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.

  • Avoid leaving the collar on the dog for more than 12 hours per day.
  • When possible, reposition the collar on the dog’s neck every 1 to 2 hours.
  • Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure; follow the instructions in this manual.
  • Never connect a lead/leash to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
  • When using a separate collar for a lead/leash, don’t put pressure on the electronic collar.
  • Wash the dog’s neck area and the contacts of the collar weekly with a damp cloth.
  • You may need to trim the hair in the area of the Contact Points or switch to the longer Contact Points to ensure consistent contact. Never shave the dog’s neck; this may lead to a rash or infection.
  • You should not make the collar any tighter than is required for good contact. A collar that is too tight will increase the risk of pressure necrosis in the contact area.
  • Examine the contact area daily for signs of a rash or a sore.
  • If a rash or sore is found, discontinue use of the collar until the skin has healed.
  • If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.


My dog is not responding when I press a button.

  • Check to see if the Collar Receiver has been turned on and the Indicator Light is flashing.
  • If your range has reduced from the first time you have used it, please check to see if the battery is low in either the Remote Transmitter or Collar Receiver.
  • Many factors can impact the range you have. For a list of these factors, please refer to “How the System Works”.
  • You can verify the Collar Receiver is delivering static stimulation to your dog by placing the test light, enclosed in your kit, on the Collar Receiver. Please refer to the “Test Light Instructions” section for details.
  • Increase the Intensity Dial. Refer to “Find the Best Intensity Level for Your Dog” for more information.
  • Increase the Static Stimulation Range. Refer to “Changing Static Stimulation Ranges” for more information.
  • Make sure the Collar Receiver’s Contact Points are placed snugly against your dog’s skin. Refer to “Fit the Collar Receiver” for more information.
  • You may need to switch to the longer Contact Points included with your system or trim the hair beneath the Contact Points.
  • If you notice your operating time dropping to about half the original time, your Collar Receiver battery needs to be replaced.

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.

  • Make sure the Remote Transmitter has been charged. The Remote Transmitter will charge in 2 hours.
  • Verify the Collar Receiver has been turned on and the Indicator Light is flashing. Refer to “Turning the Collar Receiver On and Off.”
  • Refer to “Match the Collar Receiver and Remote Transmitter.”

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 this receiver? 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 dogs 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.

Can my Collar Receiver be used around salt water? 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 this receiver collar on aggressive dogs? 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 one mile of range? The range you get 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 “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 receiver collar? No. 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.

My Remote Transmitter is sending a signal to more than one Collar Receiver unintentionally; what should I do? In the rare event this occurs, you can change your Remote Transmitter’s ID Code (see Change ID Codes on Page 17) to solve this.

    Sport Dog - SDR-A Add-A-Collar

    By on

    The collar programming/set-up directions shipped with my add-a-collar simply assumed I had an 1825 transmitter. I had to contact Sport Dog direct to find out how to program/set-up my add-a-collar with my 1225 transmitter/controller. Turns out the step by step directions were in my original 1225 manual. I would not have been able to program/set-up my add-a-collar with the information “shipped” with the collar. Other than this issue once programmed/set-up the collar has functioned fantastically. Tim
