What customers say about "Key Specs"
SportDog FieldTrainer 425 Waterproof Shock Collar
  • The tone and vibrate function are excellent for training a young dog especially when distractions interrupt the exercise
  • The stimulus features are well calibrated to address each dog's temperment.
  • This is a highly versatile tool with all of the key features needed to hold your dog's attention during training sessions.
  • She responds very well to the beep and we never have to give her any type of shock. This product has great range and is very dependable.
  • Range of reciever and different tone and vibrate settings are good; however, I recomend one that uses standard batteries.
SportDog FieldTrainer 425S Waterproof Shock Training Collar
  • The range is great and he has been in rain and creeks with the unit still working perfectly. Highly recommend.
  • This has great range for what I needed it for. When I'm simply trying to get her to come inside I only use the beep button and she responds. BUY IT!
  • Works great no issues. Dog response well and range is good
  • The SportDog collars offer Low-Medium-High settings, from 1-7, so 21 levels in all between the 425 and 425S models.
  • This collar barely fit around his neck and made it to the buckle. Not reaching the first hole.

What customers say about "Features"
SportDog FieldTrainer 425 Waterproof Shock Collar
  • Build quality of the unit is great; it is submersion-proof; and, charges very quickly.
  • It's compact and very easy to use, reasonable and very effective it takes very little for my dog to respond I'm really glad I purchased it.
  • Nice compact size and easy to learn how to use. Included DVD helped to get started quickly. Like rechargeable feature over having to mess with all the batteries.
  • Has good range and the battery life exceeded my expectations.
  • Very durable and made well. Small, lightweight, and charges quickly.
SportDog FieldTrainer 425S Waterproof Shock Training Collar
  • The vibration feature works for seemingly as far as we let her roam. The battery lasts all day for certain, although I rarely utilize it. I know it's waterproof because she jumped in a pool and it still worked fine.
  • Works great on distance recall and rechargeable. No more batteries.
  • Works as expected. I love you you can charge the collar and remote instead buying batteries.
  • Battery doesn't last as long as I liked but all in all I'd buy it again!
  • Only complaint so far is the short battery life. I train with him every day, so I have to charge it every night, which can be an inconvenience if I forget. Other than that, very satisfied.
