- Remote training feature
- Non-proprietary batteries
- Not rechargeable
- No battery backup
- No adjustable correction levels
- No indoor pods
Innotek’s SD-3000 adds remote training functionality to the SD-2000 (review here) for about an extra $50. As we mentioned with the SD-2000 this is Innotek’s bare bones offering. You get a reliable system, but lose desirable features, most notable the rechargeable collars.
Like the SD-2000, you have a non-proprietary 3 volt battery that you can find in most drug stores and that runs about $5 and needs replacing about every 2 months according to Innotek. You also lose the ability to manually adjust correction levels.
As we mentioned in our review of the IUC-5100, remote training is not a feature we love. We think it can be confusing to dog, especially in the first few months when they are learning how the dog fence works.
Summary: The SD-3000 is for those on a tight budget that need remote training capability. The lack of rechargeable collar and adjustable correction levels are noticeable.
