Invisible Fence Dog Training: Find Out How Treats Will Do the Trick, Newtown, Connecticut

Invisible fences are designed to give your dog more freedom while keeping them safe and contained. Think of them as light restrictions without physical boundaries, but just because they're in place doesn't mean your dog will automatically know how to handle them. Invisible fences require their own unique style of dog training, and there are a handful of techniques that have proven particularly fruitful. Calming treats are one such method, and the trick to their effectiveness lies within some very unique ingredients.

The Power of Calming Treats

Before we get into the treats themselves, it helps to understand why a system like this works for invisible fence training. To smoothly acclimate your pet to the boundaries of the dog fence, a combination of correction and reward is ideal. When your dog violates those boundaries, they should be corrected; on the other hand, successfully avoiding the perimeter calls for a reward. 

Invisible FenceCalming treats are used as a reward not just because dogs love treats but because the in-home pet training process tends to be stressful. Most calming treats are known as such thanks to various ingredients that will calm your dog without altering their personality. 

One of the ingredients commonly used is colostrum, which is another name for the first milk produced by cows and other mammals. In addition to beneficial proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, and more, colostrum provides protection against environmental, mental, and physical stress. Even when dogs are exposed to new stressors, colostrum will keep them going without compromising their physical condition.

Now that you know what calming treats are, the next step is finding the right one for your dog. Incorporate your dog's personal preferences into the decision, and you'll have an even more essential dog training tool at your disposal. 

Every dog will benefit from the affordable, effective boundaries that Invisible Fence of Newtown provides to pet owners throughout Connecticut. From installation to a four-step training program, they will have your pet safely roaming free in no time.
