    Although I have whacked myself on the calf with a heeling stick, I seriously doubt that someone can differentiate between a high 4, 5 or 6.

    Yep. None of it will hurt you. If you're willing to shock the dog, don't you think you should know what it feels like? I think we'd see a lot less dogs whose owners ruined them with improper e-collar use if folks tried it on themselves first.

    And you should try the dog food. Some of it actually ain't that bad!

    Try it, you might be surprised. I only have the Tri-tronics sport basic, but there's a real difference between 2.5, 3.5, and 4.5.

    The 4.5 continuous is pretty dang hot, and that's as far as i cared to go. It would certainly cause a change in my behavior.

    I'm in the camp that you use what ever level meets your needs and not try to split hairs. I normally use a combination of both momentary and continuous so I prefer the Pro 500 but also have a Pro 200 because of the three momentary levels. I've found the stimulations are more consistent when I use the longer prongs.

    I do have a couple of questions that are some what related though.......

    Do you get the same level of stimulation from a receiver battery that is at half charge or less as you get with a fully charged receiver battery? And How often do you charge your e-collar units?

    I can tell you this. A high 3 burn stings, a high 4 stings worse. A high 5 and 6 made my head spin--as soon as the stun started the collar goes flying on those levels. I don't recommend trying it but curiosity gets the best of me. I've also touched the electric fence that keeps my cows in. That was a different kind of pain there.

    Does it depend on placement and proper fit?
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.
