    I would do some research on Sport Dog. There is lots of information about the reliablity of Sport Dog on this site. You can do a search. There is probably a reason they are so cheap. So, I would day no.

    Look at the Product Review section. The latest topic is on TT vs SportDog

    The pain of regret is much worse than the pain of hard work.

    Bought a Tri Tronics e-collar for my lab in 2005. It's still going strong and has taken a beating over the years. Bought a SportDog e-collar (the equivalent to my TT collar) for my daughter's beagle and after 2 years it quit working. It was just out of warranty and I still need to call them about it. Not sure what they're response will be, so I can't comment on their customer service yet. Most likely I'll never own a SportDog collar again, but that's just my opinion. Have heard similar stories from other guys who have owned SportsDog collars.

    Worst collar that you can buy.
    In fact, they are so bad, that there should be a law against them.
