1. Introduction to the Dog Fence
After the Pet Stop® electronic pet fence is carefully installed, we install a flag, or a ribbon boundary over the wire. Your pet is then led from the house on a leash by a trained Canine Safety professional. He or she will assist you and your dog in first recognizing the importance of avoiding the new Pet Stop® boundary. After this objective is achieved, then and only then, under tightly controlled conditions, your pet is allowed to experience a small negative correction. Our professional will then super-reinforce the positive correct behavior for returning to the safe area.
This is all done with all fairness and honesty to your dog. No trusted family member will ever be allowed to call, or tease your dog into the pet fence correction zone!
The body language of your dog’s training experience is explained to you at every step, so you can learn what your dog’s needs are. Next, while the lesson is still fresh, you and your dog are simply guided around the rest of the new boundaries of the electric fence, all the while demonstrating the correct warning and positive reinforcement techniques for your pet. After the entire yard has been shown to your pet, we all relax and rest for a few minutes in your pet’s new safe area and usually present a few “goodies” for the well-behaved doggie.
2. Repeating the Training Process
A few minutes after relaxing outside (after the introduction), we all move inside to explain the process once again and present Canine Safety Systems’ Six Rules of Training Success. We have taken great pains to simplify my life’s farming observations, degree in animal science, and veterinary technician experience, into just six rules of observation and five to ten days of repetition training. Every dog is different, and we want you to take all the time with us you feel you need.
All of your questions will be answered to your satisfaction before we leave your property – that is our promise to you.
Just a few minutes once or twice a day of repeating these simple techniques, will train your dog to enjoy a new-found freedom and purpose within your family. You all will benefit from years of peace of mind and enjoy spare time doing what you want, outside, safe and together.
3. Observing Your Pet
After we leave and you have trained your pets with our guidelines, it will be time to gradually let them have more and more freedom outside. In just 10 days you will be able to just
watch them carefully while they play safely in their new world.
If any changes in your dog’s behavior should arise, they should be reported to us at Canine Safety Systems to see if your Pet Stop ® system or training procedures need to be modified. Pet Stop® makes this easy and fast by its unique ability to program all the features the collar has to offer, over the phone! Trained professionals are available for this free phone service 6 days a week. As time passes you will need to observe them less and less, until at last the flags are all gone.
Your dog will come to trust you and the system even if you sometimes forget to put the collar on. We never suggest you stop observing your pets. (You would never do that for your children, right?). You can now relax and rely on the most dependable USA built equipment on the market today. A quick glance outside while your dogs are playing once and a while will give you plenty of warning should your fence need service or adjustment.
