I am looking into getting an E-Collar for my dog and I am new at this. I was looking at the sportdog brand due to the price range and I have not seen a complaint on them yet. I like the SD-2000 but it looks as if the reciever is bulky. Does anyone have any experience with this particular collar. Sportdog will be coming out with a new collar which has a little less range in May called the SD-800 which I like and the reciever is not bulky like the 2000. The only thing is that by May my pup will be 7 months and I was hoping to have her ready to take hunting a little next season and people say you can start collar conditioning and force fething in 6 months. I have a female and I don't know how big she will get and I don't want the collar to be to bulky so I was just curious what you guys think I should do. I don't want to buy another collar for along time....so what should I do???
