Q. What is the difference between continuous and momentary stimulation?
What is the difference between continuous and momentary stimulation?

A. The continuous button on a collar provides continuous stimulation for a limited period of time. Every remote collar has an internal cut off at about 8 to 10 seconds. This means you can hold the continuous button down but the collar will only provide stimulation for 10 seconds and then it stops. Many collars have a "momentary button" often referred to as a "NICK BUTTON" This button only provides a very quick stimulation (less then 1/2 of 1 second) The "Nick" button is a very effective tool. When the training is done correctly the "Nick" is used far more than the continuous button on the collar.
