I am sometimes getting variable responses from my dog on a given setting with my e-collar. For some reason, say at level 3 out of 7, maybe 5% of the time, he will sometimes completely ignore the stimulus (possibly just not tight enough) or actually become vocal from discomfort. Again, it's rare but seems odd. I'm guessing it's one of two things.
One thing Iíve noticed is depending on where the prongs sit on my hand when I test it, I can get quite a variable stimulus for the same setting. Can the same happen on a dog if the prongs are at just the right location, and if not placed in the exact same location every time, he will receive variable stimulus levels for the same setting?
Or do I need a new collar? Itís a sport dog 425s and after reading on here quite a bit, realized sometimes theyíre better off in the garbage. I would just like to know if this is typical with any collar before I invest in another.
