    What's New in the SportDOG SD-425XS Stubborn

  • Up to 21 levels of continuous STIM or 7 levels of momentary STIM with either non-stimulating tone or vibration (depending on transmitter mode)
  • Backward-compatible with previous SD-425 series remote collars

  • The SportDOG Field Trainer SD 425XS is SportDOG's smallest and lightest e-collar. The 425XS is designed for those strong-willed and high-drive dogs that need a little extra stimulation to get their attention.

  • Both the transmitter and receiver are waterproof and submersible.

  • The 425XS 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.

  • The No-look design allows you to keep an eye your dog and not on your transmitter.

  • You can customize your SportDOG Field Trainer SD-425XS to match your training preference. It comes set up in MODE-5 (a 21-level continuous one dog collar with non-stimulation tone), but it can easily be changed into 7 different modes with different button configurations.

  • Gun Dog Supply Exclusive: One Hour BASIC OBEDIENCE Ecollar Training Video

      SportDOG Fieldtrainer SD-425XS Stubborn Dog Remote Training Collar$40 Value -- You get this FOR FREE when you buy this ecollar.

      We are proud to announce that Professional Dog Trainer Robin MacFarlane is working with us! We just wrapped another video shoot, and are launching her latest DVD.

      PREVIEW: Watch a 10-minute Preview here...

      What's interesting about these videos is that Robin has never worked with these dogs before, and several younger dogs have never been trained on an ecollar.

      First, Robin walks you through the basic obedience commands showing what proper form looks like.

      Next, Robin shows how she introduces the ecollar to two of Steve's puppies, Jack & Tilly, and shows you how to find the right STIM level to communicate with your dog.

      She then turns that into a lesson for your dog to recognize that STIM means pay attention to your handler and expands that into a basic recall.

      Additional segments include teaching RECALL, PLACE, SIT, and HEEL.

      Exclusively available at Gun Dog Supply.

    SportDOG SD-425XS Stubborn

    Steve Says:

    Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE

    One hour of BASIC OBEDIENCE training
    from Pro Trainer Robin MacFarlane.

    The 425XS is the replacement for the SD 425S. The "X" version adds two 21-level STIM button configurations (transmitter MODES 5 and 6) for more increments between levels with either non-stimulating tone or vibration options.

    The features of the 425XS include:

  • Up to 21 levels of STIM depending on transmitter mode
  • Higher stimulation levels for more stubborn dogs
  • Rapid 2 hour charge
  • Collar mode selection options for sensitive and regular dogs
  • Smaller collar
  • Tone and Vibration options
  • Multi dog modes that include Tone or Vibration on the dial, allowing you to use tone or vibration when in a two or three dog set up

    The 425XS is a great collar for obedience work, retrievers and flushers. It's going to quickly become one of our best sellers in its category.

    The 425 has been our best selling collar under $200 for the last few years, and the 425XS makes that system even more versatile. It is an awesome system for folks that don't need a lot of range but want a full-featured system for working close to medium range dogs.

    We've purchased this line of ecollar for our dogs for more that 10 years, and via gundogsupply every time. We've even had good results with the replacement battery sets for these ecollars. Well built and depenable.

    The Snells and their team run a good site, and I'm still impressed with the time they take to test, review and compare their offerings. They've earned our business for sure.
    • Easy/comfortable to use. Long lasting battery, long charge duration. Actual charging time is reasonable too.
    • No cons.

    Having a trainer to use with my dog has been a huge boost. He has already started to stay closer to home and returns for his "excursions" when called, so I don't have to go wondering in the woods at night to get him home.

    Two new big dogs came to live at my house recently, and my small terrier mix wasn't happy. But with the e- collar things are going great. It's easy to use and brings the desired results.

    I have a 10 month old working line German Shepherd. I needed something to give me more control when she sees something she thinks needs to be chased. I bought a cheap shock collar, and she didn't even feel it. With this one, i can have it on a fairly low setting and still get her attention. Her behavior has improved so much since I got this collar, even when she isn't wearing it. I no longer have to worry about her getting kicked by a horse, because she's trying to chase them or worry about her taking off if we accidentally scare a deer while we're out hiking.

    The collar works well. When doing basic training: sit, stay, come and down, I never have to use a setting beyond 2. The dog responds well and the training carries over to when I don't use the shock collar. It is water proof. Unlike my previous collar, this one worked fine after it was repeatedly immersed in the ocean. Range is great. I've used it as far as 200 yards, without a problem. Now for the cons. I'm using this collar on a pit bull. He's a two year old male. If the dog engages with another dog, even a level 7 shock won't get his attention. So if you want to stop a dog fight, this thing won't work. Having said that, there are other techniques to prevent a dog fight. A shock collar is not one of them.
    • Great distance.
    • Water proof.
    • Batteries last entire day.
    • Very easy to use.
    • Two preset buttons are very convenient.
    • Will not stop a dog fight.

    Works great for stubborn dogs
    September 15, 2021
    We had to upgrade from a more basic e-collar with our stubborn 10 month doberman, on the advice of our trainer. This collar has worked so much better with training and we are very happy with it. Also appreciated the super fast shipping.
    • Works great, consistently, has buckle to ensure proper fit. Game changer for our dog's behavior.
    • Definitely high powered so there has been some contact irritation even though we have only used the higher settings as needed and then reduced back down to the lowest.

    Sport Dog Field Trainer SD-425XS works for my Dogs and Me!
    September 7, 2021
    I have purchased a few of these units. The XS model is whats required for stuborn dogs.
    The units work well and are easy to use. Garman got this product right.
    Good for yard use and nearby distances. Perfect for obiedence corrections.
    • Good battery life. 3 Collars can be keyed to a single remote. Affordable price. Decent quality.
    • I haven't found any negatives. I like the product.

    First, this is what we needed. Our dog is being worked daily and I'd consider her a late bloomer. It wasn't until we started using our E-Collar in conjunction with the trainer that she really began to pay attention... (Can dogs have ADHD?) I can now walk her off leash, let her in the yard with supervision but no worry attached!!

    This SportDog for stubborn dogs was new to us. I like how it fits, the multi-level system. We never go beyond a #2 and mostly use #1 on the medium setting. This works very well and I would recommend to anyone. I don't think there is a down side except maybe the charging system is not what I am used to.

    Beyond that, we have used Gun Dog Supply consistently for several years now and they are AWESOME~!! Always friendly, always helpful, always prompt. They deliver and beyond. Their customer service is Top of the Line.
    Thanks guys...keep up the good work.

    I have already recommended it to several people and given them Gun Dog Supply as the only place to purchase this!!
    • Well made
    • Easy to put on and take off
    • Works consistently on my dog
    • Delivers what it is designed to do
    • Not sure I like the on/off button - I struggle to put the pressure in exactly the right spot...
    • The charging mechanism. I prefer the Garmin charging set up but can't get everything the way you like. I am glad that it works and my dog is happy and safe!!

    Works great for my beagle with a mind of his own
    January 31, 2021
    Great product , this is the third Sport Dog collar I have purchased I’ve been very pleased with all of them
    • Charge holds up very well , plenty of stimulation selections although for my dog who I trained with one of the other sport Dog collars he needs very little stimulation
    By Melanie
    Works great!

    Works great and definitely will handle a stubborn dog.
    • Buttons are nice with easy access. Lanyard is long enough for anyone. Collar is sturdy with a lot of room for adjustment.
    • Dial has to be turned to jog between a warning sound and a shock. For me this is too much time in between and if you have your hands full is very inconvenient.
    By Customer
    Our dogs behave much better.
    September 6, 2020
    We have some Malamute mix, and yes, they can be stubborn. They would bother cattle, our horses, chase all sorts of wildlife when we did not want them do, they would tend to ignore our commands when loose. Boy, what a difference a training collar makes in our dog's behavior. This collar works well, and holds a charge a long time. I like the turn-knob to instantly adjust the shock intensity if needed, even without looking at the unit. I like this better than looking at a LCD screen to change settings. Simple, effective. We definitely made the dogs' learning curve a lot steeper. Very pleased with the results. Extra bonus with the long leash / DVD. Will order more supplies from this company.
    • LIke it. See above.
    • None.
