Will my dog receive a static correction on his way back in to the safe zone?

Q&A with Sung, VP of Engineering

Watch as Sung, VP of Engineering, explains how the audible tones and static correction work with SpotOn!

Unlike other systems out there, SpotOn NEVER issues a correction for dogs returning home. 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 accidently 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, we will get a reminder, through the 2 audible tones, to return to his safe zone.

At SpotOn, we understand that every dog is unique. That is why we offer three distinct training programs designed to work with a range of canine abilities and personalities. Take our short Training Quiz to determine which one is right for you and your pup!
