Why SpotOn dog training works
Unlike other systems, the SpotOn's GPS dog fence uses two sets of tones before issuing a vibration or optional static correction and never issues a static correction for dogs returning home.
The first tone, the alert tone, tells the dog they are at the edge of their fence. Using this program, you'll train them to return to the center of the fence when they hear it. This tone is played when approaching the fence boundary as well as when a dog leaves and returns home.
The warning tone is harsher and played just before a vibration or correction is issued at the boundary.
Mastering the tones means static correction becomes a true last resort. Dog boundary training will also make it easier for your dog to learn his or her boundaries in new places.
All dogs are different, so don’t worry if it takes a little longer than expected to train your dog to the boundary lines. Keep training sessions quick and fun. It’s less stressful on you and your dog! If you run into trouble, we are here to help!

First, learn how to set static correction
You won’t need static correction right away but it’s good to understand how it works and how to find the right level for your dog when you are ready to introduce it.
Training Video 1: Learning the tones and the boundary line.
Get your dog ready for life unleashed by training him to recognize alert and warning tones at the fence boundaries. It’ll take a little commitment and consistency, we recommend practicing for about 15 minutes a day for a week or so.

Now it's time to introduce distractions to be sure your dog understands the boundary. After that, you can drop the leash, and spend time outside with your dog to be sure you are close by while he gets used to the GPS dog fence. Once you and your pup are comfortable, he can live life unleashed!
