How to Reset the SportDOG Collar Receiver to the Remote Transmitter

1. Turn your Collar Receiver OFF.

2. Holding the ON/OFF button down, the Receiver Indicator Light will come on and turn off after approximately 5 seconds.  If the Indicator Light begins to flash, that is an indication that the ON/OFF button was let go too early.  If that indeed happens, start all over and repeat from step #1.

3. After the Receiver Indicator Light has been turned OFF, let go of the button.

4. On the Remote Transmitter, hold the Upper Button until the Receiver Indicator Light flashes 5 times.  Occasionally, you will need to separate the collar and transmitter about 2-3 feet apart before the light flashes properly.  The collar receiver has been reset properly after you see the 5 flashes and will then begin flashing as normal.  If having trouble getting the Indicator Light to flash 5 times, start over again and repeat from step #1.
