Know where your dog is even when you canít see him! Made especially for hunting pheasants with pointing dogs in tall grass or ruffed grouse and woodcock in thick brush. The SportDog Deluxe DSL 400 Beeper Locator is the most advanced upland beeper on the market and is audible from up to 400 yards away with 4 beeper sounds and 3 run/point modes. On the left hand side of the unit choose from beep, hawk scream, bobwhite recall or trill sounds on one dial; on the other dial choose from the 3 run/point modes: 1) silent run/beep every second on point 2) beep every 5 seconds while running/every second on point 3) beep every 10 seconds while running/beep every second on point. Setting 4 on that dial is a battery indicator that will give you a quick high tone double beep for good battery or a long low tone single beep for low battery (replacement needed). Also choose between high and low beeper volume on the switch, always starting a dog new to the beeper on low volume in a training scenario prior to going into a live hunting situation. The right hand knob on the unit serves as the on/off switch.
Due to the volume of the beeper locator, it needs to ride on the back of the dogís neck. It can be used along with an e-collar receiver on the same collar strap, or if using the beeper locator alone, please purchase a dummy collar to keep the beeper locator in place.

The SportDog Deluxe DSL 400 Beeper Locator is fully waterproof, has a user replaceable 3-volt lithium CR123A and is covered by a 2 year manufacturer warranty.
I added this to an older electronic Sportdog collar that does not a locator option. It is a very easy to use basic beeper. The only drawback is no warning when the battery dies. I always carry an extra battery just in case.
