GentleSteps™ Training

GentleSteps™ Training is Pet Stop® Exclusive, Revolutionary, Humane, Safe & Simple. GentleSteps™ is a modern & incremental conditioning method that reduces commonly encountered stress issues in traditional containment training procedures.

We understand that each dog is unique and has a different temperament. So, we begin by using very low levels of collar stimulation. Just a tickle, during the critical training phase.

Not only do pets learn boundaries faster with GentleSteps™, but training is also fun – whether your pet is sensitive & compliant, or needs more incentive to stay in the yard.

The end result is a happier, healthier, safely contained pet that’s free to roam your property.


How GentleSteps™ Training Works

The days of painfully shocking your pet to teach them their new fence boundaries are in the past! GentleSteps™ training is extremely pet-friendly & humane - using low levels of gradually-increasing correction to gently teach your pet their new fence, with little-to-no-stress, and certainly no painful zaps.

This method was designed to work seamlessly with our products - allowing You or us to train your pet to the fence faster & more efficiently. The use of positive-reinforcement & treats during training can even make GentleSteps™ training fun for both the pet & the owner!

Initial GentleSteps™ Training Session

What Should I Expect?

After we professionally install your boundary wire and mark it with flags, one of our trained technicians will adjust the collar and set it to the lowest level of stimulation resembling a “tickle.” He will lead your pet on leash into the boundary and then back to safety several times at different locations.

Rather than attempt to contain your dog with painful zaps, we use a unique gentle approach that has produced outstanding results. 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!

Options Available

This is our most economical and recommended training package to get started with.

Pet Stop® Brand systems are so pet friendly and user friendly that we rarely need to return onsite for further training assistance.

Once we have completed the initial GentleSteps™ training session with your dog(s) as well as your observation and participation, you will be much better able to determine if you want or need more onsite assistance from us.

Most people realize very quickly that they will be able to handle the following days of training as long as they can rely on us for text, email and phone support when they have questions.

Our goal is to get you started with the least amount of expense and encourage you to be an active part of the process as your dog(s) learns the new boundary.

You can add our training insurance package at any time you determine you want us to return for more onsite assistance.

***Always remove the fence collar from your dog's neck at night while they sleep. Failure to do this will result in sores developing where the probes make contact with your dog's neck if the fence collar is left in place for longer than 5-7 days.
