Continuous Stimulation vs. Momentary Stimulation

Most collars have two kinds of stimulation: continuous and momentary.

Continuous stimulation allows you to control the length of the correction. With continuous stimulation you can press the button and release it and the stimulation will cut on when you press the button and off when you release it.

You can also press the button down and hold it down for a longer stimulation. Today's collars have a safety function that will "time out" on the collar when the button has been pressed down for more than 8 to 10 seconds (depending on the model) or until the user releases the transmitter button.

Momentary stimulation is a quick preset "attention getter" that lasts for a fraction of a second, no matter how long the button is held down.

On most collars it will cut on and cut off faster than you can press and release the button.

As a general rule, I recommend continuous stimulation for training. The majority of published training methods on the market today use continuous stimulation. Momentary stimulation can be used to correct known commands with trained dogs.
