Training Your DogMost systems include white flags that should be placed at the point near the boundary line where your dog will receive the warning beep. These flags, placed about 10 feet apart, will serve as visual training aids for your dog (and for you). The flags can be removed once your dog is trained.To start the training process, set aside 48 hours (most people pick a weekend), and dedicate it to training your pet. It’s important to have as little interruption as possible during this training session.On an hourly basis, attach the receiver to your dog’s collar, put a leash on your dog and take it near the boundary. Make sure your flags are up. Let the dog wander near the edge of boundary on its own, just far enough to hear the beep of its receiver collar. As soon as the beep sounds, pull sharply on the leash and bring the dog back into the safe zone. Once your dog is there, command it to sit and stay, and reward it with a treat and lavish praise. Repeat this step at different points along your boundary during each hourly session. If possible, do this training with some kind of distraction on the other side of the flags. Anything that would normally occur in your yard that might tempt the dog to cross the boundary will work.People serving as your distractions can pay attention to the dog, but they can’t call its name or give it commands, such as “Come!” or “Here!”When you’re not actively training your pet during this 48 hours, you must keep it either inside your home or confined on a leash that’s not long enough to allow it near the boundary. This rule can’t be broken. If it gets loose even once, you’ll have to start over.Toward the end of your 48 hours, test your dog to see if it’s learning: Allow it to get near the point where you would normally pull it back. See if it starts to turn around on its own. If it does, you know it’s starting to learn the routine. Don’t let this be an indication for you to stop training. Continue for the entire 48-hour period. The dog must be pulled out of the boundary at least 50 times for the training to sink in.Good to KnowYou should change the battery in your dog’s collar receiver every three to six months. If you have a dog that likes to test the boundaries often, be aware that the battery may run out sooner.

Help keeps your pup safe and contained while still giving them a wide-open space to play with Petco’s selection of invisible, wireless and electric dog fences. While walking your pup around the block or taking them to a dog park can ensure that they get some fresh air, letting them out in the backyard is often more convenient for a quick fetch. If your home does not have a gated barrier, or if it is too short to keep your canine contained, then an invisible fence is an ideal solution to make sure they stay secure. Invisible fences for dogs usually contain a transponder that sends an audio alert, static warning or a combination of both to your pet’s receiver collar when they get too close to the underground wire border you’ve established. Many invisible fences use a buried wire, but there are also wireless dog fences that detect when your pup is getting out of range. Additionally, many kits come with training flags so your pup has a visual cue of their area’s safe zone. Wireless dog fences have a few advantages over their chain-linked or wooden counterparts. Many electric dog fences require few tools to install and can be set up in an afternoon. Moreover, unlike a traditional gate, the layout of many invisible dog fences isn’t as restricted by the topography of your yard. Additionally, using an invisible fence does not obstruct your view and can be ideal for creating a space for your canine in larger lots as they can form a circular barrier of nearly up to an acre. Furthermore, with wireless dog fences, you can increase the range of your area by linking additional transponders. Shop Petco’s wide selection of invisible dog fences to keep your hound happily hanging out in your yard.

How Electronic Fences WorkElectronic pet containment is a dog-training system that that uses a small electric charge to keep your dog in the yard. A transmitter plugs into a standard outlet and emits a signal that travels along underground wires. A hidden boundary is created, and a receiver on your dog’s collar sounds a warning tone when the dog wanders near the boundary.If the dog doesn’t back away, the receiver will respond with a mild but definite static correction. It’s harmless but just uncomfortable enough to make the dog learn the new customized boundaries and remain in the safe part of the yard.No one can see the boundaries you’ve set up, but your dog knows they’re there. You can use these systems to create boundaries your dog can’t jump over or dig under. They’re sometimes used to keep dogs out of flower beds and swimming pools as well confining them to their own yards.The charge your dog will feel from the receiver on its collar is slightly stronger than that the shock you get from static electricity. It’s designed to get your dog’s attention, not to hurt it. And after it’s trained, your dog will respond to the audio signal and rarely experience the shock.
