What customers say about "Key Specs"
SportDog YardTrainer 105 Dog Training Collars for Around the House or Yard
  • I really like a dial to set the shock level. One of the flaws with other collars is that changing the shock level is that it's not easy/quick to adjust the intensity. With this collar you can move from a "3" to an "8" very quickly.
  • Length of the collar: It's very long. I think you could put it around the neck of a bear if you are like to seek adventure. It has a lot of holes for size adjustment and is easy to cut off the excess.
  • Distance: He was a good 200 feet away from me when he received his final shock and ran back to the fence. The signal remained strong.
  • Works at very long distances (I'm not sure if it's 350 yards, but I've never had the dog go out of range).
  • Only has a correction tone ( and when you first turn it on ) it makes this sound. The pup always become very attentive after hearing this. I wish it would have a different tone or none at all.
  • You cannot buy a replacement transmitter for this collar... so don't lose it!
  • The collar design is similar to another collar that I had that failed on me. Instead of the collar wrapping around the front of the unit, it's held on with two plastic washers (which can break).
SportDog YardTrainer 105S Dog Training Collars for Around the House or Yard
  • The range is great, and the charge lasts a good long time. I would 100% recommend this product for anyone thats got a naughty pup or needs a little bit of help with training!
  • The range is limited to line of sight/50-75ft at most. It's okay for us as we just use it for walks and to remind him not to dig in the backyard.
  • The only reason I am not giving it 5 stats is that the range seems to be just about 100 yards. It is labeled as 100 yards, but I wish I had something more robust. I think 3 to 400 would be more appropriate for me.
  • My dog exceeds the weight for this device by about two pounds is a little more than two years old. So I wasn't too concerned about it being unsafe for him.
  • The only thing that I don't like is that the two contacts are a bit long and seem to bother her neck.

What customers say about "Features"
SportDog YardTrainer 105 Dog Training Collars for Around the House or Yard
  • The second button that gives a greater shock is a good idea in practice, but I rarely find myself using it.
  • The battery life is better then previous models ( from 3 years ago ) I live in Alaska, so I use it in the winter months. this has double the life as previous models.
  • Water proof ( I've added a little silicone grease to the O-Ring ) but it does come fairly water proof.
  • I have purchased this Brand in the past and they work perfectly. Easy to use, waterproof units - dog swims with it on. The charger is able to recharge both the collar and transmitter at the same time ( usually overnight is all it takes ) - a very important feature.
  • It uses two small batteries in the collar, and I've noticed that it will appear to function fine, but the batteries can be drained and don't provide much of a shock.
  • The batteries don't last long either. I would say that you need to replace both batteries in the collar every month. If it was a normal AAA battery I wouldn't mind.
  • The battery drawer needs a small Phillips screw driver ( if you don't have one in the field, its hard to MacGyver this one open ) the transmitter has an easily field serviceable door.
SportDog YardTrainer 105S Dog Training Collars for Around the House or Yard
  • Battery life is not very long on the 2032's and they aren't the cheapest kind of battery.
  • The remote is really cool, comes with a strap to hang around your neck, has a very cool matte finish that feels great in your hands and is easy to use.
  • The battery life is better then previous models ( from 3 years ago ) I live in Alaska, so I use it in the winter months. this has double the life as previous models
  • I really like the SportDOG design for the remote (5 stars on that one), but the collar is the weak point.
  • I was going to give it four stars because I would have like an additional feature - Tone/shock on a button. However, that feature is available on more expensive models, for a few bucks more, and that isn't the product that I chose.
