TEK-V1.5LT:
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/leash to the electronic collar; it will cause excessive pressure on the contacts.
• When using a separate collar for a lead/leash, 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 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 Contact
Points. 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.
TEK-V1.5L:
Please read and follow the instructions in this manual. Proper fit of the collar is important.
•
•
•
•
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.
When using a separate collar for a lead/leash, don’t put pressure on the electronic collar.
Wash the dog’s neck area and collar weekly with a damp cloth.
•
•
Avoid chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic components.
Do not store the TEK Series 1.5 System where prolonged exposure to temperature extremes may occur, because
permanent damage may result.
When storing the device for an extended time, store within the temperature range of 32°F to 77°F
(from 0° to 25°C).
Do not leave the device exposed to a heat source or in a high-temperature location, such as in the sun in an
unattended vehicle. To prevent damage, remove the device from the vehicle or store it out of direct sunlight,
such as in the glove box.
In a typical training situation a user will not exceed 100 seconds of transmission time per hour, equating to 294
unique commands.
Always confirm legal hunting times with the appropriate local hunting and shooting associations.
Modification or changes to this equipment not expressly approved by Radio Systems Corporation may void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment.

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS
The SportDOG ® Brand TEK Series 1.5 Systems have been proven safe, comfortable, and effective for all dogs over
8 lbs. Consistent, correct use of this product allows you to track your dog, reinforce commands, and correct
misbehavior from up to 7 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. The TEK-V1.5LT model features adjustable static stimulation levels so you
can tailor the stimulation level to your dog’s temperament, eliminating the risk of over-stimulation.
* TEK-V1.5LT and TEK-2AD have E-Collar functionality. To add E-Collar functionality to your TEK-V1.5L, you must
purchase the TEK Series E-Collar Module.
IMPORTANT: THE TEK SERIES 1.5 SYSTEM HAS A RANGE OF UP TO 7 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, 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.

ABOUT RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
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.
Do not short circuit, mix old and new batteries, dispose of in fire or expose to water. When batteries are
stored or disposed, they must be protected from shorting.
The battery should be charged in areas with temperatures ranging from 32°F to 113°F / 0°C to 45°C.
Recharging the battery outside of this temperature range can cause the battery to overheat, explode,
or catch fire.
Batteries should never be removed from the battery compartment for charging.
Keep batteries away from children.
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 to 5 years. When a battery needs replacement, call our Customer Care
Center. Please do not open the Handheld Device or GPS Collar until you have received your replacement.
When storing the device for an extended time, store within the temperature range of 32°F to 77°F
(from 0° to 25°C).

FIT THE GPS COLLAR OR GPS COLLAR + 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 3 for Important Safety Information.
To ensure a proper fit, follow these steps:
1.
•
•
With your dog standing (A), center the GPS Collar underneath
your 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 2 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
A
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.
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, position the GPS antenna on the back of
your dog’s neck.

TRAINING
GENERAL TRAINING TIPS
BEFORE TRAINING WITH THIS PRODUCT (TEK-V1.5LT)
You will have the most success using this product if you always remember to teach a command before trying to
reinforce the command with stimulation. We recommend that you read the enclosed Training Guide and watch the
enclosed DVD before training. Your training will be easier and proceed faster if you follow the guidelines in these
teaching assistants. In addition, always keep the following training tips in mind:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Eliminate a single misbehavior or teach a single obedience command at a time. If you move too fast with the
training, your dog may become confused.
Be consistent. Give your dog a tone, vibration, or static stimulation for each misbehavior.
Do not overcorrect your dog. Use as little stimulation 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 TEK Series 1.5 Handheld Device for applying tone, vibration, or static 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.
If your dog has a timid reaction to the tone, vibration, or static stimulation (especially the first couple
of times), do not be alarmed. Redirect his attention to a simple and appropriate behavior (i.e. a known
command, such as “Sit”).
Never use the TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking + E-Collar to correct or eliminate any form of aggressive behavior.
If your dog exhibits such behavior, contact a professional trainer. Aggression in dogs is the result of many
factors – it may be a learned behavior 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.
TRAIN YOUR DOG
The TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking + E-Collar System supports six types of stimulation: continuous, momentary,
rising, programmable, tone, and vibration. The continuous static stimulation mode has multiple intensity levels
so you can match the correction to your dog’s temperament.
TO FIND YOUR DOG’S RECOGNITION LEVEL
NOTE: Always start at the lowest level and work your way up. Every dog is different and you cannot predict
where your dog’s Recognition Level will be. Watch closely for any slight change in behavior that tells you your
dog is feeling the stimulation.
For training efficiency, it is important to find the right intensity level for your dog. This is called the “recognition
level”, at which your dog looks around in curiosity, or flicks his ears.
Your dog should not vocalize 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.
With the GPS Collar + E-Collar Module turned on and properly fitted to your dog, select DOG TRAINING.
The DOG TRAINING screen displays.
2. Press the down arrow on the Menu Navigation Pad to lower the intensity level to 1.
3. Press the stim button next to the icon (C) to apply continuous static stimulation for 1 to 2 seconds.
4. If your dog shows no reaction to level 1, press the up arrow on the Menu Selection Pad to increase go to level
2 and repeat the process.
5. Continue to increase the intensity level until you find your dog’s recognition level. Once you find your dog’s
recognition level, this is the level you should use when you begin a training exercise.
6. If you have progressed to level 20 while searching for your dog’s recognition level and your dog continues to
show no response, check to see if the GPS Collar + E-Collar Module is snug against your dog’s neck. Then go
back to 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 longer
Contact Points.
NOTE: If after completing all of these steps your dog still does not indicate he is feeling static stimulation;
please contact the Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-0144.

CHANGE COMMUNICATION SETTINGS
The COMMUNICATION screen allows you to set the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel. The User ID is a
unique identifier used by the Handheld Device and shared with the GPS Collar / GPS Collar + E-Collar Module.
On TEK-V1.5L the GPS-channel is the radio channel used for communication between the GPS Collar and the
Handheld Device, while on TEK-V1.5LT the E-Collar channel is the radio channel used for communication between
the E-Collar Module and the Handheld Device. The collar learns the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel
during the pairing process.
The Handheld Device uses an ID value to distinguish it from other Handheld Devices. This ID is factory set and for
most users will never need attention. The ID value can be viewed on either the STATUS or ABOUT screens.
If the factory-set User ID on your Handheld Device conflicts with another Handheld Device or similar device, you
should change the User ID to eliminate the conflict. Alternately, if two users want to have the ability to monitor
the same dog(s) with each user operating his own Handheld Device, they can choose to set their User IDs to match.
The only reason to change the GPS or E-Collar channel is if there is outside interference (other radios in the area)
causing communications problems.
TO CHANGE THE USER ID
NOTE: Changing User ID requires that the collar be paired again to the Handheld Device (See STEP 3 on page 17).
From the main menu, select SETTINGS > COMMUNICATION > USER ID.
Press the up or down arrows to select a user ID number from 0 – 100.
NOTE: The User ID value is a number from 0 to 100 that is used to alter the actual ID value that the Handheld
Device uses for communication. A value of 0 is used to revert back to the factory set ID.

FAQ’S & TROUBLESHOOTING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How old does a dog have to be before
using the TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking /
GPS Tracking + E-Collar System?
Your dog should be able to learn basic obedience commands such
as “Sit” or “Stay”. The collar may be too large for dogs under 8
pounds. Fits neck sizes 10.75” - 23.”
Is the GPS Collar with optional E-Collar
Module waterproof?
Yes. It is waterproof and can be submerged in water to a depth of
25 feet.
Can my GPS Collar with optional
E-Collar Module be used around
salt water?
If the collar is used in or around salt water, the collar should be
rinsed with fresh water following each use.
Is the TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS
Tracking + E-Collar System capable of
multi-dog tracking/training?
Yes. The TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
Systems are expandable to a maximum of 12 dogs. Additional
collars must be purchased separately (see back cover).
Can I use the TEK Series 1.5 GPS
Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
System on aggressive dogs?
We do not recommend any of our products be used on aggressive
dogs. We recommend that you contact your local veterinarian or
professional trainer to determine if your dog might be aggressive.
Will I get exactly 7 miles of range with
the TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS
Tracking + E-Collar System?
The range you get with your TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS
Tracking + E-Collar System will vary according to terrain,
weather, and vegetation. To get the maximum amount of range,
please refer to ”HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS” on page 5.
Can I attach a leash/lead to the GPS
Collar?
DO NOT attach a leash/lead to the GPS Collar. You may put a
separate non-metallic collar strap on your dog’s neck and attach
a leash/lead. If the E-Collar Module is installed, be sure the extra
collar does not interfere with the Contact Points.
Can I add maps to the TEK Series 1.5
GPS Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
System?
No. Maps cannot be added to your TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking /
GPS Tracking + E-Collar System.
Can I program my TEK Series 1.5 GPS
Other SportDOG ® Brand systems can be used in conjunction
Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
with your TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
System to work with my other SportDOG® System, but are not compatible.
Brand systems?
Can I organize the way the dogs are
displayed on the tracking/training
screen?
Yes. See “To Set The Order In Dog Lists” on page 22.
How many dogs can I share?
You can share up to 12 dogs. Sharing a dog is the same as adding a
dog to an available slot on your Handheld Device.
Do I need to recalibrate my compass
when I change locations?
For best results it is recommended that the compass be calibrated
after you arrive at a new starting location.
How many way points can I store?
You can store up to 20 way points, which includes if you set a way
point specific to your starting location.
Will the TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking /
GPS Tracking + E-Collar System
interfere with my CB radio?
No. Your TEK Series 1.5 GPS Tracking / GPS Tracking + E-Collar
System will not cause interference with your CB radio.

FAQ’S & TROUBLESHOOTING
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS / TEK-V1.5LT
Once my dog is trained and has
been obeying my commands, will
my dog have to continue to wear
the GPS Collar + E-Collar Module?
Your dog may need to wear the collar from time to time for
reinforcement. Also, many hunters keep the collar on their dog(s) while
hunting for maximum control.
Is the static stimulation safe for
my dog?
While the continuous and/or momentary static stimulation may be
unpleasant, it is harmless to your dog. Electronic training devices require
interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results.
How long can I continuously
deliver static stimulation to my
dog?
The maximum amount of time you can press the Continuous Static
Stimulation Button and deliver static stimulation to your dog
continuously is 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, the Handheld Device
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?
This condition is due to the Contact Points irritating the skin.
Discontinue use of the GPS Collar + E-Collar Module 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.
