Train your pup without leaving the couch
Just about every pet owner is familiar with the concept of invisible fences. Wire is imbedded in the ground, the dog wears a collar that gives and uncomfortable – but not too intense – jolt when it crosses the line and viola! no need to put up an unsightly fence, or go to the work of training your pet to stay within certain confines.
Now this concept is being applied to indoor training as well. Petstreetmall.com is having a sale on what they call “indoor pet containment systems” which apply the same idea to training your pooch to stay off the counter, away from the front door, and so on.
We had an invisible fence for my beagle in one of the houses we lived in growing up – and she maybe crossed that line once or twice. It can be an effective tool, but I was never fond of the idea of “jolting” my precious princess – no matter how low the voltage.
If that’s you’re opinion, there are other options for indoor training as well. Take this one which only emits a mist of water when it senses your dogs motion near an undesired space.
That seems much more humane to me, and a lot easier – no collars to remember! And it sure beats sitting on the sofa with a spray bottle waiting for your dog to try and jump up.
The cheapest collar-based indoor training system is on sale starting at $69.99.
The water-misting system is 34.99.
