Steve Says:

Gun Dog Supply EXCLUSIVE

One hour of BASIC OBEDIENCE training
from Pro Trainer Robin MacFarlane.

I got a final version of the SD 425 right around the beginning of hunting season in 2012. While I had been looking forward to this collar coming out, it really was not something that I planned to use for myself and I figured a short few tests and I would be done with it. I am still using it several months later and it is now one of my favorite collars. It's in my truck right now and I use it almost every day. I have used it on Roxy for every duck hunt this year and I expect to keep using it around the house for some time.

The 425 is the replacement for the extremely popular SD 400. This version fixes several things that the 400 was missing and gets it in line with the new generation SportDOG collars.

The new features of the 425 include:

  • Rapid 2 hour charge
  • Mode selection collar choices for sensitive and regular dogs
  • Smaller collar
  • Tone and Vibration options
  • Multi dog modes that include Tone or Vibration on the dial, allowing you to use tone or vibration when in a two or three dog set up

    The 425 is a great collar for obedience work, retrievers and flushers. It's going to quickly become one of our best sellers in its category.

    While the 400 has been our best selling collar under $200 for the last 8 or 9 years, I never really found a use for it. The 425 has changed that for me. It is an awesome system for folks that don't need a lot of range but want a full featured system for working close to medium range dogs.

    Owns 3 dogs. Family pet.

    Fast charging. Love it! Having all 3 dog collars on one unit is so much easier. Very effective. Less than 12 hours and all three dogs were responsive to tone and voice. Great product. Thank you.

    Gun Dog Supply Exclusive: One Hour BASIC OBEDIENCE Ecollar Training DVD

      $40 Value -- You get this FOR FREE when you buy this ecollar.

      We are proud to announce that Professional Dog Trainer Robin MacFarlane is working with us! We just wrapped another video shoot, and are launching her latest DVD.

      PREVIEW: Watch a 10-minute Preview here...

      What's interesting about these videos is that Robin has never worked with these dogs before, and several younger dogs have never been trained on an ecollar.

      First, Robin walks you through the basic obedience commands showing what proper form looks like.

      Next, Robin shows how she introduces the ecollar to two of Steve's puppies, Jack & Tilly, and shows you how to find the right STIM level to communicate with your dog.

      She then turns that into a lesson for your dog to recognize that STIM means pay attention to your handler and expands that into a basic recall.

      Additional segments include teaching RECALL, PLACE, SIT, and HEEL.

      Exclusively available at Gun Dog Supply.

    SportDOG FieldTrainer SD-425 3-dog Overview

    The SportDOG Field Trainer SD 425 is an incredibly versatile training collar and a good choice for all-around use. The SportDOG FieldTrainer SD 425 is ideal for training in the yard, field, or for hunting with close-working dogs. Both the transmitter and receiver are waterproof and submersible. The comfortable "soft coat" transmitter finish makes this unit a pleasure to handle.

    The low continuous stimulation levels and gradual increases between levels on the SD-425 are particularly useful with sensitive dogs or breeds.

    You can customize your SportDOG Field Trainer SD-425 to match your training preference. It comes set up in MODE-1 (a 7-level continuous + 7-level momentary stimulation one dog collar with non-stimulation tone button), but it can easily be changed into 7 different modes with different button configurations.

    Modes include Continuous and Momentary with Tone or Vibration. Two or Three Dog Mode features one button per dog with either Tone (Mode 3) or Vibration (Mode 4).
