    For contrast definitely Avery KW-1, it doesn't blend with anything.

    I agree but I consider it a refusal, when I give the dog a right angle back and he takes a left over. Especially if I used attrition the first time, but on the second cast he does the same thing he gets a nick.

    By "casting error" I mean a dog that is confused as to where it is supposed to go for a number of possible reasons, can't see the handler well, movement behind the line
    I will never purposely use the collar for errors like that and would rather miss a correction than nick for a mistake.
    Purposely avoiding or caving to factors or going where he wants to go is a different story.
