Getting Started
See Important Safety INformation in your operating
guide! Read and understand all safety information
before using this product.
The SportDOG Brand® TEK ™ Series Location and Training System has
been proven safe, comfortable and effective for all dogs over 8 pounds.
Consistent, correct use of this product allows you to track your dog,
reinforce commands, and correct misbehavior from up to 7 miles. The
handheld device receives your location from its built-in GPS antenna
and receives location updates from the GPS antenna mounted on the
collar to track the location of your dog. The handheld device sends a
signal, activating the E-Collar module to deliver a harmless stimulation.
With proper training, a dog will learn to associate the signal with a
command. Like all SportDOG™ products, this model features adjustable
stimulation levels so you can tailor the stimulation level to your dog’s
temperament, eliminating the risk of over-correction.
IMPORTANT: The TEK ™ SERIES Location and Training System has
a range of up to 7 miles. Depending on the way you hold the handheld
device, the maximum range may vary. For consistent results at longer
ranges, hold the handheld device in a vertical position away from your
body and above your head. Terrain, weather, vegetation, transmissions
from other radio devices, and other factors will affect the maximum
range.
TEK™ SERIES Location and Training System contains:
• Handheld Device, GPS Collar with E-Collar Module, Wall Charger
• Lanyard, Long Contact Points, Allen Wrench, Test Light
• Operating Guide, Basic Training Information

Fit the GPS collar with E-Collar Module
Put the collar around your dog’s neck and adjust to find the proper fit,
making sure the GPS antenna is at the back of your dog’s neck for best
reception. Fasten the collar so the fit is snug; yet loose enough to allow
one finger to fit between the strap and the dog’s neck. Fit is important
because a loose collar may cause inconsistent performance.
