Training Your Dog using a PetSafe Electric Dog fence: ...
After all, an invisible dog fence is nothing more than a training tool to help your dog understand where his boundaries lie.
I’ve just recently installed your electric fence and our dog is seriously timid anywhere near the fence. She was adopted about 6 months ago and her prior owners had an electronic fence. As soon as she saw those flags, she knew what they were. I did the stage 1 test/training (no shock, just vibration and beep) it went off one time and she just isn’t the same dog. She doesn’t want to go outside and when she does she literally stays as close to the house as possible. Not going anywhere in the yard. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. FYI- we installed the efence, b/c she has escaped from the regular fence many times (after multiple times reinforcing it too). Now she doesn’t run off which is just great, but I want our happy dog back. Tell me this will pass?
It is not as hard as you would think. Dogs, have a much stronger desire to avoid the correction than to get the reward of chasing a critter. The important part is to do a bit of training so dogs learn the lesson that the boundary fence rules apply no matter how excited they get and that they only way to escape correction is to turn and retreat.

Our anti dog barking collars are the only collars that let you choose to allow the more rapid alarm and intruder barking. We invented the progressive stimulus bark collar that starts at a low, painless level and gradually increases as barking persists. We also make painless, sound only collars that are effective in stopping dog barking with harmless tones, not shock stimulus. Our Bark Control Collars are lightweight, waterproof and effortless to use. They are simply the most humane and effective anti dog bark collars made.
Our new Bluefang smart phone controlled collars include on-board fitness tracking. You can determine your dog's current fitness level compared to ideal with the BMI CALCULATOR included in the Bluefang app. Then use the collar's Activity Monitor to track your dog's actual energy burn by hour, day, week, month or year. Your pooch will be in "Top Dog" shape in no time!Here's the thing: Once you train your dog to understand how a dog fence works, it becomes an incredibly reliable way to keep your dog safe. When I was a pro installer, I actually offered a containment guarantee — if I couldn't train a dog to stay in its yard using a dog fence, then I would refund the customer's money in full. I didn't offer a containment guarantee just because I'm a nice guy (though my wife would say I am); I offered the guarantee because I knew that I could train pretty much any dog to respect an invisible dog fence using my low-stress training techniques.
