    I've been using the Sportdog 825 daily for the last 5 months and have 0 complaints about it. It's been the hand of god for a spun-up lab puppy. We've been able to do 95% of er training w/o a check cord and she's done most of her "good citizen" training with it instead of a leash. Ours came with 2 levels for the electric settings, vibration & tone. I'd not hesitate to get another one.

    I’ve been looking at this one for a training collar as well. Thanks for the report.

    Our dog trainer uses the garmin models exclusively and you get a Delta XC when use him for obedience training as part of the package. Having said that, it's a great collar and we have had no issues.

    I just ordered the Sport Dog 1225 Field Trainer. It will get put through the paces later this summer, at which time I'll be able to offer some halfway intelligent thoughts on it.

    I've used Innotek, Tritronics before Garmin, Garmin and Sportdog and unless you need a GPS feature I VASTLY prefer the Dogtra 2500 T&B. If you have desires for another pup, then the 2502 T&B. It's a beeper and a receiver all in one ultra compact collar. They feature Dogtra's rheostat stimulation (0-100), point only beep, run and point beep, and locate only beep AND the new ones feature the vibration. The Receiver is 100% mud and waterproof and the transmitter is water resistant. I've been running one since they came out and won't ever get another unit unless they discontinue it or I somehow feel the need to upgrade to GPS. IMO there is no other collar that comes close to the reliability and having the features of the Dogtra.

    Should mention one more thing. Get a collar as soon as you can and once the pup grows into it, have it wear the collar all the time your out with it, early on do not turn it on. You just want the pup to get used to it. Best way to get your pup collar wise is don't put it on until you start working your dog. To set the intensity, put the collar on the dog and turn it ll the way don. You nic your dog there and you will likely get no reaction from your dog. Start working up in intensity and at each step, nick the dog waiting for a sign it felt it. You'll know the sigh because of the dog's expression. It felt something and hasn't a clue where it came from. Your power is pretty close to just right right there. Everybody that has good luck will tell you it's a great collar. Well don't be overly impressed because you'll find other's that had bad experience's with the same collar. A bad experience here and there does not make any collar bad.
