Dog Fencing System Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How old or big must my pet be to be trained to the fence?

A: First, it's important that your pet already be well adjusted to the home environment before training starts. There are no size limitations, but we do recommend your pet be at least 12 weeks of age.

Q: How long is it going to take to train my dog to the fence?

A: It usually takes about four days to train your dog. This is when you get the training package that offers complete training. We come out 3 - 4 days in a row and train your dog. You follow a few rules and most dogs are running free in 4 days.  Our gentle, humane method of training drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to train. If you decide to complete the training yourself, it will take up to 2 weeks.

Q: Will my pet be hurt by the correction?

A: The correction used is harmless and humane, just enough to startle your pet, nothing more. The amount of energy used in a correction is no more than that produced by a carpet's static shock.

Q:  Can I use an underground dog fence for my aggressive dog?


A: No. If you have an aggressive dog, we will not sell or install an electric dog fence unless it is to be used in conjunction with a preexisting wooden or chain-link fence. We do not recommend the use of corrections with aggressive dogs and instead suggest you seek your veterinarian's advice for alternative methods.

Q: When do the batteries need to be replaced in the receiver?

A: Usually the battery will last from 6 to 9 months, but this will vary depending on how often your dog tests the boundaries. When the batteries are low, an indicator light will flash so you'll be able to change the batteries before they expire.
