The big question, “Is my dog understanding his fence training and how do I know?”
The answer, no matter the degree of distraction, I test him with, he stays in the yard during a 3-4 day testing period. We want to throw every possible test we can think of at him so that we know for sure he respects the fence.
Most dogs have a “High Ball Drive” and like to chase something moving, some have a “High Prey Drive” and their hunting instinct sends them chasing squirrels, birds, rabbits, deer and the neighbor’s cat. Many dogs are stubborn, determined, high pain tolerant etc. The more this is true of your dog the stronger your dog’s collar must be programmed to deter the dog’s breaching his Pet Stop Fence. Pet Stop Electronic Pet Fence Receivers activate in 80 milliseconds, the fastest in the industry, insuring the collar activates before your dog can run through, next Pet Stop collars can be programmed at 6volts, 7.5volts and beyond guaranteeing that the receiver is stronger than the dog’s willingness to run through the fence.
For example if your dog is a very determined Husky, German Short Hair, German Shepherd or 160 pound Italian Mastiff chasing the neighbor’s cat, the Pet Stop Electric Collar is so fast and so strong that the dog doesn’t cross the boundary wire.
In this video Adam, Cookie and Miss TERESA show how the retractable leash training works during this testing period.
Once you are sure your family pet is 100% contained in his Pet Stop Underground Fence, continue to monitor him while out in the yard with him for several more days.
