Pet system training: How it works
Have you been standing on your porch or driving around your neighborhood and calling out for your family dog more frequently in the past few weeks? You're probably wishing there is a way of training your pet to stay within your property without tying him to a post or holding him prisoner inside a kennel. Fortunately, a pet system training is any pet owner's dream device that reduces the hassles your straying pets bring.
Pet owners may not need to think twice before buying a pet system training, also known as pet containment system. Among the most important reasons that necessitate a pet system training (if your wandering pet is putting you at wit's end) are pet reproductive and health issues, housing covenants, leash laws, or just a practice of courtesy for neighbors.
While there are conventional alternatives to pet system training, including rail, wooden, or chain-link fences these might not fit the family's preferences. What is popularly in demand today are underground or wireless pet fences used as pet training system. The fence, which combines electronics and training technology, can double as a training device.
How pet system training works
Pet system training acts as a correction device only and does not harm pets in any way. In fact, several of the popular models today are endorsed by the ASPCA, the Humane Society of the United States, animal behaviorists, veterinarians, and many other animal advocates.
The pet system training includes two components - a receiver and collar - both of which are battery-powered and interconnected via electronic signals. There are two types of transmitters available today: standard and deluxe. Standard transmitters cover about 25 acres of land while deluxe models cover approximately 100 acres. They also offer various types of training deterrents, such as correction-only, warning, and warning-correction.
When you pet gets too close to the boundary, the collar starts to beep and will eventually fade as your pet continues to ignore the warning. When the beep stops, the collar will emit a correction which range from a mild electric shock or a spray of citronella (neither of which are harmful to animals). As you pet receives the correction each time he strays, he will eventually associate the boundary with the warning or correction.
Pet system training should not be confused as a replacement for obedience training, but rather, it should merely be utilized as a complement to training. With the proper training techniques and mutual respect between owner and pet, pet system training can be an effective supplementary device.
