Q. What should I do if my dog does not really respond to a nick at a certain level but will respond to continuous on that same level? Does this mean that my level is too low?
I had a question about remote collar training. I have already conditioned my 7 month old female pitbull for the collar. My biggest question is, what should I do if my dog does not really respond to a nick at a certain level but will respond to continuous on that same level. Does this mean that my level is too low? Also when you use your dotra 1900ncp, generally for a 7 month old dog what level do you use. I know that stem level does not have correlation with age, but I was just wondering about what level you use for this age. Please get back to me asap, thank you.

A. If the dog isn't responding to a nick then I would check that the collar is making a connection. If it's making adequate contact with her neck then I would think that you need to play around with the level.

There is no such thing as a standard level for any dog or any age of dog. Dogs are all different and the stimulation level can vary from one moment to the next with the same dog, depending on the level of distraction.
