That's the real point, as I see it. They aren't the same. Each type of stimuation has a different character; one sharp & crisp, the other pulsating. Also, 'low, medium, hi' is different on momentary & continuous.The real question is when to use them and why?
Clarity is age related.At 82 I need almost continuous stimulation! Sometimes it may be necessary to ad a bit of momentary at the proper time also. When you get to 82 you will know exactlly of which I speak. Where is that smiley when I need it? Bill
He does in the original series, but in the revised edition he does mention nicking in momentary mode.It you follow TRT by Mike Lardy, he tells you which he uses in specific situations. As I recall, he uses continuous (a one second count) during ecollar conditioning but then switches to momentary when he forces (pile, TT and swimby). After that I would say that it depends on the situation and the dog.
