Dog Training Gear for Every Season
It’s important that your dog’s gear is built to withstand the elements you face in the field. That’s why nothing from SportDOG gets into your hands without rigid testing. Whether you and your dog are doing daily water training in summer or breaking through winter lake ice for long retrievals, SportDOG gear can handle it.
How Do the SportDOG Models Differ?
Most SportDOG e-collars are waterproof and rechargeable and feature tone, vibe and static stim settings. The big differences between the models are collar distance range, number of dogs one remote can talk to, and remote type. Choose from remotes with features like OLED display or a tactile dial for no-look operation.
A quiet dog is a calmer, more attentive and easily trainable dog. SportDOG bark collars help you achieve that.
Give yourself the tools needed to effectively transition your dog to off-leash control.
Facilitate clear communication between you and your dog, both at home and in the field.

About SportDOG Brand
From a humble start in Knoxville, Tennessee, SportDOG Brand has grown to be one of the leading brands in the hunting dog training industry. Since 2003, they have designed and tested their products in the field to ensure performance in the face of challenges like heat, cold, rain, snow, dust, wind and mud. They know those conditions are just another day on the hunt, so they make sure SportDOG gear works just as hard as your dog does.
My cattle dog barked every time he was excited and it is a piercing bark. Like ringing in your ears piercing. I tried everything else; attention extinction, positive affirmation, and nothing worked. I read every review on this collar and was leery at first because one of the negative reviews was about a cattle dog. But man am I impressed. The collar has been on him for less than two days and it is incredible. I am shocked that anyone could report that it does not work because it has been so great with my dog. I would check to make sure the collar is tight enough or the contacts are put together right or there is not some other weird defect like the battery is bad. He is just so much more in control of himself now. Highly recommend this product. Definitely read the instruction manual that comes with it.
I have Sportdog field collars that work well so I bought this -- these don't work at all. Two dogs - Siberian and Border Collie. Used high and low contacts, trimmed fur, everything. In 1 year of almost constant use, I've only seen the collar obviously work once. It just doesn't react to any stimuli. Dogs bark on all settings with no effect. Overpriced and useless. Replaced with Petdiary Smart Bark Waterproof Static Dog Collar which is working well.
I'd tried everything for my dog who barks incessantly. This had good reviews, which is why I spent the money. Unfortunately, this hasn't done anything. I've followed all of the suggestions in the manual, and she is still unfazed by it.
I have several of these collars and some of them are over several years old and still work great. I raise American Bulldogs and own a kennel and every now and then I need to have a couple of dogs stop barking. These collars are heavy duty and well worth your money. When the collar is on a dog it will only trigger if that dog barks. It does not trigger when another dog right next to them barks like the cheaper bark collars out there will do. the battery is rechargable and once charged it lasts for a very long time. I'm talking days. This company Top Dog is known for good quality products. Folks if your looking for a good bark collar and you only want to buy once this is it.
Very difficult to use. Did not stop barking at all Do not recommend this collar at all.
My Australian Cattle dog is a barker. I have tried different, cheaper remedies to no avail. I decided to spend a little more and chose this collar but it was a colossal waste of money. I have tried all the different settings and I'm not even sure that it works since the dog continues to bark without so much as a flinch.
Terrible. Bought 2 for 2 boykins, these things don’t work.
We have a 4 year old beagle. She went from loud bark/howls to half barks. We have kept it on the Learning mode. We will not go back to life without!!! We did have to reposition it in the beginning & tighten until we found the right fit. There’s lots of slack on the collar and we cut to size.
My dog is very stubborn and has learned to bark at everything from another dog. This collar has really helped control his barking. He still does one or two barks before the shock level goes back up to where it affects him, but it’s not excessive anymore. I use it on the temperament setting.
I am not sure if it is bc my dog has long hair but this collar does not sound at all when he barks. I also have the remote control collar by this brand & while it has a very short battery life, at least it works to deter his barking. I was hoping to have a reliable one to use when he is outside w/o supervision but this is not it. Sending it back.
