Another ecollar poll

Here's another question about ecollars.

I have narrowed it down to two collars. The TT field 90 or the TT classic 70. I am used to the preset levels and like knowing what level it is on without looking. I currently have a sport 50 that I got a few years ago to train my lab so I am used to the way the TT's are set up.

I know that you can stimulate a nick with a continuous only collar but was wondering what your experiences are with them. Is there anyone out there that uses the nick function on your collar?

Also both of the collars I mentioned have a tone button. Does anyone use this to train for a recall?

I use Con. for basic training, and Vibe. for warning.

I like con. because you can apply collar until the dog complies.

I only usee the nick when having a dog walk at heal and starts to get to far ahead, to far behind, wanders, etc. but having both is real handy even if you only use it occasionaly.

I also am a big fan of the tone button. I train my dogs to come on the tone.

I couldn't do without both and I want a tone on my next collar.

Times I want it on continuously until she complies - especially f0r a young dog doing yard work. and transitioning from the check cord to the collar.
Other times i just want to remind an older dog with a quick nick.

For the well-trained dog I'd like to have a tone to use as a little reminder.

Wasn't until I attended the Rick Smith Foundations Seminar that I really felt competent in using the collar.

Well said.

I use nick 90% of the time. Only use continuous when he ignores the nick, which doesn't seem to happen often.

wow, I guess both wins it huh? I use both because I train with my e-collar, a lot of people claim to but really dont. I have never had a need and probly never will to use constant stim in the field, EB's are soft when it comes to the collar and it doesnt take a strong shot to get the resaults you want. I use constant stim in the yard, I utilize it to train the pup and let him know that when we get the desired resault, the stimulation stops, within reason of course, there is a lot of debate out there on this training method, but in my experience, it works very well
