West Michigan Hidden Fence | Training
Completely trusting your dog with the boundaries will take place over the course of about 4 weeks. Don’t worry, the actual training is a small part of this time the rest is spent closely monitoring your dog.
You will want to set time aside for two practice sessions per day that are 10-15 minutes each because both you and your dog will appreciate short, fun lessons that make the training more effective. Use a calendar so you can keep track of the training process. Your dog’s behavior will tell you when it is time to proceed to the next level. Dogs learn at different rates, so don’t be surprised if your dog catches on faster or takes a little longer.
- In lesson one, there are six sessions to teach the retreat pattern.
- In lesson two, there is one session about correction and lesson number three is how to deal with distractions.
- In lesson four your dog is ready to take off the lead with some supervision and,
- In lesson five will move on to being off lead unsupervised.
When wrapping up the training you will remove the flags gradually until they are gone. That’s the schedule and most importantly, every day, review the previous day’s activities to see if your dog is learning on schedule. Boundary work should take place only in your yard. Take your dog around to the boundaries of your entire yard talking and pointing out the area you want to be observed. Do not let your dog go beyond the boundary.
When you have completed a session, always end it on a high note with more play and praise. When a session is complete bring your dog indoors to remove the electronic collar.
That’s it, it’s that simple. We will provide initial training and, walk you through this very simple process and if you need it, help is only a phone call away.
If you are training more than one dog, train each dog in separate training sessions.
