Training Your Dog using a PetSafe Electric Dog
fence - Week 2
3
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.
4
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.
5
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!
6
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.
7
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.
8
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.
