Our training method is so effective that owners need to spend only 5-10 minutes, three times a day, during the five-day training phase, to teach pets their new boundaries. Dogs love the training because it is painless, fun, upbeat, and comes with lots of tasty treats!

What Will It Feel Like For My Dog?

GentleSteps™ utilizes ultra-low levels of training collar stimulation during the critical initial training phase that leaves your dog happy and secure in the safety of your yard. The barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation are felt as just a tickle, similar to a static discharge from touching a doorknob. This unique soft-touch training method allows Pet Stop® clients to focus on more positive experiences such as freedom in the yard to run and play

How Long Will The Training Take?

Just like us, each individual pet’s personality and learning curve are different and the pet fencing experts at Canine Safety Systems will customize the training experience to what best suits your pet and provide the initial fence training to get you started. Most pets are trained to the fence in less than 2 weeks, and if your pet requires follow-up training, we will assist you. Contact us today to learn more about our GentleSteps™ training.

Our Gentle Approach

GentleSteps™ Fence Training by Canine Safety Systems will teach your dog his new hidden fence, and it will do it without frightening or stressing him out. As the name implies, this training uses numerous tiny little steps of harmless static corrections that feel much like tickles. The tickles really do feel like tickles, and we encourage you to feel them for yourself.

Break Down Of Our Training Process

Training your dog to our Pet Stop® system is not complicated.
It can be broken down into these 3 simple parts:

  1. Introduction to the Dog Fence

After we carefully install your Pet Stop electronic pet fence, we’ll also install a temporary flag or ribbon boundary over your wire. One of our trained Pet Stop Professionals will lead your pet from the house on a leash. He or she will first assist you and your pet in recognizing the importance of avoiding the new Pet Stop boundary. After we’ve achieved this objective, we’ll allow your pet to experience a small correction. We do this under tightly controlled conditions. Once your pet returns to the safe area, our trainer will positively reinforce the correct behavior of returning inside the safe area. It is vitally important that your pet can trust everyone involved in their training and, for this reason nobody should ever attempt to call or tease your pet into the correction field.

We’ll explain the body language of your pet’s training experience at every step, so you can learn what your pet’s needs are. Next, while the lesson is still fresh in your pet’s mind, our trainer will guide you and your pet around the rest of the new boundary lines while demonstrating the correct warning and positive reinforcement techniques for your pet. After your pet has seen the entire yard, we all relax for a few minutes in your pet’s new area and usually present a few “goodies” for the well-behaved family member.

The key to a successful system is our boundary training! The Canine Safety training procedures have been successful in the training of thousands of animals.  Flags placed every six feet help you train your pet adapt to the customized boundaries of your fence. By spending just fifteen minutes a day working with your dog, he will be fully trained in seven to ten days. You can train as many pets as you want on the same system as long as they are each wearing their own receiver collar. You can adapt these same techniques to suit the special needs of animals with physical and visual disabilities.

Sometimes we train other kinds of pets to our pet stop systems.

Many times we find that homeowners have more than one kind of pet – Some have cats, potbelly pigs, goats, or even cows or donkeys. We have a containment and training solution for you!

Pet Stop makes special order collars for many kinds of pets, large and small.

Pet Stop collars can be programmed in so many ways and even farm animals are not exempt from receiving the safety they deserve. Donkeys and small dairy heifers are contained by a special collar that has not only the most power in its correction, but, has a unique vibrator warning in addition to the sound warning!
