Will the corrections used hurt my pet?
Here at Coastal Pet Fence, we love pets and the last thing we’d do is use any product that could cause them harm. Pet Stop’s highly advanced, highly customizable products allow us to use extremely low levels of correction, mere tickles, to gently warn your pet away from their fence boundaries. The amount of energy used in a correction is comparable to a carpet’s static shock – just enough to startle, but not enough to hurt.
Dog Fencing Product FAQ’s
Are your products compatible with other fencing systems, such as Invisible Fence®?
Yes, many of our products have been designed for cross-compatibility with Invisible Fence® in mind. Our products are also cross-compatible with most other electronic dog fencing systems available on the market.
Can your system and products handle multiple pets at once?
Certainly! Our systems can handle multiple pets, with customized settings and areas for each individual.
How long do batteries typically last?
The life of your receiver collar batteries are dependent on how often your pet tests the boundaries. Most batteries last from 3 months to a year. When your battery is running low, our patented FlashAlert feature will let you know so you can switch the batteries out.
Pet Fence Training FAQ’s
How long will it take to train my dog to the fence?
Most pets are trained to the fence in a couple of weeks. In most cases, pets only experience correction once or twice and quickly learn to respond to the warning signal, but since every pet is a unique individual, the time to train your pet to the fence may vary.
Are there any age or size limits my pet must meet before being trained to the fence?
We recommend that your pet be at least 8 weeks of age and well-adjusted to their home environment before fence training starts. Also your pet needs to be comfortable walking on a leash and wearing a collar. There is no minimum/maximum size limits – we train dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes!
