I'm trying to sort out what kind of e-collar for my GSD. Training goals are not well-defined yet, but will involve off-lead scent and search type things both indoors and outdoors, also some cat/chicken/etc. compatibility training.
I've been looking at E-Collar Technologies' assortment (link
), getting confused. I have no exposure to e-collars.
Aside from range and lights, the big differences seem to be in either a tapping mode or a tone. They all have 100 levels of continuous or momentary stim.
Why would tone or tap be better for a particular application?
