Training Your Dog:Our Gentle and Fun Boundary Training program was written based on our many years of experience training thousands of dogs to electronic pet fences. Our program has been reviewed and approved by several of the area’s top dog trainers. It is the most effective training program we have seen.The single most important thing with anyelectronic pet fencing system is the training. We will use our experience to customize the training for the needs of your particular dog.
Our training program is very simple, requires about 7 to 9 days, and takes only two 10-minute sessions per day. We even conduct the first session with you! No pet fencing system available is “plug-n-play”. Even the smartest dog in the world is not born knowing what to do or which direction to turn when he hears a beep. This must be taught. The training is easy and can be done by any member of the family. It is designed to be extremely effective and minimizes the number of corrections needed before you give your dog complete freedom and safety in his yard.Your dog must be kept on a leash when outside for 7 to 9 days. Your Derby’s Pet Fence representative will conduct the first training session with you and your dog. We will explain the program and give our training guide material. The training consists of simple 10-minute exercises that must be done twice a day. You will be given instructions on how to complete the balance of the program. We will be available by phone 7-days a week and will return as many times as necessary, at no charge, if follow-up sessions are required. People are surprised to learn that most dogs only require 3 to 7 corrections during the training period before they will be considered fully trained. It literally may be several years (if ever) before they get another correction. I’ve even seen a few dogs that only received ONE correction during the training period (and may never get another one). This all depends on you conducting the training as described in our unique guidelines. So many things set us apart from the competition – our commitment to your dog’s training is one of the most important!
