At what age can a dog use an invisible fence?
At DogFence we recommend that your puppy is a minimum of 12 weeks to start training to an Invisible Fence and where possible 16 weeks is ideal. Whilst we appreciate that some brands advise from 8 weeks old at DogFence we feel this is too young.
It is important that your puppy has the maturity to understand that training for the invisible fence. If you are keen to get your puppy started quickly then follow these simple steps and this will assist with his ability to learn how to use the invisible fence.
- Make sure he is happy to walk on a lead. The majority of the Invisible fence training is carried out on a lead.
- Make sure is accepting some basic verbal commands, nothing fancy but a sit and come will help.
- Try to get him to interact with strangers – the more confident your puppy is the easier it will be for him to learn.
- Do not place the training flags – our Installer will do this on the day of his visit.
