Train Your Dog Not to be Nervous with Guests

Posted by on March 21, 2017 8:22 pm in Dog Fences, Dog Guard, Dog Guard USA

I was in Palm City on Saturday installing a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a new client and his Bull Terrier, Rocky. (Did you know that General George Patton and Colonel Pappy Boyington (WWII) also had Bull Terriers?)  Well, the installation went quite well and we were able to train Rocky on Saturday afternoon.  He quickly understood that it would be far better to stay around the yard instead of running down the street after kids on bicycles or the mailman.  As we were finishing up, my client wondered if he could ask a...

A Calm and Great Walk Does Not Start Crazy

I was in Okeechobee last week installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® System for a client and his Labradoodle, Sasha. The installation went pretty smoothly because he didn’t have a log of bushes, paved walkways and other hardscape to transverse.  I got the entire project finished in less than two days.  We trained Sasha to stay near the house and away from the perimeter.  She learned very quickly and things were great.  My client was very happy with the system and the results of the initial training.  As we were finishing up,...

Make Sure Your Dog Does Not Nip Your Heals

I was in West Palm Beach last Thursday installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a client and his Border Collie named Jamison.  Jamison loved to jump the fence and chase after all the neighbors.  Being a herding dog, he then loved to “herd them” and play with them.  Most of them didn’t find this as fun as Jamison and they were excited that we were doing something to curtail the problem.  The great news is that the installation went quite well and Jamison quickly learned that it would be better to stay...

The Importance of Feeling Confident with Your Dog

I was at a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® client in Southwest Ranches last week installing his new fence for his Bull Mastiff, Rocko.  Rocko is a rather large dog and likes to muscle his way through partially closed gates and holes in the fence.  With a property in excess of three acres, it was a never ending battle between my client and Rocko in finding new openings and trying to repair them.  The underground dog fence eliminated the issue instantly and Rocko quickly responded to the perimeter training.  My client was very happy...

Why Playtime with Your Dog is Important

I was in Coral Springs last Tuesday installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a client and his Doberman named Francis.  I love Dobies because they are really just happy, friendly dogs.  That was the big problem with Francis.  She always wanted to greet everyone in the neighborhood.  The neighbors loved her, but it was a very large inconvenience for my client.  After our first training session, Francis understood that she would have to greet neighbors, friends, and guests when they came to her house.  No more wandering...

How to Have Your Dog Meet and Greet Other Dogs

I was in Naples last week installing a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® system for a new client and his Cocker Spaniel named Buddy.  Buddy liked to jump over the back fence and explore all over the neighborhood.  This made it very inconvenient for my client and he wanted his Spaniel to stay put in the yard.  I installed the fence with the wire along the top of his current fence to create a “no fly” zone for Buddy.  It worked perfectly.  He still had all the yard to run and jump.  He could even get close to the bottom of the fence. ...

Why It Is Important You Go Through the Door Before Your Dog

I was in Palm Beach last Friday finishing up a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® project for a new client and his German Short Haired Pointer named Helga.  Helga liked to squeeze under the back fence and get into the neighbor’s flower bed to dig.  Needless to say, my client’s neighbor was not a big fan of that activity.  As soon as we finished the installation and started the training, Helga no longer wanted to squeeze under the fence and get into the neighbor’s flower bed.  Our training continued with Helga to show her that there...

Your Relationship with Your Dog is Based on Your Rules, Not Others

I was in Jupiter last week repairing a broken fence line for a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® client and his Catahoula named Mollie.  I had installed the system about three years ago and Mollie hasn’t wandered off the property since then.  Unfortunately, they were doing some farm work in the back of the property and their tractor pulled up and broke the perimeter cable.  The problem was pretty obvious and I had the system up and running very quickly.  As I was finishing up, my client asked me “Should I pay attention to what my...

Potty Training a Dog That is Just Stubborn

Posted by on December 25, 2016 11:47 am in Dog Fences, Dog Guard, Dog Guard USA

I was in Loxahatchee last Wednesday installing a new Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® System for a client and his Shiba Inu named Hillary.  They were on a five-acre property, but he only wanted Hillary to wander on the grass near the house.  The installation was pretty straightforward and Hillary quickly understood that it was better to stay near the house than wander towards the far end of the property.  As we were finishing up, my client asked me about another dog he had recently purchased.  This dog was a Shiba Inu puppy. The biggest...

When You Are Riding Your Bike and a Dog Chases You

Posted by on December 11, 2016 12:22 pm in Dog Fences, Dog Guard, Dog Guard USA

I was in Coconut Creek last week working on a Dog Guard Out of Sight Fencing® installation for a new client and his Boxer, Sparky.  Sparkey, like all Boxers, loved to run all around the yard.  The problem was that he also loved to run out of the yard.  He loved to visit the neighbors and chase after the Mail Man, joggers, kids on bikes, etc.  Needless to say, this was not making my new client the most popular person in the neighborhood.  We got the system installed and Sparkey trained in two days.  Sparkey quickly learned that it was...
