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

    $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.

Read more about SportDOG Contain + Train

    The SportDOG Contain 'n Train system is designed to provide all of the current containment capabilities of the SportDOG In-Ground Fence (SDF-100A) combined with the remote training capabilities of the SportDOG FieldTrainer 425 (SD-425). The containment transmitter produces a radio signal that goes through the included wire to create a boundary to keep your dog safe and contained, while the handheld gives you the ability to remotely train your dog both within the containment area at home, or out in the field -- all with the same e-collar!

Way too Big. Collar is HUGE
November 2, 2021
I Love Sportdog brand. Have used their e-collars for years. And GunDogSupply has the BEST prices and shipping! But this collar is HUGE. I wanted to love this with the ability to both contain and train but this giant thing is just way too LARGE. You can never put this on a small dog. Admittedly it does not weigh much but it's just too freaking BIG. I use the inground fence 100C and love it. I was going to upgrade to this but when I received the system I returned it immediately. Maybe when the technology improves Sportdog can put these features in a smaller receiver.
  • It's sportdog. well made. works well. (though I never plugged this one in, I'm sure it works well as all their other products do)
  • Receive is GIANT!

Easy Install minus the digging
September 17, 2021
Great all in one system. Was easy to install and set up except for putting the wire in the ground, there is no easy way around that especially for a few acres.
  • Easy install, great instructions and training aids

Works so far!
July 8, 2021
We have a very hard headed boxer that loves to eat our kitchens so we tried the wireless system from petsafe and she would run right thru it. This system has enough adjustability to control the most stubborn dog. But with that adjustability comes trial and error until you get it set right. Well made and the 1000ft of wire you get is plenty for a large dog yard. The train controller reaches much further than our old sport dog collar and the collar battery lasts for days and days.

Excellent upgrade

Another fine example of Gun Dog Supply's choice of product offerings.
  • Simple install and use
  • Receivers on collar are a bit large.
