How about stronger packageing
Started out as a great product. However, I don't know how he did it but the dog chewed it off his neck (had one finger clearance on tightness) and chewed the device to destruction. Perhaps a stronger (metal reinforced) collar and a die cast casing. The construction of this thing (while looks nice) reminds me of a toy.

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: We're sorry to hear he was able to chew through the collar. That is not something we have seen before. It is not uncommon for the receivers to be chewed on so we design them to be able to withstand that. We can help you out with warranty service. This collar receiver is designed to be much lighter than others we offer. The reason for this is some people prefer a lighter collar on their dog. Less weight for the dog to carry. It does feel very light in the hand since it only weighs a few ounces, but is designed to withstand great force.

Great while it lasted!
This product worked wonderfully for about 4 or 5 months. Over a period of a couple weeks, it went from not being able to hold a charge for more than an hour or two, to not even turning on!

SPORTDOG RESPONSE: Sorry to hear you are having trouble with your system. Based on what you're saying, it sounds like you may have an adapter issue. We will get in touch with you via the email that you provided with this review. You are also always welcome to call us at 800.732.0144. We can easily get this taken care of for you quickly. Thank you

My dogs hearing aid
I have a deaf dog named “Blitz” short for “Blitzen” (not that a name helps him) and I refer to the collar as his hearing aid. We got him from Deaf Dogs of Oregon when he was 10-weeks old and he has had this collar on since he was 12-weeks old. He will be 2-yr old in October.
We use the vibrate feature to get his attention and he looks at us to receive hand signal commands. The multiple level of stimulation with the continuous and nip feature are very useful for the times when he is too busy sniffing or rough-housing with our other dog to recognize or respond to the vibration.
Training was a cinch. Buzz him with vibrate and as soon as he shows and response, reward with a treat. In only 1-2 days, when he feels the buzz, he would run almost in a panic to find who has the treat for him. Now we have shifted to sporadic treats as reinforcement. At night we take the collar off him to turn it off and charge it as needed, usually every other day or so, and in the morning he will stretch his neck out to receive the collar.
The other features have been useful for teaching the boundaries of our property or stopping him from getting into a dangerous position. Living in the country on the end of a dead-end road, I do not worry that much about cars but I also do not want him wondering off the property into the road. So a firm nip the first time or two he stepped into the road has him believing something in the road bites. Now once every couple of months he “tests the waters” and gets a mild reminder.
Now I recommend this collar for anyone adopting a Deaf Dog. And just to add, Deaf Dog do make GREAT PETS, if you take the time to train them properly. This collar made All Of The Difference.
Great product. More than just a hunting collar.
Thank you SportDOG
