Hunts. I love it. Turned him from being extremely disobedient and unfocused to a focused, obedient hunting buddy. He now retrieves and stays by my side, don't think I could've done it without the collar. Love it, best dang thing I bought in a long time, well worth it.

Hunts. I was skeptical that there was any collar that had enough voltage for my wide open 2 year-old. He does great with the 425 and I don't have to go above low range, level 2 about 90% of the time. Great product!

I am very happy with the SD 425 collar. The collar is easy to use if you follow the manuals. The transmitter is pre-set (although you can change settings if you desire) and has been a great addition to my dogs training. Thank you!

Hunts. Family pet. Very happy with this collar. Had one of the sport dogs earlier models for my last dog. Was a horrible unit. Shorted out in my hand and left two burn marks on my palm. This new collar is by far a superior unit over the older models. It's great for charging and with perfect range. Well done!

Customer Review #5084
By: Gregory Bingham From CA
Lab. Hunts. Competes. I have always been a loyal Tri-Tronics customer because of their great reliability and ease of use. But, after my son dropped and lost one G3 Sport and one Pro100 transmitter in the marsh while hunting, it was time for a transmitter that was smaller, easier to secure in a pocket, and was waterproof. He loves it! So far it has been problem free and meets all his needs in the duck blind. I also like that the metal buckles are already black. No matter what type of paint I use to blacken the Tri-Tronics silver buckles, it rubs off easily. If this collar holds up performs well for the rest of the season, I plan on buying another on for my dog when we are hunting together.

Hunts. Family pet. This is my second SportDog brand collar purchase. The previous one lasted 3 years and was a good product. The new one I purchased is even better. Lighter weight, quicker charge, and better lanyard for the remote. I absolutely love it and have recommended this brand to several of my dog loving friends. All have had the same great outcome using this product. All in all, I highly recommend it!!

Hunts. I've used other training collars and was recommended this one by my breeder and could not believe the difference a generic collar and this one have. The quality of the receiver and ease of use on the remote are top notch. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to use as a training tool or any serious wetland hunter.

Perfect for my lab in training for upland and wetland hunting. The vibrate mode is all you need most of the time to help regain the dogs attention if they are going astray. The beep works great to let the dog know it is doing a good job if it out of range of hearing you well.

"Fits neatly in my palm and in my pocket."
Family pet. There is a short delay between using a button and the delivery, which I found to be odd, but consistent with the brand. I am still working on how much the impulse changes between stimulation levels, and it appears the receiver has to be tight on the skin or may not be felt. I like the transmitter options, and the size is great for around town or close work. Fits neatly in my palm and in my pocket.

The SportDOG Wetland Hunter SD 425 is specially designed for tougher, more stubborn dogs. The Camo SD-425 is ideal for training in the yard, field, or for hunting with close-working dogs that require a slightly higher stimulation collar. Both the transmitter and receiver are waterproof and submersible.
The 425 can be expanded to control up to three dogs by adding SportDOG Brand Add-A-Dog collars. The comfortable "soft coat" transmitter finish makes this unit a pleasure to handle.
You can customize your SportDOG Wetland Hunter SD-425 Camo to match your training preference. It comes set up in MODE-1 (a 7-level continuous + 7-level momentary stimulation one dog collar with non-stimulation tone button), but it can easily be changed into 7 different modes with different button configurations.
The SportDOG WetlandHunter SD-425 Camo is an officially licensed Ducks Unlimited product, and SportDOG will donate a portion of each sale of its Wetland Hunter series of training collars to Ducks Unlimited. "Our Wetland Hunter products have been popular with DU members, and we have donated numerous units to DU fundraisers over the past few years," said Lance Tracy, SportDOG Brand Director. "Conservation is a major focus for the people at SportDOG. This partnership better defines our relationship with Ducks Unlimited and allows us to give something back to an organization whose work benefits us and so many of our customers."
