So happy!
I have an adopted german shepherd mix who is now exactly one year old. I took her to puppyclass and then to basic obedience classes for 6 weeks followed by canine good citizen classes for 6 weeks which she didnt pass because she is too easily distracted and then I hired a private police dog trainer for 4 classes and he said she does very well but her recall is not very well and she still tries to defy me when she can and he said an e-collar would help a lot. I was sceptical because I had the wrong idea about these collars. I thought it was an easy way out instead of training your dog without extreme gear like this. Until I read the reviews on this website and learned for the first time that hunters use it as well and that convinced me!
I used it the first time when my trainer was there to help me and within 5 minutes my dog was walking off leash on a path next to her doggypark where there were lots of distractions. I couldnt believe it! Next two days I practised recall in our backyard by only zapping on number one maybe 2 and since then she comes immediately even when she is not wearing her collar! It's like I'm having a new dog! She seems more submissive but very happy still! Even other people are noticing the difference. What a relief! So much more fun now to go out! Already recommended it to several other people in our dogpark.

love the product, concerned about durability
I use this product with my dog when we run so he can be leash free, he loves the freedom and I appreciate the flexibility and control it offers. I only had the had transmitter for several months before the side button popped off and rendered the tone feature useless. The company was pleasant and quick to replace the transmitter but my concern is that this device will fail again and I will be out of luck when the warranty runs out as it is only from date of purchase. I would hope the company would try to correct some of these flaws or allow for an extended warranty.

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: We're sorry you had trouble with the side button. We do stand behind all of our products and will make sure you are taken care of when it comes to this product.

Great while it works
I've had the system for less than one year and had to replace both the transmitter and the receiver (under warranty) already. I spoke with customer service and they're very nice, but the warranty is only from the date of purchase. So in a couple months I'm going to be out of luck when this thing fails again. The good: SportDOG customer service has always been pleasant and they haven't put up a fight at all when I've had issues. I have also really enjoyed and used the product WHEN IT WORKS. Despite all of that, I WILL NOT be purchasing another one. I think it should las longer than 9 months.

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback on the system. We understand that multiple replacements is an annoyance. We assure you, we stand by our products and we will make sure that you are satisfied with the product's life and warranty.
