Training Recommendations

Following several guidelines will make sure that your dog training is successful. In the beginning, you can take out the battery to let your dog get used to wearing the collar first. Use a leash to train your dog until he knows where the border is. Two or 3 times a day for 10 to 15 minutes each time should do the trick. As every dog is unique, be sure to adjust this time if you need to. Decrease the training time should you see signs of distress. These include nervous shaking, the tail between the legs, or refusing to go outside. Vets instruct that you not keep the collar on for more than 12 consecutive hours.

Considerations

When looking at Petsafe wireless electric dog fence review, be sure to take several things into consideration. The first is your property size and type. The second is your lifestyle and the type of pets you have. The third is the cost of each system and the fourth is how many dogs that you have. If you have more than one dog, be sure to select a system that will handle all of your dogs.
