Training Your Pet(s)

We LOVE Training


Good pet training is absolutely critical. That’s why we employ the most advanced, up-to-date behavioral methods and apply them to individual pets with very different personalities. 

The initial training phase will be carried out with you and your pet - in a very pet-friendly way. Your pet will be fitted with a receiver, and then we will outline the principles and methods involved in reinforcing their initial training.

We will guide you and your pet(s) through various training techniques designed to teach them the new boundaries of their electric fence.


Based on their reaction to this training we will then decide when it is best to initiate their first correction. When handled properly pets take to the training easily, often experiencing the correction only once or twice and quickly learning to respond to the warning tone.

Walking your pet(s) through the training with Gentle Steps™


Keeping pets safe in the yard and away from danger doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful for you or your pet(s).  All pet fence systems rely on a special training collar that emits a brief and harmless static correction as a deterrent to leaving the safety of the yard or boundaries.

To reduce the stress associated with introducing your pet to the new fence, Pet Stop has introduced the new GentleSteps dog training method.  

GentleSteps training is the perfect marriage of product technology and the latest soft touch training method to quickly and easily familiarize your pet(s) to their fencing system.

GentleSteps training is the modern and incremental training program that reduces problems more commonly associated with traditional containment training by using barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation, just a tickle, during the critical training phase.

The new Pet Stop system has literally thousands of personalized adjustments, including the ultra-low levels needed for GentleSteps training. Whether it’s interference problems, tricky installations like small lots or even lots of dogs, our exclusive programming capability enables us to install the fence to teach your pet(s) to respect their new boundaries quickly and most important – happily.

Reinforcement Training


We aren’t limited by our equipment’s flexibility and we don’t think you should settle either.

After your pet is safe and comfortable behind her fence, higher levels can be used to help even the most committed escape artist to resist the many natural distractions that might jeopardize their safety such as squirrels, bikes or speeding cars.

After you and your dog receive training, you will begin the phase of reinforcement training - a self-initiated program following the instructions we provide. Depending on the package you purchased, all training may be included or additional training is available for an added fee.

The program is organized into short daily sessions lasting for about two weeks. While most pets pick things up quickly and learn to respect the boundary, others may require additional conditioning. We are ready to assist you if you’re having difficulty with any part of the training program. That's what we are trained to do - be ready to help or lend advice when necessary.

After the training program is successfully accomplished, your pet will be free to roam and play within the safety of their new Pet Stop electronic fence system, enjoying a new kind of freedom they’ve never had before.
