Gentle Steps Training
Pet Stop® will walk your dog through the training with GentleSteps™
Keeping pets safe in the yard and away from danger doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful for you or your dog. All dog 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. This may be stressful for some animals, particularly if you have a shy or sensitive pet. To reduce the stress associated with introducing your pet to her new fence, Pet Stop has introduced the new GentleSteps™ training method.
GentleSteps™ training is the perfect marriage of product technology and the latest soft touch training method to quickly and easily familiarize your dog to her 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.
While it is undeniable that many individuals have contributed to the development of this unique training protocol, the behavior expert most credited with this revolutionary low stress training technique is professional trainer and Pet Stop dealer, Rich Weinssen of Hidden Fence of New Jersey. As a founding member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, Mr. Weinssen believes in a humane approach to pet training and saw the opportunity to develop a low stress approach by using a slow and gradual increase in correction, supplemented by frequent training sessions.
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 Pet Stop professionals to install the fence to teach your pet to respect their new boundaries quickly, and most important, happily. We aren’t limited, because of our equipment’s flexibility. We don’t think you should settle for anything less 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.
