My dog loves this thing I had a spaniel mix who passed away in July. I had considered buying an e-training collar for him, but I was apprehensive. I never did, and truth is, he probably didn’t need it. BUT, I have a new dog now (boxer-rhodesian ridgeback mix). I’ve been leash-walking her daily for the past five months and she gets a decent workout (big hayfield, lots of hills). I couldn’t let her off leash because she would simply never come when called. I started investigating e-collars again with the same apprehension. When I saw that manufacturers had integrated GPS with the collars, I was more than interested. I figured even if I didn’t use the stimulation, I could at least find my dog if she disappeared into the woods. I went ahead and bought the TEK-V1LT. I used the collar-tracker only for awhile, but basically I was just chasing her all over the park. My dog was very good at obeying commands while on-leash, so I started to use the stimulation buttons simultaneously with the leash…

The SportDog TEK-V1LT works well overall although is not very operator friendly. I love that I can know where my dogs are at all times, especially when on point. But as far at the functions and controls you will get lost in the user manual trying to figure everything out continually. A lot of room for improvement remains although I can not find a better one on the market at this time and that is why I rated it a 3. If you have money then buy one, if your budget is tight wait until this product improves hopefully in the next couple of years Garmin will step up. They really need to simplify this with better buttons and ease of use overall. I like to hunt and not spend an over abundance of time learning how to operate the equipment I use in the pursuit. If the user controls were labeled more clearly and organized differently this would be a great piece to add to your bird hunting outfit.
