System Training Tips
containment system is a tool you can use to teach
your dog its new boundaries. Please remember that
all dogs learn to respond to a containment system
rates depending on age, breed, quality of the training, and the intervals of
and between training. Remember too that dogs do not speak English and they must
have simple short phrases or words given while showing what is expected of them.
As with all dog training, consistency is the key to success. We carry an extensive
line of pet containment systems tailored to most

to run around the yard while the transmitter is unplugged
from the wall, so your dog can get used to wearing the
- Train 3 times a day in sessions of 10 to 15 minutes
for good results.
Make sure that the flags are positioned where the tone begins (not directly on
the boundary wire).

regular collar attached to a leash.
- Coax your dog towards the line like you're taking

doing this, make it appear that it's a game for your

- After your dog has mastered running from the tone,
it is time to give your dog a correction. Keep the
leash on your dog and run towards the boundary line,
making sure that you and your dog go into the field
far and long enough to receive a correction.
- When the correction is felt by your dog run back
to the middle of the yard where your dog knows that
it is safe. You will only get one shot at this each
session. Watch for signs of your dog lunging forward
to try to break through the boundary system. If your
dog does this, repeat the above steps until your dog
runs back to the safe area on its own.
After your dog masters Step 7, allow the dog to run
in the yard under supervision for about an hour.
Then leave your dog in the yard while going inside and
through a window periodically
The best tip is not to rush your dog,
even if your dog is the smartest in
