For young puppies, use a buckle collar. For older puppies and adult dogs, use a training collar or head collar, either a chain slip collar with medium-sized links, a nylon collar that can be fit around the dogs neck instead of over his head, a prong collar, or a Promise Gentle Leader, depending on personal preference and the dogs behavior. Training collars can be tightened and loosened to teach the dog to quit pulling. Head collars control the dogs head so he cant pull.
Chain Link Collars by Leather Brothers - Drs. Foster and Smith
ADMIN – Hi Don. Any metal fencing has the possibility of amplifying the signal. The Boundary Wire is recommended to be installed 5-10 feet away from metal and/or electromagnetic interference (e.g., metal siding, aluminum siding, metal roof, metal fencing, HVAC equipment, etc) to avoid amplification problems and unintended corrections to the dog’s collar.
With chain link fences, we recommend laying the wire on top of the ground in the location you want and testing the collar to make sure it beeps and corrects at the right location on the perimeter loop. This way, if you need to move the wire closer to or further away from the fence due to signal interference or amplification, you can do so easily. Once the correct location has been determined, then you can bury your wire 1″ – 3″ in the ground or tack it to the surface of the ground using lawn staples to hold it in place.
With jumpers, escape artists, or diggers, we usually recommend laying the wire inside the fence by a foot or two so that they do not even get to the fence to escape. Then you will want to set a wide boundary width for notification. Keep in mind that your dog will not receive a correction until s/he actually crosses the boundary wire.
