Wearing the correction collar?

by Gajan Retnasaba on April 7, 2009

Reader Question:  Once my dog learns the system, can I let them stop wearing the collar?

We wouldn’t.  Once the dog has learnt to work with the dog fence, they will usually stay in out of habbit, not testing the boundaries.  So it is often tempting to not put on the dog’s correction collar in the morning, reasoning that it is completely unnecessary.

Most of the time if you forget ot put on the collar nothing will happen.  But, the risk is that the dog will on one of those days accidently stray across the line and receiving no static correction think that they no longer have to obey their boundaries.

Training your dog to obey the fence and associate it with the correction took some work.   Why risk undoing all that work?  And why risk your dog’s safety on that day?  We would not take that risk with our dogs.
