SportDOG recently added the following remote training collars to their line-up: the SportDOG FieldTrainer 425 and SportDOG FieldTrainer 425S (SD-425 and SD-425S, respectively), the SportDOG WetlandHunter 425 (SD-425CAMO) and the SportDOG SportHunter 825 (SD-825). Each one uses a lightweight collar that only weighs 3.3 oz. (including strap). The systems can be fully charged in just 2 hours and each one can be expanded to control up to 3 collars at a time by using additional Add-a-Dog collars. The systems have a variety of modes to choose from that rely on momentary ‘nick’ and continuous static correction, vibration, tone or a combination of them in order to achieve optimum training results.
Each system is specifically designed to fit a certain scenario. The FieldTrainer 425 is the standard training collar, ideal for use outside in the yard, out in the field, up to a range of 500 yards. The FieldTrainer 425S variant provides the same features, but is capable of stronger stimulation options for large breeds or stubborn dogs. The WetlandHunter 425 is best suited for the waterfowl hunting environment. It comes equipped with the same features as the other models but also includes a Realtree Max-4 camo finish so that the dog can blend in better with its surroundings. The SportHunter 825 is perfect for controlling hunting dogs over a larger radius as it has a range of ½ mile.
Each system is compatible with all e-collar systems from SportDOG (except for SD-105 and SD-105S). They use DRYTEK Waterproof Design Technology so that they are waterproof up to a depth of 25 feet. They can also be used with out UplandHunter Accessory Beeper (SD-BEEP).
We will be taking pictures of each system within the next few days so that you can see exactly what you get inside the box.
