Same thing would happen when I turned the intensity up. Dog would not respond at all and then the next time he would yelp because intensity was obviously too high. Then I decided to strap the thing on me and walk 50 yards away from my buddy. Sure enough when he would attempt to Nick me it would only go through maybe half the time. Sent the collar back and they sent me a brand new one. IT had the exact same problem. GO with TRitronics. Sport Dog is very inconsistent to say the least.
    I really liked the 1825's features, but I was having the same problem with inconsistent corrections. I just ordered the Einstein collar yesterday.

    I have the TT sport basic and really like it. Easy to use and works great.

    Tritronics all the way! I have tried a Sportdog and the buttons fell out of the transmitter, that was 5 years ago, hopefully their quality control got better.
