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.

Bought the collar a few weeks ago dog didn't respond to it, seems week I couldn't feel the shock on my hand until I turned it up to 6 and even then it was extremely week

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: Sorry to hear you are not a fan of the stimulation level. The SD-425 comes with 2 modes of intensity on the collar, low and medium. It's possible that you have your collar set to the low range of stimulation. You may be happier if you turn it to a medium setting. Also, it's a important to note that our collars are made to communicate with your dog, not to hurt your dog. To get the proper setting for your dog, find his recognition level. Put the collar on your dog and make sure the transmitter is on level on. Move up the dial one level at a time until your dog flicks his ears. This is the recognition level.

Not only for Hunting Dogs
I have a small Welsh Terrier who is about 3 years old, and we have put a lot of time and money into training over the years. The terrier breeds can be very difficult to train, and our dog was no exception; especially when it came to running away, ignoring the "come" command, jumping up on visitors when excited, and not walking alongside us during walks. In just one week with the E-collar, we have a completely new dog. The above problems have all been solved at this point, almost like magic! We simply watched the instructional DVD and dedicated a lot of time to using the product exactly as they instructed.

There is one thing I would suggest when using this product on a small breed. We basically only need to use the beep on the side of the controller and the sound/vibrate option. Unless she is in "chasing squirrel mode" or is in a hyper-excited state, the beeping and vibrating are enough to draw her attention back to observing the command we are giving at that moment. But having the other options on the controller are helpful in case she does not respond to the beep/vibrate. So far we have never needed to exceed the "1" level.

I highly recommend this product. Our friends recommended this company to us because of their customer service and the overall quality of the product. I do not write many reviews, but I could not help but write a positive post because this product is top notch. Having a well trained dog and knowing the dog is safe with the E-collar is well worth the amount you will pay for the product.
