Invisible Boundary Fences And Types Of Shock Training Aids
These fences have become popular in the suburbs where zoning regulations often prohibit conventional fencing. This form of containment is surely better than no fence at all, but will not keep stray animals out of your yard. Most dogs are readily trained to "respect" the boundary, although some dogs will tolerate the correction to explore the world. Once a dog breaks through to the outside, he would have to take a correction for attempting to return through the boundary line. Funny how most dogs are prepared to take the stimulation in order to escape but not willing to take the same stimulation to return home.
Most prefer standard fencing to electric, but again, electric is better than none. In any case, dogs should not be left outside alone for too many hours at a time. It frustrates them, and they will begin barking endlessly or running the perimeter of your property terrorizing people passing by.
Remote shock collars have been around for a long time. Even years ago the device was commonly used as a means of delivering punishment from a distance. These collars may still be used in an inappropriate manner if the user is unskilled in training and reinforcement techniques. Many professional dog breed trainers feel as though the companies who manufacture these collars have in fact come a long way, not only in refining the collars themselves but also in responsibly providing books and videos on correct usage and procedure.
The technique for general training is less compulsive than leash and collar training. Many people are under the impression that only an emotionally strong dog can deal with the stress of a remote collar; this is not true. Many smaller and less strong-willed breed of dogs have been trained successfully using remote shock collars
Physical: Physical correction tools are amazingly effective. They include electrically charged mats, mousetrap-type devices, and horrifically odoriferous products such as ammonia or pepper. Setups include a wide variety of inventive procedures as well. For example, place a small bit of bread on your counter top and run a few strips of double-sided carpet tape along the edge. When your dog jumps up onto the counter and gets his feet stuck he will not be quick to return to the counter-top.
Some dog breeds are less tactile and sensitive and may require a stronger correction. Electric mats offer a few levels of stimulation, and when your dog puts his feet on it, it will sting. Remember, to the dog you should not appear involved in this. T he sting came as a result of your dog's behavior, which is unrelated to you. Say nothing or if anything console the dog when it comes to you for safety. You remain safe to your dog as the counter begins to appear dangerous.
