low-stress hidden dog fence training method

Pet-Friendly, Low-Stress Dog Fence Training

pets are happier with GentleSteps™ low-stress dog fence training

Only Pet Stop® Pet Fence Systems have GentleSteps™ — the perfect marriage of product technology and the latest light-touch training

methods to quickly and easily familiarize your dog with his/her new fencing system.

GentleSteps utilizes ultra-low levels of training collar stimulation during the critical initial training phase that leaves your dog happy and secure in the safety of your yard. A solution born from experience members of our very own Pet Stop® network of pet fencing professionals theorized that using barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation, just a tickle, during the training phase would speed the training process by reducing stress levels commonly associated with traditional containment training. This unique soft-touch training method allows Pet Stop clients to focus on more positive experiences such as freedom in the yard to run and play.

Avoiding negative association is far easier with the low fence levels introduced with GentleSteps. GentleSteps™ for a lighter touch. Now the gentler training method needed an equally unique training tool, and the Pet Stop® design team was ready for the challenge. By utilizing the most advanced pet fencing system available, you and your Pet Stop Professional will determine the right amount of soft touch required to have your dog learning her new boundaries quickly, and most important, happily.

After your dog is comfortable with her new fence, you can choose from higher levels to help your dog resist the many natural distractions that might tempt her to leave the safety of the yard, such as squirrels, bikes and running children.
