If I have an aggressive dog, can I use an underground fence?
No. We will not sell or install an electric pet fence if your dog is aggressive, unless our product is going to be supporting a pre-existing wooden or chain-link fence. It isn’t recommended to use corrections on aggressive dogs — instead, we suggest you contact your vet for alternative training methods.
How long will it take to train my dog to the new fence?
Usually, most dogs are trained to the fence in about 6 days – our gentle training methods drastically reduces the amount of time needed to train, and is more humane than the techniques used by competitors.
Are there any size or age limitations that may affect my pet being trained?
There are no minimum or maximum size limits, but it’s recommended that your pet be at least 8 weeks old in order to be trained.
Will the corrections harm my pet?
No, the corrections used are harmless, safe, and humane. The shock used is just enough to get their attention. The energy used in correction is less than than the energy produced in a static shock from carpeting
When will the batteries need replacing and how can I tell?
With one of our Rechargeable collars, it only needs to be charged once a month, instead of spending $15-$20 every 3 months on a new battery Iike with our competitors. In our battery operated collars battery life depends on how often your dog tests the boundary, but in most cases the battery will last from 3 to 6 months. When the battery is running low, an indicator light will flash on the receiver, giving you a chance to replace the battery before it expires.
