Only Pet Stop® Pet Fence Systems have GentleSteps™ — the perfect marriage of product technology and the latest light-touch training methods to quickly and easily familiarize your dog with his/her new fencing system.

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. A solution born from experience members of our very own Pet Stop® network of pet fencing professionals theorized that using barely perceptible levels of collar stimulation, just a tickle, during the training phase would speed the training process by reducing stress levels commonly associated with traditional containment training. 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.

Avoiding negative association is far easier with the low fence levels introduced with GentleSteps. Now the gentler training method needed an equally unique training tool, and the Pet Stop® design team was ready for the challenge. By utilizing the most advanced pet fencing system available, you and your Pet Stop Professional will determine the right amount of soft touch required to have your dog learning her new boundaries quickly, and most important, happily.

We recently moved to Chesapeake VA and used Tim and his team to install our invisible fence for our two basset hounds. We were very skeptical at first since hounds are extremely stubborn but after two training session and a final check in and adjustment by Tim in person we haven’t had any issues. We highly recommend it has been wonderful for our hounds!

Better than ever dreamed! Our new puppy needed an electric fence. Pet stop advised me on the best design and then did the training. Our Waffles, an Irish doodle, was trained in 1.5 of the 3 days of training. It is so nice to be able to just let her out of the house versus go outside each time. Also as a runner, I have been so impressed- she is well trained and respects the fence barrier for passing runners and dogs. Definitely would recommend!

These guys were recommended by a friend of mine and they were very responsive and exactly what they said they would do. I tried the remote fences and had success with my last dog but our new puppy could care less about the wireless fence. Tim at Pet Stop gave a guarantee that they would have the dog trained or my money back and it has been a lifesaver.

We decided on using Pet Stop for our invisible dog fence install, and it has been working great. The install took a single day, and they were able to work around some of the specifics on where and how we wanted the fence installed without any issue. The included dog training followed the next day, and the trainer did a great job at showing the dogs how they should react to the fence, and also gave me insight on how to continue the training. Our dogs have adapted perfectly to it, and they can now actually spend time out in the yard around our property without us having to worry about them wondering off into the woods.

They installed an invisible fence at our new house. I am extremely satisfied with the overall customer service that was provided. The installer (I can't recall his name at the moment) was awesome and so was Jillian the trainer. I am beyond thankful for their quick response and how they checked to be sure everything was fine after they left. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for their services.

Tim was quick to respond when we were first interested in installing a fence. This option for fencing was ideal for us due to our property line and we have a power line behind us that would prohibit a traditional fence. We have also used this to enforce the training that we did with our puppy early on. We highly recommend Pet Stop to all of our Dog Lover Friends.
