Not for use with aggressive dogs. Do not use this product if your dog is aggressive, or if your dog is prone to aggressive behavior. Aggressive dogs can cause severe injury and even death to their owner and others. If you are unsure whether this product is appropriate for your dog, please consult your veterinarian or a certified trainer.
Proper fit of the collar is important. A collar worn for too long, or made too tight on the dog’s neck may cause skin damage. This is called bed sores; it is also called decubitus ulcers or pressure necrosis.
You will have the most success using this remote trainer if you always remember to teach a command before trying to reinforce the command with a remote trainer. We recommend that you read the enclosed Training Guide and watch the enclosed DVD before training with this remote trainer. Your training will be easier and proceed faster if you follow the guidelines in these teaching assistants. In addition, always keep the following training tips in mind:
The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge before the first use. When storing the unit for long periods, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge. This should be done once every 3 to 4 months.
You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose capacity over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience. The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years.
**My dog is not responding when I press a button.
The Collar Receiver will not turn on. Make sure the Collar Receiver has been charged. The Collar Receiver will charge in 2 hours.
**The Collar Receiver is not responding to the Remote Transmitter.
|Size||Neck Size||Collar Width||Recommended Pet Weight|
|One-Size||5 - 22 inches||3/4 inch||Over 8 lbs|
**What purpose does V/T on the intensity dial serve? In modes 5 and 6, you have the flexibility of delivering tone or vibration respectively, or stimulation to all 6 dogs.
Is the static stimulation safe for my dog? While Continuous and/or Momentary stimulation may be unpleasant, it is harmless to your dog. Electronic training devices require interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results.
How old does a dog have to be before using the HoundHunter 3225? Your dog should be able to learn basic obedience commands such as “Sit” or “Stay.” The Collar Receiver may be too large for dogs under 8 pounds.
Once my dog is trained and has been obeying my commands, will my dog have to continue to wear the Collar Receiver? Your dog may need to wear the Collar Receiver from time to time for reinforcement. Also, many hunters keep the Collar Receiver on their dog(s) while hunting for maximum control.
Is the Collar Receiver waterproof? Yes. If the rechargeable battery pack ever needs to be replaced, make sure the o-ring and o-ring groove are free from dirt and debris.
If the Collar Receiver is used in or around salt water, the Collar Receiver should be rinsed with fresh water following each use.
Can I use the HoundHunter 3225 with more than one dog? Yes, the HoundHunter 3225 is expandable to a maximum of 6 dogs. SportDOG SDR-AH Add-A-Dog Collar Receivers must be purchased.
We do not recommend any of our products to be used on aggressive dogs. We recommend you contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer to determine if your dog might be aggressive.
**Will I get exactly two miles of range with the HoundHunter 3225? The range you get with your HoundHunter 3225 will vary according to terrain, weather, vegetation, as well as, transmission from other radio devices. To get the maximum amount of range, please refer to the “How the System Works” section of this guide.
How long can I continuously deliver static stimulation to my dog? The maximum amount of time you can press the Continuous Stimulation Button and deliver static stimulation to your dog continuously is 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, the Remote Transmitter will “time-out,” and the Continuous Stimulation Button must be released and pressed again.
What do I do if my dog’s neck becomes red and irritated? This condition is due to the Contact Points irritating the skin. Discontinue use of the Collar Receiver for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian. Once the skin returns to normal, resume use, and monitor the skin condition closely.
The Intensity Dial seems difficult to rotate. Is this normal? Yes. This prevents accidental changes in intensity and encourages an optimal waterproof seal. The knob will “break in” and be slightly easier to turn as you use it.
Can I attach a leash to the HoundHunter 3225? DO NOT attach a leash to the HoundHunter 3225. You may put a separate non-metallic collar on your dog’s neck and attach a leash. Be sure the extra collar does not interfere with the Contact Points.
Can I program my HoundHunter 3225 to work with my other SportDOG Brand systems? Yes. Your HoundHunter 3225 will also work with SportHunter 1825, SportHunter 1225 and WetlandHunter 1825 systems.
