Our Gentle Approach
GentleSteps™ is a unique, modern training method developed to help lower your pet’s stress as they learn their new electric pet fence boundaries. Once your new Pet Stop® fence is installed, the pet is introduced to its effects slowly and gradually. The first time the pet feels the correction from the system, it will be extremely weak, just a tingle. Then as the training session continues the correction level is gradually increased until the pet decides that maybe the boundary flags should be avoided.
What Will It Feel Like For My Dog?
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. The barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation are felt as just a tickle, similar to a static discharge from touching a doorknob. 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.
How Long Will The Training Take?
Just like us, each individual pet’s personality and learning curve are different and the pet fencing experts at Pet Stop of Northwestern PA will customize the training experience to what best suits your pet and provide the initial fence training to get you started. Most pets are trained to the fence in less than 2 weeks, and if your pet requires follow-up training, we will assist you. Contact us today to learn more about our GentleSteps™ training.
