"The handheld unit is quite small, which I like"



By: Peter Beckerman From DC

Family pet.



I previously had a Tri-Tronics sport series, which I liked, but when it died after a few years, I thought I would try something new. The SportDog collar is thinner, and the unit is smaller, but the prongs seem marginally longer. The handheld unit is quite small, which I like. And the SportDog allows both tone and vibe, which I like, as I prefer not to stim/shock the dog when possible. The range isn't as long as the Tri-Tronics, and I'm not sure I'd the units, which have rubberized covers over the charging ports, would be as waterproof as the Tri-Tronics, but there have been no problems so far, and the price, convenience, and size of the unit are real selling points.

Product Rating: 4 out of 5-stars.
