Expert Training: 4-Step Effective Pet Management.
Our 4-step training program is a systematic, customizable, and gentle approach. Our training methods, practiced by our trusted team of professionals, ensure the best possible results with cats and dogs of any breed, age, or size.
We get to know each pet by observing their natural behaviors and interacting closely with them in order to learn key character traits and temperament aspects that will contribute to the success of their learning process.
Every pet has a favorite distraction – a squirrel, a favorite toy – that they will disregard the rules for. We identify this stimulus and adjust the pet's Computer Collar® to find the perfect setting that gently and safely encourages them to disregard the stimulus – so your pet chooses the applicable setting.
Once we have found the perfect Computer Collar® setting, we apply appropriate training techniques suited to the pet’s learning process and use boundary indications to help the pet learn the safe area. These approaches teach pets the locations of boundaries and the behaviors expected of them.
As soon as the pet indicates that it recognizes designated boundaries and understands expected behaviors, we remove all boundary indicators, and affirm that training was successful. We then reinforce the pets new knowledge of boundaries and good behaviors with positive reinforcement.
The key, as I see it, is the combination of training with technology. You must have that right combination for a system such as this to work…. I am convinced that Invisible Fence® Brand is superior to anything else on the market. The professionalism of the Dealers, certified training protocols and superior technology give the owners the peace of mind and their pets effective and safe containment.

Perfect Start™: A gentle beginning to a lifetime of happiness.
What will training be like?
We’re ready for your star pupil! We remove any confusion and anxiety in your pet right from the start. We gently introduce ourselves to your pets and begin our training inside where they’re most comfortable. Our Computer Collars® have over 1,000 customized settings and we start with just a light tickle so soft your little one (and even you) would barely feel it.
From there, we see how your pet responds and continue to cater our training specifically to their temperament and progress. Owners are always surprised at how quickly and happily their pets learn! Many families even enjoy being an active part of the training for a closer bond with their pet.
Will the collar or training hurt my pet?
No. The audible tone and customized static correction from your pet’s Computer Collar® may startle your pet, but it will not hurt him/her. It’s similar to the sensation you feel when you run your hand across a TV screen or when you walk across a carpet and touch a metal doorknob. The sensation momentarily surprises you and gets your attention. Your pet’s Computer Collar® serves as a safety net should your pet forget or try to test their limits, but with proper training your pet will stay and play happily in their yard. Our certified training programs have been developed with animal behaviorists, trainers and veterinarians to give your pet effective, stress-free lessons that helps pets quickly, easily, and safely understand their boundaries around your home.
How is it superior to other methods?
Drawing from today’s most advanced and yet gentlest training techniques, our success rate comes from:
- Customizing lessons to your pets breed, age, size, and temperament
- Focusing on trust-building, which is critical for highly sensitive dogs
- Integrating self-discovery of boundaries for a more natural and effective level of training
- Working with all ages including puppies and kitties as young as 8 weeks (the only brand that can do so)
- Having flexibility to change techniques as your pet learns, making the experience easier and happier
Does it work with cats, too?
Yes! In fact, cats often learn faster than dogs.
How convenient is it?
Owners love how we go out of our way to accommodate your schedule. Training sessions are short (often 15 minutes or less) but so effective that in 3 to 4 weeks, your pets are ready for their new freedom.
