Our Gentle Approach
Hope’s Dog Fencing utilizes the revolutionary pet fence training method, GentleSteps™. Designed to be safe and humane, GentleSteps™ provides us with a safe, easy way to train your pet to their new boundaries without traumatizing them with painful shocks – in fact, this training method can even be fun for your pet (especially when tasty treats are involved)! Since this fence training method is low-stress and focuses on positive reinforcement, pets learn their new fence boundaries faster and most are completely trained to the fence in just a couple of weeks!
What Will It Feel Like For My Dog?
GentleSteps™ utilizes ultra-low levels of training collar stimulation during the critical initial training phase that leaves your dog happy and secure in the safety of your yard. The barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation are felt as just a tickle, similar to a static discharge from touching a doorknob. This unique soft-touch training method allows Pet Stop® clients to focus on more positive experiences such as freedom in the yard to run and play.
How Long Will The Training Take?
Just like us, each individual pet’s personality and learning curve are different and the pet fencing experts at Hope’s Dog Fencing will customize the training experience to what best suits your pet and provide the initial fence training to get you started. Most pets are trained to the fence in less than 2 weeks, and if your pet requires follow-up training, we will assist you. Contact us today to learn more about our GentleSteps™ training.
