    Easy To Use & Immediate Results, October 16, 2008

    I purchased this collar for training my 6 month old Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog mix.
    Naturally a 6 month old has energy to spare and my dog is a strong puller. We had tried traditional collars as well as other specialty training collars with no positive results. We enrolled her in a Beginners Obedience Class and our trainer turned us on to the Triple Crown collar.
    Immediately after putting it on our dog there was a difference in her behavior. She stopped pulling and began to respond to her training. When she begins to pull we give a slight jerk on her leash and she stops.
    This collar beats the traditional choke chain and is easier for the beginner to use than the choke chain.
    I found that the collar was easy to adjust and you can purchase extra links to compensate for your dog’s growth.
    The only downside is that there are no training instructions to accompany the collar.

    Great idea but pulled apart when puppy lunged, July 1, 2009

    Definitely worked well on my 6 month old German Shepherd puppy. Made a world of difference taking her for walks and getting her attention when she got excited.

    Unfortunately, it is not that strong and pulled part when she went after a cat. This is the second time it pulled apart. The first time it happened, I thought maybe I didn’t click the links together properly. But this time, if you look at the links, you can clearly see the plastic deformed to allow the separation. I am returning to Amazon and recommending that they inform the manufacturer.

    We used this on our full-of-energy Bernese Mountain Dog puppy (4 months) to train her to walk on a leash without pulling (or stopping). It works great, she’s very responsive, and it’s very gentle. I put the collar around my bare calf and tugged as hard as I could on the leash, and can personally testify that the discomfort is minor – no piercing of the skin at all. more like a tight grip with fingertips. Highly recommended.

    [[Update]] – As our puppy grew, the pressure she could put on the links by pulling increased dramatically. Also, the method of opening the collar to let her out, namely disconnecting two adjacent links, started to wear down the plastic nubs holding the links together. Eventually the links started to pop open when she pulled on the collar, which led us to purchase a metal prong collar instead.

    This review is from: SportDOG Stubborn Dog Yard Trainer, SD-105S (Misc.)

    After much research, I decided to buy the Sportdog yard collar for Stubborn dogs. My dog weighs 67 pounds and is lean and tall so I figured this collar would be more effective. I was looking for a quality product but didn’t want to spend alot of money to get collars with 400 or 800 yard range. My purpose was to correct my dog’s behavior at the park (a place where he doesn’t listen me) gently and effectively. As soon as my dog began to eat stuff he shouldn’t at the park I used the tone function. He immediately stopped! I didn’t even need to use the shock button. For the past two visits to the dog park, I have used mostly the tone to correct bad behavior. Only twice did I use the stimulation button which I had set at only level 2. I am so amazed by how well this works! I am happy I decided to get this product and didn’t have to spend a ton of money to get something good. I highly recommend this if your dog is on the larger side and you will be working with him or her in a space no bigger than 100 yards.

    This review is from: SportDOG Stubborn Dog Yard Trainer, SD-105S (Misc.)

    After struggling with my 10 year old Basset Hound for a decade I broke down and decided to purchase the SportDOG E collar.

    Let me just say my dog has been a major source of aggravation and disruption to my home life over the years. I had basically resigned my self to the fact that the only solution to this stubborn dog was to out live him!

    I knew some about E collars but was fearful that it might not work or it might be cruel to my dog to use. But, I broke down and bought it out of desperation.

    My wife and I received the collar quickly, as is usual with Amazon, and opened it up and installed the batteries that are included. We were hopeful but skeptical of obtaining a positive result.

    We allowed our dog to adjust to the collar for a couple of days, without using it, which was no problem with him. He wore it just like his regular collar. Then I let my wife use the controller because the dog is actually hers and I did not want to be perceived by her as using undue “stimulation” on her dog for corrections.

    We put the stimulation level to the lowest level, one, and my wife tried it when the dog needed his first correction. To our amazement the level one setting got an obvious reaction from the dog. Although it did not appear to hurt him but rather startled him.

    Long story short, I found out that my Basset Hound who I mistakenly believed was stubborn beyond all redemption almost immediately learned that he was going to follow commands and stop being disruptive to our family. With very few uses of the stimulation our dog has become a totally new well behaved dog who is now a pleasure to have around the house.

    He learned within one day that when he hears the warning tone that he had better pay attention. We rarely need to use the stimulation on him because contrary to my belief, our dog is smart, and figured it out in nothing flat.

    Well, I could go on more but let me simply say this has been a life changer in a positive way for me, my wife and especially good for our dog. No longer do we need to yell at him or put him in his kennel for “time outs”. He is out with us more and we can interact with him in a positive and loving way now that he is under control and behaved.

    Thank you SportDOG!!!

    My dog is normally off the wall, and does not listen AT ALL. Just think of “Marley and Me”…he’s that dog haha. I bought this collar and took him out in public with no leash..just the collar, and he listened SO well. He stayed right by my side the entire time and did not bother anyone. I didn’t even have to use the shock button…I just use the beep sound and he comes right to me. This product is a life saver.
