The SDF-R allows you to replace an existing receiver or add another dog to your training system. This collar receiver features four adjustable correction levels, with beep and vibrate-only modes. An "Anti-linger" feature prevents dogs from constantly testing the boundary of your In-Ground Fence System. The SDF-R is compatible with the SD-400, SD-400S, SD-400CAMO, SD-800, SD-800CAMO, SD-1200, SD-1800, SD2000 and SD-3200.

Important: The proper fit and placement of the Collar Receiver is important for effective training. The Contact Points must have direct contact with your dog’s skin.
To ensure a proper fit, follow these steps:
1. With your dog standing (3A), center the Collar Receiver so the Contact Points are underneath your dog’s neck, touching the skin (3B). 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. 2. The Collar Receiver should fit snugly, yet loose enough to allow one finger to fit between the strap and your dog’s neck (3C). 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 Receiver.
Care and Cleaning To ensure the effectiveness of this product and the comfort and safety of your dog, check the fit of his collar frequently. This guide describes proper collar fitting. 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.
To prevent skin irritation from occurring:
The Collar Receiver should not be worn for more than 8 hours out of every 24-hour period.
Your dog’s neck and the Contact Points must be washed weekly with a washcloth and mild hand soap, then rinsed thoroughly.
