Freedom Dog Fence System
Start the first phase of training using the plastic contact covers that are included with your underground fence. This is to ensure that your dog can hear the warning tone at the boundary, but there is no chance of correction. Put the electronic training collar on your dog and make sure the wall mount transmitter is turned on. The first lesson is to introduce your dog to the boundary and to help her understand to back away from the fence when the warning tone is heard.
How Dog Fences Work
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.
Dog Fence Training
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!
