I have a young female coming along very well in FF and am wanting to get started w/ CC. She hasn't seen a collar yet. I am very inexperienced using an e-collar and it's the biggest aspect in training that I have ZERO confidence in (in myself, that is). My confidence is just fair for everything else. I tried to CC my male using the Dobbs book a year ago and just don't like the theory of teaching to "turn off the collar" using a continuous burn. I was getting poor results with him (likely my fault) and put down the SD collar (it's gone, in fact). Recently, I have been trying to get as much training advice as I can and I have the Lardy Total E-collar conditioning coming in the next few days.
Anyway, I just bought a new Flyway G2 EXP at a discount. I have spent quite a bit of time researching threads on this subject, but haven't found any consensus (I know... I probably won't) on using the momentary button for "nicks" vs. continuous for "nicks". So, before I unwrap the Flyway, I'm wondering if I should send it back and go for the 100. The extra $ for the 500isn't worth it for me.
For those that use both momentary and continuous for "nicks" which do you prefer, and why? My thought process was "I'll use the momentary more, so I want more fine incremental adjustment". Might be flawed thinking? Thank you in advance. This forum is great.
