Some people worry about using an underground dog fence because they fear that it isn't fair to the dog since he or she can't see the fence to know their limits. The goal here is to use positive reinforcement to train the dog to stay inside the boundaries. Below is an example of how this can be done.
There are orange cones or flags that come with the kit for the underground fence. Set the cones along the inside of the boundary of the yard. Find a safe area to start training your dog. This should not be near a roadway, but maybe near the edge of the side of the yard. Walk your dog over to the edge near a cone. Encourage your dog to stop at the cone. Reward him or her when he or she stops before the cone. Do this several times. This is the beginning of your dog understanding the boundaries of the yard.
When you invest in your underground dog fence, you and your dog will get custom training that fits the needs of your pet. This will give your pet a chance to become familiar with the boundaries through various senses so that the fence itself is the last stop for the pet and more of a precautionary measure. Our goal is to help you keep your pet safe while still keeping your pet happy. Once the fence is installed, and your dog understands the boundaries, you will find that you both have more freedom than you previously did.
