The 24 hour contact pad was designed to solve inherent design challenges that have plagued the electronic training collar systems since their inception. These are: Long wear-time causing skin tissue breakdown – As a rule, most instruction manuals call for limited continuous wear-time with removal of the device from the dog's neck each day providing a neck-resting period. This is counter-productive- a barking dog is just waiting for the collar to be taken off, so it can bark again – when using a containment system, one must kennel the dog during this neck-resting period.
Inconsistent connection to the dog's sensory system– To offset the wear-time issue, manufacturers offer longer electrodes with the suggestion that a loose collar strap fit would assist and provide benefit from neck sores. This creates performance inconsistency; as the two electrodes must consistently touch the dog's skin for the dog to detect the presence of the stimulation and to understand what level is being deployed.
Low level stimulation performance – Subtleness is extremely important during training sessions. Therein, the selection of the most appropriate level of stimulation is tremendously important when the owner/trainer is trying to teach the dog new commands with a remote trainer. During these sessions, the trainer doesn't want the dog to become overwhelmed as learning momentum will be impacted, and all positive efforts may be lost. However, from a technical stand-point, at these low-levels, it is the "worst case" scenario for the electronic circuitry; requiring a high degree of performance from the electronic circuitry to maintain energy delivery to the dog consistently and effectively.
Each of the above problems greatly impacts the overall benefits for using an electronic collar as a teaching tool. As in most cases, inconsistent messages are being sent to the dog causing confusion for the dog. In this confused state, the dog's reactions can cause the owner to turn-up the "juice"; over-tighten the collar strap, or lose patience – either one, or all, pushing the dog beyond necessity.Features:
- The stimulator's output is redirected through many conductors spaced within a small centralized and concentrated area. In this manner, the energy is enhanced improving the excitation of the nerve endings; wherein concise, consistent, and efficient messages can be delivered to the dog's sensory system without causing any tissue breakdown while providing the proper collar strap tightness, and for 24/7 usage.
- By providing this improved interface, the dog will be able to learn what is expected from its human partner quicker, easier, and with less confusion (stress), and possibly at lower levels of stimulation. Conversely, the owner/trainer can remove the fear-factor concerning neck sores leading to unnecessary veterinary care costs.
- The 24 hour contact pad is 1/2 inch wide, 3/4 inch deep, and will adjust from 1 1/8 inch to 1 3/8 inch spacing between the two electrodes located on the stimulator's housing.
