Dixie - Beagle
It has been a pleasure to work with your company. Our pet took extra training and you were very patient throughout the entire process. We highly recommend your company. Your “follow-up” after the sale is wonderful. Enjoyed working with all your personnel.



Ted and Meg Bryant
Max – Australian Shepherd Mix
We have been extremely satisfied with all aspects from the estimate all the way through to follow up service! Our dog is much happier too!! Since he can go outside whenever he wants. It has mellowed him out a bit too. He was actually shrunk his own space a bit smaller with fence area and doesn’t charge after squirrels anymore.

Toby – Miniature Pinscher

I really liked being able to get an estimate over the phone – everyone else I called wanted to make an appointment with me in order to give me a quote and I did not have all that time! The trainer worked with our schedule! A positive experience! Cannot even think of anything negative to say!

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.
