Question  Will the correction from the receiver collar be enough to keep my dog in the yard?

Answer:  Absolutely not.

One of the biggest misconceptions about underground fencing is that the correction alone will keep your pet within its boundaries. While the beep and correction emitted by the receiver are a vital part of your pets containment, the most important component is the TRAINING! The correction is simply there to act as an attention getter, a reminder of the location of the pets boundaries. When your pet hears the beep or receives the correction, they will be reminded of there boundaries within your yard. Also, the beep and correction make them aware that they are at the edge of the play zone.
Question:  Does the correction cause pain or harm to my dog?

Answer:   Absolutely not.

The correction is safe, painless and humane. While the correction is unpleasant, it is harmless to your pet. Electronic training devices require interaction and training from the owner to achieve desired results. Most fences come with comprehensive video and training manuals. These tools were developed with veterinarians and animal behaviorists to ensure safety and peace of mind for you and your pet.
Question:  How old does a dog have to be before starting training?

Answer:  This is somewhat breed dependent, but most breeds should be at least 6 months of age.

Question:  What is the best way to take the dog out of the boundary?

Create what is called an "hidden gate" and take the dog out only through this gate. Place a long leash on the dog. Turn the system off. Remove the dog's collar. Put the dog on the "sit" and "stay" command near the area that will become the "gate". Owner walks out of yard and asks dog to "come".
Question:  If a dog is running through the system at only one spot in the yard, how is this corrected?

Set him up at this location. For example, have him on a long leash and then have someone else walk by that spot or walk their dog by that spot. When the dog attempts to leave - pull him back with the leash and then redirect him to the "sit" and "stay" commands.
Question:  What is the dummy collar effect?

This is a procedure where the collar is eliminated as a factor in learning. In other words, the dog wears the collar without it being activated for 3-5 days. This way the dog does not learn that the collar causes the correction, but rather getting to close to the yard boundary. This prohibits the dog from being afraid of the collar.
Question:  How long should an owner take to create the dummy collar effect?

On the average, it will take at least 3 days and as long as 7 days.
Question:  The first time the dog receives the correction should he be on or off a leash?

On the leash. This way the owner can easily redirect the dog to the appropriate behavior.
Question:  How long should the owner leave the flags up?

The flags should remain for at least 2 weeks, but in some cases as long as 30 days.
Question:  Can I use this system to train my dog to stop jumping over or digging under wood or metal fences?

Yes. In fact approximately 40% of those buying a Radio Fence already own an existing physical fence.
