During the training process it is VERY IMPORTANT that you don't let your dog run off lead while in the yard with or without wearing your dog fence collar. If you do, it will confuse him and you'll have to re-start the entire electric dog fence training process. It would be best to keep him on a leash in the first week. But, never walk your canine friend over the boundary line on a leash. This may confuse him at the start. Eventually, you will be able to adopt him with you over the boundary for a leash - this is called "Doorway Training" and we'll talk about this later. But in the meantime, if he needs to leave the particular yard, place him in the automobile, or carry him well over to the other side of the signal field. Don't forget to REMOVE HIS ELECTRIC DOG FENCE COLLAR before taking him in the yard by either of these not one but two options, or he will get adjusted as he leaves.

To allow your dog to become accustomed to the collar probes hlzsj801-3 on his neck remove the collar after each workout during the first week. After which, remove the dog fence collar each night for the next three weeks. Eventually he is able to wear the dog fence collar on a regular basis, but it may take some time for him to create a tolerance to the probes on your receiver. Clean both the probes as well as the dogs neck every evening for the 1st 30 days.

The training flags are there for two reasons. First, to give your dog a visual boundary and secondly to assist you with the training process. The flags ought to be installed about 12" to your yard side within the dog fence wire in the ground. All of the flags will remain within the yard for about 30 days.

Remember the PetSafe electric dog fence training ought to be fun, and not stressful at almost all. If other family members are assisting in the training sessions, it is vitally important that everyone follows the identical technique. Make each session short along with upbeat (5 to10 minutes max). Many dogs have extremely short attention spans and training is often very tiring for them, so don't get discouraged if he doesn't "get it" initially - they will eventually learn.

Days 1 to 3 Place a leash on the dog using a flat collar or maybe a slip collar, Never place the leash directly around the receiver collar. Prior to placing doggy fence collar on your dog, turn doggie fence collar to the lowest electricity setting. Your dog needs to first be taught the way to respond to the flags. Walk with your dog within the containment area on the yard and praise and play using him.

Now, proceed towards the instruction flags. As your dog head moves the flags, give a quick horizontal or downward "jerk and release" correction to the leash. Bring your dog back about 10 feet in to the containment area and praise him. The "jerk and release" is the only negative reinforcement your dog demands. There is no verbal correction needed. The PetSafe dog collar will be giving your pet a warning tone before the very light correction he is getting at the flags. You should tailor the corrections towards your pets' personality, temperament, size and reproduce.

Each training session should only last about 5 to 10 minutes. Enter the containment area at various places and concentrate on areas that the family typically could leave the yard ( ie: driveway, sidewalk or path your dog uses now to leave). Soon you should see your pet turn to avoid the flags. This shows that he could be learning. Make sure you play in your dog in the containment area to show him time spent in the yard is a pleasant experience. This will prevent the dog from becoming timid or afraid going into the yard.

Remember, keep him on the leash during this first week, even to visit outside to the bathroom. Some dogs will "pick up" the training faster than others. Before proceeding to Cycle 2, be sure that your dog is happy to run and play in the backyard, generally avoiding the flags. If not, spend an extra day or a couple of flag training. Training is simply following the play blocks - you cannot proceed to Period 2 without first completing the banner training.
