Not for use with aggressive dogs. Do not use this product if your dog is aggressive or if your dog is prone to aggressive
behaviour. Aggressive dogs can cause severe injury and even death to their owner and others. If you are unsure whether
this product is appropriate for your dog, please consult your veterinarian or a certified trainer.
This device contains Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries; never incinerate, puncture, deform, short-circuit, or charge with an
inappropriate charger. Fire, explosion, property damage, or bodily harm may occur if this warning is not followed.
Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of spent batteries according to the regulations in
your area.
Batteries should never be removed from the battery compartment for charging.
Risk of explosion if batteries are charged in areas with high temperature (38° C / 100° F+).
Please read and follow the instructions in this manual. Proper fit of the collar is important. A collar worn for too long
or made too tight on the dog’s neck may cause skin damage. This is called bed sores; it is also called decubitus ulcers or
pressure necrosis.
Avoid leaving the collar on the dog for more than 12 hours per day.
When possible, reposition the collar on the dog’s neck every 1 to 2 hours.
Check the fit to prevent excessive pressure; follow the instructions in this manual.
Never connect a lead to the Collar Receiver; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
When using a separate collar for a lead, don’t put pressure on the electronic collar.
Wash the dog’s neck area and the contacts of the collar weekly with a damp cloth.
Examine the contact area daily for signs of a rash or a sore.
If a rash or sore is found, discontinue use of the collar until the skin has healed.
If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
For additional information on bed sores and pressure necrosis, please visit our website at www.sportdog.com.
These steps will help keep your dog safe and comfortable. Millions of dogs are comfortable while they wear stainless steel
contacts. Some dogs are sensitive to contact pressure. You may find after some time that your dog is very tolerant of the
collar. If so, you may relax some of these precautions. It is important to continue daily checks of the contact area. If redness
or sores are found, discontinue use until the skin has fully healed.
You may need to trim the hair in the area of the Contact Points or switch to the longer Contact Points to ensure consistent
contact. Never shave the dog’s neck; this may lead to a rash or infection.
You should not make the collar any tighter than is required for good contact. A collar that is too tight will increase the
risk of pressure necrosis in the contact area.

COMPONENTS
HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
The SportDOG® SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer has been proven safe, comfortable, and eective for all dogs
over 3.6 kg. Consistent, correct use of this product allows you to reinforce commands and correct misbehaviour from up to
1200 metres. The Remote Transmitter sends a signal, activating the Collar Receiver to deliver a harmless stimulation. With
proper training, a dog will learn to associate this signal with a command. Like all SportDOG® products, this model features
adjustable static stimulation levels so you can tailor the stimulation level to your dog’s temperament, eliminating the risk of
over-correction.
IMPORTANT: THE SPORTTRAINER® SD-1225E REMOTE TRAINER HAS A RANGE OF UP TO
1200 M. DEPENDING ON THE WAY YOU HOLD THE REMOTE TRANSMITTER, THE MAXIMUM
RANGE MAY VARY. FOR CONSISTENT RESULTS AT LONGER RANGES, HOLD THE REMOTE
TRANSMITTER IN A VERTICAL POSITION AWAY FROM YOUR BODY AND ABOVE YOUR HEAD.
TERRAIN, WEATHER, VEGETATION, TRANSMISSION FROM OTHER RADIO DEVICES, AND
OTHER FACTORS WILL AFFECT THE MAXIMUM RANGE.
Do not use this product if your dog is aggressive or if your dog is prone to aggressive behaviour. Aggressive dogs can
cause severe injury and even death to their owner and others. If you are unsure whether this product is appropriate for
your dog, please consult your veterinarian or a certified trainer.

RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES
This device contains Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries; never incinerate, puncture, deform, short-circuit, or charge with
an inappropriate charger. Fire, explosion, property damage, or bodily harm may occur if this warning is not followed.
Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of spent batteries according to the regulations in
your area.
Batteries should never be removed from the battery compartment for charging.
Risk of explosion if batteries are charged in areas with high temperature (38° C / 100° F+).
The rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries are not memory sensitive, do not require depletion before charging, and
cannot be over charged.
The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge before the first use.
When storing the unit for long periods, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge. This should be done once
every 3 to 4 months.
You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose capacity
over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience. This is normal. If your operating time drops to half of
the original life, contact the Customer Care Centre to purchase a new battery.
The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years. When a battery needs replacement, you can order a new pack by
calling our Customer Care Centre. For a listing of telephone numbers in your area, visit our website at www.sportdog.
com. Please do not open the Collar Receiver or Remote Transmitter until you have received the replacement.

FIT THE COLLAR RECEIVER
IMPORTANT: The proper fit and placement of the Collar Receiver is important for effective training. The Contact Points must
have direct contact with your dog’s skin.
Please see page 3 for Important Safety Information.
To ensure a proper fit, follow these steps:
1. With your dog standing (3A), center the Collar
Receiver so the Contact Points are underneath
your dog’s neck, touching the skin (3B). If your
dog has a long or thick coat, you have two options
to ensure consistent contact: either trim the hair
around the Contact Points or switch to the longer
Contact Points included with your system.
You may need to trim the hair in the area of the Contact Points. Never shave the dog’s neck; this may lead to a
rash or infection.
You should not make the collar any tighter than is required for good contact. A collar that is too tight will increase the
risk of pressure necrosis in the contact area.
2. The Collar Receiver should fit snugly, yet loose enough to allow one finger to fit
between the strap and your dog’s neck (3C).
3. Allow your dog to wear the collar for several minutes, and then recheck the fit. Check
the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable wearing the Collar Receiver.
STEP
::
04
FIND THE BEST INTENSITY LEVEL FOR YOUR DOG
The SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer has multiple intensity levels. This allows you to choose the static stimulation
that is best for your dog.
NOTE: Always start at the lowest level and work your way up.
For training efficiency, it is important to find the right intensity level for your dog. This is called the “Recognition Level”, and is
the level at which your dog looks around in curiosity or flicks his ears.
TO FIND YOUR DOG’S RECOGNITION LEVEL
NOTE: Every dog is different and you cannot predict where your dog’s Recognition Level will be. Watch closely for any slight
change in behaviour that demonstrates your dog is feeling the static stimulation.
1. With the Collar Receiver turned on and properly fitted to your dog, set the Remote Transmitter’s Intensity Dial at Level 1
and press the Continuous Static Stimulation Button for 1 to 2 seconds.
2. If your dog shows no reaction to Level 1, go to Level 2 and repeat the process.
3. YOUR DOG SHOULD NOT VOCALIZE OR PANIC WHEN RECEIVING STATIC STIMULATION. IF THIS HAPPENS, THE STATIC
STIMULATION LEVEL IS TOO HIGH AND YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS LEVEL AND REPEAT THE PROCESS.
4. Once you find your dog’s Recognition Level, this is the level you should use when you begin a
training exercise.

3B
3C
EN ES
FR IT

SPORTDOG.COM
5. If you have progressed to Level 8 while searching for your dog’s Recognition Level and your dog continues to show
no response, check to see if the Collar Receiver is snug against your dog’s neck. Then go back to Intensity Level 1 and
repeat the process. If your dog still does not indicate he is feeling the static stimulation, you have three options: trim
the hair beneath the Contact Points, switch to the longer Contact Points included in your system, or change the static
stimulation range.
If after completing all of these steps your dog still does not indicate he is feeling the static stimulation, please contact the
Customer Care Centre.
CHANGE STATIC STIMULATION RANGES
The SportTrainer® SD-1225E Collar Receiver has 3 static stimulation ranges (low, medium, and high). There are 8 static
stimulation levels within each range, with 1 being the lowest and 8 being the highest. The default range setting is 2 (medium).
To change the range of static stimulation, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the Collar Receiver is off.
2. Turn the unit on by pressing and releasing the On/Off Button.
3. Within 5 seconds of the Indicator Light turning off, press and hold the On/Off Button for 3 seconds.
4. The Collar Receiver will then beep once and the Indicator Light will flash orange. This indicates Low static stimulation
range. If Medium or High is desired, continue to hold the On/Off Button until the number of beeps/orange flashes equals
the desired static stimulation range, as shown in the chart below.
5. Release the On/Off Button once the desired range is selected; the Collar Receiver will turn off.
6. Turn the unit back on. It will then beep according to the static stimulation range selected in Step 4.
GENERAL TRAINING TIPS
BEFORE TRAINING YOUR DOG WITH THIS PRODUCT
You will have the most success using this remote trainer if you always remember to teach a command before trying to
reinforce the command with a remote trainer. Always keep the following training tips in mind:
Eliminate one misbehaviour or teach one obedience command at a time. If you move too fast with the training, your dog
may become confused.
Be consistent. Give your dog a static, tone, or vibration stimulation with each misbehaviour.
Do not overcorrect your dog. Use as few stimulations as possible to train your dog.
Restrict your dog from situations in which he has a history of misbehaving unless you can supervise him and use the
SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer for applying static, tone, or vibration stimulation.
If you notice one situation in which your dog misbehaves repeatedly, set up this situation as a training session. This will
dramatically increase your chances of success.
If your dog has a timid reaction to the static, tone, or vibration stimulation (especially the first couple of times), do not be
alarmed. Redirect his attention to a simple and appropriate behaviour (i.e. a known command, such as “Sit).
Never use the SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer to correct or eliminate any form of aggressive behaviour. If your
dog exhibits such behaviour, contact a professional trainer. Aggression in dogs is the result of many factors. It may be a
learned behaviour or it may be brought on as a result of fear. Another factor contributing to aggression in dogs is social
dominance. Every dog is different.
Visit our website at www.sportdog.com to find more detailed training tips and guides or contact our Customer Care Centre for
further assistance. For a listing of the phone numbers in your area, visit our website at www.sportdog.com.
At this point, your remote trainer is ready to use. The transmitter is factory set to mode 1, but you may wish to change the
mode to fit your situation. See STEP 05 for an explanation of mode options.

(Level set by Intensity Dial)
3
NOTE: Modes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 provide 8 levels of static stimulation, which correspond to the setting of the Intensity Dial.
Mode 6 provides more “increments” to choose from – a total of 16 levels of static stimulation. For example, in mode 6 with
the Intensity Dial set at 2, the lower button provides level 3 of 16 and the upper button provides level 4 of 16.
The +2 Boost sends a signal to the collar to issue a static stimulation that is 2 levels higher than the currently selected level.
The system will not correct higher than level 8.
* After selecting mode 6 and while the green Indicator Light is still solid in colour, turn the Intensity Dial to the desired
Continuous Stimulation level and press the Side Button to set the level. The green Indicator Light will quickly flash
acknowledging your selection. For example, if you turned the Intensity Dial to 3, the Side Button on your Remote
Transmitter will transmit Continuous Stimulation at level 3 when pressed. If no level is selected after 15 seconds, it will
default to level 8.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the static stimulation safe for my dog? While Continuous static and/or Momentary static stimulation may be
unpleasant, it is harmless to your dog. Electronic training devices require
interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results.
How old does a dog have to be before
using the SportTrainer® SD-1225E
Remote Trainer?
Your dog should be able to learn basic obedience commands such as “Sit
or “Stay”. The system should only be used with dogs over 6 months of age.
The Collar Receiver may be too large for dogs under 3.6 kg. If your pet is
injured or its mobility is otherwise impaired, contact your veterinarian or
professional trainer before use.
Once my dog is trained and has been
obeying my commands, will my dog have to
continue to wear the Collar Receiver?
Your dog may need to wear the Collar Receiver from time to time for
reinforcement. Also, many hunters keep the Collar Receiver on their dogs
while hunting for maximum control.
Is the Collar Receiver waterproof? Yes. If the rechargeable battery pack ever needs to be replaced, make sure
the o-ring and o-ring groove are free from dirt and debris.
Can my Collar Receiver be used around
salt water?
Yes. However, if the Collar Receiver is used in or around salt water, it should
be rinsed with fresh water following each use.
Can I use the SportTrainer® SD-1225E
Remote Trainer with more than one dog?
Yes. The SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer is expandable to a
maximum of 3 dogs. SportDOG® Add-A-Dog® Collar Receivers must
be purchased. Please refer to the back cover for a list of compatible
Collar Receivers.
Can I use the SportTrainer® SD-1225E
Remote Trainer on aggressive dogs?
We do not recommend any of our products to be used on aggressive dogs.
We recommend you contact your local veterinarian or professional trainer
to determine if your dog might be aggressive.
Will I get exactly 1200 m of range with the
SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer?
The range you get with your SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer will
vary according to terrain, weather, and vegetation as well as transmission
from other radio devices. To get the maximum amount of range, please
refer to “How the System Works” section of this guide.
How long can I continuously deliver
stimulation to my dog?
The maximum amount of time you can press the Continuous Static
Stimulation Button and deliver static stimulation to your dog continuously
is 10 seconds. The maximum amount of time you can press the Vibration
Button and deliver vibration stimulation continuously is 10 seconds. The
maximum amount of time you can press the Tone
Button and deliver tone stimulation continuously is 10 seconds. After 10
seconds, the stimulation will “time out” and the Remote Transmitter button
needs to be released and then pressed again before additional stimulation
can be delivered.
What do I do if my dog’s neck becomes red
and irritated?
This condition is due to the Contact Points irritating the skin. Discontinue
use of the Collar Receiver for a few days. If the condition persists beyond 48
hours, see your veterinarian. Once the skin returns to normal, resume use
and monitor the skin condition closely.
The Intensity Dial seems difficult to rotate.
Is this normal?
Yes. This prevents accidental changes in intensity and encourages an
optimal waterproof seal. The knob will “break in” and be slightly easier to
turn as you use it.
Can I attach a lead to the SportTraine
SD-1225E Collar Receiver?
DO NOT attach a lead to the SportTrainer® SD-1225E Collar Receiver. You
may put a separate non-metallic collar on your dog’s neck and attach a
lead. Be sure the extra collar does not interfere with the Contact Points.
Can I program my SportTrainer®
SD-1225E Remote Trainer to work with my
other SportDOG® Brand systems?
Yes. You can program your SportTrainer® SD-1225E Remote Trainer to work
with the SD-425E, SD-425CAMO, SD-825E, SD-1825E, or
SD-1825CAMO systems. Because the SD-1225E operates at a different
frequency, it is not backwards compatible with any other SportDOG®
Brand systems.
