Take the electrical tape off post and lead dog to flags, so the dog will see the flags, hear tone, and feel electronic pulse. It is important that you remain calm and confident while the dog is recalled to the safe part of the yard. The dog should yelp to let you know the pulse is strong enough to get his attention. If he does not give a verbal yelp, call Mike, Adam or Matthew right away at 404-5366-770.
* When doing the “test,” make sure the dog is on a static or retractable leash so he does not bolt out of the yard while doing the test. Make sure he is running in the correct direction before letting the leash go & that he runs home. After your dog receives the pulse from his fence, get him and walk him for about ten minutes until he is relaxed and comfortable again.
* Determine the condition/reaction of the dog as to determine whether a second approach is wise (no more than two impulses per session). Be sure to follow this same procedure at any escape route for your dog. Within 7-10 days you must be convinced that your dog knows his boundaries and will stay in the yard no matter the level of distraction. If you are the least bit unsure, call Mike at (404)536-6770.
* If dog will not go to fence, distract dog with treat, family member, toy or ball…do not force or call him over fence.
- At this point, dog must experience impulse of collar (while on leash) and be recalled to the center of the yard (the “safe place”), and praised with verbal praise and petting.
- If the training session on day four is not successful for any reason, please call Mike 404-536-6770.
