Hermes is set at what is a lighter static shock. I believe that I should be willing to feel what I do to a dog. Held it against my inside wrist and hubby zapped it. Startles even when expecting it but doesn't burn like the fly swatter I've got myself with a few times. So many people use the e-collars incorrectly and set too high.

Hermes has only been zapped about a dozen times since I got it. He does get buzzed to get him to pay attention to me when he's off doing who knows what somewhere or something he really needs to reconsider like counter surfing. He wears the collar maybe 6 hours a day.

Hermes doesn't go after chicks. Never has as Ive always introduced chicks with a "Mine" to the dogs when young. He won't step within 2 feet of a broody. He did that twice and had just happened to pick Satan's own hen for his curiousity. She's the reason hubby won't collect eggs.

I'll probably be done with the collar in the next month. I'm having to charge it every 2 weeks because it just sits on but not in use unless we're doing specific things. Only took zapping twice to learn to leave the elk alone. Elk and deer will kill dogs.

I'll keep using collars as needed which probably won't be again once done. Last pair sat hanging by the backdoor almost a decade without use once I got stubborn Athena to leave the deer alone. Only ordered this one after couldn't get through Hermes head that deer were to be left alone.

The spray bottle worked to stop him from grabbing chickens mostly. He then decided he likes the spray bottle. I can take it on trips to use to give him a drink in a moving car.
That is so funny

I did do lots of reading before using the first collar on the proper use. If it needs used it must be instantly. No waiting. Shouldn't be used for minor corrections. Whole bunch of other stuff. There is no intuitive use of them.

Don't leave the collar on for long periods, especially if you use vibrate frequently. Which I do sometimes. Hermes gets his off and repositioned next time on. Made the mistake of putting it in same spot on him early on. He has very sensitive skin. Friction burn like when I use the wand massager on my knee too long. I felt so bad. He was more upset about the ointment I kept putting on him. I quit trying to use vibrate to teach him when to stop when pressuring the chickens to move and went back to the pvc pole. The pole has its own issues because the chickens have been taught it's for herding them and they will move away from it. How dare it come close or actually touch them lightly.
