Neil's Review

The SportDOG FieldTrainer Remote Trainer SD-425S is the stubborn-dog version of the popular SD-425E. Unlike the SD-425E that features low to medium stimulation strengths, the SD-425S features medium and high correction levels designed for high-drive dogs in high-intensity working conditions. The system has a 450m range, is expandable up to 3 dogs and is completely waterproof and submersible.

SportDOG SD-425S Remote Trainer

The SportDOG SD-425S is a robust short-range remote trainer built for field training, hunting, farming, tracking, K9 training, competition training and obedience training. The SD-425S remote trainer delivers higher static stimulation levels for high-drive working dogs and tolerant pet dogs above 5kg.

The system has a 450m range and is expandable up to 3 dogs (with additional receiver collars). The collar features 7 levels of 'medium' static stimulation and 7 levels of 'high' static stimulation. The medium stimulations are recommended for tolerant dogs in suburban/controlled environments while the high stimulations are recommended for tolerant dogs working environments. Using the rheostat dial located at the top of the handheld remote trainer, you can quickly fine-tune the levels to match your dog's drive. The remote trainer features nick stimulations and continuous stimulations as well as static-less functions including tone-only and vibration-only. The system is completely waterproof submersible and rechargeable.

How it Works: The SportDOG SD-425S has two main components; the handheld remote and the receiver collar. When you press a button on your remote transmitter, a radio signal will be sent to your dog's receiver collar and delivers the selected stimulation through the contact probes. With proper training, your dog will learn to associate the stimulation with a specific command or behaviour.

Remote Functions:

Levels 1-7 (Static stimulation): Using the rheostat dial on your remote transmitter, you can quickly fine-tune the stimulation output between levels 1 and 7 (1 being the lowest and 7 being the highest). 

Nick Stimulation: When the nick stimulation button is pressed, the collar will deliver a momentary stimulation regardless of how long the button is pressed for.

Continuous Stimulation: When the continuous stimulation is pressed, the collar will deliver static stimulation for the length of time the button is pressed for (for a maximum of 10 seconds). To continue the stimulation, release the button and press the button again.

V/T (Non-static stimulation): Vibration-only and Tone-only stimulation.
