With hazards like lakes, woodlands, predators, busy roads, and the potent lures of deer, birds, and squirrels, keeping your dog safe in the Northwoods while providing the freedom they need to stay happy and healthy can be a real challenge.
Whether you want to protect your dog at the lakehouse or worry about your dog crossing the street, we’ll evaluate your project and help you find the right fencing solution.
First, a transmitter is installed in a convenient location, such as the garage or basement.
Then, the wire loop is placed underground. The transmitter sends a harmless radio signal through the wire, which is picked up by the small receiver on the dog’s collar.
When the dog nears the wire, the receiver in the pet’s collar picks up the signal and gives off the owner’s choice of an audible warning or mild correction.
The boundary is marked off with flags, creating a visible boundary line for the pet. For two weeks, the dog owner should spend fifteen minutes, twice daily, exercising the dog around the flag boundary.
If the dog moves toward the flags, he should be told “No!” The dog should then be moved away from the flags and given lots of praise. By using this technique, the dog will quickly learn where the boundary is located.
Later, once the dog becomes familiar with the visible boundary, the flags can be removed. Remember, praise and repetition are the keys to success!
Our exclusive technology includes a reminder zone within 3–6 feet of the boundary. When dogs enter this secondary zone, they are sent an audible reminder to turn around.
