Battery life sucks
3 out of 5
3 out of 5
Summary:I have no issues with how the product works. It has really helped me teach my dog to be behaved and obedient. But the battery life just sucks. I have been using this for around 4 weeks now and I’ve already replaced the batteries twice. And this is despite using the product at the lowest possible setting. My dog quickly learned so I seldom had to use the correction button after that. But even with that, the battery still ran out quick.
Pros:Dog become obedient
Cons:Short age battery, Settings
Not for my dog

Summary:I own a boxer and he is quite a big boy at around 80 pounds. Upon receiving the unit, I used the tester that comes with it just to check if the unit is working just fine. The tester indicated that the unit was working well. I was excited to use it on my dog so I immediately put it on him and tried using it. But my dog didn’t even flinch. I used the highest setting and he still didn’t respond. I’ve been trying to get it work on him but I’m having no success. This is not the product for my dog.
Cons:Dog didn’t respond
Battery lasted for only 1 day

Summary:I have a big and very stubborn dog so I had to use the highest possible rating to correct his behavior. It was working just fine but the batteries didn’t last long. I had to replace them even after using the unit for just a day. I filed my complaint and returned the unit. I’m still looking for another model that is better for my dog.
Pros:Works good
Cons:Not longer batteries
Bad production

Summary:Everything was working just fine. My dog has been very obedient and we were able to go out on walks without a leash. I was really happy with the performance of the product. But after just a few weeks of use, almost all of the buttons on the transmitter and receiver are already broken or have collapsed into the unit. It’s really disappointing. Completely not worth the money I spent. They said that it is durable but this says otherwise.
Cons:Transmitter and Receiver are already broken, Disappointing
Not recommended

Summary:I’ve been really frustrated by the performance of the batteries of the SD-105. They need to be replaced too often. And after only 12 months of use, the remote has become faulty. Sometimes, the correction doesn’t get activated even if how hard I push on the button. Also, when my dog is running too fast, he can hardly feel the correction even at the highest setting. I’m not recommending this product at all.
Cons:Faulty product
