trim.
Built-in TOGGLE SWITCH -- Easy to upgrade to up to 6 dogs. Select between color-coded straps when using with more than one dog.
The SportDOG 1825 gives you the option of customizing the transmitter to fit YOUR needs. It also allows you the option of changing the stimulation setup as your needs change or if you want different options in different situations.
You have two transmitter settings in 3 dog mode. The first option is 8 levels of continuous and momentary. The other option is 8 levels of continuous with vibration.
In a 1 or 2 dog setup, modes include Continuous, Momentary, Tone, Vibration, Low Continuous-High Continuous, Low Momentary - High Momentary, tone with stimulation delay, +2 jump level, and a programmable continuous hot button.
Change MODES in seconds by setting the transmitter dial and toggle switch to the mode you want. Next press the recessed
button on the back of the transmitter. The transmitter light then flashes back the number of the mode you have selected. Modes can be changed as often as you like. Change them for different situations or training styles.
SportDOG SD-1825 3-Dog Collar
The SD 1825 features a slim-profile collar design. The 1825 collar is designed to fit closer to your dog's neck and give a better profile look. The SD-1825 uses a 3/4 inch collar strap. It is smaller than any collar receiver in its price and feature range.

Another feature in the 1825 collar is the ability to change stimulation settings at the collar. The collar has a low, medium and high setting. This allows you the option of finding the correct range of stimulation for your dog. Lower the overall stimulation choices for more sensitive dogs and raise the levels for hard headed or stubborn ones.
You can change the collar setting at any time. You can also have collars set up on different levels and work them from the same transmitter. This allows you the option of working sensitive and stubborn dogs from the same transmitter.
