Will My Dog Receive a Static Correction For Returning to the Safe Zone?0 comments
Fact vs. Myth
Learn how the audible tones and static correction work with SpotOn
Unlike other systems out there, SpotOn NEVER issues a correction for dogs returning home. Sung Vivathana, SpotOn's VP of Engineering, explains:
‘If your dog accidentally leaves the containment area, they will not be corrected on their way back. SpotOn knows the direction of your dog and if your dog is going back to the safe zone, the corrections system will be turned off and your dog will not be corrected.’
Dog Training for Virtual Fences
The SpotOn training program focuses on training to return to the center of the yard at the sound of the tones, rather than training to the consequence of the static correction. This not only allows static correction to be a true last resort, but it allows him to associate the tones in a positive manner. Tone = come back to the safe zone where good things happen, like treats and praise!
Just like humans, dogs can make mistakes too. In the rare occurrence that your dog accidentally leaves his containment area, you don't have to worry about him being scared to come back in. He will NOT get a correction for doing the right thing by coming back home. Instead, he will get a reminder, through the 2 audible tones and a vibration, to return to his safe zone.
At SpotOn, we understand that every dog is unique, with a range of abilities and personalities. That's why we offer a Training Guide and training videos to help you train your pup to the system, and why static correction is optional, so you can figure out what works best for your pup.
