SportDOG SportTrainer Remote Trainer - SD-825E

Trusted by hunters, farmers, trainers and pet dog owners, the SportDOG SD-825E is a versatile medium-range remote trainer for dogs above 5kg with a mild to stubborn temperament. The SportDOG SD-825E has a 700m range, is expandable up to 3 dogs and is completely waterproof & rechargeable. Its compact yet tough design makes it a reliable communication tool for working and training environments.

The system features 7 levels of 'low' static stimulation and 7 levels of 'medium' static stimulation. Using the rheostat dial located at the top of the remote trainer, you can quickly adjust the stimulation to the exact level that matches your dog's drive. The low stimulation levels are great for reinforcing training commands and training your dog out of disobedient behaviour. The medium stimulation levels are ideal for hunting dogs, farming dogs, working dogs and dogs with a headstrong/stubborn temperament. The collar also has a vibration-only function and tone-only function as well as momentary and continuous stimulations.
