Summary:Finally, I have found a collar that works. I have purchased and tried several other types and brands of collars but all of them weren’t durable enough and more importantly, none of them were effective enough to train my stubborn dog. This collar finally got his attention. He has quickly learned how to use it. The first few tries were quite challenging but I eventually got control of him. I guess my dog finally decided that following my commands was way better than getting a “shock” from the collar.
Pros:Durable, For stubborn dogs
Two thumbs up!

Summary:I’ll keep this review simple. This collar is just the best there is. It is the best training tool I have ever used on my very stubborn puppies. Very easy to operate. Not complicated. I really hate complicated gadgets. They are just too irritating. Works excellently. I would recommend this collar to friends.
Pros:Easy Operate, Simple gadget, Best training tool
Effective collar

Summary:This collar is effective. I have a new pup who is really giving me the hardest time in the world. Compared to the other dogs I have, this new one is quite the stubborn one. I was able to train him using this collar. Once I put this collar on him, he becomes a totally different dog. It’s like a switched has been flipped. I’m rating it with only 4 stars just because the first unit I got broke after only 5 weeks of use. They gladly replaced it with a new one and I got the replacement after just a few days. The new one has been working well. I just hope it will not break soon.
Pros:Effective, Replacement

Summary:By the looks alone, this collar looks tough. I think it will last a long time with correct use. It was a bit late when I realized that this collar was a bit too strong for my dog but the lowest setting works well with her and I didn’t have to go anywhere beyond that. She has responded well with it. The 500 yard range is decent enough and the rechargeable batteries are performing well. If you have a less aggressive dog, you might want to try the other products of SportDog. They have a good list of amazing products.
Pros:Best Range, Rechargeable, Amazing
Works BUT…

Summary:I have been using this product for a little over a year now. I’m happy with the results. It has helped me control my stubborn dog. However, the batteries needed replacement after about 12 months of use. I had to buy them myself since customer service said it was under warranty anymore. I hate shelling out money too soon. I used other collars before and the batteries didn’t need replacement for at least 2 years.
Pros:Good results
Cons:Bad Batteries
