Exclusive GentleSteps™ Dog Fence Training


Dog fence training is not what it used to be - at least when you use the Low-Stress GentleSteps method, exclusive to Pet Stop dealers with Pet Stop's revolutionary smart pet fencing systems.

Pet Stop® Walks Customers Through Pet Fence Training With GentleSteps™


Pet Stop, the fastest growing professionally installed dog fence brand has introduced GentleSteps, the perfect marriage of soft touch training methods and the latest product technology that quickly and easily introduces pets to their new pet fencing system.


Morgantown, PA  [April 23, 2008] -- Keeping pets safe in the yard and away from danger doesn't have to be difficult or stressful. All dog fence systems rely on a special training collar that emits a brief and harmless static correction as a deterrent to leaving the safety of the yard which may be stressful for some animals, particularly shy and sensitive pets. To reduce the stress associated with introducing pets to their new fence, Pet Stop Pet Fence Systems has introduced the new GentleSteps training method.


GentleSteps training is the perfect marriage of product technology and the latest soft touch training method to quickly and easily familiarize dogs with their new fencing system. GentleSteps training is the modern and incremental training program that reduces problems more commonly associated with traditional containment training by using barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation, just a tickle, during the critical training phase.

I'm really surprised it took the industry this long to adopt a standardized training protocol that ensures both the pet's safety and happiness 


While it is undeniable that many individuals have contributed to the development of this unique training protocol, the behavior expert most credited with this revolutionary low stress training technique is professional trainer and Pet Stop dealer Rich Weinssen of Hidden Fence of New Jersey. As a founding member of the International Association of Canine Professionals, Mr. Weinssen believes in a humane approach to pet training and saw the opportunity to develop a low stress approach by using a slow and gradual increase in correction, supplemented by frequent training sessions.


The new Pet Stop system has literally thousands of personalized adjustments, including the ultra-low levels needed for GentleSteps training. This exclusive programming capability enables Pet Stop professionals to teach pets their new boundaries quickly and most important - happily.


"I'm really surprised it took the industry this long to adopt a standardized training protocol that ensures both the pet's safety and happiness," Said Blaine Bacher, V.P. of Sales for Pet Stop. "GentleSteps training makes the process easier and more fun for the family too." After pets are safe and comfortable behind their new fence, higher levels can be used to help even the most committed escape artist to resist the many natural distractions that might jeopardize their safety such as squirrels, bikes or speeding cars.

Basic Pet Fence Training for Less Timid Pets


If your pet isn't the timid type, or has been contained by an electronic dog fence before, the Basic Dog Fence training procedure may be right for you.


A modified version of the same System Training methods we've used successfully for more than 20 years, our Basic System Training process helps to focus your pets on the audible warning tone before exposure to the collar correction. Though this method can sometimes be more stressful when used with less confident pets, it works well for "experienced" dogs, or those with a more audacious personality.
