    Had a friend who had a sport dog. He said the warranty program was excellent. The only problem was that every time we trained together his collar was sent in for warranty work and needed to borrow my TT collar. I'm glad I had a quality product.

When it FAILS and it will SportDog will charge you a fee to look at it and a fee to fix it...If the unit fails while in warranty they send you a refub with ONLY A 90 DAY WARRANTY!!! It will fail and you will be out $300+ Do yourself a favor and buy TRITRONICS or be Very,Very Sorry you bought Sport Dog Brand...(I went through 6 - 1825 camo systems I lost all my money SportDog has poor customer service to say the LEAST!)

    Very true post. Back in the mid 2000s I worked for a kennel that was a TT pro dealer. They make top notch products and have excellent service.

    I also had a Sport Dog. Had a problem with it and had trouble getting the company to help or offer any fair solution. I gave it away and bought a new Tritronics. Have been very happy every since....

    Tri tronics, always Tri tronics. Buy it once and be done.

    Sport Dog is the biggest piece of crap I have ever owned.


    After going through several units I finally took a hammer to the POS SD to completely destroy it and bought Tritronics.

    I have a SportDog 400.

    The charge last for weeks and it's never died, I just put it back on the charger b/c I think it needs to be re-charged and don't want it to die in the middle of training and in the season during hunting.

    It's over a year old now and has worked as advertised. No problems, works fine and has allowed me to do with it what I need to do.

    If it wouldn't, I wouldn't own it. But it does, so it's pretty simple to me.

    WELL worth the mere $150 I paid compared to the cost of other collars I couldn’t afford at the time.

    TT and Dogtra are Top Notch and well above the Sport Dog in all aspects. IMO

    I'm just giving my experience with a Sport Dog Collar without all the Bru-ha-ha angry stuff.

    I currently own both Sport Dog and TT brand and find the TT collar to be the best. Have send my Sport Dog in for repairs twice(once for the receiver and once for the transmitter) in 2 years. Would definitely go with TT.

    I have a SD collar...I use it for a dummy collar because thats about the only thing Ive found it useful for. Bought a TT pro 500 G3 several years ago and couldnt be happier.

    Had a Sport Dog 3-4 years ago it worked fine until it stopped working. I worked with the company to get a fix or replacement...

    Got frustrated with them and purchased a TriTronics....Sport Dog finally sent me a replacement, which I gave to my son....

    I recommend TriTronics.....
