The SportDOG Brand® Launcher system lets you remotely control the launch of birds or training dummies from up to 1/2-mile away. The Transmitter sends a signal to the Receiver, which can be used with the SportDOG™ Launcher Basket, and can also be fitted to most brands of bird launchers or throwers. The system can be used to train retrievers to remain steady and mark falling birds. It can also be used in pointing dog training to reinforce steadiness when a bird flushes. In Normal Mode, the Transmitter can be set to control up to four Receivers, and each Receiver can control up to nine devices, using SportDOG cables, for a total of 36 possible devices. In Expanded Mode, the Transmitter can control up to 36 independent Receivers. To add realism to training situations, the Transmitter can signal the Receiver to emit the sound of a duck quack, pheasant cackle, or shotgun report. By altering distances between the Transmitter and Receiver(s), and tailoring the sounds to the situation you’re training for, the system provides countless options for hunters and trainers who train their dogs for everything from hunting to hunt tests to field trials.
SportDOG has just announced the release of two new e-collar systems. These two systems will be the first e-collars to introduce dog biometrics into an e-collar platform. Using SportDOG’s BodyGuard technology, the receiver will take readings on key biometrics of your dog and alert the handler if those metrics get out of a safety zone.

Dehydration in dogs occurs when the loss of water in a dog’s body exceeds the amount of intake. Dehydration is a spectrum that can range in severity from mild to severe. In serious cases of dehydration, dogs can suffer from collapse, organ failure, and even death. Severely dehydrated dogs require immediate emergency care from his or her veterinarian. If you suspect that your dog is severely dehydrated, contact the veterinarian right away.
