"Allows Toby to run free over our meadow, full speed, burning up his 9 month old puppy energy."

Allows Toby to run free over our meadow, full speed, burning up his 9 month old puppy energy. Afterwards he is much easier to train.

"This is an upgrade for me, and so far I am happy with it. This is very versatile. Has great battery life, and it does work."



By: Paul Dougherty From MA
This is an upgrade for me, and so far I am happy with it. This is very versatile. Has great battery life, and it does work. The only things that could be better are the collar strap and the antenna. The strap is clumsy and stiff, and the antenna can become loose. Neither should be a deal breaker.

" It took about a week of de-bolting training on a long line with the SD collar. He's now off-leash and back to work all day with no problems."



By: Cynthia Acosta From NC
Family pet.
Love this collar. My 18 month old un-neutered male lab works with me all day at our horse rehabilitation farm. He had started bolting every time I let him out. He would actually leave the farm and end up in surrounding neighborhoods. Hormones kicking in I'm sure! Was very worried he'd get killed in the road or stolen. It took about a week of de-bolting training on a long line with the SD collar. He's now off-leash and back to work all day with no problems. I like the 1/2 mile range too. If I get busy and lose sight of him it's quite easy, on the farm, for him to get that far away. There have been times I've toned for a full 3-4 mins and then see him come running. I'm sure he was at the back of the property. Very happy to have my dog back by my side! - Cindy Acosta, Terrapin Horse Center, NC

"While our dog is primarily a pet, I have been working him on uplands and the range and response is fantastic."



By: Gfchew
Family pet.
I compared the SportDOG SD-825 to a number of e-collars on-line and bought it based primarily on Steve's recommendation. An excellent collar; however, the training books and videos are important to assure you don't use the e-collar incorrectly. While our dog is primarily a pet, I have been working him on uplands and the range and response is fantastic.

Love this product, as it has really helped to keep my dog safe. After a little practice, my dog has learned to stop chasing vehicles and to stay on our property. I tried this on myself before using on my dog to make sure that I was not hurting him. I rarely have to use it, and feel so much better when my dog is off the leash. Great product!

"So far so good"



By: Terence Kintop From MN
Hunts. Family pet.
Hunting season is over, so just use it for walking my dog in our urban neighborhood, instead of using a leash. So far so good. I had a Sportdog 425 for two years, and it lost it's range less than a year after its first use. The company replaced the collar piece for me. The second one also lost its range. Not sure if it is the battery that needs replacement. Hopefully, the 825 won't give me that problem. What do you think?
Thanks.

"I don't like how narrow the collar strip is. "



By: Ronald E Ferrari From MI

I don't like how narrow the collar strip is. Seems too narrow and cheap, like it may break or tear in short time of use. I had a TriTronic before with a wide 1" collar strap, and it seemed better and lasted a long time.

"Fast delivery and very competitive price"



By: DAVID BERTSCH From TX
Family pet.
My dog Otis is already trained, but can sometimes be very stubborn. We take him out hiking, so he can run off leash. He likes to chase deer and sometimes does not come back very promptly when called with a whistle. It only took a couple of times out with the collar, and he really listens, even with all the distractions of running free outdoors. The video and training pamphlet are excellent. Easy to understand instructions and easy to use control. Fast delivery and very competitive price. Plus you can call Gun Dog Supply if you have any questions or problems with your unit. That was the deciding factor to buy from them.

Used twice in one day. My dog remembers now and stops when he is called, even at a full run. It's such a relief to know my dog won't be road kill because I couldn't stop him. I don't know if I will ever need it again, but it was worth the cost if I never need it again.

By: Nicol Rhea From CA

I had searched long and hard before choosing this collar, and I'm very happy with the results! Gun Dog Supply had the most information and videos as well as customer reviews. I wouldn't purchase anywhere else! It shipped out quickly, and I was updated with the tracking number immediately. The collar arrived ready to go straight out of the box. It works great on my GSD, and after watching the training dvd it came with, and following instructions, my dog learned quickly and positively! Would definitely recommend!

"Highly recommended"



By: Connie Stoney From CO
The compact size of the SD 825 doesn't hinder the usefulness of this handy little collar. Range is great, and love the raised dot on the "tap" momentary stimulus button. Its easy to find when you've got your hands full, but the dog needs that little reminder. Charge life is good and will go 3 or 4 days with all day use. Perfect collar for our small dogs. Highly recommended.

By: Robert Way From AL

This is a very good unit; perfect for my 15 lb dog. It is so light that she pays no attention to it and does not seem to be "collar wise". She reacted instantly and obeyed the one time I had to use it. Since then, her "hearing" seems to have improved dramatically, and she obeys even without the collar.

"Very nicely made product"



By: RB From MA
Family pet.
Good price, quick delivery. Our 10-month old was starting to wander off to visit toward the end of walks, and can't stop himself from racing to socialize with other walkers, and especially their dogs. The dogs also go along on horseback rides where a lot of distance is covered, and we needed a decent range to be able to use a collar. One correction, and now he responds immediately to the sound alone. Very nicely made product. Easy to use.

This is my first e-collar, and I did extensive research before buying. I am impressed with the unit as well as the instructions included. Very helpful. A bark limiter option would be a nice addition, but not a necessity, and it wouldn't have swayed me to other brands. The collar is compact, and both components are waterproof, as they should be for outdoor gear. There should be an off switch on the transmitter, too. The whole unit is solid, and I highly recommend it for capability, expandability and ease of use.

"I recommend it for any trainer with a really difficult dog"



By: Sandra Portzer From TX
Family pet.
My 5 year old female Great Pyrenees is notorious for getting out of her yard - either chewing a hole through the mesh, climbing the gate (which is now electrified along with the rest of the fence) or digging under. Then, when called after getting out, she would run the other way. (Comes just fine when loose in the yard.) Just two weeks of intermittent observation and timely shocks have her staying in her yard and coming at a run when turned loose (admittedly a pretty rowdy training time, but well worth it). I trained and competed with obedience dogs for years and never needed a shock collar, but this dog is REALLY hard-headed. The collar performed every time and is easy to use. I recommend it for any trainer with a really difficult dog, but as with any type of training, timing is everything, especially with a shock collar because it leaves a permanent impression.

"I have only had the collar for a few weeks, but so far it has vastly improved the quality of life of my dog (and myself)!"



By: Carissa Mann From MA
Family pet.
I have only had the collar for a few weeks, but so far it has vastly improved the quality of life of my dog (and myself)! We are avid hikers/climbers and are outside every weekend. After five or six weekends of having our dog run away during our hikes, we decided it was safer to not allow our dog to be off leash. This was not ideal for us or her (she is young, has lots of energy and is very independent). We've participated in training classes with three separate dog trainers to try to curb her habit of running away...all of the trainers overwhelmingly recommended trying an electric collar due to her extreme prey drive. I was wary at first, but after a few weeks of use, I think the collar is great. She has a much higher quality of life. We received training on how to use the collar through a local dog trainer and we practiced the technique before putting it to use. Now our dog can explore on her own during our hikes. Her recall is close to 100%, even when she is focused on prey. I really like this specific collar for numerous reasons. The remote is very user friendly. The dial to adjust the intensity is tough to move, which is good, because it will not accidentally shift up to a higher intensity. The collar itself appears comfortable--our dog does not have any problem wearing it for 4-5 hours at a time during longer hikes. She is a 45 pound Australian Kelpie mix and the size is perfect. It's as if it's not on her. I highly recommend this! I also highly recommend purchasing through Gun Dog Supply--after lots of online research, I concluded their price for this collar was competitive with all the other retailers and their level of service was excellent.

"This replaces a Tri-Tronics G50 which recently died. Pros: much more compact. The small collar fits my dog much better. Also, the default points are much longer than the default G50 or the Garmin Delta."



By: EL
Family pet.
This replaces a Tri-Tronics G50 which recently died. Pros: much more compact. The small collar fits my dog much better. Also, the default points are much longer than the default G50 or the Garmin Delta. My dog, while small, is jowly and has a lot of loose flesh around the neck. I did not need to go up to the long points with this collar, and I no longer have problems with the points getting lost in his jowls. The separate tone button is a good feature. Cons: a) sometimes it is hard to turn the collar on/off. There is no danger here of it accidentally getting turned off in the field Unfortunately, I'm not seeing a good way to correct this. Tri Tronics sometimes got turned off accidentally.b) I'm not fond of the rubber covers over the charging stations. I think the Tri Tronics way is better. Overall: it's a great system and I prefer it to its predecessor.

Now that he felt the stim, when he doesn't listen I can use the tone as a warning, and it is more than enough to get his attention. The beeps alone change his attitude. Great piece of gear. Makes training a 3 month old Lab much easier.

"Love the new close to the neck receiver."

Love the new close to the neck receiver. It fits my dog's neck so much better. The vibrate feature is excellent especially because he does not always need to be corrected with a shock. Great purchase.

"The collar works well and he has responded very quickly to it."



By: T S From CO
Family pet.
We recently adopted our dog to be a family companion and running partner. He is awesome, but his prey drive is over the top. He had put himself and me in some dangerous situations by chasing things (trains, for example). The collar works well and he has responded very quickly to it. He even wags his tail when he sees the collar, because he knows that we are about to head out for FUN. This particular model was recommended to me because it works well for dogs with longer hair. I also love the fact that there is a tone and vibration setting. I truly believe that this collar may save my dog's life some day.

"Like it."



By: Amy Parrish From MD
Family pet.
Like it. Good: Charges in 2 hours. Keeps charge for several hours. Training video a nice touch, informative and helpful. What I'd change: make it simpler. Instead of 7 different modes (not intensity levels - those are just fine), have just 2-3 different modes. Also, the charger receiver prongs in the collar and handset are tiny, and mine have already gotten bent when I tried to attach them to the charger. Perhaps just have a charging station to attach the collar to, rather than have to plug in both the collar and handset.

"This could easily be a 4 or maybe 5 star rating, but the collar is ridiculously narrow and flimsy."



By: Kevin Morgan From NY
This could easily be a 4 or maybe 5 star rating, but the collar is ridiculously narrow and flimsy. I'm coming out of 6 years of using a Tri-Tronics Sport Basic G3 which had a thick, substantial collar that was easy to put on and take off. I noticed on a lot of Steve's reviews he mentions that these newer eCollars are are designed to fit smaller dogs. In doing so, I think SportDOG and other brands have lost sight of their main customers - people with medium to large dogs. Other than that, the remote gets high marks for design and functionality. Make a bigger collar.

I had a dog trainer help me with the functions of this system, as I didn't want to rely solely on the DVD and instruction booklet. It is very easy to use, and I think it is a better option than the electric fence for our yard. Our dog is responding very well to training with the collar.

"Am very pleased with it."



By: J Snyder From MI
Hunts. Family pet.
We have been training our 5 month old English Setter for about a week on this e-collar. Am very pleased with it. The factory setting range was medium, which even at a 1 was too strong for our dog, which has a pretty mild temperament. So we switch it to the low range setting and have found that 1, 2, and 3 seem to work well depending on the situation and what we are working on. There were 2 DVD's sent with the collar and we found them helpful to watch both of them, even though the training methods/philosophies don't align completely. The collar provides a sense of security that if she wanders too far from the house, it reinforces our command to come. Overall, love it and can't imagine trying to train without it. Looking forward to using it in the woods as well for bird hunting in the fall.

"Great product!"



By: Erin Govoni From MA
Great product! The vibrate feature is way too soft though. I wish there was an option to increase the intensity. My dog doesn't even notice it. I was pretty disappointed because I had planned on using that feature. The charger is a little difficult to plug into the transmitter and receiver, and the covers for the ports are too. Other then that, this product is excellent! I'm glad I bought it.

SportDOG SportHunter SD-825



By: Rod From MA
Family pet.
We bought one last year for the new young dog, after he took off at the end of walk and went down to the town rec area to socialize. He was starting to refuse to come if there was another dog or walkers to play with. Collar was very effective with hardly any corrections, mostly just having the collar on and an occasional beep does the trick, on rare occasions, one correction. We bought this second one for our daughter. She does lots of long hikes, and worries about her otherwise obedient dog taking off on a scent and forgetting his voice command.

By: David Wachtel From CA

The associates at GDS set us up with the right tools to make a marked improvement in the relationship we have with our dog Jamison. The SD 825 allows her freedom to roam while turning her attention to us immediately when we need it. Her recall has improved ten fold in the few days we've been using the collar and the Robin McFarland video was an invaluable addition to the overall package, offering a slightly different and, in my opinion, better methodology for implementing e collar stimulation with effective training technique.

I am very happy with it. I think the dial is a little hard to decipher clicks and changes in stimulus with gloves on without looking down at it. Also, I didn't realize until I read the manual when I got it that, when going to multi-dog collars it will only work continuous stim and not momentary. This would have been a deal breaker for me.
