YARD TRAINER SYSTÈME DE DRESSAGE DE COURTE DISTANCE EN IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION EXPLANATION OF ATTENTION WORDS AND SYMBOLS USED IN THIS GUIDE FR This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you to potential personal injury hazards. Obey all safety messages that follow this symbol to avoid possible injury or death. WARNING indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. CAUTION, used without the safety alert symbol, indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in harm to your dog 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, shortcircuit, 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 used 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+). EN FR 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 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. Unauthorised changes or modifications to the equipment may violate FCC regulations and could void th user s authority to operate the equipment.

Consistent, correct use of this product allows you to reinforce commands and correct misbehaviour from up to 100 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 Brand 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-stimulation. IMPORTANT: THE YARD TRAINER COLLAR RECEIVER USES AN INTERNAL ANTENNA EMBEDDED IN THE COLLAR STRAP TO RECEIVE SIGNALS FROM UP TO 100 METRES. 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 OVER 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.

The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog s skin. EN FR 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 where 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. 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 3C recheck the fit. Check the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable wearing the Collar Receiver. 4. Trim the collar as follows (3D): A. Mark the desired length of the collar with a pen. Allow for growth if your dog is young or grows a thick winter coat. B. Remove the Collar Receiver from your dog and cut off the excess. IMPORTANT: Do not cut the part of the collar 3D containing the antenna. C. Before placing the Collar Receiver back onto your dog, seal the edge of the cut collar by applying a flame along the frayed edge. 3B 3A 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. SPORTDOG.COM 9 EN TO RE-THREAD THE COLLAR Slide Buckle The slide buckle prevents the collar from becoming loose around your dog s neck. FR Ridges The ridges must be facing up; the collar will slip if it is not properly threaded. STEP :: 04 FIND THE BEST INTENSITY LEVEL FOR YOUR DOG The SD-105C Yard 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. FINDING 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 a 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 VOCALISE 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. 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 two options: you may either have to trim the hair beneath the Contact Points or switch to the longer Contact Points included in your system. If after completing all of these steps your dog still does not indicate he is feeling the static stimulation, please contact Customer Care Centre STEP :: 05 MATCH THE COLLAR RECEIVER AND REMOTE TRANSMITTER To match the Collar Receiver to work with a new Remote Transmitter or to match a new Collar Receiver to work with your existing Remote Transmitter: 1. Turn the Collar Receiver off. 2. Press and hold the On/Off Button. The Receiver Indicator Light will come on, then turn off after 4-5 seconds. If the On/Off Button is released too early, the Receiver Indicator Light will begin flashing as normal. If this occurs, start over from After the Receiver Indicator Light has turned off, release the On/Off Button. 4. Press and hold the Upper Button on the Remote Transmitter until the Receiver Indicator Light flashes 5 times. Once the Receiver Indicator Light has flashed 5 times, the Collar Receiver has been matched and will begin flashing as normal. If the Receiver Indicator Light does not flash 5 times, start over from 1.

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 the 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 or tone 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 Remote Trainer for applying static or tone 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. SPORTDOG.COM 11 EN FR If your dog has a timid reaction to the static or tone 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 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Is the static stimulation safe for my dog? How old does a dog have to be before using the SD-105C Yard Trainer? Once my dog is trained and has been obeying my commands, will my dog have to continue to wear the Collar Receiver? Is the Collar Receiver waterproof? Can I use the SD-105C Yard Trainer on aggressive dogs? Will I get exactly 100 metres of range with the SD-105C Yard Trainer? How long can I continuously deliver static stimulation to my dog? While the static stimulation is unpleasant, it is harmless to your dog. Electronic training devices require interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results. 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 dog is injured or its mobility is otherwise impaired, contact your veterinarian or professional trainer before use. Your dog may need to wear the Collar Receiver from time to time for reinforcement. Yes. When the batteries need to be replaced, make sure the battery door gasket is free from dirt and debris. 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. The range you get with your SD-105C Yard Trainer will vary according to terrain, weather, 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. The maximum amount of time you can press the continuous static stimulation button and deliver static stimulation to your dog continuously is 8 seconds. After 8 seconds, the Remote Transmitter will time-out, and the continuous static stimulation button must be released and pressed again What do I do if my dog s neck becomes red and irritated? How can I get replacement batteries? 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. CR2032 batteries can either be purchased through the Customer Care Centre or at any store that sells camera batteries. EN FR Can I use the SD-105C Yard Trainer with more than one dog? No. The SD-105C Yard Trainer is a 1-dog system. TROUBLESHOOTING The answers to these questions should help you solve any problem you have with this system.
