Great training tool.
I have a 34 lbs Springer Spaniel as a family pet. I started using the Sportdog Field Trainer 425 when my dog was 11 months old. It was a great training tool for my dog. I now have so much confidence having him off leash knowing that I can call him back in at any time. Instensity level 1 is enough for my dog to feel resistence and react. Only had to go up to level 2 a few times. The best part is is that he is now responding to my verbal commands and I rarely have to shock him now. Just make sure to read and use the included training manual and have your dog know the basic commands before you start using the e-collar (Sit, Stay, Here, No, Down).

The e-collar and transmitter both have awesome build quality. I have been using for 2 months now and haven't had any problems. My dog has swam with the collar on as well with no issues. Only improvement I can think of would be to the volume of the "beep" function. If your dog is more than 20 yards away it is really hard to hear. I use this function so I can keep track of how close he is to me when he is out of a line of sight. I don't think it was designed for this so I can't take any stars away for that. It's a great product.

Stellar customer service!
We've found SportDog's FieldTrainer 425 to be a very effective training tool for our two dogs. When the collar is on, the distractions of squirrels, cats, small children and interesting smells magically disappear and they're ready to listen to instructions! As a result, we have a couple of very well-behaved boys who often receive kudos from passersby.

The unit is sturdy and the ability to customize the buttons is useful (why use a nick when a tone or vibration will work just as well)?

In addition, SportDog's customer service is unparalleled; agents are not only polite but responsive and go the extra mile to help if a problem arises. It's refreshing to find a company that stands behind its products.

2 weeks past the warranty expire date, its done.
Have owned this for a year and 2 week now. About a month ago the battery in the collar begins to go dead after being put on the dog within 10 minuets. Around the same time I unplug the charging plug from the remote and the plastic plug on the cord breaks in half. Down to charging one thing at a time now. Two weeks after the warranty expires, the collar will not even take a charge. This cost way too much to give out in one year. Going back to the $29 cheap units. I can buy one every 3 months and still be money ahead in a year. This needs to be more durable and longer lasting to warrant the cost. It worked great at first but the longer it was used the less reliable it became, mostly due to the battery not holding the charge until the other problems appeared. Not it does not matter anyhow. Its done.


Hello there, thank you for taking a moment to review your SD-425 FieldTrainer. We are terribly sorry to hear about the charging issues you have experienced and we can absolutely understand your frustration. While this unit is covered by a one year warranty, we typically see about 3-5 years before a battery change is needed so what you are experiencing is not typical. We would love the opportunity to speak with you to see how we can help. If you would, please give us a call at 1-800-275-6797.
