Great Product, Not so Great Life Span
I absolutely love this collar. I have a 97 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback and this collar has worked wonders in terms of his attention span.
I barely ever have to use any of the shock buttons 1-7, and can almost always maintain my dogs attention with the vibrate setting.
Changing the setting on the collar/remote is very easy, and SportDog offers a ton of training options for setting up your remote.
The only complaint I have is the life span of the collar/remote. I had to replace the remote after I had had it for close to a year (free remote replacement bc still under warranty). But now I'm going to have to replace the entire collar/remote set because it completely does not work any more. It has not been in water, or even left outside in cold temperatures. I'm very careful to not over charge the batteries, so I have no idea what happened to it.
I have called SportDog, and by the way their Customer Service is pretty great, but My collar is out of warranty so I will have to either repurchase, or try something else. But I did enjoy this product while it was working!
SPORTDOG BRAND RESPONSE:
Thanks for taking the time to leave your review, Ridgely. We're sorry to hear that you've had issues with your FieldTrainer. Please know that you shouldn't have to replace both components and we can usually find a better replacement option than full retail for existing customers (with a few product details and troubleshooting). We would like to get a little more information from you to confirm that you were given the best solution for your situation. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can better assist you.

Perfect for training my hounds!
I have a couple of hound wannabes and when we go out to work the fields they often forget to listen to dumb ole dad. It only took a few blasts with the shock function to get them to stop and pay attention. I now use the vibrate setting and they pay wonderful attention.
I run two of the '425S' units in tandem. Doing this allows me to have two remotes that can control either collar. That way when my lady friend and I are out running the dogs we can have independent control of either dog.
Also, buy the LED Light accessory...it kicks butt for camping!
Thank you so much!
PS- Wonderful customer service and support!!!

I love this product and have recommended it to so many people! We trained our very stubborn lab with it since she was 5 months old (exactly why I love the vibrate and tone options.)
Unfortunately, we have had to return this product 3 times in 2 years and tonight we will be returning another. I don't know anyone else who's had issues and it's very frustrating but after a few months it fails to work.
All I can say is just beware for people who solely rely on it for the safely of their pets.
We are very sorry to hear that you've had continued issues with your remote trainers! If you are still having trouble or have any problems in the future, please be aware that we may be able to solve the issue through troubleshooting and, if a replacement is needed, the product has a warranty that covers most situations. Please give us a call at the number 1-800-732-0144 and we would be more than happy to help out!
