TEK-V2LT:
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 leash/lead to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
When using a separate collar for a leash/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.
SPORTDOG.COM
• 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 the Support section for Remote Trainers
at www.sportdog.com.
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.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
The SportDOG Brand® TEK Series 2.0 Systems have 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 10 miles line of sight.
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 static
stimulation levels so you can tailor the stimulation level to your dog’s temperament, eliminating the risk
of over-correction.
* TEK-V2LT and TEK-2AD have E-Collar functionality. To add E-Collar functionality to your TEK-V2L, you must
purchase the TEK-2T E-Collar Module.
IMPORTANT: THE TEK SERIES 2.0 SYSTEM HAS A RANGE OF UP TO 10 MILES LINE OF
SIGHT. 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.
Do not use this product if your dog is aggressive, or if your dog is prone to aggressive behavior. 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.

GPS COLLAR INDICATOR LIGHT
• The Handheld Device and GPS Collar contain Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries; never incinerate, puncture,
deform, short-circuit, 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.
• Risk of explosion if batteries are charged in areas with high temperature (100° F+ / 38° C).
• Batteries should never be removed from the battery compartment for charging.
• The rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries are not memory sensitive, do not require depletion before
charging and cannot be over charged.
• The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge before the first use.
• When storing the unit for long periods, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge. This should be done
once every 3 to 4 months. Failure to do so will result in decreased battery life.
• You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose
capacity over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience. This is normal. If your operating
time drops to half of the original life, contact the Customer Care Center.
• The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years. When a battery needs replacement, call our Customer Care Center
at 1-800-732-0144. Please do not open the GPS Collar until you have received your replacement.
• When storing the device for an extended time, store within the following temperature range: from 32°F to 77°F
(from 0° to 25°C).

CONVERT A GPS COLLAR TO A GPS COLLAR WITH
E-COLLAR MODULE
To ensure the effectiveness of this product and the comfort and safety of your dog, check the fit of the collar
frequently. If you notice that your dog is experiencing skin irritation, discontinue use of the collar for a few days.
If the condition persists beyond 48 hours, see your veterinarian.
IMPORTANT: The proper fit and placement of the collar is important for effective use.
Please see page 2 for Important Safety Information.
To ensure a proper fit, follow these steps:
1. With your dog standing (A), center the GPS Collar underneath your A
dog’s neck (B). If using an E-Collar Module, ensure the Contact
Points are touching the skin. 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.
B
• 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.
C
2. The collar should fit snugly, yet loose enough to allow one finger to fit between the
strap and your dog’s neck (C).
3. Allow your dog to wear the collar for several minutes, and then recheck the fit. Check
the fit again as your dog becomes more comfortable wearing the collar.
NOTE: To ensure the best reception possible, ensure the GPS antenna is positioned on the
back of your dog’s neck.

The map gives you a geographic reference for tracking, helps you navigate, and displays all available map details.
USER LOCATION
A black arrow in the center of the map displays your GPS location. As you move, the arrow (your location)
remains at the center of the screen, while the map pans around you as needed.
TRACKED ITEMS
Each of your tracked items are represented by their own unique symbol (see “TRACKING ICONS” on page 8).
You can adjust the map settings to show all, none, or selected items.
DOGS
Each tracked dog is represented by an icon in the color you selected to represent that
dog (collar color). Each dog’s breadcrumb trail is also represented in the same color.
When a dog is in an alert state – On-Point, Treed, or Stopped – its icon will change to
the On-Point/Treed Indicator icon. If a dog is moving, its icon will appear as an arrow,
rotating to show the direction of travel. If the Handheld Device is unable to communicate
with a tracked dog’s collar, the dog’s arrow icon will change to an arrow with a hollow
fill. The icon will not update until communication is restored.
HUNTERS
Each hunter who shares his/her Handheld Device information is also represented by a
color-coded icon and breadcrumb trail. When moving, the hunter’s icon will appear as
a triangle that rotates to show direction of travel. If the Handheld Device is unable to
communicate with a tracked hunter’s Handheld Device, the hunter’s triangle icon will change to a triangle with a
hollow fill. The icon will not update until communication is restored.
NORTH ARROW
The North Up setting locks the rotation of the map and the North Arrow. To set North Up, press the Menu Button

The Name List displays details about all of your currently tracked items. Three dogs/
hunters are visible at a time so the 3 User-Defined Stim Buttons can be utilized. Use the
Up/Down Arrow Keys to quickly scroll through the list if you have more than 3 tracked
items. Hunters are automatically added to the end of the Name List.
For example: In this Name List, Dog 1 is in the first row and will receive a continuous
static stimulation set at level 1 when Stim Button 1 is pressed, Oz is in the second row
and will receive a continuous static stimulation at level 1 when the Stim Button 2 is
pressed, and Roxy is in the third row and will receive a continuous static stimulation at
level 1 when Stim Button 3 is pressed.
