Frequently Asked Questions
What is an e collar for dogs?
- An e collar for dogs is a training tool that’s also called a remote trainer, dog training collar, or shock collar. It helps you communicate remotely with your dog. Used correctly, it can help reinforce commands and correct undesirable behaviors in your pet. It allows you to train your dog with more precise timing and consistency. This makes an e-collar a very effective training tool.
Will an e-collar hurt my dog?
- A remote trainer works by sending a signal from the transmitter to the collar on the dog’s neck. The signal then triggers the stimulation, which can be in the form of static shock. The stimulation is meant to distract the dog from doing something they’re not supposed to or mark the desired behavior. The stimulation may be unpleasant but generally harmless.
For people who prefer not to use static, the UplandHunter 1875 also comes with vibration and tone training options.
Are e-collars effective?
- E-collars can be invaluable training tools, but only when used correctly. If you need help with using one or do not know how to start, please consult a professional trainer.
When can I use an e-collar for dogs?
- PetsTEK does not recommend using an e collar for dogs younger than 6 months old. We also recommend supplementing training with a remote trainer only when your dog has already learned the basic commands.
How does the UplandHunter 1875 dog training collar work?
- The SD-1875 transmitter remote sends a signal to the receiver collar on the dog’s neck. The collar has two contact points, also called prongs, that deliver static stimulation. You can also set the remote to provide a vibration or tone to mark the message you’re sending your pet.
Additionally, UplandHunter 1875 comes with a beeper collar, allowing you to keep tabs on your dog's movements.
Operating the SportDog SD-1875 UplandHunter Remote Training Collar
How do I fit the e-collar and beeper?
- Making sure the e-collar and beeper fit correctly will ensure more consistent correction. To ensure a correct fit, follow the steps below:
- To attach the remote beeper to the collar strap, thread the end of the strap through both slots on the beeper, one after the other. Slide the beeper up the strap a few inches. To secure the beeper, place the knob on the bottom of the beeper in one of the holes on the strap.
- With your dog standing (4A), place the ecollar on your dog's neck, ensuring the contact points are touching their skin (4B). The remote beeper should be centered behind their head.
- If your dog has a thick coat, trim the hair around the contact points. Alternatively, switch to the longer contact points included with your system.
- The collar receiver should fit snugly, but not too tightly. You should be able to fit one finger between the strap and your dog's neck (4C).
- Let your dog wear the collar for a while, and then recheck the fit. Check the fit periodically as your dog becomes more comfortable wearing the collar.
Rotate the collar every 1 to 2 hours and never leave it for more than 12 hours daily.

How can I program my SportDog SD-1875 UplandHunter transmitter?
- The UplandHunter 1875 offers 12 operational modes, allowing you to choose the ideal mode for your training style. The remote transmitter is factory set to Mode 1 (toggle up). Additionally, two programming modes are available: Mode 7 (Change Tones) and Mode V/T (Change ID Codes).
To change the mode, follow these steps:
- Consult the tables below for the desired modes.
- To select modes 1-6, adjust the intensity dial to the desired mode level while the toggle switch is either up or down. For instance, if you want Mode 5, set the intensity dial to Level 5 regardless of the toggle switch position.
- Flip the remote transmitter upside down.
- Use a pen or the tip of a buckle to press and release the Mode button. When pressed, the transmitter indicator light will stay solid in color. Upon release, the indicator light will flash the corresponding number of times for the selected mode. For example, Mode 5 will result in 5 flashes.
Note: Mode 3, in both toggle switch positions, provides more “increments” to choose from, with 14 stimulation levels. For example, in Mode 3, with the intensity dial set to 2, the Lower button corresponds to level 3 out of 14, while the Upper button corresponds to level 4 out of 14.
How do I pair the SD-1875 UplandHunter collar receiver and remote beeper to the remote transmitter?

- Turn the collar receiver/remote beeper off.

The UplandHunter 1875 beeper comes with 9 tones. The default tone is High Volume Beep. The remote beeper must be paired to the remote transmitter to change the tone settings remotely.
To change the tone, follow these steps:
- While the remote beeper is still on, set the intensity dial on the transmitter to position 7 while the toggle switch is up.
- Press the Mode button of the remote transmitter. The LED will turn green.
- Press the Upper button on the transmitter for Dog 1. The remote beeper will cycle through the available tones, playing them one at a time.

- You can choose a different tone for each dog. For Dog 2, follow the previous steps using the Lower button instead of the Upper button. For Dog 3, follow the previous steps using the Locate button instead of the Upper button.
- Turn the intensity dial one position. The transmitter’s indicator light will turn off.
- Press the corresponding button for each dog (with the toggle switch in the up position), and the selected tone will play.
You can change the Run Mode using the Run Mode button on the remote transmitter. You have three choices of how often the beeper sounds off when your dog is moving: never (Silent Mode), every 5 seconds (5 Second Mode), or every 10 seconds (10 Second Mode). In all modes, the remote beeper will beep once per second when the dog stops moving.
- Press and hold the Run Mode button while viewing the back of the remote transmitter.
- After 2 to 3 seconds, an indicator light next to the current run mode will come on.

Note: If you want different run modes for each dog in 3-dog operation, follow the instructions below to manually configure each remote beeper.

What are SportDog ID Codes?
- A SportDog ID code is the signal identification between the remote transmitter and the collar receiver. Every remote training collar unit is programmed in 1 of the 2,000 ID codes from the factory.
The UplandHunter 1875 can program two or more transmitters to the same ID Code, allowing the remotes to control one collar receiver. There are 64 programmable ID Codes available.
How to manually program a SportDog remote transmitter’s ID code?
- To program a remote transmitter’s ID code, here are the steps:
- Turn the intensity dial to V/T. Set the toggle switch in the up position, then press and release the Mode button. This does not change the mode. After releasing the Mode button, the transmitter indicator light will turn solid green and illuminate for 15 seconds.
- Turn the intensity dial to set the first digit of the ID while the green indicator light is on. Then, press and release the Left-Side button. Once the digit is set, the green light will quickly flash to confirm your choice.
- Again, while the green light is on, turn the intensity dial to set the second digit of the ID code, and then press and release the Left-Side button. The green light will flash rapidly as a confirmation. The 2nd digit is optional, and if you prefer not to add it, wait until the green light turns off and refrain from pushing the Side button.
- At the end of the 15 seconds or after the second press of the Left-Side button, the light will turn off, indicating the ID is updated. The unit mode will remain the same before setting the ID.
- Changing the ID code will require the collar receiver/remote beeper to be matched again.
Note: If you prefer not to add the second digit, the ID is still a 2-digit ID with the left defaulted to 1. For example, if you choose 6 in Step 3 while skipping Step 4, the ID will give you 16.
How to return the unit to the factory set ID?
- To return to the pre-set ID code, follow these steps:
- Turn the intensity dial to V/T. Set the toggle switch in the up position, and then press and release the Mode button. This does not change the mode.
- Refrain from pressing any button until the green indicator light turns off.
- After that, the collar receiver must be paired with the remote again.
