Training a dog for sports activities or hunting is a little more demanding than regular obedience training. Having the right dog collar is critical to helping your pet develop the right skills. The SportDOG Brand SD-425X dog collar has three training modes (vibration, static, and tone) to help you reinforce commands.
SportDOG Brand 425X E-Collar is most effective at training your pet to work off the leash. A medium setting of 3 is more than enough to get your dog developing the right skills. It would help if you started off with short training sessions of 15-20 minutes a few times a week instead of long ones. If he still can’t adhere to the commands, the continuous stimulation setting should come in handy.
The dog collar has 21 levels of static stimulation, allowing you to train up to three dogs. You have the option to use the two training modes (beep and vibration), which are also expandable if training more than one dog. However, you may need to purchase additional Add-A-Dog collars.
The device has a wireless range of 500 yards, a little longer than ¼ a mile. The range should be more than enough if training your dog in the backyard or park but, if you’re training a field or hunting dog, this range might not be enough.
Value for Money
The e-collar is a little over-priced than other similar devices. However, its sturdy construction, high-quality design, and versatility make it worth the price for dog owners devoted to training their pets for sporting activities or off-leash.
Its lightweight nature, waterproof construction, and long wireless range make it an excellent buy for training dogs in sporting activities. Moreover, it has a long battery life of 50-70 hours, allowing you to train your pet for extended periods regardless of the terrain or weather.
