Train your Dog to Live Life Off Leash

Properly training to the SpotOn Virtual Fence will allow more freedom for you and your dog

Get Your Pup Using SpotOn in Five Easy Steps

Step 1

Design your fence.

Place the SpotOn flags around the desired containment area.

Step 2

Walk your containment area.

Walk from flag to flag with the SpotOn Collar in hand to set your fence.

Step 3

Select the appropriate correction level.

Start with the lowest level, test the correction, and watch your pup’s behavior to determine the appropriate level and adjust as needed.

Step 4

Teach your dog the cues.

Walk around the perimeter with your pup so he can experience the tones. Use positive reinforcement to encourage your pup to return to the center of the yard when he hears the alert tone.

Step 5

Reinforce the boundary and proof it!

Determine that your pup understands his boundaries and introduce distractions to make sure he stays in the yard with no exceptions.

Why It Works

Unlike other systems, the SpotOn Virtual Fence uses two sets of tones before issuing an optional static correction and never issues a static correction for dogs returning home. See how your dog experiences the tones.

Learning the tones means static correction becomes a true last resort and also will make it easier for your pup to learn his boundaries in new places.

I have trained several dogs on the SpotOn Virtual Fence and love the portability, ease of operation and user-friendly software applications. The smart phone notifications with containment breaches are awesome and the tracking features could be life saving for your dog. This product sells itself with its unparalleled portability, NO wires, and smart device features!
