well, it is to be tested tomorrow but.....................
the remote was set to programme 6. Programme 6 does not deliver a full number 9 correction. it only delivers a mild stimulation, more like a number 4 sooooooooooooooo it's not bothering him because it's not shocking him, it's just tickling him. Obviously as a pup he was more sensitive to it but now he's a "big boy" he's tough and strong (so he thinks anyway) and he can tolerate it.
Remote reprogrammed to programme 7 which will deliver the full shock if needed with out any beep warnings (took that advice off Bev, thank-you)
Of course I will refind his stimulation level in the morning and retrain for a while but hopefully that's the answer. The correction was only mild so nothing more than irritating to him.
Yes of course, thank you bev. I always have it tight, sometimes I think it's too tight but I can get a finger under it and it doesn't choke him so it must be ok
