How to train your dog to use an electric fence

It’s important to start training your dog to use an electric fence as soon as possible. The easiest way to do this is to put the fence up and then let your dog out into the yard on a leash. Walk your dog around the perimeter of the fence, making sure that he gets close enough to the fence to feel the shock. When he does, give him a command such as “no” or “stay” and praise him when he obeys. Repeat this process until he is consistently staying away from the fence.

Once your dog is trained to stay away from the fence, you can begin giving him more freedom by allowing him to roam around off-leash. However, it’s still important to keep an eye on him and make sure that he doesn’t get too close to the fence line. If he does, give him a correction with the remote control and praise him when he listens.

Electric dog fences are a great way to keep your pet safe while giving him the freedom to roam around in your yard. With a little training, your dog will quickly learn how to use the fence and stay safe within its boundaries.
