The SportDOG SDF-100A is a system intended for very large installations up to 100 acres. The SDF-100A is a perennial favorite, with a sturdy well-built collar with a vibration warning and best of class waterproofing.
The SportDOG Containment System has a class leading 100 acre capacity, letting you run up to 9,000 feet of boundary wire.
The basic system includes 1,000 feet of boundary wire (sufficient to cover an acres), twice the standard amount provided with other dog fencing system.
SportDOG primarily makes heavy duty training equipment for training dogs, and in keeping with that ethos the collar is one of the most sturdy and well built. The waterproofing on the collar is particularly good and it can easily handle full immersion.
The SportDOG SDF-100A collar is one of the biggest, bulkiest and heavy collars. It is about the size of two 9 volt batteries, and does not suit smaller dogs. Even on large dogs, the collar is very noticeable.
The SportDOG collar vibrates as well as beeps to warn the dog when they are getting too close to the boundary. The tactile stimulation of the vibration is nice as it uses an additional one of the dog senses to engage them. Vibration is also useful with old dogs or dogs with hearing loss that have trouble hearing the warning beeps.
The heart of the SportDOG system is a long-range transmitter that has a 100 acres capacity. The transmitter of the SDF-100A is significantly improved over the previous generation SDF-100. Aesthetically, it is no longer a big plastic brick. It’s now got a curvy face and much more appealing industrial look and is wall mountable using two screws that hook onto the back of the system.
