Rather than attempt to contain your dog with painful zaps, we use a unique gentle approach that has produced outstanding results. Our training method is so effective that owners need to spend only 5-10 minutes, three times a day, during the five-day training phase, to teach pets their new boundaries. Dogs love the training because it is painless, fun, upbeat, and comes with lots of tasty treats!

What Will It Feel Like For My Dog?

GentleSteps™ utilizes ultra-low levels of training collar stimulation during the critical initial training phase that leaves your dog happy and secure in the safety of your yard. The barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation are felt as just a tickle, similar to a static discharge from touching a doorknob. This unique soft-touch training method allows Pet Stop® clients to focus on more positive experiences such as freedom in the yard to run and play

How Long Will The Training Take?

Just like us, each individual pet’s personality and learning curve are different and the pet fencing experts Pet Stop of Central Illinois will customize the training experience to what best suits your pet and provide the initial fence training to get you started. Most pets are trained to the fence in less than 2 weeks, and if your pet requires follow-up training, we will assist you. Contact us today to learn more about our GentleSteps™

Our Gentle Approach

GentleSteps™ Fence Training by Pet Stop of Central Illinois will teach your dog his new hidden fence, and it will do it without frightening or stressing him out. As the name implies, this training uses numerous tiny little steps of harmless static corrections that feel much like tickles.

Customer Reviews

"Caleb is amazing, and offers outstanding customer service! I am so glad we chose Pet Stop. I was skeptic at first, after 30 days I was a believer and now after almost 6 months of having the Pet Stop System we are still loving the fence. Our 3 pit bulls get to run all over our 5 acres and we never have to worry! Excellent investment!"
