    Default Tri Tronics stim levels

    I searched and couldnt find it, hoping someone can help me out. I have always had Dogtra collars and just got a Flyway. Does the intensity scale go like this??:

    1 low
    1 mid
    1 high
    2 low
    2 mid
    2 high
    3 low
    3 mid
    3 high
    and so on and so on......


    thanks
    RJ

    I feel that a 3 low is less aversive than a high 2 on most dogs, etc

    Someone else may be able to give you the technical aspects, but at least on the continuous mode, I do not believe the levels are sequential. I believe a high 3 is more aversive for the dog than a low 4 and maybe even a medium 4. I'm not sure about the momentary mode as I rarely use it.

    There was a post that explained this and Chris just recently resurfaced it.
    It is called Tritronics ecollar stimulation 101. I don't know how to copy and paste on my iPhone

    My opinion based on a neon test light on the collar probes: level 1 low, med, high
    level 2 low, med, high
    level 3, low, med, high
    etc., etc.
    Turn the dial to 1 you have a low, med and high. Turn to two, low, med. and high, etc.

    A high 2 is higher than a low 3 or a medium 3.

    Makes sense to me that you wouldn't want to go sequentially. It'd require you to go from a high 2 to a low 3 then to a medium 3 if they were sequential.

    I believe with the Flyway the low,med,high only apply to the momentary buttons. The continuous has only 6 levels.

    There's an easy way to figure this out: strap it to your arm and start pushing buttons. Anything my dog eats, drinks, or feels, I eat, drink or feel first.

    Are you serious? I have to say that I have never eaten dog food, even the stew looking canned kind, and I see no reason to try my collar on, I know it hurts, that's the whole point.
