Training your pet

Phase 1

We will start out by simply teaching your pet the boundaries. You will be border training your pet to the flags and the tone. The Dog Guard collar will be deactivated by putting tape of the posts so that no correction can be delivered. We will manually give you pet a correction by jerking them back away from the line every time they get too close to the flags. As soon as your pet gets turned around away from the flags we being to praise them while running away from the flags (at least 10 feet). Use short jerking motions to get your pet to turn away from the flags. Your pet should start hearing the tone about 1 to 2 feet before the flags thatís when we need to get your pet away from the flags. Your pet should start hearing the tone about 1 to 2 feet before the flags thatís when we need to get your pet away from the flags. Do not let you pet walk in and out of the flagged area without getting a correction. Anytime your pet willingly goes into the flagged area, let him, then give him the short jerking corrections while running back toward the safe area. You may not be bale to hear the tone so use the flags as your cue to give the correction. This phase of training should last for 2 to 4 days. By that time your pet should be somewhat avoiding the flagged areas and backing out when he hears the tone. This indicates the training is taking effect. Good Job!

Phase 2

Now its time for your pet to experience the correction from the collar while still on the leash. We will take the tape off the posts on the collar and place the collar on the pet. The training will be similar to what you have already been doing except we do not need to jerk them back as a correction. The Dog Guard collar will now do it for us. It is important that your pet experience at least 3 to 5 corrections from the collar (while still on the leash) in the next 3 to 5 days. This will ensure your pet knows what to do when they receive the correction. Your pet should immediately come back away from the flags when they get a correction, if they donít you are there to get them back with the leash. If you pet becomes hesitant to go back outside after the correction, back off the training but still take him out in the safe area. It is important to do whatever is necessary to get your pet outside using and playing in their safe area. Remember to always incorporate praise and play into the training sessions. At this point, your pet should be avoiding the flagged areas, but still willing to run and play in the safe area of the yard.
