Rated 4 out of 5 by Sebascodegan Solid Product
The SportDog DSL 400 is a great, solid product. I've been using the device on my English Setter for almost 10 years and find it simple and dependable. I especially like the fact it uses a replaceable battery (123A) which can be replaced in the field, unlike a rechargeable unit.
The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that turning the device on and off requires two hands; this is problematic when you'd like to [quietly] rest your dog, but have a shotgun in one hand. To turn the collar off, one must rotate the cap of the battery compartment while holding the base of the beeper.
I understand simplicity is what makes the device durable, dependable, and affordable, but a rubberized button or the like would make this great beeper a truly superb one.

Good product for the price. I wanted something loud enough to know where the dog was so it served its purpose. The on/off dial is not a good design, other than that, it is a good product.
