Instructions

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 leash/lead to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
  • When using a separate collar for a leash/lead, 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Battery Maintenance

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. Failure to do so will result in decreased battery life.

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.

Troubleshooting

My Handheld Device does not turn on. Check to make sure the unit was properly charged. Refer to “TO CHARGE THE HANDHELD DEVICE” on page 16.

My GPS Collar or GPS Collar with E-Collar Module does not turn on. Refer to “TO CHARGE THE GPS COLLAR/E-COLLAR MODULE” on page 11.

  • If your range has reduced from the first time you used the system, please check to see if the battery is low in either the Handheld Device or GPS Collar with E-Collar Module.
  • Many factors can impact the range you have with the TEK Series 2.0 System. For a list of these factors, please refer to “HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS” on page 5.

  • Increase the stimulation range. Refer to “Stim Range” on page 23 in the My Dogs section.
  • Make sure the Contact Points are placed snugly against your dog’s skin. Refer to “FIT THE GPS COLLAR OR GPS COLLAR WITH E-COLLAR MODULE” on page 15 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, the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module battery needs to be replaced.

Can I attach a leash/lead to the GPS Collar? DO NOT attach a leash/lead to the collar. You may put a separate nonmetallic collar strap on your dog’s neck and attach a leash/lead. If the E-Collar Module is installed, be sure the extra collar does not interfere with the Contact Points.

    Lose Signal over 300 yards.

    By Raven on Dec 13, 2018

    All the functions are great, easy to use. but unless you plan on actually using it to find your dog that isnt right next to you, then this is not the tracker for you. It will lose signal normally at anything over 300 yards away, and this is in a open Hay field on a clear day.

    Thank you Chewy

    I am an old geezer and not very technology literate so I had to contact Sportdog for help to get me up and running. Great costumer support and so far so good with the Tek 2 Tracking and Training unit. Wally
