Training Your Dog Using A Pet Safe Electric Dog Fence Week 2

Training Your Dog Using A Pet Safe Electric Dog Fence Week 2



During Phase 2 Your dog can now experience the​ higher correction levels of​ the​ dog fence collar. Walk your dog within the​ containment area of​ the​ yard and praise + feed meat treats to​ him. Allow your dog to​ proceed toward the​ training flags. When your dog enters the​ signal field,​ he will experience an​ uncomfortable,​ but harmless,​ static correction. Since this correction may startle your dog,​ he may jump and yelp. This is​ normal. Make sure when this happens,​ you​ quickly pull your dog back into the​ containment area. the​ entire time you​ will need to​ have a​ smile on​ your face and praise him - make sure to​ feed a​ small hot dog bite. Play in​ the​ safe area and do not allow your dog to​ run back to​ the​ house. NEVER PULL or​ CALL YOUR DOG INTO the​ SIGNAL FIELD. Let him decide to​ enter or​ stay within the​ safe area.

You will need to​ begin to​ incorporate "set-ups" in​ your training sessions. a​ "set-up" is​ a​ situation that would normally tempt your dog to​ leave the​ yard,​ such as​ a​ person walking by and crossing the​ boundary,​ or​ another pet outside the​ boundary. These will teach your dog that he needs to​ pay attention to​ his whereabouts,​ regardless of​ the​ situation. Until now,​ the​ training has not been tested under conditions where your dog has a​ heightened level of​ desire. you​ may begin this training by having a​ family member walk out of​ the​ yard. Your dog should still be on​ a​ long leash and wearing his dog fence collar. Remember,​ DO NOT call your dog out of​ the​ boundary!

If your dog refuses to​ follow the​ family member,​ praise him warmly. HE is​ LEARNING. if​ your dog decides to​ follow the​ family member,​ allow him to​ enter the​ signal field and receive a​ correction. Again,​ your dog may respond by jumping and yelping. Quickly pull him back into the​ safe area of​ the​ yard while smiling and praising on​ the​ way. Repeat the​ process with other "set-ups" such as​ other pets,​ a​ ball,​ a​ stick,​ etc... in​ various places around the​ yard. Use something that really excites your pet. Sometimes with dogs that have a​ high food drive,​ you​ can throw some lunch meat or​ a​ hot dog just past the​ flags. This process will cause your dog to​ make a​ choice and it​ is​ a​ critical point in​ his learning process.

If your dog is​ not responding when he enters the​ signal field,​ it​ is​ usually due to​ the​ dog fence collar being too loose,​ or​ his hair is​ to​ thick to​ make good probe to​ skin contact. if​ the​ dog fence collar is​ fitting properly and your dog does not respond when he enters the​ signal field,​ this usually means that the​ correction level is​ set too low. Adjust to​ a​ higher level. to​ help adjusting your Petsafe dog collar click here: http://www.discount-pet-superstore.com/outdoor/deluxe.htm

Before proceeding to​ Phase 3,​ be sure your dog is​ happy to​ run and play in​ the​ safe area of​ the​ yard and is​ avoiding the​ training flags,​ if​ not,​ spend an​ extra day or​ two on​ Phase 2.
