Our Gentle Approach
GentleSteps™ is the safest, most effective training method for pet fences.
Pet Stop of Western Mass will walk your dog through training with GentleSteps™
Rather than attempt to contain your dog with painful zaps, we use a unique gentle approach that has produced outstanding results.
What Will It Feel Like For My Dog?
GentleSteps™ utilizes ultra-low levels of training collar stimulation during the critical initial training phase that leaves your dog happy and secure in the safety of your yard. The barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation are felt as just a tickle, similar to a static discharge from touching a doorknob. This unique soft-touch training method allows Pet Stop® clients to focus on more positive experiences such as freedom in the yard to run and play.
How Long Will The Training Take?
Just like us, each individual pet’s personality and learning curve are different and the pet fencing experts at Pet Stop of Western Mass will customize the training experience to what best suits your pet and provide the initial fence training to get you started. Most pets are trained to the fence in less than 2 weeks, and if your pet requires follow-up training, we will assist you. Contact us today to learn more about our GentleSteps™ training.
Our training method is so effective that owners need to spend only 5-10 minutes, three times a day, during the five-day training phase, to teach pets their new boundaries. Dogs love the training because it is painless, fun, upbeat, and comes with lots of tasty treats!
We’re proud to carry Pet Stop® brand electronic pet fencing products! When it comes to the health and happiness of your beloved pet, we don’t outsource – all of our underground pet fence systems are made right here in America and are constructed of quality, durable materials.
Not only are our products guaranteed to last a long time, but they’re also safe and humane, providing effective dog containment without the use of painful zaps.
