Electric Dog Fence Training
The Nine Pillars of Training gradually exposes your dog to more and more real life distractions to ensure that your dog will always stay within the underground containment fence. Your dog will learn that the area beyond the flags is a total NO-GO zone no matter what is on the other side of the flags.
Once electric collar training is complete, your dog will have passed the Contain My Dog Nine Pillars of Training and is ready for his freedom safely within your yard.
The most important feature of the Contain My Dog Electronic Dog Containment System is the type of electronic dog collar training that your dog receives. The training is what ensures that your dog stays in your yard instead of running out to end up lost or hurt.
Successful electronic dog collar training will also avoid ‘Run-Through’ Syndrome. ‘Run-Through’ Syndrome is a learned behavior whereby a dog has mastered the ability to run through an electronic boundary swiftly to get what they want on the “other side.”Dogs learn this behavior because they are not thoroughly trained and tested with the electronic collar before being allowed to run freely in their yard.
After a dog learns to run through their underground fence boundaries, it is very difficult, if not impossible, for many dogs to ‘unlearn.’
Once a dog accepts or handles a shock, and receives the reward of what they wanted on the other side of the electronic fence, they learn that their reward far outweighs the momentary collar shock of a correction. The only way to deal with ‘Run-Through’ syndrome is to prevent it
by properly training the dog with the collar so they learn to stay safely within their electronic fence boundaries.
