SportDOG Check Cord 5/16"x30'

Steve Says:

Transcript from Steve's Video:

Today we're looking at the SportDOG check cord. We sell a bunch of different kinds of check cords. It's really more of a preference as far as what you like. What I like about this one, it's a rope style check cord. It's designed to be tangle free. And so, in the field it's less likely to get bunched up.

Beyond that, it's a good cord. I like orange cords, especially on birddogs. It makes it easy to see in the field. This one is just a little bit smaller. It's got a smaller snap, so it's going to work with a smaller dog.

Check cords are a big deal. I'm amazed at the number of folks who try to train dogs without them. It's probably the most important thing, especially with a young dog, and prior to making that transition from off leash to e-collar work. A check cord is a key part of that. And so, find one that you like, fits your hands well. I like about a 30 foot cord working with most situations.

This is one of those that's just a good all around, solid piece of gear.

Excellent value
November 22, 2022
I bought this for my English Setter puppy after he chewed the first one in half (totally my fault). it is relatively in-expensive, but very sturdy and durable with a nice amount of give. The dog can drag it through tall grass no-problem, but when he runs into underbrush I usually have to untangle him or get him to recall and then let go of my end. I like this length.
  • This checkcord represents an excellent value. It is durable and well made.
  • This cord usually gets in between my dogs rear legs (not the cord's fault) and when he urinates or defecates (which is often) then it gets on the cord and the material is somewhat absorbent, just be mindful.

Love the new checkcord!
June 29, 2022
My old checkcord was due for replacement so I ordered this one with my new collar for my pup. Overall I am very happy with it thus far. Tangle free doesn't absorb a lot of water and a great bright orange color for improved visibility and a great price. I would highly recommend this cord to anyone!

Durable and Affordable

This is the best check cord I have found on the market. It is extremely durable and lasts forever. 30 feet is a great length for training. Also, the price was very reasonable for the quality of the product.

Good cord. The rubber retaining tape came apart right away but no sweat. Cheaper price than going to the hardware store to make your own.
  • Lightweight
  • Rubber protection for the clasp came apart easily; easy to fix with electrical tape.

The check cord is very high quality and has worked perfectly for training my lab puppy for pheasant and upland game. It doesn’t tangle and moves smoothly through the brush.

Great Dog lead for training
November 6, 2021
I bought my first dog lead from Tom Dokken's dog supply shop. It seemed alright at first, but when I went into the field with weeds & brush the nylon braid had gaps in the weave where it would catch on weeds and snag making nylon loops along the length of the lead. Much happier with this lead. It's more like a mountain climbing rope. It also lays flatter on the ground making it easier for the dog to cross over it without his legs getting tangled in it. And no snags with this one!
  • Well made good materials used.

Great product and tool
May 26, 2021
I’ve owned several Sportdog checkcords over the years. They never disappoint. For young dog training, the cord is light enough that it will rest upon the running dog’s back and not get tangled in his feet. The rope is smooth enough to grab with your bare hands as a dog runs by. The cord has no memory which makes wrapping and storage super easy.

I always get the 30’ in case I need to cut off and repurpose a few feet of cord in a pinch.
  • Well priced
  • No cord memory
  • Smooth texture
  • None

Just what I needed. I was a bit skeptical at first with the shrink-wrap and glued loop on the end where It connects to the buckle. After testing it with my own weight (160lbs) it has held up very nicely for my 70lb lab-bloodhound mix. I would buy again for sure!
